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.

Great Cleansing Shampoo!

I received this sample and my hair felt thoroughly clean without being dry. I personally did not like the citrusy scent of this shampoo.

Really loved this on my very oily hair!!

This lathered well for me tho I always use a lil head and shoulders first, rinse, then use milder shampoo. With my amount of oil, they never lather unless they're very drying. This worked great, was very cleansing, but didn't strip hair which causes mine to break a lot!! My hair is very oily at scalp, dry from mid to ends, and is very thick.

Hard to use

I received this as a sample with purchase and was not really impressed. I read the instructions on how to use and other reveiws and was excited, then I tried it and was let down. I had a very difficult time getting product to foam or lather and I did not feel like I was getting an even distribution and did not feel like it cleaned my hair well. It does have a great fragrance and did make my hair soft and shiny, but was too weighed down and oily looking when used.

Drying

I have very fine dry hair so the description of this product sounded made for me. This shampoo is very drying. I prefer a cowash to this. Ingredient list seemed odd to me so maybe that's why

New to oil shampoo...
Sampled

This was the first time I tried an oil shampoo and boy was I pleasantly surprised! I only put a small amount in my wet hair and it is MORE than enough- there is a lot of lather in such a small bit. It smells great, too. I felt so refreshed after using it, as well. I am still debating buying a full-size, as it is very pricey for a shampoo. Wish it was cheaper. Really terrific product!

Gentle, thorough cleanse
Sampled

I love this particular cleansing oil because it is exactly that! Oil! It doesn't over compensate like most cleansing soaps, which I've found leaves a residue feel on my face. I get a refreshing clean with a soft finish.

Not for fine hair
Sampled

I think this would work much better for someone with thicker or curlier hair. I have A LOT of fine, wavy hair and this seemed to make my conditioner heavier and weighed my waves down a bit. But I think it's the moisture + the clean that girls with more curls and thicker strands might be looking for.
