  • If there's any genetics with coarse curly hair, I think? I also know that sometimes if there is African American waaayyy back in the history (although I assume you know if there is or isn't...) that it can pop up randomly! I know a girl who was italian and vietnamese and had 4 children, 3 of which were all dark skinned, dark eyes, and dark hair like her and her husband. Baby #4 came, and was pale with red hair and green eyes! Later she found out that there was a little Irish back in the history
