How to use Wella Elements Eco Refills
New Elements Refill Pouches have been carefully designed to help you make a big difference with just one small change.
Wella have become increasingly aware of their role in changing salon and consumer behaviours when it comes to hair products; that’s why 2022 has seen the introduction of new eco-friendly refill pouches for Elements shampoos, conditioners, and masks!
Made with 25% recycled plastic, these recyclable pouches offer a greener alternative to replacing old plastic bottles and tubes. Great for use in salon or at home, each refill pouch uses up to 73% less plastic per ml* for amazing haircare that’s as gentle to the planet as it is to your clients’ hair.

Using Elements Refills in Salon
We all know how much plastic can sit at the backwash. Wella’s innovative Recharge Station allows you to decant your shampoo, conditioner, and mask directly from the eco-friendly pouch. Made from 92% recycled plastic, the elegantly designed refill station squeezes the perfect amount of product out with no mess at the basin. A simple and sustainable solution for any salon.
Using Elements Refills at home
Not just for the salon, Elements Refills are great for minimising plastic waste at home. Rather than throwing out empty plastics, clients can keep their existing bottles and jars and top them up with their favourite Elements pouch. To cut down plastic consumption even further, product can be poured directly out of the pouch to minimise any reliance on plastic bottles.
When refilling, you don’t need to wash the bottles beforehand, but remember to check for any contamination or malodour before dispensing new product.
Choosing the best Elements formula
All Elements products are created to be gentle on the hair and scalp, but which is the best formula for each client?
Elements Renewing – best for normal/balanced scalp
Great for all hair types, the Renewing Range offers a gentle, foaming cleanser alongside a lightweight conditioner, rich mask and leave-in detangling spray to nourish hair and maintain the scalp’s natural moisture balance. Formulated with up to 99% naturally-derived ingredients, this sulphate and silicone-free caring range reveals beautifully hydrated hair that’s up to 30% smoother.*

Elements Calming – best for dry/delicate scalp
Some clients’ scalps need that extra bit of TLC. The Elements Calming collection delicately cleanses and soothes dry scalps to restore comfort without weighing hair down. Sulphate and silicone-free, the Calming Shampoo and tailored serum use 98% natural ingredients to replenish hair and scalp without any harmful additives.
Elements Purifying – best for oily scalp
The specialist Elements Purifying Pre-Shampoo Clay with kaolin clay whisks away impurities and product build-up, absorbing excess sebum and rebalancing the scalp for a truly refreshed feeling. For best results, the clay should be applied to dry scalp, left for 5 minutes, and followed with the Renewing Shampoo and Conditioner.
