With all of the recommendations available in our Oscar Oscar Store, your new hair regime is just a click away!

 


1. Jacky Chan, Chadstone:

Fav product: Shu Uemura Essence Universal Balm

Why do you love the product? I love this multi-purpose balm infused with Camellia oil that can be used on the hair and body to soften and give you a silky smooth finish. It’s got an easy to use applicator and it creates all day volume. It also absorbs excess oil to prevent unnecessary hair washing

When do you use it? I use this product all the time! It can be used on freshly blow dried hair or second day hair.

How do you use it? Apply a pea sized amount, emulsify and apply where needed, with the brush it is applied to the scalp to give volume

Bonus: This one smells delicious and fits perfectly in a handbag!

 

2. Nathan Armagnacq, Chadstone:

Fav product: Shu Uemura Shu Ultimate Reset Treatment

Why do you love the product? Ultimate Reset leaves your hair feeling so much stronger and smelling amazing.

When do you use it? Use both of these after shampooing.

How do you use it? Apply the Ultimate Reset Treatment as you would with your conditioner. Leave in for 5-10 minutes, rinse and apply your favourite hair oil.

 

 

3. Nathan Armagnacq, Chadstone:

Fav product: Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Hair Oil

Why do you love the product? Essence Absolue dries into the hair without leaving an oily residue and resets the moisture levels of the hair.

When do you use it? Use this after your Ultimate Reset Treatment or after normal washing.

How do you use it? Apply 1-2 pumps of Absolue Oil and rake through the hair, then blowdry and style as normal.

 

 

4. Chloe Tu Whatu, Highpoint: 

Fav Product: Shu Uemura Muroto Volume Hydro Texturizing Mist

Why do you love the product? I use it to amplify texture and volume in my blowdry and to give fullness and control to my curtain bangs. 

When do you use it? I use this in freshly washed, damp hair before blow drying.

How do you use it? Mist 7-8 sprays all over your hair and style as normal.

 

 

5. Tania Lonardo, Southland: 

Fav product: Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo

Why do you love the product? This shampoo is so gentle and non-stripping that my hair is manageable before I even condition it. It deeply and gently cleanses and removes dirt and impurities from the hair and scalp, and it hydrates without overdoing it. Hair is never left greasy or feeling dirty, but instead feels nourished, moisturized, volumized, balanced and soothed. Furthermore, my hair is left soft, supple and shiny when I use this shampoo. 

When do you use it? Ideal to use as your daily shampoo or as a weekly pre-cleansing treatment

How do you use it? Apply a coin-size amount of the Cleansing Oil Shampoo to wet hair. Massage into the scalp using fingers and palms. Rinse thoroughly. For oilier scalps, repeat steps.

 

6. Tania Lonardo, Southland: 

Fav product: Shu Uemura Color Lustre Treatment

Why do you love the product? This bad boy looks as though it’s hiding millions of tiny diamonds, as when you open its lid, the creamy viscous product looks almost luminescent and shimmery.

When do you use it? I leave it on for a few minutes whilst I carry on with washing, before rinsing away completely. Washing, done. The hair smells incredible and feels like silk. 

How do you use it? I grab a tiny handful, literally just pinching a chunk with my fingertips to then run all over my lengths and nearer to the roots, without touching the scalp. 

Pro Tip: For extra nourishment, use the mask in place of a conditioner after shampooing once a week.

 

7. Cathy Devlin, St Kilda: 

Fav product: Kérastase Blond Absolu Range

Why do you love the product? If you are blonde or have pre-lightened hair, the Blond Absolu Range by Kérastase is an essential to provide deep ultraviolet treatment, while hydrating sensitised hair. Unlike other violet shampoos on the market, it protects hair from oxidation, instantly neutralising unwanted warmth and boosts colour luminosity.

When do you use it? I would recommend using the shampoo every second hair wash for someone wanting cool tones, or for someone wanting creamy brighter tones I recommend every 5 hair washes. 

How do you use it? Pre shampoo with Shu Cleansing Oil Shampoo to start to remove any build-up. Then use Blonde Absolue Ultra Violet Shampoo for your second shampoo before conditioning.
