Podcast S5 EP8: “Rest Assured I’m a Redhead” with Neurosurgeon + TikToker, Dr. Betsy Grunch

Lady Spine Doc is on the Pod!

Posted on

If you’ve ever been told you’re “not a redhead” because your hair isn’t the brightest or most vibrant shade of red, you’re not alone. This week’s guest has been told she “doesn’t have red hair” because it’s strawberry blonde, but she’s putting that to rest. 

We can’t wait for you to spend time with Dr. Betsy Grunch. She is a board-certified Neurosurgeon and a natural redhead. With over 1.2 million followers at the time of recording, she posts about spinal health and motherhood. She also speaks about redhead experiences like getting sunburnt and of course her beauty routine. You can find Dr. Grunch on Instagram and TikTok under the username @ladyspinedoc

Her main interests are minimally invasive spine techniques, and advancing the field of neurotrauma. She lives with her husband, Ray, two children, Riley and Beatrice, and her two dogs, Pancake, and Butters, in Gainesville, Georgia. 

Adrienne + Stephanie chatted with Dr. Grunch about what it was like growing up as a redhead, how she got her start on social media and how she grew a viral TikTok account. They also dove into some beauty questions to discuss Dr. Grunch’s makeup habits and preferences, and what changes have happened to her red hair now that she’s in her 40s. 

Dr. Grunch also answers the question we all want to know, what’s more exclusive the Redhead Club or the Female Surgeons Club? Julianne Moore is famously quoted saying, “Redheads are in a secret club.” We loved Dr. Grunch’s answer. 

You can hear Stephanie, Adrienne and Dr. Betsy Grunch discuss all these topics and more on the latest episode of the How to be a Redhead Podcast available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts!

Redheads, This Could Save Your Life: Know The Signs of Melanoma

Learn the melanoma ABCs:

Posted on

Redheads are at an increased risk of skin cancer, specifically melanoma. That’s why it’s extremely important we know not only how to avoid it (by using sunscreen and proper sun protection), but we also need to know how to spot it. Skin cancer can often be removed to avoid spreading and is one of the most curable forms of cancer. But, knowing the signs to catch it early is crucial. Absolutely crucial. 

1. Know where to look

Melanoma skin cancer can develop anywhere on the body, but the most common areas are those that have exposure to the sun. The face, neck, back, arms, and legs are among the most common places for melanoma to develop. 

2. Watch your moles & freckles

Moles are completely normal and most moles are nothing to worry about. However, if you see a change in an existing mole, you should get it checked out right away. Non-cancerous moles are generally uniform in color and are smaller than .25” in diameter. While they may change slightly over the years, they usually don’t change too much, so if you see them changing get them checked out promptly. The same goes for freckles — although new freckles are normal, look for changes in the shape or color of freckles, or look for raised freckles. These may not be freckles at all and could be melanoma spots. 

3. Look for new skin growths

Any new skin growth should be looked at by your dermatologist. New skin growths may come with age or changes in your body, and many of them may be as harmless as a mole, skin tag, or freckle. But, they may be signs of skin cancer so it’s better to have them checked out. 

4. Know Your ABCs…

According to the Mayo Clinic, there’s a simple trick you can use when determining if a mole, or freckle, may be something to be concerned about. You just need to use the letters ABCDE:

  • A is for asymmetrical shape. Look for moles with irregular shapes, such as two very different-looking halves.
  • B is for irregular border. Look for moles with irregular, notched, or scalloped borders — characteristics of melanomas.
  • C is for changes in color. Look for growths that have many colors or an uneven distribution of color.
  • D is for diameter. Look for new growth in a mole larger than 1/4 inch (about 6 millimeters).
  • E is for evolving. Look for changes over time, such as a mole that grows in size or that changes color or shape. Moles may also evolve to develop new signs and symptoms, such as new itchiness or bleeding.

Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink: Take a Look At Her Recent Mag Covers

She proves redheads can wear red

Posted on

Sadie Sink made her screen acting debut in 2013 when she was just 11-years-old. By 2016, she was cast as a regular in the wildly popular Netflix show Stranger Things. Now at 20, Sink has made a name for herself in television, movies, and even music, when she played the lead role in Taylor Swift’s All Too Well Music Video. She also played a lead roll in the recent smash The Whale which won an Academy Award, Critic’s Choice Award, and so much more. 

With over a dozen nominations and four awards under her belt, Sink is rising to fame faster than anyone could imagine. With this rise to fame and her coming of age in Hollywood, we get to see Sink embrace her own style and voice. Take a scroll through her recent magazine covers: 

Flaunt Magazine

Sink did an interview, video, and photo shoot with Flaunt magazine, where she was styled in Thom Browne. The shoot shows her in a mix of masculine and feminine silhouettes and pairings like more masculine ties paired with heels and skirts with men’s dress shirts. The colors lean more muted with pops of black and white. 

This style feels true to Sink’s own style which we often see on her Instagram. A mix of large oversized coats and jeans and soft feminine sweaters and sweet silhouettes smatter her feed. Plus, take a look at those redhead brows. We love how they’re pronounced. 

ES Magazine

We see the down-to-earth side on this cover with Sadie Sink pretending to talk on a landline 1990’s telephone. Her hair is wavy, her makeup is minimal (we’re nodding again for the great redhead brows) and her style is comfortable.

Elle Mexico 

REDHEADS CAN WEAR RED! We don’t mean to yell, but how gorgeous does Sadie Sink look in red?! Well, all redheads look great in red (in our opinion). She rocks the look with another set of bold redhead brows, a soft red lip and hair back for a classic look.

We can’t wait to see how Sink evolves her style as the years go on and are excited for all the things she has coming next.

#RedheadSkin: Are You Using Too Many Products?

Less is More!

Posted on

Have you ever watched a beauty influencer video and noticed how much skincare product they apply? Then, you probably compare it to your own skincare routine and wonder, “Do I need to use that much?” It’s important to remember that most influencers have huge stashes of product and can afford to use a ton. Most influencers will never use all the products they buy or are gifted, and most likely many of the products expire long before they are touched.

But, the question is, is it even necessary to use that much? 

Here’s how to know how much skincare is too much and what you should actually have in your collection: 

Quality over quantity 

Quality over quantity is key when it comes to skincare. It’s better to have a couple of high-quality products that actually make a difference than a bunch of mediocre products that won’t do much. If you’re looking to build or revamp your skincare routine, there’s a simple method you can use. 

Stock up on basics 

Always start with the basic three: cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF. These are the most important things to keep your redhead skin healthy and protected. If you’ve have those three down, you can start to add more. The fourth thing you want is an exfoliant. This might be built into your cleanser, or it might be separate. The next level of basics is about keeping your skin looking good. This includes eye cream, acne/blemish treatment, masks, and serums. Choose one of each and use them regularly. 

Know the right amount to use per product

For your skincare items (cleanser, moisturizer and serum), you should only be using a dime size each time you apply. If you feel like you need more moisture, you can up your moisturizer to a quarter size.

For sunscreen, make sure your entire face is covered and of the body, make sure you’re applying a full-shot glass worth.

Excellent tips for keeping your skincare collection small and purposeful

  • Don’t buy more until the ones you have are gone (or almost gone). Skincare does expire and having too much back-stock could lead to wasted money. 
  • Use methods like skin cycling to help make the most of the products you’re using. 
  • Don’t buy too much of a product. This keeps waste down and allows you to try something new when you’re out.
  • Don’t fall for trendy skincare. That doesn’t mean you can’t be influenced or try new things, but make sure it has a purpose in your routine and you aren’t just using it because you saw it online. 
  • Add new items one at a time. Adding a new product to your routine can be good, but introduce them one at a time. This helps you know what’s wrong if you’re suffering from irritation.

Is Your Red Hair Thinning? Here’s How to Fix It

Remember, some hair loss is normal but it's best to be proactive

Posted on

Thinning hair can happen at any age, for a number of reasons. If you’re struggling with your red hair thinning, you might feel like giving up. But, there are ways to stop or slow the process. Here’s everything you need to know about fixing your thinning red hair

1. Visit a doctor

The most common reason for hair loss and thinning of the hair is age, but there are also a number of medical factors that can cause thinning of the hair. Childbirth, illnesses such as COVID, diet, thyroid disorders and vitamin deficiencies can all cause loss of hair. Visiting your doctor to find out why you’re suffering from hair loss is the first step. 

If you’ve just given birth or had an illness, your hair loss may stop on its own, you just have to give it time. If your doctor diagnoses you with a protein or vitamin deficiency you can stop or slow hair loss by filling that gap in your intake. 

2. Adjust your diet 

If your doctor does tell you hair loss is due to a lack of protein, or your doctor finds no reason for your hair loss, it may be due to diet. Not getting enough protein or nutrients in your diet can cause all sorts of issues with your hair, body, and skin. Strive for a more balanced diet and make sure you’re eating plenty of protein and healthy fats. 

3. Use the right hair products 

When suffering from hair loss, you may be able to use certain hair products to help promote new growth. Opt for shampoos and other hair products that contain ingredients for promoting growth. You can also take vitamins like biotin and do scalp treatments to help your new growth be healthy. 

4. Be gentle on your hair 

Being rough on your hair, over-brushing, over-washing and tight hairstyles can all lead to breakage and hair loss. Try to be more gentle with your hair, brushing it in sections starting towards the bottom, using a silk or satin pillowcase, wearing protective hairstyles at night and not tugging or pulling on your hair can all keep it healthy. 

5. Keep your scalp healthy 

In addition to keeping your hair healthy, you have to keep your scalp healthy. An unhealthy scalp will lead to excess hair loss and reduced new growth. Keep your scalp healthy by washing it thoroughly, using a clarifying shampoo if needed, and reducing your use of hair products like dry shampoo and hair spray.

‘LPBW’: Fans Think Audrey Roloff Is Lying About Having Natural Red Hair

This is our take. We're answering some of your questions..

Posted on

Audrey Roloff gained her following when she started dating and (eventually) married Jeremy Roloff. She appeared alongside Jeremy’s family on the TLC show Little People, Big World. Now Audrey has 1.6 million Instagram followers and is a New York Times bestselling author

Audrey is known for her fiery red hair, but fans of the show and some of her followers have a theory that she isn’t a natural redhead like she claims to be. We did some digging and as redhead experts here’s what we think:

As far as we can tell…

Audrey is a natural redhead. Her freckles and complexion complements her red hair, too. We understand the speculation, but let us answer some of the popular questions asked on Audrey’s social media pages. 

Redheads: “But why is Audrey’s hair only vibrant some of the time?” 

H2BAR: As fans have pointed out, Audrey’s hair is extremely vibrant and red in most of her photos. But in a few Instagram stories, it appears to be more brown than red. The simple fact is, it’s editing. If you scroll through her feed you can see almost every single photo has increased saturation and enhanced colors. This would lead her hair to look much more vibrant in photos.

Additionally, lighting can make red hair look different and if you have darker red hair, it can look almost brown in certain lighting. Red hair really comes out in the sunlight and in brighter lighting. 

Redheads: “Why don’t her kids have red hair?” 

H2BAR: For fans, a major red flag has been that her kids don’t have red hair, but people need to remember red hair is a recessive gene. Audrey’s redhead gene may skip one or more generations or her husband may not carry the gene —  which means her kiddos wouldn’t have red hair. Her kids are also blonde and red hair can show up later as our hair darkens with age.

Redheads: “Her hair looks dyed, it doesn’t look natural.” 

H2BAR: Some people think Audrey’s hair simply “looks” dyed. This is matter of opinion, but remember lots of redhead touch up their roots, get a glaze or gloss or use color depositing shampoo to keep their locks vibrant. This doesn’t mean she isn’t a natural redhead. If you scroll back on Audrey’s social media every photo of her for the past 10-15 years shows her with this same color, as do some throwback photos from when she was a kid.

Our final thoughts

For a natural redhead, there is no worse comment than, “your hair doesn’t look red.” So, if Audrey says her hair is natural, we don’t want to offend her because we know the feeling when it happens to us. Take a scroll through her social and you will never see roots:

The Ultimate Summer Sunscreen Guide for Redheads

5 things you want (and don’t want) to know about keeping your redhead skin protected this summer.

Posted on

Sunscreen is the most important part of any redhead’s skincare routine, especially in the summer. Understanding sunscreen lingo and proper sunscreen use can be confusing, so we’ve gathered everything you need (and don’t need) to know in this ultimate guide for summer sunscreen usage

1. Keywords all redheads should know

  • SPF: SPF stands for sun protection factor and this in combination with the number next to it measures how well the product will protect your skin from UV rays. Learn more about SPF numbers and how to choose the best one in this helpful article: What Does the SPF Number on Sunscreen Mean?
  • Chemical Sunscreen: A sunscreen that absorbs UV rays before your skin can.
  • Mineral Sunscreen: A sunscreen that physically blocks UV rays from reaching your skin.
  • Broad Spectrum: A sunscreen product that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • UVA / UVB: The two harmful forms of UV rays that cause sunburn and skin cancer. Learn more about UVA, UVB, and even UVC rays in this helpful article: UVA, UVB, and UVC: Why Redheads Should Understand the Difference 
  • UV Index: The UV index is a number assigned to how much UV exposure there is at a given time. The scale is from 1-11+ with 1 being low exposure and 11+ being extremely high exposure. The higher the UV index, the more likely you are to burn and/or have your skin and eyes damaged by UV rays. Let’s dig more into the UV index numbers below:

2. Why redheads should have knowledge about the UV Index

  • 1-2 means Low Exposure – Wear sunglasses if it’s bright out, if you burn easily, consider wearing sunscreen and using sun protection clothing.
  • 3-5 means Moderate Exposure – Sunscreen and sun protection should be used outdoors. Avoid direct sunlight during midday.
  • 6-7 means High Exposure – Protection against the sun is needed by all. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and sun protection clothing should be worn. Reduce sun exposure between 11 am and 4 pm. 
  • 8-10 means Very High Exposure – Unprotected skin will be damaged quickly, take extra precautions. Avoid the sun between 11 am and 4 pm. If you are exposed to the sun be sure to wear sun protection clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen. 
  • 11+ means Extreme Exposure – Avoid the sun, seek shade, and wear sun protection clothing, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Skin and be damaged within minutes.

3. The 7 golden rules of sunscreen every redhead should know 

  • Always reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating.
  • Wait 15 minutes after applying sunscreen to go out into the sun.
  • Sunscreen is necessary even on cold or cloudy days.
  • SPF should be the last step in your skincare routine, but applied before makeup products. 
  • Sunscreen should be applied liberally to all exposed skin.
  • If sunscreen cannot be reapplied every 2 hours, other sun protection should be used such as hats, protective clothing, or seeking shade. 
  • You can layer sunscreens, but don’t mix them!

The Many Iconic Redheads on The Graham Norton Show

But the video is missing one of our favorite redheads of all time..

Posted on

The Graham Norton Show is a popular BBC comedy talk show that focuses on people, trends, stories, and pop culture. Many notable names have sat on the big red sofa, and among those, there have been a number of redheads. Recently, the show put an “Iconic Redheads” compilation video on their YouTube channel with clips of some of the best redhead guests they have had over the years. 

The video features clips from interviews with tons of redhead celebs like Nicole Kidman who talks about her experience on the cover of Dolly Magainze which was a popular teen magazine in Australia. Kidman, who is a natural redhead, but appears on the show with blonde hair, let viewers in on a little secret. She states that her hair wasn’t actually as red as the magazine wanted it, so they dyed it more vibrant for the cover photo.

Jessica Chastain comes up twice in the video, once when she’s mentioned by name by actress Bryce Dallas Howard. Howard told a story about how in the “early days of acting”, she and Chastain were often mistaken for one another.

Chastain then has her own clip where she talks about how UK people are mean to redheads, which isn’t the case as often in the United States. She even mentioned how she’s been in other countries filming movies and had British men yell at her for being a “ginger”. Her parents prepped her for this by teaching her some cute comebacks. 

Other clips include Isla Fisher showing off her pig impersonation, Emma Stone talking about her dream to move to LA and become an actor at just 14, and Ed Sheeran and his double who is often hired for work Ed Sheeran can’t commit to a job. Celebs Amy Adams, Karen Gillan, and Michael Fassbender are also featured in the video. 

We are very surprised Julianne Moore wasn’t featured in the video. She has been a guest on show many times. Here’s one of our favorite clips of Moore on The Graham Norton show in February 2023:

What Is The MC1R Gene, Also Known As The “Redhead Gene”?

Everything you need to know about the gene that gives you red hair

Posted on

You probably already know that the gene responsible for giving you red hair is called the MC1R gene. But, do you know what it really is and why it’s responsible for creating redheads? Here’s the fascinating facts about the MC1R gene and you don’t need to be a scientist to follow it: 

What does the MC1R gene do exactly?

Redheads are made up of tens of thousands of genes and one of those genes is the MC1R gene. According to, “the MC1R gene provides instructions for making a protein called the melanocortin 1 receptor. This receptor plays an important role in normal pigmentation. The receptor is primarily located on the surface of melanocytes, which are specialized cells that produce a pigment called melanin.” What this means is that the MC1R gene helps to determine melanin, which gives us the color of our skin, hair, and eyes.

Who has the MC1R gene?

MC1R is often talked about like it’s a special gene that redheads have and others don’t. It’s even been nicknamed the “redhead gene.” However, that isn’t quite accurate. You may be surprised to know that everyone has the MC1R gene, and it’s actually a variation of the gene that causes red hair. This redhead variation must be present in both parents for a child to have red hair. 

Where does red hair come from? 

The redhead variation of the MC1R gene causes the body to have higher levels of pheomelanin, which in turn may cause red hair. Along with red hair, the gene commonly manifests fair skin, freckles, increased sensitivity to sun exposure, sensitive skin, and other common redhead traits

Redhead Men, Here’s Are 5 Game Plans If You’re Dealing With Hair Loss

This One is For You Redhead Men!

Posted on

Hair loss, thinning of the hair, and fading of the hair are naturally occurring. Redheaded women are usually concerned about a loss of pigment and thinning of the hair. For redhead men, the biggest concern is balding. So, what can redhead men do if they notice they are starting to bald? Is there any way to slow down the natural process? Here’s everything you need to know:

1. Keep your scalp healthy

Aside from age, a big reason many men start to bald early in life is due to an unhealthy scalp. Treating your scalp right will ensure the hair you have will be healthy and continue to grow. You can maintain a healthy scalp by washing your hair with shampoo that contains ingredients like zinc, biotin, niacin, and caffeine. Natural oils like coconut oil, tea tree oil, argan oil, rosemary oil, and castor oil can also help to promote healthy hair growth. Scalp scrubs and scalp massages are another way to stimulate the scalp and promote new growth. 

2. Take vitamins and supplements*

Vitamins B, C, E, zinc, biotin and iron can all help with promoting hair growth. Additionally, hair growth supplements can be taken. These supplements should always be used under the supervision of a doctor.

3. Use a product line to help with hair regrowth

Many men have seen a big difference after using the Regenix hair regrowth line. It’s custom formulation with plant-based science and most importantly, it is drug free. Unlike other hair regrowth products, Regenix asks each customer to send pieces of hair into their lab to study where you hair is going, and what you should do to restore your growth. You follow a special daily routine, and celebrities like Matthew McConaughey have raved about the product. Internally at H2BAR, we have had a natural redhead man test this product line for up to 6 weeks before recommending it here. We have seen no scalp irritation and in fact, we’ve noticed new hair growing where it was thinning.

4. Get a hair transplant

If your hair growth is age-related or you’re suffering from male pattern baldness, you may not be able to get new growth. Unfortunately, this is part of life, but if it bothers you, you can always consider a hair transplant to help achieve the look of more hair. 

5. Embrace the bald!

And of course, you can always embrace the bald! Letting go of our hair is a hard thing for any redhead to swallow but often shaving your head and embracing the bald can help you to look and feel younger and you won’t have to struggle with your hairline anymore. 

Rock it like a Redhead!

*Before any of the above is done,  you should always be used under the supervision of a doctor.
