I received a sample packet of this shampoo and the accompanying treatment in my Birchbox a few months ago. I dyed my hair last week so I pulled out the sample to test. Terrible. The shampoo had a very liquid, runny consistency and it didn't lather well. After using it, my scalp didn't really feel clean and I noticed that my hair got greasier far quicker than usual. I won't bother writing a review for the treatment, but I also didn't enjoy it. It didn't have a nice, texture and didn't give my hair very much slip or make it feel any smoother or look shinier. I mean, after one use I can't say much about how these products have helped preserve my color. But overall, I do not believe they are not worth the exorbitant price tag.
Yes, it's expensive. And yes it does what it says. My hair is very thick and coarse. I found my hair had to be very very wet before applying the shampoo or it wouldn't create enough suds. My hair color stays true and has wonderful shine.
Love love love!
This provides the most amazing shine and luxurious feel to my hair. I'm in love with the scent. It's my go-to for special occasion hair.
Love Shu Uemura!
I really have enjoyed this product so far. It really does give that glazed look that it promises. It cleanses well, but it does not lather up very much so it does take a little more product for me since my hair is very long. I will say the product smells wonderful, but the smell does not linger and it's a very faint smell. Overall, I love this product and I will purchase it again.
My personal CEW award!
Shu Uemura company was started by a man who only expected perfection from all his products and artists. This is another one of them. I have been a consumer of their products since I met Mr. Shu Uemura in 1989 and felt like a child with a new a full set coloring box when I saw all his colors displayed on the sale's shelves. He isn't around to enjoy seeing his hair products be the best in the market, yes expensive, but what price for beauty? This leaves my hair, which by nature is wiry, a nice smooth silken finish. My husband has even noticed it. He would like more fragrance but as we all know fragrance is generally not something that is good for you unless it's botanical.
