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 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!

Love this!

Where I live this was practically a hair game changer! The heat and humidity is terrible, I use regular shampoo from the big chain stores and I usually add product to my hair to reduce frizz after shower. Used it the day I received it and I noticed a difference in the way my hair behaved. Less frizz felt lighter, air dried nicely didn't need to apply any extras. I will buy this item.

Shampoo

I received a sample of this, and while it smelled lovely, I did not feel compelled to purchase the product.

Meh

It smells nice but doesn't spread evenly very well. I did notice that my hair felt extra clean after using, but was dirtier at the end of the day. I don't recommend this for those of you that live in high humidity. I think that's why a lot of products fail me

Smooth as Silk

I was not familiar with this product or brand at all prior to my Birchbox sample. I have been growing my hair for a few years and have been looking for a shampoo that I can use for the full length of my hair. I have happily found it.

Good smell ....
Sampled

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.

Shu Uemura Impression
Sampled

While I don't have anything particularly negative to say about this product, I also don't have positives to list. The sample I received lasted about 2-3 washes and felt nice but doesn't impress me more than the products I already use.

Decent shampoo.
Sampled

This was a nice shampoo, but I wasn't wowed by it. It smelled nice and left my hair feeling normal but it didn't give it any special feel and I don't think I would go out and spend $55 for a non-special feeling shampoo.
