Hey my felloe curlies,
So this is a wierd topis, I guess but I just wondered how different 3c hair looks from different places. I was talking to my friend, and we realized that people with a huge diverse background usually end up with curly hair. Of course, thats not always the case. Her I'll start:

My Mom is of german, scottish, and namibian descent and my father is half cape verdae and half portuguese. Here are a few pictures of my hair:
?attid=0.0&disp=emb&view=att&th=120780b8dee925f8

?attid=0.0&disp=emb&view=att&th=120780c2753abf75

Sorry my pictures are so humongous, I cant seem to change the size. But yea so just tell us where you're from and if you can post some pics!

    Maybe we are DISTANT relatives, LOL. My Mom is part Carib too. She's Black, from St. Kitts (Caribbean) and there's also some portuguese in there. My father is African American. He's says we have a tad bit of Cherokee in us (which is believable because of his features) but I refuse to tell people that, LOL. Every Black person in America claims to have Cherokee in their blood. I'm perfectly happy saying he's/we're all Black.

    Lol...well I'm a lot less interesting. I'm black. My maternal grandfather is half white and my paternal great grandmother is half white, thats where I think I get my 3c curls from. I'm also part Cherokee, but that's a claim held by many African Americans in North Carolina so I don't know how accurate that is.

    Hey there now! I'm black. My parents are both black people. I was born in the US of A...LOL On my maternal grandmother's side, we have caribbean blood. My grandmother's father was from the island of Montserrat, in the West Indies, and she raised me up with that Caribbean strictness and impressed upon me respect and good manners. I personally have never been there though. It's funny but, every time I try to plan a trip there, the volcano erupts. I don't think it wants me there. It never fails. LOL
    I also have that caucasian/ indian admixture thing going back a few generations, but so many people do whose ancestors have been here for generations. It's very common. My dad's side is a whole other story.

    I'm from Chicago, (boo hoo wind!!) but if you mean heritage wise I'm 1/2 Italian, 1/2 German (tiniest bit of Irish in there, but 50/50 is easier to tell people.) My dad is like type 2c, my mom had 3a when she was younger, so how in the heck did I get type 3c??!!

    Dumb genetics! (I'm still kind of convinced I was switched at birth... with a poodle.)
    Of course all people with curly hair are crazy! Why'd you think the crazy sign is twisting the imaginary curls by your head?:laughing5::laughing5::tongue3:

    My background is similar to all other Black Americans of the diaspora-mixed up, lol... African, Irish, French and supposedly Blackfoot Indian *shrug* My father's side of the family is still very much in touch with their Irish roots since they lived "freely" with both races since the 1600s in Canada. No real record of the African or Creole (French) heritage.

    My father is a dark skinned Dominican with 4b hair. Mom is a white Dominican with 3a hair (she's lost her curls now that she's older). My entire family is so many different colors (all Dominican and some PR on my mom's side) but that's normal down there.

    My thick hair is 3C. My sister's fine hair is 4A. Its funny how you can have siblings with different types of hair.
