  • Hasn't happen to my children but something similar happen to me. I was a dirty blond then after I got pregnant it went dark brown in a matter of a month.

  • I don't believe hair can change color once it has grown. It can certainly grow in a different color, but not change what is there already. I think the boy dyed his hair overnight and mom didn't know.

  • I've never heard of that, usually a baby loses their hair and it may change color, or the roots start growing in a different color, but the hair that is already there.....I don't see how it could change color without dye.

  • very odd, as it was overnight and hair that is already grown out could not be effected by something he just ate or drank, it would only happen to the regrowth. I'm very curious to know the answer too. Perhaps he got into something he should not have . :(
