|Asians With Nappy Hair? by Riskie(f): 3:32pm On Dec 28, 2008|
I came across this when I was looking for something. I thought it was odd and interesting. We perm our hair straight and they perm to get nappy afro hair. I never even knew it was possible to perm the hair and get that texture. It seems to be some kinda of trend in Korea.

It looks pretty!
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by tpia: 4:52am On Dec 29, 2008|
They all seem like wigs, to me. If you notice, the eyebrows are a giveaway.
But look at this:

wouldnt be surprised if they're models. Koreans are big in the hair business.

This has got to be the normal looking Asians I've seen in a while.

This thread kinda made my heart glad.
hmm, Maybe be can seize the hegemonic initiative and massively propagate our ideas, taste and worldview one day. . .
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by dominique(f): 4:58pm On Feb 19, 2011|
those have got to be wigs.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 9:49pm On Feb 19, 2011|
No, their not wigs. There's a place here in New York that does that sorta thing as well. I had some Korean friends that used to rock that kinda thing a couple of years back. Its funny because generally, some black people hate their hair and here you have people who want to have that we as black people despise. Personally, I love my natural hair and I think its sad that many black men and women try to desperately to emulate Eurocentic ideas of beauty. Seems like that slave mentality never really left the minds of some black people.

wow. i don't think this is a wig,
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by filnaija: 7:46am On Feb 26, 2011|
I am an asian, and I have a straight long hair, but if I want to make my hair like afro, I can do it using my real hair. Most asians doesn't wear wigs, if we want to style our hair we use our real hair. We can cut it in any style, curl it, straighten it, color it and makes it very shiny, we can use hair iron and curling machine to curl and straighten our hair for a few minutes, then if we want to change it again we just wash our hair and dry it, then we can do another style,
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 8:05am On Feb 27, 2011|
This may be a bit random but a lot of people don't realize that most Asian people don't have straight hair.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by filnaija: 8:24am On Feb 27, 2011|
That is true actually, most Asians have wavy hair. Most Asians that have straight hair are Filipinos, Korean and Chinese.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 9:32am On Feb 27, 2011|
I remember having a discussion with a Korean friend of mine years ago and we talked about how people assume all Asians have straight hair. In fact, my mother's co-worker's son has curly hair. filnaija, are you Filipino?
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by filnaija: 10:21am On Feb 27, 2011|
Yes, I'm a Filipino and married to a Nigerian, I was in your country a week a go for vacation. Anyway, I have a question, is that real hair wig, extention and weave-on, is it a good business in Nigeria?
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by filnaija: 10:26am On Feb 27, 2011|
Inked_Nerd, are you from Enugu? Because my in-laws are from Enugu and we have properties over there.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 6:35pm On Feb 27, 2011|
Front what I've been reading, the hair industry in Nigeria seems to be booming. I don't live in Nigeria, so I don't know the specifics of that sort of business.
Yes, I am from Enugu. That's where I was born.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by filnaija: 7:14pm On Feb 27, 2011|
Oh ok, my husband was born in Nsuka but my in-law have a branch of Oando in Enugu Town. My husband is still in Naija because he wants to finish our house in Transekulo.
Anyway, I will supply a real hair wig in Lagos and Enugu, probably this week while my husband is still in Naija.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 9:36pm On Feb 27, 2011|
That's sounds wonderful. Its nice that you want to have your own business in Iberian. I suggest you do some research on the hair care industry and the area where you'd like to start your business before you go through with anything.

|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 4:07am On Oct 28, 2011|
Hehehe, if you're black and have "nappy" hair then that should be no problem
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by firestar(f): 10:22pm On Nov 07, 2011|
I hope they don't get tangles in those!
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by Inked_Nerd(f): 1:27am On Nov 08, 2011|
Of course they'll get tangles. It's processed hair made to look nappy so there's bound to be tangles.

|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by michelin89(f): 1:03pm On Nov 12, 2011|
Funny enough I don't like my hair too relaxed. It becomes flat and volumeless. I love it when I can feel the entire circumference of my afro.
Just love my hair!
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by MsDarkSkin: 8:27pm On Aug 11, 2012|
first of all it's not "nappy".
second you can find such people all over the pacific especially samoans.
some folks argue that their hair is like that because of some black admixture which may be true
seeing as how some pacific islands are inhabited by black people.
perhaps that is why samoans esp. in the west coast hang out with and consider themselves African Americans.
|Re: Asians With Nappy Hair? by MsDarkSkin: 8:40pm On Aug 11, 2012|

apparently once upon a time, the stiffer the hair the better looking the man and esp. the woman was...
"Fijian Types of Beauty".
