This week we were in the Aquatics Centre, watching Michael Phelps become the most decorated Olympian in history and cheering on Team GB with everything we had when it struck us, what do these swimmers do to keep their hair in shape with all that chlorine exposure?
Chlorine is a killer for hair and excess exposure will leave it feeling dry and brittle. If you've been inspired by those athletes powering through the water, it's time to invest in a heavy-duty hair oil to keep your locks strong and shiny.
Rahua is named after Rahua oil, an intensely hydrating oil found in the Amazon. Their Elixir is utterly pure and exceptionally rich. 100% natural, it's the solution of all solutions to the toughest hair-care challenges. It can be used as a poof-taming shine serum on dry hair, as an overnight treatment to repair hair, as a scalp treatment for healthy hair growth, or as a 3 minute pre-shampoo oil treatment.
This hair oil blends together grape seed and jojoba oil to nourish hair, protein rich nettle and wild mint to stimulate and revive the scalp and rosemary to refresh and invigorate. Massage it into your hair and scalp and leave it in over night or wash it out after half and hour.
Originally developed as a hair treatment for professional use only, this new-generation hydrating and restructuring serum targets the internal structure of the hair fibre. It contains a powerful combination of tiny molecular proteins, bio-lipids and natural AHAs (critical for pH balance) that really penetrate the hair to protect, soften and elastacise it.
Don't be alarmed if your Monoi Oil solidifies - it freezes in temperatures under 24C. Just stand it in some warm water and it will be back to its liquid self in no time. You can use this on your body and your hair, and it will leave a gentle scent of tropical flowers.
