It might be a slightly wonky picture, but there’s nothing wrong with Shu Uemura Art of Hair Instant Replenisher which is nothing short of brilliant. I’m so focussed on Shu as a make-up brand that I forget there is an entire other arm of this brand.
I re-dyed my hair with the usual Olia (that I’ve stuck with for at least two years now) and for once, my hair was a little bit dry at the ends. It doesn’t usually feel dry, but I’d had a heck of a week and I think I probably haven’t been as kind to my hair as I should be for quite a while. And suddenly, the evidence of that was there in the form of dry looking strands that didn’t blow dry well – they stayed looking a bit rough whereas usually, I can get quite a sleek look. So I grabbed my sample of Shu Uemura Art of Hair Instant Replenisher and spritzed it in. Instant rescue. Actually, you are supposed to use it on wet hair and rinse out, but it transformed my dry hair into smooth and sleek hair so I’d say if you’re having a very dry hair day, you might not need to bother with the rinse. And, I used it on dry hair rather than wet. It was clearly what my hair was begging for because it didn’t look – and doesn’t now – weighed down in the slightest. Shu Uemura Art of Hair Instant Replenisher is costly at £32 but given it is so transformative, I’d be happy to pay that to have in my hair emergency drawer (don’t really have one, but might need to start one!).
The blurb, for once, is bang on.. they promise “each and every hair is immediately repaired, smoothed and left with magnified radiance.” That all rings true.. my woeful strands looked glossy and sleek. Shu Uemura Art of Hair Instant Replenisher contains magnolia oil and ceramides – whatever they’ve done with those ingredients, it’s worked! If you need to find a stockist you can ring 08006335021.
