My dad's hair is 3c and after tracing his family back on all sides 4+ generations back, their is virtually no non-black ancestry.  Many black people have varied textures but they don't care enough to find out what it is, what it does, or what really works for it so they lump it all in one category and usually not in a good way.

Actually most AA have fine hair. Type 4 hair tends to me the finest. But the pattern is tight. And most of us do have 3c and 4a hair.

I knew this Ethiopian girl. She had like 3c hair. But I think your hair changes textures the longer it gets.

No. By fine I mean thin strands. Texture is different from pattern. Texture is the feel of the strands (spongy, wiry, silky, etc) you can have coarse silky hair. Asians tend to have it. The strands are thick but straight, giving them the silky effect. I'm saying most AA have fine strands, and yes a lot of them are silky, but since the pattern is so tight, you're not feeling the actual strand, you are feeling the strand's curl pattern. Density also plays a part on how the hair looks as a whole. For example, if you have a tight curl pattern, a lot of strands per square inch, and fine strands, it can come off as being coarse when in fact it's not. Just like a lot of people assume naturally straight hair is fine when in fact it can be any of the three strand thicknesses.

you know what? that actually makes sense because i see a lot of black girls with coarse looking hair in their pony tails but on the tops of their head its all smoothed down. and ill ask how come you dont just smooth it all like that? okay so fine = thin strands which are the opposite of thick strands. i understand wiry hair, it usually just looks unhealthy IMO. but what the heck is spongy hair? all i think of when i think of sponges is that they soak everything up, does the same thing apply with hair? if so how can that be a type of texture?

I honestly don't remember if I was talking to you or not. I feel like I would've quoted but idk. Generally speaking though this seems to be the consensus at least irl. It's sad.

'Because Africa is so close to Spain, France, Italy and is part of the UK..'

Actually Khivey this is not the case. The UK as in the United Kingdom consists only of Wales, England, Northern Ireland & Scotland. The UK is part of the continent Europe as is France, Italy & Spain. But Africa is no way shape or form is a part of the UK or Europe, it is a separate continent.

how many times is this gonna be discussed?
there are NO FULLY BLACK WOMEN, 4b is a Black texture, period
now the case is, you don't have to have MUCH of admixture to get it, the same with light skin, you can be 90% afro and get that texture, but at least don't be delusional as to where it came from
