My hair’s awfully wavy. Really. And awfully thick! Every hairstylist that has come across my hair has told me how impossibly thick my hair was that it was a bit difficult to style. During college, I had to rely on hair relaxing services over at David’s Salon across my school just to tame my hair somehow. When hair irons were introduced to the market, I was one of the first who purchased, and tried ironing my hair every single day, getting nice comments from my friends, such as, “hey your hair looks so straight and nice today!”
Yeah, that went into my head. Sooooo…I used that not-even ceramic coated hair iron on my hair every single day until one day, I saw that my hair looked stick straight, with really ugly, flyaway ends. Mukhang walis ( looking like a broomstick ). It became really dry and really awkward looking. I stopped.
Rebonding happened. Thank goodness for rebonding that I was able to have beautiful, frizz-free, well-tamed hair for a good year, before undergoing it again. It really made my life easier, but at the expense of my hair’s health. My hair was getting more brittle by the minute, and after three successive rebonding treatments ( that’s three years, ) I finally stopped for a mini-hair-vacation, just letting my hair be (BUT I didn’t say anything against hair coloring hahahaha! ohhh Sophie! ) .
As of late, I’m crazy about steam technology. Steam technology veers away from ceramic, or even tourmaline technology, if you talk about hair irons, as steam technology is powered by steam pressure from water, and does not harm the hair. If you notice that my hair’s been curly in some of the photos ( or most of them ) last year, it’s because I’ve used Caruso Steam Rollers. They’re really hair-friendly, that do not damage my hair at all. Bleached, colored hair is fragile enough, and can really be pushed to the brink of damage-dom when styled too frequently. My hair really needs gentle, but effective styling tools. I’m counting on steam technology. With my steam curlers as one of my precious possessions right now, imagine my glee when friend Mikki, representing L’Oreal Professionel told me about L’Oreal Professionel’s new Steampod – it’s a hair iron powered by steam technology! Heaven has just arrived. It heard me!!!
