Ugh is there any hope for my hair?!

So I have been trying to grow my hair out since highschool. I recently graduated college and I still havent really gotten anywhere! My longest layer is bsl but most of my hair is still up to my shoulders and not growing! And to make matters worse i feel like my hair has been thinning out and looking stringy.

I try to do a DT of olive oil and honey, or coconut oil once a week. My current routine is to co wash with tressemes naturals, put in shea moisture product and either yes to carrots or knot today, and then herbal essences tottally twisted mousse or gel. my hair has some bleach damage but lately i have only been dying the roots and trying to baby it. I havent used heat on it since May.

I'm getting married in June and would like it to look ok before then, and preferably grow a little. IF anyone has any advice, i'd love to hear it :-/

    First and foremost congrats on both your graduation and engagement. The best advice i can give you is to do PS until june. Its a great way to retain length. You can alternate between,wig,full sew in weaves,and braid extensions. Although you can do PS with your own hair i find it tempting since i can just take them down but when i do the ones above i am forced to wait. When u do get a chance to keep your hands off your head have more time for other things..like wedding planning maybe ;)
