Like two days split up. But taking them down one at a time and redoing took a few hours out of three days.

But yeah, obvious breakage is going on and you will have to baby those ends. Always keeping it stretched like rummy suggested (even during wash time), moisturized, sealed, PS styling like updos (they don't need to be damaging to your edges unless you pick those certain hairstyles) and leaving it alone for a few months will get you past your SL plateau.

what makes u say this?
I don't think breaking is the problem....thats what I thought at first until I analyzed my hairs and a majority of it was shedding with a few broken bits here and there


youd be better off starting with the premise that you hair is indeed breaking than anything else, since that is most likely problem.  sure you can believe its a medical issue but that probably not true unless you have other health issues to go along with it.

pretty much every thing you do is either going to cause breakage or has the potential to cause breakage.  your job is just to limit the amount.

i would probably start with finding out you hair's porosity, so that youll know the correct way to keep you hair moisturized and balanced. id learn how to comb or detangle, eliminate all accessories and tools the cause breakage and then id practice protective styling.

im going to try again

When it comes to moisture retention, you are better off using synthetic hair than yarn.  

Try keeping styles in longer all while moisturising the ends like crazy. 

Also change your combing methods.  I know people who comb away their progress (wrong technique and tools)

My slow butt took forever to get back in here. My bad.Embarrassed

A lot of women hit plateaus at the SL stage so you are not alone. Your hair is rubbing on your collars, scarves and the top of your shoulders and that can cause breakage and snagging which might explain why you see hairs with the bulb on the end. At this stage you may have to baby your ends and edge area by making sure they are moisturized/sealed and minimizing contact on your shoulder area reducing the risk of breakage and snagging.

i believe i have issue with retention also. My hair get to mid bra length and then refuses to do anything else.  and by the time it gets there the ends are much much much thinner than my roots. i just want a health root to tip.

Thumbs UpAhhh, I see. I just read through everything.

I would give it at least 6+ months (2-3 inches) of hair growth using some of the advice in here such as keeping your ends moisturized and protected in PS styles, especially during winter when hair gets dry. Twist outs, puffs and wearing your hair out may lead to hair tangling and breakage. I would stay away from wearing your hair out and try wearing updos for a few months that keep your ends stretched and protected.
