Product Review: Schwarzkopf - Bonacure Color Save Shampoo
Let's start off with my hair type first. I dyed my hair for the first time in grade 7 and I don't remember having nice and shiny hair since then. Well, I think my hair was never silky and shiny to begin with, like some of my friends who are born with this gift... I dye my hair on average 2-3 times a year. Recently I've dyed it burgundy using a $3 hair dye from Walmart :) haha I think the brand was Loreal ...? I can't recall. As you may already know, red always tends to fade to brown. Therefore, I wanted to invest in a good shampoo that would prolong the color. At the same time, I was looking for a shampoo that could improve the condition of my hair, make it appear less frizzy and dry. My hair is alwayssss frizzy, puffy and dry right after I wash my hair. It usually gets a lot better when I wake up in the morning though. (Still pretty bad) I did a little research online and I found out that sulfate in shampoo dies out your hair. However, I think sulfate is what makes the shampoo bubble, where you can work your hair into a big lather.
I came across this product online and it said sulfate free. Immediately I thought of what I read online. Also, Schwarzkopf is a prestigious brand so I thought I would give it a try.
As expected, this product is like most of the organic shampoos in the market. It's extremely hard to create a big lather with it. You still CAN, but there's a way. First you put some on your hand and spread it around your scalp. Then gradually add some water to your hair on different parts of your scalp and rub in circular motion. It takes a little more work than regular shampoo.
It for sure didnt make my hair as frizzy as before and my scalp feels very comfortable afterwards. As far as color preservation, I cannot say much right now since I've used it for less than a week. I believe it will help though because it doesn't contain sulfate, which means less chemical on the hair...
I would repurchase this product :)
