What causes red hair? Nothing but a dark soul! But seriously, red hair is caused by a genetic mutation, quite possibly because they are the spawn of Satan or by conjuring the devil with evil spells and potions. If the mutation isn’t caused by that, maybe it’s their fiery temper and the ability to turn a bright, sunny, beautiful day into the darkest pit of Hell with but a mere glare from their piercing eyes that descend into the darkest recesses of their soul. But if you still feel that there is a logical, scientific explanation for the fiery redhead, the scientists from Scotland, of all places, have just the recipe, or is it broth, to explain away how red hair forms.
From the fiery pits of Mount Doom, in the Black Land of Mordor, the Dark Lord Sauron… Oops, sorry. Wrong paper. On impious wretches he shall rain, Tempests of brimstone, fire, and death…. Bugger it. Wrong book yet again. Perhaps it’s my past experiences with those of the fiery hair that have me feeling a little reluctant to talk about what causes red hair. But onward Christian soldier, marching off to war, which is what it feels like when confronting a ginger haired hothead. Well, enough of this for the time being, time to reveal the information that the more than likely red haired, evil, mad scientists from Edinborough, who have probably been consorting with the Devil to fool us all, have discovered.
