Rahua – Our Story
Rahua originated centuries ago in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. The Quechua-Shuar, Achur, and other neighboring tribes discovered rahua oil and relied on this formula for healthy hair and skin. After discovering this oil on an excursion to the Amazon forest, the creators of Rahua beauty products wanted to partner up with these tribes to use this sacred oil.
All beauty products are designed to actively help people’s hair become rejuvenated and healthy. This brand is proud of the history and love poured into each and every bottle.
Respecting the traditional process for producing this oil is important to everyone involved. The brand strongly rests on the wisdom of the tribal people, creating a harmonic structure between the creators and indigeous people.
Rahua - Our Founder
Fabian Lliguin, a renowned hair stylist and colorist from New York city, was visiting the Amazon rainforest to help educate indigenous people about their land rights and human rights. Little did he know that his successful product line would have been inspired by the women in a native tribe. Their hair was lush, long and cascaded beautifully down their waists.
Intrigued, Fabian learned that for centuries these women were utilizing Rahua oil to nourish their hair and skin. They graciously offered him one bottle of this special oil, trusting him with their secret. It did not take long for Fabian to discover how special this oil was, soon creating Rahua Rainforest Grown Beauty.
Respecting the traditional makings of this tribal oil, both Fabian and his wife, Anna Ayers, work with these tribes to create Rahua products with their customers.

Color Full Shampoo
Caroline L. - "I have fine, flyaway hair and i’m always looking for the right products. i think i’ve found it with Rahua. the scent is intoxicating and my hair looks great. i’ve also been able to skip a day of wash which has never happened with other cleansers. thank you Rahua!"
Megan H. - "I've used this Rahua product 2x per week for two weeks now and I've noticed the biggest difference. Not only have I noticed, but two of my best friends thought that I had gotten my hair highlighted (they see me several times a week!). It works sooooo well with my hair that is exposed to hard water every day! It's brightened it up so much and gotten rid of the brassy look! BUY THIS!"
Meg - "I have looked for so many different shampoos that are cleaner options for colored hair, but none have come close to this shampoo. I have gone over 3 months now without needing toner for a refresh. Plus, Rahua makes my hair feels clean without the waxy, dirty feeling that so many of the cleaner brand shampoos leave my hair."
Founders Blend Scalp & Hair Treatment
Alanah M. - "I received a sample of this with my last Safe & Chic order and I loved it! I used this Rahua product all over my scalp (not really my ends) and it had a nice cooling effect that helped with my scalp itchiness. It washed out, left no residue, and my scalp felt clear, hydrated, and not itchy for the next three days! Thanks Safe & Chic and Rahua Beauty!"
Rachelle R. - "LOVE LOVE LOVE. I live in the desert and have very long hair that gets dry and tangled - and this Rahua treatment is glorious! I generally wash my hair and then put this in and leave it for 3-4 hours and then wash out and let air dry. The next day it is vibrant, has some bounce and feels great. Only downside is that I may get four treatments MAX out of this Rahua bottle since my hair is so thick and long - so I save it for a treat."
Samantha - "This leave in Rahua treatment smells wonderful and feels slightly tingly on the scalp, I like it very much....what I liked even more was how my hair looked, felt and smelled afterwards! So much body and shine! I left it in overnight as I tend to do with hair treatments as I live in a harsh climate."
Leave in Treatment
Beth G. - "Divine! Just what I was hoping for. I am super picky/sensitive to synthetic smells and ingredients. This scent is light, natural, just like cocoa butter or shea with a touch of mint. I have coarse greying 50 year old hair, this Rahua product gives me waves with no frizz. Expensive, but a quarter size amount works in my thick, clavicle length hair. Highly recommend!"
Susan K. - "I like the shine and moisture this Rahua treatment seems to add to my hair and will certainly buy it again. It's expensive but you use very little each time so it should last a good while. I trust all Safe & Chic products."
Lynne B. - "I LOVE this Rahua product! All natural ingredients, and it doesn't leave my hair sticky, oily feeling or looking, nor stiff."
Marty - "Love! This is magic! I have very fine hair with using this Rahua product, my hair has volume all day. Don’t stop making this item. I will keep buying."
Natasha G. - "I absolutely love love love this Rahua product! Holds hair together without being too strong. It's lightweight, smells great and easy to apply."
Moira C. - "I absolutely love this Rahua product! When it first comes out it feels pretty waxy, but my hair just soaks it up. It doesn't look greasy at all and creates volume and texture. I have very fine hair and this does not weigh it down. So happy I discovered Rahua!"
Smoothing Hair Balm
Em - "It's a good Rahua product to add shine, and it does tame flyaways. I think I'll just use this more on my ends as a heat protectant and to add shine. Smell is a nice floral scent, must be the gardenia, and not too overpowering."
AJ - "Great styling power and shine. Rahua is a great brand and I will be repurchasing again soon!"
Alanah M. - "I was recently on thyroid medication that resulted in some undesirable side effects, one of which being hair shedding. Now being off that medication, I am starting to have new hair growth (YAY) resulting of many baby hairs sticking up straight off my scalp. I ordered this Rahua product on a whim, hoping it would help smooth my hair, and I am happy to report it worked! It also provided a decent amount of shine but not too much that it made me look greasy. I love that it is a solid balm as well making it good for travel. Overall very happy with this purchase."
