Whilst going to a new hairdressers I noticed that they stocked the Shu Uemura haircare range, I asked them if they could use some of the products on me, impressed with the results I bought three items from the range.
From the Silk Bloom range (for damaged hair) I bought the shampoo (£22.50 for 300ml) and conditioner (£29.50 for 250ml). This range is enriched with Argan oil and is meant to restore and repair the structure of the hair. I’ve used these for a few weeks now and I find the shampoo non irritating, cleanses without any build up and smoothes my hair down, I will say that I find this is quite heavy and I think unless you have thick hair this is likely to weigh your hair down. The conditioner is quite light, you only need a little bit but it detangles well and makes the hair feel soft.
The other product I bought was the treatment mask from the moisture velvet range (for dry hair) £37.50 for 200ml. This range is enriched with Camelia oil and is meant to soften and rebalance moistures in dry hair. I only need to use a little bit and its gives great softness and bounce to the hair, yet does not weight the hair down.
Overall I am very pleased I tried Shu haircare, my hair definitely feels stronger than it did before (was very prone to breakage previously) and looks healthier and less dull, I think I’ll try the moisture shampoo next time though.
I bought these from a Sean Hanna salon but you can buy the range from online stores (for example beautique.com). It is a rather pricey range but if your salon stocks it I'd definitely ask them to try it on you.
