Our hair lacks a central core. At one time it was used for packing around bearing in industry.

Somalis and Ethiopians have to be the only group I can't stand the sight of. They look very ugly, especially the overweight Somalis who wear those Muslim things.
I had to tell the Somalis in my secondary school that I was a gay Satanist just to stop their ugly asses asking me out.

Some African people have thick hair. So what? White people have greasy,bad smelling, non soft hair. If they don't wash it every day! Black people's hair will be dirt free for like what? 3-4 days

I didn't say all. I asked why do black people have coarse hair. It is not common for and most Asians(except some Melanesians), Europeans,and Naitve Americans to have coarse or rough hair. For some Horn of Africa Africans and some North Africans it is a different story. My question was basically for West Africans, Central Africans, East Africans, and many black South Africans, as well as many Melanesian peoples and many African descent peoples in the Americas.
I also asked how is it that white people have different colored eyes and hairs, and why asian
peoples don't have any eye lids.
You must be a child or have never paid attention in school. This is simple biology and DNA/genetics type questions. Simple stuff. Go to school and learn already

I would like you guys input on this. Why do think we all look so different from each other?
mutations and adaptions to climate. Black people don't just have coarse hair. Coarse hair is the thickness of the hair strands. They also have fine to medium hair as well. Asians also have coarse hair.

Actually many BP are NOT born with kinky hair. The hair changes or becomes drier as the child gets older while for some Black ethnicities, their hair doesn't change as much like some HOA or some Black Asians. Asian PPL can actually make their hair kinky...

African hair produces plenty of protective oils, called sebum. In fact, African hair actually produces more oils than Caucasian and Asian hair. However, due to the tight curls, the oil fails to spread evenly along the hair fiber.
Without lubrication, the fibers become very dry. This causes the brittle strands to flake and roughen, resulting in hair that is coarse to the touch. Very curly hair from all ethnic groups often lacks the silky smoothness of straight hair. This may due to the same reason, but to a lesser extent.
The brittleness of African hair adds to the illusion that it cannot be grown long. The tight curls create stresses at each turn in the hair fiber. The hair strands become weak and fragile, making them prone to breakage. As a result, tightly coiled hair tends to stay quite short.
So is this hair quality genetic?
There are two strong reasons why we would expect African hair texture to be genetic. Firstly, the texture is universal in Africans, while nearly absent from other ethnic groups. Secondly, it is consistently passed down to the children in each new generation.
Some Black babies are NOT born with kinky hair tho, so natural oils traveling down wasn't an issue. The production of sebum is altered resulting in drier hair. It would seem PPL whether their hair is curly or straight still produce more sebum than BP with kinky hair. The curl pattern doesn't affect this much.
