    Post Blonde Hair Going Dark/Black

    One thing I have noticed among a great part of German people I know (including my father), is that, they are born with VERY light hair, if not completely blonde (such as in the case of my father), but with age, their hair darkens.

    With my father, when he was young, he had very blonde hair, and even more-so in the summer when it was bleach-blonde, but, with age, his hair has become more and more dark, to the point where now, it is jet-black (where it's not going grey )

    Does anyone know the reasons behind this? And why does it seem, that it's mostly Germans that this happens to? (personal experience suggests to myself that this is true).

    This applies to all people. I had golden blonde hair until I was 16.
    It can even be opposite. I know blonde people that were born with black hair and had dark hair a couple of years until it gradually changed..

    It's strange, but on my father's father's side, the children (his father, uncles and aunts) were blond as teenagers, but gradually darkened as they got older, becoming almost black-haired in their 40s. But on his mother's side, several of them had blonde hair mixed with grey when they died in their 80s. They were all Americans of 100% German ancestry from several different regions of Germany, with mixtures of Hallstatt, Borreby, Corded, a little Alpine, Dinaric and what appeared to be some kind of Berid-like brunette type.

    it happened to my father but not for me or at least not at all, in sense that i'm still blonde clearly but not as blond as i was small (at that age i was looking like albinist)

    My grandfather from Neaples remained blond too.

    Article Eight of the Italian Labour Charter of 1926 states, "The corporate State considers that private enterprise in the sphere of production is the most effective and useful instrument in the interest of the nation." The employer and the employee must be made to work harmoniously in the interest of the nation.

    Anyone who is born blonde can not turn "jet black" with age. I haven't seen anyone who was born with flaxen hair exceed medium brown, but those with dark blonde may reach dark brown, but never black.

    I'm 57 and I'll tell you what happened to me. I was born with blond hair so light it was white. At about 13 it began to darken at the roots but, being a beach boy, it bleached out at once. About 18, it became dark blond as I left the beach. It just got darker until about 30 when I changed the color on my driver's license from blond to brown. It got a lot darker at about 35 when I began taken L-Arginine (an amino acid base, DNA building block) as a food suppliment (it does wonders for recovery from severe exercise). Along with the hair darkening came other side-affects such as thickening of the skin. Meanwhile, the beard became brown and the hair around the mouth became dark-blond. Now, it is all turning grey but the hair on the eyebrows is still blond.

    I would have totally agreed if I haven't seen it myself. The usual process is very light blond(e) hair in childhood darkening to a reasonable degree of brown but sometimes radical pigmentation occurs rarely among people of several Mediterranean branches. The baby is born depigmented displaying blonde hair and light blue eyes but just by the age of 3-4 the hair turns jet black and eyes turn dark brownish variety. But I don't think someone who displayed blondism through adolescence would somehow evolve black hair just by aging.

    Samething happened to me and my brother and mother and her siblings. However, I am of Northern Italian accestory and family's surname is Bianchi.
    Which means:

    Definition: From "bianco," meaning 'white,' this surname was often given to a person who was white-haired or had a very light complexion.

    I think I have Germanic blood in me. I would think the hair changing color is a central european trait(Germany/Switzerland/Italy/Austria)

    Here is a pic of my brother as a child

    It has a lot to do with nature... youth have lighter hair and it darkens as they get older. Light hair is a major indicator of youth and can be there for the more fertile stages- that is espcially with females. The hair gets dakers as years go on, then it is darker for years until turning gray to white or just white for Redheads usually.
