Eastern purity combined with Western glamour !
A magic elixir for dry hair ! It intensely hydrates, adds shine, and makes hair healthier.
One of the main ingredients of this serum is camellia (also known as tsubaki [椿]) oil, which is a tea seed oil that’s high in vitamin E and other antioxidants, making it a wonderful product for hair; It also claims to help with hair growth and keep it looking brilliant and nourished.
This amazing hair essence is extremely versatile, It could be used as :
1- Intensely hydrating leave-in conditioner for very dry/damaged hair
2- Pre-shampoo treatment for deep, nourishing care
3- Hair & scalp treatment during color application, adding shine, moisture and elasticity to processed lengths & ends
4- Protective barrier against the sun’s harmful rays (UV filter)
5- Ultra-shine finisher
6- Hair fragrance
Shu Uemura Essence Absolue makes my hair feels softer & shinier than silk, lighter than chiffon and as luxurious as cashmere . It leaves my hair ultra soft, manageable, shiny and pleasantly scent ! The fresh floral/camellia aroma of this serum smells nothing like styling product, instead it resembles some expensive, pampering facial cream, it’s so delicate that i was really tempted to use it as a body moisturiser.
There is absolutely no oiliness, greasiness, weighting from this product. It is instantly absorbed into my hair. All the frizziness I have after a clarifying shampooing gets tamed,smoothed & softened.
This impressive liquid gold is worth its weight. I had never spend 35 GBP on any hair care product before ( I used to love Kerastase ) but I am totally converted by this miraculous essence; I wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase.
Shu Uemura had managed to establish a new gold standard for all hair smoothing/nourishing serums.
