Asian hair heterogeneity[edit]

In the table of hair types, type 1c (coarse straight hair) had the notation "Most Asian women fall into this category". I changed this to "Most East Asians fall into this category" because coarse straight hair is characteristic of both sexes in the most populous parts of East Asia (e.g. China, Japan) but not in other parts of Asia (e.g. India, central Asia). The original terminology may reflect the common usage in the USA of "Asian" to mean East Asian, which may be confusing to readers from other countries, e.g. UK, where "Asian" is often taken to mean South Asian.CharlesHBennett (talk) 18:40, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
