1. People stare at you
Yeah, we are all in the same boat. Natural or dyed, we all get the stares. Flattering at first, but when you’re trying to go on with your day, it gets slightly uncomfortable. Especially if those who are staring, say nothing and have a “puzzled” look on their face.
2. Your hair changes color in the sun
If you aren’t aware of this, I found this out when I was walking while the sun was setting. I have never seen my hair a more attractive color before. I highly recommend all redheads to try it. Get someone to go with you and take a picture. Trust me, it’s beautiful.
3. You have heard the “soulless” jokes one too many times
Yes. As humorous as it is for others to crack those jokes, it does becomes one of those jokes that has lost its zing. We just don’t find it as funny as the person who’s telling the joke. Let’s go back to talking about how magical our hair is!

4. Your hair color is compared to fruits and vegetables
Magical? Not sure, but I was constantly asked if my hair tasted like strawberries. As I got older, I was compared to oranges and carrots. Now my hair is the color of copper or a tomato. I know my blonde haired sister is never asked if her hair tastes of food.
5. You find yourself staring at your hair when you are near a mirror
Guilty as charged. Can you blame me? I simply wanted to see what everyone else saw in my hair. Growing up thinking my hair is not all that special. I mean, it is just hair. I wanted to see what was so great about it. Now, I can’t help my stare and admire everything about it.
