  • must buy!

    Gina December 10, 2020

    To Preface: I do not use additional products on my hair. I have wavy textured hair. Medium, semi-thick. Dark brown. Struggle with dry, flaky scalp.
    First off I LOVE the smell of this shampoo. To me I think it has a bit of a minty vanilla smell. Second it has worked amazing already for my hair and I’ve only been using it for a week! I already notice the flaking of my scalp has gone down (not to be confused with having seborrhoeic dermatitis which I do not have). and I love that the smell lingers. I may eventually buy the conditioner too but am currently using a detangler instead. 10/10 would recommend this product and others by this brand!

  • My favortite shampoo

    Nathalia October 08, 2020

    I have been on a search for the right shampoo for as long as I can remember. Most shampoos either leave residue or dries out my hair. This shampoo is just wonderful. Cleans my hair without drying it out. The shampoo itself is 5 stars. The reason I am giving it 4 starts is the smell which doesn’t appeal to me. It is not terrbile, just doesn’t smell nice and fresh. Luckily it washes out for the most part and doesn’t follow me around.

  • Only shampoo that's soothed my dry scalp

    Brynne July 26, 2020

    I’ve had sebboraic dermititis my whole life and particularly my scalp has itched for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried literally everything and while things like aloe and ACV have soothed it temporarily, nothing had a lasting effect until I tried this shampoo. I’ve been using natural shampoos (bar soaps, baby shampoos…whatever had the fewest chemicals since my skin is so sensitsive) for two years and this shampoo lathers better than anything I’ve been using–non-toxic shampoos won’t contain the toxic lathering agent SLES so we should get used to soaps lathering less anyways! If you have suffered from dandruff or dry/itchy scalp, I highly recommend trying this!

  • Finally!

    Meghan April 03, 2020

    I have wildly thick, long, wavy hair and it is *always* a challenge to find a shampoo that will get down to the roots and lift any build up – but this does it. I will admit that I had to use quite a bit to work it in the first couple of weeks, until my hair got used to the change of ingredients, but just remember that natural shampoos won’t lather as much as your regular shampoo – but it doesn’t mean it isn’t working! But now my hair is used to it and I can cut back to washing my hair every three days or so (and ony having to use a dry shampoo occasionally). This stuff is great!

  • Subtle smell

    Meredith March 18, 2020

    I already knew I liked this as a clean shampoo because I had tried it in the pink scent. I will say the smell of this one is pretty subtle and not at all flowery like I usually like. But great as a unisex scent.

  • Stick it out!

    Kendall February 11, 2020

    This was my first natural shampoo and I did notice, like some reviews stated, that my hair was more oily than usual, but this can be a normal process of your body over-producing oil because it’s used to your previous shampoo stripping your natural oils! I stuck it out for 3 weeks using it consistently and I am so happy I did! Now my hair is back to normal and I love this shampoo!

  • Simply beautiful hair!

    Mirla January 29, 2020

    This is gold in a shampoo! All I get are compliments about how beautiful, shiny and healthy my hair is… I know! I used to have to blow dry my hair, fully, which would take about 35-45mnts, since I have long hair, in order to kind of obtain a nice look… Since Rahua, I only blowdry my hair for about 15mnts, put it on a bun, and that’s it… I let my hair loose and the locks are incredibly bouncy, my hair shiny and simply gorgeous! So happy I found Rahua!

  • Not a fan

    Stephanie January 19, 2020

    This made my already oily and super fine hair feel extra oily! It felt like it didn’t really do the job, even when I washed twice or used more or less of the product. Upsetting b/c it’s such a large bottle! Going to use until it’s gone, but not a huge fan of it and wouldn’t repurchase.

  • perfectly clean with just the right amount of moisture!

    Melaine January 13, 2020

    my hair is fine and thin. this product left my hair clean with body and also moisture but not too much moisture to weigh it down. I am very pleased!

  • Wonderful!

    Perri December 28, 2019

    My hair is sensitive to anything described as “moisturizing”, and leads to breakouts on my scalp! Rahua is perfectly balanced for my scalp. Bonus: the palo santo leaves my hair smelling so pretty!

  • Wonderful

    Ann December 05, 2019

    Most of the “clean” shampoos I’ve tried barely lather and leave my hair feeling sort of heavy and blah. This stuff is fantastic. Makes a big gorgeous lather and gives you clean and shiny hair. I have very long hair and I don’t need to use all that much product to get a good lather going, so while it is pricey, the bottle does last a bit longer that lesser products. Their classic conditioner is great, as well.

  • Good, not great

    Celeste C. November 25, 2019

    I had to use a ton of product to get a good enough lather to distribute the shampoo through my hair. My hair was noticeably soft but I want something that helps my hair have a little more body / volume than this.

  • Still undecided

    Emmie P. November 08, 2019

    I’ve been using this for a couple weeks now, and I still can’t decide if I’m sold. As a hairstylist, the salon I work in has a lot of shampoos full of chemicals, and I wash people’s hair all day so I’m used to that ‘sudsy’ feeling. This shampoo doesn’t have all the crap in it, so it doesn’t get sudsy, and I’ve found that I have to wash twice before my hair really feels clean. I do love the smell and the way my hair feels after, I guess I just wasn’t expecting to have to use SO much product, especially when it’s so expensive.

  • Smells good

    Sarabeth M. September 19, 2019

  • Golden jackpot shampoo!!!

    Christina B. July 22, 2019

    Wow!!!!!!! I’ve been on the hunt for a clean ingredient shampoo that actually works well for years …. one that worked for more than 2-3 uses.. I recently learned about Rahua shampoo /conditioner and it sounded great so I purchased the full size . I have psoriasis on my scalp and have to stay away from many hair products due to fragrance and chemicals that make the sore patches extremely painful . Even some that are labeled “clean beauty “ at Sephora , they have some tricky ingredients to look for , caused me problems . This shampoo has a nice natural scent , lathers well for a sulfate free shampoo, makes my hair super soft and shiny, and doesn’t agitate my scalp at all. Best shampoo I’ve come across yet!!!!!

  • Seems to work!

    Rosemary P. July 08, 2019

    I have only used this a few times so far, as I purchased it in the small size (nice to have this as an option before committing to the large size), but it’s made my hair nice and bouncy and feels very clean. I will say, you have to be aware that it doesn’t lather much due to the lack of SLS ingredient, but that’s a good thing!

  • Perfect Shampoo

    Phoebe B. June 06, 2019

    I love this shampoo and the travel size version is perfect. It lathers nicely and you don’t need too much.

  • Luxurious lather

    D. May 12, 2019

    Lovely subtle scent of coconuts with a nice lather that cleans and rinses well without drying my fine hair. This is my new favorite.

  • Black Licorice

    Xochitl C. December 13, 2018

    To me it smells like black licorice which after a few uses I can’t really tell anymore. It is however a great product my hair is looking healthier, feels great and more manageable.

  • Pleasantly surprised!

    Autumn K. December 13, 2018

    After reading the reviews, I was a little weary how this would turn out but I love it! It lathers great and the hint of eucalyptus gives it a very fresh, but not overwhelming, scent.

  • Shampoo

    Stephanie S. December 09, 2018

    Not my favorite shampoo/conditioner combo- left my hair greasy. Don’t think I will reorder.

  • Great shampoo, but very poor packing

    Carolee K. December 06, 2018

    I love the shampoo. Gives my hair a lot of body and is not drying. Unfortunately, the bottle was not sealed well because 1/3 of the shampoo had leaked all over the packing materials. This is a very costly shampoo and I do not appreciate getting less than I had paid for. I would rate this as 5 star, but cannot do so because of this problem.

  • Great shampoo, love the smell

    Molly M. November 15, 2018

    This stuff really cleans hair well. I was a little nervous it would not work so well because it’s all natural but it’s one of the best shampoos I’ve ever used. Lathers up so well, leaves hair squeaky clean and smells really good. This one is my new fave!

  • My favorite shampoo

    Caroline F. November 14, 2018

    This is a little pricey and I used to alternate it but it’s so good I keep coming back to it. I love the herby smell and often get compliments on how good my hair smells! It’s hydrating and keeps my hair smooth.

  • Great product, little pricey

    Tara P. November 11, 2018

    Love the way this makes my hair feel, could be a little more affordable though

  • great shampoo

    Claire E. October 29, 2018

    Soft. great feeling. smells good. expensive!

  • Smells amazing!

    Carly E. October 29, 2018

    If you love Palo Santo…buy this! The smell is the most relaxing thing ever! I definitely want to try other Rahua products after using this one. The travel sizes are perfect not only for travel but so you can try all the different smells. Love a variety.

  • Never Going Back

    Janelle H. September 24, 2018

    I finally found a shampoo that actually gives life to my hair! I have fine, straight hair and I’ve been searching for a shampoo that doesn’t weigh down my hair or leave it feeling too dry. I couldn’t be happier with this shampoo and even converted my husband.

  • Great product

    Marric B. September 23, 2018

    My hair looks better and healthier than it ever has and this product smells great.

  • Shiny, touchable hair

    Akl September 22, 2018

    This shampoo gives me shiny, touchable hair. It smells nice and does lather, but not as much as drugstore bands because it doesn’t have SLS, which is the point of a non-toxic product anyway. It leave my scalp feeling clean, but not dry.

  • Lovely smell and a good clean

    Tiffany B. August 28, 2018

    Rahua was the first clean shampoo I used and I immediately loved it. It has a nice lather and leaves your hair clean without feeling stripped. Plus, it looks beautiful in your shower.

  • Smells amazing and is so moisturizing

    Meredith M. August 24, 2018

    My hair is really dry and this shampoo left it feeling clean but not stripped. It lathers well for a clean brand and rinsed out well. The smell also can’t be beat – earthy and warm, almost an amber or slight coconut scent.

  • My new favorite!

    Megan L. August 08, 2018

    I’ve tried a lot of clean shampoo/conditioner brands and Rahua is my new favorite! The shampoo has a little foaming action and leaves my hair feeling very sleek and clean. I also feel like it leaves my hair feeling less dangled. The conditioner is also very nice – a little goes a long way, even for thick hair! I highly recommend both products.

  • Great shampoo/conditioner

    Faith W. July 20, 2018

    Bought a travel size to try these… will definitely go with the regular size. My hair feels silky and manageable. It is very long and tends to dryness because I live in the high desert. Pleasant scent (not too strong). Great products!!!

  • like but don't love

    Virginia S. July 07, 2018

    This shampoo smells great, but I find I have to use a large amount of it (maybe two to three times as much as a standard shampoo) or my hair will get instantly tangled up right there in the shower. To be fair, I have long blonde hair that’s been highlighted for years.

  • Like it!

    Laura M. July 02, 2018

    Great shampoo! Doesn’t make my hair feel heavy or greasy. The sent is very light and earthy.

  • not pleasant

    Connie S. April 23, 2018

    The smell of this product was not pleasant. I received a sample and didn’t smell good. After I washed my hair, it didn’t hold the style.

    • From Follain:

      Hi Connie, so sorry to hear the scent wasn’t for you! Please email us at help@follain.com and we can help you return for another item.

  • Smells AMAZING

    Claire P. April 19, 2018

    This shampoo is the best. My hair feels so clean and soft! I bought it for my trip to Italy (because of the size), but I will definitely be buying more!

  • Best Shampoo

    Melissa G. April 18, 2018

    This shampoo makes my hair so shiny and healthy looking! It lathers up nicely even without foaming agents, and makes your hair feel really clean. I’m hooked!

  • Excellent for Oily Hair and Scalp

    Christy O. April 03, 2018

    Using this Rahua Classic Shampoo and Conditioner has been revolutionary! I am a yoga instructor and usually need to wash my oily hair every day. This formula allows me to wash my hair every 3-4 days without getting greasy or taking on a sweaty smell. I don’t know how they do it!

  • the perfect shampoo

    Jacqueline A. October 01, 2017

    it has a slight lather so your hair feels clean, the smell is phenomenal. and it leaves my hair really shiny and soft. if my hair weren’t a thick jungle of tangles i could imagine only needing a very little bit of conditioner after this. it’s the only shampoo i will use.

  • Nice texture and results but don't love the smell

    Faye S. September 06, 2017

    So I’m going to preface saying my hair is VERY manageable- it’s very straight and I rarely notice a difference in my hair texture after different shampoos. I used this because I got a sample from Follain and it made my hair feel smooth and nice and clean. However, I couldn’t get over the smell, which was a bit odd.

  • The best nontoxic shampoo!

    Nia July 29, 2017

    I first tried the travel sizes of the shampoo and conditioner to see how I would like it, but after one use, I knew I wanted to purchase the full sizes. The more I use this, the healthier my hair feels. There was a slight adjustment to get used to the lack of foam, but my hair felt so clean and so soft, I quickly got over it. I feel like it is gentle enough to use everyday, yet effective enough to deep clean if I go a day or two without washing.

  • Can't wait to wash my hair!

    Trish Z. December 25, 2016

    Just purchased this shampoo at the suggestion of the Beacon Hill ladies, and I am not disappointed! Was using a shampoo purchased at my salon and it was too heavy, but this product is light-my hair has never felt so soft after just one use of the Rahua. I have fine color treated hair that loved this product. Recommended to my sister and mom!

  • My favorite shampoo

    Sasha June 24, 2016

    I love this shampoo. The smell is amazing, and it makes my hair feel incredibly soft and hydrated but not weighed down–a difficult combination to achieve in a hair product! I highly recommend this. I always have this in my shower.

  • Brilliant shampoo!

    Jennifer L. June 01, 2016

    This shampoo smooths and softens my hair in a really nice way. My hair is normally greasy and a little bit rough. This shampoo made my hair so soft and did not make it greasy at all! It works great with the Rahua conditioner.

  • Amazing natural shampoo

    Am February 20, 2016

    My hair is dry and wavy and just loves this shampoo. The shampoo has a very light yet incredibly delicious scent and left my hair feeling clean and glossy. No suds (this is a good thing) but really lovely feeling after you rinse.

  • AMAZING!!!

    Carolyn K. January 21, 2016

    I am a convert. This stuff paired with the conditioner are FABULOUS. Never had shinier, bouncier hair. WOOT and good bye to the chemicals…

  • Greasy

    Beth July 08, 2015

    I have completely regular hair, a bit of body, can get weighed down by heavy products or dried out from harsh things. My hair very long with a few layers, uncoloured, no styling products, is healthy and dries to amazing bounciness on it’s own. I wash it 2 times a week. If something goes awry with my hair, it clearly is the shampoo. This Rahua is heavy, my hair feels 3 feet thick after using it but has a grungy feeling. The next day, my hair is limp and greasy, necessitating it be washed. I tried this shampoo a few times and in two different periods 5-6 months apart. I rinsed for 2 minutes once to be sure it was completely rinsed out but that was not the problem. It is too much for healthy, normal hair. If I had dry, or perhaps damaged hair from long term colour treating or heat styling, this shampoo might do the trick.

  • Didn't work well for me

    Greta March 04, 2015

    I have tried the Rahua classic shampoo and conditioner combo on two separate occasions over the years. While my scalp feels clean and healthy with extended use, my thick shoulder-length hair becomes dry and lifeless. I really wish that these products worked as well for me as they do for others.

  • Love this Shampoo!

    Deborah F. March 01, 2015

    I have baby fine hair and work out everyday, so I need a shampoo that won’t dry my hair out. This is gentle and my hair has volume but is not flyaway….I also love that it doesn’t have toxic who-knows-what in it!

  • terrific stuff

    John February 22, 2015

    The kind ladies of Follain suggested this shampoo for me…I’m so glad I asked for help. I love this stuff. A lot of healthy shampoos on the market talk a big game, but very few work this well, while maintaining upmost integrity of ingredients. Thanks to Follain for getting me hooked.

  • Best shampoo ever

    Charlotte February 20, 2015

    I am completely switched over to Rahua for my shampoo and conditioner since I first used the product. It completely cleansed and lightened the weight of my hair. After using I found my hair was shinier, bouncier and just so much healthier. It’s a holy grail shampoo product!
