Unfortunately, not all of us are born with luscious, flowing locks but here at Grow Gorgeous, we pride ourselves on being experts in growing long, healthy, gorgeous hair. So when it comes to making hair grow faster, it’s safe to say we have a few tricks up our sleeves. There are multiple factors as to why your hair isn’t growing past a certain length, and yes some of it is down to what your mama gave you (your genes) but the way you treat your hair is also a factor. If your hair feels dry, fine or brittle then it’s most likely down to it being undernourished. Unhealthy hair simply won’t grow to its best ability, so getting your hair healthy should be...

LINDSAY EVANS & DANIELLE MCGRATH | CO-FOUNDERS, NOURISH LIVE FLOW We all know that life can get crazy and schedules can quickly become overwhelming and hectic, especially during the super busy Holiday season.
