Fun Fact: Your Redheaded Friend Will Be the Last to Go Grey

Confirmed: Redheads are basically secret superheroes. Not only is the colour the rarest in the world (when it’s natural, that is), but the genetics of having fiery hair mean all sorts of other things too: like, for example, requiring more anesthesia than others in medical situations, and being able to better detect changes in temperature. (Say what?)

Get schooled by the video above as BuzzFeed gives the lowdown on all things ginger. If only we could pick up some of these amazing traits with just a trip to the salon…

Another fun fact: Red is one of the hardest colours to maintain. If your scarlet locks are faux, keep them looking vibrant with Davines’ Alchemic Red Conditioner ($20).
