Contrary to popular belief, we don't all look alike.

2. Your friends ridicule you when you return from a tropical vacation without a tan.

Just FYI, "tanned ginger" - oxymoron.

3. You struggle to find a patch of shade while your friends frolic in the sun.

6. You get blamed for arbitrary things simply because you have red hair.

7. You can't wear certain colours because they will clash with your hair.

Yes, that is SPF 100+. If you're not a ginger, you probs didn't know that even existed.

12. The authenticity of your hair colour is constantly being questioned.

BLOODY YES, you can't buy a colour this fab at the hair salon honey.

13. You hang out with another redheaded and people automatically assume you're twins.
