Jazzythecat.. interesting post on red hair. Thank you.
The thing is.. both my brother and I are redheads.. both with brown eyes.. and we both have freckles. Because my brother has no problem with tanning.. his freckles are much darker than mine.

|About those brown eyes. They have what is called tortois shell brown eyes...they are the ones with freckles. The ones with dark brown eyes have a different skin color..more olive undertones to them. Those types will tan, because they have a latin heritage to them. Protugual has many red heads with brown eyes that tan and have no freckles. |
Years ago I started researching red hair, because we have 3 in the family, who were born to brunette parents. So we were trying to figure how that happens. Seems it's skips a generation or two. All 3 of us redheads have different color eyes, different shade of red hair and skin colors. It's weird the way the genes line up.
I am a red head (have four different shades of it) with dark brown eyes and I tan. My mother and bro have dark brown hair and my dad has black hair. Can't find who on my dads side had red hair, but genetically is has to be there.

|So, if we were to use logic (I know that it's frowned upon in the states under the current administration, but bear with me...) , I've heard that one of the reasons men like redheads is because they are good in bed (supposedly). It is also said that women that are batshiat crazy are good in bed. Are you following me here? There could be a connection that redheads are batshiat crazy... I AM NOT SAYING THAT THEY ARE -- so don't start with the hate mail... I'm just saying that further research is warranted on this subject.|

|Redheads are hot however hot comes in every color hair, and I understand that anyone can be a redhead, or any other color these days. I like it when the carpet matches the drapes whatever color hair she has. |
Maybe thats why so many ladies shave completely so your not able to tell if its their true color or not.
What gets me is I like freckles, they are sexy to me, no matter what the hair color. They are not a requirement just an extra goodie to enjoy. I noticed on one red head I dated that I could feel a lot of the freckles as I stroked her skin. I could even feel the realy pale ones that never saw the light of day and were near impossible to see. I took great joy in being the Great hunggry freckle hunter, kissing and licking all I could find. I could even find them in the dark. She said I was lying that I couldn't feel them, she tested me blindfolded and I proved it. I could even find some of the small ones, I never did finish kissing every one of them.
There are a number of redheads here that are smokin hot.

Seems it's skips a generation or two.
Like everything, can skip generations, like twins, but doesn't necessarily. My gggggggrandmother was captured by Native Americans and the chief of the group adopted her because she had red hair. This is my father's side of the family and he had red facial hair, his hair on his head was pretty much black. His mother had red hair etc. etc. on up. Now my mom had auburn hair and her father had red hair. My big sister and brother have the red red color of hair. My sister had two red heads, a boy and a girl. My brother had a brown haired son and an auburn haired daughter. My younger brother has more of the brown hair and tans but some red facial hair, he has a red headed son and a blond daughter. Now my oldest has a dark blond hair color, but red beard and reallllly fair skin. I bought him a tee shirt that says, "warning, do not expose to light." My middle son has the brown hair with freckles and tans and my youngest is a girl with some red tones in her hair and the fair complexion with freckles. I expect my daughter's hair will get more red or more auburn colored as she matures. I know that my hair was more of a brown when little and got redder as I got older and now I have been told it looks strawberry blond. I still have tons of different shades of reds, browns, orange, and white mixed up in there.
Point is, seems on both sides of my family the red was in every generation.

|About the eye color thing and freckles...that can't be true BECAUSE....|
I happen to be a red head with brown eyes AND freckles. I actually have far more freckles than me redheaded sisters who have blue eyes.
Where did you hear it? I'm just interested....maybe i'm a mutated, redhead ;)
Posted: 8/26/2008 5:12:50 PM
Actually.. I have dark brown eyes.. as does my brother. My brother is a pale redhead in the winter. My sister is the one with the 'Spanish' olive skin.
Jazzythecat.. it sounds like very interesting research you have done. I have heard that the ancient Vikings (not the Minnesota ones.. kidding) also had red hair.
Posted: 8/26/2008 6:02:20 PM
|Oh wait....my mom and little brother are also brown eyed redheads with freckles...|
It is weird how some have freckles and some don't AND how many different shades can be in a single family. My mom, two sisters, me, and a little brother all have red hair and different shades; although my little brother's is pretty darn close to mine.
Posted: 8/26/2008 6:12:59 PM
|That is true about the Ancient Vikings being red heads. |
The freckles thing depends on if it's sun damage and what color your skin type is. You know how some people have that red headed coloring look to their skin, yet they are not red heads. Well, there are red heads that their skin color could go with any hair color.
By dark brown eyes, I mean they are so dark brown, that you can barely see, if see them at all, the black pupils, that is how deep dark brown they are.
My cousin is a red head...(the carrot top), she doesn't tan, and has hazel green eyes with freckles. She had 6 kids...none with red hair..all dark brown. Her granddaughter has red hair and looks just like her.
My other cousin has strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, pale skin, no freckles at all. She tans a little. Her parents and siblings all have dark hair.
I have reddish, golden dirty blonde hair, dark brown eyes, light olive colored skin and I tan. My parents and brother have dark hair and dark brown eyes.
The rest of the family is all dark haired, olive skinned and they tan....they get dark. It was the family joke, that it must have been the milk man. We got tired of that joke and did lots of research on the genetics of red hair. There are about 80 relatives and only 3 red heads. So we red heads banned together to figure it out.
In my family the red hair skips a generation or two. My great grandmother was a red head. There are no red headed men that we know of.

|Another little interesting tid bit. Men who do not have red hair, yet their mother was a red head, will more often then not, have a reddish beard. Genetically that means, they carry the recessive gene and can only pass it on.|

|One thing I've noticed about the reds I've known, is that they're way prettier than they think they are. I guess all that teasing they got as kids made 'em way more humble than they should have been...lol One gal I worked with stunned me literally speechless the first few times I saw her. She'd come up to ask me something, and I'd see that face, framed by that hair and all I could do was stammer something ... Then she'd walk away lookin' at me like I was nuts....lol I finally had to tell her," I'm really not a gibbering moron, it's just that you're the most beautiful woman I've ever met, and you're absolutely stunning." She laughed like I was crazy, but the next time she waited 'til I got my voice back.|

|Aww that's sweet :) I'm sure that is why redheads don't realize it though...years of torment|
Posted: 8/26/2008 8:48:53 PM
|My hair is fine and soft; everyone in my families is, but i do agree and notice that most redheads is more towards the coarse side of things. Hmm....interesting Thanks for sharing|

diameter infinitely variable
My big bro has like baby hair, my sister really nice and thick, and mine is somewhere in the middle.
Dr. Phil had a show on people that have physical reactions (like hives and itching) to people and it turns out it is all in their head.

|Very interesting. We have learned more about hair then anything else on this site.|
I have very thick hair and not because it's course. I just have many hair folicles on my head. Every hair dresser comments on it, then curses under their breath if they have to wash and style it. It's what is known in the trades as heavy hair. They tell me I have enough hair for 2 people.

|according to south park people with red hair are called the ginger kids, or fire crotches, or dam looks like a pack of fire ants down there, or dam i wanna beat them like a red headed step child,,or they must have the fighting spirit of the irish in them an can out drink a Russian,hey don't get mad at me just talking about what i've heard an hear,ok in the meantime some poeple like red heads an find them sexy an attractive everybody has thier own preferances an knows what turns them on..|
to each thier own..

|In my family, there is at least one person, usually more, in each generation that has red hair. Both of my kids have red hair, my dad and one of his brothers as well as thier mother are redheads and.....well you get the point. |
I have very dark red hair. No carrot-top, strawberry blonde or auburn. I think there are too many shades of red to be able to put them into only those 3 catagories. I don't fit into any of them.
As for the kind of attention I got when I was young from other kids....not always so nice. I think they were just jealous. They only wished they looked as good as a redhead.
Posted: 8/26/2008 10:36:21 PM
|Genetically there are only 3 recessive red haired genes. RR...Rh..rr.|
Within each of those 3 catagories you have various shades. But there are only those 3 catagories.
RR...is the carrot top shades
Rh...is the auburn shades
rr...is the strawberry blonde shades
I have no idea how many shades are in each one of those catagories. Only your hairdresser knows for sure.

|What is this pain between the sheets crap? Why do some people judge me on the color of my hair for pity sake???|

|I agree with the intense, fiery part, and yes, do not piss me off, but what is with the dirty, nasty part?|

|I know I am a late comer to this thread but I totally agree with you, dane x(way back near the start of this thread). Most stereotypes ARE founded in truth and this is No exception. Redheads are very much more prone to psychosis; from mild to bunny boiler! No joke. She wasn't called Pippy Long"stalking" for nothing... Though in all honesty, I found that redheads are chock- full of a distinct fury that manifests itself in the most intense, passionate, and flat-out enthusiastic intimacy a guy could ever have the fortune to limp away from. <img src=http://www.plentyoffish.com/smiles/icon_201.gif border=0>|

|I've found FAR more psychotic Dye-Job-Blondes than I EVER have redheads or any other color. Sad thing is the blondes tend towards stupid...as in "Artificial Lobotomy" stupid. I think the bleach melts their brains.|
My favorites amongst redheads have always been the Female Marines. Those gals...lovely and Dangerous!!

|Do you guys remember in the original Superman movie I think it was, there were criminals on Superman's home planet and Superman's dad, none other then Marlon Brando, banished these criminals into this glass plate thingy and launched them into outer space? |
Well that's where redheads should go too!
