Gleau Nourishing Oils

THE STORY
For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of being introduced to Gleau, allow me the honor of sharing some info with you. Gleau (pronouced "glow") is an all natural blend of 8 unique oils brought together for the sole purpose of nourishing dry, stressed hair. This blend was born out of a need to have and use natural plant oils that somewhat mimicked the results of a moisturizer. What I mean is that results like softer hair, shine, light feel would be common experiences to those who used the product.

For the longest time, I struggled with finding the right moisturizer that actually gave my hair what it wanted without being too heavy.  I couldn't find that product so I sought out to blend various oils together, each with their own unique qualities and benefits, to create an ultra-blend!  For the longest time, I used the oil blend on myself. Then one day, my mother in law visited and asked to try some after complaining about the condition of her hair.  When she flew back home, she left her hair products behind and took Gleau back with her.  Days later she emailed me sharing that she'd received several compliments from her coworker on how great her hair looked.   She had a completely different hair texture than mine (type 3) and I thought to myself, "if this works so well for the both of us, perhaps others would love Gleau as well"

THE INGREDIENTS

As you may already know, there are dozens of plant oils out there to choose from. Each with their own unique qualities. What makes Gleau special is the oils selected to comprise this amazing blend. Each one of the oils selected is said to have "moisturizing' qualities. Some of the oils used even have the ability to penetrate the hair strand, nourishing it from the inside. Another thing I should mention is the blend a pretty varied mix of some truly healthy oils-all in one bottle! Gleau contains moroccan argan oil, camellia seed oil from the orient, two varieties of jojoba oil, wheat germ, meadowfoam seed oil, and more. These are definitely ingredients your hair should be exposed to on a regular basis. It's like food for your hair!


THE EXPERIENCE

Those of you who've tried Gleau are saying the same things:
  • "Gleau makes an excellent sealer. It helps keep in moisture from your favorite product in longer."
  • Gleau produces intense shine. It gives the hair a nice healthy glow.
  • Gleau helps soften the hair. It's light and DOES NOT weigh the hair down. It's never greasy or heavy.
I myself use Gleau on a daily basis. I often use it on it's own without a moisturizer. Either way, I still get great results. Even when used on a daily basis, I don't experience the flat, greasy hair I get if I use other oils regularly. This recipe brings out the best in each ingredient.

One thing I'll also say is that Gleau is pretty affordable considering the ingredients. I've seen argan oil products sold for upwards of $30.00. Even a bottle of plain Jojoba oil can cost more than Gleau. Here, you are getting a blend of quality, effective oils for one very affordable price. Argan oil is one of the first ingredients in Gleau

The glowing reviews on Amazon.com speaks to how wonderful this product has been to those who've tried it. To learn more, visit Gleau's website.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one's a keeper!!, May 19, 2010
This review is from: Gleau Nourishing Hair Oil Blend (Misc.)
This oil doesn't weigh my hair down, I don't have greasy product build-up, the shine is ridiculous, and my hair (I promise) has never felt as soft as it does when I seal with it. Even more, a little goes a very long way with this product. It's literally a healthy, moisturizing, nourishing, "Gleau" in a bottle! I know what works for some may not work for others, but I think this one is worth a shot and I strongly recommend it.

This oil is light and easy to spread. The smell is really light because I can not detect a distinct scent which works for me. I appreciate all the great oils in this product. Rather than having to buy all of these oils separately they are all in one convenient product. It makes my hair really soft too. This will be a repurchase.

As someone with thin, fine relaxed hair, I immediately appreciated the lightness of this product. I apply only once a week at night. Any other application weighs my hair down. This product completely absorbs into the hair. I also use it in my "pre-poo" deep conditioning. I would recommend this to anyone looking for weightless moisturization.

I first tried a sample of the Gleau Oil before it was even on sale on the market and really liked it. A little goes a long way. It's a very light oil (a combination of oils including Argan, almond, coconut), and it easy absorbs into my hair and does not weigh it down even when I use it daily. I find it has no scent. I personally don't like products that have a strong smell, so that's a big plus for me. Definitely a keeper.

After trying a free sample of Gleau I knew I had to go ahead and purchase it. I use it to seal in my moisturizer and it keeps my hair from feeling dry all day long. After using it just a few weeks, I've noticed a significant reduction in breakage and my hair feels softer too. A lot of products make promises but Gleau is the real thing!

Hey girls!

I became interested in really caring for my hair only about a month ago. I discovered Gleau oil from Nadege and since she has such beautiful relaxed hair I thought that if she's using this product it must be pretty good. I got the order in about 3 days and its one of the best moisturizers that I've ever used. I have dandruff issues and this really works as a great scalp oil and its makes my hair really soft to the touch as a daily moisturizer. I have below shoulder length relaxed hair and I'm really interested in growing it out. I really focus on putting it on my ends to keep them from splitting and I can already see a difference. I'm on my way to longer healthier RELAXED hair. Thanks Nadege!

This review is from: Gleau Nourishing Hair Oil Blend (Misc.)
I love using Gleau on my hair every day. Great texture and smell. Never leaves a greasy film on my hair. I absolutely love it best as a moisturize when my hair is flat ironed straight, as it maintains my hair as is---it doesn't weigh my hair down. Great price too! I hope the formula never changes....LOVE the ingredients

  2. Thank you for the quick shipment. I am very happy with your product. Very good quality. I stocked up with the 4oz. It should last a while since so little is needed when I use it and my hair doesn't feel weighed down (even at 12 weeks post!)

  5. Right now I am using a sample and I must say that I am impressed. I LOVE the fact that it is light weight, so no matter how many times I use it, my hair never feels weighed down or greasy. Sealing with this oil made my hair so shiny and soft! After the sample is gone, I think I might have to purchase a bottle!

  8. I agree with the previous posters, Gleau is really fantastic! It's the only product I've ever used that keeps my ends from feeling dry all day, and they look a lot healthier too.

  9. Wow Brownbelle! That's wonderful. If you're o.k with it, I'll be placing your feedback online as well. Thanks for the encouragement. It's good to know that Gleau works just as well for others as it does for me.

  12. Nadege, I just found your website a week ago, and I have to tell you, you are the real deal when it comes to black hair care. Well done and congratulations. I also decided to order your Gleau product, which I received yesterday, and it is all that I've been looking for. Sometime ago I tried Bumble&Bumble Shine (as I love a couple of their other products -- Prep and Brillantine), hoping it would do what your product does, but it didn't :(. Your product also works better than coconut oil or jojoba oil on their own, these are perhaps better for pre-poo (CO) and dry scalp (JO). I also just noticed you like the Sedu -- I do too, very different results and gentler on the hair. Well, I'm a fan, and will be trying a few other rec's (Burt's Bee pre-poo treatment :) and watching this space for any new products you may develop in the future. All the best -- Luna.

  13. Luna,
    Thanks so much for your kind words. You made my day! I am ready to add to the product offering of the Gleau line. Next will be a moisturizer to pair with the oil blend. I've ordered some amazing ingredients and can't wait to start mixing. I'll keep everyone updated on the progress.

    I'm glad your hair loves it!

  14. Nadege,
    That is wonderful news! I also wanted to add, tried the Gleau today on my scalp -- also excellent. The only other thing I have tried before that makes any difference whatsoever to a damaged, hyper scalp (read thick scaling in certain areas) is CeraVe cream (which contains three different ceramides + phytosphingosine). I think I might try ceramides in oral form next to strengthen the hair root support. All the best with everything -- Luna.
