dry, damaged hair - HELP!

I've been trying to grow my hair a few inches. But every few months, the ends get so parched and damaged, I end up getting a haircut and losing the length it grew. That's part of the reason I went (modified) CG.

I started with CG right after my last haircut - about 2 months ago. But my ends are super dry and rough again. I feel like I'll see split ends in another few weeks and end up getting another cut. :(

What can I do to grow my hair???
I have 3b curls - very porous hair.
No-poo left my scalp itchy and greasy. So now I lo-poo, follow with a co-wash, and then condition. I use a light leave in. And I deep condition weekly and do protein treatments twice a month.

    You could be overloading your hair with protein, even if it is twice a month it could be too much. Try doing protein treatments once every other month and see if that changes things.

    What are the products you're using? Maybe you need a heavier leave-in.
