Nice

It's like many other oils I've tried. I love the way it makes my hair look and feel.

Expensive
Sampled

At first, I was a bit disappointed with the sample size. When I poured some into my hand, though, I realized just how much actually came in the small bottle! I could probably get 5 uses out of this sample, and I have medium-long hair. I use a similar hair oil, and I really didn't notice a different in them, besides price. WOW this stuff is expensive. So far, my other 15 dollar hair oil has lasted me almost a year, and is way cheaper. Maybe with more uses this will change my mind, but as of now, I don't think it's anything special that I absolutely need in my life.

I used this before bed. the next morning after shampooing, I could see a hugh difference in the feel of my hair. I think it is a little pricey to buy the full sixe...

Don't use oils in my hair

This was the first time using any oil in my hair . I didn't really see a difference. It is not for me . If I had real dry hair then may be but it would have to be amazing stuff at that price.

Meh

Not different enough from other similar products to justify the price.

Fabulous oil - ridiculously expensive

Wonderful oil! I used a single drop (no kidding) and it made my dry frizzy hair calm and sleek. I would buy this product if it weren't for the laughable price.

Nourishing oil

This product made my hair shiny and silky. It has a nice smell. I had to use a lot more of it than instructed to get the desired results.

Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolute Nourishing Protective Oil

There is NO PRODUCT on the market more sublime than Shu Uemura's Art of Hair Essence Absolute Nourishing Protective Oil. If you ever look at the lovely Oriental, mainly Japanese hair, you must wonder how they get the look of the dense and luscious silky black hair. The color is simply their genetics as is the straight hair but the smooth and dense hair is from products and in particular THIS ONE. Mr. Shu Uemura is now deceased but was a genius for formulating products and even more so for makeups with his colors that he pulled from the deep oceans and high mountains of Japan which are special organic products that he mixed with the waters from the deep and thus pure ocean waters down 14,000 sq.ft. I was lucky enough to buy my first set of Japanese handmade makeup brushes from HIM with what he picked out for me and the same for his makeup from his first store in Tokyo that had this product too. Which he suggested I try on my dry hair from blowdrying it and it did improve 100%. So you won't be able to meet Mr. Shu Uemura the most gracious man I ever met and befriended for almost 20 years but you can get his essence by buying this product and I promise you will be glad you did buy it.
