Random question but I was curious of there were any Asians that had naturally curly or wavy hair? I was reading a hair types chart and it said that Asians have very straight coarse hair, was wondering if they can have any other hair type too
Oh, to be more specific I was talking about East Asians

My sisters and I are Korean and we have naturally, thick, sometimes frizzy, wavy hair. Ours isn't the typical pin straight, shiny Asian girl hair you see.
Yes, it's unusual but not that rare. Women with curly hair are the envy of a lot of the other women because they really stand out as different and can wear a lot of different styles of earrings, hats, scarves, hair bands that don't work with straight hair, and look so pert in miniskirts!
Every Asian person I have come across tends to have very straight hair. Much straighter then white people's on average, I don't think I have ever seen an Asian yet who doesn't have straight hair cosmetically or natural... not saying it doesn't exist but I haven't seen it
It depends on what you're mixed with. My mom ((and every male on her side) has straight hair. My whole dads side has very curly hair, so mine is in between. It's wavy. That's what you get when you mix curly and straight.
Asians are of many different types and races. I am an Asian for instance who was born with curly hair. I've tended to try to straighten it but whenever it starts growing even moderately big they become curly and gain a lot of body. Women tend to love my black non-straight hair though...
For the most part, we all have straight hair. Not necessarily coarse, but it is straight. The curly hair I think is rare but I've seen it multiple times. Once it was very curly, like an Asian afro, and the other time the guy's hair was just really frizzy. But don't be mistaken when you see a girl with curly/wavy hair because it usually is a perm.
I'm Chinese-Filipino and my hair is definitely not straight or course. It's messy wavy and I actually hate it. I have to straighten in everyday before school. Or if I decide to shower in the morning I'll put my hair in a ponytail or run hair gel and hair spray in my hair to help it stick together a little more. I put way too much effort into my hair.
When you say "asian", I'm not sure if you mean East Asian or Asian as a whole. It depends your bloodline and where the previous few generations grew up (geographical adaptation). For example I'm from Bangladesh (south asia) and my hair is like a slightly thicker, curlier version of Sandara Park's (2NE1, S. Korea) natural hair. Sorry that's the best comparison I could find haha.
Many people in my family have that stereotypical sleek and shiny Asian hair, like my sister and cousin (whom people'd think is actually from South China). However I inherited my hair from both my mom (who has very frizzy, curly hair) and someone, probably my maternal grandmother who is originally Indian, who had the sleek, shiny hair.
I think curly hair is more common in Western Asia than it is in Eastern Asia. But it's not non-existant. I've met a few chinese and koreans with wavy, frizzy or and even curly hair. :)
Of course there are some Asians with curly and wavy hair. They're a minority in some countries (such as China or Japan), but they do exist. I think that more Southeast Asians tend to have curly or wavy hair as well.
My friend is cambodian. She has dark brown wavy hair. I asked her if it is natural she said yes but it takes her forever to straighten. I'm mixed with black Asian and white and I would like to point out that it is important not to generalize. My friend doesn't have slanted eyes either. In fact her eyes are the same shape as mine and they are wide
Not all of us have straight hair...especially from the Indian subcontinent. I have plenty of friends who have curly hair and some of them have real bushy hair. Mine however is very straight and difficult to curl. It barely stays up with a hair tie.
