I found 3 types of end - fibrillated (i.e snapped), cut and tapered. From the hundreds of hairs that I looked at, only one was tapered.
|Fibrillated end - hair has been broken/snapped|
|Cut end - smooth straight cut from previous trim|
|Tapered - naturally weathered end|
My hair is quite disappointing (yay!) when it comes to damage. I did not have many obvious flaws in the hair shaft. I did not find any split ends but I did find this mid shaft split which I thought was blog worthy.
