I don't love this as much as I should
Purchased

I think this is a lovely oil- I still like Moroccan Hair oil better and it is far less expensive. I had high hopes for this as I love the brand, but I won't be buying it again. Makes my hair a bit greasy too.

Good hair oil

I hated the sample packaging and it was way too tiny (I have very long hair), but it was a nice hair oil. It made my hair soft and smooth, but it didn't stand out among others that I have tried. Nice scent!

Very nice

Usually use products that go on wet hair so I liked having something I can use whenever I need so moisture.

Less is more

Great scent and generous amount... a little goes a long way. I have long hair and two drops is all I needed for a treatment before shampooing. I still have several uses left! Very pleased!!!

This hair is really nourishing and the first product I use on my hair to provide nourishment and moisture to my dry, curly hair.

nice oil

My hair is on the oily side, so this product wouldn't be one I would buy. It smelled nice, and I used it to help with flyaways. For me, just average - though I can see how others would love this.

Frustrating packaging

This oil works well to give a sleek look and make hair soft. I have short hair so I was careful to only use a little and didn't feel it made my hair oily. The sample packaging needs some work. It was difficult to pull the stopper out to open the product and keep from spilling it all over.

Shu Uemura art of hair nourishing oil

Hair oils are not my favorite. They tend to weigh down my hair and leave it greasy. I've started using this one the night before I wash my hair, mainly because it smells so good. It's nothing I would purchase.
