Why the sun darken our skin and lighten our hair

Dark skin and hair is caused by melanin, a pigment that protects us from damage from UV rays. The big difference between skin and hair is that skin is alive, whereas hair, except at the root, is dead! The sun triggers more melanin production in skin, but destroys melanin in hair that is already dead.
