Trying New Brands // Rahua Amazon Beauty

Oh man, blurry photos are the bain of my existence. I didn’t realise until editing that every single one is slightly out of focus so I do appolgise for the shoddy photography in this post. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Since having the snip (my hair, obvs!), I have found that the majority of the products I was using for my damaged, dry tresses have become too heavy for my now short - healthier than it was - hair. I try a lot of shampoos, conditioners and the like, but it's never been something that I've put too much effort into - in terms of buying certain brands. Ordinarily, I always buy whatever is on offer, or any haircare I may have acquired, depending on whether it's really suitable for my hair type. More recently, I have decided that I need to give my hair the tender loving care that I also give my skin, and up the ante in terms of products. This is where luxury haircare brand Rahua Amazon Beauty swoops in and saves the day, because being introduced to these products has been the best thing for my hair in a while. I recognise the importance of using natural haircare, more so with my overly coloured barnet, but I have always found natural shampoos a little hard to work with. I think this is because when I had longer hair they were harder to distribute without lathering...

The key to Rahua’s formula is its molecular structure, which has worked wonders on my hair. Unlike other botanical oils that simply coat strands, the small Rahua oil molecule deeply penetrates the hair’s cortex to bond and repair, while simultaneously smoothing the hair’s cuticle. Post use, everything just seemed that much smoother and really manageable.

The Rahua Voluminous Shampoo (£27)* and Rahua Voluminous Conditioner (£28)* offer a 100% natural and organic formula that cleanses to create body and bounce. I genuinely could probably get away with using the shampoo on its own every so often as it's very hydrating, which is crazy because my hair eats moisture and I usually have to put on tons of conditioner. My conditioner always runs out before shampoo, I deem it weird for me if it doesn't (something I may see change with this duo). Both products are colour safe and when using, the water ran clear, which is unusual for my hair. My hair felt so soft after using these products, as well as shiny and voluminous. I couldn’t quite believe the difference since it has been feeling really heavy and limp lately. My hair was also appearing greasier, even after hair wash day, but this issue has now been nipped in the bud so to speak.

I have also been really impressed with the Rahua Voluminous Dry Shampoo (£30), which comes in a really innovative eco-squeeze bottle (which is recyclable). I must admit, I have always been a Batiste kinda girl, but lately I have been realising how unpleasant the powder build-up can be on the hair. The Rahua version, albeit a little bit pricy, not only adds volume when applied at the root – and great grip for styling - but the gluten-free and vegan formula utilises organic ingredients to provide a light cleanse that absorbs oil, dirt and build-up. There is no strong scent with this either (more so a light vanilla), which is particularly pleasant and a nice change to the overpowering dry shampoo scents I’ve become familiar with. I think, due to the price, I will be using this sparingly, but definitely one to have in the stash.
