At the origin of this luxurious treatment in 2008, Leonor Greyl wanted to help clients struggling with dehydrated, brittle, overworked hair. They needed a deep-acting mask to counteract damage from bleaching, highlighting, straightening, and perms. Inspired by the stylists at the Leonor Greyl Institute in Paris who blended several products to offer the most hydrating treatments, R&D director David Thomas Brooks formulated Masque Quintessence – the ultimate hair mask for damaged hair. Today, this exceptional mask exemplifies the brand’s expertise in luxury haircare.
There is NOTHING that can restore my frizzy, coarse, curly Italian hair like this product. Leave it in overnight and have soft, healthy hair in the morning!
Best Conditioner Ever!
Yes, it is ridiculously expensive, but it makes my hair look gorgeous, so for me it is
worth it. I use the Greyl Jasmin conditioner for every day, but when I want to look
my best, this is the one.
I absolutely love this product and so does my hair. I have color treated and super fine which needs a little more love and attention during the summer months. You apply this product Before shampooing so it doesnt cause your hair to be weighed down . However, because my hair is so fine I only use it once a week or sometimes once every two weeks. Try it! You wont be disappointed.
Masque Quintessence is I know it’s pricey, but well worth every penny (in my opinion). My hair is really dry and pretty damaged from styling and processing, but this conditioner totally transforms it. I use it on my hair dry and let it sit for a while before I jump in the shower. The results are amazing. I highly recommend biting the bullet on the price and trying this masque. You won’t regret it!
If you have healthy, shiny or young hair or hair that can be shiny with a little shine serum, you might want to pass on this mask. It simply isn’t going to do as much for your hair for the price.
BUT if you have hair that is thinning with age, or has lost luster, volume and shine from color treatment or age, this will be worth EVERY penny.
This mask wil replace moisture and really change the texture of seriously dry hair after one application. It also imparts shine and I think it also moisturizes a dry scalp really well. It doesn’t leave hair greasy or limp. Surprisingly, there’s a lot of bounce and volume after using this, which usually doesn’t happen after a mask treatment.
The scent is a bit strong, as is all Leonor Greyl products, but I think it’s pleasant and not too overpowering.
Tip: I’ve left this on for just five minutes and had the same results as leaving it on 20 minutes.

Masque Quintessence is a Summer must have. I know it’s pricey, but well worth every penny (in my opinion). My hair is really dry and pretty damaged from styling and processing, but this conditioner totally transforms it. I actually use it on my dry hair (as they suggest), let it sit for a while, and then jump in the shower. The results are awesome.

Juliana Becerra –
After many color changes, my hair was damaged almost beyond repair and I was contemplating cutting off about 4 inches. Even though a friend recommended this product, I was hesitant because of the price. I convinced her to let me use some of hers and then I realized why it is so worth the money! I immediately noticed a difference, especially on the ends, and now I use it every week to keep my hair looking healthy.
Bev Lewis –
My new stylist said this product can’t be beat for damaged hair – I totally agree. Believe me, my hair was in the worst shape from a really bad bleach job and I didn’t know how to fix it. This conditioner made all the difference in the world.
Pia Raymond, NY –
I absolutely love the Leonor Greyl luxury hair care line! My favorite this winter is the Masque Quintessence. My relaxed hair was becoming lifeless from the constant abuse of the cold. This conditioning Masque Quintessence treatment combined with the Huile de Palme, has left my hair moisture rich and full of body, even in the midst of these snowy storms.
