Hey all, not sure if this is the right spot to ask but I'm inquiring about hair dying and bleaching among the germans and celts. I know the celts lime washed their hair to make it lighter. I have read that the germans used to dye there hair red but am unsure of the accuracy of this. One source from a book about the Teutobug Wald said that germans who were not naturally red haired dyed it red. Also Tacitus said the germans had feirce blue eyes and red hair. Another I remember is someone saying the caledones were red haired and they thus assumed they were related to the germans. As I understand it though the germans today seem to be more blond and the celts red. What im wondering is if there is any confusion among translations when it comes to hair color? Im somewhat confused as to the reliability of some quotes and taking descriptions from them as is. But if the germans did indeed dye their hair red, did they bleach it first as the celts did, then dye, or just apply it regardless of light or dark hair. Any quotes or imput would be greatly appreciated.
