With a brand as famous as Rahua, it’s easy to assume that everyone knows their products and what they do.
Every brand however has one or two products which are in the shadow of the brand’s stars and don’t get as much credit as they deserve. In the case of Rahua, this is the Rahua Voluminous Spray.
So here we go. Everything you need to know about Rahua Voluminous Spray – what to expect from it, a few tips and whether it’s a product for you anyway.
(Feel free to watch this video instead, if you don't feel like reading)
Often confused for a hair spray in the traditional sense of the word, Rahua Voluminous Spray can be called a hair spray only because you spray it on your hair (this is not an aerosol). But if you’re looking for something to offer strong hold, you need a different product.
I’m starting with this because I often hear people being disappointed with the Rahua Voluminous Spray as it doesn’t work like a hair mousse or traditional hair spray and I feel we need to clear the air on this subject.
Rahua Voluminous Spray offers soft hold, it will add volume and texture, but it will not hold any updos.
It’s tempting to say that a product would work for everyone, especially if you’ve been struggling to find something for your hair but the Rahua Voluminous Spray isn’t for every hair type/texture, but the truth is that there are very few products out there which work for all hair types.
Even as I’m writing these words I’m wondering whether I know one.
Fine hair tends to fall flat and Rahua Voluminous Spray will do wonders for it without weighing it down, making it look greasy or like straw. Just spritz a few pumps on towel dry hair, turn your head upside down and blow dry your hair starting at the roots.
You will get noticeable lift in the roots but don’t expect hair like Princess Poppy from the Trolls. (for the ones without children – this means you shouldn’t expect your hair to be “standing” direction sky)
If your hair has the tendency to get wavy that is. Let me explain what that means.
I have fine, straight hair. It’s straight not as “flat-iron straight” but more like “I have my own, very strong opinion straight”. Every attempt of a hair dresser to create some curls in my hair has ended with something resembling a cute mess after a two, max three hours with only some reminiscence of something remotely resembling waves.
The hair dressers are all so cute when they say “of course, I can do that” being fooled by the word “fine” when they see my hair. And the look in their eyes always says, “I don’t know at which hair salon you have been, girl but this is a child’s play for me. I’m a pro.”
At the same time, if I don’t do anything with my hair to give it some shape after I wash it, I look as if I had wrestles with hens (free form translation from Bulgarian). Air dry or blow dry, no difference.
Will Rahua Voluminous Spray make my hair wavy? No way, Jose! No product has done that, and as you just read professionals can’t do it either.
BUT peeps with wavy prone hair would absolutely love this spray and the beautiful waves it gives (if your hair can do that).
This of course doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy Rahua Voluminous Spray. On the contrary, it gives great volume to my hair which I absolutely love.
Rahua Voluminous Spray is also great for curly and coiled hair. Just make sure to scrunch your hair after you spritz it.
You don’t need half a bottle on your hair. When used in the right quantities, Rahua Voluminous Spray will give volume to your hair, without making it sticky, oily or looking like straw.
Towel dry your hair and spritz from a distance. If you look for volume at the roots, spritz a few times, turn your head upside down, scrunch your hair gently and blow dry the roots.
If you look for volume and some light texture, towel dry your hair, spritz a few times, comb and then scrunch your hair. With your head down blow dry your hair, starting from the roots, then the rest of your hair, scrunching it as you’re drying it.
Use Rahua Voluminous Spray between washes or throughout the day to revive hair, some volume and especially to refresh your curls. Spritz on dry, second-day hair, scrunch your hair here and there and you’re ready to go.
