I Am a Red Head

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 218 People

    Hey, Red-Head!

    I'm often called red-head by my classmates and friends, and I do like it! When I was a toddler, my hair was BRIGHT red. My mom told me stories when ladies would ask her what color she dyed my hair. Now, my hair's darker, so it's red with a brown tint. I do hope it gets a little...

    Not That Much

    I'm naturally closer to a golden very light brown, that gives a sort of light brownish straw when the hair gets longer. But as I have a very fair skin, with freckles, I like to dye my hair more red (a real strawberry), and it looks perfectly naturel.

    Red!

    When I was a young child I had red hair. As I grew older the red began to change into a redish brown. The rest of my siblings are dark brown hair. My older sister dyes her hair blonde, my little brother dyes his hair dark black, and my older brother does nothing. He is a good...

    ...And I have a temper to match it :p My hair

    looks less red these days and more brown, which would have given me joy to know as a kid but now it kinda disappoints me because I've just gotten to love red hair.

    Tired of My Hair Color

    I'm tired of my red hair and fair skin but if I try to color my hair, it's a disaster. No other color suits me at all. Any ideas?

    Love It

    I'm not a natural redhead, I'm naturally light brown/ auburn, but I like to have my hair more red. So I dye it to red. That way I can be proud of my nickname ;)

    There are so many pros

    and cons of being a Redhead, like the obvious bullying and our less well known sensitivity to thermal pain and being in need of more anaesthetic, but also the rarity and beauty of it. I am a Redhead and I've always been proud of it despite the tourments, but my recent group of...

    So You Know...

    That is, in theory of course. My hair is very much ginger and I do stick by that. Others seem to think differently. I had one guy tell me I had dark brown and someone else reckoned I was blonde. I had to set both of them straight. I'm deffinately a redhead, not brown or blonde.
