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.

To be fair, I only used this product twice, but I didn't notice anything amazing about it and therefore wouldn't fork over the $50 for it. Smelled nice, though, and I did like the texture.

Awesome

Got three uses out of the sample. My hair was noticeably softer and lighter every time.

Love It!!
Sampled

This shampoo made my hair feel really soft and did not weigh my hair down. It also smelled very good. If the full size product didn't cost so much i would buy it. If you want a good expensive cleansing shampoo this is the perfect one!

Too expensive
Sampled

This shampoo smelled very good and didn't weigh my hair down, which I struggle with having curly hair. However it didn't blow me away, especially for the price tag.

I used it over the course of 3-4 days, as the sample size was substantial and lasted me a few showers. There wasn't anything to criticize about the product, and if it were even $30 for a bottle I might consider purchasing a full-size package. As is, I'll stick to my current brand, which provides the same results for a much lower price.

VERY strong perfume scent
Sampled

I'm not a fan of heavily perfumed things, especially shampoo. I like my hair to smell clean, not like I dipped it in a bucket of perfume. Too much perfume smells like chemicals. Not for me

LOVE the smell of this shampoo and my hair felt great afterward - a thorough cleanse leaving it with body but just a fresh and light feel. Awesome!

Shampoo for my Christmas list?
Sampled

I had no expectations before using my sample of Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oil shampoo - I thought, oh, just your regular ol' shampoo sample. But - woah. This stuff blew me away. I have long, colored hair, and this product revamped my hair with just one use. After using it, my hair was silky, light and fresh.

I would totally, really, really buy this IF it wasn't so expensive.

Christmas list?

Smells great but pricey
Sampled

This is the best smelling shampoo I've ever tried. I also loved the way my hair felt, but didn't feel like it was enough of a difference to make up for the realllly high price tag.

Simple and nice
Sampled

After reading the reviews of this product, I expected a life-changing event after using it. And yes, it does have a nice clean scent, but I certainly couldn't justify spending the set amount on it. I used it while showering at night, and afterwards I just brushed my hair out and went to sleep - so it air dryed. My hair did look nice the next day, but I am curious if blow-drying would have a better or worse effect...
Also, most people said they used the whole sample. I have thick hair and could've easily used the sample size for two shampoos.
