All About Natural Shampoo
What is Natural Shampoo?
Natural shampoo is a hair care product for cleansing and managing your hair that contains naturally derived ingredients with no harsh chemicals, like sulphates or parabens. This means plant-based formulas that are packed with botanical goodness, like oils, proteins and butters rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Many formulations are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. These ingredients nourish the hair deeply but are gentle enough to not irritate sensitive scalps and cause further damage.
A natural shampoo doesn’t always mean that it is organic. Organic shampoos are shampoos that contain ingredients that were grown using no synthetic fertilisers and pesticides and have not been genetically modified. You can find both natural and organic shampoos at Hairhouse by the most loved and trusted local and international brands in the world.
Are Natural Shampoos Better for Your Hair?
While conventional shampoos smell amazing and get your hair squeaky clean, they are also loaded with a lot of synthetic nasties that can strip your natural oils and make your scalp dry and itchy. Natural and organic shampoo and conditioner can do the job of regular shampoo without any harsh artificial chemicals, such as sulphates, silicones, parabens, artificial fragrances, preservatives and fillers. Not only is natural shampoo better for your hair – it’s better for the planet, too. With less chemicals being washed down the drain, you’ll be helping to lessen the negative impact that these shampoos can have on the environment and its animals.
How Does Natural Shampoo Work?
Natural shampoo provides gentle cleansing for your scalp and hair using ingredients that have been derived from natural sources. This includes plenty of botanical oils and butters to hydrate and strengthen the hair with none of the synthetic chemicals that can irritate sensitive scalps and strip the natural moisture, leaving strands dry and brittle.
Natural shampoos work their magic in a gentle way and don’t lather up as much as a regular shampoo as there are no sulphates. It may take your hair some time to get used to it, but believe us – the results will be worth it!

Hairhouse stock the best natural shampoo in Australia for all hair types. To find your perfect match, simply use our filter feature and select your hair concern to find a range of natural shampoos to tackle the problem.
We have volume boosters for fine hair to plump up limp strands and put some bounce back into your hair. There’s Davroe Volume Senses Amplifying Shampoo with watercress and quinoa protein to strengthen, condition and add unbelievable volume. There’s also evo Gluttony Volumising Shampoo to build body in brittle locks and Nak Hair Volume Shampoo with coconut oil and aloe vera to leave hair light and fresh without weighing it down.
Oily hair can be caused by many things, from excess sebum to poor eating habits. Often, styling products like creams, pomades, gels and mousse can build-up and leave your hair lank and greasy. A clarifying shampoo will gently remove the grime and debris and restore balance to your hair. Try Juuce Deep Cleanse Shampoo to remove grease, product and chlorine from roots and ends while protecting from UV, heat and oxidation damage. For another excellent option, try evo Springsclean Shampoo which is great for curly and wavy hair.
To moisturise scalps and keep flakes at bay, you’ll need a good anti-dandruff shampoo. Nak Hair Dandruff Control Shampoo and Juuce Peppermint Shampoo both use peppermint oil to calm redness and relieve itching while deeply nourishing scalps to control dandruff.
To keep natural hair healthy and balanced, use an everyday shampoo like O&M Maintain the Mane with Banksia Flower and oils to infuse hair with antioxidants and nutrients. For coloured and blonde hair, use a shampoo that prevents fading and keeps your colour vibrant. We have De Lorenzo shampoos to intensify your shade and add highlights, such as Novafusion Cherry Red and Novafusion Rose Gold. Blondes can try one of our many toning shampoos that eliminate brassiness with violet pigments and keeps your colour cool and fresh, such as Juuce Ultra Blonde Shampoo.
Calm the frizz and add moisture to dry and damaged hair with a smoothing shampoo. Aromas Curl Shampoo with Argan Oil, Eleven Smooth Me Now Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Alfaparf Semi di Lino Smoothing Shampoo will combat dryness, eliminate frizziness, define curls and protect hair against humidity for glossy and hydrated locks.
If you’re looking to cut down on packaging, why not try a shampoo bar? KMSsolid shampoos are compact and can save you a ton of money on shampoo bottles with bars for soothing sensitive scalps, adding volume and boosting moisture.
