Review : Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo Gentle Radiance Cleanser

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo, Shu Uemura Art of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo

Shu Uemura, quite possibly my ultimate all-time favourite beauty brand, were the first to introduce cleansing oils as part of a skincare routine.  Well, did you know they have brought out cleansing oil for hair too?  No, I didn’t know either until a few months ago when I was invited to the opening of Maison Tsumiki, a luxurious hair salon which is one of 4 exclusive Shu Uemura Art of Hair stockists in Victoria.  I got chatting to salon owner Linda Nishimura and she raved about Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo Gentle Radiance Cleanser and my interest was piqued after that night.  Needless to say, I was super delighted when I got a chance to try the product myself :)

Toni & Guy Georges Melbourne blogger event

Happy Friday everyone! Did you know that today is National Good Hair Day? Well, now you do :) Hope you are all having a good hair day! If not, just toss your hair back and forth and roughen it up and call it “Sexy Bed Head” or something :P

My New Toy… (38mm girth & 12 inches long!!)

being pregnant might be all kinds of sexy...

WARNING : This post may contain words of a sexual nature…

Being pregnant might be all kinds of sexy for some people…  But for me, it’s a BIG FAT NO!  The last thing I feel these days is SEXY!  I’m carrying an extra 10kg in weight, walking around with a big bowling ball and feeling so moody, hungry and tired ALL THE TIME!!  And let’s not talk about how under pressure I am to exude that “pregnancy glow” when my skin has gone on a crazy flake-out…and as for that “thick luscious pregnancy sexy hair”, mine is as limp as that Miley Cyrus VMA performance!

So in order to amp up the sex appeal factor, I got myself a new toy…  It’s sizzling hot and smooth with a girth of 38mm and around 12 inches long… ;)  Can you guess what it is?

Tried & Tested Trio : Hair Oils

Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment, L'Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil & L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil

As you all know, I work full-time in a medical-related field where blood, guts and saliva get thrown in the air and being a hygienic freak, I HAVE to scrub my body after work PLUS wash my hair.  Every.  Single.  Day.  That, in hair speak, means that I strip my hair of its natural oils and as a result, I dowse my hair every day in hair oils in an attempt to nourish it.  Here are 3 hair oils I have tried and tested.  Check it out y’all…

Touching Up My Redhead Roots

I’ve had no regrets since I became a total redhead in January when I was holidaying in Hong Kong.  If you’re in HK and you’re looking for a hairdresser in the New Territories, I HIGHLY recommend Kay from Hair Q in Tai Po Plaza who is MAGIC!  I’ve had my hair cut by him twice and it looks amazing when I step out of the salon and it still looks amazing 2.5 months later when it’s grown out with lots of lovely layers and natural volume.  Unfortunately, my hair style might still look good, but my roots were raging to be done a few weeks ago.  Not to worry as I had anticipated this by purchasing L’Oreal Paris Excellence Fashion P66 Intense Spicy Red before I hopped on the plane back to Melbourne.  Here’s how I got on…
