Every year, the beauty editors at Allure tests out thousands of beauty products to find the best of the best to present their readers the annual Best of Beauty Awards. From skincare and makeup to hair care and nails, the editors ensure no beauty stone is left unturned. When they announce their annual winners, you can rest assured there are no better products on the market.

We love all things beauty, but here at it should come as no surprise that we pay particularly close attention to the winners in the hair category. This year, four beloved salon hair care products from the L’Oréal portfolio of products won Best Of Beauty Awards in the hair category. If your hair care routine needs a major overhaul, consider stocking your medicine cabinet with these Allure Best of Beauty winners.

If you have dry strands, you’re in luck. The Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner won the Allure Best of Beauty Award for Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry Hair. The magazine’s editors love the sulfate-free system because it makes even their most brittle strands appear smooth. Formulated with quinoa husk and honey, the shampoo and conditioner helps feed dry, dull hair for healthy-looking, softer locks. The shampoo and conditioner are so great, even salon owners can't get enough. 


"I love using the Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner on all types of clients. The scent is so relaxing and the conditioner is hydrating without being heavy. Also the added bonus of it being natural origin gives me, as a salon owner a very positive point of difference to retail to my health and environmentally conscious clients," says Matrix Global Artist Constance Robbins. 


If you’ve recently colored your hair, Allure has just the hair care line for you. Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner won the Best of Beauty Award for Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-Treated Hair. The magazine’s editors credit the shampoo and conditioner for keeping their color-treated hair looking vibrant and glossy. The shampoo and conditioner system is formulated with Redken’s exclusive RCT Protein Complex to treat hair from the root, to the core, to the tip. The Color Extend Magnetic care system with Charged-Attract Complex delivers charged amino-ions that attract to the hair fiber to form a barrier. Hair feels fortified and repaired for a reflective looking finish.


Allure isn't the only one who can't get enough of the award winning duo, Matrix brand ambassador and celebrity stylist, Ryan Pearl can't help but sing its praises. 


"The lightweight feeling of the shampoo and conditioner is suitable for everyone, but don’t let the word 'lightweight' fool you. They really get the job done for a good cleansing of everyday buildup in the hair, and the conditioner softens and hydrates without weighing the hair down," he explains. "I recommend this product to all my clients, even if you don’t have color-treated hair you will benefit from the formula to give your hair natural brightness and shine color-treated or natural."

Next time someone asks you what products you use to make your hair look so great, you can tell them that you only let the absolute best—award winning—products touch your mane.
