- 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 used this for so many years. I’ll change it up every once in a while, but find myself always coming back to it.
Absolutely love this oil! It makes my hair feel so soft and light. It deeply hydrates my incredibly dry hair beautifully. The fragrance is elegant as well.
I love this product. I just don’t think the scent is very luxurious… It reminds me of a cherry cough drop. Besides expecting a more luxurious smell, I love the product and the packaging. Just be sure to avoid getting the cap in hot water if trying to warm the product, because my cap became a bit deformed looking from contact with hot water.
All my life I am nourishing my fair childlike hair, looking for products that work wonders.
This treatment is the one!!!
This product is amazing. A must have for me. I leave it overnight. Wash my hair thoroughly the next day. My hair looks fantastic,. I wasn’t blessed with thick long locks, I have fair thin childlike hair. All my life I am nourishing it, looking for products that work wonders.
This treatment is the one!!!
Truly a miracle oil for conditioning my hair! It’s just about all I need!

I have curly hair which tends to get dry from heat styling. this pre shampoo product works amazing on my hair ..
great product for summer beach hair , I leave it in all day .
I have struggled with the texture and moisture of my hair for a year now. Adding this treatment before shampooing has made a tremendous difference in how my hair DOES NOT matte up after wetting it down. A HUGE blessing. The cherry on the top of this blessing is that this oil smells divine and I feel pampered!

Our whole family of fine haired folks use this as a pre shampoo treatment and a post shampoo leave in on dry ends. It is absolutely perfect for undone. Air dried looks and people for whom every conditioner is usually “too heavy.”

This oil is fantastic, the smell is perfect, the oil is light, and washes out leaving the perfect moisture back in your hair. My hair looks healthier when I use this.
