Hair Facts and Fundamentals


From porosity to growth cycles, there's more to your hair than meets the eye. We'll explore these key factors to provide you with insights into effective hair care practices and products that can help you achieve your hair goals.
  1. Hair porosity refers to how well your hair can absorb and retain moisture. Rahua ultra sustainable products, such as their Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, are designed to cater to various hair types and porosities, helping to keep hair adequately moisturized.
  2. Hair goes through a growth cycle consisting of three phases: anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). Rahua Elixir and other products can support hair during all these phases, promoting overall hair health.
  3. It's normal to shed 50-100 strands per day. Rahua products, like our Omega 9 Hair Mask and Leave-In Treatment, can help reduce breakage and minimize hair shedding.
  4. The number of hair strands on a person's head varies widely. Typically, people have between 100,000 and 150,000 hair follicles. Rahua Enchanted Island™ Essential Hair Care set features plant based Biotin, Vitamins B6, A, C, and E to promote healthy hair and strengthen hair follicles – helping prevent premature hair loss.
  5. There are over 100 different hair colors in the world, ranging from shades of black to various hues of blonde and red. Rahua Color Full™ Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated to preserve and enhance hair color vibrancy.
  6. Hair is primarily composed of a protein called keratin. Rahua products are known for their natural ingredients, such as Rahua oil, which contains omega-9 fatty acids that help nourish and strengthen hair.
  7. Typically, hair grows at a rate of approximately half an inch (1.25 cm) each month. Rahua hair care collection features items such as their Scalp Exfoliating Shampoo, known for its ability to enhance hair growth by boosting scalp blood circulation, while simultaneously nourishing hair health with the goodness of Symbiotic® Rahua, Sacha Inchi, and Morete oils.
  8. The thickness of an individual strand of hair varies from person to person. Rahua Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to add body and thickness to fine or limp hair.
  9. Hair can be affected by climate conditions. Rahua Hydration Detangler + UV Barrier can be particularly useful in protecting hair from the damaging effects of UV rays, especially in sunny climates.
