MC1R protein's major job is to turn red pigments into brown pigments. This means that everyone makes red pigments in their hair. Only people who have versions of MC1R protein that do not make brown pigments build up the red pigment, and have red hair. Since we have two copies for most of our genes--one from mom and one from dad, both copies of your MC1R gene need to be the red hair versions (two r alleles) to become a redhead. www.myredhairgene... photo by Serge Ratnikov
Betty, Betty, Betty! If you blow your head off over your Bad Hair Day, you'll have to settle for a closed casket. You don't want to disappoint your mourners, do you? Now THAT would be reason enough to blow that pretty little head off. A VERY SICK ADVERTISING. MARIA S. DAUGBJERG. OR VERY DARK HUMOR.
