REVIEW Schwarzkopf Bonacure Oil Rose Oil Treatment
Until ‘Sniff-O-Internet‘ is invented, I can’t tell you how gorgeous this product smells. I love the scent of roses, but not the sickly, artificial fragrances you find in so many so-called ‘rose scented’ products.
Bonacure Oil Miracle Rose Oil Treatment is a pampering hair and scalp treatment for normal to dry hair types. Although, I would add fine, mature hair, to that description.
Specially formulated to deeply nourish and soften the hair whilst pampering the scalp, Miracle Rose Oil Treatment helps to increase shine and improve manageability. Deeply nourishing all hair types and soothing sensitive scalps,
Miracle Rose Oil Treatment is enriched with two precious Rose Oils including Rose Hip and Damascus Rose which work harmoniously to purify, soothe and moisturise whilst enveloping the hair in an aromatic fragrance.
HOW TO USE
Pour a few drops into the palm, rub and massage throughout lengths and ends. When application on hair is completed, pour a few extra drops on your finger tips and gently massage over the scalp.
Leave to process for 5 to 10 minutes. At the end of the processing time, add warm water, emulsify and rinse out the oil.
Apply 1-2 drops to fingertips and gently massage over the scalp.
Apply along lengths to nourish hair and increase shine and manageability.
My hairdresser used it on my fine flyaway hair and I expected my hair to go greasy and limp, but it looked good for three days. I went online and found the product and I use it all the time. They call it miracle oil and that’s just what it is. My hair is like silk.
My hair has very oily roots, but very dry ends – nightmare! This oil is light enough that it can be used on the hair and the scalp without looking greasy. It smells fantastic and makes my hair feel really soft.
I used this product on holiday, massaging it into dry hair before swimming and lounging around the pool to counter the damaging effects of sun and swimming. When I washed and dried my hair it left it beautifully soft and shiny.
A little massaged into the ends acts as a great finishing product too and left my hair smelling gorgeous. A little goes a long way and I definitely recommend it.
I’ve got an awful lot of shine enhancing serums, but the difference here is that the delicate rose fragrance wafts around you when your hair swishes about.
A word of warning though, if you sniff the bottle, it does smell quite cloying, even on your fingers the smell is strong, but once on your hair, it dies down to a delicate whiff of natural rose.
That said, I actually use this oil more as a scalp treatment I don’t rinse out. That should tell you just how light this oil is. The one thing none of us (especially those of us with fine hair) want, is greasy roots. A gentle massage into the roots before I apply other products, and I’m done.
THE ‘PERHAPS NOT SO GOOD’ PART
As well as the beneficial rose oils, this oil does contain Cyclomethicone and Dimethiconol – these are silicones that lie on top of hair strands to give the appearance of silky, shiny hair.
ISLE OF ROSES
I came across Miracle Oil because I was looking for a ‘stop gap’ alternative to Isle of Roses which featured in Vogue last September and was impossible to find online. It’s fair to say Isle of Roses Rose Hair Oil is a purer product with a list of recognisable ingredients:
Bulgarian Damask Rose, Musk Rose, Evening Primrose, Incan Peanut, Grape Seed, Safflower. Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera.
The price is a staggering £42.00 for a mere 30ml of oil, but, we all know, that’s because it takes 50 trillion roses petals to make one drop of oil (something like that).
Miracle Rose Oil is no dupe for Isle of Roses but for now, if you’re looking to treat your hair or scalp with a light, rose scented oil, it’s not a bad compromise.
