I think Somalis (and Horn Africans in general) have the most diverse hair types in the entire world. You can get people with straight/wavy hair, curly hair, and of course a more kinky hair texture. What kind do you have?

I personally think most Somalis have type 3 hair, but in some older threads, I was made aware that this may not be the case. Some were arguing that type 2 or type 4 were more common.
:ohhh:
We have such a wide variety of hair types within our own people that it's hard to pin down the one that most of us have. That's why I want to make a survey of people on this forum to try and more accurately get a sense of the average Somali hair texture.

All very beautiful hair types! I've seen Somalis with these different hair textures. What kind do you have, and what do you think is the most common hair texture for Somalis?

That's what I thought. Timo jilec and timo Madow are the minorites. Most of us have 3 type hair.

For type 4 outliers it’s usually 4a. Never seen a 4c (ethnic Somali)

Type 2 is more common with coastal Barawa and Bendiri like my mother’s family.

Either way curly hair is the best abaayo

I would say a mix of 2 and 3. It depends on how I deal with them. They turn kinda wavy when they grow a little bit, but I cut it short and turn them into a high fade... Idc about hair that much tho even tho I take good care of 'em. What's up with these threads? @CaliSomali :icon lol:
 
My older brother has nappy hair my younger brother hair softer then mine tho shits crazy
Literally all my siblings have type 2 wavy hair. I'm the only one with the curly type 3 hair. Somali genetics are crazy. We are so diverse when it comes to skin tone/hair texture even within our own immediate families.

Ikr. My university has a long ass one. So I'm stuck at home with my family. My parents barely let me out of the house. I can't wait to go back to my college dorm to get my freedom back.

I wish you were my neighbour

So, you don't go out or even hang out with your friends to smoke some joints with them or was that a lie? :dwill:

My parents have hella cracked down on that recently because they don't like me going out almost everyday. I think they can tell that I'm up to no good when I go out.
:mjlol:
I just have to wait until I'm back on campus to hang out with my friends more I guess. I go out all the time when I'm in university, but when I'm home, that's another story. You know how Somali parents are with their daughters. I usually sneak out at night once or twice a week minimum these days.
