PKU is very common in people who have blonde hair and blue eyes.  Of course, there are people who have PKU that do not have blonde hair, blue eyes… And I have heard that the higher your PHE levels, your hair can become lighter.. but some people can just have natural blonde hair … I had much lighter hair a few years ago when I wasn't great with taking my formula.. recently, I have had several people commenting on how dark my hair has gotten… it could be since I'm getting older, but it is very possible that it is because I am consistent with drinking my formula… hope this helps :)
