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.

Nongreasy hair oil
Purchased

I love using hair oil - this one keeps the hair really moisturized without looking greasy -- which is really hard for an oil to do. However, if my ends are really dry, this doesn't help as much (as say coconut oil). Also, it smells really nice so I always run my hands through my hair with a little of this every day.

I'm hooked – AMAZING!

I got a couple samples of this magic potion, and now I'm hooked!

My scalp is really oily, while my ends are dry, so it's hard for me to find products that I can use all over. Usually I only put oils on my ends, but once in a while it's good to moisturize all over. I found this product to be so light-weight and perfect for my hair type. It really nourished and smoothed my hair without weighing it down and most importantly tamed down the frizz! – it smells really good too! I would recommend this to everyone. I figure it would work well on all hair types.

I have always had dry damaged hair- but miraculously this product has save my hair between blow drys, flat ironing, and curlers. I highly recommend it. I was deeply intimidated by the price, but its worth every penny!

Hair Saviour!

I can definitely vouch for this product! I have coarse, dry thick hair. For those who have it, you will certainly understand just how fragile this type of hair can be. The shaft of my hair was frayed and it felt wiry. This product has changed the condition and changed the texture of my hair. I use it 2- 3x per week for styling purposes. It leaves my hair with a wonderful shine and light perfumed scent. Also, a little goes a long way.

The best hair oil EVER!!!

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

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

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.
