POWDER review

POWDER review

.A rough dry took no time at all and made my hair look like it had been professionally done. It was sleek but still had some of the texture I liked just without the frizzy unpredictability.. In fact, I would go as far to say that it’s the best hair treatment I’ve had.

POWDER

There’s a quote doing the rounds on Instagram at the moment: “Invest in your hair – it’s the crown you never take off.” It’s cheesy, yes, but think about it and it’s undoubtedly true. Get your hair right and you’ll always feel that little bit better than if you’d left it to fend for itself. Well, today we talk a treatment that will mean you can leave it to fend for itself and it’ll still look the silkiest, smoothest and glossiest it’s ever been.

What is it?

‘I call it a straightment,’ says Zoltan – the go-to guy for shiny hair – who has adapted a traditional ‘keratin’ treatment to suit his clients’ hair needs. It’s a semi-permanent smoothing formula that relaxes the hair and leaves it as soft, sleek and manageable as possible which means that when you’ve had it done, you can pretty much leave it post-wash and it still looks good.

My hair is long and relatively straight anyway but I struggle with short baby-haired frizz that sits on top of my head, making it look unkempt and a bit messy. I was after easy breezy hair so, after hearing Zoltan was the guy who made hair dreams come true, I gave it a go.

What’s the process?

He starts by discussing any concerns you have (for me, it was the frizz) and looks at the texture, thickness and, of course, length of your hair. While the straightment works on a lot of hair types, he avoids using it on afro hair as it’s not effective enough. If you’ve got afro hair, he can treat it with another formula.

The process is really simple. On wet hair, the solution is painted from roots down to ends, and then blow-dried into hair. Then straighteners, which are heated to between 150 and 230 degrees depending on the hair type, are used to seal the treatment into each strand. It takes around an hour – though my hair is thick and quite long – but can take as little as half an hour on those with shorter locks. You will probably look a bit like Sporty Spice with flat, poker straight hair afterwards. But short term pain for 4-6 months of gain.

Another noteworthy point is that you should try and fit a smoothing treatment in at least a week prior to having any colour because this can cause breakage. In fact, a week’s leeway on either side of the treatment for any other hair treatents is a good rule of thumb.

The results

As mentioned, I left the salon looking like Mel C. But the magic happens once you’ve marinated in the treatment for 24 – 48 hours. Yep, no washing for that long, so I recommend getting it done when you haven’t got a big date that night.

When I did wash my hair, it was unequivocally the easiest blow dry I’ve ever carried out. A rough dry took no time at all and made my hair look like it had been professionally done. It was sleek but still had some of the texture I liked just without the frizzy unpredictability. In fact, I would go as far to say that it’s the best hair treatment I’ve had.

The Complete Hair Repair: KeraSwift

If you have long hair the ends can be 5-7 years old. If you had your favourite handbag with you 24/7 for 5 years – imagine what it would end up looking like if you never treated or repaired it?” says hair texture expert Zoltan “If you’re looking for a frizz-fighting conditioning treatment then keratin ones are still the best,” he advises. “Ask for KeraSwift, which I love because it repairs the hair and leaves it unbelievably shiny but doesn’t cause any further damage (it’s formaldehyde, glycolic acid, paraben and sodium hydroxide free), reduces frizz, protects hair from future damage and has staying power – one treatment will last beyond the summer – between 2-4 months.

How To Tame Frizzy Hair For Good: LOOK Meets Zoltan

 

HE’S HAILED AS THE KING OF HAIR TEXTURE TRANSFORMATIONS, SO LOOK’S BEAUTY ASSISTANT GABRIELLE PUT THE TREATMENT TO THE TEST…

I am forever on the quest for silky, shiny hair. It’s never ending. I’ve tried hundreds of products: smoothing masks, anti frizz conditioners, overnight treatments, oils – you name it, I’ve done it.

My hair is naturally curly, but not those gorgeous pre Raphaelite curls, more of, to put it simply, a mess. It sometimes does what I say, but only after a good hours battle with a blow dryer and straightening iron.

In winter, it’s annoying, but in summer it’s unbearable. Before my recent holiday to Thailand, was I concerned about the potentially gut wrenching food poisoning? Not even, the thought of my frizzy locks consumed me and I spent the majority of my trip with my hard-to-handle hair in a bun and covered in conditioner.

After a Brazilian Blow dry gone wrong a year ago I have been skeptical about them ever since, that was until I came across Zoltan. Known by beauty editors as a hair guru, he specializes in permanent and semi-permanent re texturising and tailors treatments to each hair type, depending on the result you’re looking for.

During my consultation, I explained that I wanted my hair to be more manageable, but not poker straight. As my hair is damaged from recently bleaching it, he started off by applying Olaplex. This is basically a saviour for bleached and colour treated hair, it rebuilds the broken bonds in damaged hair and totally transforms it to its virgin state – I’ll take two, please.

He then pulls over a rather scary looking device, which resembles a 1960’s hover, called a mist machine. This magical mist machine is placed over my head, which is then covered with a towel and left for 20 minutes. The mist helps penetrate the product deeper into the hair and produces a much better result, so my strands will end up stronger and smoother.

Next it’s onto the keratin treatment, which he paints onto my hair in sections, and then it’s another 20 minutes with the mist machine. More high tech hair tools, beaming ultrasound tongs that look like they belong in a sci-fi film are used to push the treatment into my hair, then it’s roughdried and straightened.

I ask him about the formaldehyde content, by now I’m sure you know the controversy surrounding keratin treatments because of this toxic ingredient. He tells me that a small amount of formaldehyde is vital for the treatment to work and anyone promising the same results with a formaldehyde free treatment is, to put it simply, lying to you. As long as the content is very low, you shouldn’t worry about it causing you any harm.

The whole processes takes about 2 hours and, unlike some other treatments, I don’t need to worry about suffering with greasy hair for three days before I can wash it out. I can tie it up, tuck it behind my ears and wash it on the same day – hurrah, it’s a revelation!

The verdict? My hair is much softer, shinier and drying time has been halved. While it’s by no means straight, it is certainly less frizzy and much easier to work with and will stay that way for up to 3 months. When I recently went for a blow dry, the hairdresser commented on what good condition my hair was in, which is seriously a first, so all the tech wasn’t just for show. I’m already counting down the days till my next appointment…

The London hairdresser to suit your mood – as well as your hair

Whether you need a pick-me-up or want somewhere with a holistic vibe, there’s a salon for every requirement

BEST FOR… SPIRITUAL

BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT WITH ZOLTAN VARGYAI IS SOMETHING OF A STRUGGLE. LONDON’S FOREMOST TEXTURE EXPERT MAY BE ABLE TO TAME THE FRIZZIEST OF LOCKS (MINE) INTO SOMETHING APPROACHING WASHED SILK, BUT HE’S HARD TO PIN DOWN. FOR A START, HE FREQUENTLY DEPARTS FOR INDIA OR OTHER FAR-FLUNG CORNERS OF THE GLOBE TO PERFECT HIS YOGA TECHNIQUE. AND THEN, HE OPERATES FROM A VARIETY OF SALONS, DEPENDING ON HIS MOOD. YOU MUST SIMPLY ADOPT A ZEN ATTITUDE UNTIL HE REAPPEARS AGAIN. IT’S WORTH THE WAIT, BECAUSE THERE IS NO ONE ALIVE WHO KNOWS MORE ABOUT HAIR CONDITION THAN HE DOES. HE NEVER TAKES A CLIENT UNTIL HE’S HAD A CONSULTATION WITH THEM, AND THEN HE USES A COMBINATION OF SMOOTHING, STRAIGHTENING, MOISTURISING AND CONDITIONING TECHNIQUES TO SEND EVERY WOMAN AWAY WITH A HAIRDO ANY SUPERMODEL WOULD BE PROUD OF.
