Natural Dark Skinned Blonds



Scientist have recently discovered that a single mutation in DNA is responsible for almost half of the variations in Solomon Islanders hair color....their naturally blond hair that is.   Apparently, these dark skinned blond beauties have their own genes that have developed and mutated over the years, and are not a result of European explorers as one would assume.  



After taking samples of both Europeans  and Solomon Islanders, they have found that the mutation found in the genes of the Islanders does not appear at all in the European samples.

They speculate that it could be a result of sun exposure or heavy fish consumption,  but in any case, blond hair has evolved not once, but twice.




The Solomon Islanders have some of the darkest skin seen outside of Africa and the highest occurrences of blond hair outside of Europe.  In fact, the population of blond haired people on Solomon Island is comparable to the percentage of blond haired people in Europe -- about 10% of the population.

This discovery is unexpected and phenomenal.  It just goes to show that we truly come in all shapes and colors.  

What are your thoughts?

Uniquely Beautiful. I also find that some African with dark skin have Red Hair (as I did growing up). I like the red-headed blacks too.

My hair is naturally golden brown and golden around my hair line during the summer months.
I die my hair jet black for more than one reason, but now I am curious to see my natural hair colour and how light it actually will naturally ger.

This is pretty amazing I like most would automatically assume that it was from interaction with Europeans. When you see things like this it really makes you sit back and rethink your whole idea of how we all came to be and maybe even try to see or question Gods plan. The first thing that went through my head is could this same gene or rather similar gene or process be how Europeans came to be after they left Africa?
