I Had Dull, Lifeless Hair—Until This Shampoo Transformed My Strands

I Had Dull, Lifeless Hair—Until This Shampoo Transformed My Strands

I’ve never liked my hair. Historically it’s been thin and wavy in a limp, frizz-prone way. Rain, summer, and humid climates were all disastrous, leaving my hair matted flat to my skull up top before descending into undefined chaos. My solution to all of this was equally disastrous: to force my hair’s texture into submission with heat tools, which of course lead to breakage, dry ends, and a comically thin ponytail. But I figured we can’t have it all in life—my ancestors blessed me with good skin, so I assumed that good hair just wasn’t in the cards. This was until I was introduced to New Wash in January 2017. New Wash is a shampoo alternative belonging to a somewhat new class of products called a co-wash or cleansing conditioner. This category of hair cleanser is marked by its absence of detergents, which give conventional shampoo its sudsy quality. Turns out detergents also strip your scalp of its protective oil barrier, leading your body to produce more oil. That means greasy hair and increased washing, thus continuing the cycle of detergent violence on our poor scalps.

Telehealth Drones: Healthcare Coming Soon To A Screen Near You

Telehealth and virtual healthcare are among the latest trends in medicine. And rightly so—with new modes of communication, pandemic-driven restrictions and preferences for socially distant care, and a renewed emphasis on increasing healthcare equity, among other things, telehealth has seen tremendous growth recently. However, what most people traditionally think of as telehealth at its simplest level—where the patient logs on at home to connect with a physician virtually—may soon change. Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have innovated a way to integrate basic telehealth services into a drone, potentially expanding the bounds of what previous innovators ever envisioned with these two technologies individually. A press release by the University describes how “Inventors Victoria Wangia-Anderson, Manish Kumar, Seung-Yeon Lee and Debi Sampsel from three colleges at UC collaborated to develop a semi-autonomous prototype that can be dispatched right to people’s homes. The drones are big enough to carry medicine or medical supplies but small enough to maneuver the tight confines of a home using navigational algorithms developed by UC engineers.” A novel aspect is that the drone will also integrate “cameras and a display screen so patients can talk to health care professionals from the comfort of their home,” in addition to carrying “a waterproof box the size of a small first-aid kit to deliver medical supplies or collect self-administered lab tests.” UC’s press release also mentions how Manish Kumar (Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University and one of the collaborators on the drone project) and his lab have “been working on autonomous systems that combine artificial intelligence with a suite of sensors that allow drones to navigate a cluttered and complex three-dimensional environment, like the entrance to a person’s home and living room.”

Women Not Getting The Healthcare They Need During Covid-19, New Survey Shows

Women Not Getting The Healthcare They Need During Covid-19, New Survey Shows

Just as women have borne the brunt of economic damage from the pandemic, a new report makes clear that Covid-19 has also disproportionately taken a toll on women’s health and access to care. According to a national survey, conducted late in 2020 by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), more than one-third (38%) of women had skipped preventive services, such as checkups or routine tests, during the pandemic. Nearly one-quarter (23%) had forgone a recommended test or treatment. In comparison, only 26% and 15% of men had missed preventive or recommended care, respectively. “The fact that women are more likely than men to delay their healthcare services is not surprising, as women have been disproportionately burdened with child and household care, home schooling and, in many cases, an inability to maintain employment due to the many obligations placed upon them,” said Dr. Sonia S. Hassan, professor of obstetrics and gynecology and associate vice president in the Office of Women’s Health at Wayne State University.
