Few things can compare in this world to a head of beautiful shiny, healthy hair.
Hopefully you already possess that.
However if you feel that you don’t, there are several approaches to attempting to improve the health of your hair.
One pathway is to focus on vitamin supplements.
The top choices are the B vitamins, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, B6 and B12, which are responsible for strengthening hair follicles and increasing circulation to the skin.
Another approach is to focus in on foods.
Fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel are loaded with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Tasty Greek yogurt also has B5 that helps with blood flow to your scalp that may aid hair growth.
Dark green leafy vegetables like spinach is full of quality nutrients. It supplies ample vitamin A, plus iron, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C.
Hair craves iron. You can find this important element in fortified cereal, grains, and pastas.
There are other healthy foods that contribute to healthy hair and it is worth taking the time to do a little more research on that subject.
Once we feel that our hair is fully fortified, another important step in keeping it vibrant is what you use to wash and condition your hair.
The most common reason for using shampoo is to remove the unwanted build-up of sebum in the hair without stripping out so much as to make hair unmanageable.
According to the informative source purecosmetics.info, here are chemicals that should be avoided when purchasing your shampoo:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS), Fragrance (Synthetic perfumes)
Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Triclosan, Polysorbates, Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)
Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Retinyl Palmitate, Dimethicone
Behentrimonium Chloride and Quaternium-15, to name a few.
The above chemicals are worth looking up. Virtually all of them in high doses are not only dangerous to your hair but also to your overall health as well.
From all that we’ve researched, the healthiest shampoos are organic.
When manufactured properly, organic shampoo gently infuse your hair follicles and skin cells with natural minerals, herbal extracts, and oils.
In our search for the crown jewel of organic shampoos, one exceptional candidate is Rahua.
Here are two reviews found at the great review site influenster.com:
“Tried this product out once at my best friend’s when I slept over. Honestly, couldn’t think of a better way to take care of my hair. It’s natural and it’s evident: the label is not text heavy and this says a lot. I try to look for products that do not overdue it with the labeling, when a brand says too much on the packaging, they’re generally trying to distract you from something. Rahua goes straight to the point: I smelled it and trusted it immediately.”
Here is one more.
“This shampoo smelled so nice. It felt good in my hair. The scent is long lasting. It is best for dry scalp because mine is super dry but long and thick. It doesn’t make your scalp itchy at all. The chemical is herbal which really helps. So love it!”
We love what we are hearing so we’re going to wash our hair and then stop by their website. At rahua.com they are happy to explain what they are all about. “Rahua products—known for their pure ingredients and unparalleled performance—would not be available today if not for a marvelous confluence of events. Fabian Lliguin, a renowned hairstylist and colorist in New York City was visiting the Amazon rainforest as an environmentalist, educating indigenous people about their land rights and human rights when he realized he was surrounded by women with fantastically long, lustrous hair that cascaded past their waists.”
Their story is filled with adventure and intrigue. We want to hear more.
They continue, “The secret, the women told Fabian, was rahua oil. For centuries the members of the tribe, who live deep within the rainforest, had relied on this oil to nourish their hair and skin.
The women gave Fabian one bottle of rahua oil, which he carefully transported back to New York in his suitcase. In his salon on Fifth Avenue, he decided—as an experiment, and without any expectations—to use the oil as a treatment for a client with extremely dry, damaged hair. After 10 minutes, her hair was completely transformed: from brittle and lifeless to healthy, shiny, and bouncy. Fabian was as shocked as his client. Here was solid proof that this ingredient, used for centuries, produced tangible results.
Fabian knew he had something very special on his hands and knew too that he needed to handle it with respect. Rahua oil was -and is- produced by the Quechua-Shuar tribe in the same complex, ritualistic, and sustainable fashion it has been for generations. Fabian, who had long worked to support the rainforest’s indigenous people, didn’t want to disrupt this process.”
What an incredible story. We’ve read a lot of company story pages and we’ve never run across one quite like this.
Fabian’s wife would later partner up with him on running the business. The team smiles, “In 2008 Anna Ayers—Fabian’s wife and business partner—came onboard, joining her expertise as a fashion designer and New York-based trend forecaster to Fabian’s as a hairstylist and colorist to design a purposeful beauty experience for consumers around the world. Together they launched the Rahua brand, drawing on the wisdom of a legendary people to formulate a singular line of innovative, plant-based products to heal, nourish, beautify, and transform.
Today, more than 500 families from the Quechua-Shuar, Achuar, and neighboring tribes work with Fabian and Anna to cultivate the rainforest grown ingredients used in the Rahua hair care and body care collections.”
You have to admit, they do possess a very unique history.
We are very impressed with the lengths they have gone to bring an organic and healthy product to market. They truly are innovative, committed risk takers.
Their customers are the beneficiaries as a result.
Your hair is valuable. Beautiful hair is a blessing.
Perhaps you’ve always wanted to visit the Amazon. Thankfully, Rahua has brought the Amazon to you.
