Raterity Redheads can change temperature quicker and much more


Each strand of red hair is generally thicker than other shades which compensates for the fact that redheads have less hair. Apparently they have – on average – 90,000 strands while blondes have 110,000, and brunettes have 140,000.

1. Redheads can change temperature quicker

This is because – according to research – redheads are more sensitive to hot and cold pain. Nothing to do with their mythical fiery temperament!

2. Redheads are more likely to develop skin cancer

Because of their commonly fair skin and sensitivity to ultraviolet light, redheads are more likely to develop skin cancer. The International Journal of Cancer reported in 2010 that natural redheads are approximately two and a half times as likely to develop the dangerous cancer as people with other hair hues.
