Product Review: Banana Rhassoul Deep Condish from Anita Grant

5 Jul

Description from the company website:

Our Rhassoul Deep  Condishes contains Unrefined Black Cocoa Butter & natural Soya based Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) which helps to  guard scalp & hair from free radical damage. When hot liquid is added to our  Rhassoul Deep Condishes, it swells & increases its surface area like a  highly porous sponge.  Attracting & trapping toxins into these open porous  spaces so that when it comes time to rinse the Rhassoul Deep Condish from your  hair the toxins are eliminated and you’re left with detoxified fluffy soft  tresses.

So instead of a Hot Oil treatment why not detoxify your scalp & hair.

5 Things I Love About the Banana Rhassoul Deep Condish:

  1. It was easy to mix following the easy directions on Anita Grant’s website
  2. Excellent ingredients including rhassoul clay, olive oil, vitamin e, and honey
  3. Left my hair extremely soft and feeling very moisturized
  4. It smells great, and it left my hair with a nice light scent (It’s banana scented and has a bit of a chocolate smell)
  5. Can be mixed with your choice of liquids and herbs

My hair has been very dry because I’ve been lazy with it recently. I hoped that this treatment could help to revive it, and it exceeded all of my expectations. Here’s what I did:

  • To mix, you need a hot liquid. I chose to mix with coconut milk. This was one of the suggestions on Anita Grant’s website, and I love coconut milk. You may recall I use it in my Henna recipe.
  • I warmed the coconut milk
  •  I added the heart and used a fork to break it up
  • I stirred until it was a mud-like consistency
  • I left the clay on for 45 minutes
  • Then I rinsed well

My hair felt great afterwards. I didn’t even need a leave-in. I’ve had my hands in my hair all day. This is great for anyone looking for a deep conditioner that gives great results. I would especially recommend it to those who are experiencing dryness. Check out Anita Grant’s website for this and other items made with high quality ingredients.

Thanks to Anita Grant for giving me the opportunity to try this product!

Product Review: Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Moisturizing Conditioner

4 Nov

This product review comes to us from Derby City Naturals:

Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner

11 oz


Available locally at Whole Foods Market


 AO products are 100% natural, vegan and not tested on animals.  This conditioner is marketed for those with dry, brittle hair to “detangle and smooth for ultra-soft, shiny, touchable hair”. 

 5 Things I like:

  1. The ingredients are 100% natural and you can actually understand the ingredients list so I know exactly what I am putting on my hair.
  2. The conditioner is surprisingly thick! I placed it in the palm of my hand and turned my hand upside-down without it running.
  3.  A little goes a long way. 
  4. It left my hair feeling very soft.
  5. It rinsed out clean without leaving any residue yet my hair felt very moisturized.

 This conditioner was great and I can definitely see what the hype was all about. However this conditioner has no slip and I did not feel comfortable detangling my hair with it without causing breakage.  The conditioner is scented with natural honeysuckle and rose oil so it has a nice scent, however I think it is a bit strong.  Overall this is a great rinse-out conditioner but I need my conditioner to have good slip too.  If I were to use it again I would use olive oil to detangle first before conditioning.  As a side note my daughter has commandeered the conditioner and it is her new fav!

Thanks for the product review, DCN. Check out Derby City Naturals on Facebook for great information about natural hair.
