President Barack Obama has admitted that he does not dye his hair, unlike other world leaders.
Barack Obama, 54, was responding to a Cambodian student who asked him for wise advice.
The president participated in a town hall meeting with Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) attendees at Taylor’s University in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia November 20, 2015, before attending the ASEAN summit meeting.
The color of a president’s hair has been controversial at times, with some leaders keeping secret the fact that they dyed their hair.
Barack Obama told the student: “The first thing I want from young people is to stop calling me old.
“I don’t dye my hair and a lot of world leaders do.
“I won’t say who. But their barbers know, their hairdressers.”
President Ronald Reagan never admitted to dying his jet-black hair, and his barber never spilled the beans, either.
Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder once sued a news agency for claiming that he hued his hair.
