How To Protect Your Hair While Growing It Out


Question:

I am happily getting married in 1 1/2 years and would love to have nice flowing hair. My hair, however, is about shoulder length and constantly breaking.

Right now I am wearing medium sized boxed braids to the middle of my back (which is where I'd love my real hair to be) but want to do whats best for letting my hair grow. I also have balding sides from poor hair care.

One person says, keep wearing the braids but I tend to loose a few and my hair too plus my awful balding sides show. One person says get a sew in and that will give my hair time to grow and grow back and lastly, my mom says just go to the salon once week or so and let a stylist take care of it and just wear your own hair.

Which idea will give my over relaxed, over colored, dry/brittle, breaking/splitting, receding hairline and poor hair a break so that I will look gorgeous on my wedding day?
