    Is there also a reason why Caucasians would have more strands?

    I can just say its genetic and there is also a difference between blondes and various dark hairs. Blondes have usually finer and more hair per inch, while thicker, coarser hair is more common in specific West Eurasian populations. Usually those which are generally more hairy, like around the Caucasus and Iran, or with respective ancestry from these groups (Iranian Neolithic ancestry).

    Minar explains that your hair color signifies how many strands you have on your head at any given time. For example, Asian and African American women, who tend to have black hair, have on average 60,000 strands at a time. Women with blond hair, on the other hand, have on average 450,000. Red and brunette hair falls somewhere in between. The lighter the hair, the more strand

    Incidentally, and just a guess, possibly some of the distinctive shape of eyes found among Northwest Europeans (and elsewhere where higher steppe input is found) may have come from the Indo-Europeans, or be influenced by them somehow. The ones with the least steppe, like Sardinians, don't seem to show it. I'm referring to the shape of eyes similar to that of this Russian, Sergei Pugachev, for example:

    I think its generally related to Mesolithic forager ancestry and low, rectangular orbits. You can see it in fairly unmixed Berbers too for example:

    Makes sense. Makes you wonder if Indo-Europeans got it from their WHG, ANE or ENA ancestry? I would bet on WHG.

    Most of the Northern derived Mesolithic foragers had rather broad faces with low, rectangular orbits, that's true from Siberia to North Africa. I wouldn't restrict it to any particular subgroup of that time.
