Ultimate Reset

Shu Uemura has introduced Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset to their family of luxury hair care styling products, cleansers, conditions and treatments. Ultimate Reset has been specially formulated to care for and restore very damaged hair. Ultimate Reset Shampoo provides intense care without weighing hair down, meaning it’s light and airy so you do not need to worry about greasy weighed down locks! The Ultimate Reset Conditioner provides a high level of care, bringing softness, suppleness, and strength while the treatment mask provides shine, resistance and up to 24-hour discipline to tame wild, frizzy, damaged hair. Shu Uemura Ultimate Rest will transform locks that have been chemically damaged or have experienced intense heat styling.

The Benefits of Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset

Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset reflects the Kintsugi Philosophy which translates to ‘golden repair,’ originated as the Japanese art form for embracing damage of repairing pottery using lacquer resin laced with gold or silver make a new product gorgeous, saying goodbye to the original design by enhancing it’s new and developed look. This method understands that a piece is more beautiful for having been broken, very similar to the philosophy of wabi-sabi which is becoming a ‘thing’ at the moment. This philosophy is now a way of living In Japan, flaws are seen positively so embrace them!

So what is this cutting-edge magic formula we hear you ask? Well, it’s actually rice! Rice is known for being an ancient ingredient in Japanese beauty as a symbol of pure perfection. Rice bran has been used to soften hair and skin for centuries so it’s guaranteed to ensure your locks are supple and rich in softness from the use of this key ingredient. Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset will restore and revitalise damaged locks and as the Japanese say…’nuka bihin’; beautiful by the rice.

The power of rice extract

  • It’s protecting and known for its moisture retaining properties- it’s hydroscophic, meaning it’s long biopolymers capture moisture.
  • A powerful antioxidant
  • Rice promotes collagen synthesis to restore cells damaged by UV rays
  • Increase permeability and elasticity to the hair

A cutting-edge formula comes from innovative farming. The rice bran in Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset is harvested in Hyogo, Japan and is farmed for its incredibly high quality and sustainability. The rice is harvested through the Duck-Cultivation system (to reduce chemical pesticide fertiliser): an Asian eco-friendly farming system which sees ducks feeding on insects and weeds to then naturally fertilise the rice plants. Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset not only restores, protects and smoothes your untameable hair but it also helps biodiversity and protection of natural habitats. The ‘duck-cultivation’ is not only eco-friendly but multi-award winning after being reconsigned as an innovative form of sustainable farming.

Shu Uemura | The Science

Every Shu Uemura Art of Hair product contains ingredients from corners of the world to bring out the best of beauty for your hair. As well as these fabulous ingredients, obviously there still needs to be a science behind the product to ensure it works! Shu Uemura has tried and tested formulas for the last couple of years to ensure Ultimate Reset is fit for purpose. Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset contains two new developments to restore, repair, moisturise/ hydrate the hair, Co-Emulsion & Si-Emulsion. These particles are extremely small, which provides an even spread of product across the whole head but without weighing hair down…the fabulous key element of this Shu Uemura hair care collection.

Not only does Shu Uemura come packed with a cutting-edge formula, supports the environment and your hair…it also comes in beautiful packaging with a luxury fragrance. Ultimate Reset has top notes of orange, peach and orange blossom, middle notes of jasmin, ylang and geranium and base notes of benzoin, tonka bean, sandalwood, vanilla and musk to complete your cleanse, condition and treatment experience.

To sum up the Shu Uemura Ultimate Reset collection in five ways Paul Edmonds London would say the benefits are…

  1. Moisture! The key ingredient to healthy and cared for locks.
  2. Intense care without the weight
  3. Protection because once it’s fixed…let’s make it last
  4. Strength for strong, relentless locks.
  5. Suppleness for overall gorgeousness!
