Dumb Alert! What does it mean..

when people say "your hair breaks?" Does it break off? Like, a twig, in two? I've pondered this for awhile. WHat causes it? And why are the hair number and letters more prone to it?

I'm a 3a/b is my hair breakable? How can I protect it?

When people talk about breakage, it can mean a variety of things and usually comes from a variety of factors.

There is the snap-in-two type like you mentioned, but it could also split up the shaft from a split end or stretch to its limit and eventually break. This could lead to a split end or just a very sad hair. Breakage is damage.

Any kind of mistreatment will cause curly hair to break--I don't think it has anything to do with hair type or curl pattern. Heat damage, violent combing/brushing (especially when dry), too much protein, and lack of moisture can all lead to breakage.

Keeping your hair healthy and being gentle with it will help prevent breakage. Your hair should have a certain amount of flexibility on its own.
