MMM: Rahua – The Totally-Sort-Your-Hair-Out Treatment

I reckon I get chance to go to the hairdresser’s every couple of months and by the time comes I am desperate to get there and look almost normal again.

After a particularly disastrous cut just over a year ago, I’ve been trying to get my hair back into the default ‘messy bob.’ It’s involved some tears, many, many days of tying it up and tracking down a great hairdresser.

All the colouring has taken it’s toll though and over the past couple of years I have noticed a real change in my hair’s texture – not to mention an abundance of grey – err, hello?

Last week I was invited down to the beautiful Atelier Josh Wood to try out an Omega 9 Pro Hair Treatment from organic brand Rahua (Ra-wa). Pleading complete ignorance, I confess to never having heard of the US range – but with results claiming to sort out dry and damaged strands, add bounce, elasticity, smooth and make colour last longer, I was there quicker than you could say ‘blow dry.’

The range is based around the rahua nut found in the Amazon rainforest, whose restorative oil helps the tribal women maintain thick, lustrous hair.

While most shampoos have silicone in their ingredients which just coat the hair, Rahua apparently has an amazing molecular structure which has the ability to penetrate, bond and repair the hair while smoothing the cuticle.

Totally loved the Finishing Treatment, which works as a pre-blow dry heat protector as well as a bit of a wax-affair post blow-dry

Profits made from the products also go back to helping the tribes in the Amazon with humanitarian works including education and human rights issues.

This was me post blow-dry. Big Hair Don’t Care or what?

It lasted me four whole days which was pretty impressive.

Definitely worth checking out at Josh Wood if you fancied a bit of a hair treat.

Thanks to them for inviting me down to try it out.

    Oh wow – gorgeous hair! I have recently started paying more attention to my hair products and all the SLS’s in them so it’s great to read about this organic product. By the looks of you hair after, it’s worth investing in x
