SHU UEMURA Art of Hair

Birchbox Breakdown

No matter which kind of mousse we’re talking about, we want it to have a silky-smooth texture and a bunch of volume. No crunchiness allowed. That’s what’s so great about this luxurious, floral-scented styling potion. Just a dab gives any coif a medium hold yet leaves strands shiny and soft to the touch.

How it Works

Best used for fine hair, this lightweight formula contains extract from Japanese cedar bud, which fortifies limp strands. It provides a salon-ready hairdo at a fraction of the cost too, considering its formula protects sensitive hair from heat, humidity and harmful UV rays. Fragrant notes of refreshing flowers such as lily of the valley make its scent nearly impossible to resist.

How to Use

Put a dab of mousse in palms of hands, and massage through damp or towel-dried hair. Comb through strands then blow-dry for straight strands, or scrunch for a curlier coif. When using in thick hair, a little goes a long way. Apply a small amount to damp hair to give strands a boost of bounce.

Good for fine thin hair.

This product works very well on fine thin hair. Does not weigh hair down but creates good volume. The smell is very pleasant too.

Best volumizer by far!

I have yet to be disappointed with a Shu Uemura product thus far. This one is no exception and makes my hair have shine and bounce as well as massive volume. The product is not sticky or greasy and in fact is a tad drying, but the pros far out way that aspect of this product. It seems as if this product will last me a good while as I wash my hair about 3 times a week.

Great lightweight volumizer

I bought this on a whim when I was buying other Shu Uermura products from Birchbox.

I have to say in spite of the expensive price, this is a good product for me. I live in the Southeastern US, so I need a good lightweight volumizing product that won't cause stickiness or weigh my hair down. I got what I hoped for in this product. It's very lightweight -- more than I've experienced from other mousse-type products. It's more than I want to pay, but I'll probably buy it again, because it works. Good stuff.

FYI - my hair is color treated, somewhat fine, with some light natural wave. Requires washing daily.

Perfect for fine hair

I have fine, curly, color treated hair. I use this in conjunction with their texturizing spray for the best looking waves other. My hair is wimpy, but with those two products, it looks great.
