Genes Traits You May Not Know You Have

If you’re a redhead, you didn’t just get your ginger locks from your parents—you also got this inherited trait: an ability to withstand stinging pain better than blondes and brunettes. In a series of studies, Danish researchers at Aalborg University injected subjects with capsaicin, the active component of chili, and found that redheads were less sensitive to this type of pain. Because of this, they can better tolerate spicy foods as well as the discomfort of a pinprick. Other research, however, suggests that the world’s 2 percent of redheads are more sensitive to cold and less responsive to injected forms of anesthesia. No matter the color, here are 30 tips for healthier, more attractive hair.

  1. I have a beautiful red-headed granddaughter who just turned four. I’m not sure that she is into spicy foods, but this is an interesting observation.
