10 of the Best Baby Shampoos in Australia in 2022

Don’t we all just love that sweet smell of a new baby? And what better way to keep that gorgeous baby hair looking and smelling fresh but with a beautiful, gentle baby shampoo. 

But not just any baby shampoo.

A good baby shampoo can help loosen up those foods, oils and anything else those chubby little hands rub into their own hair. However as it tends to remove oils, some baby shampoos can also be incredibly drying. That’s why it’s important to choose the right one - a baby shampoo that is gentle enough to use regularly without drying out baby’s scalp and hair. 

Whilst every baby is going to be different - there’s no one size fits all - we’ve included some of our best shampoos right here starting with the most important things you need to look out for when choosing your favourite baby shampoo. 

What are the important things to look for in your baby shampoo?


Opting for tear-free shampoo is unlikely to be irritating to the baby’s eyes.

Fragrance-free or gentle fragrance:

A fragrance-free baby shampoo keeps nasty odour away and makes it less irritating for babies.


Selecting baby shampoos that are phthalate-free boost healthy hair growth.


Retaining moisture and avoiding drying of scalps is essential.

Natural ingredients used:

Babies are relaxed with natural, soothing ingredients incorporated into their skincare products. 

Here are 10 of the best mum-approved baby shampoos in Australia in 2022:
