Schwarzkopf Professional recently launched its new Bonacure range targeted at every hair concern- a claim we’ve heard before but this time we really put it to test. While the brand has always been on top of the hair care game, the new range came in with different packaging and innovative formula backed by ingredients that are focussed on the concern. With different hair types and concerns to tackle, Team ELLE got to experience and review the Bonacure range first and the results are amusing. Here’s what the team has to say:

Range: Collagen Volume Boost Micellar
As someone who has thin, frizzy hair with a combination of oily and dry scalp, this shampoo made a good amount of difference in one wash. It stripped off the usual greasy texture that I would feel after using the previous shampoo. My hair feels light but still looks fuller and definitely feels smoother than before. However, it will still take about 4-5 washes to be sure of the consistency in results.
Sukriti Shahi, Beauty & Wellness Editor
If there’s one thing that Ariel and I don’t have in common, it’s her smooth and shiny hair after stepping out of the water. My hair becomes a pigeon nest after hair wash if I don’t follow a strict routine to tame the frizz. Having a hair wash routine that can handle the concern at the first step is a blessing. Schwarzkopf Professional frizz-control range not only gives a squeaky clean scalp but also leaves hair manageable after the wash. It adds instant softness and shine that can be enhanced further with a hair serum or leave-in cream. To be able to manage frizz without frequent heat styling and using multiple products makes it a good pick for my hair.

Range: Repair and Rescue
As someone who dyes her hair the minute something goes wrong in her life (which is pretty often), I’m no stranger to the damage that’s come along with it. Over the years my hair has lost its volume, become prone to breakage and embraced frizz in all of its glory. So, when it comes to hair care I’m always on the lookout for products that can either reverse the damage or at least temporarily reduce the frizz.
When I first tried out Schwarzkopf’s Bonacure Repair Rescue Range, I expected it just temporarily to soften my hair but it did so much more! Very rarely do I come across shampoos that ‘claim’ to repair your hair and actually do it because I’ve been using this for a week and I can feel my hair become healthier. However, the leave-in conditioner was a saviour for me! Not only has it permanently reduced my frizz but it’s also made the ends of my hair less dry. So if you’re someone who’s on the lookout for a hair care range that works miraculously for super-damaged hair, this one’s for you.

Range: Moisture Kick
Schwarzkopf Moisture Kick proved to be true to its name, because the difference that my dry, frizzy and fed-up-of-Bombay-humidity hair felt was incomparable. Finding the right shampoo for curly hair like mine has always been a struggle, The shampoo and the conditioner felt extremely light and easy on the hair and did right what it promised to do. My hair has never felt so soft and stayed that way in this weather. Thankful to the range, my hair got exactly the moisture and care that it deserved.
