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.

Good smell ....

I like the scent but I don't think its for my hair type. I have really curly hair and it gets greasy easily. I would love a product that really doesn't make my hair oily.

Didn't think it was anything special, especially for the price.

I used it over the course of 3-4 days, as the sample size was substantial and lasted me a few showers. There wasn't anything to criticize about the product, and if it were even $30 for a bottle I might consider purchasing a full-size package. As is, I'll stick to my current brand, which provides the same results for a much lower price.

Ok

I thought this shampoo was ok. It has a really strong scent which would be pleasant if it wasn't so strong and it didn't really lather the first time around even though I made sure to wet my hair really well. The second time I washed my hair it lathered well. Also I felt like it wasn't anything different from any other shampoo. The price is way too high for it not to be something amazing.

It's definitely not for my hair.
Sampled

I could see where it may work on other type of hair, but mine is medium thick, short and slightly coarse. I also color my hair so that may be a factor on why it turned out the way it did. It kind of made my hair feel slightly straw-like and difficult to comb though when wet. After it dried it wasn't that bad.. but not that great either. My mother also tried this on her very fine hair and it seemed to just tangle it up.

I thought this shampoo should be really great given the price but felt it was no better than any other shampoo. The smell was bland and it didn't leave my hair shiny. Will not purchase.

Not worth the money!

When I first read about this product and its reviews I was so excited to try! For the price I expected it to be a miracle in a bottle, but alas it was not. The smell is fantastic but this cleanser has salicylic acid in it and gave me dandruff like I have never seen. I am used to using this ingredient on my acne, not my hair! Not happy at all. If you have sensitive skin- beware of this product.

not sure what this hype was about
Purchased

So I really wanted to love this shampoo. It smelled amazing and I was wanting to use it the right way with a little bit on the scalp. I couldn't help but feel like my hair wasn't getting clean due to the lack of sudz! So I think I used up too much in the process to wash my hair but it was just very beyond what I was used to experiencing in a shampoo. I also felt like the shampoo would only go to a small area then not do work to spread well since it didn't lather.
