Best Oils for Hair: Shu Uemura Essence Absolue

The best hair oils are ones that not only nourish and replenish dry hair but do so without weighing your hair down or making it greasy! And Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue Hair Oil is one of the best oils for hair on the market!

What makes it so special is it’s use of the delicate and exquisite Camellia Oil. Camellia Oil is one of the best oils for hair! This special oil replenishes moisture and nutrients in parched or damaged hair, while also protecting the hair fiber against further dryness, frizz and UV damage! On top of that, you get the most natural shine to make hair instantly healthier looking.

Yes, there are other hair oils on the market that nourish and protect such as the popular Argan Oil or Coconut Oil; however, these are heavier oils and tend to weigh hair down and leave it greasy. Because of their heaviness, these other oils are difficult to apply and use, and often leave you looking like an oil slick (unless you’re going for that slicked hair look)!

But Essence Absolue, is so light it’s virtually weightless! This makes it easy to use and work with without any greasy film. The oil sinks instantly into the hair without any residue. The perfect hair oil for people with fine/thinning hair! Even though it’s light, you still get ALL the nourishment and protection from it’s concentrated lipids.

Having fine hair myself, I was floored when I first tried it! I have never been able to use a hair oil in the past due to the greasiness. But this oil disappears when applied and the only thing left is the softest, shiniest, healthiest hair I’ve ever had!

I also appreciate the multi-use function of this oil. Not only can it be used on dry hair to quench parched ends, or frizz, but it can also be used as a pre-shampoo treatment, or as a leave in conditioner for a deeper application.

But most importantly, this hair oil is a beauty bag staple for the Summer! If you are one of the many who like to go lighter during the Summer weather and have already visited the salon for your annual highlights, you’ll appreciate the additional nourishment that this oil gives.

Bleaching hair and the harsh sun’s rays, not to mention saltwater and chlorine, can reek havoc on hair and this oil is perfect for imparting much need moisture during the Summer months! Try slathering it on wet hair before going to the beach or in the pool to protect it from the sun, saltwater, or harsh chemicals!

And those with colored hair will also appreciate it’s protective nature against UV rays which can fade hair color!

So whether you have frizzy, curly, dry, damaged, color treated, or just normal hair, this oil is for YOU! It will change the way you see and use hair oils forever!

Oh and in case you don’t want to take my word for it….Shu Uemura Essence Absolue is the hair oil of choice for non-other-than Jennifer Aniston and Princess Kate herself! The most saught after tresses on the planet! And who doesn’t want THEIR hair!?!!!
