Up close: Natural redheads

Auburn hair colour is such a unique hue, from sun kissed gingers to strawberry blondes. This natural hair colour is the most rare and sort after.

Lush wigs have a selection of red hair here
Red hair needs no introduction but to simply look on in awe. There are however a few myths and facts to absorb about this beautiful colour.

Myths

  • Redheads are witches. From the 1400s through the 1700s, red-haired women where deemed to be witches.
    During the Spanish Inquisition, red hair was the sign of a witch who had stolen hell’s fire, and ironically, burning them at the stake was the only way to solve the problem.
  • The Ancient Greeks believed they turned into vampires when they died.

Facts

  • Natural red hair is caused by a series of genetic mutations in a specific gene and these mutations are said to cause not only red hair but also pale skin and hypersensitivity.
  • The most common eye colour is brown, and blue eyes and redhair are the most unique.
  • But on the bright side, redheads look around two years younger than they actually are.
  • Bees have been proven to be more attracted to redheads. Watch out for those stings.
  • Redheads actually have less hair than most other people. On average they only have 90,000 strands of hair, but they are much thicker.
  • Redheads produces more vitamin D in a shorter amount of time than people with other hair colours.
    Which makes sense as they can’t stay out in the sun to long. (anyone who has a friend with red locks will know this)
