  • For a pre-shampoo treatment: Apply 1 to 2 capfuls of L’Huile de Leonor Greyl to your dry length and ends and evenly distribute using a natural bristle brush. Leave on for at least 10 minutes or overnight before shampooing.
  • For protection from the sun and chlorinated water: Apply to dry hair as previously described and reapply as needed.
  • The oil might solidify in cool temperatures. If that happens, simply run warm water over the closed bottle until the product liquifies.

Pro Tip: Use as a leave-in styling product for very dry or frizzy hair. Pour 3 drops into your palm, emulsify and run the brush lightly over your palm before brushing hair.

The idea for L’Huile de Leonor Greyl, formerly known as L’Huile de Palme, was born during a Greyl family trip to the French West Indies in the 1970s. Finding himself stranded during a hurricane, Jean-Marie Greyl noticed that the rain streamed down the leaves of palm trees without really penetrating them. The plant’s incredible properties inspired him to use its oil in a pre-shampoo treatment that could 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 sustainably-sourced ingredients: coconut and mongongo oil.

    I’ve been using this oil for years. It is a multi use product: pre-shampoo, overnight treatment, swimming/sun protectant, scalp moisturizer. I’ve recently begun using the oil to slick my hair into a bun. When used on the skin, it imparts a delicious scent. My fave multi-use product ever!

    Great hair oil. Makes my thin hair soft and healthy. And the smell is heaven

    I never knew that I was missing out on until I got a travel size as a gift. First, I have not even ever heard of “pre-shampoo “ so that caught my attention! I did my homework, made sure I applied it correctly (and left it on overnight as I’m sure my hair needed it) and WOW! Like overnight, my hair was so much healthier, shinier and manageable!! It was amazing! Nothing like it! I highly recommend!! Yes, the price can seem a bit hard to get past at first, but you’ll see a little can go a long way, and your hair!! You’ll see the results and know it’s worth it!

    This oil smells luxurious, but not overpoweringly so. I have thin, fine, shoulder length highlighted hair. I used 3 capfuls and in hindsight I feel that was too much for me and 1-2 is more appropriate. I had concerns that my fine hair would look greasy and limp and this would be too heavy for me-I was totally wrong! this washed out beautifully but there was a lasting softness and shine from the product once my hair was dry. I’ve only used it once so far but plan to incorporate into my routine as a weekly product. I have thinning hair and noticed far less fall out in my shower drain and when combing my hair after using this product. This is a really nice oil and I am going to use it for sun protection at the pool, too.

    This has totally changed my hair! Can’t be without it. It grows faster now, is shinier, healthier, stronger, with less frizz, and overall feels luxurious. This is a desert island pick – please never change the formula, LG!!
