Ellie Goulding is "desperate" to grow her hair.
The 'Army' hitmaker has been using extensions whilst she waits for her blonde tresses to grow longer but cannot wait until her locks achieve the length she's been dreaming of.
She said: "I'm desperately trying to get my hair to grow. I've always been a long hair kind of girl. When I look at pictures of myself, I always think I really want my long hair back.
"Also you still need a good length of healthy hair to put extensions in. I'm not afraid of admitting I use extensions and spray tan. That's what I do, and that's what a lot of girls do. I find it fun."
The 29-year-old singer recalled her recent "hair disaster," which meant she had to have her locks cut short, and admits she is trying to "resist" the urge to dye her hair.
She added to the New York Times newspaper: "Around the time I was promoting my album in New York, my hair was the best it has been. Then recently I had a hair disaster and ended up having to cut it really short. Now it's kind of short because of the disaster, and I've resisted the temptation to dye it. My roots are down to my ears!
"I've been using this product called FAST, which is supposed to make your hair grow fast, but I've been using it for a few weeks now, and I haven't seen a difference. Otherwise, I usually use Kérastase volumizing shampoo and conditioner. You know when you find a shampoo that works for you? This is it."
