At- home steam hairstyling

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - Beauty -

For many, hot hairstyling tools are a morn­ing-rou­tine req­ui­site, even if we don’t al­ways take the nec­es­sary pre­cau­tions (such as prep­ping hair with ther­mal-pro­tec­tion prod­ucts, mak­ing sure hair is dry, or tak­ing reg­u­lar “tools down” breaks). L’oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel aims to min­imise the guilt – and dam­age – with the up­graded Steam­pod. By us­ing steam, as op­posed to heat, to straighten and smooth hair, the Steam­pod cuts back on the de­hy­drat­ing ef­fects of tra­di­tional stylers (although you’ll still need to use a heat pro­tec­tor). Im­prove­ments in­clude a sleeker de­sign, an ad­justable tem­per­a­ture set­ting and a comb at­tach­ment to help fur­ther smooth strands, plus a prom­ise of up to three days of frizz-free hair. And the re­sults are im­pres­sive: pol­ished, glossy hair that doesn’t feel like straw. The fin­ish might be slightly too flat for finer hair, but it could be just the ticket for thick, un­ruly or dam­aged hair – es­pe­cially come sum­mer­time.
