I always wondered how DD ended up with red hair considering both of us have dark brown hair?
I think you can carry the red hair gene even if your hair is not red as it is a recessive gene?
I can't wait to see if my Bub is a redhead too. My hubby is a redhead (bright orange as a kid, quite a bit darker now but still red) and there are a lot of redheads in my mums side of the family too. I'm brunette and it does seem to be dominent in my dads family (and hubbies dads family too) so I guess its a coin flip at the moment. Although if we get a blonde that will be a shock (only my uncle and brother are blondes, and a cousin of DH as well so there might be a small chance of it happening).
I'm a brunette, DH is a ginger. Hoping for a ginger but I don't think there are any on my side of the family.
Yeah you can definitely carry it, but I didn't think everyone did. The gene is split into three different types i think.
dd1 flaming red
ds1 strawberry when a baby now a deep auburn/brown
dd2 flaming red
ds2 he is my blondie
so 3 out of 4 here.
