With Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Bergamot and Pink Clay

FRESH START - Balancing solid shampoo for Oily, Fine Hair with zesty grapefruit, lemongrass, bergamot, and gently exfoliating pink clay.

If you find yourself needing to wash your hair more regularly, our FRESH START shampoo bar is the ideal solution for you. A popular misconception is that we need to use stronger products to counter the overproduction of sebum, which is what makes hair oily. However, the more we strip our hair of this natural oil, the more we produce. Pink clay will gently exfoliate, while grapefruit, bergamot and lemongrass essential oils will help balance sebum production. Beautifully balanced haircare does not have to be challenging work with this zesty solid shampoo.

Wild Ingredients

  • Pink Clay gently exfoliates and donates volume
  • Grapefruit and Bergamot essential oils help balance sebum production
  • Lemongrass essential oil complements the other two to create a super fresh and zesty aroma and add extra shine.

    Natural Botanical Shampoo Bars


    Shampoo bars:
    To use your solid shampoo bar, build up some lather by rubbing it to wet hair. Wash all over your hair and scalp then rinse. Repeat once if necessary.

    Help your shampoo bar last longer by keeping it dry between uses on a draining dish, if you need one then please see our accessories.

    Conditionel bar:
    Wash your hair with solid shampoo. Wet the conditioner bar in warm water and apply it on the length of your hair. Please note, the conditioner bar will not lather, simply stroke your hair gently with the bar and watch the conditioner soften, nourish and detangle your hair. We recommend starting with a small amount for your first wash and increasing as required. Allow the conditioner to sit for a few minutes, then rinse. Store dry between use.


    Wild Ona is a family-owned eco-friendly brand with a mission to eliminate plastic waste and unnecessary harsh ingredients from haircare products.

    Their promise is that you CAN have great hair without harsh ingredients or plastic waste!


    Q: Are your shampoo bars suitable for coloured hair?

    A: Yes! Our formulas do not contain sulfates (the ones to blame for stripping off colour) therefore suitable for coloured hair.

    Q: I’m not sure which bar to choose, because my scalp is sensitive, but my hair is oily.

    A: For sensitive scalp, we always advise to go for the PURE bar. Oftentimes people with itchy scalp end up touching it too often which causes hair to get oily quickly.

    I always ask a person if they have oily skin as well. If a person has oily skin then their scalp is naturally more oily too, in that case, they would benefit from BALANCE bar for oily hair.

    Q: I live in hard water; would your shampoo bar be suitable for hard water areas?

    A: Wild Ona bars are pH balanced shampoo, not soap, therefore they are suitable for hard water areas.

    Q: My hair is oily, but I find shampoo bars for oily hair to be too drying.

    A: BALANCE bar has been formulated to help gently cleanse the scalp, help balance sebum production and at the same time nourish dry ends, it will not be drying!

    Q: How long does your shampoo bar last?

    A: It is 90g and depending on usage lasts around 60 washes, or 3 months’ worth of washing, which replaces up to 3 BOTTLES of liquid shampoo!

    Q: Do your bars contain Palm oil?

    A: All our ingredients are certified palm oil-free.

    Q: Can I use your shampoo bar for my children?

    A: Until up to puberty children’s hair produce very little sebum (around 6 times less than adults) therefore, they need only very gentle cleansing. If used for children, we advise not to rub the bar onto the child’s scalp, but rather create lather (foam) in your hands and use it to wash hair and scalp. Our bars are not intended for children below the age of 3.

    Great shampoo

    I bought this to give it a try. Wasn’t sure if washing my hair with a ‘soap’ bar was going to work. I’ve used it twice now and my hair is lovely and clean, soft and smooth. I’m really happy with it.

    Hi Julia, we are so glad that you tried our soap-free shampoo bar and that you had great experience with it! Thanks for your kind words!
    Warm wishes,
