Default Problem with the inflation layer: not conserved at the blade tip

clktp is on a distinguished road

I am trying to mesh a wind turbine blade. So far everything seemed okay when I did preview inflation layer but then I zoomed in to the tip region and I saw a wavy behavior. I made cuts on the middle plane through the tip then I have realized that the inflation layer is not conserved along the blade. The program trying to have only surface mesh at the tip so it decreases the inflation layer.

Does anyone have this problem before or any other possible solution to prevent this?

I am also adding some pictures.

I am hoping that someone could help me.

Thank you.
