Priyanka Chopra wrote that she has been working on the brand for the last 18 months and added that her haircare products will be available at affordable prices. “This is ANOMALY. What a surreal moment to introduce you to the first brand I have ever created! For the last 18 months, I have worked alongside my partners at Maesa toward the day when we could share our labor of love with the world, and I can’t believe that time has finally arrived. I’ve tried a lot and learned a lot about hair care over the years…what gave me great hair days, what didn’t, and everything in between…and I have infused that into a collection of products that gives your hair the TLC it deserves. Our formulas are vegan and clean, with high-performance ingredients, and our bottles are made from 100% plastic trash from our oceans and landfills.” She wrote.
