Do People With Red Hair Have Red Pubes (Not Always)

Some people with red hair loath this question. They know that probably half of the people they meet, think about whether they have red pubes.

Now I know this isn’t fair and they can’t to much about it, but most of us (including me) are just curious! It isn’t out of anything else but curiosity that people want to know if people with red hair have red pubes.

So, The advice is probably to not ask any guy or girl with red hair this question… It is safer to just look up the answer online!

Luckily I have a friend who has naturally red hair and she knows other people who also have red hair. Since I have a great connection with her I thought I would ask her about it.

One night we were watching tv at her place and we were watching a quiz. The quiz show had a question about at which age pubic hair set in… We started discussing it and that was when the question popped in my head! I bluntly asked her and this is the reaction she gave me.

do people with red hair have red pubes?

She said that I wasn’t the first to ask her that! She luckily also said that she didn’t mind answering because she knew a lot of people had this question. Now of course she wouldn’t answer a stranger on the streets, but if a friend with genuine interest asked her, she answered the question.

So, do people with red hair have red pubes?  She told me that she indeed also had red pubes. So she had a full head of red hair and matching red pubic hair. She said she liked it! She found it great it matched and the boyfriends that she was with or had ever had, also found it great!

But, she said, that I have red hair and red pubes do not mean that everyone with red hair has it.

Some do and some don’t it all depends on one’s genetics. She told me that a friend of hers (also ginger) told her that her mom was also a redhead but that she didn’t have red pubic hair. Instead, she had a dark brown color. It all depends on genetics. 

How common is red pubic hair

The color of the pubic hair almost always is the same as the hair you have on your head (or your eyebrows which seems a good indicator). But as you just read, this is not always entirely the case. It all depends on genetics so it can be that the hair on the head does not match the color of the pubes.

But is red pubic hair common?

Just for this question, I’m going to assume that in most cases it is true that gingers have red pubic hair. 

Now only 2% of the entire population on earth have red hair. So that automatically means that having red pubic hair is not that common! 

So if you are someone with red hair and red pubic hair, or if you have a relationship with a man or woman who has this… Cherish them! They represent only a small amount of people on earth!

Do pubes match hair color?

No pubes and your hair color do not always match. Upon further studying up about the subject I found that it doesn’t depend on the color of the hair on your head. Often it does match, but this doesn’t mean that it always matches.

The color of your hair is determined by the amount of melanin in each of your hairs. This can be different in different parts of your body so that is why it not always matches. The pigment substance (melanin) can just differ between your head and your pubes.

As I said earlier: the color of your pubic hair is often close to your eyebrows (if those are your natural color of course).

What cultures have red hair?

What if you want to go and find someone with red hair and red pubic hair just because you find it so fantastic! Where do you need to go?

The frequency of people with red hair is the highest in Ireland. 10 to 30% of its people have red hair. Scotlands comes in at a good second place with 10 to 25% of people with red hair. And of course, you might’ve guessed it… The third place is for Wales with 10 to 15% of the people with red hair!

So, did you always fancy vacation to the United Kingdom? You now have a great excuse!

Final Thoughts

The first thing that popped into my head after I asked the question to my friend was “why did I ask her that question!” After she wasn’t going crazy on me and just explained it, I felt relieved and was happy I finally knew! I hope you just had such a moment! Now you know and you can go on with your life :). Just for the last time so that you never forget it: People with red hair often have red pubic hair, but this doesn’t need to be the case.
