Any one ever want to ask a question?( sensitive)

I would like to ask a couple of questions that are not pc, and may seem a little racist( I am not racist). Like I have heard that black people can not wash thier hair, Is that true? I would think not. I have also heard that black people cannot get lice. Is that true? One more for little people. Is the reason you are little a genetic thing? Sorry, I know these are strange questions, but no one ever told me any of this and I am just curious.

  • Heh, you do realize these questions can be answered if you google them, right? Yes, black people can wash their hair. However, their hair tends to be naturally dry, so using shampoo too often will strip the natural oils too much and damage their hair, especially if it's relaxed or otherwise chemically treated. EVERYONE can get lice, including black people. Dwarfism can result from myriad medical conditions, each with its own separate symptoms and causes. Two disorders, achondroplasia and growth hormone deficiency (also known as pituitary dwarfism), are responsible for the majority of dwarfism cases.

  • I've heard the first question too. I have no idea though! lol I think they do, maybe just not as often b/c of the texture??
    I'm pretty sure the little person question would be yes. Usually one or both parents carries the gene...

  • black hair can be washed, and is, as needed. its not as necessary as 'others', as the natural oils are needed moreso..where as 'others' tend to strip it out and feel 'dirty' if they have oil on their scalp. (fyi: most 'others' don't need to wash as frequently as they do, either.)
    anyone can get lice.

  • My very good friend is black and she washes her and her kids hair quite often. Not sure if it's every day, every other day or so on.
