I am a natural blonde, even as a 30+ year old woman! Its a light caramel blonde color naturally -- though I dye it. Right now, I've let my color fade out and it looks very nice. My natural blonde, some brownish red (my dyed color) peeking through. It looks like highlights, but it is my natural color coming in. All is blended so nicely and I love it at the moment!

Without dye, I am a light caramel blonde... pretty color but it gets boring after awhile which is why I have it colored periodically.

My wife is one. She's annoyed with all the bottle blondes running around America these days, she dislikes being thought of as one of those! And don't even get her started on what she thinks of enhanced breasts.

As the old Braniff ads used to say, "When you got it--flaunt it!"

Sounds like my story! I'm 67, of Norwegian and English descent, and still definitely blond, as are our two grown daughters (and most of our grandchildren, who are still very young).

My sister, my sister-in-law, my daughter, and my uncle all have naturally blond hair. We're of mostly Swedish stock.

I thought I'd pop in with an observation of an interesting phenomenon I've noticed about natural adult blondes--I work with a couple of them and while I'm not 100% positive they're not bottle blondes, I'm pretty sure. What I have noticed about all two of these people is that they have to have the climate in the room about 20 degrees cooler than everyone else and they freeze us all out. One of them is my boss and we went to a seminar last Halloween and shared a hotel room. I vowed to bring my very warmest PJ's if we ever do that again b/c she had the A/C going the entire time--in late October, in Missouri! We have meetings in her office and everyone knows to bring their warmest sweater and while we're freezing, she is sweating. LOL, she's not even menopausal yet so I hate to think what her life will be like when she is.

So, those of you on here who say you are natural adult blonde, do you suffer from this as well? I'm guessing it's the Scandinavian genes.

I guarantee you that if everyone could see everyone else butt naked, the supposed "natural blonde" population/touters would diminish by at least half. LOL!

Yeah, a lot of us humans start off as toe heads or blondes, but by puberty, we usually become something else. The really sad thing about most women facing "the turn" is that it starts their deceitful "dye on the hair"-- phase.

Yeah, hate to break it to them, but once it changes, you're no longer a "natural blonde," PERIOD. You are whatever your top and lower half has become naturally.

Own whatever you end up with/ get. Don't lie or dye. In the long run, that's a bigger turn off!

That's because Carly isn't from Hollywood - she's from my town and there are LOTS of true blonds that live here.

I do find temps over 90 F, esp with high humidity, to be very oppresive. But then, lots of other people complain about these conditions, as well. Especially here in the northeast, when summer temps seem to hit suddenly from the 50s-60s F, and there's little time with 'intermediate' temps.

So...other than the week of the 4th of July I'm OK. I don't think there are "Scandinavian genes". I have a definite preference for lower heat and humidity in high summer. I can get cold in winter, also, but as I enjoy being outdoors most of the time, I seem to adapt better to that. I don't need to freeze other people out!

Not me, I love the heat. I'm usually always cold, due to anemia.

I'm in no regard Scandinavian, either. My heritage is solidly German, UK and Irish.
