Why Your Hair Needs Quinoa

We caught up with the hair experts at Rahua to find out why Quinoa is an essential ingredient in hair care.

What is Quinoa?

Quinoa (keen-wa) is an ancient gluten-free grain native to the highlands of Peru and Bolivia. It has been a staple of the Andean diet for centuries but has gained popularity outside of South America because of its many health benefits. High in dietary fibre quinoa is also known as a super-food because of its high protein, omega 3, antioxidant and healthy fat content.

What are the benefits of Quinoa?

In addition to quinoa’s many health benefits, it also offers an array of benefits when used as an ingredient in beauty products. Used in its hydrolyzed form for hair care products, quinoa has a unique combination of molecular weight amino acids that offer enhanced penetration for hair and skin nourishment. It forms a protective barrier that shields hair from environmental stresses. A key ingredient in our luxurious Color Full™ Hair Mask, quinoa helps retain moisture and provide nutrients to the cuticle. This nourishes protects and promotes hair growth. The result is smoother, silkier hair that is easier to detangle and style.

Is it worth using daily?

Used daily all over, our silky Body Lotion will reduce signs of fatigue in the skin and leave it feeling softer and looking luminous. Our Color Full ™ Conditioner relies on quinoa for its healing properties, hair is left so much healthier and cleaner feeling that you can afford to skip a day!
