If you are on a journey to find the best hair care range for your hair health, then look no further than our MUVO range.

You already know how your daily habits impact on how your hair looks and feels. You’ve also likely heard the saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’... but did you know that native Australian fruits and plants could be the secret to healthier, shiny hair?

If you need your hair to survive a hard day, we have selected native Australian extracts that can stand up to the challenge - protecting your hair from the environment the way nature has planned.

Here we share with you these curious and unique ingredients we’ve sourced, the native Australian extracts found in our range of MUVO hair care products.

Australian natives are the toughest botanicals on the planet and powerhouses of natural actives needed to combat extreme, unpredictable conditions. They withstand damage against 50 degree Australian heat, manage to keep their bright colours in both flowers and leaves, and protect themselves from the harsh Australian environment.

The powerful natural molecules found in each of these species have been designed over millions of years of evolution to give your hair a fighting chance against dehydration, high temperatures, UV exposure and more.

Hair care has never been so natural! Feed your hair with nature’s ancient blueprints – powerful combinations of plant nutrients for a healthier scalp and improved hair growth. And don’t we all want that!
