Keune Haircosmetics also has a new launch: its Sun Care Line, which protects your hair against damage from the sun, chlorine and sea water.

Bc Bonacure uses a special aphinity technology that goes straight into the damaged part of the hair, leaving the rest of it unscathed. This new technology not only actively strengthens and regenerates damaged hair, but also revitalises heavily damaged, bleached or stressed hair.

Winnie Loo, creative ambassador, Schwarzkopf Professional, says: The advanced formula in the Bc Bonacure range has professional and customised hair solutions to satisfy the individual hair needs of the end consumer.
