Wine and cigarettes age and yellow the teeth, which supports that party image that “blondes have more fun” — but this is a myth.
Some studies (funded by Clairol of course!) indicate that a women is more confident after she lightens her hair.
I’d venture to say, unofficially from my studies, that blondes and brunettes alike can achieve that same level of confidence by whitening their teeth, not their hair, because the lighter your hair, the yellower your teeth will look in contrast!
So before you reach for the peroxide, get the teeth whitening gel out and whiten your teeth.
When you meet someone new, they will almost always notice a big, healthy smile before they notice your hair. Teeth whitening is also safer and longer lasting (no roots to touch up).
Blondes may have to whiten a bit longer due to the contrast issue I mention above, but in the mean time, maybe they are having more fun!
