- 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 a lovely clean mildly scented oil. I have been using several sample sizes from trial bundles I’d purchased. A little goes a long way. I use pre-shampoo and apply sparingly to dry curls as needed.
This is my all time favorite hair treatment. A must have!
Seriously, the best product for nurturing your hair.
It’s pricey, but it works.

I love this product as it helps tame frizz and makes my hair feel soft and shiny!
Amazing hair oil for blonde damaged hair. Love the smell! The bottle lasts a really long time.
I have not used a hair oil prior to this. I am sensitive to fragrances and many products are just too strong. I was afraid it might be too fragrant after reading the reviews, however, it is as stated by many reviewers, a heavenly scent. Just lovely. My hair is silky, soft and in wonderful condition thanks to LG. Looking forward to traveling again and using it when on the beach or at a fabulous resort pool as others have described. (one can dream)
I use this oil as a full treatment or daily as needed on my dry ends. It is very versatile for all of my hair’s needs.
Love this product. It does what it is intended to do and a lot more, as I shall explain. This caucasian, 60-something-year-old woman swims for over an hour several days a week in a chlorinated indoor pool to stay in shape. Since using the pre-shampoo oil, I find that the chlorine does not ruin my color-treated hair, perhaps because the oil prevents the chlorinated water from getting to my hair (hair dye and chlorinated water do not get along!) Unexpectedly it also made the skin on my hands beautiful! I throw clay on a potter’s wheel and the clay really dries out my skin. This product made my hands amazingly smooth in addition to protecting my colored hair. I would put a drop of oil on my hand, rub both hands together, and then pull it generously through my hair. The oil on my hands made my rough artist’s hands amazingly smooth. It does take a bit longer to wash the oil out of one’s hair, but at least I have hair because my hair no longer breaks and splits as it used to. Great product.

Restored my dry, brittle ends with just a few applications.
I will be making this part of my normal hair care routine.
And I can’t wait to gift it to my friends and family this Christmas, the bottle is just as beautiful as the results it provides!

I love using this as a pre shampoo treatment, I’ll go for a walk or run after I apply it or sleep overnight in it. The smell is amazing and my hair is unbelievably soft. I use it most in the summer because it keeps my hair from being damaged by the sun or pool. I grow my hair out long to donate it and part of what makes it healthy even at waist length is this oil.
This is essential for long, healthy, bouncy hair. I have 3a/3b curls, past my shoulders and I rarely use heat. I use this pre-shampoo oil once a week (let it soak up at least overnight). I haven’t had my hair cut in over a year (thanks, covid) and I am not lying when I say I have no split ends!!! This oil helps keep my hair healthy and strong (as well as my daily lighter hair oil and other products—and heat diffuse very rarely-once a month if that)
