What hair color do most Celiacs have? A whole bunch of Red Heads claim to be related to me,and I think they assume that if I'm a Celiac , I must be related to their Red Hair or something.I think they are crazy-I really do. Most Celiacs are brown haired aren't they? Or are they mostly red haired? Red Hair is rare no matter what the condition, so it's not like most people have red hair anyway-I think they are begging for us to be in their hair color group.Red Haired people want brown Haired Celiacs? Am I right,because we're the cool ones.

I'm a redhead! But the other celiacs I know are 2 blondes and 3 brunettes. It would be interesting to know if there's a correlation.

I have eight different shades of brown that gets blond streaks in the sun. My hair is very indecisive. But I have a blond friend and a few brunette acquaintances with Celiac, or some level of gluten intolerance.

I have naturally light brown hair, but I use henna to make it a lovely auburn. I add lots of honey to make it a nice autumn leaf color. I call it "burnt pumpkin". :D
