Earlier this year, we brought you a list of the best hair products - and beauty products of 2019 - which was a great way to round up 2019 but also introduce you to hair care and beauty that other customers have been loving. To build on that, we wanted to introduce you to our top 10 Australian hair products - as well as beauty products and hair appliances, of course!
To qualify for this list, the products must be made by Australian-owned companies. You’ll probably recognise quite a few of your favourite hair care brands and beauty products on this list, because we love championing Aussie products and talk about them a lot.
So if you’re looking for a homegrown Aussie brand to support, look no further than our list of Australian hair products to add to your cart today.

Once you own a Muk hair appliance, you might not ever go back. Especially their cult product, the Curl Stick. For those unfamiliar, you probably want to know why this particular appliance beats out other curling irons? Well, to start it clocks in at under $150! But it’s also popular among both hair professionals and novices alike thanks to its unique interchangeable barrel system. Yep, buy this wand and you get four different barrels that can help create different styles of curls and waves:
- 19-25mm conical barrel for medium curls and natural movement
- 25-25mm straight barrel for soft, flowing bouncy curls
- 28-22mm wedge barrel for long lasting bouncy curls and soft beachy waves
- 38-27mm oval barrel for long lasting deep, luscious waves or glamourous old Hollywood curls
Apart from the fact that you can create so many different looks with this one wand, it also features handy tech like five different temperature settings as well as microprocessor technology to ensure even and consistent temperatures at all times.
For many Australian beauty addicts, Kevin Murphy is the holy grail when it comes to hair products - natural, potent ingredients that actually work their magic. While their ranges are all pretty popular, we’ve noticed that our customers absolutely love the Angel.Wash and Angel.Rinse. The Angel range is Kevin Murphy’s version of colour care shampoo and conditioner which aims to transform fine, fragile hair that has been damaged through colour treatments.
It’s infused with hydrolysed oat protein to help add body back into fine hair without weighing it down. It’s also pumped full of powerful antioxidants to help repair your hair. The Wash gently cleanses your scalp while the Rinse helps nourish and moisturise.
We often get asked about a purple shampoo that doesn't break the bank and our go-to answer is always Muvo Ultra Blonde. Apart from the fact that it's Aussie-owned and made, Muvo are also really big on creating salon quality hair care minus all the nasties - and this shows in their Ultra Blonde duo. The shampoo is maximum strength to make sure that it gets rid of all those yellow and brassy tones. But unlike some other toning shampoos, it doesn't dry out your hair and instead leaves it feeling hydrated and supple. Just use it once or twice a week to make sure that your blonde is vibrant and fresh.
Double down on results with the Ultra Blonde conditioner which assists the shampoo in further removing any yellow tones. Plus it's an extra boost of hydration, leaving your hair more manageable overall.
Is it a conditioner? Or does it fall in the hair treatments category? We’d say this colour boosting conditioner lies somewhere in the middle. What we know for sure though, is that it does a really good job of providing a much-needed colour boost to blonde hair. All you need to do is apply it to damp, towel-dried hair, comb it through then leave it in for three minutes before rinsing. Voila! Instantly fresher blonde minus those brassy yellow tones.
The treatment side of it will help soften and condition your hair plus a moisture boost will reduce frizz and increase shine. This one is also vegan, cruelty-free and made without sulfates, paraben or gluten.
Whether it’s in the classic packaging or this sleek new one, the Replends is one Australian hair product that you need to add to your routine. It’s potent but gentle enough for every day use for all hair types - who doesn’t want softer and healthier hair?! It also detangles your hair, which ultimately helps to reduce split ends and general wear and tear.
The ingredient lineup is completely vegan - with baobab seed, coconut oil and hydrolysed rice protein among the few potent additions that are going to transform your hair.
Well it’s no surprise that this made both our Hero Products of 2019 list AND our top Aussie products. It’s just too good not to mention. Formulated from plant-based ingredients - and mostly organic ones too - this mascara has been a godsend for those with sensitive eyes that often can’t wear other eye makeup products. But even for the most dedicated beauty lovers, this wax-based mascara has proven its worth thanks to its ability to lengthen and add volume - plus all those nourishing ingredients can help with your lash health too.
We understand that pink shampoo isn’t for everyone so this Australian made Muk Ultra Soft duo is our pick of the lot for general shampoo and conditioner. It’s gentle enough for everyday use, but is still potent enough to help replace lost nutrients and moisture.
With its main goal to gently cleanse and restore moisture, this range is suitable for all hair types. Follow up the Ultra Soft Shampoo with its matching conditioner counterpart to instantly detangle and add hydration.
It came out on top of all the styling products in our Hero Products of 2019 list and here is De Lorenzo’s cult Rejuven8 The Ends again. This hair treatment meets styling product is a must-have in your hair routine. It’s lineup of natural and nourishing ingredients helps seal your hair to prevent split ends, protect against UV damage, moisturise your hair for extended shine and softness - what more can a hair product lover ask for?!
There’s a reason why this cult product is still a beauty mainstay after all these years on the market - it seriously works. What sets it apart from your average primer, we hear you asking? Well, it’s loaded with skin soothers like Vitamin E, chamomile and yarrow extracts, which play a part in keeping your skin hydrated and smoother so that your foundation can glide on and sit nicely. You can even use the Auto Pilot primer to remove your foundation before re-applying, simply put it on then wipe off - it’s like a quick hydrating treatment to help your reclaim your glow!
A millennial pink mask can seem like it’s been made for Instagram but we promise that this Australian Pink Clay Mask really works some magic. Made from kaolin clay, it can target a lot of skincare concerns such as easing eczema and acne, helping pimples heal faster and also for general cleansing like removing toxin and pollutants from your skin. Made from natural ingredients and minus all the nasties, this mask is suitable for all skin types - including those who suffer from sensitive skin.
