SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil

Stylist Jeff Chastain calls this multitasking hair oil liquid gold, which is a pretty accurate description. The luxurious elixir protects and hydrates, whether you’re using it as a styling tool, pre-shampoo treatment, or leave- in conditioner. It disappears into hair to leave it soft and sleek — even without heat styling, you’ll look immediately more polished.

Smooth and no fly aways

I got this in my vanity affair box, and it's so fantastic! It smooths hair beautifully and makes my hair smell so great.

Really is liquid gold
Purchased

My ends were so dry and brittle and I really struggled to maintain my long hair. This product gives my hair the moisture and protection it needs without weighing it down (my hair is very fine too). My hair is noticeably softer, smoother and stronger. The product is expensive, but worth the $ and lasts for months!

Smells amazing!

I probably overuse this product because it smells so good. It doesn't weigh my hair down so I can use it daily.

Best hair oil available

I have blonde, color-treated hair. Unfortunately, I do need to wash it every other day. On the days I wash it, I apply two pumps (direx say one, but I use two) from mid-shaft to ends and let hair air dry. My hair is incredibly soft and smooth once dry. The oil penetrates well. Smell is lovely, but not intense. Bottle lasts quite some time, so I don't get too upset over the price. This is one hair product that I've always come back to.

Love it

This product makes my hair so soft and gets rid of the frizz. I received it in the vanity affair box. I really feel it works better than typical hair oils for my fine wavy hair. A little goes a long way.

One of the best!

This is one of the best hair oils I've ever used. It did not leave a buid-up on my hair or weigh it down. I love it!!

Just buy it, you wont be sorry.

This is a miracle in a bottle. Seriously. My coarse hair was transformed to smooth and sleek strands without use of a hair dryer or flat iron. It's the product you didn't know you needed until you have it.

Great in the winter
Purchased

I purchased this product almost a year ago, and I still have a good amount left to use this winter. It's great for keeping hair healthy during the winter months. I work the oil into the ends of my hair, and everything looks so much livelier and healthier. I would recommend this product to keep hair healthy and moisturized during the dry winter months.

Finally, shiny rich people hair!
Sampled

All my life I have coveted the "shiny rich people" hair I see on commercials and every once in a while on a real human being and not a model/ actress. I have mousy blond/brown hair that is fine, limp, sometimes wavy and all the time frizzy in the humidity. Not any more. This oil ( and just a dab) changed it all. Smells amazing, smoothes frizz and flyaways, givesu hair the light but sleek bounce. So worth the money and one container will last more than a year. LOVE this.

Lifesaver.
Purchased

I am not a fan of oils but this oil leaves no trace and really softens the hair. I have coarse and thin hair and it's just enough not to weigh it down.
