Interesting :

Percentage of the population of people with red hair in Europe

https://www.reddit.com/r/MapPorn/commen ... h=a77f30f9

The colors of the map are tricky : except the grey, the darkest is the fewest.

I would dispute the map because I seldom meet other gingers or redheads

Most ginger headed and red headed people seem to come from Scotland or Ireland :-s

Perhaps they have dyed their hair ?

The colors show a percent amount but does not tell how many people it targets.

In France, the image we have of Irish people is red hair/green eyes :-D

Many years ago I lived in a village where all of a sudden there were several ginger headed babies, turned out to be the local milkman :ymdevil:

I should launch a movement promoting chestnut people. All about Blond or Brunette or Ginger hair in literature… We are the silent majority in France. :D

Beside light chestnut hair have a mixed composition of "eumélanine" (dark and fair hair) and "phélomelanine" (red hair).

So chestnut is the sum of all hair. Mine have blond and copper gleams in summer.

But I am still jealous of red-hair :D

Fortunately, my hair has faded but you certainly would not have been jealous of my carrot top :ymdevil:

Perhaps you should try lemon juice on your hair in the summer, it may well make your hair a lot brighter

Lemon juice makes hair dry. Cider vinegar is better.

A museum in Paris has an exhibition about red-hair people :

Red hair ! From Jean-Jacques Henner to Sonia Rykiel.


Why are there so many redheads in the works of Jean-Jacques Henner ? This exhibition will address this frequently-asked question. Paintings, caricatures, writings and letters have been studied to shed new light on the work of this artist whose use of redheads became his signature. They provide a better understanding of the way the artist worked with one colour in particular: red.

Through an enlightening exploration of Henner’s works, the exhibition provides insight on the perception of red hair during the 19th and 20th centuries, without venturing as far back as the Greek-Roman traditions, when, in the words of Michel Pastoureau: “red hair was always viewed unfavorably”. Whether a feature of pride, as it was for Sonia Rykiel, or heroized through the Belgian comic strip character, Spirou, “the mischievious boy with a big heart”, red hair stands out, attracts but also marginalizes. What does it mean to be a redhead? How is red hair portrayed? This exhibition will focus on these questions.

Male 'Rapunzel' claims women are jealous of his luscious long locks

Please click to enlarge:

Actor and model Cristiano Braga, 28, from Minas Gerais, Brazil, has been growing his 26inch long hair since 2012 when he decided to take the plunge, despite fearing it could lead to him being bullied at school

His striking look has attracted a lot of positive and negative attention, some from women who say it's 'unfair' for a man to have luscious locks like his.

Meanwhile men have accused him of wanting to 'turn' women's sexuality due to his long hair.

Cristiano has learned to brush off cruel trolls and says he is proud of his hair, which he maintains with natural oils such as aloe vera, avocado, camomile, mint, rosemary and vegetables.

His striking look has attracted a lot of positive and negative attention - some from women who say it's 'unfair' for a man to have luscious locks like his

Despite his hair being 2ft 2in in length, he says it only takes him five minutes to wash it and says he has been compared to Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

'I started to let my hair grow in 2012. I have no explanation for letting my hair grow; I looked in the mirror and decided to grow it, I've always liked long hair,' Cristiano said.

'There was a time, as my hair grew, I was quite criticised; people called me a woman, broom hair, scarecrow, they would cut my hair, they said I was ugly, weird.

'I get a lot more questions now; the strangest question I got was if I wore a wig, because my hair glowed a lot.

'Whenever someone approaches me on the street, I get a little embarrassed, because the person always draws the attention of others to me, and although it does not seem like it, I do not like to expose myself much.'

Despite his hair being two-foot-two in length, Cristiano says it only takes him five minutes to wash it and has been compared to Ariel from The Little Mermaid

Cristiano said he is shocked when people comment that his hair is better than theirs because it 'demonstrates how low a person's self-esteem is and needs to be worked on'.

He added: 'It makes me very sad when they ask me if I want to "turn" women because I have long hair - it shows that society does not accept what is different from the patterns.

'Prejudice is something very present in our society and must be fought. I am always called Jesus, John Lennon, Jared Leto, Axle Rose, Ariel, Merida, Little Mermaid, Rapunzel, among other personalities and characters.

'An interesting case was a group of deaf people who approached me using sign language to ask me if I was from a band, they thought I was famous.

As a child, Christiano had short hair until he decided to grow it long in 2012 - though he was worried he might be bullied for it.

Cristiano said he is called Jesus, John Lennon, Jared Leto, Axle Rose, Ariel, Merida, Little Mermaid, Rapunzel, among other personalities and characters

'They even took pictures of me. I even find that many people take pictures of my hair without me knowing.'

While he doesn't know why he had the desire to grow his hair, he says his grandmother believes it's due to his indigenous ancestry.

Cristiano says that, for now, he negotiates with his agents to keep his hair this length for his acting career.

'I always found long hair beautiful both in women and men, I do not know why, I thought it was incredible that we all have hair the way we want it,' he admits.

'Even though I wanted long hair, I was ashamed, as I was concerned about being bullied in school. My grandmother says that my desire to have long hair is due to my indigenous ancestry.

'My grandmother's grandmother was indigenous and had her hair down to her feet. It may be something spiritual or cultural.

'It seems that my hair protects me from the bad things in the world, I feel much stronger and more confident.

Cristiano, pictured with two female friends, says men have accused him of trying to 'turn' women

Showing off his long wind-swept hair, Cristiano said it's taken him seven years to get his flame red locks this long

'For me I would continue growing, without limits, but I am an actor, and in case I have to do some work, where I have to cut my hair, unfortunately I will have to do it, but until now I have managed to negotiate.'

Cristiano says having long hair is an 'incredible experience' and has taught him to value himself and have more confidence without worrying about the opinions and criticism of others.

'Life passes by very fast for us to live our lives according to others, so we must live for ourselves and as we wish,' he says.

Actor Cristiano said he has always found long hair beautiful both in women and men, and he calls having it an 'incredible experience' which boosts his confidence

'Now, many find it cool, and use my hair as inspiration to let their hair grow. Others who are more normative, find it strange for a man to have great hair.

'Have patience; hair takes its time to grow and people will criticise you, so do not get discouraged.

'Do what you want, the hair is yours, life is yours, enjoy your way, be happy.'
