I am a natural redhead and for the majority of my childhood I was an outkast. The other children picked on me by calling me carrot top. I would come home so sad and my father would say that redheaded women are the most beautiful women and if someone calls you that you should tell them carrots tops are not red they are green. Unfortunately that didn't really seem to help. I hated being a redhead so much because of what other people would say and to some degree I felt ugly because that is what they wanted me to believe. Eventually with aged I learned that it didn't matter. Now I love my redhair. People have all these saying about how redheads are hotheads and many other things. At first I thought they are crazy I am not any of those things but the more and more comfortable I grew with myself and my hair I learned I fit alot of the redhead fables. It is funny how you can ignore something that is so much a part of you when people try to make it seem bad when in all actually they are probably just a little jealous of something that makes you a little different. That makes you, you. No longer the shy carrot top that people used to think I was now I am a Proud Redhead!!
