L’oreal Professionel Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil comes in plastic clear deep yellow pump bottle, easily held in a palm. The description from the bottle says
‘Radiant oil for coloured-treated hair: contains a blend of linseed oil and cranberry oil. Depending on hair type, dispense 1 to 2 pumps into your hand, apply to dry or damp hair and style as usual. In case of contact with eyes, rinse them immediately.’
This hair oil offers dazzling radiance and protection. The precious ingredients gives so much more nutrient for the hair.
- Linseed oil – high concentrations of essential fatty acids envelope the hair fibre for added radiance, protection and shine.
- Cranberry oil – a potent antioxidant with nourishing properties for glossy-looking glamour.
Although the bottle is in clear deep yellow, the oil is completely clear. Once dispense, the oil has a sweet fruity scent and the end scent does smells like olive oil. For my hair, I used 2 pumps from the middle towards my hair ends after showering.
I have used this continuously for two weeks and here’s a comparison of my hair. On the first week, I have colored my hair with Schwartzkopf Palette Intensive Color Creme and on early of second week, I did trim my hair for a bit approximately half an inch. As you can see, there is slight change of colour and hair style. My hair is also a little frizzy.
Here is a close-up of my hair texture. There isn’t dramatic change but there is improvement, I could tell because I hadn’t use hair serums for a month or two and the chemical work done on my hair is pretty damaging.
The hair doesn’t only contain linseed and cranberry oil but there is also avocado and grape seed oil. However, it does contain alcohol and fragrance for those who have concern on such ingredients.
This hair oil texture is light and I have no trouble on the scent, in fact I love it. I apply this hair oil right after I shower every evening on my damp hair and it doesn’t feel like my hair absorb the oil. My hair is all roughen from the hair colouring but as I go on using this, I find that my hair is less tangled hence easier combing. I usually leave my hair to air dry and it doesn’t feel oily when my hair is dried.
On the second week, I went for a vacation where my hair gets in contact with sea and chlorine water continuously for 2 days and I missed out on using this oil too. When I’m back on my routine, I used an extra pump which means three pumps in total. The oil did help to restore my hair texture, previously it was so tangled and rough from my vacation.
I’m very reluctant when it comes to oil-based product, enough with me having oily combination skin and I didn’t want to add more ‘oily’ feature to myself. I gave this hair oil a chance since I needed something to replenish my hair and never regret it. I felt my hair is so much more healthier and it does help to pro-long my hair color. Best thing is it doesn’t leave my hair feeling icky oily. It did on my first few use because I applied too much and very close to my hair roots. Another attractive feature for this hair oil as a keeper is that it has UV filter, which helps to protect my hair from sun damaging.
