    Default Question about S&Ding?

    What kind of hairs do you generally opt to trim out? Only splits, or the ones that are bent up too? I asked the lady at Sally's if the ones that we bent were bad ends and she said no. But I usually trim those off too. What do you guys do?

    if it's bent, like literally at a 90 degree angle, I cut it because it's surely going to break and make a split soon I figure, but I leave it if it's bent in a curvy sort of way. And then of course I trim splits and the uglier looking white dot ends (It's too much work to get all of them! I have splitty hair )

    Sometimes I can see a clearly weak spot in the bent ones and I'll trim that off, otherwise I leave it be.

    I only snip split ends and white dots. Have never seen a bent hair.

    Does everyone have white dots on their hair, or could it be that my eyesight is so bad that I've never seen them?

    I clip white dots,splits, and bent hairs. Hairs that have weakened spots. I go over board on mine so make sure if you s&d you don't clip ends of grown out layers or breakage like I did I'm finally growing that out.

    If there's a sharp angle, I trim it. It's going to turn into a split eventually.

    Beezle - Well, it doesn't seem like there is anything that is true of everyone. You might just not get that kind of split. I do see white dots occasionally.

    Thanks lilin. I really wasn't sure so I appreciate your answer. It could easily be that they're there and I can't see them but for now I'll tell myself I don't have them. It's easier than the alternative

    I have fine hair that has been bleached, so I get a lot of bends and white dots. I also have hairs that look like they are thin at the ends, so I SandD all of these. I find if my ends are crackily my s an d turns into a trim Sand Ding takes a lot of self restraint (I find)

    I don't think everyone gets them- some people don't even get splits (lucky ones ) but if you're wondering, they are much more visible in sunlight I think. If you can't see them though, I bet you're just lucky and have really healthy ends!
