Firstly, I have to say that my hair is a wreck. Six years of dyeing and bleaching have really taken their toll and I'm now left with dry and damaged hair. Over the last year, I've stopped colouring it and I've been straightening/blow drying a lot less, so it's in better condition, but still not great. I have bleached ends which are my main problem area, and the rest of my hair is quite fine and limp.
I was really wary about using oil on my hair worrying that it would weigh it down and just make it look greasy. I decided to try TRESemme Liquid Gold Restorative Complex and I also received a sample of L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil via What's in my Handbag.

It does feel lightweight, but it doesn't seem to help with shine or manageability, and the ends of my hair still feel quite dry after I've used it. I even tried to use this as an intense treatment one night by using around 5-6 pumps, soaking the ends of my hair in it overnight and by morning, my hair was still frizzy and not very manageable. It just feels too lightweight to do my hair any good, but if your hair isn't as damaged as mine then it might work for you as an everyday treatment.

I use a couple of drops of this on the ends of my hair whilst damp, and I have to say that this stuff makes a huge difference! It basically eliminates any frizz from the ends of my hair, makes them feel so soft and manageable and I almost forget that they've been bleached. Usually the day after I've washed my hair, my ends will feel horrible - brittle, dry, prone to breakage - but even the day after using this, they are still soft and almost frizz-free. I think it's safe to say that Mythic Oil has definitely won this battle!
