Growing out and into trouble

Hi,
I've been growing my hair out from a buzzcut for about 5 months now and in the last 2 months i have been concerned with a few things.

First of all, i've been noticing small hairs falling out alot.
Just going through it with my hands, or combing it with a wide tooth comb in the shower.
Often they're just shed hairs, but even more often they're small, like half length or less, hairs with a little white bulp in the end.
Is this breakage? Try to see if you can tell from the pictures.

Also, i have no idea how to style my hair.
All my life ive been sort of "fighting" the curls because i never liked my ringly curl type, i always thought it doesnt suit me. I wore hats a lot and when my hair got longer they sort of layed nicely.
Since my hair isnt long enough for it to hang down on it's own i have to style it somehow .
What i do now is, i comb my wet hair with a wide tooth comb and part it. Then i wait for about 10 minutes and Blow dry(with a nozzle) it with COLD air while i comb it with my fingers, so that it doesnt curl up too much and lays alright.

This is like a 50/50 game and sometimes it looks good and sometimes just horrible.
anyway, i hope you guys can give me some tips.
The pictures are from today's wash, with bad result.
The lighting is altered.

Big thanks!

I'm not an expert or anything but I've read in a couple different places that if you're seeing the white bulb on the end of the strand then it is shedding and not breakage. So I don't think you have to worry too much about that. Maybe you can try hair clips, flowers/bows, or headband if you are going for a more feminine look, but I don't know your personal style so that is a bit hard to answer. I had a short cute like 1 or 2 inches all over a few years ago and when I decided I was over it I just wore it pulled back in headbands until it was long enough for some baby pigtails. Hope this helps some.
Yeah that's what i thought too, but they're so tiny sometimes, like a fifth of my normal length. weird.
Haha, should have said so in the post but, im a guy so i wouldn't run around with flowers in my hair.
But im looking for a style that loosens my curl a bit without making it dry or causing breakage.
