shu uemura's Art of Hair is a classic line of styling products formulated with the purest natural ingredients that lets you prep and style your hair effortlessly. I got the chance to test out out two of the products and they left my hair looking about as close to supermodel perfection as my long, straight locks are ever going to get. First, I spritzed on the Depsea Moisture Foundation - it's a prep for hair that gives it moisture and light conditioning, while detangling and improving manageability. (I like to think of it as the grown up version of No More Tangles). I'm a big fan of sprays like these because my long hair can get super knotty if I'm not careful, and this is one of the best ones I've used. I also like that it didn't weigh my hair down or make it greasy - both side effects I can do without. When I was done blowdrying, I finished off my look by using the Silk Oil Camellia Smoothing Fluid. You can use this on towel-dried hair for control and protection during styling, or you can use it on dry hair as a weightless finishing gloss, which is what I did. It left my hair shiny and smooth and just (for lack of a better word) prettier. (Finishing glosses fall under that category of products I always forget to use and then when I do, I'm like, "Why don't you always use this? It's so much better!")
