Micellar water. It’s the backstage beauty secret of everyone from the world’s top make-up artists to the famous faces they paint, with a celebrity fan base ranging from Victoria Beckham to Gwyneth Paltrow.
What makes the rinse-free cleanser so insanely popular? Not only does it instantly remove make-up, it does so gently and effectively, without stripping the skin and without the need for scrubbing. See also: rinse-free.
So you can imagine our reaction when micellar water for your hair landed on our desks this week. Redken have prised micellar technology from the skincare realm’s clutches and applied it to one genius hair product: micellar shampoo.
Free from your usual shampoo suspects, sulphates and silicone, the new Redken Clean Maniac Micellar Clean Touch Shampoo harnesses micellar particles to act like magnets for oil and product build-up, without stripping hair of its natural oils so that it stays nice and shiny. It’s designed to be used like you would a normal shampoo, followed by conditioner, either daily or every now and then.
