I don't have enough info to answer this, and I think styling depends on what you're doing. Very straight hair tends to be harder to get into curled styles or braided styles, without the help of accessories and such. But I'm tempted to say Asians have the strongest hair, and black people have the weakest hair, in terms of resistance to breakage.
I'm black and I love my natural hair too much, but that's one thing I would change. I have an Asian friend who dyes her hair all the time, straightens once a week, sometimes twice, and still has hair that at least appears strong and healthy. I wouldn't have much hair if I did all that lol I have very kinky, curly, afro textured hair, which I love, but it's the most fragile hair out there and if you want it to be long, you have to be more delicate with it than any other hair type. Prone to breakage, which can keep your hair from getting long if you don't know what you're doing.
Not sure about balding. I’ve seen balding in all groups, and I haven’t looked into the stats, as I said. Black women can do a number on their hair because of all the shit we do to it sometimes, but I'm not sure of any genetic predisposition to balding otherwise.
I do think white people tend to experience greying hair earlier.0

It depends because there are many factors that make hair great. When it comes to having healthy, full hair I think black people have the advantage (it's just a guess though) but they are at a disadvantage when it comes to managing and styling hair. When it comes to color, white people win hands down - no other race has so many different shades and colors. But they are prone to balding. Asians are said to have thick hair resistant to balding, I have no idea if that's true. Perhaps each race has both pros and cons when it comes to hair.0
