It dont matter to me what nationality anyone is,I am always happy to see a fellow curly gurl,and I tell them about this website everytime too.

So no,I dont notice that about 3b girls.
But everyone is entitled to thier opinion so if thats
what you see in the area you live in,okay.

will add more curl pics soon,thx
Well I find that to be untrue. I am neither mixed race or white, or black, or middle eastern. I am full hispanic (Puerto Rican and Cuban).
Can't say I follow that 'rule' either I'm 100% English x
... my big usual smile for multicultcurly :P

3 b/c bsl length ridiculously thick brown curls with blonde highlights

I'm really like my curls but rarely wear my hair fully down as it isn't really styled and tends to go bushy

... really seeking an edgy indie style cut that suits my hair type, but wont make the move till I'm sure its right for me as I have been growing my hair to this point for so long
Well, I think in general, the races you mentioned are more likely to have curly hair in general.

But me, I'm white.
I'm 3c/4a and I'm mixed with european, middle eastern(bedouin), jewish, native american(chilean native, crow, and blackfoot), and Black. I can't say I've seen any of the groups that make my mix have 3b hair more then the others.
3c/4aMCiii normal/low porosity med elasticty

Shampoo- JC Hydrating Invigorating poo, Alaffia Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo, CV poo bars
Rinse out- Natures gate hemp, GSAS
Leave in- GDLI, Beautiful Curls Curl Activating Leave in
DT- Still working on that
Styler- Ecostyler Crystal, Queen Helene Royal Curl Creme
Sealer- castor, Shea butter,jojoba oil

I don't know how well I'll keep it up, my blog The Lions Mane
3b jewess up in here!! someone posted earlier that being a certain ethnicity perhaps increases your chances of being a curly but being a curly doesn't mean you have a specific racial/ethnic background. i think that's true. when i lived in israel, the proportion of curlies to non was gloriously high! this, of course, is purely observational and non-scientific.
Shampoo: CP princess poo, squeaky
Condish: CP junket creme; CP soulmate for protein
Styling: CP Curlz gel or KCCC; Korres bamboo creme or Kiehls formula 133 or silk groom; air dry and no color
Type: 3a or 3b, or Both! Density is medium/thick, texture is fine.
This statement is pretty ignorant. There, I said it.

I've been fighting this notion on this site for years. Any ethnicity can have 3b hair. The responses to your notion prove that point.

And I'm AA (not mixed in this generation). My girls are not either and one has 3bc and the other 3c4a. Genetics are a crapshoot.

mini-album w/ various styles for the past 10 years of natural hair:

3b Corkicelli, SL, colored, starting Henna recently
fine texture/medium porosity
Modified & Experimenting.
Low Poo: Burt Bee's Pom & Soy Shampoo on scalp only
Co Wash: VO5 Extra Volumizing Conditioner
LI: GF S&S

I think there is a grain of truth but due to the posts there are so many mixes out there you can be any race which is cool. Shows the world its harder to stereotype!

I am Italian, I have red 3b hair. I have olive skin, but am not mixed; definitely white.
My father has 3b curls And most of my Italian family has 3a/b/c hair.

Uhhhh, what is the purpose of this original post? LOLLL other than to tick me off everytime I see the most recent in 3b forum?

Ughs...

Can we move it to the "Hall of Shame?"
  • 3c & 3b, Normal Porosity, Very Very Coarse and Protein Sensitive
  • Shampoo: Deva Curl No Poo, Kinky Curly Come Clean
  • Conditioner: Deva Curl One, Castor Oil,
  • Styling: Expiramenting with FSG

"Time to own this poodle!!!"
I have 3b/3c combination hair. I'm Jewish and Latina. My older daughter is Jewish/Latina, Slovenian, and some other European ethncities and is 3a/3b. My second daughter is all of the same ethnicities and is type 2a.
I've been following this thread for a while. I'm 3b and my ethnic heritage is Swedish-Italian-English-Scotch-Irish-French....I think that's it! My Mom who was Swedish/French, had curly hair like mine. But then again my Italian/everything else Dad has curly hair as well. So either way I was destined to be a curly girl! But my sister had straight as a board hair. Then again, we always told her she was the milkman's kid! Hee, hee! I'm enjoying reading about all the different backgrounds of us all. So interesting how we all come to be!
Both of my parents are Acadian French, neither of them have curly hair, but I have majorly thick hair filled with 3b curls.

I don't think that it's true that certain ethnic backgrounds make someone more prone to having 3b curls -- but I do think that a lot of people think so... I'm about as white as white can be, blonde hair, green eyes, and I still have people ask or just assume that I'm mixed. It doesn't bother me, but I think it's funny
