Redhead’s… to be a thing of the past?

I heard something very interesting the other day, that as time goes on the natural redhead hair colour will be a thing of the past… to hear that redheads might actually loose their gene, that is just sad! I’ve always joked that I am one of a kind, now just think of how true that is πŸ˜‰

On a funny note… I found this online when doing just a general search for “redheads”

“Gentleman may prefer Blondes, but it takes a real man to handle a Redhead!”

From the MarieClaire.com website

Redheads are “fiery lasses.” Redheads are bubbly blondes with a “I’ll kick your butt if you step out of line” brunette streak. Like brunettes, redheads can be intimidating, but in a different way β€” more like a brazen confidence.Β 

AND

The classic redhead women are strikingly beautiful: Rita Hayworth, Katharine Hepburn. For me, the redhead personality consists of polar opposites: She’s either the beer-swilling barmaid, giving every guy a run for his money…or the classic confident beauty, understated and graceful, possessing all the answers before everyone else.

Being a redhead comes with many stereotypical statements such as weΒ are evil, angry all the time, mean,Β  promiscuous, wild, passionate, and talks like a trucker.

Real life being a redhead we do have a unique personality, just like each and everyone one of us, what is different is we are among the minority of hair colour. I had always hoped that if I had a daughter, she too would be blessed with my red hair gene. Although she does not have red hair like her mama she does have the tinge and the personality to go along with it!

As Ive grown up Ive begun to appreciate my red hair, accept the compliments when people ask me if this is my “real” hair colour – why yes of course it is πŸ˜‰ I am 100% a natural woman, including my red hair! I am passionate – especially for my family. I have a heart of gold, until I am crossed. That is when the firey red hair personality ignites. Ironically this is one thing my husband said first attracted him to me. Someone who is shy and reserved at times, certainly can and isnt afraid of having a great time or when I need to speak my mind! πŸ˜› I don’t think I will ever loose my redhead nick names, “big red” and red”, ironically one of my past co-workers called the office today and what did he call me… red lol!

Yes we red heads are truly one of a kind πŸ˜‰

Fortunately this is merely a myth! I didn’t get my red headed daughter however perhaps one day (a long time from now) we will be blessed with grandchildren who will carry on my golden locks!
