It's the hair, isn't it?

Everyone has read passages that are intended to give you a breakdown of your personality. The analysis is given using your eye or hair color, birth year, astrological sign among other things.

I wanted to have a little fun, since I get so many comments about my hair, I decided to check out the history and varied perceptions of Red-Heads. Tell me what you think, do your physical characteristics help portray your personality?

The color red is, by itself very bold and deep. Words that are commonly associated with the color is hot, love and sexy. The perception of someone that is born with red hair is feisty, opinionated and seductive or in some incidents the complete opposite; homely, pale and quiet. There is a very popular stereo type that red-heads are either drop dead gorgeous or completely unattractive.

With only 2-5% of the United States population having natural red hair, red-heads tend to stand out in a crowd, and perhaps that is why so many with this rarity tend to protrude confidence, amongst other things. The country that has the most number of natural red heads is Scotland with 13% and then Ireland with 10%.

If you ask a hair stylist about red heads, they will probably say that the majority have a lot of it. Red heads tend possess thick hair, which is not a bad thing. The average number of actual strands which make up a head of hair is 100,000. Blondes have 120,000 and Red Heads top the list with 900,000 stands of hair on their heads. That is an abundance of hair in comparison. Unlike other natural hair colors, redheads do not go gray. Their hair turns a bit sandy and then white, but they do not go gray.

Being born a redhead was not always a positive attribute. During Mid-Evil times, many of redheads were burned alive for being witches-simply for having red hair.

It is said that it wasn’t until the era of Queen Elizabeth I, that red hair was actually considered a unique desirable characteristic.

"Red hair is the first visible human trait, or phenotype, that is linked to anesthetic requirement," says anesthesiologist Edwin Liem

Ten red-haired women between 19 and 40 years of age and ten having dark hair were given a commonly-used anesthetic in the study. After each dose of the anesthetic, the women were given a standard electric shock.

The process was repeated until the women felt no pain. Their reflexes were also monitored to assess the effectiveness of the painkiller. The researchers found that red heads required 20 per cent more aesthetic to dull pain.

Why is this? It is because, in people with red hair, the cells that produce skin and hair pigment have a dysfunctional melanocortin 1 receptor, which requires more anesthetic.


As for me- I have Irish and Scottish blood running through my body. I have two brothers and two sisters, and I am the only redhead in my family for three generations. My astrological sign happens to be Scorpio. Which goes right along with the characteristics associated with redheads. I am a crazy- intuitive- emotionally spun girl...and I refuse to apologize at all for any of it.

Here are some quotes and jokes about redheads for everyone;

How do you get a redheads mood to change?

Wait 10minutes

Why are there not more redhead jokes?

Someone was stupid and told a redhead.

Man you ain't lived until you had your tires rotated by a redheaded woman -Bruce Springstein

Gentleman may prefer Blondes, but it takes a real man to handle a redhead

What is the difference between a redhead and a computer?

Very interesting, and now I know why it always takes more Novocaine for me. I always wondered about that one. I am part Scottish, some red in my hair, but mostly my beard. I love redheaded women. Good job on your research and the jokes are great. Thanks, CC

ralwus,

thanks for the comment-and for reading the hub. i was told a few years ago before i had my son, that redheads tend to bleed more as well-but i wasn't able to confirm it (still looking) so I didn't include it. But it is still an interesting tid-bit.

hc porter

just read your 2nd message... yeah ive been around here and there. sorry i didn't respond. I was juggling a 29 month old-19 month old, research for another hub, answering questions from a column i write, and playing in the forums while making dinner. Usually do make an attempt to respond quickly-but dont always get a chance until after the kids are in bed. I enjoy reading the comments hubers make, so i try not to rush through with thoughtless lame responses. Please be patient with me (give me at least a day before you become annoyed with my delinquent responses)

I think that it is a rule that if you are a redhead as a child-you will be picked on. I remember trying to dye my hair black at 13, because i was called Carrot Top-Red Head- or Fire Girl... I am glad that you liked it, thanks for your comment.

aguasilver- THANKS FOR READING Both this one and the Beatles one too. Watch out for those redhead girls-they can sting!

No offense cutie -- but you're a lot cuter when you are NOT annoyed. Then again, i guess if i pissed you off if would be fair punishment that you give me a not-totally-cute look, huh? I guess maybe that's your Mad Mommy look, huh?


Citrus000 6 years ago

Whatever wsp, H.C. your super cute when your annoyed. However after reading this hub, I might be a bit scared if you someone had really pissed you off. You better watch out wsp!

Nope-that's not the Mad Mommy look, that's the I just spent a week in the hospital, three weeks after having a baby, when someone tells me, 'Once your done with the laundry, the dishes are starting to pile up-you think you could get to them, you haven't been home for a week' look... that was followed by the question, 'so when will you have the rest of that weight off'? (which was the shut the hell up laugh).

lol- it wasn't meant to be a cute look-I was sick as hell :)

i know i look horrible in those pics (was just showing the icky side of me, lol)

H.C Porter profile image

H.C Porter 6 years ago from Lone Star State Author

LOL- thanks. Don’t you know, I am also a Scorpio? which means, I remain cool and collected the majority of the time (at least on the outside)-takes a lot to rough up the dandruff-life’s way too short to get your panties in a wad-specially when you know you will eventually have to fish em out.

I read what you wrote-and you wrote truth (I should have gotten responses out quicker than 15hrs), the thing to do was say I am sorry-explain myself-ask for forgiveness and get on with it... :D

Besides, didn’t want to get all frisky and lose a fan/follower (you’re a pretty cool guy)

As for being a great mommy? I try, some days I want to go hide from them (the terrible two's are hell). But 95% of the time, I am just having fun-learning who they are and figuring out their interests and personalities.

Thanks Again :)

This was fun! I know some people who are redheads, and some of them do have the temperament of the eponimous redheads history mentions, but then I was thinking of some Irish and Scottish people I know, and this made me smile. Especially these jokes, which made me laugh. I'd lke to show this to some of my pals, see what they think. The redheads get a lot of slagging for being red-haired. It's discrimination I tell ya! It's interesting that their hair doesn't go grey either. The things you learn on Hub Pages! : )

As far as a woman's hair is concerned, they can be any colors as long as they are natural. I don't like hair that are too curvy or stiff like a brush.

I haven't dated a red head so far, so I can't comment on that.

Nobody has mentioned the redhead from Desperate Housewives (well, ok I admit it.... I didn't check)..... she was the first redhead I fell in love with.... even if it was only an airbrushed photo, and for 5 minutes.

Once you go red it goes straight to your head...

I can't decide which is the most outstanding quality of the red heads I have known, befriended and dated over the years (five women as friends and lovers, and good friends with three men to be exact)...their quick yet dangerous witty sense of humor, their natural brains disguised as common sense, or they're naturally over the top skills sexually. Plus they can dress in colors and clothing that none of the other hair colors can. I alas am brown eyed brown haired so I am but a mere mortal to your red haired all powerful goddessness...LOL

Great hub, will be passing it on to my several fair ginger and other shades of red haired friends.

coolhairmike 5 years ago

For all the redheads out there, natural or color-treated, an excellent way to keep your hair color looking vibrant is to use a good color depositing shampoo/conditioner. Loreal used to have a great line called Artec, but is has been discontinued. http://www.haircareusa.com lists come great alternatives, including Claypac Red Shampoo and Condition by Altobella, and All-Nutrient Color Shampoo and Tressa Watercolors Shampoo. Alternate with your favorite regular (or color-protecting shampoo for color-treated hair) for great, vibrant, long-lasting reds!

Alexa Teotihuacan 5 years ago

I met a red head Irish-Native American that claimed to have Cheyenne etnich background. She is a perfect bitch, manipulative, horney, and capable to involve either males or females in her erotic game. She got divorced when her 28 years old older son was 9 and her younger 22 was 3. She never resolve the problem to be rejected by her husband who used her all the way (i.e. financially, sexually, et cetera). Red-heads are in many cases false people, not trustable, and they like show off and manipulate others. Is it something in their genes? Perhaps!

Alexa Teotihuacan-

Thank you for your perspective-although I do not agree. False is a very negative statement-perhaps true in some cases, but it can also be said for any hair color; blonde, brunet, black, whatever... Again thanks for reading and for commenting, I am sorry for your dislike of red hair, and for your experience, it is a shame.

I'm not sure if you're a Doctor Who fan but, the whole fandom is very fond of red-heads because the show really shines a good light on them!

the Doctor has had two different amazing red-headed companions and every time he 'regenerates' he's always disappointed to find out he's not ginger (haha)

you should watch it it's really good.
