A Greasy Myth?

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will be familiar with WIMH (click to join now!) which I have written about before. What's In my Handbag is a service which gives free product samples to members - ranging from perfume to foundation. I have been a member for some time now and have reviewed something I received here.

A short while ago I received a full sized product from the WIMH team. It's something I signed up to receive a trial for, from them, but wasn't successful at the time. It was a real pleasant surprise when this turned up at my door!


L'Oreal's Mythic Oil is a widely talked about product in the beauty and blogging world. Hair oils are becoming more and more popular and are replacing conditioners in many a hair routine these days - including mine. Where conditioners can drag the hair down and make it feel heavy, hair oils keep your hair feeling light and bouncy, whilst deeply nourishing the hair.


L'Oreal's hair oil is a formula enriched with argan oil and rice bran oil. it is suitable for all hair types but claims to be particularly effective on unruly, frizz-prone hair. The bottle has a spray function dispenser which I absolutely love. This gives you much better control with the amount of product you actually want to use. I find that with normal bottles which force you to pour the oil into your hands, there is very little control and I always end up using just a little too much oil than needed.


The oil can be used on towel-dried damp hair, or through dry hair after styling. I dispense one or two pumps into my hand and have used this on my hair once it's dry so far but will try it on damp hair to see if I prefer a specific routine. The ends of my hair are dry and brittle, due to years of dying and laziness when it comes to using heat protection on my hair, it's also very frizzy and coarse. From the very first time I used Mythic Oil, I noticed a massive difference to the condition of my hair, especially at the ends. My hair felt softer and easier to manage, and I noticed it looked healthier and shinier too - it doesn't look greasy either which is great. So far I am really pleased with this hair oil and will continue to use this in place of my usual almond oil. L'Oreal Mythic Oil is available for approximately £13 online.

Do you use hair oils? Would you replace your usual conditioner with one?

    1. I think as long as you use only the smallest amount and keep it to the lower two-thirds of your hair (keep away from the roots) then you can make it work! Give it a go and let me know how you get on xx

    1. Me too. I actually started using oils on my hair once dried and styled all because of you Sam! Your hair looks super healthy and shiny, so I'm trying out your tips to hopefully achieve the same xx
