Answer. Caucasian and African hair have the same hair density (number of hair per inch), whereas Asian hair has the lowest density. People of African descent have more delicate hair that is more susceptible to breakage. African hair is most of time tightly coiled (it grows in a spring-like shape). Asians have the thickest, most coarse, and almost always straight hair. Caucasian hair can be straight, wavy or curly and is most of the time thinner than Asian hair.
