It鈥檚 that time again! I have a weird beauty move, and I can鈥檛 not share it with you. We all know my obsession with blow drying my eyelashes and the weirdest hairbrush ever, but this is on a whole new level of weird. I accidentally put lip gloss in my hair one day, and it just felt right. Now, it鈥檚 one of my go-to styling products. Weird?! I know! Listen, this isn鈥檛 just any lipgloss 鈥 it鈥檚 coconut oil-infused lipgloss. Here鈥檚 how it works and why I鈥檓 officially obsessed.


The Game-Changing Lip Gloss


Enter The Est茅e Edit by Est茅e Lauder Cocobalm ($22), a bomb new lipgloss that鈥檚 designed to treat and tint your lips. The scent, texture and color of these little dudes are incredible. What鈥檚 more, they totally double as a hair styling agent that also makes the ends of your tresses feel like they鈥檝e been treated with a serum.

How It Works


I just took a little of the gloss and used it to smooth and piece together the ends of my hair. The pigment in this gloss won鈥檛 change your hair color one bit. BTW 鈥 peep that color on my lips! So pretty, right?

Before + After Lip Gloss


As you can see, my hair is tamer and has a smooth sheen, which also feels really good to the touch. This literally feels like a treatment meant for my hair.


I feel complete now that I鈥檝e passed this weird bit of information your way. It鈥檚 these little hacks that make me smile. Any time I can use one thing for dual purposes, I feel like I鈥檝e cheated the system. Hope you enjoy!
