i heard the same thing……that the higher your phe level the lighter a person's hair is…….when i was on diet i could just tell if my diet was going well if my hair was dark or light…..obviously it's not that much of a dramatic change….

everyone in my family has black hair and dark brown eyes, i however have light brown hair (now that im off-diet so i have higher phe levels i guess my hair is constantly light brown now) and my eyes are probably the lightest brown from my siblings……..don't know whether the theory is true, but i'm not complaining! :)
