Original Moxie™: Emollience Pre-treatment

Posted by CFYH | June 19, 2012 | Condition, Product Reviews

Hey ladies,


Today I’ll be reviewing the Emollience Pre-treatment, another product from the Original Moxie range (finally…I know, I know)





Here’s some useful information about this pre-treatment:


*It’s a penetrating oil treatment that restores the correct moisture balance to parched hair.


*This product is great for those with extremely dry hair that need help to recover it from harsh environmental conditions or chemical treatments.


*The special ingredients are; 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.


*Smell: Spicy, sweet and minty.


*Best when applied all over dry hair prior to washing or wetting (or just to dry ends) and gently heat to aid penetration.



Note from Rachel, the founder:


I use this on my own hair on a weekly basis during the Winter months, to combat dryness caused by indoor heating and cold air. You can also leave it on overnight for extra conditioning.


Now for my thoughts!


I received the sample size of this product which is quite small, but surprisingly this little tub goes a long way (I’ve it 3 times already, yes over my whole head!) So for those that would like to sample this product before buying the full size, go ahead. There’s a enough for you to use more than once and make your judgement on whether your hair likes the product or not.


This product turns into  oil form as you apply it to your hair:








However, as soon as I unscrewed the lid the first thing that hit me was the smell…now it’s not bad, its just not as pleasant as it could be. The smell of this product has been described as sweet, spicy & minty. As some of you already know, my nose doesn’t take too well to minty hair products. Also, I generally just prefer my hair products to have a more sweet, fruity smell.


On the other hand, one thing I do like about this product (and the other Original Moxie products) is that this little pot definitely did what it said it would.  I made sure I used this on a day my hair was at it’s driest, so you could see the before & after effects. More interestingly, despite the combination of the oils & butters within this product…it provided shine and softness without that greasy feeling.









This is a great pre-treatment option for the ladies that find their hair hair gets extremely dry or for those with colour treated hair, as it did add help add some extra conditioning & shine.



I’d love if this product was available unscented or in more than one scent


Would I purchase this?

Maybe if my hair was to ever suffer from serious dryness, especially in the colder months…however for my hair it’s not essential.


Marks out of 5?

3/5– Once again, the smell was my biggest let down


Where to get it from?
