Can someone with red-green colorblindness see natural red hair?

Can someone with red-green colorblindness see natural red hair?

Perhaps: Color blindness is an abnormal condition characterized by the inability to clearly distinguish different colors of the spectrum. The difficulties can be mild to severe. It is a misleading term because people with color blindness are not blind. Rather, they tend to see colors in a limited range of hues; a rare few may not see colors at all. http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/red-green. ...Read more

Woke up this morning and I think I became red / green colorblind. Is this possible?

No: If you were color normal, and awoke with this deficiency, i would be very skeptical. This is simply not possible.

Generally, the red zone indicates a hospital visit to the ED or calling 911, and this is when you are in extreme distress and at 50% PF ...Read more

If a color blind person is red-green color blind, can they still see most shades of those colors normally?

If a color blind person is red-green color blind, can they still see most shades of those colors normally?

Altered perception: They will see shades of color in all colored objects but will but see the full range, so colors that might appear bright to you will seem attenuated to the color deficient and some colors will seem what you might term brownish. The mixture seen depends upon the depth of the color blindness in each individual. Because of this most color deficient persons adopt rather bland wardrobes. ...Read more

If you have red-green color blindness, does red look the same as green?

If you have red-green color blindness, does red look the same as green?

Somewhat: The colors in color deficiencies lose their distinctive character (technically become desaturated) so that distinctions are blurred and many greens and reds in the most common form become poorly distinct. The actual color is not know as this is a psychological phenomenon and the color deficient identify many colors the same that a 'normal' would call distinct. ...Read more
