"Red-shameless!" Or a couple of interesting facts about people who "sun-kissed"

"Ryzhikov" usually are born with red hair, pale skin and freckles, which cover not only their face, but also the body. Some argue that the owners of the hair color - it is very insidious, but in spite of this, and even a little sexy supernatural beings on this planet. Auburn - is the rarest hair color in the world, and only two percent of the world's population was lucky to be born with red hair.

Not long ago, the Internet was even a rumor (false, of course), that red hair simply disappear. Thanks to one of the episodes of "South Park", saying that the red does not have a soul, has become quite popular. Born "false flax" - it's not a curse, and, one might even say, superpower. Today we have prepared for you some very exciting facts about the red-haired people.

People with red hair in most cases, the left-hander

It has been proven that people are born with red hair, in most cases, be left-handed, but given the limitations of this research, it can not be said for sure. A common trend to the fact that red hair are often left-handed people, mainly due to the presence of these recessive gene specific. Recessive genes - it is genes that are masked by dominant genes. To tag was expressed in a person specified by a recessive gene, it is necessary that this gene is transferred to it from both parents. Red hair is usually "are included" a recessive gene MC1R. To the baby was born red, both parents must be carriers of the MC1R gene. People are born left-handed, too, due to a recessive gene, and 10-12 percent of people around the world are its carriers. Since the recessive traits are often transmitted in pairs, this may explain why so many red-haired people are left-handed.

"false flax" for life

Eumelanin and pheomelanin - two pigment found in the hair shaft, the hair color and all have a combination of these two pigments. The more eumelanin in the hair, the more they will be darker and if it prevails pheomelanin, they will be lighter. We redheads are very few eumelanin in the hair. As soon as people get older, the hair follicles stop producing pigment. Hair color will be gray when all the follicles completely lose its color. Red hair retain its natural color longer than other colors, however, this does not mean that the "false flax" do not need to worry about gray hair. Red hair can fade with time. Their shade will vary from copper and faded to silver-white.

They feel pain differently

It seems that red-haired people are more sensitive to certain types of pain, and less sensitive to others. Many studies have been conducted to show that redheads respond to pain differently than people with other hair colors. They are more sensitive to cold weather, suffer more from tooth pain and are at greater risk of developing multiple sclerosis, and endometriosis. Red is much worse than struggling with the pain that is associated with the skin. A study conducted by a team from the University of Louisville, found that red-haired people actually require 19 percent more likely to make the anesthetic than dark-haired people. They also found that the local anesthetic lidocaine is less effective for "mushrooms". A study conducted by a behavioral neuroscientist at McGill University Jeffrey Graves, found that men with the red hair color need less morphine to relieve the pain, and women - on the contrary. So, the fact remains that "mushrooms" feel pain differently.

In the red-haired women sex is more often (and better)

"Red just fire! In bed," and this statement is scientifically proven. Sexologist Hamburg Dr. Werner Habermehl studied the sex lives of hundreds of German women and then compared the metrics based on their hair color. In the end, he concluded that the sexual life of women redheads much more active than in those with other hair color. Probably each of us knows that the people there is a statement saying that sex with blondes are much brighter and more colorful, and so, this belief may be false. Based on some research, orgasm in women with natural red hair color is much brighter than the owners of any other color. A study conducted on "Match.com", showed that single women with red hair orgasm is much brighter and stronger than blondes. Just remember that red hair is always exciting, but just imagine how beautiful red hair will look pale skin, but it is not loud.
