I have a lot of SHU UEMURA Art of Hair products in my arsenal haircare products, and this ultra-luxe line maintains pride of place among my all-time favorite luxury haircare brands. The textures, aromas and unmitigated efficacy of their products using them a true delight. SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Cleansing Milk and Wonder Worker Air Dry/Blow Dry Multi-Tasking Primer are two of my most recent finds, and I cannot sufficiently underscore the extent to which I am obsessed with both of them!
SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Cleansing Milk is a non-traditional, deeply moisturizing shampoo that is ultra gentle, non-stripping and detergent free. You use about twice the amount that you ordinarily use, and this thick, rich shampoo forms a luxuriously creamy lather as you massage it into your hair and scalp. Like a clarifying shampoo, you leave it in for about 5 minutes before washing it thoroughly. I only need to follow up with a light conditioner, and it leaves my hair soft, supple, shiny, hydrated and completely frizz-free. This is a great choice for all hair types, but I will say that my dry curly hair has reached a state of nirvana using this shampoo. It has that quintessential SHU UEMURA aroma hat is utterly delectable
