It’s by Curls Unleashed, which is a line of products for naturals created by ORS (formerly Organic Root Stimulator). It’s called Take Command Curl Defining Crème. This is not a new product.

Hair Is the Truth When It Comes To Mental Health Treatment and the Black Community

Black people are one of the least likely groups of Americans to get professional mental health services but remain some of the most resilient people in the world.

I set out to find…
