REDHEADS are becoming rarer and could be extinct in 100 years, according to genetic scientists.
*phew*

I thought you meant sooner... this is a relief...

ATTENTION ALL PROUD REDHEADS!!!

If we are to accept the article as fact, so what?

It's a natural occurrence due to intermingling of the modern world. If it, "red" did only originate in Northern Europe, it was specifically to aid the body in naturally producing Vitamin D. That being so due to the relative lack of sunlight.

Its not some sort of "racial" planned takeover of "redheads"! In recent National Geographic articles on Iran/Iraq/Afghanistan, due to the recent conflicts, I've noticed photo's of redheads with fair coloured eyes, that are native to that region and they're all Asian. So what are you trying to insinuate?

PS. I have NEVER seen an Asian with redhair. Redheads originate from Irish or Scotish decent. Maybe the pic was women with " God forbid" hair coloring? I know my redhair has been passed on and I am a 3 generation redhead and my neice has the trait as well. Guess all us redheads better get busy having " future redheads'. Count me out . I just hand the unfortunates redhead wanna be`s a clairol box.

When I was younger my sister used to kid me that I was the milkman's child because I have reddish/blond hair and the rest of my family has dark brown hair.The trait usually skips a generation unless both parents have the gene,my cousins have it as well.
I feel for the men that have the "carrot top" look,most women don't think that's sexy.
I had a woman tell me straight out that she doesn't date redheads,like we have some disease.

Redhead Fun Facts:
There are redheads all over Russia and the middle east,the Vikings got around and busy.
If you are born with brown hair and it turns red it's a sign of malnutrition.
The British,German(Prussian) and Russian royals had the gene because they intermarried for centuries.

Wonderful!! More business for us hairstylists!

The Vikings got around and busy, for sure. I have two aunts from southern Italy that are natural carrot tops, with freckles. VERY rare down there..

My daddy was a redhead - at any rate we'll be long gone in 100 yrs so it won't matter

There's always going to be women who dye their hair red

There are even some redheads among the Native American population in the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada. But you didn't hear that from me.

Low percentage of the population makes up red-heads. I imagine there will always be a few around though....fewer and fewer....

The fact that there's fewer of us just means we're special! So if you got one, you got lucky! The best stuff is always harder to come by lol

Designingwoman,

Well said, you are obviously a very astute lady.
Women should take advantage while they can.

Redheads will continue forever
Posted: 9/11/2007 9:00:18 AM
To quote the same article:
It takes only one red-haired parent to produce ginger-headed babies, but two redheads obviously create a much stronger possibility.
This means that red hair is a dominant gene, so if a redhead of either sex has kids with a blonde-haired or a dark-haired person, the kids will be more redhead than blonde-haired or dark-haired.

So there is no way that redheads can become extinct, unless no redhead ever has another child.

In fact, blondes have a recessive gene, so a blonde who has children with a non-blonde will produce mostly non-blonde children, so it's blonds who are facing extinction, not redheads.

This is another biased article, probably written by brunettes who are jealous that men prefer redheads, as they are more fiery and passionate in bed.

I stand corrected.
Blondes and redheads will continue to be around for many years to come. Great news for me!

Redheads will never disappear, thanks to Clairol. How many women are there percentage wise, who don't colour their hair on a regular basis. Who really cares if the colour is real.
