How short is it now and how long did you want it? 11 months is quite a long time, your hair should be quite a few inches longer if you dont cut it between now and then. Ive heard of people taking Biotin to grow their hair but I dont know if it actually works.

Biotin, it will take 3 months before you see results, but it does work! I have also had good luck with Monat hair products, they have an oil to help.

I did the same thing a while back (not before a wedding) and I read a lot of reviews abuot Biotin. I ended up getting it (5,000mcg) and it made my hair grow unbelievably fast within a year. I had 6 inches cut off and within a year about 8 inches grew back. It also helps with losing less hair in the shower. Your nails will grow very fast too (and strong). Good luck I think it’s worth a try!

Just don’t cut it. 

Honestly, the best way.

sunworshipbride :  a vitamin for hair skin and nails will do it. That stuff really works!!! I took it primarily for my nails but my hair everywhere grew so fast. Great for hair on my head but I got sick of having to shave  my legs more often…. I swear I got a five o clock shadow on my legs when I took that stuff!!๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

It depends on your hair and how many extra inches you hope to have. 11 months is plenty of time though. I cut mine off to two inches in January and I’ve already got a full bob to the bottom of my neck. ๐Ÿ˜ค If all else fails extensions are an option.

You can take prenatals (or hair and nail supplement), fish oil etc. But if you cannot get enough growth by then you can get extensions and have a hairstylest cut your hair and the extensions together to look like your hair. If you color your hair then you can color them too.

I’m not sure how short your hair is and how long you want it to be, but here are some easy tips

1. Keep your hair healthy. Always use a spray in conditioner and Moroccan oil on the ends of your hair once it’s damp.

2. Let your hair air dry as much as possible

3. Try and keep heat styling products off your hair. Straightening irons are the worst at heat damage

4. No color, or very minimal color, and no perms

5. A good multi vitamin

6. Extensions if all else fails

This is super vague… How long is your hair now and how long do you want it? 

Abuse your hair as little as possible and factor in the cost of extensions now, whether they’re clip ins or sewn in.

Lots of people do extensions for their wedding, if for nothing else but fullness. I have butt-length hair but will have clip-in extensions for volume.
