Key Ingredients

  • Native Waratah Flower - this unique native Australian cellular extract contains phyto compounds that care for your hair. These compounds such as tryptophan and quercetin can repair damaged hair, promote growth of healthy hair and increase thickness. 
  • Amino Acids (Betaine) - A type of amino acid created from sugar beets. It protects the scalp,  improves hair strength and greatly reduces frizz. No wonder we have had customers reporting that it has reduced their hair fall. 
  • The Made Safe accreditation is a Safe Cosmetics Australia certification that demonstrates our healthy ingredient philosophy and commitment to reducing toxicity.
  • The Toxic Free accreditation confirms that our creations are 100% free from any ingredient on the Safe Cosmetics Australia toxic free hotlist.

After 3 years of testing many (let us emphasise MANY!) formulas, it came down to a special balance of just 14 ingredients to create our first Woohoo natural shampoo. 

Plenty of shampoos out there have ingredient lists triple this size, but don’t let this shampoo’s appearance of simplicity be mistaken for being average. Quite the opposite.

Healthy, soft, smooth, shiny, strong hair all starts from your scalp. The Woohoo ‘Respect My Roots’ Natural Shampoo cleanses with care and respect for both your hair and scalp. The gentle cleansing action is colour safe and won’t over-wash your hair (because over-washing is one of the biggest cause of dryness and frizz!).

The biodegradable formula doesn’t use any silicone to coat your hair, which means the bounce, softness and shine is your real hair, not a coating that builds up over time to weigh it down and prevent nutrients from reaching your hair.

Step 1 - Shampoo

Apply a small amount (less than you would with your usual shampoo) to damp hair & scalp. Massage to lather (don’t forget your roots!), & rinse well. 

Step 2 - Conditioner

Apply a small amount to damp hair, working through lengths & ends. Leave for  up to 1 to 2 minutes (very fine hair can wash out right away). Rinse well.

Bonus tips to get the most out of your Woohoo natural shampoo and conditioner

  • If you're switching from silicone-based products it might take a few washes to see great results, as your hair is used to being coated with silicone. It's worth the wait!
  • Your shampoo will only have a little bit of foam. More foam does not mean a better clean! :)
  • Less is more! You probably need less shampoo and conditioner than your usual products. If you need help moving it through long hair, try adding a *little* water rather than more product.
  • Your conditioner won't feel super slidy and slippy. Work it through your hair with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb and wait 1-2 minutes before washing out.
  • When you're conditioning, focus on the lengths of your hair rather than your scalp.
  • Depending on your hair’s porosity and thickness, you don’t need to leave your conditioner on for very long. If your hair feels weighed down, then you might have conditioned for a bit too long.
  • If you’re needing some scalp deep conditioning or your scalp is oily, try using the conditioner as a pre-shampoo treatment every few washes. It’s the best! Oily or short hair types may even want to skip the after-shampoo conditioner.
  • You’ll need less styling product after caring for your locks with our shampoo and conditioner.
