We produce all of our own hair to ensure all products are made from virgin 100% Burmese human hair, with absolutely no chemicals, coatings or fillers.
RAW believes in: weaves as an informed choice, protective styling and profits with purpose, aiming to improve the lives of a small number of local Myanmar women, through training and employment.
The main ingredient of the shampoo is the bark of a shrub known as “Tayaw,” which is combined with the fruit of the Kinpun tree. The Tayaw is shredded, washed and soaked in cool water, sometimes with a few limes. Meanwhile, the fruit is boiled and sieved.
Both liquids are then mixed together. The Tayaw bark acts as a conditioner making the hair soft and shiny while the Kinpun fruitproduces a soapy foam and acts as a shampoo.
