As I predicted in my black friday shopping recommendations post Anita Grant would be having a cyber monday sale instead of a black friday deal. The sale event is 25% off and will be valid until December 1st midnight UK time.

Anita Grant is an ethically sourced, ecofriendly and organic haircare and skincare brand that has been a staple in my routine since 2017; so when I tell you the products are good it’s because they are GOOD and have been tried and true.

I have a long list of favorites so I will do a separate post with more details (if time permits), but for now I will simply list my favorites over the years so you can have an idea of what to look for at the site.

My favorites list: Bentonite clay for skin and hair, Creamy cafe Latte Leave-in detangle conditioner (read the review on my blog just use the search function), Organic Unrefined Mongongo oil, Rhassoul clay (I have a recipe for a clay wash that is to die for just search for it in the blog), Japanese Camellia Kissi Oil, Rhassoul Deep Condish, Babassu Shampoo Bars (You can choose from a variety of bars, I’m currently using the coconut milk and honey one and I love it!) Co-wash conditioner (I’m very picky when it comes to cowashing and this is one of my favorite cowashes ever. I like the citrus mint version better, but you can choose whichever you like between unscented, rosemary mint and citrus mint), Organic Virgin Argan Oil, Vanilla Dry Oil (I love this for my skin specially in winter, but it smells so great I use it all year round), Aloe Vera Conditioning Shampoo, Ylang Ylang Floral Water (perfect for my rhassoul clay recipe, I like Ylang Ylang floral water better than rose water and we all know rose water is bomb).

Whew Chile this was a long list of products I hope I didn’t bore you, if you made it this far congratulations and thank you for reading.

Anita Grant Vanilla Dry Oil Spray Review

The Anita Grant Vanilla Dry Oil Spray is a lush addition to my combination skin (oily/dry) that absorbs easily and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and smelling amazing.

I apply a few pumps to my neck, arms and legs after showering or bathing (in winter) and I can’t be happier with my results, even my husband has commented on how pleasant the smell is.

It features a very short ingredient list which I love; with caprylic/capric triglicerides derived from coconut oil, jojoba oil which is the most similar oil to our sebum and organic vanilla, delish!

You can also use it for your curly hair, I haven’t gotten around to doing this yet because I love it so much on my skin so I’m kinda saving it; but when I do you’ll be the first to know my impressions, I think it will make for an excellent preshampoo treatment based on the ingredients alone.

It’s perfect for refreshing day 2 or 3 curls, for prolonging wash day by giving the scalp a clean feeling and removing any itchiness that might be present for at least 2 full days.

Another name for Ylang Ylang is cananga odorata and one of the reasons I think it’s so great for the scalp is that this plant has been purported to have sebum regulating features for the skin and scalp. It is also said that it contributes to hair growth and while I have no hard evidence of this claim, I have noticed my hair growing like weeds lately! Coincidence or causality? It’s up to you to find out for yourself but I think there is something at play here and it’s good.

Creamy Cafe latte product review

I wanted to start the year on a good note, so I will be sharing some of my favourite haircare and skincare products for this winter season and the number one is…drum roll please…the Anita grant creamy cafe latte.

🍫Creamy cafe Latte daily Leave in Butter🍫

The Anita Grant creamy cafe latte butter is intended for usage on dry hair and it helps me to break out my gel cast, create bantu knots and to smooth out my hair for braiding, the difference with other products when braiding is amazing, it makes the process easier and the final result a lot shinier and well put together.

It also helps to detangle due to having among it’s ingredients a naturally derived ingredient called Behentrimonium methosulfate, which provides slip. I promise that a label decoding for this ingredient is coming up soon but for now just know that if a product has it, the likelihood of great slip is higher.

The fact that the creamy cafe latte is cacao based and smells amazing is just a cherry on top!

Fabulous product all in all and did I mention it smells great? (I got the unscented one) It does not build up on the hair and so far so good, also works wonders for preserving stretched hair (heatless stretched hair, blow dried or roller sets, etc.).

I rarely purchase butters, however the formulation intrigued me and it delivered so this one is a keeper and lasts a long time, a little goes a long way. It is also Shea Butter free, for those of you who prefer products without Shea butter.

It’s a multipurpose leave in and it has many more uses, especially in winter, so now I will share why I love it in winter.

I really like this product during winter times because it’s full of lovely ingredients such as Macadamia nut oil, Organic Castor oil and behentrimonium methosulfate (you know I love this ingredient, but had to mention it again) which gives it a nice slip that helps in dry detangling, yes you read correctly, dry detangling as in for preshampooing (one of those things we should be doing in Winter). It’s also very moisturizing and boosts shine.

The scent is lovely and yeah it has coffee in it so it was bound to be perfect (my OG curlfriends know about my coffee obsession), but back to the review…I also use it to refresh my curls when I don’t want to rewet my hair but still want to seal in the moisture and get a kick of shine!

Scalp massages with this are also possible and it contains caffeine which has been purported to stimulate hair growth so no harm in trying!

In case you did not know Anita Grant is a British brand with handmade, cruelty free and naturally derived products that ships reliably worldwide, so even after moving to Japan I can purchase their products!
