camellia oil
for over two centuries, camellia flower seeds have been harvested from the Japanese island of toshima, where each seed is handpicked and transformed into a nourishing oil. very rich in essential lipids, camellia oil is one of the most rapidly absorbed oils. traditionally, camellia oil has been used to promote shine and nourish the hair while maintaining the lipid barrier on the skin longer, which promotes skin health and hydration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for any hair type I have been using this product for over 2 years and it’s made a huge difference! It makes my highlighted hair shine but it is not oily...and I love the subtle smell. I use it every day, a little goes a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nourishing, not oily and amazing smell I have dry hair so this really helps but doesn’t make it greasy and I can still last a few days without a shampoo if I put this in wet. Smells amazing also. Would love to see Shu adopt more healthy ingredients though but still love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells delicious I have been using this oil for several years now. It is a wonderful smelling product that leaves my hair feeling soft without weighing it down at all. I hate to think of not having it available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it. A little goes a long way. I've been using this hair oil for a year now (I purchased this at last year's November sale), I was reluctant to purchase this at first because I thought it's so expensive for a hair treatment oil, and it's only 150mL! But I decided to give it a try due to its popularity and high-rating reviews. I have fine, dry limp hair, a little damaged from constant perming & dying. On average, I use this hair oil once every 4-5 days, I did not use it every day since I wanted to use up and finish my other leave-in hair treatment products. I only need to use 1 pump for my medium-length hair (a little over the shoulder kind of hair length). And at this pace, after 1 year, I only used 1/3 of the 150 mL bottle. A little goes a long way! So even though the price for a 150 mL bottle seems very expensive at first, but 1 bottle will last for a very long time, so it's actually worth it. Now to talk about the product itself, It is lightweight (does not weight my fine hair down), adds a healthy shine and hydration to my hair. I was worried hair oil will make my hair look greasy but it doesn't. The scent is pleasant but a bit strong - the scent bugged me at first because I use mostly unscented facial & hair products. But the end result of using this is definitely worth it! I love how my hair looks after applying this. Only complaint is that I find a lot of Shu's skincare and haircare products have strong fragrances, I hope Shu can start making their products light scented.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond exceptional like what others say. I have used this product for a year now, and it is my holy grail hair oil. Because of the price, I don't use it every day but if you get it during Shu VIP event, they really only come to $50 pre-tax which is equivalent to two bottles of hair oil from other hair salon brands i.e. trade secrets. I'm Asian with thin black hair and my hair likes to tangle a lot during the winter. I have used joico and Schwarzkopf hair oil before and they never show me any immediate results. This product will leave my hair lightweight and so soft immediately after application - it works wonders.
