If today I was asked what the haircare cosmetics world of Miriam Quevedo brings to the mix, I would categorically reply: an undisputed mouthful of health and youth for the hair. Nine years forming part of her legion of fans, using her cosmetics on a daily basis, I can attest that this is confirmed.
Miriam Quevedo has added a new dimension to haircare cosmetics via highly concentrated formulas with more than 35 active ingredients, advanced technology and a clean beauty philosophy in every one of her decisions. In summary, in my opinion it’s haircare cosmetics are of the highest quality without any catches nor gimmicks with obvious results.
Today I want to present her new 100% vegan collection, Black Baccara Haircare, to you which is formulated with her exclusive concentrate Black Baccara Rose Youth and fresh rose stem cells, an anti-ageing haircare range that’s been designed to protect the hair and the scalp from premature ageing caused by the external aggressions of our lifestyle and modern life.
Black Baccara Haircare combines the best of nature and science to compensate for the irregularities of Circadian rhythms, stimulating the growth of the hair and repairing the damage in the hair fibres, thus restoring all of their strength and elasticity. It is a perfect line for those who wish to have long and shiny hair, who suffer from hair loss, or have a tendency to have dull, weak and brittle hair, because the formulation of the line boosts the healthy growth of the hair and its optimum anchorage, preventing the tell-tale alterations in the biological clock that can make it difficult or reduce its growth phase. “The hair grows back stronger, maintaining and prolonging its growth phase (anagen) and preserving its amount, as well as the quality of the hair follicle.”
The 4 wonderful active ingredients that make Black Baccara Haircare a cult beauty line are:
Black Baccara Rose Youth Concentrate: An innovative and exclusive concentrate designed to protect and defend the cells from the alterations of the hair’s growth cycle caused by our lifestyle and environmental factors, ensuring healthy growth and preventing premature ageing.
Fresh Rose Stem Cells: Extracted from the alpine rose via biotechnology, this highly resistant plant with antioxidant and anti-free radical properties, contains special and metabolic epigenetics that preserve the function of the stem cells of the follicle, thus boosting its growth.
Growth Factors: They act straight from the heart of the pilose follicle to prevent and stop the fallout, favouring its anchorage and stimulating its growth.
Multi-Bond Filler: It deeply penetrates the cortex, thus strengthening the hair follicle from the inside out at triple strength, restoring the original levels of resistance and improving the movement of the hair damaged by chemical, thermal, environmental and mechanic ageing.
The collection includes 5 cosmetics:
Hair Multiplying Shampoo. This treatment shampoo which increases the cycle of the growth, strengthens and adds thickness to the hair. It’s reinforced with Multi-Bond Filler, it repairs and generates new bonds to revert the damage to hair fibres caused by chemical, thermal, environmental or mechanical ageing. In addition, it optimises the natural moisturising factors (or NMF) and it balances the microflora, visibly improving the health of the hair. The Black Baccara Rose Youth concentrate, and the Fresh Rose Stem Cells prevent the alterations from growth of the hair caused by environment and lifestyle.
Hair Multiplying Mask. This mask boosts the growth cycle and strengthens its roots, at the same time as repairing and creating new bonds to reverse the damage of the hair fibre. It works from the follicle to the fibre, offering up superior rejuvenation, strength and hydration to achieve healthier, shinier hair with a renewed texture that is frizz-free.
Hair Multiplying Serum. This serum improves the strength and elasticity of the hair by working at a molecular level to repair the broken hair bonds from the inside of the cortex and to revert the damage done to the hair fibre. It forms a protective film in the cuticle so that this can be protected from thermal damage, reducing breakages and getting rid of frizz.
Bond Rejuvenating Luxe Cure. It’s an ultraconcentrated treatment that’s reinforced with vegan keratin and Multi-bond Strengthener to repair and reconstruct the internal structure of the hair fibre. A shock treatment made from vitamins, minerals, botanical products and pure 24K gold, which is suitable for restoring vitality, shine and protection against oxidative stress and contamination. It fills in and restores the structures of the damaged areas. I recommend you take a look at this link to see how it works.
Hair Multiplying Scalp Concentrate + Pre-Treatment Exfoliator. It is an intensive treatment that stimulates hair growth from the roots. Enriched with growth factors that act from the heart of the follicle, this exclusive two-step protocol includes a pre exfoliator to prepare the hair and remove toxins, impurities and dead skin cells.
Aimed at the different hair growth regulators, including the epigenetics, this treatment prevents and reverts the hair ageing process, while boosting its growth, thickness and roots. With anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and regulatory properties of the sebum, the active ingredients that contain its formula are working to restore the natural balance of the hair, hydrate and reduce irritation. The micellar water and active organic carbon help to detox and energise, while the Moringa peptide protects against pollution and harmful UV rays.

I don’t want to sign off without once again pointing out that Miriam Quevedo is going for the philosophy of “clean beauty” in every one of its creations. The company has decided to reduce the amount of plastic that it uses, exclusively limiting it to recyclable or sustainable sources. The Black Baccara Haircare is made with I’m GreenTM polyethylene, a plastic made from sugar cane that helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is also 100% recyclable.
The world of beauty and personal healthcare is experiencing its own revolution. We want cleaner and better cosmetics. We form part of a movement that promotes wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle, and Miriam Quevedo forms part of that.
