Hair that suffers from chronic dryness needs an extra boost to regain its luster. Enriched with Cupuaçu Butter & Castor Oil, Emollience™ breaks the cycle to restore your hair’s natural shine and elasticity. After just one use, hair is noticeably softer, silkier and more vibrant. That’s Mmm-hmmm-mollience!
A penetrating oil treatment that restores the correct moisture balance to parched hair.
Extremely dry hair that needs help to recover from harsh environmental conditions or chemical treatments.
Cupuaçu Butter, a thick, rich emollient packed with phytosterols, possesses a high capacity for water absorption and helps dry hair hold onto moisture. Castor Oil provides unbeatable shine and creates a protective barrier around the hair shaft. Click for a full list of ingredients.
Spicy, sweet and minty.
Apply all over to dry hair prior to washing or wetting (or just to dry ends) and gently heat to aid penetration.
Pair with Oasis™ Moisture Gel for maximum restorative effects!
Though Emollience works extremely well on hair that is fine to medium texture, it can have trouble penetrating very coarse, or low-porosity, hair. Try a Mini first if you are not sure whether Emollience is right for you.

This is the best moisturizing treatment ever. I was expecting to get the same results as a conditioner. But this surpasses the conditioning that colestorel does for your hair. This product gets directly into the shafts of your hair with a deep penetration. It's not a surface product but a penetrating product that last until the next wash.

I have type 4b/c hair and I could barely finish twisting my hair before I began to review this product! This product is simply DELICIOUS. After a stint of protective styling, I decided to try out emollience for dry detangling and as a pre-poo. It will literally pain me to wash it out. My hair immediately felt its softest. I have never had a product melt in my hair the way this has! I am too pleased! Big Thank You to Rachel and her OM team!!!

I have type 4B/C hair and was absolutely amazed at the outcome of my hair. It's as if my hair texture changed with all the added moisture. I love the way it made my hair feel. Adding the Moisture Gel, twisting before bedtime and adding rods at the ends gave me a beautiful soft hair ever. My only regret is that I waited too long to try the product. It has become my staple product for awesome textures and just beautiful hair all over.

I purchased this product as a prepoo treatment. However, when I put it on my 4C hair, it just absorbed it. My hair felt moisturized, so I didn't wash it out. I really like this Emollience treatment.

The ingredients are great in this product.Can anyone recommend something to add to this list of ingredients to boost its conditioning power? I used this product twice and each time my hair felt no difference. The second time I put the product on wet hair and it detangled my hair but that was it. And the shampoo did not get it out so i had this very heavy butter on my hair until I could shampoo it again. Also, can anyone tell me if mountainous, arid weather would affect the conditioning properties of the product. I live in Colorado with type 4 hair. I have combo-4A, 4B, 4C.
The ingredients are great in this product.
Rachel Says: "Sounds like you may have low-porosity hair, which does not respond well to heavy butters and oils. This is particularly true for Castor Oil, which is featured prominently in Emollience. Try Twist Mist for a lighter, more penetrating treatment."

I have 4a hair that I wear in a wash and go or two strand twist style. Despite being thick, my hair is extremely fine. This product ensures that I don't lose a single strand when taking my hair down and preparing to wash it. It smells great and add tons of shine so if the "taking down" process takes longer than I anticipated, I can always pull my hair back into another style. I've made this product a staple.

I ordered this product in the mini size. I have very thick long natural hair and I still have enough product to use as a hot oil treatment. It is now my stable hot oil treatment, no longer will I need to buy four separate oils to blend together in a bottle, no more messiness with oil running down my face. Emollience makes my scalp feel great and my hair shine without weighing it down. I love this product and will recommend and continue using it as long as the ingredients doesn't change. Thank you OM!!!! Awesome product...

I must admit, I never would have purchased this product on my own. I am super busy and barely have time for a shower on a regular basis, let alone a "pre-treatment". Just another step to hassle with and it probably wouldn't do much anyway.
WRONG WRONG WRONG!
I have NEVER used a product that caused such a transformation in the texture of my hair. I have very long,fine 3A curls with bleached, damaged ends. It's not totally fried, but it does feel a little crispy on the bleached ends.
Rachel included a sample of this in an order and I gave it a try. I slathered it on my ends, a little afraid of the thick texture, but open minded.
The first thing I noticed was the fragrance. I'm the crazy lady sniffing the shampoo at the grocery store because I am so sensitive to fragrances and cannot tolerate some heavily fragranced products so near my face. Emollience smelled WONDERFUL. After I finished with my hair, rubbed some into my cuticles and other dry skin spots because it smelled so good.
The next thing I noticed was that my hair soaked it all up in less than an hour.
After I washed my hair and let it air dry, I was absolutely amazed at how soft my crispy ends felt. And my hair was shiny all over!
And I found that it worked great as a styling product. My hair is so fine that it can be a little fly away. I rubbed a tiny dab of Emollience onto my damp hair and it added just the right amount of control to keep my curls smooth, soft and shiny. I had zero frizz and my hair did not feel greasy, slick, or stiff and didn't look oily in the least.
This product is amazing. It is totally worth the extra time and effort. I used every single last bit of my sample and am back to buy more.
Where have you been all my life, Original Moxie?!?

I am an admitted Product Junkie and hair obsessed natural. I love my crown and I take great pride in finding the best, most natural, most effective, and most moisturizing products for my hair. Although I bounce around with alot of products to pre treat my hair before I wash it, I happened to take a chance and purchase two sample jars of emollience (I have a lot of hair and it is very very thick, 3C mostly ) to try out. As SOON as I began to put it on my hair, I could feel it softening and penetrating. I decided to hotbox it with an overnight baggie for maximum treatment. I kept it on for about 8-10 hours total, then sat down, ready for my usual 3 hour detangling routine. THIS TIME WAS DIFFERENT. For the first time, the VERY first time since I've been natural, I detangled, a DRY detangle at that, in about one hour and twenty minutes. However long Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is. And that, is life changing in itself. I usually need to use water, oil, conditioner, my fingers, and a wide tooth comb to fully detangle my hair after 2 weeks, even though I keep it in protective styles mostly. To be able to detangle so quickly, with my fingers, and to feel the softness and pliability of my hair, was just, the best thing ever. After washing it out and continuing my routine, I was absolutely sold on this product and immediately purchased the full size that evening. I plan to snag the Oasis gel too, and try that combination. OM products work WELL. They do what they say they will do, and I haven't been disappointed yet. Now OM Emollience is part of my staple product line and as I keep trying other samples, I'm adding more OM to my must have stash, and you should too!

This is seriously the cream of the crop. Some would describe it as the ONE. But, you see that's the thing its not just "the one" because it does much much more than that. You can use this product for so many things, and honestly it perfects all it touches. Let me explain. Emollience is described as a "penetrating treatment" and yes that is what exactly what it is. Most buttery products like this just sit on top, but this goes below the surface to moisturize your strands. Not only can you use it as described on the package (as a pre- treatment), but you can use it afterwards as a leave-in/styler, add it to "cheapie" conditioners (and transform them into high-end conditioner results), but even if you put it on your strands the night before you wake up and find that your hair has absorbed them. Truly amazing, and to top it all off I love the scent. I would describe it as a sagey, and smokey but sweet scent-very mysterious. LOVE it.
