Shower Made Blond Women Green-Haired

Some of the blondes who moved into a new district in Anderslöv, Sweden, suddenly discovered they had started off a new hair fashion when they saw that their hair had acquired a distinct greenish color!

Soon the new hue was tracked down to the water in their showers that was suspected of having an abnormally high level of copper.

The water was tested and found to be all right, but the color change was due to extra copper in the water. It emerged that hot water, passing through uncoated pipes, began to peel the copper layer and one day became practically a kind of a dye.

The percentage of the transformed blondes who want to keep their shower water that way hasn’t been revealed.
