if the ends need trimming?

I can't tell if my hair seems stuck at a certain length because of the curl, or if all of a sudden, I have "terminal growth."

A stylist said it may be because I'm not trimming the ends enough.

Is there any way this is true? Does hair still grow despite split ends (which I can't see, anyway)?

    Yes it does. What they mean to say is you're not able to retain the length you gain because your split ends are causing you breakage. If you're bald, and your hair grows six inches in a year, but two inches break off because of split ends, then you will be left with four inches of hair, even though you actually grew six inches of hair. It'll look like your hair isn't growing but really, it is.

    Okay, I understand.

    But, wouldn't I have to see breakage for it to happen?

    I feel like this is one of those things stylists say to convince us we need more frequent haircuts.
