I was born with black hair and my eyes have always been dark brown. As I've gotten older, my hair has lightened to kind of a caramel brown but I don't know whether or not it has anything to do with phe levels… I wasn't getting in all my formula most of last year, but my hair kept its pattern of being darker in the winter and its lightest (some of it blond) in the summer… from sun exposure? Go figure.
Actually, I don't believe I've met more than two people who have blond hair and blue eyes out of about the twentyish PKU folks I know.
