L’Huile de Leonor Greyl
Pre-Shampoo Oil Treatment
Use this oil as a pre-shampoo treatment for dry, over-processed hair. Contains natural UVA/B filters, apply at the pool or beach to protect your hair from the dying and damaging effects of chlorine and salt water.
Apply a small amount to dry length and ends and evenly distribute with a brush. Leave on for 5-10 minutes or overnight, then shampoo out. For sun protection, apply as previously described and reapply as needed.
If product is in solid form, run bottle under warm water to liquify. This does not alter the quality of the product whatsoever.
Pro Tip: Can be used as a leave-in styling product on very dry or frizzy hair. Simply pour 3 drops of oil into your palm, emulsify, and run the brush lightly over your palm prior to brushing hair.

The idea for L’Huile de Leonor Greyl, formerly known as L’Huile de Palme, was first born during a trip to the French West Indies in the 1970s. Finding himself stranded during a hurricane, Mr. Greyl noticed that the rain seemed to run down the leaves of palm trees without ever wetting them. The plant’s incredible properties inspired him to use its oil in a haircare product that would protect hair by forming a waterproof film around each strand. Applied on the beach between swims, in salons as pre-color protection, or at home to repair hair, this oil quickly became a cult favorite. In 2013, palm oil was removed from the formula in favor of two new ingredients: coconut and Mongongo oil.
