Your blog has stated Asians typically has an average of 80,000 hair while Caucasians have 100,000 hair on their head.
I am from North India quite fair skinned. What would I be classified as? Indians, I believe, are genetically classified as Caucasians.
Unless I am getting too old not to notice the continents drift apart, last time I checked India is part of the the Asian continent. In England, they refer to Indians as Asians. There is some debate about whether racial categorizations are medically valid, but if we measure race based upon hair count, we see groupings by geography. Asians cover Korea, Japanese, and all of China and points south. There, the average total count for hairs on the head measures 80,000 hairs.
Most Europeans average 100,000 hairs on their head. As our geographic tour takes us south into North Africa, the total hair counts start mixing between 80,000 – 100,000 total hair count. Moving more into Asia, the hair counts seem to move towards the 80,000 number.
Taking our tour south into the African continent and the dark skin, kinky hairs starts showing up, the hair counts drop further to the 60,000 range. One can rationalize that the African kinky hair type, reflects accommodations to the heat of the African savannah, where the scalp is a major heat loss organ, acting like a radiator which allows air flow through the hair to dissipate heat.
