Seal in shine by pairing this shampoo with Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil.

SHU UEMURA Art of Hair

Birchbox Breakdown

We’re hesitant to call this luxurious cleansing oil a shampoo—its powers go far beyond cleansing. Perfect for all hair types and textures, the oil-to-foam formula binds with the grease and product buildup on your scalp before gently whisking them away. At the same time, it respects your hair’s natural oils, so your strands never feel dry or stripped. Finally, it adds bounce and body to your locks while leaving behind a calming yuzu citrus scent. All in all, it’s a true superhero product.

How to Use

Dispense a single pump of oil into your palms, and add a splash of water to transform it into a light, fragrant foam. Massage into your scalp, and rinse away.

First off, the sample size is huge! This will give me enough tries to really find out how well the product works. This shampoo smells so good and works wonders for my hair.

Nice, but didn't change the look or feel of my hair

I have fine curly hair and I rarely find that shampoos make an overall difference in the look/feel of my hair. I loved the scent and feel of this shampoo and it did a decent job, but is no different for me than any of the other decent shampoos I use.

Cleansing oil

I love shu umera lash curler but as for this product I didn't notice anything special about it. I personally wouldn't purchase this.

Good brand, but not something I'd use

I don't normally use shampoos, as I cowash, but this one is nice and hydrating since it has an oil base.

Not for me

I didn't like the smell and didn't find it to be moisturizing. It would have been a decent clarifying product if it weren't for the smell and the price

Shampoo Is Shampoo

This product washed my hair as any other shampoo would. It might have been a bit lighter than certain shampoos I've used before but for the most it's shampoo with added natural ingredients. On my natural Afro American hair this is a no no. A bit too drying on my already parched hair. I did add coconut oil to it and that worked well for the dryness. Overall the price mark for this item is ridiculous. Even the quality doesn't feel luxurious for the luxurious price tag.

Generous Sample Size

Good job, BB, for the size of this sample and branding. It didn't do any of its claims though except cleansing my hair. That's a good thing for me since I don't need body or bounce. Anyway, I have spent nearly the same amount of $/ml on shampoo before but I don't think this one is worth it.
