    Curly Hair

    Hi,

    I read a thread a while back with a pic of a girl with curly hair. Her curly hair was problematic in classifying her. I was just wondering why? Is that something that's not typically a germanic trait?

    My mom was 3/4 german, 1/4 french and she had naturally curly hair, so do I. My grandmother did also, and that's where the little bit of french comes it. We all have (had) dark brown hair, blue eyes, and very fair pinkish skin.

    strangely, you have all the traits of a typical irish person, except the untanneable white skin. Well, you can have curly hair, not a frizzy one and be europid, CM types have more prominence to have wavy-curly hair.
    I have french blood too, and born with curly hair, but now is wavy-straight with some curls

    My mama's hair did something similar. Somewhere in her 30's it lost all it's curl. Mine has stayed curly so far. My skin doesn't tan either. When I get out in the sun I turn brilliantly red, then go right back to brilliantly white.
    Irish? Really? LOL I'm not supposed to have any on that side that I know of, unless something happened no one told me about (which I suppose is possible). Now on my daddy's side I'm supposed to have a Scottish ancestor, but I don't have any specifics on that and everyone is gone now that would have known.

    I'm just being broad. I just notice that most people from the more southern regions of the world such as Africa north africa italy and much of southern europe of curly hair.

    Curly hair can most certainly be found in Germanics. Specifically, it is often associated with those of Cro-Magnid descent, especially the Brünns.

    Of course, it also depends on one's definition of curly. There is an obvious difference between the hair of an African and that of a heavily Cro-Magnid individual from the British Isles, for instance, despite both being seen as curly-haired. If you're going to define curly hair to be the typical African's hair, then it will never make sense to call a Northwestern European curly-haired. 'Wavy' would be the more apt term in that case, even if it's much curlier than the Northwestern European mean.

    Regardless, there is nothing inherently un-Germanic about a Germanic with curlier hair; at least not any more so than there is something Asian about a Germanic with straight hair.

    It doesn't matter what you're talking about when you mention "curly hair", it is important what the OP was talking about when she mentioned "curly hair", that's the definition you'd have to go by, or ask for clarification.

    On the traditional mean of wavy CM hair, which I also possess to a varying but generally greater degree, Stanley has said all that needs to be said. That being said, however, even curly-proper hair need not be inherently un-Germanic, it is just quite rare (just frizzy hair is virtually impossible in Germanics and very unlikely in unmixed Europids).

    Or to phrase an acquaintance I've not spoken to in years: "People've asked me if I'm Jewish due to my really curly hair. I point out to them I got it from my grandfather who was in the SS."
    -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)

    So the curl pattern is a big factor then? OK The pic that I was referencing had a girl with small spiral curls, so if you're looking at the curl pattern then I can see what they were getting at there.

    Mine is wavier than wavy but not spiral curls or kinky or anything. Large S shaped curls. The woman that cuts it says I have a medium curl.

    Why would frizzy hair not be possible?
