Constantly manipulating your hair only leads to breakage. Manipulation can be in the form of over combing, or constantly changing hair styles.
To retain maximum length, it's important that you avoid manipulating your hair and leave your hair be.
The more you manipulate your stands, the more the protein bonds in your hair gets broken down, and the more your hair is likely to break.
Use long term protective styles, low manipulation styles and buns to avoid manipulating your strands.
Some long term protective styles are; twists, box braids, cornrows, weaves and crochet braids.
Some low manipulation styles are; twist outs, curly dos, up dos, buns, and straw curls.
Remember low manipulation = length retention.
