Dry, oily, damaged, fine, frizzy – these are some of the varying textures most haircare products cater to but what happens when you have more than just one type of problem hair?
Here’s when customising your hair products come into play; with L’Oréal Professionnel’s new lineup of products under the Mythic Oil range, this is made possible by having tailor-made rituals consisting of precious oils used as beauty remedies by ancient civilisations that offer hair personalised nutrition, incredible radiance, and ultimate softness.
From Ancient Egypt to Chinese, Japanese and Indian civilizations, women have turned to precious oils for beauty rituals as well as medicinal and aromatherapy purposes.
Inspired by this ancestral beauty ritual, L’Oréal Professionnel reinvents the tradition of beauty oils with its latest hair solution. Using the finest oils to create special customised blends and fusing them with its technical haircare expertise, the brand introduces Mythic Oil, a range of four tailor-made beauty oils – each one targeted for different hair needs so that women can discover the mystic secret to beautiful hair!
Original Mythic Oil (All Hair Types)
In 2011, the original Mythic Oil was created to suit all hair types – and with just a few drops of this nourishing oil, hair is transformed to become more shiny and supple, thanks to the combination of avocado oil and grapeseed oil. It is said that the product is so effective and popular, that three bottles are sold every minute worldwide!
However, realising that women have different hair types along with varying needs, L’Oréal Professionnel introduced three customised precious blends of Mythic Oil to cater to all haircare needs.
Mythic Oil Milk (Fine Hair)
Women with fine hair can now look forward to stronger and more luscious hair with Mythic Oil Milk. This precious oil is a blend of Royalactin and Passiflora Oil. Derived from Royal Jelly, Royalactin is rich in antioxidants and B-complex vitamins, while Passiflora Oil is rich in vitamin C, calcium and phosphorous. A lightweight oil, Mythic Oil Milk deeply nourishes hair. Use this as a post-shampoo detangler for added moisture or as a pre-blow dry conditioner to deliver shine, softness and anti-frizz protection. For added softness that improves the appearance of split ends, Mythic Oil Milk can be used as a finishing spritz.
Mythic Oil Rich Oil (Thick/Frizzy Hair)
Think your unruly and thick hair can’t be controlled? Not if you use L’Oréal Professionnel’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 Colour Glow Oil (Coloured Hair)
Even colour-treated hair can benefit from L’Oréal Professionnel’s Mythic Oil. This special blend offers dazzling radiance and protection for hair that has undergone colour treatment. With its linseed oil, hair fibre is enveloped in a high concentration of essential fatty acids for added radiance and shine. Meanwhile, cranberry oil further protects with its potent antioxidant properties. The result? Glossy looking glamour! Use daily as a UV filter to protect hair from the sun’s damaging rays, as a pre-blow dry shine enhancer to smooth hair for a high-shine appearance, and as a finishing touch for a dazzling sparkle to your hair.
How to apply your Mythic Oil for a gorgeous blow-dry:
Step 1: Section hair into eight sections after shampooing and tower drying.
Step 2: Warm your Mythic Oil blend in the palms of your hands. Apply to each section, starting from the ends and working your way to the crown.
Step 3: Leave for two minutes to allow it to penetrate before blow-drying. Style as usual. Hair has never looked for gorgeous, healthy and shiny!
THE VENUSBUZZ.COM ‘ OIL BAR’ EXPERIENCE
Thanks to the success of the legendary Mythic Oil, L’Oréal Professionnel has gone on to introduce a whole new range of haircare products that incorporate legendary beauty oils to further nourish and enhance your hair for round-the-clock beautiful tresses!
We tried out the Oil Bar, a pampering three-step treatment at all L’Oréal Professionnel salons, during the recent KL Fashion Week (in which they were official sponsors backstage) to experience for ourselves the relaxing and soothing effects of the Mythic Oil on our damaged, dry, and over-processed hair at Miko Galere in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.
Step 1: Scalp Purifying Pre-Shampoo Concentrate
This salon service introduces the intensive Mythic Oil Scalp Purifying Pre-Shampoo Concentrate. Enriched with three essential oils – Citrus, Cypress and Tea Tree Oil – it offers a deeply refreshing experience, leaving the scalp feeling energised and soothed. This concentrate is applied on wet hair and then massaged in to offer a relaxing and pleasant experience while the concentrate takes effect.
Step 2: Mythic Oil Shampoo
After rinsing off the concentrate, your hair stylist will proceed to shampoo hair with the intensely nourishing Mythic Oil Shampoo.
Step 3: Made-to-Measure Intense Treatment
After diagnosing your hair needs, your hair stylist will prepare a unique made-to-measure treatment that is not only perfectly suited for your hair type but also to your desires. The made-to-measure treatment offers an intensive solution of mixing a Mythic Oil blend with either the Mythic Oil Conditioner or the Mythic Oil Masque. This is then applied to your hair for instant hair restoration and nourishment.
After a good blow dry, we were pleased with how light and nourished our hair felt and the best thing is how good it smells too. Not too overpowering, but very natural and light – we even keep a bottle on our office table now to leave in our tresses after lunch hour to sort of neutralise the after-food smell in our hair!There’s an almost immediate bounce in our hair after application, and it definitely makes it easier for us to run our fingers through our hair (without it getting stuck due to the usual tangles since our hair is super dry), so this Mythic Oil is a definite winner in our eyes. Also, we love the limited Couture Edition by Dilek Hanif which comes with a bracelet!
So where do you go to get your hands on this wondrous Mythic Oil? It’s available at all L’Oréal Professionnel salons nationwide for RM75. For your nearest L’Oréal Professionnel salon, contact the L’Oréal Professionnel Hotline at 03-7727 2215 or log on to the website.
