    Curly Hair in Nordics?

    Which Nordic subtype is most prone to having curly hair, as opposed to wavy or straight hair?

    I'm going to spout off my "unexpert" mouth and say that I notice curly hair most often in an individual with Keltic+CM influences.

    Nordic or Nordish?

    if referring to Nordish, aka Northern European subtypes I believe Bruenns are particularly likely to have curly hair.
    every year is getting shorter, never seen to find the time,
    plans that either come to nought, or half a page of scribble lines,
    hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way;
    the time has come, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say.

    I think that in brunn type curly haires are very common,but among peripetral nordish type there's a consinderable noric component which presents this feaures deriving from dinaric type...

    First of all, of "Nordic" subtypes there are only three: Keltic-Nordid, Hallstatt-Nordid, and East Nordid. Alternatively you count others who are more pred. Nordid and a defined, settled type, and split that "Hallstatt" impression like Lundman into different regions: Gotatyp for one, even Vastmanslandetstyp is still more Nordid than Baltid in essence.

    Secondly, something such as the "Nordish" race does not exist. This term was coined by Richard McCollough, who was a White Nationalist writing about race, who never received any proper training in any disciplines that remotely deal with racial morphologies (them being Evolutionary Biology, History of Medicine, in some American universities Anthropology, and to a lesser extent Forensic Medicine) - his rationale is whilst undoubtedly well argued based upon auto-didactic study of the P/A works, and hence cannot be relied upon scientifically. For a fact, he included certain periphery blends where the influence of a non-"Nordish" type is actually predominant, such as Norid.

    Having dealt with this first hand, we will now come to speak of types that often have curly hair within the larger subracial spectrum of Northern Europe: These are most often of Cro-Magnid influence (for the sake of this, let us count Alpinids as a reduced form of Borreby) - Brunn, Borreby, Alpinid are most well known for their frequent curly head (Baltids on the other hand, are rarely curly - don't ask me why!), and it has been known to occur in pred. Faelids, especially when they are not unmixed. Other types that are often curly include Keltic-Nordid (due to the Dinarid influence, which is often curly as well) and related types. It can also occur in any stabilized CM-Neolithic blend - even though curly Tronders are not a common sight, they do exist.

    Hence I would blame a curly head to be mainly a CM trait, rather than in the more leptomorphic types. But I don't have any scientific back up for that, it is just personal observation as regardless proneness to curly hair.

    I agree with you and respect your insight into this topic, but what about North Atlantids and Paleo-Atlantids? Is not curly hair a common feature amongst the Paleo-Atlantid brunette valley dwellers of South Wales? Certainly the Irish are known worldwide for their curly locks too, any yes, I realise much of this is due to the Brunn influence, but a simple stroll down the beaches of County Wicklow in southeastern Ireland would illustrate textbook examples of the North-Atlantid type, and more often than not, I'm sure you would find that individual to be curly haired.

    True, I did not consider Paleo-Atlantid, I totally forgot about them. :o

    Since they are likely to be a dark CM-influenced type though as well, that would only underline the tendency towards curliness in CM strains, though.

    Would the Irish Brunns be classified as more curly haired than the Western Mediterraneans of Italy, Portugal or Spain?

    Curly Haired Hallstat Nordics

    Can Hallstat Nordics be curly haired? I've read before that Nordic people carry a gene for curly hair. Is this true?

    Pure nordic and med types are characterized by straight hair to my knowledge. Certain nordic subraces do carry the gene though, e.g. the Bruenn.
