Hi i am a new member
I want to know something
I was whitish blonde when i was born and stayed that way til i am 12-13
I have soo white skin like my fathers family and my uncles are blonde but my father has darker hair ( funny he has blonde eyelashes and eyebrows)
We are turkish and my dads family all blonde this is kinda rare in turkey so i like it
but my hair and eyelashes and eyebrows keep darkening!!
But interestingly my feathers on my body on my legs are white why arent they darkening too?
I want to be platinium blonde like i was couple years ago
I know melanin and genes causes this and our genes are not changing so why melanin makes us darker or lighter? Is is possible to have light colored hair and eyelashes and eyebrows for me again?? I mean no chance ? Even 0.000001?

Ps : i am soo sorry about my english :/

I'm thinking you didn't really mean feathers unless you're referring to a different kind of turkey?

It's normal for hair to darken up to a certain age- I was quite blonde when I was a small child, but it darkened as I aged. I couldn't tell you what color it is today though.

The great thing about being a woman in 2012 is that it's quite easy to change the color of your hair. If you want to be blonde, go for it!

Maybe you should try to focus on something more important....such as improving your English.

She didn't ask you to make snarky comments about her English. I had white hair as a child up until high school. My hair is now medium brown. Ie always had darker eye lashes and eye browns. My eyes are hazel.

So how's your Turkish?

To the OP - sorry, but the natural blond is gone for good. You can always dye it like most women.

Dye it. It's not coming back.

I was born with black hair. Mine changed to light brown with blonde highlights between about ages 4 and 9.

I don't think Calipoppy was mocking the OP for her English, but if she cares enough to apologize about her English, it'd be a better concern than her hair color.

Also I don't know if the OP thinks light coloring is some sort of status symbol because she pointed out that it's rare in Turkey.

I'm pretty sure she doesn't need perfect English in turkey. Half of the posters on city data can't even speak proper English.
