red 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, red camellia oil is one of the most rapidly absorbed oils. traditionally, red 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.



fragrance

our iconic interpretation of the camellia flower composed of grapefruit and green aqueous top notes, subtle camellia in the heart, and delicate vanilla with musk in the base notes.

Stylist Quote


i love the nourishing benefits of the scalp oil concentrate. for a rejuvenating overnight ritual, i recommend adding a few drops of the oil concentrate to the scalp followed by the overnight serum through the midlengths and ends. shampoo with delicate comfort deep cleanser for the first shampoo followed by the shu uemura shampoo and mask for your hair type.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too oily I used too much the first time so I adjusted accordingly the next couple of uses. I do not like how it makes my hair feel so oily and heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Double process blonde vs hard water and winter temperatures As a double process blonde battling hard water and harsh winter temperatures, keeping my hair healthy and moisturized is a top priority of mine. I was excited to try this, the oil smells pleasant unlike rancid scents if I've experienced in the past. It's important to note that is a pre-wash treatment . It has fluidity that spreads and applies nicely. Often I feel like scalp treatments are too small in product size for price, or maybe I've always just used too much of the product. I've used this 5 times so far, I try to let it penetrate my roots and ends for a good 30 minutes prior to washing . It's important to note that you want to compensate your cleanser, shampoo and follow-up leave in treatments accordingly. I'm optimistically pleased with this product and am further interested in their line of products. I would recommend in conversation or as a highly coveted luxury purchase. I wish the packaging gave more information or tips or a better description . Careful to not contaminate or spoil before use, this will go the distance. I take one dropper and put it in my palms, rub together and smooth the undercoat of my lengths/ends of hair. However, acne prone skin should proceed with caution.
