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.

Pleasant surprise
Sampled

When I opened the box, I was a little skeptical about this product. I'm glad my first impression was wrong. The oil is very lite and absorbs easily...a little goes a long way. It has a fresh scent that is not overpowering. I have thick color-treated hair and this worked wonders.

Frizzy Hair/Fizzled Hair
Sampled

This product smells great and does a great job. It instanly calmed the frizzy hair day I was having. After using a couple of times I could see a difference in the split ends and overall balance of my hair.

Absolutely LOVE!

BEST EVER! I use it a little differently than it says though, my hairdresser recommended that I put it in my hair while it is damp. Completely helps because I hate when my hair feels oily when dry. LOVE THIS seriously works and helps keep the frizz away and protects my hair from my straightener.

My favorite hair oil.
Purchased

I love this hair oil... some hair oils can seem so synthetic and just sit in your hair and make it limp. This oil is nourishing, doesn't weigh down your hair and smells great! I also have really sensitive skina and I've been fine so far!

Great product but oh so pricey!

I received this as a sample in my birchbox. The product gives nice results and calms frizz almost on contact. A little goes a long way but I have super thick hair so need to use more than the average person. I would love to use this regularly but have trouble shelling out that much for a hair product.

It's OK
Sampled

It's a dry oil. When I put oil in my hair I want it to feel like I put oil in my hair. Though it does feel soft, when does my hair not feel soft?

Must have hair product!!!
Purchased

I've been using this hair oil for almost 4 years now. I feel it has saved my locks! I have pretty thin hair but this product doesn't weigh me down and makes my ends feels much smoother.

Good Oil
Sampled

I received a sample of this in one of my boxes. I love oils so I was excited to see it. I was a bit confused about the packaging and the actual ingredients, so I went online and found what is in it and I thought hmm I'll give it a try. It's great for sealing in moisture and has lasting power on my hair. I think the product is great, but the price point is a bit high and I have other oils that work in a similar manner. I cannot attest for the long term benefits of using it, but short term hair is nice and shinny.
