AutoRefill: “Gross but effective! It’s red, and you look like Carrie with it on but it’s like a $200 facial in a bottle. I use it once a week or every two weeks,” shalitagrant says of her go-to, $8 peel

Shalita Grant’s “facial in a bottle” is only $8.

Actress Shalita Grant, whose latest role transformed her into Bay Area mommy blogger Sherry Conrad in You’s third season, has had a journey with her hair. For her first three seasons as Sonja Percy on NCIS: New Orleans, Grant wore her hair in a ponytail, which required her to straighten her hair almost daily. Looking back, she says, “I didn’t realize what the hair maintenance of a series regular entailed.”

To try to protect her hair in later seasons, Grant tried extensions. Only when she filmed an underwater scene and had to go into chlorinated water for weeks on end did she cut the extensions out and realize they had caused a bald spot.“When I came back for the fourth season, that’s the infamous ‘helmet-head wig’ I was wearing. At that point, I was like, I don’t give a fuck. I know why I’m doing this. I’m gonna look like this. It is what it is. And it was humiliating.”

When she left the show, Grant was still dealing with the damage — both outwardly and inwardly. “I had to heal a lot in order to move forward,” she says. “I did that work and then I was like, Now I want to heal my hair.”She turned to her kitchen, where she concocted her patent-pending Henna Mud Masque, which combines henna lawsonia, aloe vera, and fenugreek to strengthen naturally kinky, coily, type 4 strands. It was meant to ship to hair salons before the coronavirus pandemic, but the actress is now focused on getting it straight to consumers before the end of the year through her brand, Four Naturals hair care. She says, “My hair is the healthiest it’s ever been, and when my patent goes through, it’ll be history-making: I’ll be the second Black woman to have a patent for a natural-hair product.” (The first was Gwen Jimmere.) headtopics.com

In the meantime, Grant is sharing more of her beauty staples below, including the $8 peel she calls a “facial in a bottle,” the sunscreen that is truly invisible, and the Mexican nail hardener that prevents chipping. The Exfoliator The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution $7 “Gross but effective! It’s red, and you look like Carrie with it on but it’s like a $200 facial in a bottle. I use it once a week or every two weeks. Pro tip: Dab a little on your knuckles if you struggle with hyperpigmentation — knuckle discoloration makes your hands look older than they are. Just don’t leave it on for more than ten minutes!”

Best of all: I’ve never had the retinol uglies while using it, though I will say that when I see my skin might be a little dry, I’ll reach for my hyaluronic serum and my moisturizer instead of this treatment gel to prevent any peeling. So take my experience with a grain of salt.”

It’s either the most expensive hand cream or the cheapest anti-wrinkle therapy. Haven’t decided yet.” headtopics.com

It’s a plant, and it moisturizes but it actually washes out over time. So if you struggle with dry hair, adding cassia to your conditioner will help improve your hair’s ability to retain moisture. It always gives me weight, shine, and some curl definition.”

Well, they’re real — and this hardener is responsible. It’s nontoxic, and it makes my nails thick and strong. I applied this all throughout filming You, and only one nail chipped on the last day. Actually, my girlfriend, Jess, and I had a pandemic romance, and the first thing she sent me was a Mexican flag blanket and this nail hardener because I told her my nails grew really long but they would chip easily.”

How the Four Naturals Henna Mud Masque works is that it binds that henna lawsonia to the strand, so every time you use the treatment, the henna builds on itself. And because it’s a plant, it has a beautiful relationship with water. When there’s humidity or when you’re in the water, your curl definition remains — that’s what’s powerful about this mask.
