I don't know about "most", but I'm Jewish (East European) and am a 3b. It's the "family hair"- everyone on my Dad's side has the same thick curly hair, and most of my cousins have it straightened. My Grandmother despairs everytime another curly head bites the dust- she looks at it as though they're betraying the family legacy! :P

I saw this post and thought it was interesting. I usually post in a 3C forum, but I'm mixed. I see quite a few people who have similar hair as me here, but I think I'm more 3C. I'm mixed... my mother is black(french & N.American heritage) and my father is white (Irish & German heritage). I've got golden--ish brown curly hair. The Irish side is quite dominant.

[/QUOTE]Of course it's true! For example, how many pure asian girls do you know who have curly hair? I know none. It's all about genetics, I know, shocking! Curly genes are more common in certain ethnicities. It s not a stereotype or generalization, it's a scientific fact.[/QUOTE]
^ (i hope I got the quote thing right, I hardly post on this website)


my whole family are pure south indians,& we all have curly/wavy hair !
& me, my mum and my baby brother have 3b curly hair.

my dad and my 2 sisters have 2b wavy hair.
actually, I think everyone on my dad's side has 2b hair,
and only just one more 3b on my mum's side; my grandma.

pure asians can have curly hair too! ;D
also, i'm in India , for the first time, on holiday.
I noticed almost everyone here has 2a/b/3a hair.
I saw a few 3b girls too, too bad everyone here brushes out their hair dry

p.s. the sun & humidity is killingggg me. I think I may die soon.
holy crap.

British/Norwegian 3B here... although I get the Russian/Jew question a lot, so I kind of get what you're saying.

I think this an interesting observation. I am a mix but I am multiracial. My father is East Indian and my mother is a combination of mostly American Indian and French. On the French side is where the curly hair came from. My maternal grandmother was from Lousiana. She was mostly French but had some African American in her background. But I also think my father has some curly heads in his family as well. I am about 95% of races that would normaly have straight hair, but with genes you never know. I would say it is probably more common that mixed race and middle easterners have curly hair, but there are still a lot of other people that fit the 3b description as well. Good point though!

How funny?! I keep getting asked if I am mixed or African American.

I am Italian (mother) and Irish (father)--caucasion with blue eyes with 3c curls. Curls came from my father and thickness came from my mother. It all adds up to BIG hair

Nope, I'm completely white. Although many people have assumed me to be mixed based on my hair alone.........................

I'm a bit of a mutt (mostly German, but also Russian, English, Irish, and Blackfoot Native American thrown in WAY back there - like 8 gens!), and I have 3b. I keep getting asked if I'm mixed though (like black/white mixed).

No, not really. I have 3b hair, and I'm African American. Well, except my great-grandmother was Cherokee. Don't know if that counts.
