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.

Based on the reviews and price, I was expecting this to be better. I think it works as well as many mid-range oils. It definitely smells great, but not sure if I'd repurchase solely for scent.

Holy Grail!
Purchased

I love this product more than any other hair product I have tried....and believe me, I have tried a lot. I have used a bunch of hair oils and none compare to this. I think this product works best on dry hair. I like to work it through my hair before I flat iron it. My hair is instantly more silky and shiny. It smells like heaven as well!

I love this!

It completely rocks out my blonde hair!!! My hair looks and feels amazing!! It's great for blowing out and also I add it to dry hair next day for added shine. Although I'm wondering if it has anything to do with breakouts, when I use it I seem to break out more...

Liquid Gold - Perfect description
Purchased

LOVE this product. It's fabulous for smoothing frizz and flyaways before and after straightening (flat iron). My hair is long and thick, so this is a little pricey for how much I use, but if money was no object - I'd use it always!

Best oil on the market
Purchased

This stuff will last you forever and make scraggly ends look soft and healthy in a matter of seconds. Here's a little secret: Use a bit of this oil on hair that has been doused with hairspray for an updo and it will instantly take the hair from a kinky greasy mess to unbelievably soft.

made my hair flat. Did smooth down the fly aways. However, my hair did not have any life. Find the Fekkai creams better.

Incredible product that has actually changed the texture of my dry,coarse hair. I have spent a fortune on high end products for my thick,coarse hair and the Essence Absolue is the absolute best.Pricy but the bottles last eight months.Finest hair oil .

Liquid Gold!!
Purchased

I have used this product for over 2 years now and I use it everyday prior to blow drying my hair. Don't let the oil references sway you. This is a light hair treatment that makes hair soft and that has a pleasant light scent. This really is a MUST buy.
