I've been observing my hair and on many strands, at different points, there's a crinkle. The crinkle is generally about a centimeter long and feels rough and looks discernibly different from the rest of the strand. These crinkles are at various points of the strands; most, however, are near the ends. They really mess with any sort of curl pattern and I'm not really sure where they came from. I'll try to post a pic because I did a search and it seemed like someone with relaxed hair had a similar problem but people said it was their hair type. This is not about my hair feeling wiry or dry or hard. It's about these magical crinkles so unless hair type changes sporadically throughout a single strand, I highly doubt that these crinkles are related to my hair type. Has anyone else dealt with these before? Does anyone know where they come from? It seems like I might have to cut to get rid of them (which I am not ready to do) but are there any temporary solutions?
