Eleven Australia : Affordable Salon Haircare

Hello! It’s me! Did you forget that I existed? Probably, but I am back now. I should probably start my blog posts with more engaging comments that draw you in, but here I am just rambling aimlessly. But let’s get into it - today we are chatting all things Eleven Australia!

I have been using Eleven Australia for a little while now and I have absolutely fallen in love with the brand. For those of you who haven’t heard of the brand before, let me introduce them:

Proudly Australian made and owned, ELEVEN AUSTRALIA is the exciting new venture from leading haircare distributor Ozdare, developed with Creative Directors, Joey Scandizzo, three time Australian Hairdresser of the Year, and Andrew O’Toole, esteemed hair and fashion photographer in Australia and the UK. They were driven by a desire for fresh, uncomplicated and affordable solution to haircare. It’s a professional range of shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products made from high performance ingredients - without the excessive price tag. Basically - salon haircare without having to sacrifice your first born to purchase. PETA approved, cruelty free (no animal testing) and paraben free with recyclable packaging. ELEVEN Australia also has a range of Vegan and Gluten free products.

I have used a lot of their products, so I thought I’d just do a mass review post for you so you can get a good perspective of the whole range. So without further adieu...



Repair My Hair Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner* $27.95 each

Let’s start with the newest release from Eleven. Their new duo is designed to helps to rebuild hair from within, and leaves it feeling stronger and healthier. If you are constantly using heat on your hair, dying it, or just finding that you hair is a bit lack lustre, damaged and sad, then this range is designed for you. It contains plant extracts and proteins strengthen and nourish, while also helping to protect against heat up to 220 degrees, while helping to restore volume and fullness.

These two have only been out for about a month now, but I am IN LOVE. To be far (and this is going to spoil the rest of my review...), there’s not much from Eleven that I don’t like, but this is amazing. The first week I used it every wash (so about three times a week), and it worked brilliantly. It’s now in my spare shower, that I only use after a bath, meaning I am using it about one a week. I have to say that I almost feel like I see better results when I use it every second or third wash. It leaves my hair so soft and shiny. I have noticed that I get longer between washes while using them, and that my hair styles so much easier. They are a game changer, honestly!

Dry Finish Texture Spray* $24.95

If you are after that ‘undone’ or textured look, then this is the one for you. It is a weightless spray that gives you long-lasting volume and lived-in texture. This is designed for this messy, but cute looks (that I’m not very good at).

I have a love hate relationship with texture products. They’re either too sticky, make my hair feel like cement or make my hair super oily. I haven’t found the perfect one yet, and this, unfortunately, still wasn’t the perfect one. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice product but wasn’t perfect for me. I do use it when I’m curling my hair, particularly on 2nd curls, or wash day hair. It is lightweight and gives my hair that lived in texture, but I do find it a tiny bit too sticky for my liking, particularly when I accidentally use too much.

Make Me Shine Spray Gloss* $24.95

Want red-carpet shiny hair? Then this is the product to get it with! It is a shine serum that helps to smooth fizziness and flyaways, all while locking in moisture. It is a lightweight, watermelon scent mist (THAT SMELLS INCREDIBLE!!) that will give you that luscious glossy look you have always been dreaming of.

I was very unsure about this product when I first received it. As long time readers will know, I really struggle with oily hair. It’s the bane of my existence and I hate it. It gets oily super quickly, then itchy and uncomfortable. I was sooo worried this product would add to that, but it doesn’t. What it does do is make your hair look so fresh, so shiny and frizz free. It honestly looks like I’ve been into the salon and had someone else style my hair for me. It is the perfect finishing product for any styling days!

Hydrate My Hair Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner* $24.95

Hydration has never been too much of a challenge for me, but if it is for you then this duo is what you need. It is a rich, lush formula, this thirst-quenching conditioner is built specifically for helping strands beat dry Aussie heat. So you know it’s ready to deliver seriously silky-soft results!
Rich in fatty acids and strengthening proteins, Hydrate My Hair Moisture Conditioner locks down the cuticle for smooth, nourished locks with every use. 

This. Duo. Is. Heavenly. There is no other way to describe it. They smell AMAZING and leave my hair feeling incredible. I pretty sure this is the shampoo and conditioner that Kate also uses on my hair when I get my hair done (that’s how you know it’s good). It gives lightweight moisture, for hydrated and shiny hair, without any residue, stickiness or oiliness. They have been the dream duo. I used a couple of minis before getting my hands on the big one but I have no regrets whatsoever.

Miracle Hair Treatment* $24.95

This is the iconic Eleven product that gets all the hype. This has been around since the brand started, with one product designed to target eleven hair needs (see the link now? Because it took me a while..) I’m not going to go through all eleven benefits, but it is designed to help boost shine, protect hair, detangle and strengthen, amongst a variety of other things. It’s your all in one treatment product.

The best thing about this is how easy it is to use. I apply one or two pumps after I’ve washed my hair, before I style, or in the morning, just as a product to help care for my hair. It feels weightless (like I haven’t put anything in) and I have definitely noticed my hair looking healthier the longer I use it. It is just so good having one product that can do what you might need 8 other products for.

If you didn’t pick up, I’m basically in love with everything that Eleven does and already have got my eye on my next few purchases. They can do no wrong in my books - they’re effective, smell amazing and don’t break the bank. There is nothing worse than your hair dresser trying to pressure you into buying super expensive hair products that break the bank and don’t even do a whole lot. When Kate heard that I was using them she was VERY excited and hasn’t questioned my haircare routine since, because it’s what she also uses in my hair.

In my closing statement - you cannot do wrong with this brand. There, that’s it, I’m done. 

You can shop Eleven from their Website or AdoreBeauty
