Review - Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme

I was lucky enough to receive this little treat in the Boudoir Prive October Beauty Box and I really feel I need to spread the love for it because I've found it to be truly fantastic.
Now, I'm not going to lie, hair oils kind of scared me until recently, and I was even more fearful of the 'pre-shampoo treatment' concept of this. It seemed a little odd at first, but it really is quite straight forward - put it in the lengths and ends, leave it for at least 5 minutes, then shampoo it out. Simples!

I roadtested the oil last friday night and the first thing I noticed was the distinctly familiar scent of monoi oil. It is a rather pungent scent, but a nice one that always reminds me of the beach because I used to slather my legs in tahitian monoi oil before hitting the sand back in Australia.

Something I've noticed a lot of people mentioning is the funny consistency of the product - it solidifies very easily, and in this Autumnal weather, that's bound to happen. An easy fix is to roll the bottle in your palms for a minute or run it under hot water until it liquifies again.

The full sized product - £24 for 95ml
So I put the oil in my (rather thick) lengths, did the washing up and had a nice cup of tea, then shampooed my hair twice in the shower and conditioned as normal.

The scent of the treatment still lingered after I had shampooed twice and conditioned so I was rather pleased with that!

After I towel dried my hair, I thought I'd be a bit cheeky and add a smidge of the Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment from the september box for extra nourishing power, and I'm pleased to report it went exactly to plan! Once my hair had dried naturally, I noticed a definite glossiness to it. It looked healthier and bouncier and just more 'done' than before.
The real cherry on top is the fact that my hair remained that way for the past three days - soft, shiny and smelling lovely - not greasy at all!
 I really couldn't be more impressed with this product - so much so that tonight I've gone for round two and I've actually been sitting here typing this with a generous drop of Huile de Palme working it's magic as I blog!  This hair oil treatment really is a star product and would definitely benefit anyone who wants to inject a bit of life into their tresses.

Heres to a good hair day tomorrow.
