SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Full Shimmer Illuminating Shampoo

After one too many dye jobs, our strands were starting to look pretty fried. But not anymore, thanks to this this color-protecting shampoo from luxe brand SHU UEMURA. In addition to smelling like roses (literally), it keeps color-treated locks hydrated, protected, and glossy. Even if you’re sporting your natural hue, you can use it to get vibrant hair worthy of a shampoo commercial.

Love it
Purchased

Yes, it's expensive. And yes it does what it says. My hair is very thick and coarse. I found my hair had to be very very wet before applying the shampoo or it wouldn't create enough suds. My hair color stays true and has wonderful shine.

My personal CEW award!

Shu Uemura company was started by a man who only expected perfection from all his products and artists. This is another one of them. I have been a consumer of their products since I met Mr. Shu Uemura in 1989 and felt like a child with a new a full set coloring box when I saw all his colors displayed on the sale's shelves. He isn't around to enjoy seeing his hair products be the best in the market, yes expensive, but what price for beauty? This leaves my hair, which by nature is wiry, a nice smooth silken finish. My husband has even noticed it. He would like more fragrance but as we all know fragrance is generally not something that is good for you unless it's botanical.

Smells fantastic
Purchased

This shampoo smelled so good! I only got a few uses out of the samples, but my hair did look pretty good for those few days. I may have to purchase this when there is another % of sale.

Sample still in my shower

I received this sample months ago in my Birchbox. I save it to be used every now and then when I want a good hair day! This shampoo is amazing. It smells great and makes my hair flat and smooth. Love it. Too pricey to buy though - although, if I had a ton of money, I totally would. :)

Best Hair Day EVER.

I have mildly-treated hair (one body wave and two rounds of highlighting/lowlighting), but I received this as a sample along with the SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Full Shimmer Illuminating Treatment. My hair is thick, long, and has crazy waves under straight locks- I was able to squeeze TWO uses from both samples. I used both samples and used the hair dryer on my hair with a regular brush; and I have NEVER received so many compliments on my hair. My hair was evenly textured, incredibly soft- I could finger-comb my hair ALL DAY. Even my husband noticed a difference over pixelated Skype. I would TOTALLY use this all the time, but unfortunately it's cost prohibitive. Highly recommend this product if your wallet can afford it!

It made my hair soft and smooth

I loved using this shampoo! It made my hair so smooth and shiny. I used it until my sample ran out. It also smelled nice. Unfortunately it is insanely expensive, so I won't buy it. I enjoyed getting to try it with my sample though.

Love it

This was one of the few shampoos that really clarified my color treated hair! Not too sudsy too which I liked. It's a bit out of my price range for a shampoo but I definitely loved it!

My mom LOVES it!

I got this as a sample and gave it to my mom and she fell in love with it! I've ordered her all 3 products in this line and she swears by it, says her hair has never been softer or easier to style, etc.

Great product!
Purchased

I absolutely love this shampoo. I have very long, think hair and it tends to be dry and a little frizzy, especially after styling. I was thrilled with how healthy my hair not only looked but felt! And I don't have to use nearly as much when I wash as I typically do with other products, which makes it feel a little more worth the price tag. The aforementioned fizz is practically non existent and the shine is gorgeous. The rose scent is great too, it's subtle and not overpowering. Two thumbs up!
