Natural Redheads Vs Dyed Redheads

When I first got online years ago, I was on aol and had no idea about chatrooms. Finding one that was for REDHEADS, I was thrilled (sad how the rare among us find such joy in simple things:) and I tried my hand at entering.  In a very short period of time, I realized that these were not my kin, my ruby headed sisters, my elementary school fellow tortured souls. What was going on? Then it dawned on me and I typed the question "Are the people here dyed redheads or natural redheads?" Well OMG that set off a storm like I was NOT expecting. There were a few "natural here" but the dyed redheads went a little nuts with their "whats the difference???" hoots and hollars. Let me TRY to tell you the difference:

 

1. You will VERY RARELY meet a natural redhead that is cocky, petty or mean

2. You will VERY RARELY meet a natural redhead that does not have a confidence problem, no matter how deep down we learn to bury it

3. You will VERY RARELY meet a natural redhead that is openly sexually promiscuous or that dresses or acts as if their sexuality is what defines them

4. Natural redheads MOST OFTEN have more of a shy tendency about them

PLEASE note that I know this is not true of all natural redheads but what I have noticed about a large number of DYED redhedas is that they can be mean, petty, cruel, promiscuous and I personally have been the butt of their cruelty for the simple fact that they are jealous that they cannot get out of a bottle what we were born with naturally.

Sorry ladies, it takes many years of being the outcast to become this special :o)~

(PS I'm wicked jealous of my friends who can dye their hair to match their mood. How fun is that? Its the people that dye their hair red to be something they PERCEIVE redheads to be and end up misrepresenting us to a gross degree. Smart men know the difference :)

Replace the red hair in each sentence and substitute with race. Would this article still be acceptable? No! This is simple minded dribble from a low IQ child. My grandmother and my aunt have red hair and they are both some of the worst people I know . My sister is a red head and she is amazing. Hair color is not an indication of character. Sorry but you will need to find some other way to judge people and make yourself feel better. You can't bring yourself up by bringing others down.

How about we all agree that your hair color does not and should not define you as a person...we are all unique, different people.

"You will VERY RARELY meet a natural redhead that is cocky, petty or mean"

Could not be further from the truth, at least in my experience. Almost every real ginger girl I know (~10) is/was backstabbing, INCREDIBLY vain, lying, bossy, and downright cruel. One in particular was a very convincing fake friend who was OBSESSED with her hair color, centering conversations on it, demanding to know what I said just because I mentioned the word "red" in a conversation to another friend, (I said READ)... Sometimes she would insult me to my face about my "inferior" brown hair and other features, but usually it was so sneaky that I simply believed her in all her "sweet innocence" and became more depressed about my own looks. And no, she was not bullied as a kid: she was one of the most popular girls in our grade and had been since elementary school.

After knowing enough real redheads like this, I began to wonder if most ginger girls really are rotten thanks to their celebrity mindsets, (and all were naturally red). Then a few years ago, I heard reports of real discrimination against redheads in the U.K. So is it a U.K. vs. U.S. thing? Male vs. female? (redheaded women in the media are "sexy sirens," while redheaded men are "undesirable" as "evidenced" by the report of U.S. ***** banks no longer accepting donations from ginger men.)

My heart goes out to all redheads everywhere who endure real bullying, (as I did at the hands of a redhead), but I just wanted to say that it's not always the fakes who are giving redheads a bad name.

Btw, I have never met a ginger with a quick, violent temper.

I agree with camperchick53 and fjdk; it's not what color your hair is, it's your personality. I'm a natural red-blond, and was called strawberry, gingersnap and Irish Red for years. Then I dyed my hair black and it stopped. I realized my hair color isn't what defied me as a person a few years ago, so I have gone back to my more natural roots, just with the help of a bottle. So what am I? Naturally I'm a redhead, but now I am more a dyed red...oh that's right; I'm ME. :]

"Smart men know the difference".<br />
What, is being redhead like being a different breed of dog? All women are different, girl. The hair isn't the important part.

This is utterly stupid. I'm so sorry, and I agree that natural redheads have it rough because of all of these ridiculous "ginger" stereotypes around, but it's really hateful to start judging other women who dye their hair, because you don't know the reasoning and you DON'T know that they're all jealous. Furthermore, I lived with two natural redheads, and one of them was so concerned with the fact that she was actual natural redhead, that she spent a lot of time commenting on the redheads on television, often informing me when she saw someone who wasn't a natural redhead, sneering at their awful dye jobs. It's utterly self-conscious and ridiculous to worry about what another woman's hair looks like. Furthermore it's ridiculous to cause problems where problems don't exist. We need to stop judging each other as women, it's stupid and it gives men all of the power because we're so consumed with our ******* hair. No one cares if you're a natural redhead, a brunette, a blonde, or you dye it! Men certainly don't care! What makes you special is what's on the inside, not what's on top of your head.

LOL. Well, I guess this explains why I feel like a "natural" redhead, and "fill this hair color" so well.<br />
I can tick all the points you've mentioned about natural redheads, and I am a natural brunette, but people have told me as soon as I dyed my hair that this color looks great on me. It's not the most natural of colors, but I don't go for blue-ish shades of red...I like copper and auburn hair. Still, I think it's pretty obvious I'm not a natural redhead.<br />
<br />
But, anyway, back to why I act like a natural redhead...was teased by other kids my age ever since kindergarten, mostly for being overweight, but other things, as well, so, yes, definitely a strong shy side, major confidence issues, not sexually overt at all, in fact, mostly repressed about it.<br />
<br />
Am definitely never petty or mean..unless I'm being provoked on a consistent basis. <br />
<br />
Can't say I'm jealous of natural redheads, or natural anything, since we live in a world where we can change just about anything about our appearance..hair color being the easiest thing to change, probably. Next comes eye color, nose size, glasses can be traded for contacts etc.<br />
<br />
Anyway, I feel like this color really suits my personality, and I don't feel like I'm "faking it" at all...whatever "it" is. lol<br />
I'm sure that natural redheads who feel they would look better with black hair would like the same freedom to change hair color, so I don't judge, and expect not to be judged, myself.

From one natural redhead to another.... I agree with you....... "As I take my hands and run my fingers through my hair." lol.... I love being a redhead and I will never trade it for any color. Its been a blast :) Receiving attention because I'm a redhead is true. My logo used to be a pic of me and it attracted the wrong crowd. So I have gone neutral so people will want to be my friend because of what I have written, not because of the color of my hair..... :)

it's true that dyed redheads are jealous of natural redheads but that doesn't mean ALL of them get all bitchy and mean with you(i've met dyed redheads that are really good people,and i've also met some stupid dyed redheads, but then, i also know some stupid bleached blondes and natural blondes, and stupid brunettes, i don't really think your color hair affects that much your personality) i mean, yes, maybe it annoys them that we've been born that way, but i don't think all of them behave like *****, some of them just like that color and feel better with their hair that way rather than with their natural one.

Every redhead I have ever met has been a down to earth person with a real sense of who they were. You could not help but to fall in love with someone with thsoe qualities. Not to mention that redheads are the hottest women on earth. Truly a deadly combe and a difficult spell for a man to break.

Ah girl, if you only knew how popular natural redheads are with men, and how utterly jealous women are of the attention we give you...<br />
I don't know where you live but here in Australia there's a big movement among women to dye their hair red, and it makes me laugh out loud to see them strutting proudly along the street with truly awful bottle jobs! It's the one color you absolutely cannot fake well, and l am so very grateful for that.<br />
If women hate you with a feral passion it is only because us men love you with the same intensity. :)<br />
I will get around to posting my sad little story when l can, but basically l'm torn between the fact that my partner is truly a wonderful woman, yet doesn't share any of my carnal interests, :(

Thank you for saying so. I always suspected that but someone being jealous of a natural redhead is somewhat beyond our comprehension :)<br />
<br />
Since this is anonymous, can I ask why you are a supressed dom? I ask because Im pretty sure Im a supressed sub and have been for my whole life so I was just curious. You dont have to answer if its too personal.<br />
<br />
Thx again for your comment!

Lol well you are promiscuous despite your post saying you are not. You jumped right on the **** didn't you? I think you are the one who is jealous that other women look better with red hair than you do with it naturally. Lol

They are bitchy only because they recognize the threat you pose. They know they would never be able to compete should you decide to take their man, and you know what? They're right.<br />
Be proud. Take the bitchiness as a compliment. They wish they were you.
