|Shu Uemura: Urban Moisture, Shusu Sleek Smoothing Treatment and Color Lustre Dry Cleaner|
I received these Shu Uemura hair products and was pretty intrigued. I have long, thick, dry, hair and I don't really experiment with my hair products very much. I've learned that I really should play around with my hair care because what I was using, wasn't cutting it. I was excited to try the Shusu Sleek Smoothing Treatment and after my first use- I'm hooked. If I'm being honest, I hate the feeling of wet hair. It really irritates me, and I hurry to dry my hair. This treatment made my hair so silky smooth, I was amazed! This treatment is enriched with black cumin and claims to "sensuously tame coarse or unruly hair." It controls frizz, and adds a beautiful shine. It absolutely tamed my frizz, reduced my volume and added shine to my hair. The day after I wash my hair, it really looks out of control, and this product tamed me hair. It is safe for use on color-treated hair and the directions were very easy. You apply on clean damp hair, leave on for 5-10 mins and rinse thoroughly. The smell isn't the most feminine, it smelled a little masculine to me but it wouldn't discourage me from using it again.
I also tried the Shu Uemura Urban Moisture Hydro-Nourishing Double Serum for dry hair. If you have dry hair like me, you should give this product a try. I first used it shortly after color treating my hair and it really did add moisture to my hair without weighing my hair down. Often, I'll try a product and it makes my hair feel so heavy and it's already heavy on it's own. I was surprised that this serum felt so nice in my hair. The description explains that this product "coats the hair to deliver deep hydration." It is a "creamy, hydrating treatment that combats urban pollutants, delivers antioxidants and creates a silky, lightweight finish." When using the Shusu Sleek Treatment and then Urban Moisture together I was very happy with the results.
The third product I tried was the Color Lustre Dry Cleaner for color treated hair. I approached this product a little carefully because I have black hair and dry shampoo's often leave a white cast that's really difficult to brush out. This dry shampoo did not leave a white cast and wasn't too heavily scented. I was able to use it and leave my hair for another day before washing. I don't have oily hair, and typically wash my hair 1-2 a week. I really liked this product and was happy with the results.
