If you are having a breakage issues, bleaching your hair is only going to add to the problem. You should never chemically process hair that is breaking & splitting on its own.

Maybe you aren't handling your hair gently enough? Maybe you need to try new products?

You mentioned that the winter has been dry, & from your hair regimen, I don't see any moisturizers listed. I see conditioner, but I know that conditioner only isn't enough for my hair. You might be having the same problem. My advice is to find a good moisturizer. Maybe you can try the baggy method to see if it helps you out. I know some of the ladies can recommend good moisturizers. I'm not CG, so I never really do product recommendations.

Good luck!

When I mention bleaching I wanted to do ten strands tops so that I can track growth via the darken roots. Not the whole head like you implying if you read my point carefully you would notice I said “I thinking I might get a few strands bleached” I just to see what the rate of growth per month. If you can suggest a better way to measure growth from the root I am all ears.

Well I am not big on product suggestions but techniques are always great. But hell why not what lotions can you suggest? Please note that I hate product buildup, I will not use any product that stinks, or has a lot alcohol or moisture strippers or changes the feel of my hair (making it rough, sticky, ridged or tacky). That's how a lot of products failed in the past.
Oh don't forget that I live in Canada so it has to be local last time I order skin product online duties and taxes bled me.

As far as suggestions for moisturizers, I use Carefree Curl Activator. It doesn't stink to me, but I don't know how you would feel about it. I know it is readily available in BSS & Drugstores here in the states. I buy things that are easy for me to access. I don't do online shopping for hair products. It has cones in it but you said you use cones, so shouldn't be an issue for you there. I don't have issues with build up either.
