Schwarzkopf Professional has released COLOUR ALCHEMY, inspired by colors found in nature but designed to change color based on temperature.

The new collection allows for the creation of instant, holographic effects on hair.

The shades in the COLOUR ALCHEMY collection are designed to replicate visual effects of natural color phenomenon found  in nature. Each shade scatters the light in a range of kaleidoscopic hues, which responds to temperature.

The effects do not require pre-lightening or bleaching treatment, even on the darkest hair base. So these unique colors can be achieved with no damage to the hair. 

The five shades in the collection include:


  • Visible applied color: none 
  • Prismatic color change: solar orange, jasmine green, lapis blue 
  • Suitable for bases: 1-3
