What type of hair will two curly hair parents have?
Asked in Genetics
Could a dad with curly hair and a mom with straight hair have a child like either parent?
Yes, they could have a child with either type of hair or even a child with wavy hair. If two straight haired parents had straight haired children, but the parents-parents had curly hair, the straight haired children's kids could have curly hair too. If anyone in the family had a different type of hair (or any feature for that matter), there is a chance that the kids or even grandkid's could get it.

Can two straight hair people make curly hair child?
Yes! It's more likely that the child would have straight hair, but it's all about the genes. Likely both of the straight-haired people have straight-hair dominant genes; if that's true, then there's about a 25% chance that the child would have curly hair. If the parents or even grandparents had curly hair when they were younger, it's more likely as well. For example -- both of my parents have straight hair (but my mom had curly hair when she was younger) and my sister has straight hair as well. I turned out to have curly hair.

Do girls like curly hair?
There are two ways to answer this question. 1. Do girls like their own curly hair? Unfortunately, it is human nature for people to be unhappy with what they have. Curly girls straighten their hair and vice versa. I personally have curly hair and LOVE it. It all depends on the person. 2. Do girls like guys with curly hair? Yes, curly guys are HOT :) im totally with number one :D i have curly hair and LOVE it as well :D

How do you get your hair curly without a perm?
1. Take a shower and wet your hair completely. 2. Shampoo and condition your hair thoroughly. 3. Put your hair up in a towel for about three minutes. 4. Braid your hair in one, or two braids. 5. Go to bed, or do something else, and in an hour or so, your hair will be curly. If you french braid your hair, it is more curly if you do. Results may very, curly hair is no garenteed.
Is it possible for two parents with brown hair to have an offspring with blonde hair?

Cute ways to put your short curly hair up?
You can have two ponytails and since you have short hair, it will look like two curly buns. I personally think that ponytails look slutty on anyone, so I don't recommend it. I would say that you put it up in a high ponytail. Or you could straighten it with a really strong straightener depending on how curly your hair is.
Does it mean I'm not the father my partner and i has curly hair but your grown child has straight hair?
Not at all. The curly-hair gene is dominant, meaning only one of the two genes for hair curl has to be set to "on" to give you curly hair. For the heck of it, C is curly hair and c is straight hair. If you are Cc (one curly gene, one straight) and your partner is Cc, you have a 25-percent chance of producing a straight-haired kid: the child could be CC, Cc with the C gene from you, Cc with the C gene from your partner or cc. And in this case, the child is cc. So yeah, you and your partner definitely could have produced a straight-haired child.

Is there any studies done on genetics of straight and curly hair?
Can a couple (one with straight hair, one with curly) have one straight haired child and one curly haired, and one of the children has green eyes and the other blue? Both parents have green. Is this possible? The quick answer is that it is possible for the couple you describe to have kids with blue or green eyes. (Although less likely, it is even possible to have a brown-eyed child.) In terms of hair type, by the traditional sorts of theories that are out there, it isn't possible for a curly headed and a straight haired couple to have straight haired kids (or, by a strict definition, curly haired kids either!). Of course, genetics is always more complex than the traditional sorts of theories. One way for the couple you describe to have a straight haired child is if the curly headed parent actually has wavy instead of curly hair. It may seem like a minor distinction but from a genetic point of view, the difference is critical. Why would this distinction matter? Remember, that for most genes, you have two copies of each gene that you inherited from your mother and your father. For most "traditional" genes, there is a dominant and a recessive version. What this means is that if you have either one or two copies of a dominant version of a gene, you'll look like that gene. To look like the recessive version, you need two copies of the recessive form. For example, with something simple like whether earlobes are attached or not, there are two versions (or alleles) of the ear lobe attachment gene. Free earlobe (G) is dominant over attached (g). What this means is that if you inherit a G version of this gene from either your mother or father, you will have free earlobes. To have attached earlobes, you need to get a g copy from both parents. So, from a gene point of view (or genotype), both a GG and a Gg person has free earlobes and a gg has attached earlobes. So how does it work for hair type and eye color? Neither hair type nor eye color works in this simple way. There are two versions of the hair type gene, curly (C) and straight (s). Hair type is an interesting case of something called incomplete dominance. What this means is that with hair type, if you have one of each version of the gene, you get a mix of the two or wavy hair. So for hair type, CC gives curly, Cs gives wavy and ss gives straight hair. Back to your specific situation. As you can probably tell, the couple you describe could only have wavy haired kids. That is because the curly headed parents, CC, can only contribute a C gene and the straight haired parent, only an s gene. That means all the kids will be Cs and have wavy hair. Of course, wavy and curly is in the eye of the beholder! If your curly headed person actually had wavy hair, he or she would be a Cs. A wavy haired person can contribute either a C or an s gene. If paired to a straight haired person (ss), then the kids would either have straight (ss) or wavy hair (Cs). That is probably way more than you wanted to know! For eye color, I'll refer you to two questions we've answered previously. The first is a description of traditional eye color inheritance that will work well for your case. The second is a nice description about how the genetics rules are sometimes broken.

If curly hair is genetic why do you have curly hair if none of your ancestors did?
The answer to your question may lie in the way that hair-type genes are inherited. First, a review of some basic genetics stuff. For most genes, you have two copies of each gene that you inherited from your mother and father. For most "traditional" genes, there is a dominant and recessive version. This all has to do with gene expression and phenotype, or what you actually end up looking like. If at least one dominant version of the gene is present, it will be expressed regardless of what the other is. The only way the recessive version will be expressed is if the dominant version isn't present. This holds true for some simple traits like whether earlobes are attached or not, where the free earlobe allele is dominant (noted as "E") and the attached (noted as "e")allele is recessive. So if at least one of your parents had free earlobes (Ee or EE), you'll have free earlobes. EDIT: if both you're parent have free ear lobes you can still get attached ear lobes in the case that there heterozygous dominate. because if both parent are Ee then you have 1/4 chance of getting ee. So why don't you see your hair-type in your parents or grandparents? Well, hair-type doesn't follow the nice and simple pattern of inheritance. Hair-type follows a type of inheritance pattern known as "incomplete dominance". Like the earlobe gene, there are two versions of the hair-type gene, curly (noted as C) and straight (noted as s). The incomplete dominance refers to the fact that if you have one of each version of the gene, you get a mix of the two or, in this case, wavy hair. So for hair type, CC gives curly, Cs gives wavy and ss gives straight hair. Without a better family history, all I can tell you is that it is possible that the curly version of the gene was carried by both of you parents as "Cs," or wavy-type. The same could also be true of your parents parents, but beyond that it gets really unlikely that "none of your ancestors" had curly-type hair. Of course, it's also possible that your curly hair might actually be wavy, or wavy-type. Outside the world of genes, wavy and curly are really just in the eye of the beholder. ______ While some regard curly hair on the head as a "mutation" and straight hair as the "norm" a deeper look might suggest that the opposite is the truth. Humans are believed to have originated in Africa, and to have spread from there to the rest of the world. If one looks at a typical African native one will see a person with tightly curled black hair, in a typical "Afro" style (if left to grow naturally). It is suggested this type of hair, black, tightly curled, and "bouffant" is a result of natural selection, which is due to at least 3 reasons, though the weight given to each reason is open to argument. 1. Black hair is good at absorbing Ultra-violet, thus helping to prevent skin cancer on the scalp. 2. The tight almost "brillo pad" effect is good at keeping sun light off the head, to prevent overheating. 3. The natural "weave" of the hair is open, allowing air to circulate, aiding cooling. It is then further suggested that as these "proto-humans" left Africa and colonized the rest of the world the above 3 reasons to have black, tightly curled hair actually became a disadvantage. 1. The UV levels fell, as did the average temperature. Clothing was worn to keep warm. Humans need UV exposure to produce Vitamin-D. Those with a less protective hair type were better able to produce vitamin-D. There are also theories (unproven) that blond straight hair hanging down is favored in cold countries at it has a "fiber optic" effect, catching sun-light reflected off the snow, and feeding it to the scalp. 2. The "heating" effect of the sun was reduced, less need for "solar insulation." 3. The colder climate favored a hair type that insulated the head from the cold, rather than allowed active cooling, as most heat is lost from the head. Hence, having straight hair is actually the "mutation," and having curly hair is normal, so at some point ALL of your ancestors had curly hair, afro Style.

Asked in Hair
If a child has blond hair and both of her parents have brown hair what does that tell you about the allele for blond hair?
Both of the parents were heterozygous with the blonde hair allele, which is recessive. When there are two parents that are heterozygous, there is a 25% chance their offspring will get two of the recessive alleles. A punnett square can be useful when determining the different phenotypes and genotypes possible in offspring
