I say S&D, maybe you are growing as they say fairytale ends? Maybe strnghten your hair, moisturize it.

maybe getting a trim could end it...just do a little one and see if it improves, then if you need to do more you could.

Personally I would let it grow to TB ,thin ends and all and once you get ther if the thin ends bother you maintain TB for a while until there gone. I second trying S&D. Are your ends dry? do you use heat? There is a reason their breaking off.

Do you always cut back to waist, then let it grow without cutting to tailbone, where the ends are thin? If that's the case, I also suggest just cutting off a little bit, maybe 1-2 cm, and keep your hair at that tailbone length, trimming off all the growth every month. I think you should see it start to thicken up with time. Or keep it a little bit above tailbone if you want somewhat thicker ends, but keep trimming to that length for a while.

My ends always thin out and dry out if I grow without trimming. I get best results by trimming a little bit off the ends every 3 months or so. I'm talking no more than 1/4 to 1/2 inch per trim, unless I see a lot of damage, then I'll trim more. I've got some really fast growing hairs because every time I trim, there will be the few odd hairs that are 1-2 inches longer than any other hairs.

yes they are growing like fairytale ends .my real concern is about why my hair start shedding alot when they goes below my waist?? yes i cut them off at waist length everytime because they fall madly :s

Hmmm. That's interesting and you're the second person I've seen claim that recently.

Is your circumference actually decreasing if you let your hair get that long? Are you shedding more full-length hairs? Or could it possibly be that it looks like more shed hair simply because the ones that shed out are longer (seems unlikely to freak out someone who already has had at least waist-length, but seems to regularly terrify people growing from pixie to shoulder for the first time)?

I'm wondering if perhaps you're getting to the terminal length of the hairs around that point and so they grow to TB and then shed out. However, if you cut to waist, those hairs would still shed out because the time that the follicle has been producing hair is the deciding factor, not the hair length.... Forgive me, I'm just trying to figure out how this would work while typing.


I'd say to monitor your circumference for a while, see if it actually gets thinner at the nape if you get to TB. Also make a note of the time of year it is when you reach it. If you grow fast enough to reach TB in a year or so, I could see you having a seasonal shed pattern that happens to line up with your growth and cutting cycle.

The increased shedding might be because a lot of your hairs reach the end of their growth cycle around tailbone length. There's not much you can do about that, I'm afraid. Every hair on every head will only grow for so long before it sheds out - some for a few months, others for a few years, a very few as much as 10 years.
