Men with Red Hair: Ever dated anyone who was a natural redhead ginger man? Ladies, if you have been missing out on this, it can only be for two reasons:
- You have never met a red haired gorgeous boy, because of how rare they are.
- You have passed up a redhead without actually considering the various possibilities!
Here is a list of reasons to get you started and hooked to them!
10 Unbelievable Facts You Didn’t Know About Redheads
1. Genetic Mutation
Only parents who have the mutated MC1R gene can have naturally redhead children. Even then there is about 25% chances that the parents don’t possess red hair of their own.
2. Rarity of Redheads
In a world full of people with familiar faces and personalities, redheads are scarcely 140 million. This makes them a rarity, found in concentration of 13% in Scotland, and 10% in Ireland. Persons of any ethnicity can have red hair. It is solely dependent on the ancestry of the person. Mostly, though, persons with European decent sport red hair.
3. Redheads Have More Sex!
Women and men with red hair are said to be have a higher libido, and tend to have more sex than their brunette or blond counterpart. Whether this is related to their hair color or genetic mutation, we don’t know for sure, but German sex researchers have found that redheads are likely to have three times more sex.
4. Red Hair is Naturally Thicker
Red hair is thicker in density than normal hair of other colors, and so it makes slightly more sense that they were blessed with this trait as they tend to have a smaller count of hair follicles on their heads. This is not to discredit redheads for having the most flaming tresses!
5. Sensitivity to Hot and Cold
This is on the grounds that – as indicated by research – redheads are more susceptible to hot and cold temperature variations and pain. Nothing to do with their legendary blazing personality, we hope!
So hop on the bandwagon and find yourself a man who is redhead, and watch how he responds to even the slightest of touches and soft breaths.
6. Redheads Produce their Own Vitamin D
As they can’t adequately retain Vitamin D, redheads produce their own Vitamin D internally when they’re presented to low light conditions. This means that your redhead guy will be able to stay in and spend more time indoors, without going outdoors for nutrient values.
7. Global Warming
Given that red hair doesn’t adjust to warm climes, the hair color could, eventually, wind up wiped out altogether. Climate change might actually cause for redheads to be on the decline in the world! So our best advice is to grab one before its too late.
8. Redheads Age Better!
Studies have found that people with red hair tend to look on an average, two years younger than their blond or brunette counterpart. The study published in Biological Journals surveyed many a participant and asked them to guess the ages of almost 2,700 elderly persons. Those who contained the MC1R gene mutation were said to look a lot younger.
9. Prostate Cancer
Men with red hair have been studied by the Finland National Institute of Health and Medicine for years now, and studies conducted there have found that these men were 54% less likely to develop prostate cancer than men with hair of any other color naturally. This is because the gene which mutates the hair color is also responsible for controlling the way that cancer cells divide and grow.
10. Freckle Tanning
Ever noticed Eddie Redmayne? The small dotted tan on his face is made up entirely of freckles and this trait is shared by all redheads. Some have called this the sexiest, and most underrated quality in men, but rest assured, once you see just how cute it is, there is no going back!
