Hair Bleaching by Color

I read the answer to a question regarding why the sun
bleaches your hair, but I would like more specifics. Why is it that
medium blondes and light brunettes seem to get more sun bleaching than
those with dark hair? How much exposure to the sun does it take for it
to damage the hair?
"Medium blondes and light brunettes" have less pigment in their hair to
begin with. Darker hair has more pigment. I cannot answer the "how much
exposure ... " question because so much depends on the amount of pigment
originally present, the condition of the hair, the intensity of the
sunlight, and the length of exposure.
