An ode to the nourishing hair oil that protects strands from environmental stressors.
Written By Jayme Cyk
No matter the job, no matter the talent, no matter the hairstylist, there always seems to be a Leonor Greyl hair care essential on set. Amongst iconic celebrities (Farrah Fawcett used to request it while filming on location) and famed hairstylists (Robert Vetica can’t say enough good things about the French hair care range), Leonor Greyl is a true a Hollywood staple. Case in point: L’huile de Leonor Greyl Pre-Shampoo Oil Treatment, a healing hero product that cures parched strands and delivers instant vibrance. “This treatment is one of the greatest,” says hairstylist Mara Roszak. “If your hair is overly dry or chemically treated, applying this oil—mostly on the ends—repairs it significantly. Sleeping with the oil on is a great way to let the product really soak in and moisturize.”  
ON SET: The perfect sun protector when shooting at the beach for six straight hours.  
ON THE RED CARPET: Proven to add shine, even after you’ve aggressively bleached your hair for an upcoming role.  

ON THE VANITY: Doubles as a treatment to safeguard your mane from chlorine before a dip in the pool. 
“I lather dry hair with the deliciously floral Pre-Shampoo Oil at night, when I’m planning to wash my hair the next morning. I comb the product through, then twist hair into a low braid for sleep. When I wake up, my hair feels stronger and softer—I love it.”—Kylee Heath, hairstylist
