I do not think the way you are combing your hair has any adverse effect on your hair.
In most of the cases we have observed that after cutting hair short,hair grows faster.
In your case as your hairs are thin require some nutrition to hair.
Use good branded hair oil,shampoo and conditioners.
take vit A,C, and multi vitamin supplements.
Keep your hair dandruff and lice free.
