- 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.
This is the best hair treament in my opinion in the world. If I would had known about this oil I would not have cut my hair. My hair was burned and dry from a hair coloring gone bad and This oil saved my hair. I love it and gave it for christmas to some of my family and frieds.

I couldn’t wait to purchase my Huile de Palme oil!! Once I received it I was in heaven. I have coarse hair and it transformed my dry hair into silky tresses. And it left my hair smelling amazing!! I highly recommend this product to anyone who has dry damaged hair, or simply wants to protect it from ocean water or chlorine. Happy hair, happy me!! Love my LG and can’t wait to purchase other products. : )
This is great as a pre-shampoo treatment. It helps soften your hair regardless of the hair type. You can also use this before coloring your hair. I highly recommend this product.
Simply the best! I started with this travel size, not knowing much about the product but it had been recommended to me. A little goes a long way with this stuff! It lasted quite a while, and was great for traveling, gym, etc. I just purchased the full size bottle (of course). Love what it does to my hair, the scent – everything about it! Don’t be scared about it being an “oil” – it’s not greasy at all when you shampoo it out, and I have thin, fine hair. Try it!

I have to share how amazing this product line is! My hair would never be in the shape it is now without Leonor Greyl products. Shiny, healthy and full of body. Who would have thought? I’ve always had flat, dull hair – so glad my stylist recommended this line. The Huile de Leonor Greyl pre-shampoo oil treatment is heavenly – both in the smell and the way it makes my hair look and feel..Definitely worth every penny!

I’m thrilled to have Leonor Greyl at my Beverly Hills Salon! Even though I have my own product line, I find Leonor Greyl to be the perfect compliment. My favorite “go-to” products are Eclat Naturelle (fantastic for molding & styling), Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice (lots of beautiful volume), and Huile de Leonor Greyl pre-shampoo oil treatment (truly a cult classic that I can’t live without).

My stylist recommended this product because my hair was damaged by all the coloring I’ve done. It’s really helped repair the ends of my hair and overall has made it easier to manage. It looks and feels great! Very nice product, 5 stars.

I just returned from vacation and I have to say this was the BEST product I had with me. I felt like this really protected my hair from the sun and salt water and I came back with hair just as soft and healthy as when I left. This product was recommended by a friend and I’m so pleased with how well it works. Can’t wait to check out some of your other products!!

Huile de Palme is so incredibly awesome! I was first introduced to this product when I got a hair and scalp treatment at a spa in Napa! I have super dry hair, so they parted and massaged it in to my hair for 30 minutes! It was heaven. I left there and didn’t purchase it then, so happy to have a source now! It also has UVA/UVB protection for when you’re in the sun. I put it on before going out in the sun or in the pool and leave it on as long as possible, then shampoo out. I really see a difference in my hair. It’s shiny, soft and beautiful. I recommend this product for anyone with dry hair.

LOVE IT! This product is a must have for anyone who has dry hair. I use it 3-4 times a week before I shampoo, and sometimes I even sleep with it! I’m going to Mexico soon and will be sure to have this with me. It’s perfect to put on before you go out in the sun or the pool. It keeps your hair really protected. And, it does not weigh my hair down at all. It’s super lightweight and rinses completely clean. I couldn’t live without it. Seriously…my hair is totally transformed!
