Read some facts about gingers here! Did you know Ireland has the second highest concentration of gingers in the world?
Redheads have thicker hair than anyone else. Each strand of red hair is generally thicker than other shades which compensates for the fact that redheads have less hair. Apparently they have – on average – 90,000 strands while blondes have 110,000, and brunettes have 140,000.
Blue eyes and red hair forms the rarest combo on earth. Most (natural) redheads will have brown eyes, followed by hazel or green shades.
Climate change is threatening the gene. Given that red hair doesn’t adapt to warm climes, the gene could – at some point – become extinct. A scientist told ScotlandNow: “I think the regressive gene is slowly dying out… Climate change could see a decline in the number of people with red hair in Scotland.
On average, people with red hair are 20% more resistant to aesthetic than people without. No one knows why. Maybe it’s because they have super powers.
Comedians in the 19th century used to don red wigs in order to appear funnier to their audiences. Regardless of whether they were laughing at the red hair or with the red hair, they were laughing. That’s all that’s important!
Gingers are historically thought of as wild and ferocious people. This is more down to their association with the Celtic people in general. The invading Romans (who ended up writing the history we read) had never encountered the colour before, and the native Celts – many of whom were ginger – were understandably resistant to the foreign invaders. Moreover, the Vikings, who also sported the hair, were known as ferocious, warrior-like savages, adding to the image.
