Transitioning problems?

I'm currently about 11 months post-relaxer and I feel like my hair isnt growing as fast as everyone else. do you think I have a lot of new growth to be almost 1 year post reaxer? Also I think my relaxed ends are thinning out but im not ready to cut them off yet. How can I stop it from thinning

    Average hair growth is half an inch per month.

    If your relaxed ends are breaking off then your hair won't appear to grow.

    your hair looks likes it's growing a lot! also remember that there's shrinkage that's making your hair look shorter. As for the thinning, you may have had some breakage but it's probably/mainly because your natural hair is thicker that your relaxed hair was.
