Being half Chinese, half English, I’ve found that both mentally and physically I don’t quite fit in with either crowd. I’m 100% British and have lived in England for my whole life but I am quite obviously Asian just from looking at me. In England, a lot of people assume that I’m fully Chinese (which only makes me more frustrated with the stereotype that all Oriental people look the same!) but this is just wrong, wrong, wrong. In China, nobody thinks I’m Chinese. They don’t even think I’m half Chinese. People usually guess that I’m Russian or Mongolian, thinking that I must come from the border between East and West. My eyes a lot bigger than those of most of my Asian friends and my body shape is far from that stereotypical petite Chinese frame. However, I do have very fine, thin Asian hair (except my hair colour is brown, not black). A real mix as you can see.
Here are three hair care struggles that only Oriental people will understand and a few tips on how to combat them:VIEW STORY »
