My hair dryer is broken. It served me so well for nearly a decade. Can you imagine? I was getting ready to go to Robbie’s college reunion, which we drove all the way to upstate New York with three kids to attend, and I was halfway through drying my hair when little sparks started coming out of the back of the dryer. So I put my slightly damp hair into an up-do and ordered a new hairdryer.
The thing about getting a new hairdryer is that you get to appreciate all the tricks you and your old hairdryer used to get up to in the name of good hair. My new hairdryer is still in training, and I had to read a manual to figure it out.
On the upside, I learned that I’ve been over blow-drying my hair. I used to blow-dry it way past the point of it being dry. That was how I would make it smooth. Apparently you don’t do that. You use products to do that. (Oh.)
So let’s start with the basics. Follain has curated a gorgeous range of shampoos and conditioners that work as well, if not better than the leading mainstream products, without the harsh chemicals.
Hair stylist Fabian Lliguin and his wife Anna Ayers got the name Rahua from the powerful, restorative oil used by Amazonian tribes. They source the oil sustainably to create their ethical, all-natural hair care products. The small molecular structure of the oil penetrates hair to heal and beautify from the inside out.
