Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Growth Shampoo Review

Schwarzkopf Bonacure Hair Therapy Amino Cell Rebuild Hair Growth Shampoo

Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Growth Shampoo
As I told you earlier in my previous articles about hair care that I have medium length, straight, and thin silky hair. As a part of my hair care regime I massage with coconut and almond oil mixture and shampoo it the other day. Once in two weeks I apply a homemade hair mask (that could be either henna or sour curd with some essential oils). I never use conditioners as they make my hair oily the very next day of hair wash. Once when I went to have my hair cut the salon professional suggested me to use a shampoo which help in adding volume and bounce to thinning hair. The shampoo was from the most talked and advertised brand by most of the high end salons after L’oreal and other such brands. This shampoo claimed to be specifically for Thinning hair and I will be reviewing it here.

The product being reviewed here is Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Growth (daily maintenance regime) Shampoo for thinning hair. A long name or rather I would say a short description itself.. :)

What the company claims about the product?
There was nothing written on the bottle about the product except a brief description. I am writing whatever is mentioned on their site about the Bonacure Hairtherapy Amino Cell Rebuild.

My experience with Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Growth Shampoo

I am quite confused about what to say. This is the first product which I have used from some professional series which are otherwise meant specifically salon use only. This is having a clear gel consistency. I used it for my oiled hair or I should say heavily oiled hair and it did not lather. I had to increase the quantity of the shampoo for every rinse but it still did not lather. I was pretty disappointed. I satisfied myself by the thought that it might not work well for oiled hair. Next time I did not oil my hair before shampooing and yes it did lather not that foamy but yes it lathered quite well and cleaned my hair effectively. From that I got a lesson that I should use it when I don’t have time to oil my hair and have to wash them on an urgent basis. It did made my hair soft and left them with a mild yet nice fragrance. But again I was disappointed as it made my hair oily the very next day leaving them suitable for a pony tail only. Alas! I finally gave that shampoo to my brother in law. He happily used it and now has become an avid user of shampoos from Schwarzkopf. I am still wondering why? He says that this is the best range of shampoos and hair care products he has used so far and uses some other variant from the same range.

Pros of Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Growth Shampoo

Made my hair soft
The fragrance was good and lingered on for the whole day.

Cons of Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Growth Shampoo

Not at all effective for oily hair
Makes the hair oily the very next day only
Price is on the higher side as per the performance

Final Verdict: I will not at all buy this shampoo again. This might work well for others but a big no-no for me.

I use the Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Hairtherapy Color Save Sulfate-Free Shampoo that has been recommended to me after my Keratine treatment & I am loving it…..I do have to shampoo every alternate day but I guess that’s never been a problem.

Nice review

It doesn’t lather because it has Sodium Laureth Sulphate(SLES) which is less harmful than Sodium Lauryl Sulphate(SLS) which lathers a lot. Mind you I said “less harmful”, both are harmful, SLS is more harmful for hair than SLES. That is why I usually prefer all organic shampoos and soaps. These chemicals have bad long term effects.

Hi,

The problem is that foreign brands like Schwarzkopf are not meant for indian hair, reason being that out hair is more oily (we oil them more regularly) compared to those of women from other origin.. thanks to the climate and also our hair tends to get dirty more frequently coz of all the pollution and dust.

As somebody has mentioned above Sodium Lauryl Sulphate(SLS) is the agent (sort of detergent used in shampoos) that causes the shampoo to lather.. it is the cleansing agent whereas Sodium Laureth Sulphate(SLES) is milder version of that. Since we are used to shampoos that lather and clean, this one is milder i suppose leaving the user dissatisfied.

I’d suggest shampoos are just meant to clean ur hair, not to repair them, or stop the hairfall.. for all that there is oil – almond, coconut and others.. and most imp of all good diet!

I have used this shampoo on my beautician’s recommendation. Its a disaster to my hair. I lost too mail hairs and waste of money. I’ll never ever go with this again.
