Tame the Rebel
L’Oreal Professionnel’s three new customized luxurious Mythic Oil blends harness the restorative power of various oils. Influenced by the beauty rituals first favored by women of the ancient world (China, Egypt, India and Persia), L’Oreal Professionnel brings the nourishing and healthful benefits of oils to address specific hair needs – detangling, discipline and color protection. Let’s break them down:
• Mythic Oil Rich Oil – Two fine oils deliver deep hydration, control, and shine to unruly hair. Infused with rice bran oil and argan oil, this rich emulsion absorbs into hair for a sleek, manageable style. As a finishing product it provides control, and is especially tough on frizz, without leaving a greasy residue.
• Mythic Oil Reinforcing Milk – Inspired by Cleopatra’s milk and honey baths, this lightweight spray detangles, smooths frizz and adds strength to hair. Royalactin from royal jelly, a rare protein-rich ingredient, and Passiflora Oil, a vitamin-rich extract from the Passion Fruit Flower, help to nourish and detangle hair. Use as a pre-blow dry treatment or a finishing product for fine hair.
• Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil – Preserve color-treated or sun-distressed hair with this color protectant made from Linseed Oil. Extracted from an ancient Mediterranean flower, it’s high in Omega-3 fatty acids and known for helping to illuminate one’s hair color. Cranberry Oil and UV filters protect hair color from fading too, with their antioxidant properties. Use as a finishing product to add vibrancy and shine.
I’ve been relishing the benefits of L’Oreal’s Mythic Oil these past few weeks and have unquestionably unleashed my hair’s inner shine. While the products do have a higher price tag, a little oil goes a long way: two to three pumps or sprays provides excellent results like superb frizz-control, shine, and softness – and long lasting and fragrant to boot. Notes evocative of the Silk Road, like orange blossom, musk, jasmine, and green lemon leaves me sweetly smelling my hair throughout the day.
