It's pretty much unheard of. Hubby gets ALOT of comments and complements on his hair because it is so unusual of someone of his pale complexion to have such hair. That's what I was getting at. Yes, race are not reserved to a certain hair type. My hubby is living proof of that. But stereotypes ring true sometimes, and here in Australia, people with his kind of curls are 99% of the time, very dark. We've only seen one other person who was white with his hair, and they had African descendants way back a few generations. Maybe in other countries its more common. Not here.

Thanks for the avocado tip, ill definitely give it a try. He isn't interested in getting it long. It seems to grow pretty well on its own anyway. But he was hoping to get it healthier. Moisturized. Maybe a little softer??

Thanks again.
Deep conditioning is a great way to soften up your hair. Get Greek yogurt and put in castor, olive, and coconut oil along with a rinse out conditioner.
Put it in your husband's hair and leave him under a hooded dryer for 30-60 mins. If you don't have a hooded dryer then a shower cap on his head then a plastic bag over the shower cap. Use a blow dryer between the plastic bag because it will heat up the hair cuticles keeping them moisturized and soft.
