As a naturalista in Australia, you could opt to buy online, try locally made, organic hair products, or build a D.I.Y product stash. Let's dig into the first two options - if you'd like to read some DIY recipes, click here.
This online store stocks hundreds of hair products, such as SheaMoisture and Cantu. They ship internationally to Australia at affordable rates. You can find the following deep conditioner and oils on their site.
- Cantu Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream
- Cantu Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque
- Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Extra Moisture Transitioning Milk
- Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque
- ApHogee Two Step Protein Treatment
- Tropical Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil
- Olde Jamaica African Shea Butter
This affordable online store stocks an even wider variety of hair goodies. I've also heard that they ship out products quite fast. Trust me, being that Australia is a remote continent in the South Pacific, this is a huge plus!
- Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo
- Aubrey Organics GPB Protein Deep Conditioner
- Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose Conditioner Moisture Intensive
K-Mart & Target
If you're looking for combs, brushes, hair ties, bobby pins and hair accessories, you're bound to find plenty here. K-Mart & Target also stock a wide variety of internationally known electronic styling tools like blow-dryers and curling wands.
Coles and Woolworths
If you like to add glycerin, honey, apple cider vinegar, or aloe vera juice to your hair products, you'll find plenty here. If you're after organic extra virgin oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil, you'll find these in the food aisle. (Thank goodness for nutritional food items that are just as great for our hair!)
