I don’t want to admit it, but I will. My little sister has better hair than me. It’s hard to admit your younger sibling is better, or has anything better, than you in any way. But, she does. Libby has long, thick, shiny, brunette hair that people pay a lot to achieve, but don’t. Even though she has been blessed with hair perfection (in my opinion) she still spends time making the most of her God given gift (insert hair flip). The best part – Libby is a junior in college, so her hair tips and products are affordable and attainable by woman everywhere. Read about some of her favorite products, remedies and practices.


Roots Mask from Lush

Libby uses Roots mask in the evening weekly.  Its target audience is those with fine or thin hair, which she doesn’t have, but it works wonders. After using the mask, Libby’s hair is full of volume and looks so healthy. From the Lush website:

“Fine, thin hair? Don’t despair! We’ve got a hair and scalp treatment just for you. You’ll feel the tingling and cooling sensations of fresh mint infusion and minty oils (peppermint and spearmint) as they go to work revitalizing the scalp, because healthy hair starts at the roots! Extra virgin olive oil and honey soften and condition hair to make it shine without weighing it down. Give dull, fine and thin hair volume and shine by treating it with Roots.”

Coconut Oil

So, my sister swears by coconut oil. Do you remember the older male family member in My Big Fat Greek Wedding who uses Windex for every ailment? Yup, that’s Libby with coconut oil. It should be no surprise then, that she uses coconut oil weekly to hydrate her hair.  It also promotes hair growth.

Apple Cider Vinegar

This is one Libby hasn’t tried, but it’s on her short list of beauty treatments to add into her routine. Used as a rinse, apple cider vinegar is suppose to leave hair soft and shiny. The reason I won’t be trying this one – the smell.  I can’t stand it. But, if anyone has tried it, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Style Tips

“I always blow dry by hair with a round brush for the roots and then usually just flip it upside  down for the rest of my hair and end with a cold air blast. Then, I usually straighten it and curt the ends. Flip and shake them out so hey seem more like waves.” Libby
