Mythic oil review: Sharing my personal experience and thoughts about the product after using it for a year!
So, I bought this bottle of Mythic oil last year, and on the third month of using it, I was thinking about writing this post, however, I kept procrastinating. I can be a lazy B*M at times ~Rolling eyes~
Anyway, now that I have completely used a bottle of L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Huile Originale Argan Oil, I feel I should share my honest review on Mythic oil and how it works on hair. 😀
Before I share my thoughts and experience, let’s have a look at the product description.
About the product:
L’Oreal Mythic Oil is a professional multi-tasking nourishing oil. This professional hair management is empowered by highly concentrated oils – the secret of your hairdresser to breathe nourishment and shine onto the fiber without weighing hair down. Its formula, highly concentrated with natural argan oil, softens and protects hair. Its lightweight fluid texture facilitates hair-drying for silky magnificent hair from root to tips. Ideal for detangling hair after shampooing and illuminating it before or after blow-drying. Professional and hair-salon proof, it provides 48h anti-humidity and anti-frizz protection*, along with heat protection to heated appliances up to 230°/ 446°F.
Suitable for: All hair types
Pros of Mythic oil :
- Added heat protection of up to 230°c
- Fast drying and ideal for detangling
- Controls the look of frizz
- Lightweight hair oil serum
- Pleasant fragrance
Cons of Mythic oil
- I don’t have much of cons, except the price point 😛
How to use Mythic oil:
There are multiple ways you can use Mythic oil on your hair:
Apply Mythic oil after hair wash
Towel dry your hair and see that your hair is 80 to 90 percent dry. Next, take 1 to 2 pumps of Mythic oil in the palms of your hands, rub them together for a few seconds. This will make the hair oil warm and spread evenly on the hair strands. Bend your hair and apply the serum from the ends to the roots.
Apply Mythic oil on damp hair
Apply evenly to towel-dried mid-lengths and ends before blow-drying. I suggest this method only if you are planning to blow dry your hair or style with hot hair styling tools. I find using this oil in damp hair weighs down my hair when I don’t blow dry right after. I use this method only when I am in a rush to step out.
Apply Mythic oil on dry hair
You can use it as how you have been using your hair serums. Apply to dry hair to tame frizzy, flyaway and smooth hair whenever you find your hair dry.
Quantity: 100 ml
Price: Rs 1100/-
My experience with the product:
I bought this serum when I was dealing with really dry & frizzy hair, to such an extent that someone even said that the ends of my hair ends looked like a broom! Perhaps, that was one of the reasons I bought Mythic oil for my hair without any second thoughts. It’s super light and doesn’t feel sticky at all. It gets absorbed quickly and adds shine to the hair after application. The fragrance is mild and pleasant.
Mythic oil hair serum is loved by many hair professionals, and I had read & heard a lot of good stuff about the product. Yes, the price point is slightly higher than a regular hair serum, but I decided to give it a try.
When should you apply Mythic Oil?
Even though it says ‘Mythic oil’, it is a nourishing oil mostly used as a hair serum. Just a pump is enough for medium-length hair. A bottle can last up to 6-8 months depending on how often you wash or style your hair. Acts as a heat protectant and prevents your hair from larger damage. In my case, I am not much obsessed with hot tools, but there’s not a single day I can skip hair serums. Mythic hair oil did help in making my hair less frizzy, and manageable, but not much with split ends and dry ends, since that portion of my hair was literally DEAD. However, at the beginning of this year, I decided to go short to get rid of the split ends. Post which, I could see the product work wonderfully.
Is Loreal Mythic Oil good?
To be honest, it’s a nice product and the price point is something you’ll not mind after using the product. Mythic oil by Loreal is a good option if you are looking for a nourishing hair oil that can be used as a serum, heat protectant, and oil. It’s such a versatile product.
