Has the summer sun left your hair dry, dull and lifeless? As much as I love summertime, all that time spent swimming, hiking and just enjoying the sunshine can take its toll on our hair, leaving it dry and brittle.
Restore shine, health and vitality to your hair with Rahua Elixir Daily Hair Drops. I use these miracle hair drops after every hair wash, and I have never used a product that has worked so well before! It has completely restored my hair to almost a virgin state!
Rahua by Amazon Beauty Inc. Elixir Daily Hair Drops with Gardenia Enfleurage is a 100% pure and powerful daily treatment to maintain healthy, radiant hair and is handmade by the indigenous women living deep in the Amazon rainforest. Elixir Daily Hair Drops contain super-fine Omega 9 molecules that deeply penetrate hair to rebuild its core, strengthen hair follicles and help hair grow long, along with helping to push color pigmentation deep into the hair shaft. This luxurious, potent elixir fortifies weak, damaged strands, nourishes and maintains hair follicle health and provides long-lasting moisture.
Rahua® Elixir Daily Drops softens hair, smooths flyaways, provides a generous shine and keeps hair in peak health. With daily use of Elixir Daily Hair Drops, hair looks healthy and vibrant. Naturally scented sweet Gardenia soothes and enlightens the spirit while mystical Palo Santo fragrance creates an energizing calm.
Harvested in the Andes using the age-old enfleurage pure essential oil extraction process, Rahua’s Elixir Daily Hair Drops contain sweet gardenia essential oil. The pure aroma is extracted from the actual flower, treating the blossom extremely delicately, and obtaining a pure natural, chemical-free and true flower oil. Through this process, the natural properties of the flowers, including antioxidants, are preserved.
I love this liquid gold!
Gardenia Enfleurage Process: One of the oldest processes of obtaining pure essential oils, the Gardenia Enfleurage technique extracts the pure aroma of actual Gardenia flowers, treating the blossoms extremely delicately, and obtaining pure, natural, chemical-free and true flower oil. Obtained from flowers in the South American Andes in a unique microclimate that sits 1600 meters above seal level, gardenia flowers bloom all year long.
Freshly opened flowers are picked in the morning or evening and laid on trays, covered in layers of vegetable butters. The flowers stay on the butter for 24 hours and are then replaced with fresh blossoms. Once the butter absorbs the scent from the flowers, the butter, which is now called pomade, and then washed to obtain the resulting oil. This process is repeated several times, ensuring the natural properties of the flowers, including antioxidants, are preserved. Retains the flower’s purest essence and antioxidants.
I wash my hair about 3 times each week. After washing and towel drying my hair, I apply a small amount of Rahua Elixir Daily Hair Drops to the palm of my hand, and rub my hands together, and then apply the elixir throughout my hair. I then allow my hair to air dry.
Rahua Elixir Daily Hair Drops has taken my dry, damaged, color-treated hair back to a state of perfect health. I have not had my hair trimmed for about four months now, and there has been no breakage! I have zero split ends, and my hair is growing longer than it ever has without becoming brittle and breaking off. I am amazed! My hair has never looked or felt this healthy.

Rahua® (pronounced Ra-Wa) by Amazon Beauty®, Inc. announces their 10-year anniversary, a business born through the environmental work of Ecoagents Fabian Lliguin and Anna Ayers in protection of the Amazon rainforest. From the first initial product launch of Rahua Elixir, the global brand has grown to include 26 hair care, treatment, styling and body care items.
Watch this video:
In celebration of its ten-year anniversary, Rahua introduces Founder’s Blend, a Limited-Edition gift to share with Rahua partners and fans! Rahua Founder’s Blend is a hair and scalp treatment made with organic, pure plant derived ingredients to strengthen and protect hair from heat and frizz as well as nourish the scalp. Founder’s Blend can be applied to hair or scalp, wet or dry, as needed. The 22ml sized gift has an $18.00 value. Customers can receive a complimentary Founder’s Blend with a purchase at www.rahua.com while supplies last.
Lliguin and Ayers’ approach to founding their company was to establish a business model with philanthropy built into the DNA and company function with reverence to Mother Nature. Prior to creating the company, they were brought together through environmental passion and preservation establishing the non-profit organization, Ecoagents, with a mission to create awareness about the Amazon Rainforest and the importance of protecting it, the people that live there, and their wisdom. While on this mission Rahua became that channel to do the work. By producing ingredients through revived traditional methods, the tribal communities have established economies and take great pride in their culture and land. The couple’s philanthropic approach is to empower the indigenous people to create and sustain an economy based on preserving their traditions, in doing this – simultaneously they remain strong as the forest’s guardians and protectors living in balance and nurturing its abundance for generations.
While on an environmental mission, Lliguin, a New Yorker of Quechua-Inca descent, was introduced to Amazon women and was amazed by their extraordinary long, strong, healthy hair. The women shared their use of a natural oil, called Rahua, derived from the ungurahua nut. This rare oil is made through a highly sustainable and regenerative process using ancient wisdom andceremonial practices. A hairdresser by trade, Lliguin brought the Rahua oil back to his New York salon and when he started using it his clients was amazed at its potency and what it did to replenish and restore the hair. The introduction of the Rahua oil served as the method to help the Amazon tribes sustain their environment and create their local economies. Research followed to develop a hair and beauty line to honor the rituals and a business was born.
I love Rahua products. I was introduced to Rahua about six months ago, when I was given the opportunity to review several of their products here, on Beautiful Mommies. I received their amazing hair-perfecting shampoo, conditioner and body wash. You can read my review of those products here.
And just in time for summer, I was given the opportunity to review one of my favorite products ever, Rahua Enchanted Island™ Salt Spray
Inspired by the Galapagos Islands, Rahua's Enchanted Island™ Salt Spray offers sexy, tousled, wavy beach hair. Crafted with natural pink sea salt for texture and volume, this spray offers light, brushable hold and the lush, tropical fragrance combination of guayaba, hibiscus, and passion fruit. It creates beautiful beachy waves in my hair! I love it!
Anyone who purchases Rahua products can feel good about helping preserve the Amazon Rainforest. Happy Anniversary, Rahua!

Rahua Classic Shampoo~ This luxurious shampoo leaves locks luminous and soft by imparting omega-9 packed rahua oil and other all-natural, plant-derived nutrients.

NEW LINE FROM THE GRANDPA SOAP COMPANY PROMISES UNIQUELY NATURAL HAIRCARE
Originators of Pine Tar soaps start a new haircare tradition, with cruelty-free, naturally-formulated shampoos and conditioners
I am always on the lookout for natural hair care products, and so I was happy to get the chance to review The Grandpa Soap Company products. (I honestly thought that the products might geared more toward men or perhaps the elderly because of the name, but boy, was I wrong!)
The Grandpa Soap Company, one of the oldest continuously operating soap-makers in America, is introducing a new line of naturally-made hair care products. Formulated from proven, functional ingredients, Grandpa’s shampoos and conditioners round out a product line that is able to solve any skin and hair problem, the natural way.
The new haircare collection includes Pine Tar scalp-therapy shampoo and conditioner, which teams pine tar with the natural properties of tea tree oil to combat dry, itchy scalp.
Three additional shampoo and conditioner duos are being introduced to provide specific benefits: smoothing and nourishing Buttermilk for dry and damaged color-treated hair, purifying and rejuvenating Rosemary and Rose Clay to restore healthy hair shine, and clarifying and calming organic Witch Hazel to remove environmental build-up and oil residue.
All of The Grandpa Soap Company’s products are free of the harsh chemicals commonly found in bath products, including sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, petroleum, and artificial fragrances and colors. They are gentle enough for daily use and safe for color-treated hair.
The company’s commitments to cruelty-free and environmentally sustainable practices are backed by third-party certifications, including Leaping Bunny and the National Celiac Association, for certified Gluten-Free. The packaging for Grandpa’s haircare products, including the 8-ounce tube and cap, are fully-recyclable and all components are made in the same facility, to reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
“As a mom, I understand how difficult it can be to keep a home free of unnecessarily toxic cleansers.” says Katherine Jarnigo, co-CEO of The Grandpa Soap Company. “We are excited to reveal our new line of shampoos and conditioners to families who are seeking responsibly-made and naturally-formulated personal care products.”
My thoughts: I was sent a generous assortment of samples from The Grandpa's Soap Company. I received several smaller sizes and several full-sized products. I am in Grandpa Soap Company heaven!
I have been using and loving all of the products in the month since I received them, but my very favorite hair care shampoo and conditioner is as follows:
Buttermilk Shampoo and Conditioner
My hair is highlighted and tends to be extremely dry. It takes a special nourishing and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep my parched hair hydrated. The first thing I noticed when I used the Buttermilk shampoo, was that it smelled so amazing! And then the lather is so luxuriously rich. It felt exhilarating to wash my hair. As I was rinsing, I could actually hear my hair 'squeaking' which to me means that this shampoo was doing its job in cleansing my hair. It was leaving zero residue behind!
After rinsing out the shampoo, I actually lightly towel dried my hair before I applied the Buttermilk conditioner so that it would have a better chance of penetrating my damaged hair shaft. The first thing I noticed about this conditioner (besides the delicious fragrance) was how thick, rich and creamy it is. I worked it throughout my hair, and placed a shower cap on my head to keep on while I shaved my legs. This process allows the conditioner time to get the chance to repair the damage in my hair and to fully hydrate it. After rinsing it, and allowing my hair to air dry, I just cannot stop running my fingers through my hair because it is truly soft as silk.
Witch Hazel Shampoo and Conditioner
A calming and clarifying blend of Witch Hazel, Lavender Flower & Coconut Oil gently removes environmental buildup and oil residue from scalp to leave hair shiny and smooth.
I use a lot of different products in my hair, which causes a layer of build-up over time. It is very important to remove that build-up every other shampoo with a clarifying shampoo like Grandpa's Soap Company's Witch Hazel formula. I use this shampoo and conditioner duo every other time I wash my hair. It gently breaks down all of the dulling layers of old product from each strand of my hair, deeply cleaning it without disturbing my hair's natural oils. I feel such an incredible difference after using these products.
The lather is luxuriously foamy, and the conditioner leaves my hair so soft. The Witch Hazel shampoo and conditioner are two of my very favorite beauty essentials.
When my hair looks healthy, I feel great!
Grandpa’s haircare products have suggested retail prices between $8.49 and $9.99, and are available nationally in supermarkets and independent, natural grocery chains.
Take Control of Your Beauty Products in 2018 – Top Beauty Products You Can Make at Home
Have you ever stopped and thought about what ingredients are in your beauty products? Are you spending a small fortune on the items but seeing little to no results? If so, then why not let 2018 be the year you take control of your beauty products and start to make some at home. By making your beauty products at home, you’ll be in control of the ingredients, you can customize the product, and you’ll be spending much less money.
Here’s a look at some of the top beauty products you can make at home:
Indulge Your Skin with Homemade Face Masks
Perhaps one of the most popular products to make at home is face masks. There are so many different variations out there meant to address a variety of skincare issues. For example, a honey lemon facial mask, as found on the diyformula.com website, contains natural antibacterial agents ideal for treating acne. There is also the avocado and honey mask, which is perfect for those who need some extra moisture and care.
DIY masks tend to use normal household ingredients that you probably already have on hand. They are quick and easy to throw together, which means you are more likely to use them on a regular basis. You can always mix and match ingredients from various masks to create your own personalized formula.
Give Your Hair a Good Cleaning with Natural Shampoo
Shampoo is another beauty product that people tend to spend a lot of money on throughout the year. Why not make your own natural shampoo that won't be harmful to your hair or scalp and uses all natural ingredients? A great recipe features coconut milk, castile liquid soap, vitamin E oil, fenugreek powder, lavender essential oil, rosemary essential oil, and a bottle to store it in. This recipe is so gentle and effective that it can be used on everyone in the family.
If you find that you need a shampoo that offers more of a deep clean, add tea tree oil to the mixture. Tea tree oil does an excellent job fighting itchy scalp and dandruff, helps to thicken hair and encourage it to grow, and provides deep cleaning of the scalp. You can easily find these and other shampoo recipes online.
Gentle and Effective Makeup Remover
Removing your makeup at the end of the day can be quite the task without the proper product. Did you know you can make your very own makeup remover that is safe, gentle, and effective? All you need is extra virgin olive oil, aloe vera water, and a resealable bottle. Simply pour 1/2 cup of the aloe vera water and the same amount of olive oil in the bottle, put the cap on nice and tight, and then give it a shake. You can then use cotton pads to remove your makeup.
Get On-Board with Homemade Beauty Products
So, why not take control of your beauty products and your wallet and start making your own homemade beauty products? You won’t regret it!

I love discovering new skin care companies! I just got the chance to review some of the best bath and body products ever from Treets Traditions.
With a focus on the knowledge our ancestors used to heal themselves with what they found in nature, Treets Traditions uses a blend of unique herbs to create products that are healing and nourishing for your skin.
I received samples of the following products to review:

Nourish skin with this decadent gel to foam formula that supports skin health with regional ingredients. Available in Nourishing Spirits, Relaxing Chakra’s, Healing In Harmony, Revitalising Ceremonies, and Energising Secrets, these luxurious foams transform your shower and leave behind delicious scents.
I was sent energising secrets and healing in harmony fragrances. This foaming shower gel is beyond luxurious and fun to use in the shower. Both fragrances are amazing and completely uplifting. All you do is squirt a small amount into your hand, and it foams up instantly into a thick, rich lather that is perfect for shaving your legs. I absolutely love it!
2 in 1 Hair & Body Wash
Soap-free hair and body wash for daily mild cleansing. Traditional Eucalyptus oil has a calming effect and Nordic Cranberry oil, known to contain Vitamin C and antioxidants, helps to protect the skin.
I am loving using this product as a gentle shampoo. It smells so wonderful, and it makes my hair feel very clean and healthy.
I received two of these delightful body scrubs in relaxing chakra, and energising secrets.

Both of these scrubs make my skin glow, and feel smooth and silky. These formulas are perfect for getting your skin ready for a bit of sunless tanning products to help boost your skin's glow. And did I mention that they smell amazing?
I received relaxing chakra's and nourishing spirits body oils.
Relaxing Chakra's~ Super caring body oil. For a soft and smooth skin all day long. Absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft but not greasy. Contains vitamin E.

Each one of these formulas are the best! I always bring them into the shower with me, and I apply the oil all over my skin while it is still damp. This seals in the moisture to keep my skin supple, silky and glowing. Plus, my skin smells delicious!
This moisturising body lotion applies easily and absorbs quickly. A combination of traditional Nordic Wild Thyme and Cranberry with extra Vitamin C and antioxidants help to protect the skin. For all skin types.
There's nothing quite like this amazing body lotion. It leaves my skin completely soft and smooth. I apply it after showers and also after shaving my legs before I put on a skirt or shorts. My skin if perfectly hydrated and smells exhilerating.
These bath fizzers are based on the tradition of cleaning and purifying with soda. Treets has added the traditional African Kalahari melon oil and Baobab oil to help moisturise, protect and nourish dry skin.
There's nothing quite like a relaxing hot bath to wind down after a long, stressful day of parenting! I love to add one of these heavenly bath fizzers to my tub and watch it dissolve. That in itself is relaxing and quite satisfying. When the fragrance envelopes my senses and the skin softeners starts to caress my skin with their luxurious ingredients, I just melt. Ahhhh!
As with all Treets products~ "We respect mother nature. Free of: SLS, SLES, parabens, silicones, colourants and mineral oils."
