Our review compares shampoos on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which shampoo they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 2,410 Australians for their feedback on the shampoo(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last six months.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

An Australian owned and made brand since 1981, Natures Organic has a number of brands operating under its umbrella, with the brand focused on sustainable practices and organic products, with its range of products covering hygiene through to cleaning.

Clarifying shampoos are a type of shampoo that are made to be more effective at removing impurities such as oil, dirt, product buildup (such as hairsprays, mousses and gels), along with chemicals such as chlorine. They typically have a more concentrated formula, and higher pH levels to combat these impurities, but can also strip your hair of its natural oils if you use it too much.
Dry shampoo is a type of shampoo that’s used to absorb dirt and grime without actually getting your hair wet, meaning you can apply it at virtually any time. Dry shampoo is often used in between washes to help make hair look less oily, although doesn’t clean your hair as well as traditional shampoo.
Washing the dog often includes using dog shampoo, but can you substitute human shampoo instead? The short answer is no, as human shampoo has a different pH level to dog shampoo, which can lead to skin irritation on your dog, meaning it’s best for your furry friend to stick to its own shampoo.
