The general rule for textured hair is the curlier your strands, the more fragile and prone to breakage they are.  Your hair is probably growing, but not retaining length because of breakage.  I've found that the less I manipulate my hair, the more length I retain.  Give yourself a break from the frustration of daily styling by protective styling, with or without extensions.  Two strand twisting or braiding your own strands every 2 to 3 weeks will definitely boost your length retention.  If you're twisting, be sure and braid the roots before twisting to ensure that your twists lay smoothly and stay longer.
