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

I am blonde--but had alot of reddish tones when I was young...Some grey hair--so I use hair dye to match my regular color now. Although I am not dx with Celiac--I have many issues (past and present) that Celiacs also have. Our "sensitive" nature to the world around us maybe? :D

Light brown/dirty blond but my dad is (was) a redhead.

How many of us have relatives with red hair?
