Default How Can You Tell if You Have Heat Damage?

Hi, ladies. Just wondering. I mean, my curls are still intact, but my twists have hairs coming out of them. Is this normal? Are these split ends or heat damage? Any recommendations?
Help, please!

"Hairs coming out"....are they short or long? Long strands are usually shed hairs, with a little white bulb at the top where they used to be connected to the follicle. Those are nothing to worry about. Everybody sheds about 100 hairs a day. Short strands are breakage. Here's some more info on heat and other types of damage....

thanks so much for replying! i have short, and considering that i've just mini-chopped the back, i guess it's just where i need to go back over with the shears. i also find that i easily get single strand knots, which could also be part of the problem. i'll definitely read that link! thanks again!
