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.

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.

Quite Literally Liquid Gold
Purchased

This stuff is amazing. It has really transformed my hair. It leaves it so soft and manageable. I have oily hair naturally - when I first tried it I was amazed that it doesn't make my hair greasy or oily at all. It smooths my hair down and makes it easier to style and it just feels overall more healthy. It is completely worth the cost.

Amazing results!

I have curly, coarse hair that goes through lots of styling torture each day. This product, after only two uses, has resulted in dramatic results! My hair is silkier and the style I choose for the day lasts longer!

great oil
Purchased

I love Shu Uemura products. I use many of the skincare/makeup products, but this was my first hair product. I have very dry Asian hair. It is also coarse with texture. I try to wash my hair only once a week, and I have been looking for an oil conditioner to keep my hair hydrating. This oil was perfect. I put on 4 pumps (instead of the recommended 2), and my hair was not oily! And the smell is also quite nice. It is a pricey product, but I think it's worth it!

This product is definitely worth the price! It is like liquid gold. It makes my hair so smooth and shiny. And it also protects it from the damage my straightener would normally cause.

Worth every penny

I love this oil. My hair is shiny and soft with it. Dry and frizzy without. I've used a lot of treatment oils, some more expensive, others less, but this is definitely my favorite. The bottle lasts forever too, even with long hair, I rarely put in more than one or two pumps.

Great product

Very much likes the protection for my color treated hair. leaves hair shiny and manageable without effecting volume and causing it to go limp. I have thick , course, long hair and uses this product daily when drying my hair.

Love the Protective Oil

I received a sample of this oil in my monthly birch box. It was amazing for my fine and limp hair. I would definitely recommend this to people with fine and occasionally dry/limp hair. I love this product, its smells wonderful and gives your hair a nice shine. Argan oil and Moroccan get a lot of hype but this oil is AMAZING! I've never heard of it but I'm so glad I got it in this box because my hair LOVES oil.

Makes hair look great

Amazingly not oily when left in hair. Smooth dry areas. Doesn't build up when you add more the next day. Keeps hair smooth.
