Top tips for tip-top hair growth
It seems that women are never happy with their hair - it's either too short, too long, too curly, too straight or just too messy.
If you're in that awkward in-between stage where your hair just won't seem to grow, there's often a temptation just to cut it off for a definitive style.
But if you're sure that you want to grow it, try these top tips for tip-top hair growth - your hair will be shiny, healthy and long in no time!
Many women damage their hair on a daily basis with excessive use of hair dryers and hair straighteners.

Using this technique and towel drying when possible will save your ends from becoming split - promoting healthy hair growth.
Many people would be surprised to know that sleep deprivation can contribute to hair loss.
