During my psychiatry rotation, I came across many individuals from different walks of life. Most of them were admitted for substance or alcohol use disorder and a few with mood disorders. There was one particular case that a colleague of mine was covering that really hit home for me.Unknown-2.jpeg

She was following an African American male in his early-mid twenties, who self-admitted due to Major Depressive Disorder and Suicidal Ideations. He was a senior at a prestigious university, a member of a fraternity and played on his university’s football team.

Easy like Sunday Morning: Deep Conditioner For Natural Hair Care

For years I have inconsistently used this mixture of natural ingredients to aid in the management and upkeep of my hair. I recently decided to be more consistent with this and I love the results. I am currently doing this once a month, I would like to do it more often but my busy schedule does not allow me to do so.

Each of these ingredients is natural and affordable, not only that they each have a unique advantage when added to your regular hair care routine. I am a huge fan of olive oil and coconut oil. These oils also have excellent benefits when used on the skin as well. I decided not to go into detail with that in this post but can do so in a separate post if you all would like to find out more information.
