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 is not a stereotype or generalization, it's a scientific fact.

Wink Whitey McWhiterson, here.

My entire family has 3b curls. My two half brothers are half Mexican and they also inherited the 3b's from my white mother, but their hair is much darker than mine. I wish I had their color. I don't believe curls discriminate, some of us are just luckier than others.

I am Irish/Spanish/Costa Rican/British, and I have 3b curls. My mother has coarse, thick, 2c hair and my father has fine, thin, 3b hair... guess I got a mixture - fine, thick 3b hair.

Wink Not True!

I'm African American, all African American on both sides (though of distant Indian descent, though so are many blacks), and I have 3b hair! It's generally pretty silky, with a wide but not too large "s" shaped curl pattern. When my hair starts to dry it actually tends to straighten out and appear blowdried! I actually know a lot of African American women with hair like mine, but my hair was not always like this. I used to have extremely coarse hair, but not exactly nappy. My amazing hair dresser was able to transform the texture, grade, and type of my hair, which is why it is the way it is today. Black women with good hair dressers usually have hair like ours.

Uh...my cousin is from Korea, and she said that she sees a lot of wavies and curlies running around. And why would there be a Japanese straightening technique if there were no need for it in Japan? Just saying.

I think the call it Japanese because many Japanese women have straight hair. So if you use it your hair will look like their hair;

I'm pretty sure it was invented in Japan. It's called Yuko.

I'm bi-racial. My mother's Filipino and my father's African American, though of course his grandmother was Cherokee. So yeah, ha.

Hahahaha....
See, I am a jew, but that's not where my curls come from. That side of the family has wavy hair. I get my curls from my dad, who is about as white as it gets. French, Irish, and "Prussian." Prussia hasn't existed for a long time, so that doesn't really make sense to me. PLUS he's mentally ill, so you can't really trust things he says.
And now that I think of it, the Jewish side is pretty white too. We're Ashkenazi, so our Jewishness is through the great white north. :P

My curls and hair texture come from an ethnic cocktail of Irish, German and Cherokee.

This has never occurred to me before, I see an equal amount of all races and ethnicities (including hair colors) with pretty much every variety of hair texture available. I know Asian girls with curly hair and ones with straight hair, and the same with Indian friends, Jewish friends, and blond friends and everyone in between.

Interestingly though, I get asked if I am Jewish a lot. I am Roman Catholic and Scandinavian, but I have 2c-3a curls (not even the curliest of hair, either). It is interesting how while one hair type or color may be associated with a trait about your background, they probably apply to only half of us!

i'm biracial, white (british) and black (jamaican and anguillian). i reckon i'm a mix of 3b and 3c. i have blonde hair though which is quite unusual for my mix.. i used to hate it and dyed my hair black from the age of 13, the past year or so i've been learning to embrace it though, lol.

a funny story; i had a friend in school who's parents were indian, she had dead straight hair all the way down her back. sadly she was diagnosed with leukemia and had to have chemotherapy, she made a complete recovery but her hair grew back really, really curly! i mean, at least a 3b! it was so strange, but she loved it.

I think the original poster got the point, but I'll join in, haha. My heritage is English, German, and Czech and I have 3b hair. You can check out my pictures in my signature's link.

Peace.
