SHU UEMURA Art of Hair

Birchbox Breakdown

Stylist Jeff Chastain calls this multitasking hair oil liquid gold—and we can see why. 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. The luxurious, nourishing oil coats dry strands, taming down frizz and flyaways to leave them silky. Antioxidant-packed camellia oil protects and hydrates.

How to Use

As a styling aid, apply one pump to your hands (a little goes a long way) and work through hair from mid-shaft to tips. To use as a pre-shampoo treatment, use three to four pumps and comb into dry hair before shampooing. For a conditioning treatment, apply one pump each to four sections of hair from mid-length through ends and massage into scalp. Leave overnight and style normally in the morning.

Cyclopentasiloxane, dimethiconol, camellia kissi/camellia kissi seed oil, ethylhexyl, mehtoxycinnamate, butylphenyl methylpropional, hexyl cinnamal, hydroxycitronellal, parfum/fragrance.

I don't love this as much as I should
Purchased

I think this is a lovely oil- I still like Moroccan Hair oil better and it is far less expensive. I had high hopes for this as I love the brand, but I won't be buying it again. Makes my hair a bit greasy too.

Oil is oil

I don't see anything impressive about this oil. Oil is oil, I usually use a sheen. It seems to lubricate the scalp.

AMAZING

I am in love with this hair oil, and the effect it gave to my curly, dry hair. It left my hair so soft, and defined my curls without the frizz.

Not for me

I didn't like the consistency of the product and how it felt on my hair. I will not be buying.

Holy grail

Okay... I feel like I can't live without this stuff. The price tag is a bit steap, but I'm willing to overlook that because of HOW AMAZING IT IS! My hair is so soft and shiny, it doesn't weigh it down, and it smells INCREDIBLE! The only thing I didn't like is the packaging... It's like they want you to spill it!

Good hair oil
Sampled

I usually only use hair oils in my thick, curly, hair because I don't like hair buildup. I really like this one because once applied it feels really light.
