-Cacao Butter: Strands are moisturised, and their strength and resilience is boosted. It pumps up the volume, thickness and shine of your hair as well as replenishing naturally-occurring oils.
-Coconut Oil: Helps your hair grow healthier, thicker, and longer. Vitamins and fatty acids nourish your scalp and remove sebum build-up from hair follicles, which can speed up growth.
-Panthenol (provitamin B5): Adds body to your hair, acts as a deep moisturiser and shine improver. Penetrates the cuticle of your hair and brings moisture to the cortex, leading to more resilient and manageable hair.
-Hydrolysed Oats: Retains moisture to make your hair shiny, reduce breakage, soften and smoothen. Repairs and protects your hair from damage.
-Australian White Clay (Kaolin): This clay helps to anchor scent, and can strengthen hair, improves elasticity, and help repair damage.
-Rhassoul Clay (Moroccan Lava Clay) has been used by North African women for hair care for centuries; it prevents hair breakage, moisturises, boosts healthy growth and unblocks clogged follicles. It is found in our Mint Chocolate bar.
The Essential Oils:
-Lemongrass oil is distilled from the leaves and woody stalks of the lemongrass plant; it has a fresh, invigorating and sweet aroma. Lemon myrtle is native to Queensland; its oil has a beautiful scent described as a blend of lemongrass, lime and lemon.
-Peppermint Essential Oil: Gives a beautiful minty scent. The peppermint plant is a versatile perennial herb that has been used since ancient times.
-Orange 5 Fold and Pink Grapefruit Essential Oils: These fresh, citrusy essential oils are said to improve blood circulation to the scalp and strengthen the roots, and exhibit some antimicrobial properties.

Did you know... most bottled shampoo is 80% water, but our bars are an ultra-concentrated 100% shampoo- you add the water yourself!
Our bars are BIG
At 100g this heavyweight will last you a long time and is cost-effective: a higher end SLS-free shampoo bottle at the supermarket would cost at least $10; so that’s $30 for three compared to $19.99 for a Honua Bar which will last just as long. And increase that saving with the conditioner. Most other shampoo bars on the market weigh in the 60-90g range.
Our bars are SOAP FREE
Beware of 'shampoo’ bars that are really just soap... read the ingredients! If it’s a list of oils, butters and sodium hydroxide or caustic soda then it’s just soap, not shampoo. Soap has a very high pH and is damaging to your hair in the long run, check out our Soap Free page for more info.
