    Default Native American hair

    While browsing through my old books today, I found a couple of pictures depicting Native American women with gorgeous long, thick hair, so I had to scan them and post them here .
    I've always loved how very black and thick Native American hair usually is, and I also like the fact that men usually wear their hair long too.

    These are the pics:


    Look at that long, thick raven hair! Isn't it absolutely gorgeous?



    And these braids are SO thick!

    Do you like Native American hair too? Any other pics you'd like to share? And, of course, Native American LHC fellows - you are very welcome to talk about your hair and hair-routine here, if you wish! I'm in a 'hair-envy' mood .

    I love Native American hair! My friend's daughter is half-Swedish and half Native-American. She has jet-black thick hair, and she's a long hair! Right now, it's at classic (on a 7 year old). She's very lucky to have inherited such gorgeous hair. She's also super pale like her father so it is a striking combination.

    Whenever my friends and I go out to the reservations, I'm always so jealous of the hair I see. Even older men have thick long braids. It's beautiful.

    I'm Native American. I've always liked the thickness of my hair. Somehow it works well in buns and updo's. But the *straightness* can be really hard to deal with. It's so smooth and sleek that it just slips out of braids, clips, buns, etc. Lot's of products and the hair dryer are my very best friends :-)

    I'm 1/4 Native American, of the Black Foot tribe. Alas, I've never really been in touch with that part of me because I don't really know the grandpa that gave me those genes. He is my dad's dad, and my dad was raised by his French mother and didn't meet my grandpa till he was 18, so we don't really know much about our tribe.

    I'm feeling pretty good about my hair, now that I see it's part THAT.

    My great-grandmother on my mom's side was Lenape Indian. I inherited her high cheek bones, but not her gorgeous hair. In fact my dad was the one who had thick black hair and my mom's was thin and brown. I have always admired many things about Native Americans and their hair is definately one of them.

    American Indian and Asian hair are similar-- I love the way their hair looks. Jet black, and typically sleek and thick with a coarse texture. Lovely.

    Similar story for my family, but add another great and flip family sides. At this point there's not a whole lot of evidence of it except slightly high cheekbones, though in pictures of my grandfather its more obvious. I've always vaguely wonder if my grandfather's hair never going grey is related. I had lots of books about Native Americans when I was growing up and I always envied their hair.

    such pretty pictures! I could not say I like one type of hair more then another.
    but it certainly looks gorgeous!
    I wonder what type of hairtoy's they used to have

    (besides the feathers and headbands I see in the pictures of course)

    One of my guy friends is full Cherokee. I love how his thick long wavy hair is thigh length. He is actually my inspiration for me to grow my hair really long like his. After doing research on my family tree for both sides, I'm happy to confirm I'll be able to reach his lengths even though I'm not Native American. Yay for family genes!

    Thanks for the beautiful art, SwordWomanRiona.

    Here's a link to a wonderful picture by George Catlin of a Crow Indian Chief on horseback:

    Always loved this one!
