Asians Bleach Hair As Scientists Reveal Benefits To Blonde Hair

Last week’s publication of a new report in the American Journal of Medicine outlining some of the health benefits to having blonde hair, created a rush in some pockets of Asian communities to get their hair dyed blonde. The report outlines a study where individuals with blonde and darker hair were studied over a course of 20 years. Those with blonde hair were more likely to live longer, have a better outlook on life, and generally were more satisfied with their lives. Asian beauticians in major metropolitan areas in the U.S. noted an increase in Asian American clientele requesting that their hair be dyed blonde in the last week after the report came out.

More on the report after the jump.
