I'm a stylist....

Actually, that little kink is a type of split. It's just not a Y shaped split. Depending on how you treat your hair and your hairs' natural tendency to split, it can happen often, or not so much. Consider yourself lucky that it doesn't happen quickly for you! Congrats!

I often advise my clients to do just what you said you do....when you see the kinks and the ends feel dry and crackly come in for a trim. HTH!
