Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-In-Cream

I'm a huge fan of hair oils, and I apply one to my hair after each shampoo. I've been trying out Shu Uemura's Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-In-Cream* ($69 CAD/150ml), which combines the benefits of oils and creams. This product contains Camellia Oil, which is something that I've never tried before! My hair is quite dry, and I used to use a lot of heat on my hair. Now I really try to use as little heat as possible, and my hair has been doing a lot better!

"Camellia oil was traditionally used by geishas to soften, smooth and enhance the beauty of their hair. Concentrated with essential lipids, camellia oil deeply nourishes, adds moisture and helps maintain the lipid balances of the hair fiber." - Shu Uemura

Shu Uemura's Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-In-Cream comes packaged in a sleek gold bottle that looks very luxe. This cream has a nice salon scent to it that is fairly subtle and doesn't linger in my hair. I take a pea sized amount of this cream and apply to damp hair. I have tried this out as my only styling product, and I really loved the results! I've also used this in conjunction with other styling products like mousse, and I love how it works that way as well. This cream has a medium consistency, and it melts into my hair really easily, without feeling sticky, tacky, or weighing down my hair. I find that Shu Uemura's Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-In-Cream helps to soften and hydrate my thick hair, and I also notice that my waves are a bit more defined. This doesn't leave my hair looking greasy at all, so don't worry about that! If you have very thin or short hair, just adjust the amount of cream that you use. 

If you're looking for a new luxurious addition to your hair care routine, I would highly recommend checking out Shu Uemura's Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-In-Cream. If you don't like using traditional hair oils, you might like the texture of this cream a bit better. This 150ml tube will last me ages, as I only use a tiny amount each time! Have you tried any hair care products from Shu Uemura? I would love to know what you love and recommend! :)
