If you color your hair (including you, if you have highlights!), you already know that keeping it in excellent condition is a challenge. Coloring can be harsh, even if one goes to excellent salons. Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair Color Lustre’s series is targeted to preserve color, deliver shine, and protect the hair from damage. I’ve been using the Color Lustre Sulfate-Free Brilliant Glaze Shampoo and Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze Conditioner for the past few weeks, and have experienced a noticeable improvement in shine, bounce, softness and smoothness. What’s not to love?
Shu Uemura’s Sulfate Free Brilliant Glaze Shampoo (10 oz. $48) is a lightweight, pearly liquid that cleans hair perfectly while leaving it soft and shiny. My hair felt clean, but never dry or stripped. It’s rare to find a shampoo that strikes this balance just right, and is also kind to color. I experienced no color fading. In fact, my color looked better than ever because the condition of my hair improved significantly.
This shampoo includes Musk Rose Oil, which has healing and nourishing properties. It also has Goji Berry Extract (a source of anti-oxidants) to protect color.
The shampoo has a subdued scent with the following notes:
FRAGRANCE: Rose of Japan
TOP NOTE: Mandarin, Grapefruit, Black-Currant, Cardamon Essence
HEART NOTE: Rose, Freesia, Violet
BASE NOTE: Sandalwood, Musk, Vanilla
She Uemura’s Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze Conditioner (8 oz./$58) surprised me. This conditioner feels lightweight and non-greasy. Usually light conditioners isn’t really effective for me. However, The Brilliant Glaze conditioner absorbed very easily and really delivered soft, shiny, healthy hair. This conditioner is worthy of the premium name.
Like the shampoo, Shu’s Color Lustre adds Musk Rose Oil and Goji Berry Extract. The scent was quite similar to the shampoo. For both, I found that the scent didn’t last far beyond the treatment time and did not clash with my perfume. Overall, big love for both of these. It’s wonderful to see that Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair delivers so beautifully. Highly recommended.
