Shu Uemura Art of Hair

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.
Treatment ingredients:
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 It is a rather pricey range but if your salon stocks it I'd definitely ask them to try it on you.


  1. Love the sound of this range - the packaging looks gorgeous too!

  2. thanks for the introducing affordable and effective hair care product to us.

  3. Shu Uemura always does great stuff, though my hair is too fine to even contemplate getting the shampoo...just as well, really, as I currently have 4 shampoos on the go! It's going to take me ages to finish them!! I agree with MizzWorthy, love the packaging, I find it...very soothing to the eye, as strange as this may sound!! xx
    PS: if everything goes as planned, I'll be finally going to Milan tomorrow, fingers crossed!

  4. Hi Mizzworthy,
    Yes, the packaging did catch my attention,shame its a bit pricey though.

    Hi Michelle,
    The products seem quite concentrated so I have found I need to use less which is good given the price, thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Anna,
    I seem to go through phases where I have loads of the same thing, seems to be showergels at the moment, can't finish them quick enough!
    I may have alreay ordered some D&G..ahem...if you do go though would love to know what colours you think look nice xx

  5. How would you compare the fragrances of the Moisture Velvet versus Silk Bloom? Masquintense I like, but can't abide the heavy powder scent, so I was hoping a Shu Uemura treatment might be better.

  6. Hi Dain,
    I find Kérastase scents usually too much, cloying and seem a bit synthetic, I don't find the Shu ones like this. Of Moisture Velvet and Silk bloom I would say I prefer the Silk bloom scent, seemed more light, feminine. Sorry I am not good with describing scents.
