    3 of those SNPs could not be found using the search, but among those searchable I found that I was a carrier of one of them:



    I'm assuming that's what caused my red hair?

    That's probably it. For sure you're a carrier of that one.

    BTW, the variant you carry (Ile155Thr) was also carried by one of the Mesolithic hunter-gatherers (I0013) from Motala, Sweden, from Lazaridis et al, 2013. The date range on that one was 5898-5531 BC. He belonged to y haplogroup I2a1b and mtDNA haplogroup U5a1.

    So it's been in Europe awhile.

    I haven’t taken 23andme but I did upload to yourdnaportal and they said I wasn’t a carrier for genes that cause red hair. A bit of a disappointment since my Scots-Irish grandma is a redhead and she was praying for me to have red hair.

    My British mother tests negative for every red hair SNP that I've checked. We have 0 red-haired people in our family, not even any distant cousins. A lot of blondes, however. I would assume East Anglia has the lowest red hair rates in the whole of the British isles.

    I also test negative for all SNPs (I do have the SNPs but not the risk allele), my great grandmother was redhead (her whole life) and I have more red heads in my family and I was red head till my 3rd or 4th year, which makes me wonder that it was not actually red hair but more a brown hair variant which resembles red hair.

    For the SNPs I have, I tested negative for, with the exception of one of the minor ones, where I have both positive and negative alleles. I have a ginger tint to my beard when it gets long and my sibling was sometimes mistaken as ginger around the same age you speak of. I think there may have been another red hair mutation around the Middle East, as is seen in Samaritans.

    Is it possible there are more SNPs which are responsible for red hair but we don't know about yet?

    I'm negative for Rs1805008. My dad is negative for Rs1805008 and two other SNPs. However, his brother has red hair and his dad had red hair. He must be a carrier for one of the red hair SNPs since his dad had red hair.

    That's what I'm wondering about.
