How can I retain length ?

I have 3c hair I believe  and I've been trying to grow my hair but it doesn't seem to be retaining length. Is there anything I can do to help protect my ends ? I like to wear my hair out most of the time. Will pre pooing help ? How do I even do that lol ?

First, your hair is gorgeous. I'm not big on protective styling nor do I believe its the only solution to retaining length. From looking at your pictures it looks like your hair sometimes, maybe, touches your clothing which could be the source of the problem. If you're deep conditioning on the regular, have a regular trim schedule; like faithfully trimming every 2-3 months, and moisturizing your ends you should be able to retain length.
