I’ve seriously followed my routine
with four excellent natural hair care products of Leonor Greyl for a month and a half. These products are sodium laureth sulfate free, paraben free, silicone free, eco-friendly and not tested on animals. Without becoming completely organic, the more I try hair or skin products, the more I am interested in their composition and trying to decipher ingredient lists on the back of packaging. I’ve still had a long way: how to identify, know and understand the interactions between different components without taking an advanced course in chemistry? Anyway, I’ve known and used for years Huile de Palme (the Palm Oil) and I recently wanted to discover others products of Leonor Greyl.
Let’s Start with Shampoing Crème Moelle de Bambou (Cream Shampoo Bamboo Marrow) for long and dry hair… and very dry, plus frizzy or relaxed hair. I finally found a shampoo I enjoy to apply (texture, foam and smell) which untangles my hair making them soft. Remember: whatever your hair type, always choice a shampoo with sodium laureth sulfate free (harmful) and silicone-free, especially if you have a sensitive scalp and lengths that break. A nourishing mask is required after the last rinse of shampoo, with cold water! The Masque à l’Orchidée (the Orchid Mask), softener for frizzy hair, is a pure wonder. I love its perfume! Its whipped creamy texture deeply nourishes, hydrates and softens my hair. Before applying the mask strand by strand, I wrung my hair. Once the mask is applied, I keep it one hour wrapped in a cling film and a hot towel (not really sexy, I know, lol). Then I rinse. My hair is relaxed and so soft that I barely comb (first tips, then roots) to tie in a bun. Naturally they dry and smooth. I never use iron or blow dry at home.
Every morning, I apply a blend of Huile de Palme (the Palm Oil) and Lait Luminescence Bi-phase (the Milk Luminescence Bi-Phase), my favorite product! This milk detangles, protects and scents my hair a discreet veil of coconut. Why mixing it with the Palm Oil? Because dry frizzy or relaxed hair needs lots of hydration (the milk or water-based formulation) and being fed (the oil). As not to burden or grease my hair, I put little. This cocktail makes my hair much less brittle! Maybe I’ve missed a bit a creamy texture in addition, to treat specifically my very dry hair type. Unfortunately when you have lots of hair, Lait Luminescence Bi-phase and Masque à l’Orchidée (respectively 150 ml and 200 ml) end quickly! Ditto for the great Huile de Palme (95 ml) that I apply the day before shampooing once a week. Thanks to Leonor Greyl for having been one of the French first brands to offer natural products tailored to the ethnic hair.
