Why the new gen hair irons are hot hot hot

Despite having wavy hair and absolutely loving the whole (hot-right-now) big bouncy Hollywood waves if I’m honest I’ve always loved poker straight hair. So I was more than a little bit excited when I was given the chance to trial the brand new L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod experience.

In a nutshell, the Steampod is a salon-only straightener that straightens and treats your hair at the same time (pretty awesome huh?). It leaves your hair frizz-free and humidity-proof (great for Auckland weather) until the next wash.

Take a look at my very first Steampod at Servilles salon in Auckland’s Takapuna.

As you can see it’s really simple. There’s also no need for any special styling when your hair is blow-dried so the whole process is really fast.

The Steampod helps to nourish your hair because the steam pushes the pro-keratin product (that’s applied to the hair before being Steampoded) into the hair cuticle.

My hair stayed super-straight for three days after my Steampod- even after sleeping on it.

Servilles charges an extra $15 (on top of the cost of your haircut) for a Steampod. While the L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod is a salon-only treatment there is an at-home Steampod coming our way in the next twelve months so watch this space.

Thanks to my fab stylist Vladimir Moiseev and the great team at Servilles Takapuna.
