    Seasonal Change in Hair Color

    Something I have seemed to notice about my blonde friends, is that their hair, which is somewhere around medium-dark blonde, turns a brown color during the winter months. (yes, I am 100% sure they are natural blondes and do not dye it!)

    It would also appear that my medium brown hair has turned to lighter brown, although this could just have been due to the lighting or something, as I don't often closely observe my hair.

    Maybe it has something to do with how the sunlight reflects in their hair?

    The same happens with me. My hair currently is a dirty blond, but in spring it begins to turn a bit golden, and then in summer you can notice streaks of red and orange in it. I know many who are envious of my hair color

    I know you are talking about, within a single year, but my hair, when i was a kid, was reddish blond, strawberry blond i believe its called, and both me and my sister hair got darker brown of the years, and my eyes has went from blue to green.

    Most people's hair and eyes change from when they are a kid to when they get older, but I am talking about older people who seem to go back and forth every season.

    My hair is blonde and it always lightens during the summer, almost to platinum; in winter it goes back to yellow-gold blonde.

    Same here! I guess it's because we have a blonde base with a darker tone.
    The colour we had as choldrens often fits us to dye when we get older.
    Help me get classified! Any comment is most welcome*

    Testosterone makes your hair thicker and thus appear darker. That is why men's hair usually darkens as they go through puberty.

    But just wait, in 20 years or so it will begin to lighten up.

    Good God I must have a lot of testosterone then, seeing that my hair is thicker and darker than anyone else's in my family.

    It also lightens up in summer although it's getting very stiff in connection with Mediterranean salt water.
