HG leave in oil. It's a perfect product. I'm serious. This oil leaves my hair insanely soft and sleek. I cannot stop touching it! Plus I put quite a bit in and it never makes my hair greasy, which is a problem I have quite a bit with hair oils. The smell makes me die of happiness...reminds me a bit of biolage. I cannot stop raving about this. I will absolutely buy it again, probably will have to stock up even before it's gone so I don't run out!

This product is amazing. My hair has never been so soft, I can't believe the difference in the feel before and after application of it. I would recommend this to anyone.

I agree with the other posters - this oil is wonderful. I have very thick wavy to curly hair. I've tried a lot of oils and I can tell the difference when I use Mythic Oil. It truly helps tame my unruly waves - they look smoother and my hair finally looks shiny instead of dry.

I'll just add myself to the list of people who love this product! I love the smell (for some reason it kind of reminds me of Bain de Soleil sun products...in a good way), but it's not too strong or overpowering. I apply a small amount to my hair when it's damp and wow - it really does make my hair soft, and my ends look amazing. I actually like combining it with the conditioner (not the mask) as a leave-in oil/conditioner combo. I have thick curly/coils, so wouldn't recommend trying that for all hair types! But in winter, when I'm paranoid about breakage and dryness, it works really well. It's just a lovely, luxurious product. I agree the price could be better, but I find a little goes a long way and the results are excellent.

This product is absolutely amazing. Ive been using it for couple of weeks and I cant be more satisfied. It makes your hair look healthy and shiny. I think that this is really worth the money and the bottle (125ml) can last for couple of months.

Just so that you understand my point of view on this product I have:

Color: Dark brown (naturally darker on top and gets lighter)
Length: almost at my waist
Texture: very thin, but I have A LOT of hair
Type: normal on top, but gets dry at the bottom
Others: I don't use heat on it very much since my hair is very straight and easy to style.

This hair oil from L'Oréal, is amazing! I got a sample after buying a shampoo and it was great. The sample has 1.5 fl.oz (45ml), which I consider a generous amount to get for free. It has the same pump most oils have, like the Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oils. A tiny bit goes a long way for me.

I pump one pump on my palms, rub my palms together and apply it at my very end, really just the tip. Since I have really long hair, it wasn't very healthy at the end and I didn't use very much product on it. After using it only a few times it made a big difference. My ends weren't as split as before and were beginning to be almost as healthy as the top of my head. I use it before blow drying my hair and on my dry hair in the mornings.

I used it everyday for three weeks and it barely made a difference in the bottle. I still have a lot of product left. Make sure not to use it on the top of your head since it isn't necessary and because it isn't a light weight oil. If you do, you're hair will most likely look greasy and it will weight down.

As I mentioned in another review this is why I don't use oil on the top of my head and why the ends are so dry, even without the use of heat: Many people wonder why their ends are dry and less healthy than the top of their head. The answer to that is that the hair gets it's nutriment and all the good stuff from the blood. When you have longer hair, all those oils and nutriment don't get to the end of your hair. That is why we do not need to put oils on the top of our head and why are ends are usually less healthy than the top.

As always, message me if you have any beauty related questions, especially makeup and hair questions.

This stuff is absolutely incredible. I bought the Colour Glow version since I dye my hair every few months and the dryness/split ends I've been battling haven't seen much improvement with other products until this....this glorious miracle worker.

I bought this on Amazon for about $24. Yes, totally expensive, but totally worth it IMO. Granted, I took a chance based in the positive reviews I've read on so many blogs, and I'm glad I did since, for me, it lives up to the hype.

The bottle is just over 4 oz. Considering how little you need the bottle should last quite awhile, further justifying the cost.

I like the fact the bottle is clear so you can actually see the oil. The bottle is a gold color with a really nice capped pump. I wish the pump locked off and on in case the cap goes missing and I want to take it with me somewhere.

Based on other reviews, I used 2 pumps for my medium length A-line that hits my shoulders in the back and hits an inch below my collar bone in the front. The oil looks clear when you pump it into your hand. The consistency isn't as thick as, say, Agadir. It's a little thinner but not so much that it's super runny or anything. It actually is a really nice consistency and applies very easily without leaving your hands tacky or greasy.

It smells amazing....like roses mixed with jasmine or lavender. I'm usually not a fan of florals, but this doesn't smell overwhelmingly or sickeningly floral. It's just a really nice scent that makes your hair smell fantastic. My boyfriend even said I smelled really good when he got a whiff hours after my hair was dried and styled. He doesn't like florals either, so that was definitely a pro.

I applied the two pumps into the palm of my hand, rubbed together to emulsify and started applying to the lengths of damp, just washed and conditioned hair, steering clear of my roots. Two pumps seemed like such a small amount, but I resisted the urge to use more. My hair felt less tangly, a little softer with more sheen but didn't feel weighed down or oily. I let my hair air dry for about 20 mins so it's not soaking wet when I blow dry. As soon as I started blow drying I could see a huge difference in the smoothness, the shine, and softness of my hair. It made my hair ridiculously soft and shiny, but incredibly light with body. My ends felt completely nourished and smooth. I haven't been able to stop running my fingers through my hair lol.

Even after sleeping, my hair is still shiny, smooth, and smells fresh. I've noticed that a lot of other oils I've tried tend to make my hair kinda stringy or lank after sleeping and my ends don't retain any smoothness...they go back to feeling kinky and dry while the length feels a bit heavy.

I highly recommend trying Mythic Oil out. Again, the one I bought was the Colour Glow, so I don't know about the two other versions but I think the Colour Glow is an amazing product and worth every cent I paid.

I have the Rich version of this. I love it! I normally use Paul Mitchell Skinny serum but it's so expensive where I am. I use this when I use my curling iron as a heat protectant and it gives a beautiful shine to my hair. It smells great as well. I like the plastic pump bottle and the secure cap - perfect for travelling. I bought this for SGD20 which is affordable IMO.

There are two versions of this one: I have the newest one, which I believe is richer than the original

I like this :) It has a flowery smell - it smells a little like lilac and jasmine to me - flower bushes. At first, I didn't like this oil much - it made my hair heavier, coarse and oily. That was because I used it on dry hair. When this is used on dry hair, it doesn't absorb well, but if you put it in moist/damp/towel-dry hair, the result is much better. My hair is straight, medium thickness, a little damaged (coloured many, many times, but it's doing well, with no split ends), about waist-length. This oil doesn't weigh my hair down - it actually makes it bouncy! My hair becomes more manageable, softer and slightly more shiny :) I use about 2 pumps each time and use, it from neck and down, focusing on the ends.

Hair oils I have tried that are equally good or better are: Agadir Hair Oil (many might not like the smell - it's kinda insence-y) and Define Oil Treatment. One more that I have tried is the Aquage Silkening Hair Oil - a lot of people love it, but it didn't do anything for me besides making my hair more static.
