L'Oréal Professionel Mythic Oil

This is a scheduled post as I am currently on holiday. As you're reading this, I'm into my second day on our cruise around Bermuda and the Caribbean and, tomorrow, we dock for the day at Kings Wharf, Bermuda!

While I am a beauty and skincare junkie through and through, haircare has never really done it for me. I think it's a direct result of my hair being naturally straight and having never coloured it that I have had no need or want for fancy products. However, over the last few months I have been experimenting with some hair oils to see (a) what all the fuss is about and (b) if they improve the texture/appearance/shine of my mane. I have been working away at the L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil since I got it a few months ago but, it has since been replaced by the new kid in town, L'Oréal Mythic Oil Milk* (RRP €19.00).
L'Oréal Mythic Oil Milk for all hair types and it's coloured hair-friendly compatriot Colour Glow Oil join the original Mythic Oil which took the beauty addled world by storm in 2011. I've been testing the Milk formulation as I have uncoloured hair and, as someone who never expects much from hair products, I thought I would share my thoughts on it having used it consistently for a few weeks now. 

The two ingredients that L'Oréal like to big up are Royal Jelly; rich in antioxidants and B-complex vitamins, and lightweight Passiflora oil; full of Vitamin C, Calcium and Phosphorous to nourish. However, it's important to point out that these oils are heavy in silicones which, I don't mind but, which I know many of you prefer to avoid. 

L'Oréal say that the Mythic Oil Milk can be used as a post shampoo detangler, a pre-blowdry leave-in conditioner and also as a final touch to dry hair to smooth down flyaways and, allegedly, conceal split ends. I don't like the thought of putting oil onto dry hair, nor do I ever brush oil through my hair as I don't want it near my roots so, I have been using this as a post-brushing pre-blowdry aid and, surprisingly, been loving it! 

I tend to just mist the milky oil over my brushed hair and leave it to sit for a few minutes before turning the heat on it. My hair dries twice as fast and is left with a gorgeous healthy shine and a tonne of volume. I have heard people say that they either hate or love the scent. I don't find it too distinctive either way but, if you're easily affected by smells, it's worth giving it a whiff before purchase. 

My only real issue with this oil is purely cosmetic. I feel that the packaging looks and feels cheap and, for almost €20, I expect more. The bottle, while equipped with a decent misting spray nozzle, is made of thin, easily dented plastic. I even think that the Colour Glow Oil just looks that little bit more luxe than the Milk. It's not a big deal but, I firmly believe that if brands are going to charge big bucks or even mid-market bucks, they need to put effort and thought into the aesthetics of their products. 

I still don't believe that I need a hair oil and could easily do without but, while I have one in my grasp, I'm more than happy to reap the rewards that come with using them!


  1. Thanks for the review I may pick this one up! My hair is so beaten down and lacking volume after heating and coloring.

  2. Had a sample of this and it was cracking! Def need to purchase!

  3. L’Oreal Mythic Oil is my holy grail product. I use it almost every day especially when blowdrying my hair. I think Hairtrade is the cheapest place at the moment – here’s the link if anyone wants to have a look. I even use it on my I&K <a

  4. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I found this during my
    hunt for something concerning this.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
