Examples: "The high-street favourite has now launched a new Afro hair care range made with natural vegan ingredients." and "Formulated by in-house Black haircare specialist Sarah Sango, the new range has been created especially for curly, coily and textured Black hair."Completely unacceptable! Are you sure your mother tongue is Russian?
We need a full sentence to tell you how to word it
So does this refer to the race, rather than the hair colour? Sounds ambiguous in your English examples. I cannot think of any conventional way of referring to race specific hair type in Russian. Негритянские волосы? Not really a common thing in this neck of the woods.curly, coily and textured Black hair."
That's why I wanted to ask. Yes this referring to race. Like, specifically Black people's hairSo does this refer to the race, rather than the hair colour? Sounds ambiguous in your English examples. I cannot think of any conventional way of referring to race specific hair type in Russian. Негритянские волосы? Not really a common thing in this neck of the woods.
"Black" is capitalized when it refers to race. It's a newer convention in the U.S. So in both sentences "Afro hair" and "Black hair" refers to hair of Black people, not hair that is black in color. I know it's very uncommon in Russia which is why I don't know the appropriate term... I've seen both "афро-волосы" и "черные волосы" written in Russian when referring to race, but not sure if that translation was correct either. Because "черные волосы" sounds like black color hair. And "афро волосы" just doesn't sound right. Don't knowI have no idea why "Black" is capitalized. Does it refer to the race or what's up?
We usually say "тёмные волосы": this and that для тёмных волос.
But again it all depends on what you want to say. The English examples are peculiar. For example, the first one refers to the race. Well, this would be a very unusual thing to say in Russia.
Yes, you can say "чёрные волосы". For "dark hair" we say "тёмные волосы". "Black hair" (in itself) doesn't mean "aфро-волосы" in Russian.How to say it correctly in Russian? Черные волосы? (or would that mean just the color black) Афро-волосы? What is acceptable?
