The best hair oil EVER!!!
Purchased

My stylist used this on me 4 years ago and I have been hooked ever since. Keeps hair smooth, shiny and helps to sooth those spilt ends.
Absorbs fast on dry hair and won't weigh down or leave hair feeling oily.
It's worth every penny!! Two pumps on medium hair and go!!!!

Amazing softness
Purchased

I love this stuff, lasts a long time as you only need a small amount even for long hair. Works great with heat styling - iron, blow dry etc. And makes hair so soft! Smells lovely.

Yep the rumors are true
Purchased

I've used a lot of hair oils and this stuff is liquid gold. I have long coarse Asian hair and always have trouble with dry ends. I finally bit the bullet on this after much research and I can say that I really love it compared to anything else I've tried.

To be fair, I don't believe that there is *one* miracle product for all hair *ever* but I do think that if you're not sure about which hair oil is for you, this is worth the investment if you want to cover all your bases.

Maybe there is stuff out there that is as good or better but I can't imagine by much. Plus it smells amazing and it's a generous amount.

best hair oil ever

not only does it smell wonderful and fresh, but it keeps your hair soft and manageable. I have thick curly hair and it keeps my hair soft, shiny and untangled. I use it on wet and dry hair.

Expensive but worth it
Purchased

I treated myself to She Uemura hair care products this Fall and have not regretted it. Yes, it's expensive, but it works beautifully for my thick coarse hair. The protective oil is really nice but take care not to apply it to the roots or you really will have oily hair. You really don't need to use a lot of it.

Completely worth the price - get it!!!
Purchased

works WONDERS on thicker, naturally wavy hair, especially if used on damp, post-shower hair before blow drying! super smooth and moisturizing, fixes rough ends, and you only need a little bit!

FAVORITE!
Purchased

Don't be fooled by the price, a bottle last me at least 6 months. I LOVE IT! I have fine curly color-treated hair and this product is the one thing that has saved it! My hair is smoother and shinier when I use it. Mix it with a little bit of the cream for extra smoothness!

Amazing Product!!
Purchased

I would give 10 stars if I could. This product is amazing! I can not be without this oil. I use it as an overnight treatment or to just add shine. My hair has never been this healthy! This product is hair magic!
