Treat your tresses to a bit of shimmer and shine

One occupational hazard of being a beauty editor/writer is season schizophrenia, as we’re thinking about Christmas in July and sun protection in January. As a blogger, my lead time is significantly shorter, but that still doesn’t help me deal with the barrage of holiday product emails I receive well before Halloween. Just yesterday I received information about L’Oreal Professionel’s Mythic Oil Souffle d’Or Sparking Shampoo and Conditioner, and I couldn’t sit on these beauties until December.

Featuring the argan and safflower oil-based Mythic Oil that has worked wonders on my own over-processed hair, these new-for-holiday products are designed to infuse fine-to-normal hair with shimmer and shine thanks to golden light-reflecting microparticles that serve up unsurpassed shine. The most unexpected part of the conditioner is its gel-based formula, which manages to protect, nourish and revive lackluster strands without a hint of heaviness.

Once I manage to track this dynamic duo down locally, don’t even think I’ll be saving it for party season—because every day is worthy of a little sparkle, is it not?
