SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo

We’re hesitant to call this luxurious cleansing oil a shampoo—its powers go far beyond cleansing. Perfect for all hair types and textures, the oil-to-foam formula binds with the grease and product buildup on your scalp before gently whisking them away. At the same time, it respects your hair’s natural oils, so your strands never feel dry or stripped. Finally, it adds bounce and body to your locks while leaving behind a calming yuzu citrus scent. All in all, it’s a true superhero product.

Not impressed

I don't tend to have a lot of oil or grease in my hair, but I just didn't feel like my hair was really clean after using this product. It felt coarse and harder to manage, and I didn't see any noticeable changes in the look of my hair when dry. Maybe more use leads to better results.

A fail for me

I would never pay this much for a shampoo. Even if it did work, that being said, for me, It just didn't. My hair is thick, and get's greasy/oily every night. This added oil, and made me wash it again. Gross.

VERY strong perfume scent
Sampled

I'm not a fan of heavily perfumed things, especially shampoo. I like my hair to smell clean, not like I dipped it in a bucket of perfume. Too much perfume smells like chemicals. Not for me

Not great

I thought I would try this after I got a sample. It was not impressive at all, especially for the crazy price. It really dried out my hair and I ended up hating it and hating that I spent so much on it.

This stuff left my hair like a rats nest and I'd like to call it something else!!

Don't even think of using this without a conditioner...in fact I don't know why the sample didn't come with a conditioner. This has been on my wish list for a very long time, the marketing totally sucked me in. A friend kindly gave me not one, but two samples. Trash can!! I have long, thick very healthy hair. I usually use no-poo but often switch up with high quality shampoo and often don't even need to use the matching shampoo because my hair is so healthy. As soon as I put this shampoo in my hair it seemed to contract up on to my head...my very long hair suddenly seemed like a knotted up rug on top of my head. Tried to gently ease out the tangles under the running warm water for several minutes and was starting to panic because the tangles WOULD NOT BUDGE!! Had to get out the big guns conditioner that I use maybe once a year, leave it on for 20 minutes and then very gently ease out the tangles. Worst stuff I've ever used on my hair and now as its air drying it still feels funky. Not happy She Uemera, not happy. So glad I didn't fork over the $$$.

Not worth it
Sampled

I'm sulfate free, but this product is not. I'm pretty sure my hair was actually worse after using this product. It wasn't as shiny or as soft as usual... I'm also not a fan of the scent.

Not for me

thought this shampoo was very drying actually – my scalp is completely flaking and itchy. I washed my hair at night and my hair did look nice for a few hours (aside from the flaky scalp), but when I woke up the next morning, it look limp and weighed down. This shampoo is oddly drying and weighed down at the same time, I wouldn’t use it again if someone gave it to me for free. It has a nice fragrance, but that is about all it has going for it.
