    Hair Type of Northern Europeans?

    I think a similar thread has been posted before, but i can't find it...Anyway, what i wanted to discuss was, is fine hair typically a northern European trait, and why? Why is it that in hot countries, people tend to have very thick hair? Wouldn't it be more practical for those in hot countries to have fine hair, and those in cold countres to have very thick hair..?? I ask because i myself have very fine hair, and wondered if it's typically a northern European trait and why. I've noticed that many Europeans have thick hair (or maybe it's fine but they just have a lot of it...). I actually hate having fine hair, and always think, on cold days, how illogical it is that i, and many others in northern europe, have fine hair in a temperate climate...

    I know blonde hair is usualy the finest/thinest.

    Afro hair is like wire wool, I presume thats why they have to keep it so short unless they fancy a bit of Rustyfaryan!

    I am Nordic and I have fine hair.
    Sometimes I wish it had more volume.
    There are many people with this type of hair here.
    The hair is fine and straight.

    When I see a blond person with straight thin hair I often think eastern european.
    I don't know if there's anything to back that up with.

    I thought thick hair was an northern european trait, and by thick I don't mean the steel-wool kind of hair like africans have, but high volume.
    Because thick hair and excessive body hair seems to go hand in hand and I believe that's a typical northern european trait.

    Nordics tend to have thin hair but a lot of times they will have a lot of it. The thin soft (mostly straight) blond hair is known as "angel hair" or in the past "elf hair". Alpines tend to have the dark and thick hair and more body hair. I'm not sure which is better a lot of thin hair or have individual thick hairs. I think thin hair is definately more easy to manage and has a more neat apearance and such.

    At any rate Nordics are not well adapted for the cold. They are in fact the opposite. For cold weather you want dark hair, and you probably want it thick. You want to be short and stocky not tall, lanky and graceful like a Nordic (that's better for hot weather) etc. In every way exept the paleness seems Nordics are more adapted for warm climates. Or maybe they are just adapted for indoor living. I can say this Western Europe has the mildest weather on earth. Its not a cold frigid place that people make it out to be.

    If you want somebody adapted for the cold you would probably want an Alpine Aryan. though Italians and meds are more similar to Alpines than Nordics they probably can handle the cold better than Nords. Though I hear some siberians can somehow go out in sub zero weather without gloves on and shoot a bow and arrow- something no white man can do. They have some superior genes for the cold yet are fairly dark complected. Maybe a cobination of siberian and Alpine would create the most cold hardy human.

    I had bright blonde hair growing up (which has now turned brown) but it was very thick and still is.

    From what I gather, Nordoid types tend to have finer hair, whilst Cro-Magnid types tend to have somewhat more voluminous hair and not rarely also wavy hair. However, both essentially tend to have comparedly slight body hair, even with medium and medium-dark hair pigment, which tends to set them apart from the more swarthy types.

    This is, however, only empirical observation - and where observed, the sample of hair on a specific person tended to be obviously scarce. The only time I'd be able to sample another man's full hair growth would be during communal shower at the swimming pool, and there I suppose I'm not queer enough to stare.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Why do all Northern mammals have light hair/fur then?

    I've wondered this question too, because I am of Nordic and German decent and the males in my family tend to have light colored hair while young, but eventually turns darker as they grow older. We also have a thick head of straight to wavy hair. Though body hair is absent until middle-age or so. However, my girlfriend's mother's side is Nordic and the males all have thin blonde hair and are also absent of body hair.

    Probably for camoflauge reasons as an adaptation against predation. Caribou have a mulit-colored pelage ranging from greys and browns, but a polar bear has white fur and coal black skin beneath.
