While still on the search for a product that will actually give us longer legs, in the meantime, we’ll be satisfied with discovering the secret to picture perfect, thick, flowing, lustrous hair. From the depths of the Amazon forest comes the Rahua (ra-wa) nut from which restorative oils are found that revitalize and repair hair cuticles leaving you with smooth and oh-so-silky strands.
The Rahua line, based on this potent beauty secret from the Amazon, was developed by renowned stylist and colorist, Fabian Lliguin, a native Ecuadorian with a deep-rooted relationship with the Amazonian forest (he’s also the founder of ecoagents, a non-profit created to defend and protect the Amazon Rainforest, its people and ancient culture from damage, pollution, and further destruction).
But the rahua nut isn’t the only wonder ingredient used in the product line. The Rahua shampoo ($32) contains sea salt to gently exfoliate and improve scalp circulation, while the conditioner ($34) uses green tea to protect from UV-ray exposure. For a complete strengthening solution, try the finishing treatment ($45) with raspberry leaf extract (antioxidants that nourish and repair) and rice bran wax (retains moisture). For super stressed locks, there’s the Rahua Elixir – a 1 oz. bottle of highly concentrated rahua nut oil and ungurahua oil – that promises to restore hair to gorgeous in 15 minutes ($175).
