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.

SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo

I was hesitant to try this product at first but I was somewhat surprised with the outcome. It was very light and the smell was very mild and nice. It seemed to work pretty well but I couldn't get over the fact that it didn't lather up that much at all. It was hard for me to figure out if I had used enough or not in my long hair.

Left my hair dry

I generally don't need conditioner everyday but with this shampoo I had to use a light conditioner. It left my hair dry. The shampoo feels good and definitely cleans well but it isn't for my fine hair texture.

Pretty good

This shampoo is pretty good.. It did give bounce. But I felt as though I had to use ALOT. Overall it's pretty good!

Cleansing shampoo

I was surprised how much I liked this shampoo. I was hesitant because of the word "oil" but it lathers up quite nicely. The shampoo does not have much if a smell, which is a bit of a bummer. Very happy with the sample size and wonder if there is a conditioner to go with it.

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.
