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 Product!

My hair can be generally pretty dry. It has been colored and I often skip conditioning. I think this product was great because it looked and felt like I had used conditioner. My hair was soft and shiny. It is something that could easily simplify your beauty routine.

Awesome smell! Normal Shampoo

So the scent of this shampoo was AWESOME and fairly long lasting - however, like many other have commented, I did't find the shampoo to be that different than any of my other shampoos. It did feel a bit cleaner but my hair usually feels that way the first time after I switch shampoos.

I love cleansing oils but....

I have used Shu's facial cleansing oils for years but really didn't care for the shampoo. The scent was VERY light and my hair never really felt clean no matter how much I used. I would still love to try other products in the hair line.

Average shampoo

I was unimpressed with this product. It smelled lovely but didn't work better than my usual Clear shampoo regimen. I'm unfussy with my hair and didn't notice any difference, good or bad, from my usual routine over 3 days of using it.

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.
