Color Fading - faster in sunlight?

Now that I've acheived a color with which I feel comfortable, do I need to protect it?  What about sunlight - will it fade the hendigo brunette?  If so, as it fades, does the color turn more red/auburn?

Re: Color Fading - faster in sunlight?

Based on my own observation, while sun exposure can fade your underlying hair color through the plant dyes to some extent (but less than without the dyes), it doesn't seem to fade the dyes themselves. Henna fades very slowly if at all for most people. Indigo may fade on first few uses (not from sun - simply because it hasn't attached permanently) but once it sticks, it doesn't fade from sun exposure.
