View Full Version : Right angled ends

I was doing an S & D when I noticed that some of my ends are like right angles. Assuming this was damage, I snipped them off above the bend. Has anyone had this before?

Incidentally, I've found the best place to S & D is right in front of the monitor, they really show up there against the light :)

Yep I have them too sometimes and cut them off. Here's a great picture to show that damage can have many forms, not just splitends:

Interesting! I didn't realize there were so many different kinds...

Eeeks, when I am bored and do S&D, not a regular. I find basically most of the types you show :D
:mad:Hair dyes can do that, from hair that can grow without trimming for a couple of years and stay healthy to this...

@Arctic, Wow! great illustrations! and i find all of them in my hair sometimes :(
@Jorja, Another great place to s&d is in the car; when somebody else is driving, that is ;-)

I've seen the picture before, but I forgot that when the hair is angled it's damaged too. Now I have more to cut.

Arctic,
Thanks for posting the detailed pictures of all the different types of damage since I had not seen this before. This will help quite a bit for my next S&D session.

Wow! Thats amazing Arctic thanks! I also had the thickening thing but I though I just had deformed hair lol. It looks like an alphabet for a new language.

Now S & D can be fun, like bingo!

:lol: It does!
I have lots of bent hairs. I usually leave them alone and hope that they'll straighten up on their own or something. :silly:

The bent ones can't travel up like splits, can they?

I think they can cause other hairs to tangle and that might cause damage and splits, also they might break and the breaking point might develop a split that can travel up.

You're welcome! I haven't drawn that chart, just bookmarked it after seeing it here somewhere :) It sure does look like runes or alphabets!

I also like S&D, it's almost meditative if you sit in a comfortable chair :laugh: :meditate:

Good point, I usually find the bent ones with the tangles.
I'll start S&Ding them and see if my hair tangles less (it doesn't tangle much now, but less is always better). :)

Yeahh, I notice lots of different damage in my hair, probably because my strands are thick, i often get right angles.

Need to get myself a good :scissors: and the go search for all those types of damaged hairs. I was not aware there were so many different kinds.

My NYE resolution is not to cut or trim my hair 2009 (remove damaged hairs can't count as a cut or trim, can it?) and then I really think it will be important to find the damaged ones....

Ugh, I get tons of bent ones, sometimes at right angles, others that kink 180. I think they're caused by little knotty tangles (usually involving lint), and they seem to catch on other hairs and reproduce.

I don't think wetting mine down unkinks them, so I tend to cut them off. If anyone can suggest a good way to unkink bent hairs, I'm definitely interested, because they're probably my #1 length destroyer.

The only thing in the image I disagree with is the taper one. Tapered hair is most often new growth, it would be too bad if that gets snipped off ;)

Yes, I have found right angles in my hair before. I also assumed they were damage.

Thanks to Arctic for the very helpful split end chart. I will definitely use it when I start doing S & D.

When I find bent ends, they're usually hooked on other bent ends, and I snip the whole tangle off. I've found very few of those lately.:)

True, but I know in my own hair, if the tapered hair is long enough for me to find during an S&D, it's tapered from damage.

No, but if you have too many of them in your hair, it's runed! :D
