Anu Essentials is founded by Anu Prestonia, the acclaimed beauty-industry innovator specializing in natural hair care. For decades now she has helped to popularize artistic natural hairstyling in the United States and abroad. Anu founded the internationally known Khamit Kinks a natural hair-care salon, whose emphasis on the health of their client’s hair has always a guiding principle.
In keeping with the foundation of healthy options for the whole person, Anu launched her line of natural hair and body care products in the summer of 2012. The Anu Essentials product line is an outgrowth of Anu’s passion for the beauty and power of essences created by nature. Anu is inspired by botanicals for the purposes of nourishing, healing and beautifying and believes these substances are amazing treasures given to us by the Creator for our delight and for healing.
Anu has enjoyed the discovery process and the artistry of blending botanicals to formulate products for the hair, skin and also for creating her new passion, natural perfumes. Having worked with botanicals for more than 30 years infusing them in her products, Anu continues to be fascinated by the alluring pull of herbs and essences, and believes their healing powers and fragrant aromas are a sacred gift to us all.
Anu is also a certified Hatha Yoga Instructor, A Reiki Practitioner, and a lover of nature.
