My scalp is temperamental. On some days, it feels perfectly fine, while on others — especially in the colder months — it feels uncomfortably tight. Lately, when I've felt my scalp start to act up, I've been reaching for the new Anytime Anywhere Scalp and Hair Milk Oil ($14) from hairstylist Kristin Ess.

When I first got my hands on it, I immediately shook up the bi-phase formula of hydrating avocado, olive, jojoba, and castor oils and skin-softening vitamin B5 and applied it directly to my scalp with the dropper. As I massaged the liquid in, in seconds, I noticed that my scalp felt less itchy and that the milk-oil blend didn't leave my hair greasy like I had expected it to. I then dispensed one dropper-full of the liquid into my hands and rubbed it into my ends. It defined my medium-coarse waves without being too heavy.

Now I rely on Kristin Ess's new milk oil to calm my scalp — every time and every place. See Kristen Ess's most soothing creation ahead.
