We all know being a redhead is the coolest. But, sometimes the world isn’t in on the secret. This week, Bustle, the popular news website, created a video about why redheads are “cooler than one thinks”. The facts being:

1. Red hair and blue eyes is the rarest combination in the world; only 1% of the world has red hair and blue eyes.


2. Redheads require larger does of anesthesia and are more resilient to painkillers.


3. Red hair is thicker than other hair colors and takes much longer to gray (or turn white).


4. Families can carry the redhead gene for generations without it showing, so there could be some redhead inside of you!


5. Redheads are better at detecting changes in temperature and more efficient at making vitamin D, so they need less sunlight.


6. Redheads are only 2% of the population and incredibly rare.
