  • 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 have curly color treated fine hair and this works perfectly! My hair is so healthy and bouncy.
    I love Leonor Greyl!

  2. ana_mosnegutu

    I love all Leonor Greyl products and have been tried and purchased for both myself and my boyfriend quite a few.
    I like this oil in particular as it’s hydrating my highlighted hair really nicely. I use it weekly, pre-shampooing. I once worn it overnight. I like its smell, texture, and it’s easy to apply. I would recommend for those who need to hydrate dry, colored hair.

  3. Xin

    I love the quality and the smell of this oil. I feel my hair and skin are well taken care of whenever I put it on.

  4. Dorothy Golden

    Leaves my hair shiny and less frizzy

  5. Monica Asturias

    I even use it as a body oil when I don’t have any body oil. Love it for softening the hair follicle after bleach or color treatments. A true staple!

  6. Jessica Bowen

    This is by far my favorite hair product from Leonor Greyl. As someone with long curly hair, this product really seems to nourish my curls while detangling and reducing frizz. It works so well for me, as pre-shampoo, that I don’t even need to use styling cream after washing and rinsing my hair in the shower. Definitely recommend trying it out.

  7. Treetop

    I love this oil. I have long, fine, curly/wavy big hair and this oil works great! I wash my hair once a week at most and usually air dry. I will use this oil on towel dried damp hair before styling or throughout the week I apply it to my dry hair to tame the frizz. Love it! One note is that it does harden when it sits, so I just run the bottle under hot water to liquify it.

  8. Anna Hauldren

    Love this one for deep nourishment of my ends. It smells divine and leave the hair smooth and shiny. I use it once a week and it makes a huge difference in the quality of my hair and their health.

  9. Lydia

    🔍L’Huile de Leonor GreylL’Huile de Leonor Greyl is a versatile product that I use as a pre-shampoo but also a few drops in dry hair to tame frizz….

    I have been on the search for a natural hair care brand for a while as my hair has been shedding like crazy. I have spent thousands in the past year trying high end brands including Sisley Paris and Aveda as well as Balmain Paris . Only recently did I stumble across this brand and after reading much reviews I decided to purchase the try it before you but it sets and I will never look at another brand again. I have fallen in love with this line of hair care and especially this pre wash hair oil. I love to oil my hair even though it’s fine and thin it’s just something I have always enjoying doing even as a young girl. This hair oil smells so beautiful and is such a light oil but moisturizing at the same time. I like to leave this on for two plus hours to get the full benefits and I have slept with it in my hair as well . It rinses out clean with no trace of oil residue in my hair. I have been using the sample and have tried it out three times so far and I Will absolutely be buying the full size. It is now a must have in my hair routine.
