35 Amazing Asian Medium Hairstyles To Check Out

Asian hairstyles, along with Asian culture as a whole, are making strides in the beauty industry today. Their culture is quite different from that of the Western nations and it is quite evident through their lifestyle itself.

Taking the example of hairstyles itself, it is widely known the fact that Asian women are adored for their flawless hair with silk-like texture. Most Asians also tend to have hair that is straight and smooth rather than coarse or textured hair.

The thickness and thinness, of course, depend on the genes of each person but other than that, Asians have gorgeous hair. Regarding this, we have listed about 35 different Asian hairstyles that everyone should check out.

Is Asian hair thicker?

Asian hair is typically characterized as thicker and stronger when compared to other types of hair due to the thicker hair cuticles and follicle diameter.

Compared to Caucasian hair, your East Asian hair has a diameter twice the size. Most hair types, such as Caucasian hair, has about five layers of cuticles, while East Asian hair has closer to ten layers of cuticles, providing extra thickness.


Can Asian hair be permed?

Even though Asian hair is often thicker than Caucasian hair, it can still be permed as desired. Since the hair is thicker, the chemicals may need to sit on the strands for longer to penetrate through every layer of the hair cuticle.

You may prefer a digital perm to a traditional perm because the digital perm makes a more prominent wave on dry hair, while a traditional perm creates stronger waves on wet hair. Digital perms take longer and cost more, but the curls are large and often look more natural on Asian hair types.


Does Asian hair grow faster?

Compared to other hair types, such as Caucasian and African hair, Asian hair has the highest growth rate. Most Asian hair grows at a rate of about 1.4 centimeters each month, or about 6 inches per year.  In comparison, Caucasian hair grows about four inches per year.


Does Asian hair need conditioner?

Maintain healthy hair and keep the hair cuticles tight on your Asian hair with conditioner, which prevents frizz when your hair is dry.

The best way to apply conditioner is from halfway down the hair shaft to the ends, leaving the area around the roots untouched, which will prevent extra oil buildup on the scalp.


Why is Asian hair different?

Asian hair has wider cuticle cells and more layers of hair cuticles, making the hair thicker. It’s also known to be straighter and darker than many other hair types.

There are also notable differences in how the cuticle cells fail – Asian hair breaks as large pieces in their original shape, while Caucasian hair cuticles fail and form fragments since they are more fragile than Asian hair cuticles.


We hope you love this list and make sure you try out the one that is best suitable for you. If you love these hairstyles and also want hair like them lovely Asian ladies, do check out the many tips and tricks to get perfect hair.

Asians are leading in the beauty industry so you are sure to find many easy remedies at a very less cost also.
