Question about my daughters hair

DD is just over a year old and im sort of confused about her hair color lol, I have brown hair and DH has blonde hair but DH had like white hair when he was her age, thats how blonde it was until he was about 6 or 7, its still blonde but now its a darker blonde and I even had slightly blonde hair when I was a baby up until I was about 3 then it started to turn brown..DD was born with VERY dark hair, then over the course of this year its become lighter and lighter and now its between a very light brown and a dirty blonde, she has tons of golden strands all throughout her what will happen with her hair color? could it keep getting lighter..if not how come she doesnt have blonde hair like DH and I did at that age??

  • i don't know a lot about that but i do know what you're talkin about is not unusual. Maybe gpap or gma on either side had really dark hair?

  • The really blond headed children are called towheads. I had two towheads and one that was born with dark hair that faded out and turned blond. Today they all have the "dirty" blond hair. It gets lighter during summer and fades out during the winter. Their father's hair is like that. I have dark auburn hair. (ok it's probably all grey under the color I have on it now but when I was younger it was auburn!)
