She was one of the very first people to e mail me and say hey, I love your blog and I want to see if I could advertise with you. In 2007, I named her Afrobella of the Week. Her at home DIY skincare tips changed my life.
Anita Grant has been a significant part of my Afrobella journey.
Recently the UK mixtress started shipping stateside, via Hairrogant.com. And yours truly has finally gotten the opportunity to try these much buzzed about products from across the pond. As you’ll see in my YouTube video review, Anita Grant’s products were worth the wait!
So what would I recommend for a first time purchaser? The Goodie Box Sampler is a great place to start. It includes some of Anita’s most talked about hair and body products.
If you’re looking for specific hair care solutions and you’ve got thick, fabulous natural hair that could use some essential TLC, try out her rhassoul clay deep condish. If you’re familiar with the effects of rhassoul clay on natural hair, then you already know you’re in for a treat!
Anita’s rhassoul condishes won’t dry out your hair like clay can sometimes do, because they’re infused with unrefined black cocoa butter and vitamin e. Anita suggests using rhassoul clay to detoxify your hair and scalp in lieu of a hot oil treatment. My hair loves both! Anita’s rhassoul condish leaves my hair super soft, super clean, and super happy. I plan to do treatments once a month, and a little goes a long way for me – just half a cube was enough for my treatment. If you’re new to clay hair treatments, I gotta forewarn you – it can be messy. Use an older towel and an old teeshirt for cleanup and things will go much easier. And make sure you rinse out your shower stall thoroughly afterwards to avoid your husband asking you questions like “what the heck is all over the shower?!” I speak from experience.
If you’re a fan of shampoo bars or you’re seeking a shampoo that gives you lather and moisture without all the bad for you hair ingredients like SLS and ammonium laureth sulfate, Anita Grant’s babbasu shampoo bars really are the business. There are no artificial preservatives or colors or parabens, it’s vegetarian and vegan friendly. And just because it’s pure doesn’t mean it doesn’t lather well or smell great – her babbasu bars gave my hair lots of bubbly sudsy love, and comes in scents like peppermint, kelp and ylang ylang, and lavender rose. AND they’re pretty affordable, and last a long time if you store them in a dry place!
If you’re seeking a new oil to add to your haircare arsenal, I definitely fell head over heels for Anita’s Cameilla Kissi Oil. It is everything it promises to be. Deeply penetrative and moisturizing, and a little has been going a long way with my hair. I double my pleasure and use a few drops of her coconut rosewood oil (which I can’t find on her site, but click here to check out her other scent infused organic coconut oils), and my hair is richly perfumed and soft as can be.
I just got a teeny taste of Anita Grant’s goodies, and it made me hungry for more! She’s got so many different scented oils with different good-for-you properties, I can’t pick just ONE to be obsessed with.
And that’s my long overdue Anita Grant review! Thanks to Anita for sending me her mini goodie box from across the pond.
