Trichoclasis is a type of hair breakage characterized by more or less extensive patches of broken hair about a centimeter long. It is located mainly on the vertex and on the front of the head.

Trichoclasis occurs when the end of the hair is split or cracked in two along its length. A fork appears at the end or tip of the hair, so to speak. At this point, the hair is split and dried out. In some cases, the end of the damaged hair ends in three branches.
