I?m the opposite of you. I?m a blonde whose hair has darkened over
time and I wish it would have stayed the light blonde I was as a teen.
Anyway, the answer is just that your hair might not turn. Many
blonde-haired people do have their hair darken, but not all. However,
this is a process that can occur over your whole lifetime, so who
knows, it may happen 20 years down the road.
Hair darkens because our genes get essentially turned on and off by
proteins called transcription factors (TF).
I found a website explaining this with the idea of a recipe.
?TFs are called activators when they turn genes on. Activators work
like a bookmark that leads us to the recipe we want. Activators turn
genes on by leading the cellular gene-reading machinery to the recipe.
TFs are called repressors when they work to shut off a gene.
Repressors are something like a paperclip that sticks the pages of the
recipe together so that we skip right over them in our cookbook.
Repressors turn genes off by making the recipe invisible to the
cellular gene-reading machinery.?
?Hair and eye color can darken over time because the respective genes
are turned on. This can happen either by an activator being turned on
or a repressor being turned off.?
Looks like you just haven?t had the right recipe yet in your genes to
darken your hair. Give it some time or just be happy with the blonde
you have now. There?s always hair dye as well. Ask your stylist to put
in some ?low lights? This will give you a sandy blonde effect and
lessen the shock of the bright blonde.
