I got this in a sample size in one of my beauty boxes subscription, can't remember which one.
Does not weight down or make hair greasy, in fact I think it's almost too light. While my hair do feels soft, they do not feel that great. I can still see white dry damaged ends.
I use this oil on wet hair before styling as usual.
I love the scent, it's one of the good points of this product.
I've heard it's quite pricy, I would probably not repurchase because it's nice but not THAT great. It's an ok product, I don't think it's worth all the praise it gets in magazine.

This is a nice hair oil for fine dry hair like mine. It is quite lightweight but a little goes a long way. Does not weight down or make hair greasy. And while it does make hair prettier and softer do not expect it to conceal those dry damaged ends, let alone mend them.
I like to use this oil while my hair is still humid, before applying hair mousse. One pump is enough for my ends. If my hair looks frizzy when dry I apply one more pump.
I'm not crazy about the scent of this product but it's not bad either, I guess it's just not my type of scent. Luckily it doesn't linger either. The packaging is quite nice.
I might repurchase this oil again - even though it's a bit pricy, it's still cheaper than Moroccanoil or Macadamia Oil.

I really really like this product.It smells very nice,the packaging is very nice the price is ok and it is great for my hair..
I tested it a few times until i found how it worked best for me.I use the mythic oil on wet to dumb hair,I towel dry them for 10 minutes first.I apply 3 or 4 pumps,I have really long hair, and i gently distribute it along the hair and concentrate on the ends which are dry and always avoid the roots.Unless you want greasy hair! Then i blow dry my hair and style it.
I found that if i just apply it after i blow dry my hair then they will look kind of greasy.And never use it on the roots of the hair.If you have some flyways on the top of your hair then put only a small pump and maybe wipe away some of product and use it very lightly with the fingers don't apply to much because it will end up looking oily. So i believe it is best to use it before styling and drying your hair.But that's how it worked on my hair.Work with it and find how it works for you.
My hair look fantastic after using it.They shine in a very good way and the feel very soft.It is the first time that a product has managed to soften my ends and actually touch them and feel soft not just to look soft and tamed.And my ends used to not "obey" every time i would straight my hair now they do!
If your hair end up greasy it means you used a lot of product.It's an oil so obviously if you use a lot of product your hair will look oily.If your hair are healthy and soft then you wouldn't need this product.
It is a product that is definitely worth to try..If you use it correctly it wouldn't disappoint you..I will definitely buy this again.

I've been silicone-free for a long time, but I gave in and bought this from my hairdresser as I've had a hard time keeping away the winter fly-aways. It worked great the first few times, but then started to build up in my hair and make it heavy and oily and weird. I used a cleansing shampoo to get it all out and L'Oreal Evercreme deep conditioner to bring back the moisture and shine. No more silicone for me.

First of all, this oil smells lovely - like gardenias. It works pretty nicely too. I use 2 or 3 pumps after washing my hair and it does a pretty okay job of smoothing/softening/helping control frizz. It's not the greatest product I've ever used for this purpose (a mixture of Moroccan Oil and Aveda's Smoothing Infusion seems to work best of everything for me) but it's not bad. It's not super-heavy or greasy so I can use it between shampoos if the end of my hair are feeling sort of dry and in need of a bit of pampering and extra moisture. All in all, a pretty good product but not the best I've ever used.

Love this stuff.I have thin hair and it doesn't weigh it down.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
Just one pump/big drop is terrific on my nearly shoulder-length colour-treated hair. I have fine hair but tons and tons of it, and it gets flyaway and frizzy in the weirdly humid area I live in. This makes my hair smooth and so so soft without making it heavy and greasy - although the one time I used a bit more it wasn't great. I don't use everyday, but even if I did I think this bottle would last forever as it's quite large. Smells great, but not as heavy a scent as moroccanoil (which my flatmate uses). I prefer the lighter scent.
Also bought the conditioner (don't seem to be any reviews for that yet) and do use that every day, as it is amazing, even better than the oil.

I really like this oil. I usually put 3-4 pumps and get a nice effect. For me it is a similar, less expensive version of the Kerastase oil, even though there is a slight difference in ingredients.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This oil is not for me. It feels amazing in your hair and if your hair is frizzy it does tame it and make your hair look nourished. It can be put in wet or dry hair. The problem with this is it may make your hair look nice but it doesn't help 'heal, repair, nourish my hair at all. I want something that is going to help my hair not something to just put over the top to make it look nice but doesn't help my hair at all. This is better than the Moroccan oil but I won't purchase this again. I want to try the Redken all soft Argan oil next or the Moroccan oil frizz control both are meant to be great.

This oil is great, I put it through my mid hair to end before a shampoo to use as a treatment. I also use it after I towel dry my hair and I find it cuts down my blow drying time by half, and I use it to touch up any statics to finish, it is a lovely product with a lovely scent to it. After using Kerestase Oleo relax serum for ten years I am happy to find a product fairly similar for a third of the cost!

My hair: fine, slightly wavy, color treated (though not bleached), with oily roots and extremely dry and frizzy ends which are a huge problem for me; the fact that I try to keep it as long as possible does not help, of course.
The first thing you'll notice about this product is the scent; it does indeed smell divine and everyone who's ever smelled it agrees completely. Shame L'Oreal doesn't make a fragrance that smells like this. Now that I would repurchase for sure.
As for results: this oil can be used as a serum on wet hair before styling, or as a leave in conditioner on dry or wet hair. Works ok as all three. It does help get the ends nice and smooth with heat styling. It also gives nice, glossy shine.
Now, does it improve hair long term, like it claims to do? In my experience, no, plain and simple.
Would I buy again? I'm not quite sure. It does work well as a styling and shine enhancing serum, but that's pretty much it. And it's really expensive, on top of that. Only thing I'm sure of is, when I'm done with this I'll move on to trying something else.
To be fair, it has lasted me for more than a year and I still have plenty to go, so if it does work for you, it's a good investment.

Really like it! Lightweight, leaves no residue, makes my hair shiny and soft. Eliminates frizz and detangles. Be careful tho, there are several kinds of Loreal mythic oil available: for all hair types and for thick hair: http://www.fashionandbeautystore.com/loreal.html
Make sure to buy one that suits your hair type.

This oil is very lightweight and doesn't weigh my hair down the way some other hair oils do. It also leaves no buildup and leaves hair soft and shiny. Very good product if your hair is fine and reasonably healthy. It's nice to find a hair oil that you don't to worry so much about overdoing on application. My hair never looks greasy when I use it.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette, Curly, Medium Eyes: Grey
I love this stuff. The smell is nice and it makes my hair feel fantastic. I've also used it between shampoos to freshen my hair up a bit. I have long, thick, naturally curly colored hair so I use about 3-4 good size pumps and it still doesn't weigh my hair down or make it look greasy. It has a nice, 'clean' scent to it and I like it a lot more than the Elvive Extraordinary oil for colored hair, which smells a bit like alcohol to me.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I dont really see any diffrence in term of softness and shine on my hair but I did notice that my split ends are not as much as before. I have thick frizzy highlighted hair and this does not give any shine not softness to my hair. I guess I will try other oil that will do the job for my hair type. Other than that it smells lovely and not as greasy as other oil. For me the search for the perfect oil continues..

I wear hair extensions which can be come very dry and look fried at the ends. This is perfect for hair that is dry. After washing my hair extensions I squirt about a 1p size amount and run it through them from top to bottom. It leaves them full of moisture and softness and they look more real! It also has a lovely smell too!
Don't put to much on, it leaves hair terribly greasy!

I don;t know....I dont feel my hair heavy or greesy, its super light as formula, nice smell BUT, i didn't notice anything good to my hair.. I dont know if i like it or not. My hair at the ends needed moisturising and special care but this one didn't show anything on my hair.

This was another hair gift from my ex-boyfriend, and having fine, limp and very pron to being greasy hair, I never thought using an oil would do anything to benefit it. Surprisingly this oil does not weigh down my hair and actually gives much needed body and volume to my roots. Instead of making my hair greasy it seems to lock moisture into it. My hair feels soft and comfortable all day. A good product for bad hair days.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown

I am generally wary of haircare products (after trying so many that didn't work or made things worse). That said, I recently started highlighting my hair and my hairdresser used this Mythic Oil on me at the salon both when my hair was wet post-shampooing and when my hair was dry post-blowdrying. I have to say I was pretty darned impressed with this stuff. In fact, so is my hairdresser - every one at the salon uses this on all their customers and swears by it. First off, it just smells heavenly. That's not enough to make me wanna buy any product though. Secondly, it really works so well. It moisturises the hair strand, makes hair shine, and yet leaves hair so wonderfully soft, light and strokable, with absolutely no hint of stickiness or greasiness. It does not weigh hair down.
It can be used on wet and/or dry hair. And it does contain avocado oil and grapeseed oil amongst a medium-sized list of chemical names. I have an itchy, sensitive scalp and am a chronic sufferer of eczema, but this stuff did not irritate my skin at all.
Prior to my second bout of highlighting, my hair wasn't that damaged, and I found I didn't need any conditioner at all after shampooing (which was what I used to do). All I needed was 1 drop of this stuff when my hair is still wet post-shampoo, to "condition" it and make it tangle-free for combing too. I used to use this every time after shampooing because it just did the job so well. I would blowdry my hair lightly after, and my hair would look and feel and smell great.
Well now, not any more. I cannot rely on this alone to detangle my hair now, because after another repeat of highlighting, my hair is damaged even more so, and super tangly from roots to ends. I had tried using this stuff from roots to ends but it just did not detangle my hair very well and my comb still snagged horribly on the hair on top of my head when I tried combing my hair through - although the mid-length to the hair ends were fine and tangle-free with this product.
I have had to resort to using Johnson's Baby Detangling Conditioner to get the detangling job done now, and so don't use this after shampooing anymore. But it's still nice for touch-ups - say, wake up in the morning with a bad hair day and need to wet hair down and blowdry it lightly back to a proper shapee - well I would normally use a drop of this stuff to give my hair some protection against the heat of the blowdrying restyle, as well as to give my hair some scent and shine - as the shampoo and conditioner I now use are baby products which don't impart much scent at all. I'm sure this stuff would be great as a leave-in conditioner for someone who doesn't have dry/colour-treated/heat-damaged hair though, but it's not quite adequate as a conditioner or detangler for dry/damaged hair.
Oh and I get this from Amazon.co.uk. Cheaper that way than buying direct from my hairdresser's. And this stuff really lasts for ages as you only need 1 or 2 drops a time for it to work. It may seem like you are forking out a lot of money initially for a rather small bottle but a little goes a long way with this stuff and although I have been using it daily for over 4 months now, it's only a third empty so I reckon it will last me for about a year at the rate I'm going, and just over £10 a pop, this is actually quite cheap.
EDIT : I have stopped using this except as a serum to gloss my hair when it's dry... reason being - it is not that good for conditioning (Paul Mitchell The Conditioner is my HG for this purpose now) as my hair has now had multiple chemical treatments on it and is now very very fried... but as a serum, this is great and does not make hair oily or weigh down hair too much.
