: Hair breakage or new growth?
This is a copy and paste of my first post that nobody has replied to so I'm hoping that someone out there has dealt with this issue before and has great tips. I just want to know so I can stop cutting the funny looking hairs if they're not broken.
I'm not exactly a curly head I'm more of a wavy head. My hair is between 2b and 2c and about 27 in long. I've been hennaing and indigoing it since oct and it's nice, black and very shiny. What drove me to do henna and to find this forum was that a noticed a lot of short hairs on my crown from 1 to 2 in long that looked like they had been electrocuted kind of like zig zag shaped. I thought that they were broken hairs so i cut them off and then there's more. I'm not sure if they're the same ones or different ones or new growth if they're broken hairs or if that's just how they're shaped. A little bit of my background. My mothers side has fine or medium wavy hair and my dads side they all have fros. Is it possible that these are not broken hairs and just different type of hairs? When i do the curly girl method and wear my hair natural i don't see them but when i wash with a non sulfate shampoo and blow dry i see them.. Also i noticed that theres weirdly shaped shorter hair all over when i blowdry..Please help.
