    Hell Yea, I Am...

    I am a natural red-head, and no matter what you have heard before, red heads do it best.  We really do.... and we are VERY freaky... well, at least I am.

    I'm A Natural Redhead And Naturally Curly.

    I love my hair and wouldn't change it for anything. I'm a natural redhead, well my hair's auburn and it's also naturally curly so at school got called a mix of names from either it being curly or being auburn. My brothers are also redheads but theirs is bright ginger and straight...

    I love being a redhead,

    specially because I have freckles and green eyes. I guess the combination of green eyes, freckles and red hair looks good.

    In my lifetime, out of all the women

    that I have dated. There was only one redhead and she was the most loyal, trusting, honest, faithful, loving, caring person that I ever met in my life. Basically, everything a man could ever want in a wife. Today would have been our 13 year anniversary but, sadly, she past away...

    I am all things red-crazy,

    wild, great in the sack. We do have some weird pain threshold that doctors and anesthesiologist get nervous about. And yes, the carpet matches the drapes. But I doubt you will ever find out.

    When I was a child, I was teased

    and sometimes bullied for being a redhead. Other kids would actually avoid me. Paired with my shyness, I didn't make many friends. Getting compliments for my hair color was only a thing that came from the senior generation. Nowadays, a lot more younger people compliment my hair...

    Despite the teasing and name-calling

    that comes with it, I'm glad to be a redhead. I enjoy being different and I think being singled out helped develop my wit. It does have its drawbacks (easily sunburned, hard to be inconspicuous) but I've never wished for a different color.

    I get sunburnt year-round,

    but even more often than that, the sun just makes freckles appear all over! I don't actually have freckles on my face at all, since I've grown up (mostly on my shoulders), but the sun really brings them about. Anyone other reds have that problem? I also despise to see a dye-job...

    I have such a love-hate relationship with it.

    Strangers always compliment my hair colour, but when I'm sitting on the bus, people will creep up and touch it. I love being outside, but no amount of sunscreen can save me from the sun. When I cared, I always turned a few heads, especially guys. At least half of them...

    Growing up in the era I did,

    bullying as we know it today was common. Back then physical violence was called bullying though. Name calling was something we had to learn to deal with.

    Not sure if it's a good

    or a bad thing but at least it's different. That's what people usually notice about me at first. And I've grown to like it as well :) there's no point in coloring my hair because nothing suits me so I guess I'm just sticking with this.

    a few years ago when my hair began showing more

    obvious streaks of gray, I began dying it. I decided that the upkeep was too much work and I'm just not the kind of woman that is vain enough to constantly go through so much trouble to look younger, besides all that dye is damaging to hair. I've decided that healthy gray hair...
