"Sleekeazy's Hair Potion is a potion used to tame and style hair, most particularly bushy or unruly hair."
— Description[src]

Sleekeazy's Hair Potion and Scalp Treatment was a hair care potion and scalp treatment that was invented by Fleamont Potter.[1][3][2] It was originally sold with the slogan "Two drops tames even the most bothersome barnet".

Noted as being suitable for all hair types on its label,[1] it was particularly effective at taming bushy, unruly hair, allowing it to be styled "sleek."[3] However, the label apparently cautioned against use of the product by redheads, stating it would have "unique results" for them.[1]

The potion was manufactured in China.[1] Its listed ingredients were Gomas Barbadensis, Asian Dragon Hair, and Petroleum Jelly.[1]


"Hermione's hair was bushy again; she confessed to Harry that she had used liberal amounts of Sleekeazy's Hair Potion on it for the ball,"
— Hermione Granger's use of the potion[src]

Fleamont Potter was said to have quadrupled the family's wealth by inventing Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion and selling the company at a vast profit when he retired.[2]

Hermione Granger apparently used fairly large amounts of this potion when she went to the Yule Ball with Viktor Krum, the Durmstrang champion for the Triwizard Tournament, although she later said that it was too much trouble to use every day.[3]

Ron Weasley also owned and apparently used this product.[1]
