On the lookout for a new shampoo? The 15th annual IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement lists the best beauty launches of the last year, in partnership with Boots. The awards are independently judged by Ireland’s leading doctors, dermatologists, beauty professionals, make-up artists, hair experts and influencers.
IMAGE contributing editor Melanie Morris says, “I hope we’ve included some familiar favourites here, along with some future heroes you’ll consider valuable new additions to your beauty bag. We’ve also made sure to pick up plenty of insider pro tips from our expert judging panel and have shared the best with you in the IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement.”
Check out the six winning shampoos chosen by David Cashman, art director at Reds hair salon; Darren Kennedy, TV presenter and writer; Michael Leong, freelance hairstylist at michaelleong.com; and Sharon Sheehan, artistic director at AC Pure.
Redken Clean Maniac Micellar Clean Touch Shampoo, €17.50
“This gives the hair a really good cleanse. Best on natural hair, as it might be a bit hard on coloured hair. It’s also great for post-spa hair, or if you get a build-up of product like hair wax, so it’s great for men’s hair. One shampoo would do it. It’s also silicone and sulfate free.”
– Michael Leong
Phyto Phytokeratine Extreme Exceptional Shampoo, €18
“This restored the perfect amount of moisture, felt good on the scalp and rejuvenated the hair. I would recommend it for drying, thinning hair.”
– Sharon Sheehan
Mane N’ Tail Colour Protect Shampoo, €10
“You’re left with really full-bodied hair. It’s suitable for all hair types and lengths and really cleanses the hair and leaves it with body and moisture. Ten out of ten.”
– Sharon Sheehan
John Frieda Radiant Red Boosting Shampoo, €7.99
“This left absolutely no residue. my hair felt light and manageable after use.”
– Darren Kennedy
Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Uplift Shampoo, €21
“This has a really nice consistency and was a pleasure to use.”
– Darren Kennedy
L’Oreal Professional Serie Expert Inforcer B6 Biotin Shampoo, €14
“This is great for longer hair because it protects against breakage. It’s targeted to split ends and leaves you with smooth rather than coarse ends. It’s also great for fragile or coloured hair.”
– Micheal Leong
