INGRIDIENTS + BENEFITS

Avocado

 

Avocados are high in vitamins B and E, which work at the cellular level to protect and strengthen hair. Vitamin B is essential for hair growth. Vitamin E helps repair damage on the scalp, which may slow or prevent hair growing

Yams

They are also a good source of many minerals including copper, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. In addition, navy beans are a good source of protein and vitamin B1.

The foods we eat are so important for the health of our hair and body, so pay close attention to what and how you eat. As always, do your research, make sure you are not allergic to any of the items listed above before consuming them 😃

🇺🇸 Happy 4th of July 🇺🇸

20 years ago I arrived in a country where the food, language, and the culture was so foreign to me, even though I grew up visiting the USA it was still strange for me to live in a different nation and none the less intimidating. I was only 15 years old, a time where your roots are so important to help you define your future self. I am not going to lie; it wasn't an easy transition, but it was also an opportunity to get to know me and explore an entirely different environment. Fast forward 20 years, I am now 35, and I am feel as AMERICAN as anyone who  was born in this great land, where diversity & opportunity is in every corner. 

Let's celebrate, life, freedom and the opportunity to live in this amazing country. HAPPY 4th OF JULY. 

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Art for everyone

With over 30 centuries worth Art, the Museum opened up its doors with an exhibit of French sculptor Auguste Rodin in May 2011 at Plaza Carso, its commitment to educate on Art, sustainability and the environment throughout free programs is one of its founding objectives. Open 365 days of the year at no cost and the majority of its Art comes from European regions with the intention of sharing some of the most iconic pieces by Rembrandt, Renoir and Dali to those who can't travel abroad.  

El Angel

Most commonly known by El Ángel and officially known as Monumento a la Independencia "Monument to Independence." was built in 1910 during the presidency of Porfirio Díaz to commemorate the centennial of the beginning of Mexico's War of Independence. In later years it was made into a mausoleum for the greatest heroes of that war.

D.F. as the locals call it; it’s a magical, mystical, ancient, and a beautiful city. You can find anything and everything you want. From a temple that was built by an ancient civilization to some of the most modern buildings in the world, murals in the Palace of Government painted by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo self-portraits, Aged Mole and Mezcal. A diverse, open-minded city where people are people, where religion and family matters but respect prevails. A place where the saying “Mi Casa Es Su Casa,” means just that.
”La Ciudad de México.”
