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.

Give it a shot

I was a little nervous about the whole cleansing oil thing but my stylist just recommended I give it a try since it's more gentle than normal shampoo so when I got it in this months box I was pretty excited. The sample is HUGE, no foil packet here! It left my hair soft and manageable and definitely not oily and heavy which was my fear.

A nice smoother.

My hair tends to be frizzy and full of fly aways. This tended to smooth but it took a lot for me to feel "clean."

Not for my hair type.

It was okay, but not very moisturizing for my coily hair.

Pricey
Purchased

Not sure this is worth the price. I bought the full bottle without testing it first after reading so many great reviews both on birchbox and intothegloss. It has a lovely scent, and doesn't strip my frizzy/wavy hair, but I'm not sure it's worth the hype of price. It didn't do anything special, and I still needed a protector oil and de-frizz serum after the shower. Maybe it would be better if it was only used once or twice a week.

Best shampoo for fine & delicate hair
Purchased

I have had a great conditioner for many years BUT a terrific shampoo that does not leave my hair feeling "stripped" dry has eluded me. I bought this product because of the reviews and I am very happy with it. It leaves my hair feeling both clean and soft with no weight (I have very fine hair). I think that this is the first shampoo I have ever used that really performs the way it claims to perform. Well worth the money.

LOVE this stuff, officially a staple

I've got finer hair but tons of it, I don't wash everyday so usually my hair is pretty dirty by the time I get to it. This stuff works sort of like how an oil cleanser does for your face. Oil fights oil, but without stripping and drying, so it lathers nicely but leaves my scalp feeling clean and refreshed but not parched. Also, my hair looks awesome with this stuff, it's lighter with more volume, bouncier and shinier. This has converted me to a pretty loyal Shu Uemura customer, as I now use only their products for shampooing and conditioning.

It's a miracle!!!!

I've used this shampoo for a couple of years and it's amazing!!!!! Before I switched, I had a really dry and irritated scalp and now my scalp is really healthy and my hair looks super healthy too. The price may seem steep, but you don't need to use a lot with each wash. I have yet to find a shampoo that leaves my hair feeling and looking so clean.

best shampoo ever

I renowned this as a gift. Is hesitant to try it because I have been a cleansing conditioner girl for close to ten years.I had come to a point we're lather scares me. But I never turn down an opportunity to try a luxury product. IM SO GLAD I DID. the one thing I never liked about cleansing conditioners(and I've tried them ALL) was never feeling my hair was completely clean. But having coarse thick hair, I figured it was something I would love with to have soft, manageable, shiny hair. Not any more. This this your hair clean with ALL THE BENEFITS of a cleansing conditioner. SOLD.

Silky

My hair felt very silky after use. I wish I had not used conditioner to get a real sense of how it would make my hair feel. Nice to try!

I WILL ONLY USE THIS SHAMPOO
Purchased

I have been searching for years for the perfect shampoo. I have very long, thick, streight healthy hair. My hair is my thing. I pay alot attention to it and take very good care ot it. I got this as a sample from a promotion at the Bar Method Soho location and fell inlove. What i love is that it keeps my hair clean (can go longer between washes) and it keeps it light and fluffy. I follow with the prime plenish conditioner. This is the best combo. I have been using it for 2 years now. Yes the price is very high but it last a long time even with thick hair half way down my back. A little goes a long way with this shampoo. You need less than you think. It does not lather much which may think you need more...but you dont.
