SHU UEMURA Art of Hair

Birchbox Breakdown

Color-treated hair needs all the help it can get to stay healthy and true-to-hue. This color-protecting conditioner from luxe brand Shu Uemura delivers a hefty dose of TLC, starting with its high concentration of musk rose oil. The nourishing formula intensifies the vibrancy of your color while also giving strands a shiny finish. Even if you haven’t colored your hair, you can use it to get a soft, sleek mane.

How it Works

Designed for daily use, this creamy conditioner is rich in musk rose oil, a wonder ingredient originally from Asia. Renowned for its protective properties, musk rose oil is high in vitamin A and fatty acids. It helps prevents oxidation, so your color will stay true-to-hue and won’t turn brassy—even if you spend a week at the beach.

How to Use

After shampooing, massage a small amount of conditioner into hair, concentrating on the mid-lengths and ends. Rinse with warm water.

Love it

Yes, it's expensive. And yes it does what it says. My hair is very thick and coarse. I found my hair had to be very very wet before applying the shampoo or it wouldn't create enough suds. The conditioner is wonderful; nice and light going on, which I prefer. My hair color stays true and has wonderful shine.

Amazing!

Paired with the shampoo, I cannot get enough of this duo! The shine is amazing and the scent is heavenly. Wish I could use this every day but it's a little too pricey. I love it for special occasions!

This is my favorite conditioner

I have textured, color treated, wavy hair. A part of me wondered if I could ever justify such a high end conditioner, but the answer is yes. It seriously moisturizes without weighing down. Don't be confused because it isn't super thick, but it a great balance of conditioning without flattening.

Disappointed

The smell on this was a very distant rose, which would be good for those who do not like heavily scented hair products. The conditioner was just okay. It really did not add much to my hair shine. Will not be purchasing this one.

Lovely

I use this paired with the Cleaning Oil Shampoo and I love it. It smells lovely and is great for my color treated hair. It keeps my hair smooth and frizz free.

I have long color treated hair that needs bleach to lift the color. If your hair isn't terribly damaged or if you don't use bleach to achieve whatever color you have, this may be a bit pricey.

High price, poor quality

I read reviews on this that were all excellent. I purchased and am so disappointed. I paid a small fortune for a product I would not pay $10 for. I got all 3 products in this line.

I love everything about this conditioner!

I love everything about this conditioner! The smell is wonderful and it gives my chronically color treated hair the perfect about of conditioning. The price is out there but I am so glad I treated myself by getting this. I recommend it to anyone with color treated hair.
