I was born in the Netherlands and my parents are both from Suriname (South America, above Brazil) My mom's background is White/Black/Asian and my dad's back ground is Native American and I still manage to get curly hair :P
wow, lots of Trinis on here!
My mom's from Trindad and is mostly east Indian, with a bit of black, Arawak, Spanish, and Portuguese (and a bunch of other things, but these are what she mostly is!).
My dad's American and is mostly black, with a good amount of Cherokee, Blackfoot, Dutch, and Cuban.
All of my sisters came out with different hair: my older sister has bone straight hair, I have hair that's in between 3b and 3c, and my little sister has hair that's in between 3c and 4a. It's very interesting!
I'm new on this topic, so I thought, maybe it's nice to post my first post here.
I'm from The Netherlands and I have Egyptian and Dutch blood. When I was young I had really tight curls, later had waves (but that can be because of the brushing) and since I'm more looking after my hair and have layers, my curls have started to come back. I only use naturally products (mainly Lush).
I'm Honduran, and both my parents are Honduran, but my mom is part German and Nicaraguan and my dad is part British! My hair is 3a with some 2c.
So glad to see a considerable Latin community xD

My family history is Puerto Rican (paternal grandmother history goes to the Taino Indians). My mother believes there may be European in her paternal side as she doesn't know her father, but to our knowledge, we are pure PR. Still have extended family in Ponce and Vega Alta.

Born and raised in Canada, to be specific Mississauga Ontario.
Im mixed with East Indian, West Indian and Irish and a bit of Brazilian blood. I learn new things about my family all the time. Being from a family that is so mixed and that lives almost everywhere in the world is great!
My heritage is a mix of everything:
My father was half japanese and half black (he looked like if he had none of the black though, except for the muscular built and height) he was like a tall japanese man.
My mother is half spanish - half black, she's very dark skinned with almost straight hair.
and I'm a mix of all that, i think I have 3b/3a hair. here's a pic when I was 1 year old:
Im from Los Angeles Ca. My dad is black and my mother is creole she was born and partly raised in texas and since I can remember shes always embraced her natural black curly hair and got excitied when I decided to do the same. My texture fine like my mothers but since I chopped all my hair off its gotten a little thick but still falls in the thin section
