I've got a question. Why do people say "ginger hair" instead of light brown/orange/ yellow hair? Does "ginger" have a special meaning in referring something?

Hello Rafaela1,

Ginger does not have any special meaning. It's simply another way to say red hair.

Red hair can be dyed or it can be natural, in which case we can also say ginger.

Hi, I'm short, slim and beautiful... I have dark curly hair, dark eyes, I'm 30 years old, I'm older than my sister, she's beautiful, tall and thin, her hair is darker and longer than mine.

I'm a middle age person, like I am 31 years old. I'm neither short or tall, I'm 180cm tall. Due to my genetic (or my stress) I've no more hairs, but at the origin I had dark hair. I like to consider me as handsome person, like everybody should do, I think. I won't talk about my weight because it's not a very attractive point for me, but I don't feel too fat, so that's ok.
