Neymar's hair gets more golden with each goal [Photo Evidence]

Brazil star forward Neymar Jr. will be wearing some nifty gold boots from Nike — which were inspired by his childhood — for the remainder of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

However, that isn’t the only thing that isn’t the only thing that will be more golden than ever as Brazil takes the pitch for the elimination round of the tournament.

Neymar, who currently leads the tournament with four goals, appears to get some extra power every time he puts the ball in the back of the net.

There is no scientific proof to back it up, but a quick observation tells you that the secret to Brazil’s golden boy is his hair.

That is where he harnesses his power.

When Neymar started off the World Cup, he had some nice, chestnut brown locks.

Against Mexico, his tips looked a bit different with a golden frost.

Now, Neymar’s map is getting a bit out of control with the golden touch overwhelming his stylized mullet.

Here is a look at the transition.

You can’t ask for more proof than that.

So, there you have it, folks.

Every time Neymar scores, another section of his hair turns to gold.

If Brazil continues to advance in this year’s tournament, he better work on growing some better facial hair or his body will be running out of real estate to capture that golden touch.
