    Longer hair lives to see more days of sun than shorter hair. It is often visible that people with long hair have a lighter tone at the ends of their hair, and a darker tone closer to the roots (excluding people who bleach or dye their hair). This happens to me as well, and is quite noticeable.

    Why? What percentage should it have been at? I'm not saying fair hair is the only trait valued in sexual selection, but to say it is irrelevant would be to ignore historical facts. In Norse mythology, for example, a lot of value is placed on fair hair, albeit not in a manner directly pertaining to sexual selection. Then there's the example of the European slave trade, where blonde women were higher praised than women of other complexions. And Roman and Greek women wearing blonde wigs made from the hair of Northern European women. And must I mention the obsession with blonde women in the porn industry?

    In regards to sun bleaching, this often is better during Summer or in some tropical climate when Europeans (even brunettes) turn lighter.
    Europe doesn't get that much vibrant hot everlasting sunlight as it's a cooler climate with darker days. Winter is the most dominant season in Europe, this also includes cold snaps in Spring. The light hair and blondeness isn't down to ice and snow either, because non Europeans in other parts of the world are blonde. The people of the Solomon Islands are natural blonde. Snow again:
    Polar bears have white fur with transparent glassy strands, which they say causes white fur.
    Children are more blonde than adults. Females are fairer haired than their brothers and fathers. There is the phrase "Baby Blonde". On some brunettes it's possible to notice blonde coloured down on the arms, ect.
    Blonde features are a bit more recessive in sons than in daughters.
    Anyway it's very strange.

    I don't believe that or what the article/study claims whatsoever. It does not reflect reality. There are many girls who have darker or lighter hair, just as there are many guys who have darker or lighter hair. There are many girls who have darker hair than guys and so on. It doesn't matter whether they are siblings or not.

    You should already know that "study" is questionable when it states something like this as well,

    “We thought it might have something to do with the attraction of women for darker skinned men and vice versa - but we don't think the genes are any different,” Spector explained.
    As I already said, this subject simply comes down to the fact that girls lighten their hair far more often than guys.

    It doesn't matter. If you don't believe in it's results, then you should get in touch with them and explain it to them. The study comes from 300,000 people and done by a scientific team. It doesn't say on there that women can't have dark hair or that men can't have light hair.

    You should already know that "study" is questionable when it states something like this as well,
    Well I disagree with their comment also about that because it's generalising women. That comment is ignorant but the study itself is just saying out of 300,000 people, the women were lighter. As for dyeing of hair, LOL, the test was made using samples of DNA.

    The article doesn't talk about race or brown eyed children born from light eyed parents. You must be referring to a different article from the one I posted. My post #52 was in reply to the question of the thread, not aimed at your previous posts or anyone else's answers on the thread that I've not even gone through 6 pages of it. I understand you don't agree with scientific research. What;s the name of the geneticists that said race doesn't exist?

    Genes aren't the same as they vary from person to person. Males have a Y chromosome and one X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes. Males have 80 extra genes than females. Among individuals there are varied genes and mutations. The article talks about DNA from 300,000 people. This other article I'm posting describes more about DNA in details: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/05/19/the_odd_body_chromosomes_genes/

    You seem to read very literally and not into context. The point is that just because x "geneticist" claims something does not inherently make it true. Any time something involving genes is claimed then it must be heavily scrutinized. There is no proof or explanation for their claim in any case, merely a claim. They even admit it themselves.

    First of all, one of a female's X chromosomes is switched off in x-inactivation, and the Y carries nothing for our body on it (male expression genes), only activator genes. I am sure you like most people have no idea what the Y actually does or what it carries. Most people believe "guy make guy, girl make girl," which is false. The genes carried and passed down are all the same for males and females of the same race, and there are no gender-expressed hair color genes. They are again the same for males and females so the study's claim simply doesn't make any sense. There is no explanation for any mechanism of why their claim would be true. It also does not reflect in reality. Maybe you want to believe you are special or something, I don't know. You can believe what you like but I am not going to debate it any further.

    It took you a couple of days to post that.
    Did you ask someone for help in replying or something?
    Anyway I came on here to post about hair colour. You chose to argue with me on the subject, not the other way round. If you disagree with what I posted, you could always write to the geneticists and scientists themselves and explain how the topic makes you feel. Due to the iffy way you've been talking to me on here, I'm giving you the silent treatment.
