My dad was a blonde and I'm sure that's where my celiac disease came from. He died at 38 from lung cancer. I'm dark blonde with grey hair in front, I'm 50.

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



how do you do that??? and where do you buy it?? I mean do you add regular honey to regular henna??!!! I'm gonna try that!

I pretty much had white hair as a child, turned blonde, then dark blonde. Now I am dark blonde with red and light blonde streaks - I do not dye my hair lol. Least I get the streaks for free =P hehehehe.

My dad and aunt have red hair, my aunt has celiac and I am 100% positive my dad had it too

I'm a legitimate light strawberry blonde.
All my many celiac relatives are all solid brunettes though. 10 of those at last count. (I guess I was the milk-man's daughter)

As a child, my hair was sort of an honey blonde, and as I got older, it changed to a golden brown. It's a rich brown now, but I get lots of those golden and honey highlights in the summer when I'm out in the sun. I started getting gray hairs when I was 18! More keep coming every day. I notice them because they're like dog hairs (kinky and wiry and they stick out) but others don't notice them because my hair has so many natural highlights.

My mother is celiac and has dark brown hair (with lots of gray, but shhh that's a secret, she dyes it) but is not of Irish ancestry--she's Polish and Romanian.

I have medium to dark brown hair - was blond as a kid. I started to get grays very early. Now I have a problem that every time I dye my hair brown to cover the grays it turns red, no matter how much ash is used. Interesting article on the redhead connection.

Yep, I'm also a redhead. Red hair is recessive, and so is celiac. I wonder if they're linked somehow in a way we haven't discovered yet.

Or, as someoene suggested above, could just be the gene pool.

Just a FYI - Celiac is not a recessive trait. Not sure about red hair as what may be percieved as red may actually be blond or brown genetically?

Good point. The other sources I read were probably wrong.

As for being a redhead, I'm talking about true red hair: http://genetics.thetech.org/ask/ask44
