I've been a ginger/red head/auburn hair colour all my life, even since I was a really little kid. Although it has toned down a lot since then! I though I'd write a tongue-in-cheek post about being ginger, it's part of my identity and who am I and no, I would never dye my hair!
Things you can relate to if you're ginger
1. Being told "you have no soul"
Because that's really true isn't it?! Yes South Park started it, but it's really getting boring now.
2. Getting sunburnt at the thought of a hot summer's day
Yes I wear a minimum of factor 50 on my face and can guarantee I will get sunburnt at least once on holiday.
3. Certain coloured clothes just don't suit you
For me, it's yellow and there's no shade of yellow which'll ever suit me or my hair. Stick with greens, blues and burgundys!
4. Learning the long list of nicknames for ginger kids
Luckily I wasn't bullied for being ginger, I was actually really proud of my hair as a kid. But that doesn't mean I didn't escape the names of carrot top/rusty/orange top/jaffa cake/ginger nut etc.
But we have the coolest redhead celebrities... Ed Sheeran, Rupert Grint, Prince Harry, Adele and Julianne Moore just to name a few. Plus. people actually want to dye their hair red and ginger, so much so that there's tons of dyes and haircare products just for redheads.
