    This is the most wonderful masque I have tried! The scent is amazing. The richness of the creamy product just absorbs and puts moisture into dry and damaged hair. I love the shampoo as well. This masque is 5 stars. I have used many of Leonore Greyl products and they are some of the best hair products on the market. I am so grateful they are available in the U.S. as I normally purchase them in France.

    this mask i the most innefective product that I´ve ever tried. It provided absolutely no moisture, made my hair so tangled and as I was rinsing it out so much of my hair fell out. I am so so disappointed and I cannot believe I spent so much money on it.

    When I really want to restore my dry damaged bleached hair I use this once a week, a little goes a very long way. I put it on and leave it in and relax in the bath before I wash it out, it has helped my hair get back to softer, healthier status very quick

  4. kimmelbek

    This masque is simply perfect. I naturally have very dry and course hair…and on top of that I get blonde highlights. I have never found a hair masque that provides immediate results like this masque does. Or really even a hair masque that provides any results at all. Most masques make my hair feel slippery when on, but then after the shower I feel like my hair shows no benefit. After the first use of Masque Quintessence, my hair was smoother, softer, and healthier. And it’s a double bonus that the ingredients are all natural.

    This masque completely transformed my hair! I found out about it in an article about the best conditioners for dry hair and decided to take a chance get it for myself as a birthday present. It was the best gift I ever received! I used it as a deep treatment on dry hair for the first two weeks and the results were amazing. My hair was silky all the way to the ends and I was able to skip the salon conditioning treatment at my next visit.
    I meant to use this only once in a while and thought using it as a daily conditioner was crazy given the cost, but it works so well and smells so good I couldn’t resist using it every time I shampoo (about 3 times per week). I found that you only need a small amount on damp hair and it even comes with a little spoon to scoop out the exact amount you need. I have very long, fine hair and I’m still working on the jar I bought 3 months ago.
    If any one has told you that the only cure for your dry hair is to cut it all off and start over, don’t believe them! Try this first!
    Now, nothing but LG products touch my hair. I also recommend going with a full treatment collection. You really don’t know how fabulous your hair can be until you switch to LG!

    Do not be discouraged by the price of this product. It is worth every dollar, I have thin fragile color treated hair and I am 65y/o. This conditioning treatment absolutely keeps my hair soft shiny and oh so healthy looking. I am able to grow my hair a little beyond shoulder length and it really and truly looks great. Prior to purchasing and using this treatment I could not have bragged about how my hair looked but now I certainly can. If you’re hesitant to go all out for the full size then purchase the sample package. You won’t be disappointed

  7. Didi

    The Masque Quintessence is a very rich and moisturizing product. It helped my curly, dry hair to feel and look softer and a bit more shiny.

  8. Giusi Lara

    Extremely restoring for very damaged hair, make them shiny and healthy, nice to touch and enhance their nature in color and consistency. Excellent value for money. Optimal for all seasons. Definitely a must have.

  9. Pam Moore

    Is it possible to just buy a sample of this product ever since the fire in my home town my hair has been so dry. Is it only sold online or is there a store i could goto for sample

    • Marjie

      Hello Pam –
      Thank you for reaching out to us. We do offer Luxury Sample Sets on our website, which allow you to try multiple products for minimal cost. Some of our authorized partners do also have samples in stock, but I would check with them first. Thank you!

    I received a sample of this and absolutely love it. It made my hair so smooth, shiny and strong. Leonor Greyl products are expensive, but are the ONLY products out there that are worth it, in my opinion. And I’ve tried everything!
