LoCou - Blog
An earth-loving brand born from the heart of Melissa Niblock-Bell, LoCou specialises in 100% Australian made, natural, eco-friendly professional hair products.
The ‘Lo’ part of LoCou was taken from her little boy’s name, Logan – her inspiration in life, he’s her daily reminder to be the best person she can be.
With over 17 years’ experience as a Master Hairstylist and Colourist, Melissa came across inconsistencies within the haircare industry, where she was expected to recommend products that contained a host of barely pronounceable ingredients. It was time for a change.
Transforming hair, ethically and sustainably, one bottle at a time.
Out on a mission to create an ethical, sustainable and high-performance haircare range, Melissa also wanted to produce a boutique product that didn’t compromise on luxury or quality. Combining nature, science and hair, each LoCou formula contains key ingredients that truly transform your hair, achieving remarkable results.
Combined with sustainable packaging and refill options, the entire LoCou range is free from any nasties including free from silicone, sulphates, parabens, ethoxylates, paragons, propylene glycol, petrochemical cleansers, phthalates, DEA and artificial colours. We’re strictly against testing on animals and are cruelty-free.
One bottle at a time, LoCou is here to give you lush, gorgeous hair, while leaving a positive impact on our planet. Thanks for coming along with us on this journey.
At LoCou, we are super passionate about reducing waste and remaining sustainable, so offering an eco-refill option was a no-brainer for us.
You can either have your bottles topped up at a LoCou salon, or purchase a refill pouch from our website. Our refill options are cost-effective, contain 70% less plastic than bottles, produce 7 times less air pollution and 7 times less fuel consumption (low carbon emissions) while transporting, and are designed to help our customers to make better choices.
The entire LoCou range is free from silicone, sulphates, parabens, ethoxylates, paragons, propylene glycol, petrochemical cleansers, phthalates, DEA, and artificial colours. LoCou buys ingredients and packaging from Australian suppliers, retaining money in our local economy.
LoCou haircare contains 99.5% naturally derived ingredients, specifically chosen to create luscious, salon-quality hair. The range is made up of natural oils, mineral ingredients and botanical extracts that have proven benefits on the hair, and the environment. Urtica Dioica (Nettle) boosts hair growth and strength. It can also help oily scalp, dandruff and reduce irritation. Due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, keeps the scalp in good health. We use Hydrolized Rice Protein and Quinoa for moisture retention and to boost collagen production, and choose oils such as Flax Seed, Avocado and Jojoba for their amazing ability to reduce breakage and frizz, and to leave the hair with amazing shine and strength.
Whether you’re looking to update your current hair care regime or you’re a hairstylist wanting amazing eco-friendly professional hair products for your salon, LoCou is here for you.
