LOreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing Masque Review (2) L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing Masque Review

Thanks to  sheer ignorance and incessant straightening, my hair became frizzy, coarse and lacked shine. That’s when I thought of investing into a good hair masque. My first choice was the L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing masque. Two months into using the mask, I decided to pen a review.

What L’Oreal claims: Works to balance hair’s natural oil levels by targeting very dry ends to deliver intense nourishment. Hair is left feeling soft, supple and brilliantly shiny.

Ingredients:

Argan oil: Used for centuries by Moroccan women, Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E and Omega-3 oils. It easily absorbs into the hair, to deeply nourish and provide control.

Cotton seed oil: Naturally light in weight, this oil adds nourishment and extreme softness to the hair with a weightless finish.

Directions to use: For best results, apply and work into shampooed and towel dried hair. Leave on for up to 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

                                                                  My take on the product

I have wavy to curly hair which tend to get oily on the scalp but remain dry from the bottom. I tend to gravitate towards masques or conditioners whose consistency is thick and not runny. This one ticks that box.

One just needs to scoop a little potion of the masque for  application and I started off by using this product twice a week. Initially, it turned out to be a disappointment, as it did nothing at all to my lifeless hair! It lied on my bathroom counter for a good 3 weeks before I decided to give it a last try. This time around, I decided to keep the masque for a time longer than recommended, i.e. for about 5-6 minutes. I apply the masque from ear down, following the length of my hair, avoiding the scalp area. I could see the quality and texture of my hair improve by the 4th and 5th wash. I never had to deal with tangled hair after shampooing, but this certainly made my hair more manageable and calm. The masque smells like a combination of sweet scents with hints of citrus. Am a sucker for hair products whose fragrance stays for a good 2 days or more.  So this one was winner for me.

Pros:

  • Eliminates frizz to a huge extent.
  • Doesn’t weigh my hair down.
  • The fragrance stays on for a good 2 days.
  • Paraben free formula.
  • Doesn’t make my hair sticky or greasy. Only a little quantity of the masque is required for application.
  • The masque comes filled up till the brim of the tub, which I personally feel, is value for money.
  • Meant for all hair types.
  • Goes a long way. Can last for roughly 2-3 months.

Cons:

  • The tub packaging is a turn off, as it’s neither travel friendly, nor very hygienic. I’d rather prefer a tube packaging.
  • The PRICE!! It could have been a bit cheaper.
  • In terms of formulation, I only wish the masque was a *tad* more nourishing.

Rating: A

Price:  850  INR for 200ml

Recommendation: Yes, I’d definitely repurchase it and  I’d recommend this masque to individuals dealing with dry hair however put it on for atleast 5-6 minutes before rinsing it off if you want to see real results .
