    Question Age and Eye/Hair-Colour-shifting

    Does ones eye colour enfact grow lighter or darquer as one ages? Untill what age does this shade-variation-shift occur? Is it a life-length process? I know that within very young ages, eyes additionally shift not merely 'twixt shades, but 'twixt colours as well. For enstance, I had blue eyes untill I was about one year and ˝ winters young -I wil attach fotos in the Childhood pics thread later- and then they slowly grew darquer untill I was about 17 and however have been somewhat lightening in colour over the last few years with green; I am 23 winters young now. My father has blue eyes and my mother has green/hasel, so this would not be out-of-the-question. I find for this interesting and would like to disguss on this with every one here and perhaps hear any of your personal experiences at this mattre as well.

    Hair colour seems more susceptible to this notion of shade-shifting. Most of us have light hairs when bourne and watch them darquen to varying degrees as we age every winter. Hair-heterogeneousness -for lacking over a better term- seem as well common. For enstance, I have a beard at the moment and tis ginger-haired, which would have been medium brown a shorter while ago, whilst my father through out his life had medium brown hairs at his head, as I do, but blonde facial hairs i.e. he has a blonde mustache. From this I assume I would believe that hair-heterogeneousness -or a lacking thereof i.e. hair-colouring homogeny- within a single individual is enfact passed down from generation to generation. What does every one feel on such a claim? Thank you for your thoughts at the issues raised herein.

    Very good questions! I have been thinking of bringing them up myself as well, but I'm too shy. During the last months I think I've been noticing a shifting in hair colour, from light brown it has been looking more and more dark blonde at diffrent instances. I guess it could be the lighting that differs but I think not. Also I've heard that much exposure to the sun in summertime would lighten your hair, any comments on that?

    Darkening of hair and eye may be related to increase of testosterone. I was also born blue-eyed, now my eyes are green/hazel. It is said that dark eyes tend to lighten with old age as well.

    Younger people usually don't have as much pigmentation.

    For example, black babies are born kind of a brick color. Not all the pigmentation is there, so you can actually see hue blood gives you through their pigmentation.

    This is kind of a shame, because just when women get used to their "natural color," they find that it's changing on them... So they bleach their hair.

    Not quite what I can add about some of the other issues.

    All white children have light blue eyes at birth due to lack of melanin (I believe that is the chemical) in their bodies, but at 4 months to 2 years the body's melanin pdoduction begins and the eyes may darken and become the permanent color.

    Oskorei and I discussed this briefly at Skadi a long time ago, he is convinced I am a freak of nature. 3:

    My hair has gone from blonde at birth, to bright red for years until i was about 4, then slowly went reddish brown, then brown, at the height of puberty my testosterone levels had made it VERY dark brown, and it has now returned to a medium brown with blonde highlights, and my beard is about half medium brown half blonde; the roots of my hair also are blonde. In addition my eyes went from blue, to a darker "sea" blue when i was around 7, they then turned mostly green with some blue and SouthernBoy's famous Yellow Ring(tm) but they do not have much pigment - they tend to reflect the colours of the clothing I wear. One day blue, one day green, another day light-mixed. They are almost identical to Louhi's eyes when they come up green, to give you an idea.

    My Maternal side of the family is entirely blue eyed with a mixture of blonde, red, and occasional light brown hair - my Paternal side of the family is all grey and blue eyed, with mostly light brown and darker blonde shades of hair. Most are not alive to show me their eyes and were too dead when colour photos were invented to see them all evidentially. I suppose there is a green eye or two in there somewhere, though I can't imagine where. It seems that puberty and maturation have definitive impact on pigmentation, though I believe it is only to the degrees available within the individual's specific genetic range for such things.

    This is true, and I would add that exposure to natural light(UV inparticular) is, as I understand it, the main catalyst for the full maturation of the melanin in the eye.

    :laugh: It's not as complicated as it seems. Just medium brown hair with blonde highlights and pale "light-mixed" eyes i guess. If you shrunk all those years of pigment change down in to one paragraph, though, you'd get a kaleidoscope - must be what you're dizzy from, bror :
