|MadSci Network: Genetics|
Hello Jennifer! Red hair inheritance is a common question here on Mad Sci. I looked around and just as you suspected, the genetics behind being a red-head is complex. The general census is that both sides of the family need to have some history of red-hair. Below is a list of various comments on the genetics on red hair. I hope they will help you to better understand your chances of having red-haired children... or grandchildren ;) From Carolyn Pettibone (general answer):890238897.Ge^ From Michael Onken (personal answer):828205743.Ge From Neil Saunders (mathematical answer):958352577.Ge Thanks for your question!
