I know my hair is growing, because I quit dyeing it a year ago and you can see approximately nine or so inches of my natural color (which is just slightly darker than the dyed part), but it hasn't gotten any longer. I think it is breaking, and I haven't cut it in a very long time. The ends are brittle and have a lot of split ends. Do I just cut the split ends? I know it is capable of getting longer because I had very long hair when I was 14. Is cutting the ends a good idea and is there anything else I can do to help it get longer?

hi, i have studied hair and my honest opinion is this, firstly sorry to disappoint but strangely the hair length we had as children, mine for instance was butt length, has never got passed my bra strap length now. strange but anyway, my advice would be, definitely get a good trim sounds like about an inch and as your natural hair is now about nine inches and pure i would purchase a SEMI permanent hair dye that matches your natural hair which will not harm your new un dyed hair. you could dye all of the hair if your match is good or try on the older dyed hair, take a sample and give it a try. having a good cut and matching the colour will do a lot for the overall look of your hair, if you can afford it and this is a long term commitment the vitamin supplements such as hair, skin and nails do help your body assisting the best stronger growth, but its long term and worth it. always giving your scalp a good massage when washing your hair to stimulate circulation to the scalp. you could research the herb rosemary often used as a stimulant and conditioner for the hair, good luck xx1
