♫ 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|
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|
"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."

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.

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.
