Shu Uemura is a brand I am more familiar with for their makeup collections, with a particular soft spot for the ‘Shupette’ collection which features Karl Lagerfeld’s fluffy feline companion. When it came to their haircare range, it was an entirely new discovery and I was pretty excited to give it a go! My hair has been through a great deal during the years since I discovered hair dye and curling tongs, so I am always interested to see how to treat damaged hair with higher end products versus their affordable high street counterparts.
The first thing I noticed about the Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner was the lovely dark green bottles. With the conditioner being in a pump it also reassured me that the formula would only need the smallest amount to provide a really good boost of moisture to my hair. I was expecting big things from the duo already, but would it be the hair product of dreams I was hoping for?

Review Of The Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Collection
I opened the bottle of the Shampoo and expected a tropical scent to emerge, but instead, the fragrance smelled quite salon-esque and professional. I really liked it, but I must admit, I had built it up in my head that I was going to smell mangoes and coconuts!
Wetting my hair thoroughly I lathered in a small amount of the shampoo. Upon rinsing, my hair already felt silkier than usual. I then used 2-3 pumps of the conditioner to run through the ends of my hair. I felt like I hadn’t distributed enough product through at first, but once again, after rinsing, my hair felt really soft and smooth. Once I had blown dried my hair I found my hair to be supple and feel much healthier than it had done in months. However, it didn’t seem to have the luxurious finish I had built myself up towards. Perhaps completing my haircare routine with a serum from the range would enhance the experience and give me the desired finish in future.
As the range contains Ceramide, I have no doubt that with continued use my hair will fully enjoy the long term benefits of the formula and its overall health and hydration levels will improve.
