L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil


What the product says: Think your unruly and thick hair can’t be controlled? Not if you use L’Oréal Professional’s richest nourishment – Mythic Oil Rich Oil. With its taming and anti-frizz effect, this combines a blend of precious rice bran oil to intensely moisturise and replenish unruly hair for restored sleekness, and argan oil that deeply nourishes rebellious hair with its rich content of vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Use as a conditioner pre-blow dry to restore softness for easier styling and added control. Or for the ultimate finishing touch, spritz this for long- lasting anti-frizz taming effect.


Mythic Oil Rich Oil can be used as a pre blow-dry conditioner on shampooed, towel-dried hair, for easier styling and added control, or as a luxe finishing touch for an anti-frizz taming effect

My experience with L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil:

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Hope you are doing good. Since it is raining a lot lately and the weather is so humid my hair have been going mad with frizz. I had been searching for a good masque and serum to solve this problem for me. My hair are pretty thick, mostly wavy but a little curly at some parts, a little oiler at the scalp but super dry down below. I went for a trim recently and my hair stylist suggested me to use this new treatment from L’Oreal called the Mythic oil (and when I heard this name I was transported back to the Cleopatra age 😛 ) which contains a blend of argan and rice bran oil I immediately thought of trying this range but since I don’t use SLES shampoos anymore I ditched the shampoo and conditioner and got the Masque and the serum. Today I l be reviewing the serum for you guys and the masque will be coming up next too.
Before I start I need to say this, the smell of the serum is very luxurious. It makes you feel that you have applied something really nice in your hair so, I am in love with the smell of this ‘oil’.

I am calling it a serum since it does not really work as an oil and is to be used post hair wash or on dry hair to ease frizz and style as usual.

The consistency is more on the runnier side and it is very light and gets spread on the hair very easily. And I only use it on the length of my hair and not on the scalp.


I have been using this serum almost every day since the past couple of months and I have not been disappointed by it. I have used it on both damp and dry hair and I personally I feel it works a little better on dry hair for me. When I use it on damp hair, my waves are more defined and definitely less frizzy. It also imparts a healthy shine to my hair. I don’t usually blow dry but I did do it a couple of times and my hair was considerably easier to style and lot more manageable. I have almost waist length hair and I need only two pumps for them.
On dry hair, it works excellent as a detangler, smoothener and imparts good shine. My hair look moisturized and my waves look so defined which I am so so thankful to the mythic oil for. A major plus of mythic oil is that it does not weigh my hair down even when I use it continuously for three days straight.

The packaging is good and reminds me of the oriental times, the gold looks very classy to me 😀 and the pump dispenser works really well.
Also, so far I haven’t noticed much change in the texture or quality of my hair so I don’t know how far the argan oil and rice bran oil are working . May be with continuous use it might show some effect.

Overall, it is a very good option for people with dry frizzy hair since it is excellent serum. It is definitely pretty pricey but I don’t mind it because I finally found my HG serum. But do not except it to do much of anything else such as hair fall control or mend split ends as it is not actually an oil and does contains silicones.


Pros of L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil:

• Instantly defrizzes hair
• Adds shine and smoothens hair
• Defines waves and curls
• Works well both on damp and dry hair
• Can be used before or after styling both
• Does not weigh down hair

Cons of L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil:

• Contains silicones.
• Expensive
• Availability

Rating: 4.75/5(.25 for the hefty price)

Have a nice day ladies. I will be back with the review of the mythic oil masque. 🙂

Wow.Can this stuff compare to Kerastase ? Nah I guess ?


Jagriti August 25, 2013 at 11:34 pm

cant say arja *specs* .. havent tried Kerastase.. but i think its a pretty decent product and raved about a lot in the blogosphere 🙂


Shikha August 25, 2013 at 10:41 pm

Hey Jagriti…can you please suggest a couple of SLES free shampoos available locally..thanks


Jagriti August 25, 2013 at 11:32 pm

hey shikha.. i think you can try Giovanni shampoos.. they are available locally and online too.. also the The Body Shop Rainforest range ( it is a little pricey bt good) *haan ji*
currently I am using the Organic surge SHine boost range and it is pretty good and available online at good deals.. bt i m nt too sure if it would be availble at local shops. 🙂 Hope this helps 😀


Shikha August 26, 2013 at 10:54 pm

Thanks Jagriti..I have used The Body Shop Rainforest range but it did not suit me…I will try Giovanni and Organic Surge range..thanks once again 🙂 🙂 🙂


Charu Sharma August 25, 2013 at 11:18 pm

Nice review Jagriti dear. Will surely give it a try. I have very curly hair and hence always in search of serums which can control frizziness and make my hair soft and manageable 🙂
Will look out for your masque review 🙂


Jagriti August 25, 2013 at 11:35 pm

*thankyou* charu.. i hope it works equally well for you *haan ji* and i d be reviewing the masque pretty soon for you *hifive*
