Shu Uemura Essence Absolue : Review ; Truly An Elixir For Dry Hair

    Hiya Ladies !

    Hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas ! Did you get all the gifts you wanted ;)

    Mine was UNBELIEVABLE. Unbelievably good. I'll share some pictures with you soon and you'll see what I was up to on Christmas day ! I also got a jacket that I have been in love with forever. Just *so* happy and thankful for it all !

    Essence Absolue - Absolutely Essential !

    A while back we were all introduced to Essence Absolue, the nourishing protective hair oil from Shu Uemura. Remember ? It is the secret behind Jennifer Aniston's flawless hair and all ?

    For a month now I have been using the product after every wash and I cant seem to be getting enough of it. Every time I remind myself that I must save it for special occasions but then I don't.

    I have never been good at saving good things for special occasions.

    When we were young my sister would save all expensive chocolates that we received as gifts and ate them one a week. I'd just eat it all up in a week. Saving good things for later just isn't my thing....

    The hair oil has several uses like

    1- Intensely hydrating leave-in conditioner for very dry/damaged hair
    2- Pre-shampoo treatment for deep, nourishing care
    3- Protection during color application, adding shine, moisture and elasticity to processed lengths & ends
    4- Use in summer time as protective oil against the sun's harmful rays (UV filter)
    5- Ultra-shine finisher along lengths and ends

    I've used it only as a post wash, hair nourishing conditioner. Once I've washed and dried my hair (80% dry) , I pump the bottle once and use that small amount all over my hair. Just mess my hair around so the product spreads and them brush it.


    Hands down the softest hair I've ever had. My hair feels softer than a really really expensive Cashmere sweater. And it also has an incredible shine to it. No hair clip keeps my hair in place. It just slides off and I don't seem to mind it at all ! Its that soft and shiny !

    There is absolutely no oiliness or stickiness from the product. It almost disappears into my hair but I do feel the hydrating effect that it gives once I brush my hair. All the fluffy volume I have after a wash gets tamed and softened.

    And it does look like liquid gold. If it didn't have a pump on it, I might have used it as a table centerpiece - so pretty !

    Overall it is worth every $ of the big big $65 that it costs.
    But $65 is a lotta $$.
    Lotta Lotta $$
