I’ve been dabbling with Cowing 3 years Shampoos for co-shaving help me a lot on trips when two cans of shampoo and balm in baggage are replaced by one universal remedy.
Oribe has been pondering the purchase of cream shampoo since its launch. The description was beautiful, embarrassed by the harsh price. But Black Friday did the job, and Oribe shampoo with a good discount ended up in my bathroom.
The second purchase was Shu Uemura oil, which I bought specifically for a trip to the sea. Oil promised to protect hair from the sun and salt.
I share how these two tools work in tandem. The experiment was conducted for 5 weeks in the conditions of the Russian winter and 4 weeks in the tropics. During the tests, not a single scalp was removed using only this pair of hair products.
Oribe Cleansing Creme for Moisture and Control - Beauty Source Cleansing Cream Shampoo
No preludes - the best quality shampoo for co-tested from the tried and tested. Because he:
Cleans perfectly . If you do not use styling products, with short hair it is enough to wash your hair 1 time in 3 days. Leaves a pleasant feeling of “breathing” scalp.
Highly moisturizes. On the packaging of the shampoo it is written that if the hair does not have enough moisture, you need to additionally use a mask or balm. In fact, I did not need an additional balm and mask even after the sun and salt water. Oribe did a great job with both cleansing and conditioning.
Pleasant chypre citrus aroma
Thick creamy texture (it is better to put the bottle upside down)
Complete lack of foam.
The disadvantage of Oribe Cleansing Creme is one, but noticeable. It is consumed at the speed of a hair balm, but it costs like a good shampoo + balm. That is, the purchase is not economically justified.
Duration of use - 1.5 months
Price - approx.4000 rub for 250 ml

Will I buy more? Not for home use: Oribe is beautiful, but more expensive than the equally worthy shampoo and balm from the Keurastase Aura Botanica series. For trips to the gym, it’s definitely more convenient to take Oribe, so I plan to repeat the purchase.
Shu Uemura Essence Absolue - Nourishing and Protective Hair Oil with Camellia
The essence made a double impression.
From the pros:
It does not oily and does not make the hair heavier - on my short ones I mistakenly periodically apply 3 presses (although one is enough), but the hair does not look greasy after such oversights 😝
"Fluffy" smooths out quite well
It fulfills its promises to “protect”: hair did not really fade and remained soft after a long stay at sea and sun
It smells great
It would seem that something else is necessary for happiness, however, there are nuances :
Is it possible to consider oil a product in which out of 8 components there is only one - camellia oil and the one in the third position on the list?
The product contains silicones.
(carp) After the cap, the magic of smoothed hair disappears. They do not start to stand on end, but the hairstyle is not so perfect.
Duration of use - 1.5 months
Price - approx.1000 rub for 30 ml

If you compare Shu Uemura with Oribe oil (my standard), then Shu loses both in composition and in the quality of smoothing hair, but in general the product is decent.
