The key to beautiful hair is healthy hair. There are many simple and important habits one must do to achieve and maintain healthy, gorgeous locks, such as getting proper nutrition, exercising, avoiding permanent treatments, limiting the use of heat styling tools, protecting your hair from the elements - and the list goes on. One of the most crucial of these habits is to have a proper hair care regimen, specifically a healthy washing habit. One hair care product that we all use, and the first step in our daily hair routine (even if you don't have one), is shampoo. Note: unless your hair is oily, you do not need to wash it everyday - we'll get into that some other time.

Your shampoo is just as important as any of the oils, serums, sprays, and other treatment and styling products that you use for your hair, if not more important. A good quality shampoo is essential. Most of the shampoos that you come across are quite the opposite of that, and usually contain harmful ingredients, such as sulfates, which strip the hair of its natural oils, leading to dry hair, breakage, and even hair loss. 

Beecology's Honey and Botanical Shampoo is a natural, paraben and sulfate-free product that contains, as mentioned in its name, an abundance of healthy botanicals. I know what you're thinking... "what about that nice soapy lather that makes my hair feel so nice and clean?" Good news! This product does just that! Not only does Beecology's natural shampoo stray away from harmful ingredients, but it is full of healing ones. Soothing, healing, and healthy. What more could you ask for in a shampoo?

Holiday Red Lip Pencil

As mentioned in my BA STAR Natural Shadow Palette review, BA STAR is well known for being number one in performance makeup for cheerleaders, dancers, competitors, and trend setters. Not only are their products perfect for performers, but their makeup collections can be worn for everyday use. I was sent their Holiday Red Lip Pencil, and I must say, I was very happy with the quality of this lip pencil. First off, the color is beautiful; I would say that it is a more burgundy color (perfect for the season) than red, as it appears in photos. Although this is a full coverage lip pencil, it is quite buildable from a light application. Mostly importantly, it is long-lasting. I have worn this holiday red lip pencil out a couple of times, and I was quite surprised to see it last throughout the day for many many hours that it did. This is a product I would recommend to anyone.
