Oil Fights Oil, And Frizz


When Molton Brown entered the hair category last year, it didn’t mess around. With four different lines of shampoos and accompanying conditioners plus a host of styling products and targeted treatments, the company managed to harness all of the power from its luxury British skincare products and make it available to our common, American tresses in need of a bit of upper-crust pampering. Stopping by the Molton Brown lounge at the Bryant Park Hotel this weekend in between doing battle backstage, I discovered a particularly standout product in the line, worth mentioning for the dried-out, sun-fried masses recovering from a few too many weekends spent on the beach this summer. Working off the same principle as a cleansing facial oil—the idea being that oil emulsifies to remove excess oil for a deep cleaning action you can’t get with soap alone—Molton Brown’s Depth Charge Seednoir Prewash Hair-Therapy is a great scalp treatment that also doubles as an essential oil-packed moisture mask for split ends. Massimo (that’s first name only), the on-hand stylist, recommended the elixir as a great pre-workout treatment: Massage into scalp, then comb through the hair shaft, coating the ends so that the heat you generate while getting your heart rate up activates the revitalizing and restorative properties of the product. (Side note: It also smells unbelievable.)
