Quite frankly I believe we're a mixture of all racial/ethnic backgrounds so I don't concern myself with such questions.

I'm mixed, but you would never know it just by the color of my skin. Most people just assume I'm 100% white. Little do they know.

I am not mixed but I have 3b hair that I am just now realizing I have. I big chopped July 24th. My daughter is mixed and has 3b hair which I thought was a combo of mine and her father's hair. I big chopped for her because she hated her hair....everyone around her had straight hair. I didn't want her to relax her hair so I promised her I would cut my hair if she gave her hair a chance. I was quite shocked to see the curls in my hair (because I had asked my mom about my childhood texture and she had told me it was hard to comb/manage). My daughter is 11. If it hadn't been for her I would never have been able to free myself from the bondage of a relaxer. She now loves her hair because she can now identify with someone who has hair like hers.

As much as I detest hair profiling, this sort of hair is also of a similar frequency to Spain in countries such as Morocco and Turkey, and these are countries whose population is relatively homogeneous. Of course, countries like Cuba or Colombia have a high incidence of "type 3b" haired people due to the mixed ancestry but this type of hair is not only for those of mixed race.

In fact, the mediterranean beauty prototype is that of dark curly hair, big dark sensual eyes and olive-coloured skin.

I would just like to point out that technically Spanish people are a mixed raise, that of the Celtic and African. (Sorry, the historian in me coming out.)

I am very multi racial and my sister is the same as myself
Yet her hair is the opposite to mine .inevery race you can find
Curly an straight .yes even in Asians hence wher
Japanese straighteners came from so I can't really say I agree
With your statement

Many asians have hair that is dry and coarse {think relaxed hair w/o product and blowdried} thats why they have japanese straighteners. Race has nothing to do with genetics. example of what i mean? Black people not being able to grow long hair, all white people have silky straight fine hair u guys get the picture. Btw im black up to 4 generations on mom side and likewise on my dada and i have 3b hair

I'm mixed with mostly Cambodian & Italian, a little Chinese. My hair has a mixture of everything I'm mixed with! My hair is 3b/3c, my hair is thin like most Italians I know, but yet, strong & resistant to chemicals like Asian hair. It's so curly & unruly but I LOVE it! Took me a while to appreciate it because I didn't know how to take care of my hair. Now, I can't imagine ever picking up my hair straightener again! Which kind of sucks, because before I appreciated my hair, it took me 45 minutes to straighten it! I had to have a good straightener.. My hair straightener is $150, which is the sucky part!

But heeeeyyyy. My curls are already coming back after barely a week of CG method! 😊

Yea mixed girls tend to have 3b hair but a lot of other ethnicities can have 3b hair too.

I'm mixed like really mixed lol. I have african, scottish(white), indian, spanish and native ameri-indian. This is just too much work to say so when people ask me I usually just say black because that's the side I relate most with. Little off topic their but yea.

3b here (obvi)...mixed w/ Arab and African (Kenya and Lesotho) backgrounds. I've noticed this observation to be pretty dead on. Though a lot of my full Latina friends are 3b/c as well

I'm middle eastern but most of my family and other middle eastern girls I know have beautiful shiny dark wavy hair. I had that hair until I reached puberty. UGH, I know I should embrace my curls but I really think I got the short end of the stick

I'm 3b and I am about as white as they come. Scottish, French, German and English. That being said, I get told I have hair like ethnic people all the time.

Wink My Family has all hair types

I hadn't come to the same conclusion. My family has a person representing each hair type and we have literally been having "mixed" relationships and children for many generations. My grandmother has straight hair. I have a mix of 3b, 3c and 4a. I don't know why I am only allowed to choose one grade of hair on this site because many in my family have a mix of curl patterns. I've talked about the varying grades of hair in my family here My Royal Family 4: Quest For A Good Hair Day I understand your observation but I don't actually see 3b hair as the standard hair type. To me curls are as different as finger prints.

I love to see how proud most of us are of our ethnic identity. I have to laugh though, when people say "I'm 100%" this or that. None of us are 100% anything. Races and ethicities have been mixing all over the globe since the dawn of humanity.
