I love red hair. In fact I'm going to dye it red whenever this henna grows out (another "reddish" color) My daughter's hair was blood red when she was born, and it stayed that way until she was like 5, now she's 23 and it's red-brown. My oldest son has red/blondish highlights in the front of his hair that are more pronounced in the summer. I've been told that there is a smattering of Irish and Scottish in my family, but I don't know if that really means anything as far as hair. *shrugs*
