Redheads Basically Have Genetic Superpowers, According To Science

March 12, 2019

Redheads make up less than 2% of the world’s population. They’re already rare gems as it is, so naturally they have some traits that basically make them superhuman...kind of.

They have a higher tolerance for pain.
If redheads seem tough, it’s because they are. A study found that they’re better at handling pain than other hair colors.

They have more sex.
Red-haired women have sex three times a week...that’s compared to just two times a week for blondes and brunettes.

They can make their own vitamin D.
While most of us normal humans get vitamin D while we’re exposed to sunlight, the skin of redheads can be more sensitive to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Their bodies can naturally produce vitamin D, even in low-light conditions.

They can change temperatures quickly.
Just like they can be sensitive to sunlight, their skin is also more sensitive to hot and cold changes.

Their hair doesn’t turn grey.
Red hair keeps its color a lot longer than others, so it fades into a rose-blonde color instead of your typical grey hair.

Redheads might be rare, but they’re far from boring...here’s more facts that show why redheads are the best!
