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.

My hair literally drank this stuff up. I could not put enough on my hair and it smelled so good. I had it used within a week.

Needed more than recommended
Sampled

The recommendation was one drop, and I needed about 3-4 for my dry hair. It did reduce the frizz without looking greasy, but it didn't blow me away. That may just be my hair, but with the amount I'd need, the price was too much for me.

Very cool!
Sampled

This product is amazing, it helped my dry damaged hair to appear super healthy and shiny, as long as you follow the directions and only use a little bit it works flawlessly, too much and it can make your hair appear greasy, so use sparingly for a wonderful look and feel! 5 stars!

Nice hair oil - just a little pricey
Sampled

I do think this hair does the trick if you have dry hair, and it definitely makes it smell good, but the full size is just too pricey for me.

Shu Uemura hair oil
Sampled

Recently, I cut my hair shoulder length and my hairdresser recommends I use hair oil to fresh my ends. Fortunately, I received shu uemura oil in my sample box and used it daily each morning. It helps keep the frizz in control and my ends straight and sleek instead of curling upwards. Very fragrant and no heavy buildup. Love it.

silky smooth hair
Sampled

My hair is very fine, with a tendency toward fly-aways and breakage. This hair oil makes my hair sooo smooth, and it's light enough that it doesn't weight my hair down. Plus it smells lovely, light, and subtle. It's cost is a drawback, but I'm almost willing to say it's worth it.

Love it!
Sampled

I am a dedicated argan oil user and was pleasantly surprised to love this even more! It really controls my thick, wavy hair and gives me a sleek, shiny look without weighing it down or looking greasy. Use a small amount (1 pump) on the ends first, then work it up to midshaft. I warm it up with my hands first. Do this before blowdrying. Keep it away from your scalp. I use another couple of drops to smooth down if it's too unruly on the second day. (I wash every 2-3 days.)
