This is a picture of child with blonde in her hair. Now, the Cambodians like fair skin and light hair. So when I first saw a Cambodian baby with blonde streaks in its hair, I was alarmed. Would they really highlight their kids hair so young? No… The hair is lighter because the child was malnourished in the womb. A large percentage of the children here have blonde streaks in their hair because even pregnant women can’t afford any food except for plain rice.
