"Kissed by the sun", "shameless redheads", "children of the sun" - no matter how they call the owners of fiery hair, and these are only the most harmless nicknames … Redheads are always in the spotlight, which is not surprising, because it is difficult not to notice them in crowd. At all times, they were not indifferent attitude. Either they were afraid and burned at the stake, then red hair became fashionable, and women went to various tricks in order to achieve the desired result. In the modern world, there is no prejudice towards the "children of the sun", and they do not experience difficulties in society, unlike their distant ancestors. Women are happy to dye their hair red, which indescribably pleases the strong half of humanity.
Many great minds of the planet are trying to unravel the history of the appearance of the "red" gene. Currently, scientists have put forward a hypothesis that the first owners of red hair were Neanderthals, and thismeans that the gene responsible for colorful hair is over 50,000 years old. Of course, the Neanderthals disappeared as a species long ago, but the gene was inherited by the modern Homo sapiens species. Scotland and Ireland are leaders in the number of red-haired people, which they are very proud of. They are the descendants of the ancient Celts, with a strong temper and absolute fearlessness.
Another version of the appearance of people with red hair is just cosmic! There is a hypothesis that they arrived from another planet or from a parallel world. Many red-haired people had supernatural powers - they healed people, foresaw the future or influenced the weather. Their skin is more sensitive to ultraviolet rays, as it does not produce enough melanin, which, according to ufologists, is proof of their extraterrestrial origin. The snow-white skin of redheads tans very badly or simply burns. In addition, red-haired people have a very low pain threshold and an increased risk of developing allergies.
Witches and Courtesans
Sunny people were not always and everywhere friendly and hospitable. Many people remember from school history lessons about the Middle Ages and the frightening Holy Inquisition, whose sophisticated tortures still cause horror and make the blood run cold. Red-haired beauties were considered the main minions of Satan, more often than others they were accused of witchcraft, tortured and burned at the stake. In ancient Egypt, "solar" people were sacrificed to the god of the sun, begging him for a good harvest. Arabs toored-haired people were treated in a special way, considering them the descendants of a woman who sinned with an insidious genie-spirit created from fire. Jinn were treacherous traitors, for which they were sent to earth by the great Allah. Only in Scotland, women with red hair were considered fairies, not deprived of magical abilities.
Standards of beauty
Only in the Renaissance, the owners of fiery hair were left alone, and they took pride of place in society. Red-haired women were considered the standard of beauty, their portraits were painted by great artists, famous writers and poets of the Renaissance sang in verse and ballads. Many single women, trying to attract the attention of men, dyed their hair with henna, achieving the desired redhead. This led to the fact that already in the Enlightenment, all redheads were considered women of easy virtue. Everything returned to normal by the end of the second millennium, sunny beauties returned a decent attitude and a high position in society.
The owners of bright hair color are also characterized by brightness of character. These temperamental people always go ahead to their goal, they are optimistic and eccentric.
