Default Is my hair super damaged?

Hi,

So recently I have been looking a bit into high and low porosity and figured that my hair can't be too damaged because I have never colored it (had highlights about 3 years ago) and that's it. However, it does feel a bit bumpy when I follow the end of my hair up to my root. And lately, when a hair falls out and I examine it, it looks like it is thinner in some parts and sometimes even seems to be colorless in some parts. Any idea what this means? Is that a completely broken spot in my hair? It's difficult to describe... I have brown hair, and it looks like every now and then in my hair there is a blond spot. It's hard to see, too, I only noticed it after looking at one hair individually and holding it against different backgrounds, etc.

Any idea if this is an indication of something?

Hi!

Genetics can also cause high porosity. It's not always damage. I've NEVER dyed my hair, never had any chemical treatments, RARELY straightened my hair (once a year maybe?), and never blow-dried my hair. So I expected I would be low porosity, yet I am medium porosity.

The lighter color might be UV damage though. I'm a natural blonde and I have a lot of different shades of blonde in my hair. That's because of the sun.
