What to eat/apply to prevent hair from turning blond in the sun

I know that hair is a reflection of what you eat, and my hair has gotten thicker since I've started eating healthier, but it still turns from brown to this yucky brassy blond from exposure to the sun, even whine I cover it up and would use leave-in conditioner. Is this inevitable? Something to do with my race/genetics? Something missing from my diet? Why does some brown hair turn blond in the sun, but not others?

UV lightens hair like that if you're out in it enough.

Not "paleo" or anything, but try a purple (google Shimmer lights) or blue-violet shampoo (Aveda makes a good one) to remove the brassiness as needed.

Mine and my sons hair does the same. Darker blonde in the winter to super blonde in the summer. I have been told it really has something to do with helping with Vitamin D production and basic sun bleaching.

I think it's a reaction to the sun. My hair goes from dirty blond-almost brown in the winter. To almost straw blond in the summer. And it would turn white when I was a kid. Lighter hair just gets sun bleached.

Many types of hair types bleach in the sun, even through fabric if exposed long enough. If your hair is suddenly growing in blond - even the hair not exposed to the sun - then something's up.
