I applied on my towel dry hair after shower and feels my hair softer. It is non greasy and leaves a very light pleasant smell.

Everything Starts From Here

This unique oil is a must-have starting point for any styling of full, wavy to curly hair. Though seemingly unnoticeable, I apply it to towel-dried hair before applying the Essence absolute Oil-in-Cream, and after blow drying frizz is entirely gone. Without it, there is still some frizz left. I use it generously--four pumps--even though my hair is cut in a short bob. It disappears into the hair completely, as does the Shu Uemura Oil-in-Cream, and has no weight whatsoever. It probably has more noticeable effect on straighter, or thinner hair, but it still adds a quiet force to the styling and conditioning of fuller, curlier hair, when used in combination with cream.

Best oilin the market

I used my GHD everyday, my hair was a mess and I have tried every single hair oil in the market, cheap brands, expensive ones, even oils that had no brand and this was the best of the best. Smells very good, leaves the hair shiny but not oily, has never failed me and my hair is so much better. It is a bit expensive but it lasts a long time and it is so worth it.

This is fantastic. A wonderful smell, beautiful texture and somehow it makes the hair silky, not oily. Also you get a large amount and so for the price this is amazing value!! Will always buy.

Hair Essence oil

First of all, the oil is great - it smells beautifully, does nourish the hair and you only need a small amount (I only use it for ends). However, I was under the impression it's going to another argan/macadamia oil product, but in fact it's CAMELLIA oil. Still, I think the oil is fab. The only downside is the price, but all Shu product are expensive and the bottle will surely last a long time.

Amazing product!

I can't fault this product!! Definitely worth paying that bit more and investing in a quality product. It smells divine and a couple of drops go a long way so it lasts ages! Much better than cheaper brands and other types of serums that do nothing but make your hair look greasy. I'd definitely recommend this product!

I have very fine, color treated hair and am always looking for a product that will truly make a difference in my overall hair health. This is it. I am on my third bottle of this and will continue to purchase. A little goes a long way-- I use half a pump daily on my hair from the mid section through my roots. Buy this-- you won't regret! I have also tried conditioners from Shu Uemura and would recommend those as well. All of Shu's products are of excellent quality.

Amazing! Can't live without it.

This is the best hair oil I have ever used. I have course, coloured red hair that tends to be very fizzy, but since I have been using this product I no longer need to use the straightners. I have tried many oils but nothing comes close to this. I have been searching for ages but the search is now over. Thank you Shu Uemura for this amazing product, that I can not live without.

Pure luxury. This oil is by far the thickest, richest and most nourishing I've used. Smells divine and didn't leave any pigment in my platinum blonde hair. I preferred this to Kerastase's Elixir Ultime, I like to use it as a leave in conditioner the best.

I simply love Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Essence Absolue as I notice with gradual applications, my hair texture has improved. The only downside is that it is quite pricey which led me to grade it 4 stars but not 5. Also, the product is not available in OZ. So it is great news that I can buy it from Lookfantastic.com!
