    Agree with everything except your take on spilt ends. Split ends doesn’t restrict the growth of hair. Hair grows from the shaft the ends have nothing to do with that. Split ends effects the retention of length. The hair will continue to split if not properly trimmed and cared for thus not allowing you to retain any of the length you gained from your hair growth
