Rahua Hydration Haircare Collection

Rahua Hydration Haircare Collection
We're excited to welcome the new Rahua Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner to the Rahua haircare collection.

After 3 years of product innovation, they have unleashed the power of natural ingredients once again, to develop a specialized line for dry, porous and stressed hair.

For intense moisture, their exclusive hydration complex combines three potent, hand-harvested, rainforest grown oils; Rahua, Sacha Inchi and Morete, with protein-bonding sugars derived from organic mango and passion fruit. The exclusive formula works deep into the strands to smooth hair cuticles, prevent frizz and impart generous shine. With each usage, hair will look and feel smoother and shinier, as well as stronger and healthier, while the sweet smell of tropical fruit enliven the senses!

Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner was designed for those in search of products to revitalize parched hair, whether from over-processing, environmental stressors or the changing seasons. Rahua's mission is to formulate an exclusive natural, plant-powered answer to re-hydrate strands and the Rahua® Hydration line is the result of that goal.

There a number of factors that contribute to hair dryness. If you shampoo too often, especially if you use shampoo with sulfates and conventional synthetics, hair is stripped of its natural oils. If you heat style often, that of course removes moisture, as well as chemical and color treatments, which leaves your hair weak and stressed.  Even if you do not partake in these regimes often, environmental stressors like overexposure to the sun and the changing of the seasons can create hair and scalp imbalances, which leads to thirsty hair.

CUE HYDRATION! Your thirsty hair solution is here.  We recommend Hydration for all types of hair that experience any level of dryness.  Depending on your hair type, it is efficacious to switch off between our Hydration line and your other Rahua shampoo favorites!

Sunscreen and Coral

Hawaii is on track to ban two ingredients found in sunscreen that have been proven to kill coral reefs and marine life - Oxybenzone and octinoxate. Beginning in 2021.
More info here.

Consider being proactive and purchase more environmentally friendly sunscreen now, without these ingredients, no matter where you live. If it's not good for the reefs and other marine life, what may it be doing to lakes and streams?

We're a huge fan of Suntegrity. They use zinc oxide.

Do you know about lavender?

Wicked Calm - StormSister Spatique 3waybeauty
Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.

As flowers get a late start here in MN this spring, we have the worst case of spring fever ever!
I was just reading that our farmers' market has a new vendor this year and he has all kids of lavender goods.

Mmmmm, lavender. Pure lavender is one of my happy places. That and lilac, but there is no natural lilac essential oil available yet, so lavender it is!

Remember how mom used to rub Vicks VapoRub on our chest when we had a cold as a child? Well, we like to do almost that exact same thing, but with the melted oil from our Wicked Calm candle. The warmth from the GMO-free soy with our 7-lavender blend essential oil is pure heaven and helps us sleep.
7 Essentials - StormSister Spatique 3waybeauty
It's also lovely to rub on your feet before putting on socks, and, if that weren't enough, a couple of drops of the Wicked Calm candle oil rubbed into cuticles at night is another soothing way to prepare for bedtime.

This single-blend, French lavender is also delightful and works well in your home or car diffuser. This plug-in model replaces those popular store-bought fragrance dispensers.

Sometimes I hear that someone doesn't like the smell of lavender. Before you rule it out, be certain you have experienced true lavender essential oil and not a lavender fragrance oil. Sadly, this can be difficult as I have even had product makers tell me that their soap or spray or essential oil blend is "100% natural" when this nose knows it isn't.

When working with a pure essential oil, one drop may be all you need to start. EO's pack quite the punch.

Therapeutic properties aside for many, it just smells good.

Enjoy.
