I have naturally curly hair. I used to HATE it. I did two rounds of the Japanese straightening treatment years ago, and I really regret it how. Anyway, my hair has grown out and the straight hair from that treatment is the last inch or two on my ends. I have long hair and love having it long. But my ends are disgusting. They don't match the texture of my hair now, they're dry, lots of breakage and split ends. How much should I cut off? But doesn't cutting your hair defeat the purpose of growing it out?
Trim It, Especially the Dead ends" so it can grow out in a Better fashion and Not Look... Disgusting. Even though you are Growing 'It out,' merely keep it trimmed so it can Grow Out more beautifully.

I'm not sure about the cutting part but I was going to suggest using coconut oil. I use it in my hair as conditioner and I also take coconut oil supplements to keep my hair healthy and to it feels like it helps it grow to me at least. For years now like once a year i'll cut my hair for locks of love and I hate it being short so I always want it to grow back as fast as possible and i've noticed how coconut oil helped, so just a suggestion.
It's actually healthier to trim or cut your hair every 8 weeks. My hair was below my hips and I used to cut it every 8 weeks and it grew super fast. Too bad I cut it super short last week. Plus cutting off split ends helps with growth.
