Are your Bloc's soap free?

Yes, all of our Bloc's are 100% soap free! This means no stripping away your skin and scalps protective barrier. We don't ever recommend using soap on your scalp and face because it will leave you with dry and irritated skin and a good chance of build up in your hair.

Are your Bloc's sulfate free?

Yes! Unlike a large amount of hair-care products on the market, all of our products are completely sulfate free.

Why does pH balance matter for hair?

Unlike our skin, the natural pH of hair is between 4.5-5.5. It’s important to use products that are around this pH to maintain our optimum level for healthy and strong hair. Soap-based bars have a pH range of 9-10 which will open your hair cuticle leading to damage, friction, tangling, dullness, and dryness. As soap-free bars range between 4-6, this pH level does not disturb your hair cuticle or scalp, so they are cleansed with any dirt and oils washed away with water, leaving your hair healthy and shiny, just the way you like it.

Are your products made in Australia?

Yes, our small business is based in Australia, and we choose to manufacture all of our Blocs locally with Australian manufacturers.

Are your products safe for coloured hair?

Yes! All of our Blocs are ideal for coloured hair thanks to our gentle, sulfate-free formulations. We don't include harsh chemicals that can cause hair colour to fade.

Wondering what ingredients to avoid if you have colour treated hair? Here's a list of colour stripping ingredients: sodium lauryl sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, retinyl palmitate,triclosan, sodium chloride, formaldehyde, polysorbates and triclosan to name a few.
