How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

We’ve all been there.

Whether you’re recovering from a bad cut or hoping for waist-length waves by your wedding day, waiting for your hair to grow can be a rather tedious process.

But, unfortunately, every woman I’ve ever taken the time to ask has admitted she has an issue with at least one part of her body, face, or appearance.

Personally, I came to the disordered-eating party a bit late. I had managed to mostly fixate on disliking other parts of myself (see: my personality) until I was 24, when I took a job working the night shift as an editor at a different website.
