Being a woman of color, it makes me happy to see more and more people embracing the aspects about themselves and various other cultures that make each of us unique and special. This is why I love the whole natural-hair movement and seeing women of all colors rocking their natural texture. It doesn't matter to me whether your hair is strait, wavy, curly or kinky it's all beautiful in my eyes.
With that being said, yes, I think it is totally awesome how many of us have learned to appreciate and celebrate the differences of each other's outer appearance, however, I feel that it is even better for us remember that true beauty radiates from within.
Yes, real beauty comes from inside us, and this principal reigns true in the spiritual spectrum as well as specifically pertaining to the health of our hair. This is why we must pay more attention to what we put into our bodies than what we put on our hair. Many times when we experience problems such as hair loss,lack of moisture, and breakage, we search for topical solutions not realizing that putting things on our hair will only render temporary results. Ultimately, it is the nutrients that we feed our bodies that will determine the health of our strands.
Since eating fruits and veggies is the best way to get the vitamins needed for healthy growing hair and beautiful skin, I decided to restock my supply by taking a trip to my favorite grocer, The Dekalb Farmer's market also known as Atlanta's International Farmer's Market! I assure you that this place has the most diverse inventory of produce than any other store I've ever been to, furthermore, the prices are amazing. The market also boasts a massive spice section; a bakery full of delicious breads and many other pastries that are baked fresh each day using organic ingredients; they also have a meat and seafood section with live fresh fish,lobster and crab.....and I could go on and on!
I posted a few pics of my outing below, but they hardly do this place justice...You simply have to experience it for yourself!
|My hubby acting silly as always.|
This place is crazy big! After doing research I found out that its over 140,000 square feet inside!
This is a beautiful Curlie Girlie shopping with her cute son that I met while going down one of the isles.
|Her curls were so beautiful I had to snap a pic!|
I know you can't tell by my expression but I was really excited to fill my buggy with so many yummy fruits and veggies, and even more excited to get home and juice me up a big glass of them!
