And I am often confused for Mexican, here on the mainland, too
when Googling reviews for Devacurl and how it works on Asian Curlies.
Great to discover all these other Asian Curly Girlys! .
Let me share my story, as an older woman of 47: I went my whole life thinking I had 'bad' Asian hair, getting perms even! until I was 25 and made enough money to stop going to cheap hair salons. I met a good hair stylist who told me, "why are you brushing your hair out - it's not good to brush out wavy curly hair"...oh ok. i could barely believe her.

At that time, I had wavy in the front and sides, curly in the back top only and straight at the bottom back of my hair! It was 2A, 3B, and straight! I did a nice short cut for awhile and then grew it on the long side because the weight evened out the different textures.

Also, they don't tell you that hair CAN CHANGE textures through your life and all the hormonal changes. Finally, after the birth of my daughter, after 30% of it fell out (still very thick now, actually now maneageable) and grew back, it was pretty much all curly - loose 3A curls but 2A at the back bottom. I'm pretty happy about it now. Don't fight it and like alot of things as you get older, you work with it and love it for what it is because that's all it's ever going to be , and that aint bad!
I'm 100% Chinese. My parents are both from China.
Father is Filipino, but his dad was half Chinese, half Filipino. Mom is white. Both sides have curly/wavy hair.

I'm Korean and have naturally curly hair and I found this site because I found out that Rusk no longer manufactures Curlsilk Cream. I think I'm going to cry

I need some product recommendations. I saw Miss Jessie's products, but they seem to be for African American hair only. Has anyone tried it for their non African American hair? If so, do you like it? Any other suggestions for a styling product much appreciated. Thanks.

Ask the company if they have free samples before u buy so ur not stuck with a full and very expensive bottle of something. Hopefully this helped.

i am 1/4 chinese on my mother's side - her father was 100% chinese, born in peking circa 1910. he died before i was born, so i never got to meet him, but my grandmother told me he used to say (and i paraphrase here) that some of our ancestors hooked up with arabs on the silk trail and that's why his hair was so wavy. please forgive me if that came off offensive - he was known for saying quite a few other offensive things from what i've heard, none of which i will repeat here!
i am new to the forum so i am not able to include any photos of him in this post, but i wish i could - especially ones from the 1940s-50s - he had a side part that was super slicked down, but a wave pattern is apparent.
the rest of my ancestry is caucasian - scottish/english on the maternal side, and french/canadian on the paternal side.
i have been asked "what are you" my whole life - nobody can really place "what" i am except other asians - it's always my chinese and korean friends who've asked me straight out, "are you part asian?" a lot of people have asked if i was russian.
i'm born and raised in nyc and i consider myself "a new yorker" - even though that's obviously not a race, it's what i most identify with.
i am super new to CG (in fact i don't even know what all the abbreviations on here mean yet!) and feeling totally lost. i came across this thread and thought i would say hi

yes, let's see if i have posted enough to post photos yet!
here goes:

i'm not sure what type my grandfathers hair would be but my best guess would be 2a. it's hard to tell from this photo - i thought i had a higher res image but it's not very good. i'm going to have to take a closer look at photos of him next time i am at my moms house!

Hi! I am totally with you. I have very thick hair too. My hair is also rather light in color for a Korean too. I found that just embracing the situation has worked well for me. There are so many women who wish for long voluminous locks. So now I barrel curl with a 1.5 inch curler every 2 or 3 days with a heat protectant. I also made my own deep conditioner that i use every few days. I found that trying to straighten my hair took too long and just looked unnatural. When I go out now people really like the bouncy curls. Just make sure your hair is healthy and shiny.
I'm half filipina (to be exact, my dad is 3/4 filipino and 1/4 chinese) and have extremely high density, low porosity, fine texture hair that hates glycerin. I get most of my curls from my mother though (who is of scottish/german/british heritage) - My hair health (low porosity from roots to ends) comes from my father's side of the family.

Hello! I'm Chinese, I'm from Singapore, and ever since I was born I've had curly hair. For a long time, I felt alone, bcos of my hair. Everyone else I met, had straight smooth flowing hair. Has anyone else ever felt the same way?

To the lady who started this thread: No! You're not cursed! You're blessed precisely bcos you're different why conform when you were made to be different??

For a very long time, people have always asked me:
1. Are you mixed?
2. Are you sure you're Chinese?
3. Do you know if in your ancestry, are there any Portugese or Indians?
4. Why don't you want to straighten your hair? You'll look much better!
5. Did you get electrocuted? Or are you just having a bad hair day?

I never had an answer to any of those questions. For a very long time, I straightened my hair, but was never fully happy with it. It was always dry and coarse. On my head, it never laid nicely the way it did on girls with naturally straight hair. Growing up, I always wanted to be someone else, and have someone else's hair. I felt anything other than what I had was better.

Recently, I've come to fully accept my hair as it is. I no longer let it control who I am. I no longer desire straight hair, and definitely won't rebond it!! That's the death sentence to my hair!
I wear my hair, not let it wear me. Finding this site, and the 'Curly Girl Handbook' by Lorraine Massey has helped a lot.

Who else has a curly girl story? Were you ever bullied bcos of your hair?
I would like to hear anyone else's views
Thank you for reading mine
And my mom is Japanese with 3A.
