Lots of Somalis have your hair type it’s looks around 4b it doesn’t mean you have Bantu blood. There is misconception that all Somalis have the same typical 3c/b hair type which isn’t true.If I take a dna test, I wouldn’t be surprised if I had bantu blood. It’s not that I look Bantu, it’s that my hair is completely different from the Somalis I’ve seen. Its not madow, it’s just really thick and fluffy. I’m lucky that I’m light skin tho because it doesn’t look bad on me. the closest pic I could find that looks like my hair is this girl
but when my hair is wet it’s completely different. It looks exactly like this
my dad’s looks like every other farax
genetics is weird right?
i have that exact hair but it always frizzes, how do I get that original textureMy hair is mostly 3b with a bit of 3a. This Ethiopian girl has the most similar hair texture to me I've seen so far. Sadly, but hair is not as long and thick as hers due to my shit diet and poor overall health.
I dunno, walaahi. Frizzy hair is caused by a lack of moisture and rough cuticles so I guess keeping your hair moisturized (and sealing in that moisture), staying hydrated and protecting your hair from excessive heat could help.i have that exact hair but it always frizzes, how do I get that original texture
I’m trying. I put nafaqo in my hair every week and stopped the heat but it’s still no progressI dunno, walaahi.

Thank you for that xGenetics are weird, and you’re not alone if you have Bantu DNA, or any other African ethnicity. It’s virtually impossible to not have something in the mix, any one of those ancient ancestors genes could decide to show up.
I have typical Somali hair 3b 3c I never know which one. But I was given such a complex about my hair growing up (oddly enough by my Hooyo who has 4c hair herself). I grew up hating it and not knowing what to do with it.
If there’s anything I would say to any Somali or black sister it’s - love your hair. Love and embrace all of its untamed curliness, it’s truly beautiful x
