Before I even thought about changing my toothpaste, I was searching for a natural, sulphate-free shampoo + conditioner to clean up my Pantone routine.
That was hard.
Even the so-called “natural” shampoos that were sulphate-free were still full of other sketchy chemicals. And the organic ones I found at Wholefoods were frankly disappointing. It took half a bottle to feel like something was happening. I was about to give up and go back to CVS when I discovered Rahua on a beauty blog.
Apparently, their secret sauce is down to an Omega-9 rich ungurahua nut, found in the Amazon Rainforest. How cool is that?
I’m not gonna lie, the gorgeous packaging stopped me dead in my tracks, I mean, most shampoo bottles are just plain ugly, but this looks like a bottle of expensive perfume! I finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase and I was giddy with anticipation. Would it smell like a weird bulk spice at the health food store? Be flat and boring? Leave my hair oily or too dry?
Well, let me just tell you: IT’S AWESOME. It’s truly the best natural/organic shampoo I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried most of them). It leaves my dry hair soft and shiny but not flat or oily, and the smell is be-yond. So good. I don’t know how they made a 100% natural, vegan and ORGANIC shampoo + conditioner behave like the toxic stuff, but they managed it. You just need a little bit of product to work it onto a luxurious lather. I only wash 3 times a week, so it lasts me forever.
I liked it so much, I also bought the Leave-In Hair Treatment to use as a hair mask overnight and the Cream Wax to replace my creepy alcohol-laden hair gel for ponytail days.
I’m a total convert. Am never going back. It’s a little more expensive, to be sure, but you know what? #imworthit
