I've been chasing all of my friends around with this Steam Iron like a crazy person, hell bent on giving out good hair for the last three weeks. Not only does this Iron style the hair, it also treats the hair each time you use it. The cool thing is that your hair seems to get better with each use. Frizzy hair? I don't really have that any more. Dry hair? Nope. This is the third key to my hair renaissance! (Miss the other two? Check them out here and here.)
I first learned about the Steam Iron with Thermolon plates from Be Pro USA at CosmoProf earlier this year. My life as I know it has been different ever since. Steam Irons aren't really a new thing, but my hair has never reacted to a styling tool like this before. The difference is why I've been tackling any women that come to my house and "twisting" their arms into letting me treat their hair.
|Meet Finn. She's one of my besties and was not expecting to be a hair model for two products. She has naturally wavy hair that is very processed.|
The result is always the same. Beautiful, hydrated, non-frizzy hair that goes on for days and days. Before I used this Steam Iron, my hair would frizz within hours of flat ironing or curling. Look at almost any photo of my blog from the last seven years and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. The only time my hair has looked this good was immediately after a keratin treatment. And even then it looked dry.
|No makeup, air dried hair. Then later, with makeup and treated and styled hair. My ends looks unrecognizable.|
I shudder to even say the word, but my hair is now frizz-proof and (gulp) moist. How is this even possible? What makes this Steam Iron so special that it's worth a car payment? (Yeah, it's a car payment, but I've got a code for 20% off below!)
|This is another friend, who came over to hang out and left with treated and styled hair. She has naturally thick, healthy hair, with a little bit of coarse texture. This smoothed her hair and made it frizz resistant.|
This iron gets up to 450 degrees in less than 90 seconds, which is pretty fast. A push of the button determines which of the six heating presets you use. I personally like to use the 375 or 410 setting. You can also control the steam, opting for more or less steam depending on your needs. I like more steam than less. This iron is designed with the user in mind. The cord does not tangle easily and is heat resistant, so burning your cord isn't likely. You can't accidentally turn this off or change a setting while you are using it. It even has a little rubberized tip so you can hold the tip of the iron without burning your fingers. Think of this as a styling tool and a treatment tool. It's unlike anything else you already have and it's much more than just a flat iron.
|I used to use tablespoons of hair oil to try to manage my frizz. This is hair on day three, with no additional styling products or touch ups since the initial styling|
The treatment that is steamed into the hair is everything. The steam that this iron provides isn't from water (in fact, you can't put water in this iron). It's a special blend, containing Argan Oil, hydrolyzed wheat protein, and panthenol. When you use the iron, you are also sealing a treatment into your hair. This means very, very shiny hair--like a mirror shiny. Hair is hydrated and frizz-resistant. Frizzy ends look healthier than you can imagine and your hair is left very soft and touchable. Even crazier, once I've steam ironed my hair, I don't need to touch it up until after I wash it, which averages about three or four days. Even cooler, coming soon are additional treatments you can use with the steam iron. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
This steam iron falls into the "life-changing" category, according to me. My hair continues to get better and better with each treatment. Sure, it's $325.00 and kinda is the cost of a car payment. But having hair like this is worth every single cent. I can save you 20% ($65.00 off of the full price!) with code GOULDYLOXFRIEND. Plus the packaging is gorgeous. This is what you want for the holidays. (Just grab it before the code stops working.)
