    Since the sun bleaches your hair esp if you have light colour hair, has it gone lighter or stays the same?

    For reasons I don't fully understand, about half of my body hair turns white in the summer, while the other half remains dark brown/maybe black (touch to tell with it so short). I don't think the hair on my head changes in the summer.

    Thanks! I started turning gray at 25 and it just kept getting more gray every year.

    Not this summer, as I don't get out much. But back in the day I was one of those brunettes that got wisps of red with sun exposure (pictured, from The Year of the Flood, CLOTHED!). No redheads in my family but my stubble always had a smattering of red. Now that I'm older and ivory complexioned from decades as an office mole my hair goes medium brown on occasion, excepting a few gray hairs which only show up outdoors in full sun. (I get accused of dyeing it.) Thus concludes my substantive post for the week.

    My hair always bleaches out in the summer. Thanks to my job and the fact I always have it in a braid, it gets great highlights! icon_razz.gif I actually have friends that want to know where I get my hair done to look so Natural. The Jokes on them, it IS naturalicon_biggrin.gif

    It lightens, both naturally and chemically enhanced by my hair stylist. icon_lol.gif
