Sunday 'Snip'

It's Sunday, you're relaxing, kicking back after a hectic weekend or being a geek like me and researching stuff...fancy reading some hair trivia? Course you do! Read on you lovely bunch - welcome to Sunday 'Snip' a regular feature about hair - facts, trivia and news.

Did you know?...
That  when your hair is wet it can increase in length by up to a whopping 30%, yet it still returns to it's normal length once dried.

Handy hint!...
Got some stray/flyaway hairs that are just ruining your sleek locks or fancy up do? Use a toothbrush (old!) and spray with hairspray to tame the hairs.

How did they do it?
The ancient Egyptians used a formula of juniper berry juice to darken the hair, to keep the grey hairs at bay. The also strangely used lettuce to combat bald spots and promote hair growth!

Hair product of the week...
Beautiful packaging, amazing product, and all for 99p? Yes please! Natural Collections Hi-Shine Conditioner is just what your hair needs after a hard week working (and hopefully playing!!) 3-5 minutes on damp hair gives great shine and this wonder sachet contains mango and papaya so smells fantastic.
