your hair just might be getting use to being more natural. give it time. When i first went cg my hair didn't grow for a year and my hair freaked out about no sulfates and cones for 6 months. Also soon as its long enough to get in a pony tail put it up alot. they say hair will be stuck at the shoulders if you don't put it up alot. tee shirts and stuff rub the ends and i guess that isnt good.
