Question hair naturally turning red???

OK so in the summer time my hair usually gets a tint of red to it. We've literally had one week of nice weather up here and now it's crappy again but this morning I noticed my hair has a definite copper tint to it, almost like I what I would expect from hennaing. Does this mean my hair is porus, as I've heard that dark hair turning red can be a sign of that, or does it just mean that my hair may turn really red this summer? I don't mind it so far but if it turns any more "red" it will look orangie and I don't want that! Anyone else ever encountered this? What's the dealio?

I think a lot of people have hair that has the propensity to turn red. Mine does, and two of my four children's hair does as well. Well, my daughter was born with bright red hair that has gotten a little darker over time, but still brightens in the sunlight. I think it's just heredity. My other two children have black hair that doesn't turn red at all whatsoever. It can look lighter if it is on the dry side, though. When it's well moisturized (or wet, or oily) it can appear darker as well. Maybe that's it.

Hey i was born with bright red hair that has darkened over time. Still red, just not as red. B4 going CG i was trying that John Freida Red stuff along with the glaze. I suspect my ends are porous from the flat iron because even though i have stopped using the glaze, my ends looks more bright than my whole head. I can only assume it's because of the red glaze and the reason why the top of my head isnt that same shade is because i'm technically on the low porousity side. It could be that your hair is porous and it still kept that color... but i have no clue. that's just what i think.

ALL hair colors have red in them. Red is just the *last* color to fade when you bleach hair. That's why you get what I call "The Great Pumpkin" look when dark haired people don't bleach their hair properly. It's very orange-y or reddish in color.

Many darker haired people get a tinge of this from sun exposure or specific styling products.
