30 Day Challenge- Hair

#7 Hair
This photo challenge has been developed by Mike and Ziva, you can see everyone
participating by linking up @ Ziva's Inferno.

I am one of the minority- a redhead, carrot top, ginger,  specifically my hair is a strawberry blonde.

Only about 2% of the world's population has some form of red hair. Most redheads have some kind of ancestry from either Ireland or Scotland. ( I have recently found out my roots are Scottish)

Another interesting fact- people with red hair have different sensitivity to pain compared to people with other hair colors & in general redheads require greater amounts of anesthetics.

As I get older I am losing my red- more and more of pure white hairs keep cropping up. My great grandmother went snow white. I'm not ready for that yet. Both of my daughters are redheads as well...


Me-my hair helped from a magic elixir in a bottle thanks to my oldest the hair stylist- she was able to match my original hair color

  2. Used to be reddish. Now I'm white-ish. Time marches on.

  3. Being partially color-blind, all look blonde to me but beautiful. Unless it is Bozo clown red, I can't see it. I have roots to Scotland and Ireland. What a very interesting fact. While red hair does run in our family, I got my Prussian grandma's thick brown hair and I have a freakishly high threshold for pain. Most pain killers do nothing for me. I guess Scotland just gave me a penchant for men in kilts and whisky. Have you been to Scotland yet? I puffy heart it! Can't wait to go back.

  9. Lovely red hair and lovely daughters! My hubby had red hair - got darker with age and now is going grey. Both of our kids have a red tint in their hair if the sun hits it just right.

  10. You have the most beautiful shade of red hair! I'm envious! (You can tell because my green eyes are even greener than usual.)

  11. GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS! I was so red as a child they called me Bozo. I HATED it. Now I love it and wish that my age wasn't changing MY hair color! My daughter is a redhead too... I hope all of our girls appreciate how amazing red hair is. Your girls are beautiful!

  12. Why do you have a camera stuck to your face. I mean, sure, it's convenient if you're a photographer, but it makes it hard to see you. Your face, anyway.

    Just sayin'
