Why is my hair getting shorter?

I have been straightening my hair once a week for the past 5 years and only in late August last year have i stopped and began taking care of ym curls. Recently I straightened my hair again for a photo day at school and I noticed that my hair has shortened significantly in length. My last hair cut was in 2014 and I just don't understand what happened or what to do????

Teamoma- Your hair probably is getting shorter due to breakage. When you don't take proper care of your curls they can become so dry and brittle to the point that they break off :(. Straightening so often can make the problem even worse because of the heat damage. I would suggest  you to stop straightening as often (if you can) and cut off the damaged parts before it affects the rest of your hair. Here are some other tips! http://www.kinkycurlycoilyme.com/5-ways-to-stop-ha...Good luck! :)
