The sun light actually can bleach and destroys the melanin in our hair that further makes it become lighter and the dead hair's colour stay in that colour until new hair grow. Furthermore, the sun light also destroys the melanin in our skin. Yet, since our skin is alive, therefore it responds to the sun's damage that further initiates the skin's cells make more melanin and our skin becomes darker.
