To maximize the effects of this luxurious mask, wash your hair with SHU UEMURA Art of Hair’s accompanying Moisture Velvet Shampoo.

SHU UEMURA Art of Hair

Birchbox Breakdown

The name should give you a clue: this deep-conditioning hair mask doesn’t just soften your strands—it gives them a total overhaul. Designed to be used at least once a week, it works to replenish lost moisture and reverse all kinds of hair damage. You’ll be glad to know that it’s great for every hair texture, from baby thin to super thick. Use it weekly for dramatically softer, smoother strands.

How it Works

Prized in Japan, camellia oil supercharges this moisturizing treatment with its calming fragrance and nourishing power. It’s packed with essential lipids that absorb rapidly into hair, softening and repairing rough, brittle strands.

How to Use

Apply to clean, freshly shampooed hair at least once a week if your hair is thin or as often as once a day if you have thick locks. Leave on for five to ten minutes and rinse with warm water.

Best Masque

I have fine highlighted hair. This makes my so shiny. Very moisturizing but not weighed downed. I use twice a week. Does not build up or leave residue.

Shu Uemura Art of Hair Moisture Velvet nourishing Treatment

I have over colored, over highlighted, over blow dryed, over flat ironed, over curled, coarse hair that tends to stay on the dry side. I received a sample of the Shu Uemura products in my birchbox last year and after spending thousands of dollars over my lifetime looking for a hair product line that works for me, I have finally found it. It is definitely pricey, but if you add up the amount I spend on other products that do not work, it really is cheaper. This is an excellent line for dry hair. It has done for my hair what no other did. My only regret is that it is no longer sold in the US so thank goodness I can order it from Birchbox. Give it a try. You won't regret it!!

Amazing!

Amazing product! Made my hair instantly silky. Smells great too! Can't wait to use it again. It costs a lot but when you consider treatments like this in a salon its totally worth it.

Great deep conditioner

This conditioner is amazing - I paired it with the Shu Uemura moisture velvet shampoo, and I swear my hair felt healthier after that wash-and-condition than it has in years. It's a bit pricey, but I intend to make it last, and it's worth it for not having to get my hair trimmed more than a couple of times a year!

I love this stuff!

I recieved this as a sample and loved it so much I bought it. It took me a couple of months to justify the cost to myself but it was worth it. I do wish the container was different... I'm always worried it will tip over and spill or will fill with water in the shower.

AHHHHHMAZING!

I purchased several Shu Uemura products from Birchbox recently and this was by far my favorite. My hair felt like someone elses hair after I washed with this. I have coarse frizzy hair and after, my hair was soft, shiny, and smooth. I highly recommend the shampoo as well!

Good but spendy.

I loved how this made my hair feel. It is so thick and creamy. Downside is the price tag and I wish they would put it in a pump bottle.

So good!

I love how this treatment leaves my hair feeling. I have dry, wavy hair that is especially dry at the ends but I dont want to chop it off and lose the length. I use this once a week and it leaves my hair silky smooth. Its expensive, but worth it and will last for a while!

A MUST BUY

Best hair product that I have used in a long time. Product smells great and works wonders on dry hair that is damaged from heat. Already have purchased from Birchbox!

WORKS.

I have long, thick, coarse hair which has a tendency to get dry and frizzy. Not only did this smell divine, but it is THE BEST treatment I have ever tried. I need to save up some Birchbox points to buy a full size...or maybe put it on my Christmas list! I would give it 5 stars if the price were a little less.
