Some people just get wirey hairs. Try vitamins or ask your gp.
Hair can be affected by medical issues and they will appear at different points along the shaft. Think of an archeological dig and the layers of dirt they sift through. You dig deeper and you are going back through time.
Hair grows from the scalp over time at a rate of approximately a 1/2 inch a month. As you look down the shaft you can almost determine when each location was being created. Many things can cause those "bends" over time. Dehydration, dieting, use of drugs or alcohol, or just poor nutrition.
I had a friend who would started new fad diet every 6 months and we saw the same bends in her hair every 3 inches. :)
Ethnicity....what heritage are you. Not what color are you. That can matter. I am Irish/German, hubby is Italian/Israeli. Our hair is very different from each other. I personally use Lush products, their solid shampoo and conditioner last about 2-2 1/2 mos. and are $7-$9 each and it leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable.
