Hair loss.

Hi everyone, started my first chemo last week, so far so good, trying the cold cap, desperate to save my hair. With this coming weekend forecast to be warm and sunny, I just wanted to know, can exposing your hair to the sun cause probable hair loss? Not sure if I should wear a hat or not.
