    Not all white people have blonde hair. There are plenty of light-skinned people with natural black, brown, auburn or red hair.

    Hereditary from their ancestors...........just like other races and hair color.

    Lack of melanin. Colored folks have darker air because they have a lot more melanin.

    Hi Jake,

    That’s very much not true.

    Lighter hair is merely a human mutation. It’s not only seen in Europeans. It’s seen, well, in humans. It’s merely more common in those of European descent, likely due to sexual selection, whereas in other places it may not have been seen as ideal. For example, in Tanzania, as well as other parts of Africa, those with albinism are hunted/killed. Had they been able to procreate there could be many, many more within a few generations.

    you can see Africans here, how they have golden-bronze skin with golden hair, Many people assume anyone who isn’t white that has blonde or light-colored eyes has European genes but that really isn’t the case.

    Well you may require an answer from the creator there. It might be related to the answers to such questions as why is the sun yellow and the sky blue...In the grand scheme of things it makes nice variety black, brown yellow (I am talking about the natural colors not the colors used for decoration) I might have a better answer with skin colors as it seems to be an adaptation to the living conditions...

    Well, if you have natural blonde hair, it's most likely from a "white" person in your family, you can always be a different race and have blonde hair, but you would most likely have blonde hair from a foreign relative. This probably doesn't make sense, but I tried.

    I have blonde hair it's the melanin and darker people have more and lighter people have less and it's genetics.
