- 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 oil I have ever tried. Works the best as a pre shampoo treatment. I use a very small amount and sleep with it in my hair. When I wash my hair it’s soft and full. The smell is amazing. I always bring this with me on vacations and use more in the summer as it repairs any damage from the sun or pool. I have been growing my hair out and The integrity of my hair over all looks and feels so much better since using this.

This has quickly become one of my favorite hair products. Last summer, I used it everyday before going in the pool or hot tub. My color stayed true, and my hair quality and texture were preserved. I use it as a pre-treatment, an overnight treatment, layered with the Jasmine Mask, when sitting in the sun, and, as I mentioned, while swimming. My hair has never looked better. I highly recommend L’Huile de Leonor Greyl and will never be without it.

LOVE this stuff. It’s the best for sun protection/detangling overnight. Smells phenomenal. Such a nice treat at the end of the day. Definitely a MUST in the “self care”.

Beautiful product for beautiful hair! The smell is intoxicating, I love it. I work it through my ends and sleep in a braid, then wash it out in the morning and my hair is super soft after. I have thick, coarse hair and also use a little here and there as a styling oil to calm down my frizz. Everyone at my salon uses it and now I’m a fan too.

The “ holy Greyl”
I love the way this Smells !
I had never used a pre-shampoo …treatment before
Sometimes if I’m washing my hair in the morning I sleep with a ponytail loaded with it in my hair l! My hair comes out so good the next day and I love to smell it on my pillow case❤️
Transformative for my aging dry hair. I put a little on before styling each day
I apply the oil twice every week before going for a bike ride, and shampoo after returning. It leaves my hair nurtured, soft, and healthy looking and feeling, to the point that my coiffure asks what I use to have such hair at my age. I just wish Leonor Greyl would make a shampoo for gray hair as well…
I have full, wavy mixed Asian/White hair that is always frizzy in the tropical climate that I live, & gets damaged by all the time I spend in the ocean. I use this for smoothing apres-washing & conditioning (also Leonor Greyl). This is the only product that leaves my hair silky & untangled after surfing if I apply prior, without creating any slippery film on my body while surfing. I have very oily hair so if I don’t wash my hair every day then my hair gets slick looking, but that is generally not a problem b/c I workout everyday so I wash everyday. Luxurious but subtle scent.

L’Huile de Leonor Greyl is by far the best Hydrating Oil on Earth. I have been growing out my hair for two years. I’m holding on to this one for Amazing results on my dry and flyaway tresses.
