Have you ever wondered why some people’s head hair and pubic hair do not match in color?

Aside from people who have colored their hair or people with naturally dark or black hair, your pubes are probably darker than what’s on your head. Why? Just as with skin, the color of hair is determined by the amount of melanin in the outer layer of your hair. Melanin is a pigment that is ubiquitous in nature and varies in concentration in the hair of different parts of the body. This is why pubic hair is sometimes a different color from hair elsewhere found on your body.

Black hair contains the highest concentraion of melanin while the absence of melanin as one ages causes your hair to appear whitish in color. So it is safe to say that blondes have more melanin present in their pubic hair as compared to that of their heads.

    I have found if you pluck you pubic hair it removes melanin from it. After plucking it all grew back white. If I want color in my pubes I have to color it myself.
