9 reasons to be proud of your unique red hair

It's unique to be a redhead and so many people wish they were as lucky as you – so embrace it! Here are all the reasons it's great to be a redhead!

1. You are Unique!
Under 2% of the global population have been blessed enough to be born a redhead. And of this 2%, it is thought that a quarter of redheads have dyed their hair. You are a genetic miracle, embrace it!

2. Redheads don’t go grey.
When you reach a certain age, you can bask in the fact that all of your friends are losing those golden highlights you once thought you envied.

3. In some cultures, people still believe that you’re a witch!
That could come in hand…

4. Americans and Asians love you!
If you are a fiery redhead, you are bound to have a few tourists ask to take a picture with you from time to time. If you are also Irish, CONGRATULATIONS you have just experienced what it’s like to be a celebrity.

5. Your body hair is blonde.
You could go a week without shaving your legs and no one would notice. You can head out on the town with legs like big foot and man, woman or beast would be none the wiser. PLUS, you get away with not bleaching/waxing your top lip half the time.

6. Easier for your friends and parents to spot  you in a crowd
Nobody likes getting lost. 

7. You’re in the same category as famous legends
Examples: Ed Sheeran, Ron Weasley, Prince Harry. 

8. Genetics
If you’re a redhead, it’s probably likely that one or both of your parents are the same. The redhead gene is recessive so it’s got to be a strong ass underdog gene to make it past the blondes and brunettes. The gene that you have is a genetic trait that has fought its way from your oldest ancestors to you. Be proud of your genes!

9. Always a hefty supply of factor 50+
On those hot days, when every factor 15, 20 and 25 are nowhere to be seen, factor 50+ stands tall and strong and waiting to be lathered upon your milk bottle complexion.
