im mixed half black and half Japanese
~im 1/2 black & 1/2 Japanese = frizzy, curly hair. ive had that from birth up until 6th gr. when a lady offered to Japanese straight perm my hair for free, of course i couldnt say "no" ! i was getting it done for 3 years( about 2-3x per year) until i came to my senses and decided to let my curly roots grow out-that took 2 yrs- on 8/24/2009 i finally cut my hair. Now its short and curly. "loving it" ~
i noticed something about 3b girls most of them belong to a mixed race or they r middle easterns(jews,arab etc)
did anyone noticed that too?

However, we need to keep in mind that the world has been mixing for thousands of years and continues to do so. Terms like "White", "Puerto Rican", "Black", "Mixed", etc are modern terms but we are not divorced from our histories.

Sorry for major guano but I had to say it LOL

My father is super white guy, 6'6" freckles and super dark brown CURLY 3b/3c hair. He is of Welsh descent. So, I am Welsh/English and 1/4 sicilian. But my curlies are from the Welsh side, the sicilian side have slight waves.

I am seeing a common celtic thread... or two.
3a, thin, growing out as far as i can before i go insane and chop it!

Co-Wash: Cure Care
Conditioner: EVOO hot oil from the kitchen
DT: Joico K Pak
Stylers: CG Mousse of some sort, usually HE or Clairol 3-in-1 if I can find it!

Then Diffuse until about 75% dry, then air dry the rest of the way**

Well, I'm Jewish, so I fit that mold. But I know a lot of Jews that don't.

I am seeing an interesting trend, though- a lot of people of Irish/Scots/English/Welsh descent with 3b hair have spoken up. It makes me wonder which group of raiders had the curly gene (goths, visigoths, vikings, saxons, normans, etc...).
CG: 9/4/09

3a and 3b/F/ii


Condish: CJ Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner
Shampoo (Sulfate-free): Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat (use 1-2x/week)
Styling Product: HETT mousse

TRYING to grow it out- maybe softer water and going almost strictly CG will help!

I'm half Native American (Lakota Sioux) and half Romany (Romanian Gypsy). I am the only person on either side of my family to have curly hair that anyone knows of. I don't think it's the mix because my brother has straight black hair and my sister has very dark brown 2a hair.

I can see the 'Celtic Connection' - My husband is Celtic (Irish) and his whole family has red or dark brown curly hair.
