This would work fine, except in terms of success.

A contraption that freezes hair with liquid nitrogen, so you can break it instead of cutting it. New hair styles will develop.

       Why, but then why not. Though I wonder what the remaining hair will be like when it thaws.

       Would hair become that brittle? I don't remember my jeans shattering when I spilled LN down the front (then wiggled them around to stop my jewels getting too cold).

       [st3f] why were you pouring LN down your pants?

       because he's multi-faceted.

       I was standing on a chair next to the electron microscope, trying to top up the... ah never mind, po's answer is funnier.

       Very odd indeed. Not the idea, the comments.

       I don't think this will work very well.

       I have a mental picture of freezing a huge afro and breaking it up with a hammer. +1

       I'm nore clear that freeezing hair with liquid nitrogen would necessarily make it brittle. The only reference I could find was to dry ice, and the "expert" clearly hadn't actually tried it out.   

       Someone needs to do some field research and report back!

       I'm sure this is called "split ends".

       I was actually wondering today what would happen if the sebum on hair froze, and what its freezing point was. Come to think of it, would it vapourise in a vacuum?
