...and I wouldn't have it any other way!! I should point out that I am the only redhead in my family. My sister and mum have dark brown hair, and my dad is pure white now, but when he was younger had brown hair too.
When I was very little, lots of people would comment on what a lovely colour my hair was. And they were right, it is rather lovely. I never thought this way when I was younger, as I was teased for being "ginger", although my hair is more auburn than ginger. I got called names at school like Tizer, Irn Bru, Carrot Top, all the usual ones.
I've never thought of dyeing it, it would feel so wrong I'm so pale I wouldn't suit any other colour of hair! People pay lots of money to get their hair the same colour of mine, so dye is not an option for me.
It does go lighter in the sun, but now that I'm a bit older, there are some white hairs creeping in.
But I don't care! I am Ginger and Proud!!
