For All You Redheads

This is just something that'll tell you how special redheads are. And maybe an explanation. Because there's a lot of strange things about redheads that make them special. These are just a few facts.

This is just a fun thing I wanted to do. I found all this stuff completely by accident. Like, one of the things that popped up under the google search bar was something like, "10 facts about redheads," or something like that, and I was like, "Hey, I'm a redhead!" And then I did a ton of research, and now I'm an expert.

  1. - Redheads can make their own Vitamin D. They can't absorb it properly, so they produce their own. That's one reason why redheads get sunburned so easily.
  2. -Redheads are able to sense changes in the weather better. They can also adjust to weather changes, because they are more sensitive to hot and cold pain.
  3. - Pain is a strange thing for redheads. They're more sensitive to pain, but have better pain endurance. If they need anesthesia, they need around 20% more of it. But for normal painkillers, like ibuprofen, or something, they don't need as much of it as the average person.
  4. - Redheads are able to handle spicy foods better. They actually injected the chemical that's in hot peppers into redheads, and they hardly reacted to it, whereas the non-redheads did react to it.
  5. - If a redhead dyes their hair, the pigment would first have to be stripped. They have the longest lasting pigment in their hair. Their hair isn't likely to turn gray either. It'll fade into a rose gold, and then to a white.
