Beauty Confession: This Lipgloss Is a Game-Changer for My Hair
It’s that time again! I have a weird beauty move, and I can’t 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’s one of my go-to styling products. Weird?! I know! Listen, this isn’t just any lipgloss — it’s coconut oil-infused lipgloss. Here’s how it works and why I’m officially obsessed.
The Game-Changing Lip Gloss
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’t change your hair color one bit. BTW — peep that color on my lips! So pretty, right?
How It Works
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.
Before + After Lip Gloss
I feel complete now that I’ve passed this weird bit of information your way. It’s these little hacks that make me smile. Any time I can use one thing for dual purposes, I feel like I’ve cheated the system. Hope you enjoy!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
