Care for Your Hair

Natural beauty products fall in and out of fashion at a fairly predictable rate. People cycle between preferring carefully styled looks and looser, more casual ones. These revolving trends aren’t just about the final results. Trends also dictate which styling products are used in the process of creating the hairstyles of the day.
It’s only logical that laid-back hairstyles and natural products would be in vogue at the same time. During these phases, people let their hair dry naturally and care more about the health of their hair than making it look perfect at all times. Some people go so far as to avoid washing their hair for days at a time. There’s a fair amount of science to support this practice: your scalp gradually decreases its oil production if you’re not rinsing it away every day. Your hair also benefits from its decreased exposure to the stripping ingredients in shampoos.

If you don’t like the idea of abstaining entirely from washing your hair, there are ways to give your hair a rinse without resorting to normal shampoos. You could use a silicone-free conditioner in place of shampoo, since conditioners usually contain small amounts of chemicals that allow them to rinse out cleanly. Some brands like Herbal Essences and Not Your Mother’s even make specialized cleansing conditioners that clean the hair without the use of any type of shampoo. The most natural approach is to clarify the hair with apple cider vinegar and follow it up with a rich oil like coconut.

Wen by Chaz (, the original cleansing conditioner, is another way to experiment with more natural hair washing methods. Because WEN Hair smooths and treats as it cleanses, hair dries sleek and shiny without the use of a hair dryer or heat styling tools. The Wen collection of products improves the hair by putting as much moisture into the hair as possible; the scalp only starts to overproduce its own oils when shampoo leaves the hair too parched.

Whether you are trying out new trends or just want treat your hair a little better, gentle products are the way to go. Try shampooing only on alternating days, and experiment with different natural conditioning oils. Get these products exclusively on Sephora and eBay.

FreedomPop is on the Rise

Smaller mobile phone service do have a tough time breaking through to the consumer public. Buyers have a tendency to stick with the big names thanks to their track record. What consumers do not like is the high costs so commonly associated with smartphone use. Well, the smartphone is cheap. The connecting service comes with high costs. Or does it?

FreedomPop is on the verge of revolutionizing the mobile industry. The Los Angeles company came up with a brilliant mobile service strategy that helped the small company make a big name for itself. There are now millions of subscribers in the United States and the United Kingdom with many more accessing the service via a global Wi-Fi hotspot.

FreedomPop’s brilliant plan entails providing completely free phone, text, and data on its basic plan. Free comes with no “secret costs” or gimmicks. Upgrading to expanded service is possible. The original free plan delivers 200 minutes and 500 text messages, and 500 MB of data per month. Again, minor additional fees can upgrade the amount.

For under $20, unlimited phone, text, and data is available. Such a deal is among the most generous of generous offers in the entire mobile industry. Another solid deal made available by FreedomPop is a new Wi-Fi hotspot service designed to connect at millions of locations all throughout the United States. The cost associated with the service is an incredibly low $5 per month.

FreedomPop has capitalized on some very basic consumer demands. People want excellent service at great deals. FreedomPop has been able to deliver both – something the major names in the mobile phone industry have not. FreedomPop went further than even the most generous of dreams. Free service was unheard of. Millions of customers will point out this is no longer the case.

FreedomPop has chosen to continue its successful endeavors by coming up with many new ventures. One item that is being developed is a VoIP phone, a phone totally reflective of the future. FreedomPop puts the tens of millions of dollars in venture capital funds it receives to fantastic use.

Another new horizon FreedomPop is gearing up to explore is internet service. The company has modems and accompanying inexpensive service available for those interested in cutting their current bills down. That should score some good marks in a FreedomPop review.

FreedomPop could end up going from a small-sized startup to a monster in the mobile and internet industry. And all this success will be built upon the classic concept of giving customers a good deal.

Kate Hudson Living Her Passion In New Fabletics Active Wear Ads

Wouldn’t it be nice if a star really did use the items he or she was advertising, and we really believed them?

Check out actress Kate Hudson in new 30 second spots for Fabletics active wear, the brand she co-founded, and watch her get real.

What makes these energetic commercials look genuine and sincere is Kate Hudson, first of all. She’s cute, bubbly and approachable to fans. In other words, she is down to earth and relatable. Seeing her working out wearing colorful Fabletics active wear is a treat and window into the star’s normal lifestyle outside the Hollywood red carpet.

Kate Hudson has always been fit and fashionable, and that’s what her brand is all about. The 30-second TV commercials show on Pinterest the actress in behind the scenes footage where she is swimming, playing ping-pong, doing yoga, skate-boarding and even exercising on a Pilates machine.

Kate Hudson wanted the spots to look like part of her social media feeds of normal life, so she recorded most of the action on her personal i-phone. Almost 70 percent of the shots featured in the spot were filmed on the phone.

The spots are cool and unique and show the versatility of the work-out brand. Fabletics features vivid colors and patterns in trendy leggings, crop tops, tanks, tees, yoga pants, swimsuits and even athlesiure dresses. Kate even sleeps in her Fabletics gear when she wants.

The busy mom of two wants to encourage other women around the world to get moving in any way they can. “Live your passion” is the brand’s mission, and Kate Hudson says her clothing is not only affordable and comfortable but stylish active wear 24/7 on She designed the pieces to work into night, like her new collection of dresses, which can be worn on a date or night on the town.

Fabletics’ other two co-founders include business partners Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler. Maintaining Fabletics as a top online subscription retailer is not an easy maneuver in the world of e-commerce. Most start-ups like these explode onto the scene and then quietly wither away, but not Fabletics. The VIP membership they offer has won them fans around the globe.

The VIP member always has the option to shop or not shop every month. If they don’t care to make a Fabletics purchase that month, all they do is click on the “Skip the Month” button in their personal shopping boutique. As long as they “Skip the Month” by the 5th of each month, the member won’t be charged.

Put Your Smooth On….On Your Lips, That Is!

The small, pretty blue ball erroneously rolled off of the dining table in the restaurant. A few other diners noticed it, largely because of the bright color or because they must have thought it was a ball. I, too, was unsure just exactly what it was as my friend, Samantha, lunged to retrieve her treasure as if it was something she could not bear to lose. As she returned to the table with the small colorful ball, I immediately inquired about what turned out to be Evolution of Smooth lip balm or EOS.

Samantha was eager to show her treasure to me. She easily unscrewed the small ball-like top and showed me the natural smooth lip balm inside. I was astounded and impressed as she gently rubbed the small ball-like balm over her lips. I had noticed earlier that Samantha’s lips looked smoother and the small age lines had diminished. Samantha shared her information about the EOS Blueberry Acai lip balm she loved. She also explained that there were several other flavors available; she reported that her Strawberry Sorbet lip balm was at home. In the nature of good hygiene, I only smelled the impressive lip balm without sampling it myself, but I vowed to obtain one for my own use! I was especially excited to find out that the company also manufactures a Medicated Tangerine flavor for those who have very dry lips or who suffer from Psoriasis.

I apologized to my own favorite Avon lip balm the next day when I visited the Evolution of Smooth website. I have been an avid Avon lip balm user for years but these products looked great. They are all natural, paraben and gluten free lip balms. I will be trying the Medicated Tangerine first but I imagine there will be more purchases to follow. Check out their products on Ulta.

Transforming Education Using ClassDojo

Sam Chaudhary started ClassDojo, an education-based mobile application, to connect parents to teachers and students while in school. The communication platform also facilitates sharing of learning materials through photos and videos. Moreover, it supports confidential communication within parents and teachers on a student’s conduct while at school.


Sam Chaudhary launched the application to help transform the learning process by creating a positive learning culture in classrooms and schools. Students were given a chance to take control over their learning process by being able to build up their ClassDojo Portfolio to their liking. This encouraged students to develop life skills such as responsibility, hardworking, and teamwork.


ClassDojo has teamed up with Stanford’s Project for Education Research That Scales to introduce a series of animated videos aimed at growing students’ mindset. Positive comments on students’ portfolio were significant in transforming their perception. The comments made students appreciate and build on skills that were recommended by parents and teachers.


Sam Chaudhary and his Co- founder Liam Don were inspired to fill the communication gap that existed in the traditional classroom. In their endeavor, they consulted with teachers and parents on where they felt the education system had a weakness. Parents testified that they wanted an active involvement in their children’s learning process. Based on the responses received from teachers and parents, the two founders designed ClassDojo mobile application.


The head of communications at ClassDojo, Lindsay McKiney confirmed that the application had already been downloaded by millions of users. Two- thirds of public, private and charter schools in US has already adopted the app. The application is also being used worldwide in over 180 other countries.


The apparent reason why the mobile app has received such a ground- up market growth is its ability to create a positive culture with classrooms and schools. ClassDojo has enabled a shared classroom experience between parents, teachers, and students.


 The app established collaboration between parents and educators by addressing the obstacle of distance between home and school. Parents can readily follow up on their children’s conduct and progress from anywhere without having to wait for a parent-teacher meeting to be arranged.


To enhance efficiency, ClassDojo does not need one to provide login credentials, such as elaborate sign-up passwords, to use it. It has a feature of translating messages to several languages by just tapping. Moreover, it was designed based on private policies that enhance the security of its users.

A Solution to the Ukraine Economic Crisis by George Soros

People around the world tend to listen very carefully when George Soros has something to say. This is because he oversees one of the largest financial empires on the planet. Over the years, Soros has chimed in on a wide range of issues that he has deemed important. The recent economic crisis affecting Ukraine is the latest event that has caught the attention of the billionaire hedge fund manager. He is horrified at what has happened to the country in the wake of the invasion ordered by President Vladimir Putin of Russia. Soros wants the world to know that the invasion of this sovereign nation has caused many problems. One of the biggest involves the country’s economy.

There has never been an economic crisis of this magnitude in the entire history of Ukraine. Many basic services in the country have become very unreliable. In some cases, they have ceased to function completely. It is true that Russia is also feeling the negative impact on their own economy as a result of stiff economic sanctions that have been imposed against them. The main reason for Russia’s economic woes comes from the fact that the price of oil has fallen sharply. A balanced budget in Russia needs to have the price for each oil barrel to be roughly $100. However, it has not even been close to that amount in recent months. Barrels of oil have plummeted all the way down to $55. It was 18 years ago when Russia last had an economic crisis anywhere close to what they are experiencing now. Unfortunately, Ukraine has been taken down with them.

George Soros – Business Leader, Philanthropist

George Soros – Project Syndicate

Soros believes that the economic crisis in Ukraine is so severe that immediate assistance from countries around the world is needed to prevent it from completely destroying the country. George Soros has created a plan that he thinks will effectively eliminate the financial woes that the country is currently facing. His plan begins with convincing companies from across the globe to start doing business in Ukraine. Soros knows that this will be no easy task. He suggest that significant financial incentives be given to any company that is interested in such a risky business venture.

According to Soros, one of the other significant problems that needs to be solved right away involves the national gas supplier of Ukraine called Naftogaz. This is a company that is completely owned and operated by the Ukrainian government. Therefore, they have been setting their prices in a way that you would expect from a company that has a monopoly over an entire country. Soros feels that it is time for Naftogaz to undergo a complete restructuring. This would allow the prices charged by the company to be directly determined by conditions in the current marketplace.

On a related subject, Soros is also calling for discounts on gas to be offered to people who fall under a specific income level to be determined. He believes that many people in Ukraine cannot afford the current rates that Naftogaz is charging.
