|Before the cut I was grazing APL, but with those ends, it wasn't anything to be proud of. |
After the cut I'm just past shoulder length, but my ends look full and healthy.
My hair from the floor, its gone bye-bye now.

Update: Solving the Mystery of My Thin Relaxed Ends
Well I did it. Or more precisely my stylist did it, cut a little more than 2 inches from my ends. But she wasn't happy about it. My stylist is the complete opposite of scissor-happy, she hates to cut hair especially if its long. So I had to beg and plead with her to cut as much as she did. I know I could have taken the ends off in stages, a half inch at a time. But I'd rather just rip the band-aid off quickly and get it over with. So that's what we did, and I'm happy with the end result. My ends look and feel a ton better, and even though she didn't want to cut it, my stylist agreed it was needed. But I know I'll have to be careful going forward so I don't end up needing such a drastic cut again. There is still a little more that needs to come off, so I probably won't gain any length from my new growth a my next relaxer touch-up in about 4 weeks. But after that I'll be totally weak-end free and I will be sure to keep up with regular dusting to stay out of the weak-end zone.
