The Rahua nut hails from South America and for hundreds of years, women from the Quechua-Shuar tribe have been heading into the rainforest to source the nut. Why? A few drops of its oil will transform your hair, leaving it unbelievably hydrated, revitalized and glossy.
In the 1990s, New York-based hair stylist Fabian Lliguin realized this wonder product needed to be shared with the world, and he founded Rahua. Since then, the brand has become a cult favorite, loved for its 100% natural and vegan products that promise to leave your hair thicker, glossier and smoother than ever before.
Best of all, the products are produced through a sustainable partnership with local Amazonian people where the rahua nut is sourced, helping them to maintain traditional farming methods and businesses.
The collection ranges from shampoos and conditioners to styling products, body lotion and oils, hair masks, elixir and shower gel. They all smell divine, and are packed full of rahua molecules that can saturate hair and skin from the inside out. For hair, the nut oil will renew dry and damanged hair, prolong colouring and sooth irritated scalps; for skin, the oil will leave it smoother, softer and stronger.
Luckily, you don’t need to travel to the Amazon to get your Rahua fix: the brand is available in Holland via Skins Cosmetics, or internationally from Cult Beauty.
