This will make dry hair happy!

Today we’re talking hair. Hair with awful dry ends that is. Yep, that sounds like my hair right! I’m not the kindest to my hair, dyeing it for years and it’s asking a lot of my hair. So what I’m looking for is something that will nourish those poor poor dry ends! Here are a few tips from me:

  • Limit washing your hair to 2 or maybe 3 times a week. You really don’t need to wash it that much. The more you wash it, the more you irritate your skin on the head. 
  • Use a tiny bit of shampoo, you don’t want to strip your hair of all it’s own oils, it’s in fact really good. 
  • If you have dry hair ends like me, concentrate shampooing the upper part of the hair, leave the lower part as much as possible, you don’t want to strip it even more.
  • If you have oily hair roots try to condition the lower part of your hair for the most part.
  • When using a hair masque, leave it in for a good while. To prevent it from getting wet use a shower cap. I always wash the rest of my body in the meanwhile.
  • This is not a pleasant thing to do, but try to end your shower with colder water, the follicles of your hair will close so you will not lose too much moisture. Also the hair gets shinier!
  • After finishing washing your hair you might want to wash your upper back part again because for people suffering from bacné this might help a bit. You don’t want product residue there!
  • Always protect your hair with a product when using hot tools! I learned the hard way, but you don’t want fried ends!
  • Try to massage your head every once in a while, it’s relaxing and it’s good for the hair!

 

 

Now for people looking for some serious nourishing products I do recommend you the L’Oreal Mythic Oil hair care line. I’ve been testing it for a while now and boy it sure is so hydrating for the hair! Today I’m reviewing the shampoo, conditioner and the hair masque.

The Mythic Oil shampoo comes in a 250 ml bottle with a pump and it goes for 15.20 euro. This shampoo contains argan oil, cotton oil, salicylic acid, advocado oil and grape seed oil. The texture is really light, you don’t need a lot of it and it keeps the hair soft which is a big plus for processed hair. It has a nice scent which I honestly can’t describe. It’s a very pleasant smell though.

The Mythic Oil conditioner comes in a slightly smaller bottle of 190 ml and goes for 20.40 euro. It also has a pump. The conditioner has a light creamy texture and the scent is slightly different but still pleasant. I’d say it smells slightly heavier. It also contains the same oils but in larger quantities. It’s very hydrating for the hair so be sure to not use too much of it!

The Mythic Oil masque comes in a pot of 200 ml and goes for 21.80 euro. It has a thick creamy texture and the scent is a bit lighter. It contains candedelilla wax and all the oils that I mentioned before. This is a very rich hair masque, so I’d say to use it once a week. This is definitely not for oily hair types, it’s too rich for that, but hair that is dry, dull or damaged will love this!

 

 

Overall I really like this line, it’s amazing for people suffering from dry and/or damaged hair. It’s incredibly moisturising, I never had something better than this in all honesty. You do have to be careful to not use too much of the products because it’s so rich that your hair might feel sticky if you use too much of it! I also really like the scent of all three products. They each have a different smell but you do notice that there are similarities there. Perfume is on the end of the ingredient list so you don’t have to worry that it’s loaded with mostly fragrance. Another very big plus is the pump system, it’s brilliant! I wished there were more shampoos and conditioners like this because it’s so much easier.  That’s a thumbs up from me!

Any hair care tips you want to share with me? I hope you all had a great weekend!I’m still getting used to switching to winter hours, lol!

  1. do i appy the mythic oil masque directly on the scalp??

  2. do i apply the masque directly on the scalp or just the lower part of my hair??

    • I just apply it on the ends of my hair. If you want a good hydrating trating apply it generally everywhere, including the scalp, let it sink in for a while and rinse it off :).

  3. Mooie verpakkingen en lijkt me heerlijk voor droog haar

  4. i wish i knew how to do anything when it comes to hair… And I just can’t help but wash it everyday! :/

  5. I really wanna taste those products!!

    Xoxo

  6. It really sounds like great products!

  7. Unfortunately, I have to wash my haor every other day. Mijn hoofdhuid is veel te vet. En ik heb het al geprobeerd om het een aantal weken pas om de twee dagen te doen maar zonder resultaat.

  8. I’ve been hearing a lot about this line! I am really curious to try the hair oil though–I think these shampoos and conditioners would be a little too heavy for my hair because it tends to get very oily quickly

    • Oh yeah, I might skip it if you don’t have dry hair. The hair oils are really nice too and the scents are great too!

  9. I love these!! Ik wil gewoon ze gewoon niet meer gebruiken omdat ze anders opgaan :/ :)

  10. Ik vind deze producten ook erg fijn!

  11. I like the mask, but the conditioner doesn’t do much to my hair and the shampoo makes my scalp greasy. I think it’s great for people who have really dry scalp though!

  12. this line looks so great!
    i love l’oreal hair care products. i haven’t seen this particular line yet, but i think i’ve seen something like “cream wash” here in the u.s.
    i use final cold water rinse method, too! this makes my hair look less frizzy. :)

    • Yeah and it’s also great for the blood circulation! This line is sold at the hair dressers, so you might find it there!

  13. Once again: what a nice blogpost! ^^ Luckily, I don’t have dry and damaged hair. My hair can be frizzy at times, but nothing a little serum can’t fix. It’s nice to see you found some good products for your hair :3

    • Thanks! Oh frizzy hair can be a bit annoying at times no? And do you suffer from static hair in the winters too? I really hate it, lol!

  14. I don’t have dry hair and I kind of have a hair oil phobia, so I won’t be using this… But I’m glad that it did wonders for you!

  15. Die olie lijkt me echt heerlijk en ik denk dat ik het ook eens ga gebruiken!

  16. Het had heel wat overtuigingskracht nodig om de korte pijn van een koude einddouche te nemen. Net wat opgewarmd (zeker met de aankomende winter) en dan die Brrr koude straal. Het haar vindt het wel leuk. De productjes klinken zo fjn, ook gewoon de naam al ‘Mythic oil’ heeft iets magisch.

    • Ja die naam hebben ze goed gekozen ;). En idd, het heeft wat moed nodig om met een koude douche te eindigen, zeker nu! Brrrrr!

  17. ik eindig het wassen met koud water, zoals je zei. lekker verfrissend!

  18. Klinkt superfijn! Ik heb ook een haarolie van L’Oreal, maar dan van een andere lijn, en dat spul werkt ook echt top! :)

  19. Ik had er al veel goed over gehoord, ik heb droog haar dus ik wil deze zeker proberen!
