Rahua Shampoo, Conditioner and Omega 9 Mask
|I’ve got backups, don’t worry!|
I love this range. And luckily for me, my hair loves it too. My hair is coloured, porous and prone to frizziness, and Rahua hair products deal with it admirably. Rahua nut oil is well-known for its hair care properties owing the small size of the molecules which help it penetrate the hair shaft, and the basic Rahua range (as opposed to the Voluminous – my hair does NOT need volumising!) is great for not stripping hair colour and leaves hair in fab condition after using.
Rahua products are organic, 100% natural, and free from synthetics, parabens and sulfates as well as being vegan. Alongside all that, every sale benefits native tribes, who harvest the rahua nuts the range is named after, in the Amazon.
The shampoo and conditioner both have a gentle slightly nutty-woody scent that’s partially derived from the palo santo oil that works alongside the rahua oil to protect and strengthen hair, and the Omega 9 Mask (which I use interchangably with the conditioner) has a sharper, slightly more citrus, but still subtle fragrance, and they’re all a pleasure to use. The shampoo lathers nicely, and the conditioner/mask both noticably nourish my hair without stripping the colour, and I like using them a lot. My hair is better behaved because of them, even if I am not. Also, none of them irritate my sensitive scalp, which is a huge bonus!
The price point is a little wince-inducing, starting at £30 for the shampoo, and creeping up to around £50 for the mask, but a little of each goes a long way (and I alternate using these with cheaper products such as Shea Moisture, and they last a very, very long time as a result. These bottles are actually products I’ve been using since last year. It helps), and as your hair is the one accessory you take absolutely everywhere with you, I’m a firm believer in treating it well.
You can find Rahua products at Cult Beauty. Try the shower gel too, it’s lovely!
