Redheads' contributions to all aspects of life isn't always acknowledged. See who is Redhead and Proud and famous.
 
 

 

A true Redhead is something to be Proud of because of how rare it is. Only in about 2% of the world's population can you find people with natural red hair. For this reason it’s important to have pride in your reddish locks, but you should also take care of your hair as well. Using the right hair products can really make that red shine through and certainly make non-redheads jealous. Sure one may be able to buy red hair dye from a box or spend hours at a salon having their hair colored but being a true Redhead takes much more than that!
