Growing out hair

I have curly hair, around 3a, but the ends are extremely damaged from ironing, and bleaching. It has still managed to grow, just very slowly. When straight, my hair is around the middle/lower end of my back.

I wanted to see if I could grow my hair a little more and make it a bit healthier in these 3 months before I go to college. I was thinking of going no poo/curly girl method to keep my hair away from sulfates and chemicals, etc.

Also, since it is the summer, and I live in the south, I wasn't going to use any sort of hair product, and try to keep in a bun almost all the time.

Any tips? Am I doing this wrong?

Cut off the worst of the damage because it cannot be repaired, it will snarl on healthy hair higher up damaging that. The same style day in and day out can stress the hair, go for a variety of loose up dos with super gentle tools.
