Lets get oily....

So all this hair oil fuss has escalated in the past few years and I have to say, I was a little late on the bandwagon. Favouring a messy, matte texture to my hair I dismissed hair oils as not being for me. I'm now facing up to the fact that I was completely wrong. Here's my current collection (I have more back in the UK I wasn't able to transport back over here).


L'Oreal Mythic Oil - This was my first oil I tried after receiving it in a GlossyBox. I'm now on my third bottle and I adore it. It's super light and is so great on curled hair to separate curl and keep hair extensions is top condition. It contains avocado and grape seed oil and is probably the closest consistency to an oil out of these five.

Organix Macadamia Oil - This is a very rich, thick formula which I find can weigh my hair down a bit, especially on day two after washing it. It contains macadamia oil so is completely different to Mythic Oil, and claims to mend split ends, which to be honest I'm sceptical about.

Orofluido - Again a sample from a beauty box this one is extremely hydrating. If anything I find this a bit too hydrating on my hair, I save this one for three day old hair to tame the ends before I pop it in a top knot. It's pretty expensive (around the £25 mark depending one where you buy it from) and I won't be repurchasing. 

Schwarzkopf Hair Repair Daily Oil Elixir - What a little beauty. First I love the packaging as it has a lock top to stop spillage and leakage if you take it out in your handbag. It's a similar consistency to Mythic Oil and has similar ingredients, I find this one doesn't weigh my hair down at all. I also love this one on damp hair before I let it air dry to cut out the frizz. At around £4/£5 I'd say buy immediately. 

Lastly is the Tresemme Argon Oil salon smooth serum - the clue's in the name. This one is much more of a serum than an oil; I don't find it nourishes at all but it does give a nice shine to freshly straightened or curled hair, also suits my hair extensions without weighing them down. 

What other oil's would you recommend? As something I use daily in my hair I'm always looking for new oil's to buy and try out....especially bargains.

  3. L'Oreal Mythic Oil is by far one of my favourites! Really want to try Moroccanoil but that price is a bit too high for me :( x
