Review: L'Oréal Professionnel Couture Edition Mythic Oil by Dilek Hanif

♫ 林俊杰 - 友人说 (feat. 怀秋)


It's not often that I do a hair product review, but this is one item I just need to share with my lovely readers! My hair is in serious need of some major TLC, so this review opportunity came at just the right time. (Thank you, WonderBox Malaysia! ♥) Say hello to my new friend, the L'Oréal Professionnel Couture Edition Mythic Oil by Dilek Hanif!

Turkish fashion designer, Dilek Hanif
So, who is Dilek Hanif?
Dilek Hanif is a Turkish fashion designer who has been introducing her collections in Paris since 2004, and conquering the international fashion stage with her distinctive aesthetic approach, half-way between the elegance of the Ottoman culture and the glamour of contemporary style. Today Dilek is a designer-entrepreneur that conveys the values and the tradition of her country with great energy and talent, and is thus recognized as one of the most representative figures of modern Turkey and of the valuable creative connection between the East and the West.

Take a look at some of her fashion designs, which inspired the creation of the Couture Edition Mythic Oil. My favourite is the short black dress! (✿ ♥‿♥)

Mythic Oil Couture Edition fashion inspiration
What inspired Dilek Hanif when designing this special Couture Edition Mythic Oil?
"My inspiration came from my SS 2012 Couture collection presented in Paris Fashion Week. I based the design on the colours and patterns that I used in my collection. I maximized black and gold shades, playing also with transparencies to gain on elegance, mystery, femininity and modernity but keeping the oriental inspiration, which is also a key identity sign of Mythic Oil. I decided to add a bracelet of Ottoman inspiration for the product to be even more luxurious."

Mythic Oil Couture Edition by Dilek Hanif
The word "luxurious" certainly came to mind when I first saw the gorgeous black and gold box nestled inside the elegant black and gold paper bag. (☆▽☆)
Couture Edition Mythic Oil by Dilek Hanif
The outer box packaging is made from plastic, and has the signature Dilek Hanif Ottoman-inspired design embossed on it. There is a small round clear window which enables you to see the bottle inside, and the unique bracelet included with the couture edition Mythic Oil.
Mythic Oil Couture Edition bottle
The bottle which contains the Mythic Oil itself is made from plastic, and holds 125ml of product. The special bracelet is tied at the top of the bottle, where it can be seen through the outer box's clear window. :)
Close-up of the bracelet
Here's a closer look at the pretty bracelet. The charm itself is very thin and light, and comes with an adjustable rope bracelet.
Mythic Oil pump dispenser
The Mythic Oil is a clear liquid, not golden (that's the bottle colour)
The bottle has a pump dispenser, which is my favourite type for liquid products. In the photo above, you can see the amount of product that is dispensed from one pump. The oil itself is clear; the golden tinge is the bottle colour itself.


Now for the results! Pics or it didn't happen, right? o(`ω´*)o
Do note that my hair is thick, naturally wavy (which makes for bad hair days more often than not), frizzy and been through several dye jobs, thus rather dry and damaged especially at the ends. (⌒_⌒;)

Instructions: Depending on hair type, dispense 1-2 pumps into your hand and apply to dry or damp hair. I use around 3 pumps for my hair.

 I applied the oil in the afternoon, on dry hair. 1st application is before I washed my hair at night.
First application
The pictures below are taken the next day after the 1st application. I washed my hair the night before, after the 1st application the previous afternoon.
2nd and 3rd application of Mythic Oil
The oil, which is a blend of avocado oil and grape seed oil, among other nourishing ingredients, smells very nice. It is easily absorbed into hair, has a very nice lightweight texture, and does not feel oily or sticky on the hands. I could definitely feel my hair become softer and look more glossy just after the first application! (*⌒∇⌒*)

Here are some DIY steps to your very own Mythic 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 this gorgeous, healthy and shiny!

The Verdict?

I am absolutely in love with this Mythic Oil! (≧∇≦)♥ My hair hasn't felt so smooth and silky, not to mention looking glossy and healthy, in a long time, so I'm really looking forward to some "good hair days" ahead.
