I lately wrote concerning the beautiful Rahua line of hair and physique care that’s centered round rahua oil. I examined a number of physique merchandise that I like and couldn’t wait to strive the hair care merchandise for the reason that Rahua line was created by the well-known New York hair stylist/colorist Fabian Lliguin. He was within the Amazon doing environmental work when he realized the ladies all had fabulous hair that was past waist size. They informed him it was all due to rahua oil which their tribe had used for centuries. So Fabian introduced some again to the US and was astounded on the outcomes the oil had on his shoppers. He and his spouse Anna Ayers created the Rahua model and the Quechua-Shuar tribe produces the rahua oil for them in the identical precise sustainable approach they’ve for generations.
The star of the Rahua hair merchandise is unquestionably the Rahua Elixir ($175). If that is in your price range, I simply can’t suggest it sufficient. It’s like a rainforest miracle in a bottle. The oil is tremendous concentrated, and a tiny bit offers instant outcomes – it makes broken hair smooth and wholesome trying, and it calms sore, itchy scalps and helps hair develop sooner. The formulation is filled with antioxidants and antibacterials, and it additionally retains hair colour tremendous vibrant. The scent is the beautiful freshness of Palo Santo oil.
