Shu Uemura debuted the Art of Hair line this year, and included in the collection is the Satin Design White Tea Polishing Milk, a versatile leave-in meant to finish blow dried hair. Since I just got a brand new hair dryer, I was excited to try the product with a fresh blow drying.
I’m a hair abuser. I color, flat iron, blow dry, go swimming capless, and generally mortify my hair by living under the desert sun. So for me, a product like Redken Anti-Snap is a dream.

Sure, there were a few red flags. It said “conditioning” before shampoo, as if the creators were under the delusion that ANY shampoo was moisturizing enough to entirely replace the role of conditioner. Worse, it said “shampoo and body wash”. Any combination product is generally terrible at both jobs. But the shopper in me took over, forgot that if Jessica Simpson’s image isn’t enough to sell it, it’s bad, and took this little gem home.
