Shu Uemura Satin Design Review

Shu Shine: Brilliant Hair in a Bottle

You know how in shampoo commercials, our lovely protagonist seems to have nothing better to do than to sit under lights and bounce her hair around? And it's always glassy and multi-tonal? It's all done through careful manipulation and camera tricks, yet I still secretly hope that some shampoo will create that magic for me.

I still haven't found a shampoo that creates that much shine, but here's the next best thing: Shu Uemura Satin Design ($30). This styling lotion doesn't look like much when it goes on damp hair, but after a blow-dry, it makes hair insanely shiny and glossy. At first I thought it was just my wishful thinking, but a few of the Sugar girls have commented on it — as have dude friends — so now this is part of my blow-drying routine. To see a picture of the super-shiny results,


Eat your heart out, Breck Girl.

OOOH, love your hair! It is so shiney and it looks like it is really soft, too! And I also love your cut!

Thanks for all the comments. You can buy it in Shu Uemura boutiques and at certain salons. I found it for sale at this e-shop but I've never ordered from it, so I don't know what their customer service is like. Glosslizard, I haven't tried it on dry hair. I imagine it works best with blow-drying, though now I have to do an experiment!

Wow, really gorgeous! I'd love to try it, but I air dry my hair. Do you know if it requires blow-drying to activate or will it work without heat?
