Usually when a product is named or modeled after anything remotely related to a westernized concept of the South American amazon, it’s over-hyped and falls flat. However, this time it seems that Rahau can actually boast of genuine South American influences with their Rahua Shampoo and Conditioner that they claim is, “tribute and respect to the beautiful women of the amazon rainforest.”
Many celebrities love this line but it’s not just hype. It is formulated with a natural cleanser derived from coconut oil that cleanses gently without removing color pigmentation, strengthening damaged strands while regenerating the scalp and hair follicles.
Enriched with quinoa (yes, really) shea butter, sea salt, molasses and rahua oil, this shampoo and conditioner duo is a favorite among women who want all natural products and don’t mind spending the extra dollars on the premium and certified organic ingredients.
Key ingredients in Rahua include Rahua Elixir which instantly repairs damaged hair and speeds hair growth and Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), a centuries old calming ingredient from aged holy wood that imparts an amazingly beautiful aroma and is traditionally used in Shaman ceremonies.
The ingredients list is chock full of premium oils and extracts and makes us feel all warm inside. With so many brands jumping on the sulfate-free bandwagon, “just because”, it’s impressive that this sulfate-free shampoo has much more to tout than just being sulfate free. It avoids unnecessary chemicals, alcohols and other mysterious ingredients that you can’t even pronounce.
We tip our hats to this duo and will be trying this line as soon as we can. Even though they seem to be holding liquid gold, the bottles are pretty enough to make us want to buy this just to display them in our bathroom.
