If you would’ve asked me if I was interested in trying an oil on any part of my skin a year ago I would’ve said: absolutely not. I have oily prone skin and hair so oil was a big no-no for me. During the past few months I have finally realised that even though I have oily skin, oils can have great benefits for me too and now a whole new world has opened for me. Today I’m going to review one of my newest oils: the L’Oreal Mythic Oil. If you’re interested in finding out if it’s just as great as the other oils I’ve given a chance, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with discussing this gorgeous packaging. The L’Oreal Mythic Oil comes in a golden glass bottle with a little pump on top. I really appreciate the pump because working with oil can be such a pain (and a mess) and this solves that entire problem.
The bottle contains 30 ml of product and therefore it has a pretty decent size for on the go but also just for at home obviously. Because it’s an oil a little bit goes a very very long way, so this bit of oil will probably last me forever. Originally it comes in bigger packagings tho, so if you buy it in stores it will probably be a lot bigger.
The L’Oreal Mythic Oil is a nourishing oil made for all hair types. When I just received this I wasn’t aware of the fact that it was meant to be used as an hair oil, but luckily I found out just in time before I wanted to put it all over my face. I have never been such a fan of hair oils, mainly because I have very thin hair that gets weigh down really quickly and therefore it’s very easy to become greasy.
However, when used right, a hair oil can, even for people with hair like me, be everything your hair needed. I don’t use a lot of heat on my hair mainly because I’m way too lazy for that, but whenever I do use heat I will make sure I use this stuff too. So if you’re someone who does use a lot of heat on his/her hair, you might want to give this product a try!
The reason why I like using this so much is because it keeps my hair healthy. I know that there are a million heat protectors out there for every type of hair, but trust me, I’ve tried many and nothing comes even close to what this product does. This product doesn’t only protect your hair, it nourishes it at the same time and it makes it look like you just came back from the hair dresser.
It makes your hair look shiny, alive, healthy and taken care of. You know how hair can look very stiff and dry and just stuck into one place? Well, when you use this oil your hair will look like the opposite of that. It will be very movable, flexible and happy. I really like that look.
Aside from all that good news I do want to explicitly let you guys know that this oil does not make your hair look super greasy. Especially not if you use it before you apply heat. I won’t recommend putting it on your scalp or anywhere above your ears, but when used in the right location with the right amount of product it will not make your hair look or feel greasy no matter what hair type you have!
So I think it’s clear that I really enjoy this product. For me this really is the secret to healthy and shiny hair. I never knew I could love a hair oil so much, but I really can’t go without it anymore whenever I decide to straighten my hair. I absolutely love this stuff, it’s the best!
The L’Oreal Mythic Oil is available at Lookfantastic for €19,95 (100ml).
That was it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know whether or not you ever use hair oils and if so let me know which one is your favourite!
