Review: The New Schwarzkopf Gliss + GIVEAWAY

The New Schwarzkopf Gliss

This year was a big one for Schwarzkopf with the iconic brand turning a massive 120 years! To have such incredible staying power, Schwarzkopf must be doing something right especially in an industry where competition is fierce. They really stand apart from the rest and are a trend-setter in the industry when it comes to creativity, style and superior innovation. 

“120 years of not only being in business, but also being the leaders in cutting-edge research and development, is an incredible achievement for any haircare brand” says Henkel Business Unit Manager, Natalie Van Heerden. But she also points out that “you are only as good as your last innovation” and this year is no exception for Schwarzkopf. That’s why innovation is at the forefront for Schwarzkopf and update their product formulations every two to three years to ensure that only the very best is being offered to the consumer.

What I loved most about Schwarzkopf’s 120 year celebration was the launch of their #createyourownstyle campaign which commemorates 120 years of hair passion, creativity and individuality. Creativity is a dynamic element of the brand’s DNA, and key in celebrating 120 years of standout style. Schwarzkopf caters for everyone when it comes to hair care; from cool to nonchalant, from the modern to the subtly elegant, everyone has their own style and there’s a new look to  fit every personality!

Schwarzkopf launched their new Gliss Intense Therapy with OmegaPlex which uses revolutionary Keratin bonding technology to repair the delicate bonds of the hair, repairing from within, giving you healthier, more resilient hair. The new range of shampoo, conditioner and masks focuses on damaged hair as a result of flat ironing and heat styling and reconstructs the hair from deep within to leave it stronger, healthier and more manageable.

While I have quite a lot of hair, it is really thin and fine and knots easily which results in a fair amount of breakage. It’s quite wavy and gets pretty wild and thanks to years of highlighting, it has a tendency to go frizzy and dry. I’ve been using Gliss Intense Therapy with OmegaPlex for a few weeks now and I’m really enjoying how my hair feels after using it. I’ve noticed a definite improvement in the frizziness and it’s a lot softer and shinier. As I’m still keeping my showers short (Cape Town, don’t forget we still have water restrictions!) I alternate between using leave-in conditioner and ‘normal’ conditioner so I haven’t used the Gliss Intense Therapy conditioner as much as the shampoo but I am still impressed with how my hair feels. It also has a lovely, fresh fragrance that isn’t too over powering but I can still smell the freshness the next morning.

Included in this range is the Gliss Intense Therapy Structure Repair Treatment which is an indulgent one-minute intensive treatment that  deeply nourishes your hair while working to reconstruct broken bonds within the inner hair structure to stabilise and repair hair from within. This is great when your hair really needs a boost and works wonders on those split ends. 

The new range of Gliss Intense Therapy products are available from all leading retailers including Clicks, Pick n Pay, Dischem and Checkers.

Gliss Intense Therapy with Omegaplex  Shampoo R52,99 for 250ml and R69,99 for 400ml

  1. I would love to try this out, I have been to 2 dischem stores and Clicks and haven’t found stock. My hair is feeling like straw after the summer holidays with kids, lots of salty sea has dried out my hair.

  2. Loved reading this post
