Rahua Color Full Shampoo And Conditioner

OK, so I’ll start with the fact that these two pretty bottles you see in front of you are the most expensive hair care duo that I’ve owned. Ever. Seriously, like I mentioned in the past, when it comes to hair products I use, I’m not adventurous at all. Which means I’m happy with my basic, averagely-priced organic hair products (usually, from Desert Essence, Lavera or sometimes an occasional splurge from John Masters). However, recently I wanted to switch things up a little, so I went for something more high-end: Rahua Color Full Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve tried Rahua haircare before, only in smaller size containers (read the review here), which left me wanting to try more from this brand.

I chose the Rahua Color Full Shampoo because I dye my hair blond, and even though my hairdresser and I try to take good care of my hair as much as we can, it still can get scorched at the ends. So I thought a shampoo for colored hair, especially the one containing goodies like Rahua and morete oils, would favor my hair most (that, and I also have already tried other shampoos from their range, so I was intrigued by one that I haven’t). My very first impression of this shampoo was that it’s so runny. I’ve tried shaking the bottle in hopes that it would help somehow, but no – the consistency is just runny, which usually means that you’ll need more product to clean the hair. And I was right, I needed twice as much shampoo than with my usual thicker shampoos. Knowing how pricy the shampoo is, I consider it a huge downside. Moving on to the scent – I like it a lot, it’s different from many other natural shampoos: earthy, warm, sensational gardenia.

Now, as for performance, this is hard for me to admit, but unfortunately, it doesn’t work for me – it dries out my hair like crazy. I don’t know how this is even possible, but it feels like it’s the most drying shampoo out of all Rahua shampoos. Other than that, it cleans the hair ok, but I don’t know what I’d do without Rahua Color Full Conditioner. I call it my purchase of the year because it’s just absolutely amazing in every way! It’s everything a conditioner for dry and colored hair is supposed to be:
* thick, but not too heavy
* deeply moisturizes the hair, but, again, doesn’t feel too heavy
* it makes the hair shiny and visibly reduces frizz

I did not expect to be wowed like this, but this conditioner is worth every cent and more.

You can get Rahua Full Color Shampoo ($38/£30) and Conditioner ($40/£32) for 275ml at Rahua, The Detox Market, Sephora or at any other Rahua retailer near you.

Have you tried this shampoo and/or conditioner? What’s the most expensive hair care product that you’ve splurged on?

Thanks for the honest review – I will definitely purchase the conditioner based on your review. I have a hugely sensitive scalp and finding the right shampoo seems to be a life-long mission!
