  • 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 just tried Huile de Leonor Greyl, I left it in overnight and my hair loved it! I’ve bought several other products and back today to get two more. LOVE LOVE LOVE these products

    I alternate Huile de Leonor Greyl with the beauty oil. Leonor Greyl oil solidifies when temperatures get a bit cooler but running the bottle under warm water, or simply putting a dollop into one’s palm, liquifies it. I does have a stronger scent, which I do not like but most people will. Most importantly: it works superbly on one’s hair!

    It is also an excellent oil for dry, fragile, colored, fine hair. It serves as a UV filter and nurtures one’s hair prior to shampooing. I put in on upon awakening, eat breakfast, then shower and shampoo. My hair is about ear-length and needs only about 1/8 tsp oil rubbed into my palms and dry ends of hair, then brushed with boar-bristle brush.

    My hair stylist has been asking what I have done to improve the health of my hair. It looks so much shinier and stronger. She knows how troubled I have been because of my scalp issues (folliculitis, itching, oiliness but dry hair).

    I can only recommend both oils!

    This is hands down the best hair oil I have used. Makes my hair so soft and shiny and the scent is lovely. I have seen such a big difference in my hair.

  4. Olga

    I got a sample of Huile de Leonor and it’s amazing! Made my hair shiny and healthy looking! So happy I found this hair care line!

  5. Annie

    This product makes all the difference in the world to my fine, long blonde (highlighted) hair. I apply it to the ends at night, comb it through the length of my hair and go to bed. It absorbs so well that I can almost get away without a shampoo, and if I’m going to be lounging, exercising or just running errands the next day, I will do exactly that. Normally, though, I shampoo the morning after a treatment. This oil keeps hair smooth, healthy and shiny, the trifecta for beautiful hair!

  6. Sylvie

    I’ve been using the wonderful Huile de Leonor Greyl for quite a while. I color my hair and thanks to this oil, my ends stay solf and manageable. Besides applying a few minutes before I shampoo, I like to use it as a treatment. If i’m working from home, I’ll apply it and leave it on for hours until I shampoo and head out for the evening.Yes it’s expensive but you only need a bit, this bottle lasts forever! I’m from France originally and I can confirm that Leonor Greyl products are only found in the best salons over there. I’m lucky that they are so easy to oder in the US!

    Trust me A must have! it transformed my dry frizzy hair to soft manageable healthy looking hair. its not at all greasy and smells wonderful. 1rst was hesitatnt thinking, how different is it from virgin cocnut oil, there is a lot of difference, you will see the difference only in one use. i use this to my mid lengths to ends, and Regenerescence Naturelle for my scalp.

  8. Stephanie

    THE BEST hair oil on the market! Quality ingredients that provide essential nutrients for total healthy beautiful hair. I love it it as my pre shampoo, after styling to define curls, to tame fly aways after a blowout, and as a protectant against the sun and swimming! This is a complete oil that does it all. And the results are AMAZING!! This was the first Leonor Greyl product I used, and I became an instant believer of Leonor Greyl products. It lasts a long time because you do not need much. It makes every hairstyle look better by adding a brilliant soft natural shine. It brings out such beautiful colors in my blonde highlights. This oil will transform anyones hair and create beautiful, strong, healthy, shiny, hair!! Worth every penny!!

    This is by far the best oil that I have ever tried. I put this on before bed and shampoo out in the morning…does wonders for my hair. Will be using this one for a while, along with the amazing shampoos. A must have!

  10. Anika

    This oil has completely transformed the health of my hair. I have super fine hair, but I have a ton of it, so it is also very dry. The result is hair that breaks and splits just when shown a hairtie. It also means a lot of excruciating detangling in and after the shower an a great deal of lost hair. However, ever since I started using this oil, my hair has become much stronger, healthier, and shinier. I have fewer split hairs than I had before and my hair looks and moves better. Adding this oil into my routine was my only change, so I know these effects are due to the oil and not some other change.
