Unhealthy Hair Habits Can Cause Hair Trauma Including Alopecia

Most of the time, they were gushing over the exotic beauty of Hispanic or Brazilian women. African American…

There are others who desire a little more length, like myself, who wait a year or two before…

Obama Takes Heat for the Morning After Pill Decision

    President Barack Obama said Thursday it was just common sense to keep girls under the age of 17 from being able to buy a morning-after contraceptive pill off a drugstore shelf.
