I have tried the Mythic Oil and on a superficial level I would say I loved it: I have super dry, coarse hair and it managed to tame it, give it shine and hydrate it, make it more manageable.


if you look closely and with a more educated eye at the ingredient list you're not going to be happy at all.
it has 6 HIGH RISK fragrance ingredients (fragrance is usually no-no because it has great irritation potential) so it's formulation is really not that luxurious, as the ingredients aren't exactly okay.

Now I'm using Kerastase Ultimate Oil which has a way more cleaner ingredient list (not to mention safer and high-quality) but the price is according to that as well: double than the Mythic Oil with similar effects (Kerastase a bit better, however, in terms of texture, lightness and hydration).

Mixed feelings about this product because of the ingredient list...

I love this oil, amazingly it's non greasy and is one of the few products that can transform my dull, very dry hair into something shiny and manageable. It smells divine, is easy to apply I use it on the mid lengths and ends of dry hair after styling. I would recommend this to anyone. The only negative I have is the price.

Great oil! I use this on my midshaft to ends as a heat protector pre on my fine oily scalp hair blow dryer (just a touch! ) I also like the hair milk which is nice for flyways on my fine straight hair post blow drying or days I let my hair air dry. they both smell wonderful and won't weight fine hair down as look as you use just a touch and absorb quickly. Price is very reasonable also.

I was a long time Morrocanoil user but after finally finishing my bottle I simply wasn't wowed by it enough to want to repurchase. Grabbed a travel size of this to try and am really quite impressed!
It's a little thicker, smells lovely and feels more nourishing than other oily type serums I've used. One pump is plenty for my chin length bob, and makes it easy to comb and less frizzy and flyaway when dry, giving a sleek but not flat look.
The price is definitely right, too, a 100ml bottle is less than AU30, whereas Morrocanoil is AU50 at least.
I'm hoping over time that this will prove more caring than MO, which I find mainly cosmetic.

I've had this product for a long time and I go back and forth with using it. I apply it to my hair after it's blowdried and straightened if I find it looks a little damaged and/or could use more shine. It definitely has more moisture and feels more nourishing than other shine/repair serums I use (on dry hair specifically). The scent is nice, very light and a little floral/fresh but not overpowering. The price isn't bad when you factor in how big the bottle is and how little you need to use. Overall I find this is a handy product to have as it helps my hair when it needs a little bit of extra care but it's already styled and it's too late to go back in time and deep condition. Would repurchase.

I recently purchased a travel size of this at cvs to try to replace my Moroccanoil. It smells like a mix of biolage and flowers, simply lovely. It does a decent job of adding softness and shine to my hair bit I have to use quite a lot, and it's not as moisturizing as the Moroccanoil. The search continues!

I usually split my hair into 2 sections and use 1 pump on each section from below ear down.

A little bit sticky but thins out nicely if you warm up the oil by rubbing your palms. Makes hair shiny and smooth. Easier to comb and light fragrance.

I use this oil periodically but haven't noticed a drastic difference in my hair!! it does hydrate well though for the price (comparable to kerastase products which I have also tried before). I have a half a bottle left though and would probably not repurchase it (for my hair type there are other options as well like kerastase and caviar cc cream by alterna which I literally live on).

My hair - fine (but lots of it!), coloured (natural dark blonde, dyed nearly black), and wavy, with a tendancy to go flat on top with a frizz halo (my nickname in highschool was "christmas tree hair"). I have a few long layers but anything other than that and my hair looks stringy. Anyways, I've tried so many different shampoos/conditioners and never really found anything I was happy with. I have access to a Cosmoprof so I mix between drugstore and salon brands. My most recent failure was Redken Frizz Dismiss line paired with Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil.

A few weeks ago, I had an Olaplex treatment done, and the stylist used Pureology Volume shampoo and conditioner, followed by L'Oreal Mythic Oil. I let my hair air dry while driving home and OMG the waves...the softness...amazing. I bought all 3 products last week and I'm really happy with them - a coworker commented that my hair looks fuller, so something must be working! I paid $22 CAD for a bottle at Cosmoprof (stylist price), but I would definitely pay retail.

When I first used Mythic Oil, I loved how soft and detangled it made my wet hair. It smells good like gardenias too!

Alas! :( When my hair is dried and flat ironed, it leaves my hair in no better manageable condition than before. If anything, my ends feel crunchier and my hair dryer and much coarser than before. I mean, I have some serious breakage after switching to this oil for just two weeks.

I previously used Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil mixed with a dab of Garnier Fructis' Moroccan Oil. The Invisible Oil alone isn't siliconey enough to tame my crazy hair. The two products seem to be a magic combination for my super thick and frizzy hair. I was hoping to find one product that achieves the same results.

The search continues! :/

**edit...I meant Mythic Oil
