Why does blonde hair darken with age?
I was born blonde, but my hair has turned to a medium brown color over time. Every Year it gets darker. All of the blondes I know either dye their hair or have just let it turn dark. Is there any way to stop it?
Blonde hair, as we all know, gets even blonder with exposure to the sun. The more sun, the more blonde a person (already blonde of course) is. The less sun, the opposite is naturally true. I believe at that point in a person's (blonde of course) life when they discover the pleasures of facebook, hubpages, texting and all other forms of modern, (anti)social media, they begin to spend much more time inside, in dark rooms with curtains pulled and doors closed.This, I'm sure we all agree, is the source of blonde hair becoming darker as a person (blonde of course) ages.
My sister had blonde hair when she was young and as she's gotten older it has literally turned a brown/black. I wonder if genetics played a role or if there's a grain of truth to what cam8510 said here as she didn't spend much time outdoors and with each passing year it got darker.
I have naturally brown hair that gets lighter or turns red during summer months with swimming in salt and chlorinated water. If the ends of my hair get dry they turn red in color as well.
However, I've also seen blue eyed children of various races whose blue eye color turns brown. You've asked a fascinating question, doubt I've helped you find a definitive answer though.
My hair was blonde, but turned a medium brown by the time I was in my early to mid-20s. If I'm out in the sun a lot, it gets lighter again. If your hair tends to get natural highlights in the summer, then your hair might just need more sunlight to go back to blonde. The good thing is if your hair does this, dark roots don't show drastically as it would with one who colors it.
