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.

Made my hair feel great!

I can't wait to buy this product. It did everything it said it would in the description. My hair has never felt better.

Love it
Purchased

It is pricey, but works so well with my frizzy, curly hair to me it's worth it. I never really bothered with samples that are not resealable but felt compelled to try it anyway. Definitely happy that I did. The smell is a nice plus too.
I don't see people with having fine, or straight greasy hair getting much use out of it, considering it is oil-based.

money well spent
Purchased

Yes this stuff is pricey but I watched the product video Birchbox made for it and they said it was super concentrated so for 400ml of a super concentrated shampoo I just went for it. They were totally right. This stuff is thick! I have hair down to my lower back and it's extremely thick and course. I only used a pump and a half. I concentrated on my scalp as opposed to my whole head of hair. It's so concentrated that the runoff that went through the length of my hair was enough to cleanse my hair thoroughly. I paired it with the conditioner from this line that just came out and of course the hair oil and it looks and feels amazing!!! Totally worth the money in my opinion! My hair is shiny, sleek, airy, and manageable. This line of products is definitely my new HG hair product routine!

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.

Like it but not enough to drop 55$

I finally used this product today. I really enjoyed the way it smelled and liked the way it lathered and washed my hair. My hair felt soft and light weight all day. Just put it up to get it out of my face and it still feels soft. Not greasy at all. The price is a bit too much for my liking though.

Weighed my hair down

The product smelled nice and had a very thick, oily consistancy. The issue I had with the product is that it seemed to weigh my hair down and remove any life it originally had. My hair was very smooth and nourished, just heavy.

Good product, not great

I liked this product, the sample was hard to re-seal so I only used once. My hair is pretty fine so it gets greasy easily so I probably will not be purchasing this product because of the oil base. I wasn't wowed by it.

Nice, but...

I'm always interested in trying hair products-my hair is naturally curly but with a lot of frizz, so I normally blow dry and then curl/straighten it with a curling iron and flat iron-I always like to try new things that might improve the texture of it, even if only temporary. This lathered well, smelled nice, and distributed pretty evenly for me, and left my hair feeling very bouncy-not weighed down at all. My hair is normally crazy if I don't use a conditioner but this actually reduced the frizz. It would have been nice to get a conditioner or something to try with it, though-to get the full effect of this product line. That might've made a bigger difference in my hair and made me more willing to pay the huge price tag for the product.

Not too Shabby!

I received this sample in my august box! The smell is incredible absolutely loved it!! And it made my hair super soft too! BUT! On a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being very lathery I would give it a 2 1/2-3. In order for me to feel like my hair is being clean it must be lathery. But other than that I thought it was ok!
