Shu Uemura Extreme Urushi

Shu Uemura Extreme Urushi

Say that three times fast.  Hahaha.  Ok, so this is one of those products you’d probably never buy unless someone told you to do so.  Thank you Jenna of Fruition!  Although the website and makers claim this sappy like balm is for “hold” – it really just made my hair sleek and manageable and kept my flyaways at bay.  We applied this to my towel dried hair then blew out my hair using basically fingers and maybe a stroke or two of a paddle brush and it was uncharacteristically straight and sleek and EASY.  (I did this again w/o the help of a professional and also achieved fab results!!)

I will say that I think the trick is to dilute the lacquer with some sort of treatment oil, you could probably use any hair oil but I used Shu’s Essence Absolue (see my 3/25/11 post).  When you first squeeze this concoction out of the tube you can’t believe you’re going to put it in your hair (let alone anywhere on your body) as it honestly looks like maple syrup but mixed with a little oil it works wonders.  In addition, it gives hair a gorgeous, multi-dimensional gloss of shine.  Here’s the best part – it’s the least expensive hair product I’ve encountered in a LONG time especially for this brand -- $38 for a huge bottle.  Go buy it.
