At- home steam hairstyling
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.
