Rahua Beauty Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner First Impressions #HydratewithRahua

A little while ago I did a blog post on the Rahua Classic Shampoo and Conditioner (see that here). I was absolutely blown away at first use. Well, it turns out the brand just released a new Shampoo and Conditioner set called Hydration made to quench the thirst of really dry hair. This is such an accurate description of my hair I couldn't wait to get these products in my shower. Read on for more.



In case you did not see my other blog post, here is some background information about the brand from the "About Us" section of their website:

"All Rahua® products are vegan, organic, sulfate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free and support indigenous economies. Amazon Beauty® is dedicated to the preservation of the Amazon rainforest and the indigenous people that live there. In the process of bringing the Amazon’s greatest products to you, Amazon Beauty® Inc. has committed itself to building sustainable communities and creating learning centers within the Amazon rainforest."

All of their products are vegan, organic, sulfate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free and silicone-free! Additionally, all of the products also preserve and restore the hair with organic, nourishing superfoods.

The Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner were designed for those with dry, porous and stressed hair (aka me, me and oh yeah- also me!!!) The brand says that the duo "delivers a powerful punch of moisture to replenish, nourish and revive hair. Its exclusive formula works deep into the strands to smooth hair cuticles, prevent frizz and impart generous shine"


FEATURED INGREDIENTS
(from the press release)
"For intense hydration, Rahua’s exclusive hydration complex combines three potent, hand-harvested, rainforest grown oils; Rahua, Sacha Inchi and Morete, with protein-bonding sugars derived from organic Mango Juice"


PRODUCT BENEFITS
-Deliver maximum hydration
-Smooth hair cuticle
-Prevent Frizz
-Add Shine


SCENT
These products smell incredible. The mango and passion fruit combo smells like a fresh made smoothie and I have to remind myself not to drink them! The aroma is so juicy and delicious. This fragrance is high up there on my favorite hair product scents for sure.




HYDRATION SHAMPOO

Them: "Created to replenish the driest, thirstiest hair, this rich and creamy formula is infused with our plant-powered complex crafted with rare Amazonian oils and natural protein-bonding sugars that drive hydration deep into each strand of hair. Scented with the tropical aromas of passion fruit and mango, this innovative formula leaves scalp hydrated and balanced and hair stronger, healthier, smoother and shinier."


Me: Whoa. You guys, this shampoo is so incredibly rich, much like a co-wash (conditioning wash, cleansing conditioner, etc) yet, it produces a nice sulfate free lather!! How awesome! I don't think I can recall another lathering shampoo that is so rich. I massaged it into my scalp for a couple minutes and let it sit there while washing my body. Once I rinsed, my hair felt clean, soft and SO MOISTURIZED. I may have been able to skip conditioner, that is how moisturized it felt. But of course, since my hair is super dry, frizzy and high porosity, I did no such thing and still followed up with the conditioner. This shampoo is not only rich, it is also potent so I only need a little bit. This bottle is going to last me a nice, long time. I really like it!


HYDRATION CONDITIONER

Them: "Created to replenish the driest, thirstiest hair, this rich and creamy formula is infused with our plant-powered complex crafted with rare Amazonian oils and natural protein-bonding sugars that drive hydration deep into each strand of hair. Scented with the tropical aromas of passion fruit and mango, this innovative formula softens, de-tangles and tames hair, leaving it manageable and stronger, healthier, smoother and shinier."

Me: The lovely folks at Rahua told me this conditioner can also double as a mask if I wanted to leave it in longer. I inquired about using it as a leave in and they told me I could try, but for some hair that may be too heavy. Knowing my super thirsty hair, I had a feeling it would not be too heavy as a leave in and I was correct. The conditioner is as rich as it's Shampoo companion, yet it spreads into my hair easily and provided incredible slip in the process. I applied it to my soaking wet hair once I rinsed the shampoo and applied in small sections, adding in more water as I have been doing lately so that my hair would feel and look like wet seaweed. I found the conditioner to be pretty potent too, but I still needed to use more than the Shampoo. It makes sense really, since I bring my Conditioner all the way down my length and with Shampoos I do not. I also concentrate Conditioner on my ends and front, frizzier hairline pieces. Still, I didn't need to use as much of this Conditioner as I do with others. This Conditioner works amazing as a conditioner/masque/leave-in hybrid and also is time saving for me not needing to apply a separate masque, leave that in a while, rinse it and then go in with a different product as a leave in.


WASH DAY
For this wash day, to get the feel of the Rahua Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, I stuck with styling products I know and love and also did not add any additional frizz fighters to see how the frizz fighting properties of the Hydration products worked.

  • Cleanser: Rahua Hydration Shampoo
  • Conditioner: Rahua Hydration Conditioner (left in)
  • Stylers: Jessicurl Oil Blend, Spiralicious Gel

After applying the Conditioner on wet hair in small sections with my head upright, I then flipped my hair over completely to apply the styling products. Followed up with wrapping my hair in a cotton towel while doing my skincare. Once that was done, I removed the hair from my towel and scrunched more and let air dry completely.

These pictures were taken outside in natural light with no additional lighting or flash or anything. My roots were still a wee bit damp.

VIDEO REVIEW


As much as I loved the Rahua Classic Shampoo and Conditioner, I think the Rahua Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner bring those results to another level with the smoothing, frizz fighting and hydrating properties. My hair felt soft, was bouncy, shiny and lasted for days, even through work outs! I'm dying to try more from this line now and I look forward to seeing what continued use does for my hair and will be sure to post an update.
