May go down in cafemom history a one of the dumbest questions, but....

Posted by   + Show Post
How can I keep DDs hair from being lightened from the sun?
I love her beautiful black hair, but being in the sun is changing its color!
Mine is the same, dark brown to medium brown. But that doesn't bother me.
But I just love her hair color so much, lol. I don't want hers to change!

*edit*
The obvious answer is a hat, but what kid would want or keep a hat on while running around and playing? Lol :)

Some leave in conditioners have protection in them. Aldo target has sun hats with UV protection.

Coconut oil. Google coconut oil for hair. Many women in India use coconut oil as a conditioner and they say it help prevent grey hairs so it may work with the sun.

I was thinking its weird how sun will lighten one persons hair and not the next. lol My daughter has dark brown hair and in the summer she gets those blondish highlights i mentioned in my last reply but i got to thinking my sons hair color never changes. He has black hair and no matter how long hes in the sun its always the same color. lol humm something to ponder haha

There is probably a product that you can buy to protect her hair.  I would google it.

Hair that is truly black doesn't lighten. Perhaps it's a very dark brown and you're seeing the highlights?

My moms hair doesn't change!
She also has dark black, and her hair looks like it had almost a purple shine in the sun. But it doesn't change the color.
DDs is already changing from only a few weeks of nicer weather!
