L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil & Nutrifier Glycerol masque review (my post-party obsessions!)

L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil review
I don't know about you, but this week and last I've had Christmas party after Christmas party, and I've been spraying so many things on my hair. In an effort to get it back into shape, I tried out two new products - and I'm in love!
I'm quite hard to please when it comes to haircare. I have very fine hair so anything that coats it too much or leaves a residue is a no-no. If I want my hair to last anything over a day without washing, then I need simple products that do exactly what they say. The problem is, they don't all deliver - sometimes even the pricier ones. But I've been a huge fan of L'Oreal Pro. for ages now - since they launched their absolute repair range a few years ago.

These two aren't brand new out or anything, they're just ones that I've recently discovered and really love, so I thought I'd take some snaps and let you know why, in case you're on the lookout for something that can get your hair into a better condition as well!

Mythic Oil Original // £16.49

So this one here is the original oil. They also have a shimmering version for body & hair, but I haven't given that one a go because, well, I don't want shimmery hair. No, I'm sure it's lovely, but I'm so sold on this one that I haven't needed to give it a try (yet). 

The consistency of this is thick - thicker than you'd think looking at it. It comes out in a pump dispenser not a spray, which shows it's got a little more substance than a lot of oil sprays. The best thing about this is the oil doesn't feel sticky, even on my hands. I pump a bit into my hand, warm it up in my palms, then comb my fingers through the ends of my damp hair. It disappears so quickly, and when I've blow-dried it in, my hair feels soft and smooth.

The aim of the oil is to tame frizz and nourish at the same time. Now, I don't have frizzy hair, but what this does for me is smooth the ends of my hair down - making it look thicker. I say it looks thicker because I have a few split ends, and when I don't use this, they look quite straggly. I've also discovered that by leaving in around 4 pumps on overnight, then washing out in the morning, my hair feels around 10x better the next day. I honestly do think it's pretty magic. Especially for post-party season.

Nutrifier Masque // £13.99

The second thing I wanted to talk about is this awesome Nutrifier mask. I used this back at the start of summer, and for SOME stupid reason, I must have misplaced it when I moving house. So I stopped using it, and my hair has suffered. 

It's so thick and creamy in consistency, and the best part for me is the smell. It's got coconut oil in it so even when it's been washed out, my hair smells amazing. I don't really like sleeping in a mask because I worry it will get on my pillows then on my skin, so what I do with this is put it on when I first get in the shower (after shampooing quickly), then I go about shaving my legs etc - and when I'm done, I wash the mask out. It gets about 5ish minutes on my hair soaking in, and that extra time gives it a chance to really get to work.

When my hair is dried it looks so much shinier than before. And if I use it with the oil spray as well, then it's extra swishy. Oh, and I forgot to mention - the mask formula is silicon-free, which is why I think I can use it without having to wash my hair again the next day. It means there isn't that artificial coating over my scalp, so it feels clean for a good few days - despite all the oils.

So there you have it, my two favourite party season essentials. I know they're a little bit pricier than a few other brands of oils and masks, but my hair is something I'm willing to pay out for, and these two are genuinely some of the best I've tried.
