Why isn't my hair growing?
I love my hair and I almost have all of the damaged hair cut away from the last time I used heat (a week before Thanksgiving) but I noticed that my hair isn't really attaining any length. It's frustrating to no end and I don't know what to do! I have 3c hair in the back, 4a hair behind my ears, and 3b hair in the front. I use the curly girl method on my hair. I pre-poo before every wash then try to deep condition (always running out). When I get out of the shower I let my hair dry for a couple minutes (it takes a LOT of water to wet my hair but it drys very quickly) in a towel then put in coconut oil, leave-in conditioner, and lastly a curl enhancing cream (I go between DevaCurl SuperCream and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie). Then I put my hair in a braid-out, put on a hair bonnet, and let it out in the morning. Now I thought that it could be my ends brushing against my shoulders so I've been using up-dos on a weekly basis and other protective styles, but it hasn't made any difference. My hair is the healthiest it has every been and I have a lot more volume but the length is the same. I don't know what to do and I'm at my wits end. PLEASE HELP.
