Contrary to popular belief, snacks eaten before bed don't turn straight into fat!

However, it's still better to eat earlier in the day, when your body needs the extra energy.

Make sure you use an absorbent towel to speed up drying time, and blot your hair gently instead of rubbing it (rubbing can cause frizziness and split ends).
