    Post Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid Hair

    Thanks to LG for the link.

    A human hair can be associated with a particular racial group based on established models for each group. Forensic examiners differentiate between hairs of Caucasoid (European ancestry), Mongoloid (Asian ancestry), and Negroid (African ancestry) origin, all of which exhibit microscopic characteristics that distinguish one racial group from another. Head hairs are generally considered best for determining race, although hairs from other body areas can be useful. Racial determination from the microscopic examination of head hairs from infants, however, can be difficult, and hairs from individuals of mixed racial ancestry may possess microscopic characteristics attributed to more than one racial group.

    The identification of race is most useful as an investigative tool, but it can also be an associative tool when an individual's hairs exhibit unusual racial characteristics.


    Caucasoid (European)


    Hairs of Caucasoid or Caucasian origin can be of fine to medium coarseness, are generally straight or wavy in appearance, and exhibit colors ranging from blonde to brown to black. The hair shafts of Caucasian hairs vary from round to oval in cross section and have fine to medium-sized, evenly distributed pigment granules.


    Mongoloid (Asian)


    Hairs of Mongoloid or Asian origin are regularly coarse, straight, and circular in cross section, with a wider diameter than the hairs of the other racial groups. The outer layer of the hair, the cuticle, is usually significantly thicker than the cuticle of Negroid and Caucasian hairs, and the medulla, or central canal, is continuous and wide. The hair shaft, or cortex, of Mongoloid hair contains pigment granules that are generally larger in size than the pigment granules of Caucasian hairs and which often appear to be grouped in patchy areas within the shaft. Mongoloid hair can have a characteristic reddish appearance as a product of its pigment.


    Negroid (African)


    Hairs of Negroid or African origin are regularly curly or kinky, have a flattened cross section, and can appear curly, wavy, or coiled. Negroid pigment granules are larger than those found in Mongoloid and Caucasian hair and are grouped in clumps of different sizes and shapes. The density of the pigment in the hair shaft may be so great as to make the hair opaque. A Negroid hair shaft exhibits variation or apparent variation in diameter because of its flattened nature and the manner in which it lies on the microscope slide. Twisting of the hair shaft, known as buckling, can be present, and the hair shaft frequently splits along the length.

    What about mixed-race individuals?

    The most dominate traits will obviously deterime ones race and racial characteristics...but I would wonder about heavily mixed people (Latin Americans) or AmerInds.

    AmerInds and Latin Americans have typically coarse, straight hair. There is some variation with the hair of Latin Americans (It can be wavy to very curly), but not with AmerInds...They're is always straight.
    "Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her:
    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." - Goethe

    Not always, dear TisaAnne, there are noteworthy exceptions.

    The Siriono or Chori Indians who live in the Bolivian jungle and are much darker than the other AmerInds, are particulary hirsute and their head hair is wavy.
    Mouth region, nose, etc..look very un-mongolid, their browridges are pronounced.
    South America was inhabitated by a Melanesoid kind of people, partly replaced and pushed into secluded areas by the incoming Mongolids, some mixed with these remaining tribes and that is probably the origin of the Lagid race to which the Chori belong.

    I was meaning Native American Indians (north america), not south. I have studied Native Americans extensively, both culturally and physically...straight hair is the rule.
