Chita Beauty has something for every hair type

Even if we cannot afford salon quality products for healthier hair, we still deserve them all. Chita Beauty has affordable, quality products for all hair types. Suzi, the owner, is a hairstylist and makeup artist. She creates hair products that are cruelty-free, with vegan and gluten-free options. This has always been important to me when I choose products that have better ingredients, but they are all pricey.

It all started with the hairspray and grew into her CC Therapy line and her sprays and purple shampoos made with the highest quality of Grape Seed Extract. One of my favorite products is the C3 DEEP TREATMENT HAIR MASK. The cocoa butter and keratin repairs and fortifies hair strands while eliminating frizz, promoting shine, and providing a smooth finish. I use it weekly for a deep conditioning.

Chita Beauty offers free shipping after $50 and with products ranging from $11-$35, you can stock up on nourishing hair products with the best ingredients. Visit Chita Beauty to learn more.

Proud Grill UltraVersatile Stainless Steel Large Grill Basket

Spring has arrived and the grilling season has begun. With outdoor parties and Father’s Day coming up this is a great time to introduce you to this Amazon product I love, the Proud Grill UltraVersatile Stainless Steel Grill Basket.

Proud Grill UltraVersatile Stainless Steel Large Grill Basket

With a large 12″ by 7.5″ cooking area, you can create an entire meal in one basket! Use the entire space or divide into thirds to separate meats and veggies. I had so many ideas of how I wanted use this on my smoker grill. Before this basket I would lay veggies on small cuts on a foiled sheet pan and it just could not pick up a lot of the smoke.

From a basket of veggies to smoking the onions for burger night, this basket keeps it all contained while getting the smoke flavor throughout. I just cut both ends of an onion, peel and throw it in my pellet smoker on the Proud Grill UltraVersatile Stainless Steel Grill Basket for an hour on 180 degrees.

The features are what makes this basket so versatile and a must have for grillers. It is stainless steel and has a large cooking area. The Proud Grill UltraVersatile Stainless Steel Large Grill Basket comes with 2 moveable dividers and a removable handle. The handle has a rubber grip and can attach to any of the 4 sides so you customize to your space. Quickly unsnap while smoking and then reattach to grab it out when it is done. This grill basket is easy to clean, and the removable parts store very well in my grill storage space. A must-have for summer grilling and Father’s Day!
