New in from Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure

Today I thought I’d share two new launches from Schwarzkopf Professional that I’ve been loving the last few months.

I have quite a lot of hair, but it’s fine and curly, and quite prone to frizz. So it needs hydrating, but without being weighed down by greasy products. These two new products deliver on both fronts.

Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure Hyaluronic Moisture Kick BB Hydra Pearl for Normal to Dry Curl Hair (R550)

What they say: Revitalise thirsty hair with Schwarzkopf Professional Hyaluronic Moisture Kick BB Hydra Pearl, a does-it-all leave-in treatment for dry, curly and hard to manage hair.

Hyaluronic Moisture Kick BB Hydra Pearl will boost lacklustre locks with added strength and quenching care, balancing the hair’s natural moisture content with a hyaluronic acid derivative. The addition of glycerine-infused pearls ensure that each strand is hydrated whilst also improving strength and elasticity.

The bi-textured treatment can be used following every wash to help to revitalise hair, add shine, boost hydration and ensure that your style is shielded with heat protection up to 80°C.

What I say: This is my favourite of the two because it delivers serious moisture and I prefer to add product to my hair with my hands, rather than a spray.

I use hyaluronic acid on my face everyday, and since getting this I use it on my hair every time I wash it, too. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any residue on the hair. My hair is softer, smoother and definitely super hydrated. My frizz is pretty much a thing of the past, too, which is great because my hair is shorter now, so needs more attention. As this formula was developed for curly hair, it is designed to help to accentuate curls, and massively reduce frizz – which, as I said, it does an amazing job of.

It is quite pricey for the BC range, but you use such a tiny amount, the 100ml bottle will last you ages, so still great value for money.

Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure pH Color Freeze Spray Conditioner for Coloured Hair (R320)

What they say: When your coloured hair needs extra hydration and vibrancy, reach for the Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure pH 4.5 Color Freeze Spray Conditioner.

Colouring your hair can leave it looking and feeling brittle. This leave-in spray formulation helps to detangle and smooth fragile hair, while making your colour pop. The bi-phase formula distributes intensive caring agents over the hair evenly without any residue, helping to better protect the cuticle layer by sealing it up.

The pH 4.5 Color Freeze Spray Conditioner is infused with nourishing ingredients that fill the structural gaps in hair, improving elasticity and strength so that colour fade is minimised.

What I say: This is great for days when I’m going to be heat styling my hair. It makes my hair soft and manageable, and thanks to the added heat protection, I don’t have to add any extra products. I never know if these products actually help with colour fading, as my colour is usually hand done by David Gillson, so looks lived-in anyway.
