The top five haircare products this year!
In the fifth of a weeklong series, we bring you a list of products that won out in the haircare category at the Vogue Beauty Awards 2012.
Over 1,100 products were rigorously scrutinised and personally tested by an expert panel of judges, and in the following pages, we bring you the 12 makeup selections that emerged winners.
Best shampoo for normal hair
In this category, haircare giant Schwarzkopf's Professional BC Bonacure Moisture Kick Shampoo emerged the winner. The product promises to infuse your tresses with much-needed moisture and shine.
A 250 ml bottle will set you back about Rs 540.

Best conditioner for normal hair
Aiming to keep hair soft, lustrous and tangle-free, the Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Conditioner was voted the best in its category.
At about Rs 1,275 for 250 ml, though, it's rather a pricey product.

Best shampoo for coloured or damaged hair
If you're suffering from stressed tresses, Vogue recommends the Kerastase Reflection Bain Chroma Riche Shampoo -- it's supposed to lock in moisture, provide UV protection and provide vitamins.
A 250 ml bottle of this shampoo will cost you approximately Rs 1,500.

Best conditioner for coloured or damaged hair
Kerastase also swept the conditioner title for damaged hair -- its Reflection Chroma Riche Luminous Softening Treatment Masque is supposed to work wonders.
However, miracles don't come cheap, so expect to be set back by Rs 3,800 for a 500 ml jar!

Best hair mask/deep conditioner
And finally, if you want to provide a deep nourishing treatment to your mane, the magazine suggests you do it with The Body Shop Rainforest Radiance Hair Butter.
A 200 ml pot is priced at about Rs 900, which is a far cheaper alternative than many other products that promise the same results.
