    I'm south asian (indian), and my hair looks REALLY brown in sunlight. I read somewhere, that if it's truly black, then it should look black always, no matter the light. I'm so confused, because I've grown up, thinking my hair is black.

    any thoughts?

    I'd say really dark brown but it means if you wanted your hair to be black you could suit it if you dyed it.
    I have the same problem, everyone seems to think my hair is black but it's actually just extremely dark brown.

    I think people can't be born with actual black hair just a really dark dark brown so you're hair is brown.

    They can definitely be born with actual black hair.

    Sometimes in sun light actual black hair almost gives a purplish black hue in direct light. But your hair definitely sounds brown.

    It's probably dark brown (mine is too), but we'll need a picture to see.

    Hi,

    I'm south Asian too and I always thought my hair was black and I know quite a few people with black hair. Then one day I wasn't so sure any more so I held it up against something I knew was black and it turns out that my hair is really dark brown.

    Your hair looks dark brown to me. Even without direct light on it, it definitely is brown.
