Redhead Turning Blonde?

Redhead Turning Blonde?
Last week, the worst thing ever happened to me: I was called blonde. Let me set the stage for you: My co-worker used the phrase “redheaded stepchild” and I (somewhat jokingly) called him out on it for being offensive. Then he apologized and said he forgot he was talking to. Which led him into saying... Read more »

Curly Girl Handbook Review

Curly Girl Handbook Review
As so many of you already know, i am a curly hair supremacist. Like many of the self-loathing (Hitler’s grandmother was a Jew, which by his very own concentration camp-worthy definition meant he was a Jew), I came to this conclusion only after years upon years of being bullied for my frizz and spending hours...

Lime Juice Can Cause Serious Sunburns

Thought this was worth sharing as I — and I am sure many of you — was unaware how dangerous lime juice could be to our pale skin. If you’re handling limes or lime juice while before/during lots of sun exposure, be very, very careful. You do not want to end up with 3rd degree... Read more »

On Redheads

A few song lyrics about redheads by my Israeli friend (edited for grammar/spelling by me): “There is blonde like the sun/ And black like the night/ But only a redhead/ Describes the sunset right”

What should I have said?

What should I have said?
The other day, I was minding my own ginger-y business and walking down the street sans hat. I tell you that because after this incident, I’ve decided I should now always make sure to wear a hat to disguise my gingerness as much as possible. And that’s because, as I was crossing State Street, a... Read more »

Confessions of a Faux Redhead

Confessions of a Faux Redhead
An anonymous person submitted the following to me to post, so I figured I’d indulge her: “My name is Georgia and I’m a fake. Despite having both maternal and paternal aunts with red hair, I didn’t make the cut and was born with nondescript no-color brown hair that clung to my head like a scraggly... Read more »

Where Did Redheads Come From?

In case you haven’t heard, scientists have “discovered” that red hair became an evolution thing when humans moved out of Africa 50,000 years ago. Homo sapiens began to become redheads to adapt to colder/darker climates where we wouldn’t get as much Vitamin D. And now our pale skin makes us not need as much Vitamin... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
