Why does hair sometimes get lighter or darker with age?
AS your body ages, biological changes, both physical and chemical, can cause pigmentation changes. (Gain\Lose freckles, moles, liver spots, etc.) Those same changes can cause hair to lose pigmentation and alter pigmentation. An example is someone with light red hair when born and grows progressively darker as they reach adult hood. An additional example would be graying hair in elderly people. The changes are influenced by environment (diet, excercise, living location, climate) and genetics.

The main reason is that skin is alive and hair is dead. Melanin is the dark brown pigment produced by your skin to absorb some of the UV radiation from the sun. The melani…n in your hair is destroyed by sun and your hair will not produce more melanin to respond to that since it is dead. Your hair will stay lighter until new hair grows in. Skin on the other hand is alive and when the melanin is destroyed by the sun, the skin responds by producing more melanin and thus your Skin get darker.
i think that you are just more likely to see the oil in darker hair than in lighter hair because the oil stands out more in dark hair.
The color of black or dark brown is absorbed by the sun because it's a dark color. Light colors like blonde can reflect the sun's rays off of their head, causing it to be cool…er.
Darker hair contains more melanin, a pigment not an oil.
darker because green is quite a light colour
Coloring your hair a darker color will really make your blue eyes POP! Go for a level 5, (since I have a feeling you're naturally a level 6). I'm sure a level 5 will flatter y…our features nicely.
Temporary hair color lasts from shampoo to shampoo....in other words, you shampoo your hair first, apply the color, and then the next time you shampoo your hair, the color wil…l immediately wash out. This will occur with any color- whether dark or light. If you'd prefer a longer lasting color, which is fairly non-damaging, use a semi-permanent color.
Skin gets darker when exposed to sunlight because ultraviolet rays from the sun stimulate the production of melanin. Melanin is a pigment that protects the skin from damage. … It is produced by melanocyte cells within the skin. Hair also contains melanin, made by melanocytes beneath the scalp. However, the hair above the surface of your skin is already dead; its melanin cannot be renewed by the melanocytes. The melanin within each strand of hair breaks down with exposure to sunlight. The result? Your hair grows lighter in color.
Its not accatually unhealthy but probably darker EDIT: it actually does not matter what color you dye your hair. It's all the same. But the color that does damage your hair …is if you bleached it.
It depends on how the light hits the object. This may be applied to the division between the rings of Saturn, called the Cassini Division. It should carefully noted shadows ar…e dependent on secondary or reflected light= some light is necessary to produce them. a story about a relative of mine who worked ( in a civilian capacity) at the Armory and was coming home late at night- and was (Guided) by the shadow of maybe the Stuyvesant statue ( nowhere:s near the armory) tends to evaporate on first glance- or prima facie!
Yes, of course. It is unique that way.
I have dark hair but know hair pretty well. For example, my friend had blond hair and died it to brown. When you dye hair, the old color goes down to the end of your hair, so …it will be lighter on the bottom. If you wash your hair the color will get lighter. If you dye your hair darker when it's light, your hair will be different shades and the dye usually doesn't stay in long. Also dying your hair that aggressively isn't healthy for your hair.
can but after 5-10 minutes.
Because, of the chemicals in different types of food. This also lets I think spinach... smell strange.
