I am Indian, wear my hair curly and proud, here in Australia, all cool. I like to mix it up, sometimes curly, sometimes straight....i personally like it curly but at work they sometimes prefer "professional, sleek look" and also culturally indians don't generally like curly hair unless really long and looking very film actressy like.... I am wondering can anyone please tell me what curly hair type i am?

The asian media is to blame too. They never show women with curly hair on-screen. Most women are shown to have straight or slightly wavy hair. No naturally curly haired women are shown! That changes the perception of whats beautiful, whats not

My ex is from Andrha (Vijayawada - I think that is still in Andrha after they split the state).

He had a fro in college. WAAAAAY out to here. Looked like a dandelion puff. Kind of like the charlatan Sai Baba. In fact that is probably why he wore it that way as his family were into Sai Baba. Best thing I ever did was wean him off that guy.

Anyway. Once he was over the Sai Baba thing he went back to cutting it short. So it looks wavy. But it is kinky curly if he would let it grow. His sisters straighten, his brothers keep it short, but they're all actually curlies.

He's also embarrassingly (for him, when growing up in India) hairy, according to other Indians. He's sort of middlin' hairy by most standards. He hated it growing up, got lots of teasing. Has a 5 o'clock shadow by noon. Used to shave twice a day, I think he's given that up now (I don't think his hair grows as fast now that he's passed 60). Not too many hairy Indian guys make it as actors, they nearly always end up playing thugs and criminals, LOL!

My family is bangladeshi and 70% including the men have curly hair. Im the only one that actually leaves it curly..my cousins all straighten and my moms generation just does the brush thing so it looks wavy. Most south asians in my opinion have curly hair, just as much as straight at least. It usually looks wavy though..a lot just brush, oil and/or braid it.

Of course my mom hated my hair..i think she's finally just okay with it. I love it..I straightened it a few times in college and i looked like a generic indian chic, didnt care for it lol. My curly hair is one of my best features.

It's been a while, but I'm not sure if we ever talked about our hair textures etc. When it comes to the whole "brushing it out poof" thing a lot of people do, I've been really confused with growing my hair out layers vs. really long to no layers again. The problem is always that I worry it's not as curly looking and kind of frizzy if/when I decide against layers. I'm just not going to let a deva mullet happen to me again.

Well I'm not Indian but I am very often confused with one. I do however know about the culture since I went to college with Indians and Bangladeshis, and when I was in Indian someone told me you look just like an Indian with that big hair. I had roommates and friends with curly hair that hide it so well, I was shocked to know that my roommate had curly after a year of being friends. One friend would cover up her hair with a scarf and when she got it relaxed she never wore the scarf again. In India there were many women with big hair and I think they are more people with curly than the general believe. I often heard my hair is not curly pretty like yours, I wish my hair was like yours, mine is just curly crazy and ugly. I never knew what hair type my roommate had the few times I saw her after shower, her hair was pretty but the curl pattern was severely damaged by all that straightening. Also I could never convince her to wear natural, I think she had no idea of what to use or how to style since her whole life has been focused on hiding it.
I think Indians have beautiful straight hair and they know how to properly take care of it, it was because of them that I learnt how to take care of my hair in a more natural way. I also think they have gorgeous curly hair and should be proud of it and not hide it.
