    Default Your hair strands

    I'm half-asian half-caucasian and i noticed that about 30.2% of my hair strands are dark, thick ones, and the rest medium-thickness lighter strands. Another half-asian half-caucasian friend of mine had the same thing going on for her hair (until she dyed it blue!)
    I've yet to creepily examine other people's heads.

    So in the meantime, if you would like, please state your ethnicity and hair strand composition in percentage with 3 significant figures

    LOL, I am 100% Asian and my hair is considered a "warm" shade of black. I have red and silver lowlights. So in certain lighting, my hair has a slight red tint while in others, it has a slight silver tint. Older Asian ladies love to pull out my silver hairs.

    My hair is very thick and straight all around. It's crap for styling but looks good straight. I heard that my hair was shaved as a baby to make it grow thicker (Korean custom???).

    My hair was ok as a child but then went so thick, curly and frizzy that many hairdressers claim they are not trained to cut it. Iíve been told itís like African American hair despite me being of English, Scottish, Irish and Norwegian descent, lol. To deal with it at least half of my hair is always shaved underneath so if I tied up my hair most of my head would look bare.

    all my hair seems the same thickness to me...The actual hair follicles are very thin, but I actually have a lot of it...but looks thin. all my hair dressers I’ve had when they color my hair say something like, wow your hair is actually pretty thick, I’m going to have to grab another bottle of color, I thought it was thinner. I wish it had more body and I’ve tried to fry it in the past just so it will do something. anyway, it’s wavy in the back underneath and it’s a real pain to try to straighten, and most of the time I don’t even try. that’s really the only inconsistency.


    I’m American of British/German ancestry

    I'm mostly Slav mixed with German, some Italian & Greek, have very fine and dense dark blonde hair.
    I used to have very fine & dense straw-blonde hair for most of my childhood.
    It looks like I'm similar to my cousin, neither of us will ever be bald like our fathers. Weird.
    My brother has my dad's hair (curly blond? wtf) he is 24 and going bald lol.

    I’m half Asian too and my hair is very fine and dark brown. Being in a humid environment gives it a bit more volume and frizz.

    European ancestry. My hair is some medium brown or something and incredibly fine. It tangles really easily because the strands are so thin. I think they're all about the same size. They aren't all the same color most likely.

    I'm a mutt/bitch made up mainly of German, Spanish, Mexican, and Irish heritage. As a kid, I thought I was cursed with shitty hair. It wasn't very manageable, not straight like my father's and not nearly as curly as my mother's. I used to play around with it, examine it etc as a kid, looking at the strands especially after I found out about the structure of hair, and how it was the same material as our fingernails (and rhino horns!).

    Both myself and hairdressers that I've gone to have noticed that my hair is mainly made up of coarse strands mixed in with some thinner strands, somewhat thicker overall in density, and tends to have a "wavy", "frizzy", or even "unkempt" look when not properly taken care of. As a teenager, since I didn't know how to take care of my hair, this translated to me usually wearing my hair up while still trying to do subcultural hairstyles.

    As an adult, I learned that silicones usually harm the structure of curly hair, so I tried out a few. When I'm able to buy shampoos that don't have a lot of silicones, I usually opt for Biotera Long and Healthy (no makeupalley page, so I'm sadly linking influenster). Really restores the curl, bounce, volume, and shine to my hair.

    Oh yeah. It's dark brown btw. Nearly black. Almost forgot to mention that haha.

    I'm Slavic, but not from Eastern Europe, so my hair is a really dark brown. I think texture wise, all the strands are the same thickness, and it's also very healthy and shiny despite the hairdye. I don't think the strands themselves are particularly thick but I do have volume. I've been blessed with good hair in that regard.

    As for whether it's straight, wavy or curly, I am the same as @Vex in that my mom has curly hair, and my dad straight, and mine is some weird mixture of both that behaves differently with different hairstyles and drying techniques. Right now I have virtually no layers in my hair so it looks straight/a bit wavy. When I had a lot of layers, it curled up.

    I've also recently switched to shampoo without any silicone. I don't know if it's doing much, I suppose I should give it a lot more time lol.

    My hair annoys me because itís so stubbornly stiff and straight and will just stand straight up no matter what. I just ignore it, only mowing it down with a machine once it gets too long. Itís kinda coarse and thick, so good thing is that itís pretty indestructible and likely wonít fall off. Someone cutting it once compared it to hemp rope.
    Mostly finnish ancestry and I think that is where it comes from, nobody else in my family has hair like this though. Color is light brown now, used to be blonde before my teens.

    My natural hair is dark brown with some red, wavy, fine, fluffy, volume. My bangs start basically from the middle of head and I have 2 calicks in the front that next to each other which gives my bangs some pouffiness. I also have 2 calicks on top of my head which gives my hair a sort of ďbumpĒ on top. I probably got the red strands from my momís side because sheís Mediterranean (Italian, French, Spanish). She has raven black hair, but one of her younger brothers was born with white blonde (same parents).

    I'm a mix of Western European, Turkish, and Kurdish ancestry, my hair is dark brown (though going slightly grey in some areas even though I'm only in my 30s *cries*), wavy, and has thicker strands in some areas (like the front) than others (side or back). I like it shorter because the waviness of it is easier to manage, too long and it starts to look pretty messy.

    Based on the look of close relatives, am ethnically mixed of north/balts and south/turks, as mb most Russians/"ukranians"/"belorussians" of the centr. Relatives have significant look variety even among siblings, due to mixing. My appearance mb said as close to eastern balts. Until 20 yo was closer to blond. With the age hairs become darker, what I notice when see them cuted as prefer short hairs since ~20 yo.
    Besides the color, did not thought what kind of hairs I have. Seemed to be common. Not curly.

    But what about the individual strands? Are they uniform or do they vary?

    I've got British Isles heritage, my hair is a mix of red, brown, and blonde, and it's incredibly thick, straight, and dense so I look like a mowed lawn when my hair is short-medium length. My hair doesnt vary in thickness, I didn't even know that could happen.

    Weird. My husband also has red, brown, and blonde hair. I never would have believed it if I hadn’t seen for myself lol. His hair is very thin. He was very blonde as a child, toe head. But now it’s every color, and his beard is red lol. People think he’s a red head, which he hates. He’s of mostly English ancestry. Some Swedish and Dutch too I think.

    Uniform in my case. I keep my hair short for convenience. IF I let it grow it would look like the hair of Legolas :/.. its like this super fine silky dense uniform blond hair.

    I am 100% Asian, and my strands vary in thickness. It can be reddish brown in the light, but it is mostly black. It's wavy in humidity and straight if I add stuff to it. I have currently bleached my hair though and will be dyeing it light purple very soon.

    I'm Caucasian, and the hair on my head is dishwater blond, with some natural highlights. My facial hair, when I choose to let it grow, is the same color, with various shades of red mixed in here and there.

    I like my hair color, but I really hate my hair texture. It's quite wavy, and I prefer it to be nice and straight. Taming it requires a mix of luck and extensive time with my hair straightening iron.
