My hair has become something of an obsession recently, and now, thankfully, I’m obsessed with it for all the right reasons!
First up are the new additions to one of my all-time hair-care favourite ranges, Rahua. If you don’t already know about Rahua, you can read up on it HERE and HERE. In essence, if you care about putting only natural ingredients on your hair, this is the one for you. It’s 100% natural, 100% vegan, free of synthetics, paragons and sulphates, and unlike some of its competitors, (some of which I must admit to using – ahem!), it’s totally free of silicone too. It’s not the cheapest, but from my experience, your hair will pay you back three-fold and more.
Anyhow, the new products are the Omega 9 Hair Mask and the Wax, which will be available from late-summer. (August for the Hair Mask, September for the Wax).
Essentially, the Hair Mask is a weekly treatment that will ‘undo’ all the harm we inflict on our hair on daily basis – no point skulking away in the back over there, you know who you are. Just one application of the Omega 9 Hair Mask, £47 for 178ml/6oz, (combined with using the original shampoo and conditioner and a spritz of the Voluminous Spray) and my hair was shiny, bountiful and frizz-free. A DIY blow-dry would normally see my hair frizzing up by the end of the day, but the photo at the top of this page was taken three days after the blow-dry, and still no frizz. That’ll be thanks to the lack of nasty silicone!
The Hair Wax (£26 for 89ml/3oz), of which I have small sample, literally feels like a moisturiser for the hair. No stickiness, no tackiness, just a smooth, creamy drink for the skin that also has incredible natural-feeling hold without drying the hair out at all. On the contrary, it feels like it’s doing my hair so much good. My hair is long, and I tend to shy away from waxes, as I feel they work better on shorter hair, but this one gets my vote.

I know these are more expensive than a lot of hair products on the market, but a little goes a long way, and you really see the difference it makes to the hair.
What do you think? Would you splurge on these? Or perhaps just one or two bits from the range? Let me know!
All available from Urban Retreat, the Mask from August and the Wax from September.
