Rahua shampoo and conditioner review

According to Rahua's website "100% natural, organic shampoo cleanses to create healthy, lustrous, bouncy hair and is ideal for color-treated hair. Rahua oil fortifies weak, damaged strands while nourishing and regenerating the scalp and hair follicles." and "100% natural, organic conditioner protects to create manageable, soft hair without any build-up — and is ideal for color-treated hair. Rahua oil fortifies and nourishes weak, damaged strands."  So do they really do what they say?

At first, I really wasn't too keen on the smell of either the shampoo or conditioner.  It smells kind of old and musty - not the most attractive smell for a beauty product.  Thankfully, the smell doesn't linger on the hair - once dry, you can't smell it at all.  The shampoo takes a bit of effort to lather up but the conditioner glides on really easily.  A little goes a long way with both products, especially the conditioner.

At £26 for 275ml shampoo and £27.50 for 275ml conditioner, this is definitely a rather pricey product.  As I mentioned above though, a little goes a long way so you needn't worry that you'd get through a whole bottle in a week.  That said, is £26 a little too expensive for a bottle of shampoo?

After using both the shampoo and conditioner, my hair instantly felt much softer and smoother.  The products really do hydrate your hair and this is evidenced from the first use, making it much easier to style.

Would I buy them at full price?
Since I regularly have highlights put through my hair, my hair tends to be quite dry and I'd definitely buy these products to remedy the dryness.  At this price though, I'd make sure that I only used them as a treat for my hair, rather than for everyday use, especially since even one use has such an effect.

I received a free sample of both the Rahua shampoo and conditioner in my September GlossyBox but the views here are entirely honest and I have not been paid to write this review.
