I hope you are all well! So as most of you know, I am on a long road of hair recovery. I wont go into too much detail, but hair damage and loss has been a big issue for me over the past two years. I am constantly on the lookout for new ways to pamper my hair, and when I heard about Shu Uemura's Art of Hair Ultimate Remedy Line, I knew I'd have to give it a go!
This collection of products is designed to nurse even the most helpless cases of hair back to health. The products use ceramide as a sort of cement to repair the hair fibre from within. It works to recover solidity and strength of the hair while also nourishing and smoothing for a glossy and soft finish! Here is the sciencey bit: Ceramide is a lipid naturally present in the hair fibre, that binds the cuticle and cortex together, providing the hair with protection, resistance, and impermeability. When applied to ultra damaged hair in high concentration, it penetrates the hair fibre and restores it's solidity and strength from within! This leave the hair with exceptional shine, tone and body, ceramide also prevents the loss of proteins and protects against any risk of future external damage. Pretty incredible right?
The Ultimate Remedy Shampoo with its Lotus Infusion and ceramide 1000PPM (parts per million, so the higher the PPM the stronger the product) gently purifies the hair without any irritation to the scalp. On first shampoo I found there was little to no lather with the product, on second shampoo there was a world of lather! The scent is just exquisite, and that is an understatement. I think if heaven had a hairdresser, their products would smell like this!
The Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Conditioner is again infused with the lotus and ceramide 1500PPM, so stronger again in comparison to the shampoo. This restores nourishment whilst maintaining the softness and flexibility of the hair. I applied four small pumps of the product on to my hair and left it to work its magic for 3-4 minutes, which was fine with me, it gave me time to enjoy smelling my hair. it was easy to rinse out, and then I moved onto the last step!
The Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Treatment is a stunning rich creme masque, and oh my word does it feel like you are in a spa somewhere when you are using this! The result after using this 3000PPM are visible immediately, and leave you with what I can only describe as feeling like you have had a hair transplant! My hair went from brittle and damaged to soft, glossy and strong. I honestly could not believe the difference after one use! Just incredible and I am totally in love.
My final thoughts? I'm blown away by this collection. It truly is incredible. If I had to choose one product? It would have to be the Extreme Restoration Treatment. Out of all the masks, and treatments I have tried on my haircare journey, this one lands in first place and really sort of deserves a special place on a velvet cushion somewhere because its just that good! I absolutely recommend you give these a go if you are in the market for a new hair regime. Perfection for the hair!
That's it for now ladies,
I hope you enjoyed!
