Pinterest The first memory I have of my red hair is of wishing it away. I took a pair of sewing scissors and began hacking away at my hair in front of the TV. She ran in screaming, then grabbed one of the fallen pieces for her wallet. It seemed sunny, easy, uncomplicated. Like all kids, I wanted to fit in, but as a redhead, I always stuck out.
It varies greatly. And by age. Generally as people get older before they go grey , new hair grows in darker and often thicker. During puberty, new growth, different gene expression, and a different hormone mix means that secondary hair growth can be a different and darker shade than the stuff on the head. For men especially, the body hair will be darker than hair on the scalp.
By Bobby Box Oct 18 As a redhead, you grow up inherently different from most. During adolescence and teenhood, I was one of two redheads in both my elementary and high schools. She and I knew each other well, but we weren't friends. Aside from our hair color, we didn't have much in common.
