Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Bonacure Color Save Treatment Review


A few months ago I was lucky enough to be sent some Schwarzkopf hair products to review (you can see my review here),well I received an email from their PR about a month ago asking me if there was anything else from the range I would like to try and she mentioned this product from the same range the Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Bonacure Color Save Treatment - you know me intensive hair conditioners bring it on!

As you know me hair is coloured, super flyaway and super crispy so I was an ideal candidate to try out this product.


The product from the BC Hairtherapy Color Save line comes in a 200ml screw top jar which makes it super easy to use. The product is a super thick white cream - yes it's so thick you can tip the container upside down and none comes out!


Carrying on the Schwarzkopf Bonacure Hairtherapy philosophy of "rebuilding the hair from within" this product also contains Schwarzkopf's amino acid technology to rebuild the hair cells, as well as Schwarzkopf's exclusive colour save technology to protect colour treates hair, a QCA complex to reduce frizziness, and UV filters to protect your hair and it's colour. Big claims there I am sure you'll agree so how did it perform?


This as I said is an intensive type conditioner - you wash your hair as normal, then towel dry it before applying the products to the ends and mid lengths of your hair, you then leave it for 5 - 10 minutes before rinsing. As I said the first thing you notice about this product is the texture - it has a super thick body cream type texture with a pleasant fresh smell - despite it's thickness it spreads easily through the hair and feels pleasant whilst it's on - again surprisingly for it's density it washes it really easily. The first thing you notice when you've washed it out is how nice your wet hair feels, silky and knot free. Drying the hair as normal (naturally , with a swipe of my straighteners)I was left with nice feeling hair, which wasn't too frizzy, and it certainly wasn't weighed down, or greasy - that was my biggest fear with this that it would weigh my hair down. My hair also appeared to be quite shiny and my blonde colours looked less brassy. Despite the fabulous texture though I don't think that this product provided as much moisture and nourishment as I expected - don't get me wrong the condition of my hair has improved a little since I started using it (for around 4 weeks )I think that I just expected more due to the lovely feel and density of the product. I will definitely continue using this product but if I was to repurchase I would probably look to try the corresponding product in the Schwarzkopf BC Hairtherapy Repair Rescue range which hopefully would be a more moisturising / repairing product. If you would like more information on Schwarzkopf hair products please check out their website This product retails for around £10.95 from Schwarzkopf retailers including HQ Hair,  and look fantastic Any questions please let me know x

(Just to add I was sent this product for review purposes but that has in no way influenced my review xx)
