It was split like all the way down the way. I just thought I'd share it with you guys lol

that's very different. When mine fall out it looks like a rull of the mill strand. I've got some breakage and shedding but I have no idea what would cause that.

That is the only hair I have ever seen look like that come off my head. They are usually pretty healthy. But it goes to show what a long hair can go through

Ouch, that is insane. This is scarier than the time I found a hair with 4 or 5 splits.

Wow, that's pretty amazing!

I know, I mean it split so many times and just kept growing. I don't know whether to think I have strong or weak hair lol

A hair centipede! I've shed a few of those myself :eek:

A hair centipede! I've shed a few of those myself :eek:

centipede is the first word that came to my head when i saw that.

Anyone know what causes these type of splits? Is it friction?
OP was this at the bottom of hair that you snipped off or did it fall out from somewhere?

Most likely a hair that was pulled through a tangle and run through a very tight bend. Same process as curling ribbon over a scissor blade.

It came out in the shower.

That is one brutal split hair (I was about to write "split end" but its not really accurate in this case) youve got there :neutral:

That's the coolest split end I've seen.

That'd be scary if it came off of my head... :eek: But kind of neat unfortunately... Makes me want to play millipede... Dunno why though...

I have found a few nearly that bad. Not often though, thankfully.

Yikes! Maybe its not a head hair!!?:p

Woah! Just seeing that in a picture made me feel all weird :lol:

Whoa, that one is a mutant! Pretty cool looking, I'm surprised it was able to split that many times.

That is so cool looking! I would've been so fascinated and a little bit scared to find that haha!

scary like spider leg scary, but I'm impressed!!

Wow that's freaky.

Did you save it? It would be too strange for me to just throw it away...

February 3rd, 2014, 06:44 AM
Ooh weird. Kinda gives me the heeebie jeebies!

Looks like it grew lashes. :lol:

I counted 29 splits! That's crazy. :)

Now THAT can feed my hair related nightmares for weeks!:demon:

Pretty cool, though!

That is so creepy :shudder:

Goosebumps! Lol that thing is insane. I have a roommate whose hair I find all over the place (even in my bedroom, which she never enters :confused:) and I once found a very similar split hair. I was about to freak out until I realized it was too long and dark to be mine :p

bunzfan
February 3rd, 2014, 08:53 AM
That is so creepy :shudder:

That's how i felt :lol:

I've had two of those before, but all of the 14 splits were at the end inch or two of the hair. Amazing how it never broke off, huh? XD

That is really interesting! I have never seen that before!!

JessicaAnn

That is impressive, seriously.

Looks like it grew lashes. :lol:

I was thinking something similar, almost looks like false eyelashes!

Audhumla
February 3rd, 2014, 11:15 AM
Wow . . .
For whatever reason I really like looking at split ends. My hair is pretty fine and if my hair splits it only reaches 1 or 2mm max from the end of the strand before it breaks off completely.
This reminds me of some of the monster splits that I find my boyfriend's rat tail when I S&D for him.

February 3rd, 2014, 11:20 AM
Wow!

I'm still not convinced you don't have half a centipede there.

Errant
February 3rd, 2014, 12:08 PM
Really bizarre! Are you itching to go on a S&D mission to see if you can find more? It looks like it got stretched/pulled across something sharp. Like someone else said, along the lines of curling ribbon.

NuclearApple

:o so weird but so cool! Never seen a hair like that! :D

Ocelan
February 3rd, 2014, 12:24 PM
Eeek! Run, run away! Now I think that thing is going to get me in my sleep... :tmi:

Wosie
February 3rd, 2014, 12:47 PM
It reminds me of eyelashes. :o I don't think I've ever seen a hair like that either, and I saw lots of interesting hairs on my scalp when it was long (hip). =D

Never seen a hair like that. Didn't even know a hair could split like that.

You should send it to Pantene and complain that their shampoo didn't REPAIR your split ends as advertised!

Coolest split ever though.

walterSCAN
February 3rd, 2014, 04:57 PM
Wow. Creepy!!!

With the way the splits are so regularly spaced for the most part, I'm almost wondering if that hair got caught in a zipper or something?

ErinLeigh
February 3rd, 2014, 05:29 PM
That's a good observation actually.

spidermom
February 3rd, 2014, 05:45 PM
Been there, had those, except some of the little splits sticking out were also split. The longer my hair gets, the more doozies like that I see.

I've found hairs that almost look that bad. I'm pretty sure they were from being snagged on something.

RapunzelKat

Haha, that is one wild split! :bigeyes: My vote is for really strong, it must be seriously sturdy to split that many times before giving up! :bounce:

This is a such a good observation and definitely something to think about!

Thanks for the laugh! You have a great sense of humor.

Wow, I've never seen one like that.. :disbelief It does look like a centipede though :) Well, at least it's just one hair...

So THIS is actually a hair monster.
Sometimes I find some bad splits, like 5-6 splits to the same hair, but only to the ends, never seen something like this.
But I quote RapunzelKat:

My vote is for really strong, it must be seriously sturdy to split that many times before giving up!
So it couldn't be so bad, I think it means your hair is a bad*ss!
