Diving Into Eco Luxe Beauty With Rahua

I'm in a good place with my hair right now but that hasn't always been the case. I didn't used to understand that when you have really thick hair you should stay away from blunt hair cuts and there was a time when I wasn't doing my scalp any favors by washing my hair all too often. Over the years I've learned how to embrace the wavy texture of my hair and even work with it and using the right products to target specific issues. My hair generally behaves but sometimes frizz can be an issue and when your hairstyle is a bob with bangs, you want your hair to be sleek not frizzy.  Rahua recently sent me a few products that are designed to keep hair healthy, moisturized and frizz-free.

The Rahua brand was founded on a platform of environmental preservation in 2008 by husband and wife team Fabian Lliguin and Anna Ayers.  Pronounced "ra-wa",  this leading eco-luxury, clean hair and body care brand draws its name from rahua oil, a restorative natural oil derived from the Ungurahua nut native to the Amazon Rainforest. This omega-9 fatty acid rich oil which is the cornerstone ingredient of the Rahua haircare range is inspired by indigenous Amazonian beauty rituals which have utilized it for centuries in caring for their hair. All of Rahua by Amazon Beauty's clean, plant based formulations are made with pure, organic ingredients and are vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free. The brand is also committed to a philanthropic mission of protecting the Amazon rainforest, supporting indigenous tribes and sustaining the rainforest's eco-system by acquiring their ingredients through above an fair-trade agreement which helps to a build a self sustained economy and enables the native people to preserve their traditions.

I like use this mask with my Vitabrid C12 Scalp Shampoo as a weekly treatment to maintain my hair and scalp health. It  has the consistency of a creamy conditioner and works through my hair with ease. My biggest gripe with most deep conditioning treatments is how hard they are to rinse out  and that is not an issue with the Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask which rinses out cleanly and effortlessly. Best of all is how soft, shiny, manageable it leaves my hair.  I also like the lightweight plastic bottle and pump dispenser. This hair mask is a dream to use and I'm convinced it has improved the overall condition of my hair.

Yes this product appeared in my last Currently Coveting post and Rahua kindly sent it to me to try. I was interested in it because it is a mood boosting wellness perfume and it does not disappoint. Lightly sweet and woodsy, the scent is house is a sleek and elegant rollerball glass application which makes it perfect for tucking into your purse for on the go. Since it is a pure plant based perfume, it  wears more subtly than synthetic fragrances, so it can be reapplied as needed. I like to apply it onto to my pulse points and just take a deep breath in for a sensory and therapeutic experience. The scent is fresh, sophisticated and uplifting but also soothing at the same time. I love that this fragrance is really different from anything else I own and I actually do feel better when I wearing it. I've gotten a number of compliments on it as well even a few from strangers on the train.

I honestly couldn't be more impressed with these Rahua products and the wellness meets beauty approach of the brand itself. The products which are made with high quality pure, clean and natural ingredients provide a luxurious experience and work as they claim. And what's not to like about the company's admirable sustainable, ethical and eco friendly business practices. As someone who is trying to be more mindful with my purchases, this is a brand I can feel good about supporting and one I'm looking forward to getting to know better. Clean beauty is important to me because everything we put on our hair, scalp and skin gets absorbed into our bodies.  I'm absolutely obsessed with the Rahua Palo Santo Oil Perfume and Omega 9 Hair Mask! Rahua products can be purchased from Amazon, NordstromNet-A-Porter, SephoraCult Beauty, Space NK, Barneys New York,  Bloomingdales, Dermstore as well as the Rahua website.

Frizz is the bane of my life (my own fault, as my hair is bleached), so I am constantly looking for ways to work on that. While I think I have seen the brand before, I don't think I have used it yet.

It's always great to support companies that promote ethical values. I haven't heard of this brand, chingu, so thanks for the heads up:) The leave in treatment sounds perfect for my super dry hair, and also love the sound of that scent.

Shireen L. Platt said...

Honestly, I have seen this brand a lot but have yet to try anything from them. I am most intrigued by the perfume oil and the leave-in treatment!

Pilar said...

I dont think I've heard of this brand before. My hair is so frizzy especially during the Summer. The leave in conditioner sounds like it would work for my hair since frizz can cause dry hair.

Ivana Split said...

No, I haven't heard of Rahua brand before but I love their fair trade approach. Seeing they use the plants based formulas based on Amazon hair beauty secrets, it is great they are devoted to preserving the Amazon rain forest and the traditions of the local people. Moreover, their ecological and plant based approach is definitely a plus.

These hair products you presented do sound fantastic. The leave in conditioner especially so. I also like the sound of that mood boaster perfume.

I've always been curious about Rahua products so thank you for this review! I'm always hesitant to use masks on my scalp because I'm worried it'll leave a residue and make my roots greasy, so I'm glad to know that's not the case with Rahua's mask!
