Exotic Amazon-centric Haircare, Customized:
What’s your hair type? When it comes to pro-style hair products, one size doesn’t fit all.
This holiday season Rahua offers four different types of exotic “rainforest grown” shampoos and conditioners from the Amazon rain forest. These are made of botanicals and oils from the Amazon rainforest,
Customize Your Hair Gift:
Customize a gift with the Rahua Customizable Daily HairCare Kit. You can choose shampoos and conditioners from 4 different 22ML oz.travel- sized Rahua shampoo/conditioners: Classic, Color Full, Voluminous and Hydration. Pick and choose among the various lines that work for you or the people on your gift list.
Reach for Rahua:
I often reach for the Rahua Classic Shampoo and Conditioner, good for all hair types. It’s made with omega-9 rich Rahua oil and I love the natural, fresh, woodsy aroma of Palo Santo oil. This set is hydrating, but not too oily, and not too dry.
However, I also have color-treated hair, and my signature red in particular needs extra TLC. Sometimes I choose Rahu ColorFull.
This color-preserving shampoo has Morete oils from the Amazon rainforest to nourish and strengthen an botanicals to hydrate and protect. It’s also luxuriously scented with the exotic fragrance of gardenia flowers.
For lifeless, limp hair revive it with Rahua Voluminous. Fight Frizz and offer your curls and waves even more bounce. Key Ingredients include Vitamin E, Green Tea, Jojoba, Panthenol, Shea Butter, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Vitamin C, and Aloe Vera.
For hair that’s really dry there is Rahua Hydration. Breathe new life into dry hair Rahua’s plant-powered complex. Amazonian oils and natural protein-bonding sugars super-hydrate. The creamy formula also is beautifully scented with passion fruit and mango.

Amazonian Bliss for Your Hair:
RG Cosmetics was created by hair stylists with a goal to develop a haircare line that would bring together years of industry knowledge with cutting-edge hair science.
They have a variety of product lines. The reparative treatments transform hair to make it healthier. However, the line that truly brings bliss to bad hair that needs TLC s their Amazon Advanced line.
There are some powerful oil extracts that are found in the Amazon
Check Out These RG Hairecare Products:
Amazonian extracts are the basis for RG HairCare’s four Amazon Advanced lines. These are: Maracujá, Pracaxi, Murumuru, and Patauá,
The Praxaxi products with Pracaxi Oil are for dry hair. Pracaxi has been known as ‘natural silicone,’ because it adds a protective layer around hair fibers.
The Patua Line is for hair that is damaged and fragile. The Pataua palm tree is native to tje Amazon. The rich oil from the tree helps to strengthen the hair. Pataua is also a natural heat protectant.
Oily hair needs Maracuja products. They cleanse, balance and revive hair, without stripping it. This Maracuja line is made from passionfruit oil. The smell will take make you feel so pampered, but it’s also full of good for your hair vitamins and minerals as well as being a strong antioxidant.
The Murumuru line conditions hair with the key ingredient of Murumuru. This is a native Amazonian fruit. While the Murumuru line is great for all hair types, murumuru butter really moisturizes hair and scalp for healthier hair no matter what kind it is.
I tested all of these products and found them to be luxurious and effective. They’re not inexpensive ranging in price from $25 to $70, but well worth this splurge, especially as a gift idea. For more information visit the RG Cosmetics web site
Scalp Care Is Trending!
Usually, we think of precious serums as being for the face, but Revive Activating Serum by Collective Laboratories is a serum for your hair, 20 years in the making.
The nicely packaged serum in a cardboard presentation box is targeted to boosting hair growth for thinning hair (and issue for many women as well as men).
However, this vegan and cruelty-free serum can help anyone’s hair look instantly more volumized with a botanical formula including amino acids and minerals and without sulfates, or parabens.
Alternative to Synthetics:
What I like about the serum is that it is a unique alternative to so many synthetic treatments on the market. The brown glass bottle with a stopper is one you can leave on your bathroom shelf without embarrassment.
Although I can’t quantify the amount of hair growth, there are plenty of good things in this serum to help boost hair growth and hair health.
Add this serum to dry or towel-dried hair, massage, rinse your hands, feel warming on your scalp (or not) blow-dry your scalp-DONE!
Note: this is being sold by subscription. You will need to cancel if you just want one bottle. The chances are if you try it and you see better hair and faster growth, you’ll want more than one bottle, anyway. We just want to give you a heads up! Visit the Collective Laboratories Web Site.
ApHogee Pampers Damaged Hair (and More):
When you have curly hair, it can often also be dry. But KAB Brand’s ApHogee specializes in haircare products that treat and repair damaged hair, and also tends to the special needs of textured hair.
All ApHogee products are cruelty-free, never tested on animals and safe on color-treated and chemically-treated hair.
I tried the balance Moisturizer Post-shampoo conditioning. If your hair is dry or damaged it’s a must-try.
ApHogee Balancing Moisturizer (16 oz/$9.95) seals in moisture while adding strength and bringing back elasticity to damaged and dry hair.
It contains ApHogee’s exclusive Pro-Phytamine complex. That’s a blend of collagen amino acids, emollients, vitamin derivatives and herbal extracts that infuse moisture deep into the hair fiber, making it look healthier, softer and smoother
In my photo are also two must-haves for those who crave curls which I didn’t get a chance to try before writing this article,
However, based on my experience with the ApHogee Balancing Moisture I am confident that these products will also address the specific needs for curly hair.
The AphOgeeCurlific Hydrating Curl Serum is a finishing serum that offers light control, and a lot of hydration and shine, You need just a nickel-sized amount on towel-dried hair so the 6 gl. oz. bottle lasts a long time.
Also in my photo is Curlific Curl Definer, a leave-in conditioner (use just a pea sized amount or more if your hair is really long and/or thick).
Frizz will also be reduced (or eliminated). Get those curly bouncing, add shine, and keep hair hydrated without frizz.
ApHogee is available at Sally Beauty Supply stores nationwide and other beauty supply stores and fine salons. For more information, visit us online at www.Aphogee.com
