    Post Nordics and Fine Hair Texture

    Despite living Far North, Nordics have the finest hair texture of any European Population. Indeed Silky Hair is so predominant in Nordics that it Merits being reffered to as a "Racial Trait".

    Indeed Finehair is a common name among Vikings.

    And it is become common jargon to call Blonde hair "Corn Silk".

    Given the Northernly Origins of the Germanic tribes one would expect that they have "thick and coarse" hair when in reality the exact opposite is true.


    In fact by Hair texture and pigmentation alone it is not difficult to classify someone as having Germanic Origins.

    Asian hair is generally very straight but coarse; it isn't fine-textured.

    Well, it can be hard to tell what texture hair is when it is cut short. I've noticed that at least on Asian women, whose hair is long, the hair looks relatively thick. Perhaps that is related to their hair being black.

    My basis of comparison is my father, who is entirely Germanic, and has very fine-textured/silky hair. My mother is Celtic, and like her my hair is fairly coarse-textured. I'd say the Asians I've seen have hair that is closer to my texture (or my mother's) than to my father's, hence my inferring it is thick in the Asian case.

    The fact that those who dwell in Cold Climates tend to have Thick Hair as in the case of Celts and Asians. Seems to imply that Germanics evolved in Temperate or Warm Climate Region and only later Migrated up North.

    Either that or Skandonaivia was more Temperate in Climate than the British Isles but how could that be?

    Even so Southern dwelling Meds on average have coarser hair than Northern dwelling "Germanics".

    You are confuting Germanic and Nordic. Nordic Slavs and Balts have just as fine of hair as blonde Germanics, and Germanic Meds surely do not.

    Germanics originated in Ukraine and southern Russia, not in the far north, just as all Indo-Europeans did.

    No I am Not. Germanic meds(Atlanto-Meds) were "Germanicised" by Culture but they have a significant amount of "Nordic" Blood as well. So the hair thickness varies in them.

    Germanics aren't just Indo-European they are UP as well.

    So which is it? Nordic or Germanic? They are hardly equivalent. Not all Germanics have fine hair, whereas all pure Nords do.

    How could you identify depigmented, fine-haired Nords as Germanic based only on appearance? Why couldn't they be Slavic or Baltic, or even Celtic?

    No I am Not. Germanic meds(Atlanto-Meds) were "Germanicised" by Culture
    So were Germanic UPs. They are no more 'originally Germanic' than Germanic Atlanto-Meds are. Prior to the Indo-European invasion, there were no 'true Germanics' in Europe.

    but they have a significant amount of "Nordic" Blood as well.
    On what do you base that? For example, what proves that they have any more Nordid influence than Celtic Atlanto-Meds do?

    Germanic as in the Germanic Tribes. The Germanic Tribes Goths,Vandals,Angles,Saxons,Jutes,Franks ,Burgundians,ect... were Nordics. Germanic as in those of Northern German /Skandonaivian Descent.

    I didn't say fine hair was exlusively a Germanic Trait. I said it could be used as one factor in identifying Germanics.

    Germanic is just too broad a term. Lots of N Europeans from near the Scandinavian peninsula have very fine, silky hair. And yes, I've touched it

    The German nations are quite racially mixed (as was commonly understood in the 19th century - Nietzsche mentioned this): Scandinavian types, Central European farmers, and with lots of Roman cultural influence. Just to name a few sources of influence.

    What I meant was Northern Germanics. But Yes Northern Europeans in General have very fine, silky hair.

    Perhaps it has something to do with the Low UV intensity, Temperate, often cloudy and damp weather that is so common in Northern Europe.
