A feather-light mist that swathes hair and scalp in nourishing care, fortifying strands, balancing oil production, and enhancing natural luster.
Usawa is the Swahili word for balance. This essence delivers balance to your sacred hair care ritual, hydrating and protecting so that you – and your hair – feel free.
Reset, refresh and revitalize hair with rice fermented essence designed to shower hair and scalp in layered benefits, nourishing the scalp, fortifying strands, and amplifying hair’s natural shine. A lightweight mist spray perfect for pre-style prep, pre-poo or post-wash to detangle, moisturize & protect.
Fermented rice water and Sudanese hibiscus work together to hydrate dry strands and smooth the cuticle for silky, weightless shine. Generous infusions of traditional plant extracts like aloe vera soften and soothe the scalp while strengthening roots. An innovative blend of snow mushroom works dually to deeply penetrate strands and scalp for enduring hydration, then forms a transparent film over hair to support moisture retention and offer protection from the elements.
Upcycled rambutan extract hydrates and protects the scalp from pollution, and sarcosine maintains the scalp’s microbiome to alleviate dry skin, flaking, and overproduction of oil, leaving hair light, vibrant and refreshed.

THE UZIMA RITUAL

- Post-wash, apply mist to wet hair and allow to dry along with strands.
- Repeat as needed when your hair is calling for a refresh.
FOR COILY, KINKY, AND CURLY HAIR EXPECT TO SEE
Hair will feel hydrated and supple. Frizz and breakage will diminish with consistent use, leaving hair smooth and tangle-free for longer. Dry itchy scalp will resolve, and strands will lengthen without losing lift or feeling weighed down.
For straight Hair expect to see
Hair will feel lighter and gain lift while still holding definition. Oily scalp will be tamed and dry scalp alleviated. Expect strands and scalp to stay fresh for longer, helping both to feel revitalized.
For Chemically treated Hair expect to see
A nourishing blend of plant extracts helps bring hair back to life by hydrating and reducing breakage. Strands will stay soft and nourished even during styling and straightening.
Fermented rice, a hydrating post-biotic packed with antioxidants, amino acids and proteins, combines with the nourishing and moisture-retaining properties of high molecular weight Snow Mushroom, a plant form of hyaluronic acid that keeps moisture in place for a soft, smooth finish on hair. The flower acids from Sudanese Hibiscus smooth strands, fortify hair, and reduce greasy appearance while still encouraging shine.
When fused with the energizing properties of upcycled rambutan extract and sarcosine’s power to maintain the scalp microbiome, USAWA’s bio-led formula encourages both hair and scalp to maintain moisture for smooth, hydrated strands and a soft, silkened scalp.
