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.

The smell!

Not only is this shampooing an excellent cleanser, but it smells amazing! I let it soak in my hair hoping to absorb more of the scent.

shampoo

I really liked the shampoo. It cleaned my hair and didn't weigh it down. It is a bit pricey though for me to buy the full size.

Love the way it moisturizes
SampledPurchased

I tried this as a sample, and bought the full size. It doesnt lather much, so i use one pump of my regular shampoo and one pump of the Shu Uemura, and I love that combination. My hair feels silky and i love the texture.

Not in the budget!

Great product, felt it worked exactly as described. Unfortunately, it is not at a realistic price point for me.

Really nice but too expensive

I love cleansing oils, and this one is very nice and has a great scent. I can't even begin to imagine spending $60 on cleansing oil, but it was fun to try.

It's Shampoo

I don't particular care about my shampoo anyways so this sample was kind of a miss for me. I didn't think it smelled very good and it didn't make my hair soft at all. Overall not a good shampoo I've found much better at the local drugstore.

Ridiculous

I'll admit, I was happy to see this large sample of shampoo in my box this month. I've used it a few times and it's okay but nothing special. I was shocked to see that a bottle of it costs $58.00. You'd have to be high or stupid to spend that much on shampoo. Of all of the shampoos I've tried through Birchbox, this is my least favorite. It's okay, just nothing special. I really can't believe the price.

Great Product!

This shampoo smells fabulous! I have very thin hair, so I have to watch what kind of hair products I use. This actually made my hair feel lightweight and had more volume! If it weren't so expensive, I would purchase more.

Nice product- way too expensive

I use cleansing conditioner on a regular basis now so I was open minded to this. It worked well. My hair felt smooth, and it was frizz free. The fragrance was nice. The price is ridiculous and I won't purchase it for that fact alone.
