i have boy/girl twins and my daughter has auburn colored hair and my sone is a redhead.. his is definitely more red in the sunlight than indoors.. when hes inside its more a strawberry blonde but the red is starting to get more intense as hes getting older.. they are almost 1 now..

as far as tempers go my son is soo laid back where as my daughter is very demanding and loves to throw temper tantrums if she doesnt get her way...

my 3 year old daughter has hair like that, the key to telling if the hair will change to straight blonde or stay red is to look at the eye brows. my daughter has fire red eye brows, so it safe to say she will have red hair for the rest of her life unless she is stupid and dyes it

My daughter is the same way, indoors it looks just like a light brown, but get her out in the sun and it looks red. My hair was the same way when I was a baby, now my hair is medium/dark brown but in the summer it gets these awesome red highlights and turns kind of auburnish.

My nephew was born with red hair, like carrot top red, but when he was born it looks brown, now it's so red it's almost orange!!!

Both of my kids are redheads, now my son who is three looked red anywhere and now that hes older and its longer it is still very red. My 3 month olds only looks red in the sun or certain types of lights.

My son was born with brown hair. After a few months his hair turned lighter brown but more blonde. In the light it looked red. He's about to be 3 and I don't see much red in it any more. His Dad has brown hair and his hair did the same as my son's when he was small. My husband works out in the sun and around welding. Now his hair is getting highlights of that red it had in it before. This happens every summer.

I have a redhead, it's more strawberry but it always looks red, but EXTREMELY red in the sun. I can't say for everyone, but I know she will stay a redhead for the fact that she has red eyelashes/eyebrows.

My son was born with red hair, but it fell out and came back in competely white! It's getting a little more blonde now, and my hair was the same when I was a baby. Mine is naturally strawberry blonde now, my friends argue sometimes over it, half saying it's blonde, and half saying its red. So I expect my son's hair will change again, as mine (& my husbands!) did.

Sounds like my oldest daughter. Always had a blondish color but in brightness or she wore yellow it was red...We called it Strawberry blond. Now her hair is a dirty blond.

It may or may not. My daughter was born with blondish red hair that looks more red in the sun. She still has the red hues and is almost 4 now.
I myself was born with reddish blond hair, but it turned blonde then dirty blonde (I colour it now).
I think my daughters was more red than mine and thats why she stayed a red head.

Sounds exactly like my daughter. I can look at her right now and her hair looks blondish brown, but as soon as the sun hits it, it's red. I'm not sure if it'll change. No one else in our family has red hair except my father-in-law.
