This is in collaboration with my fellow Ginger, Gabbing Ginger. Head over there for more positive vibes and see her journey of embracing being a red-head!
I’ve heard all of the names over and over. I was ridiculed for being different. By having red-hair.
I’m not saying I had it as bad as others but still I was bullied for my hair color. Growing up I resented having red-hair. I even dyed it a few times which my mom did not like. But here I am at 24 finally embracing my red-hair and not giving an “F.”
That is why this blog is called Gingy Love I have accepted my difference and used it to benefit me. I not love my red hair and take very good care of it. Now I know why I was out casted-because I was different. Different isn’t scary, it’s beautiful. My hair color doesn’t cast me out but helps me stand out. If you have red-hair that embrace it and rock that shizzz. Be the life of the party, stand your ground but above else don’t hide who you are just because of your hair. Don’t let it hold you back let it set you apart. Let your hair and personality shine!
Since it is National Red-head Day I wanted to share some facts about us
Lucky redhead women have more sex
That’s according to a study by a German sex researcher who found that women with red hair had sex more often. A similar English study found that redhead gals had sex an average of three times a week, while our blonde and brunette counterparts have it twice a week. Shame the fellas weren’t questioned, too.
Red hair is thicker than other colors (Don’t I know it!)
Each strand of red hair is generally thicker than other shades which compensates for the fact that redheads have less hair. Apparently they have – on average – 90,000 strands while blondes have 110,000, and brunettes have 140,000.
Blue eyed redheads are super rare (heyo I’m a double whammy!)
Blue eyes and red hair forms the rarest combo on earth. Most (natural) redheads will have brown eyes, followed by hazel or green shades.
Redheads can change temperature quicker
This is because – according to research – redheads are more sensitive to hot and cold pain. Nothing to do with their mythical fiery temperament!
Redheads don’t go grey (Take that haters)
Red hair will never turn grey; it simply fades to white via rose gold when the time comes.
So if you see a red-head today nod at them or tell them their hair is pretty cool. Happy National Red-head day!
