So, when when GOOP showcased some of Rahua’s products in a recent newsletter and offered 15% off at b-glowing.com (use code goophair, valid until June 23, 2012), I took this opportunity to get the Rahua Voluminous Shampoo, Conditioner, and Voluminous Hair Spray.
I’ve used the products for about a month now, and I’m loving the Voluminous Shampoo and hair spray. The shampoo lathers up well and has a pleasant, light scent. It comprises of the following components (from the Rahua website):
- Lemongrass and Green tea create body, volume and bounce by balancing and removing excess oils from the hair shaft, without compromising the integrity of the hair.
- Citric juices break down oils extending time between washes.
- Ungurahua oil is rich in Omega-9 and helps to restore, heal, moisturize and strengthen hair follicles and shaft, resulting in stronger, healthier hair.
- Jojoba adds moisturizing properties and nourishment to the hair.
- Lavender and eucalyptus provide an aromatheraputic component
It’s also nice and thick, which I like with my shampoo/conditioner products. I’m not sure what it’s doing for me on the volume front, since I have coarse hair; I only decided to buy the Voluminous shampoo after reading reviews that the Rahua Shampoo (non-volumizing formula) is too thick for everyday use. I would definitely repurchase the shampoo – especially if there’s a discount, because at $32, it’s very pricey.
The conditioner ($34) is nice – it detangles and is, again, nice and thick – but the scent is off-putting. It’s a strong sort of nutty smell, and I don’t like it. I might try to switch to the Voluminous Conditioner to see if the scent is better. Its components are:
- Rahua oil fortifies weak, damaged strands while nourishing and regenerating the scalp and hair follicles.
- Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) offers delicate fragrance – providing a soothing aromatherapy experience while conditioning.
- Quinoa promotes healing and moisture retention.
- Green tea leaf extract (Camellia Oleifera) mitigates damage from UV-ray exposure.
- Aloe Barbadensis moisturizes, energizes and regenerates lackluster manes to renewed vibrancy.
The hair spray ($28) is more like a light styling spray. If you are looking for serious hold, this is definitely not the product for you. It gives a touchable, light hold and is not sticky. I use it before and after styling with a blow dryer and curling iron. My hair keeps its shape and is soft throughout the day.
I would recommend Rahua products to anyone looking for luxury organic hair care.
