Get Glossy Locks
Certified organic and 100% natural, Rahua hair products are the perfect fusion of botanical innovation and luxe indulgence. Containing the restorative oil of the Amazonian Rahua nut, the range returns life and softness to limp, stressed locks. The key to Rahua’s extraordinary performance is its molecular structure. Unlike other botanical oils that simply coat strands, the extraordinarily small Rahua oil molecule has the ability to deeply penetrate, bond and repair the hair’s cortex while simultaneously smoothing its cuticle. VIVA loves the Rahua signature shampoo and conditioner for healthy, bouncy and lustrous hair with the most addictive natural scent. An extra treat? The Omega 9 Hair Mask for powerful salon-quality hair repair at home. For more on Rahua, contact 04 374 6950
