I was at Heritage Hair on two separate occasions; the first time for my hair straightening and a second time after a week for highlights.
I'm born with ultra thick, frizzy and dry hair with natural curls.
My usual hair after a wash:
Not only am I required to sit at the salon for very long hours just to get my hair done, I also need maximum chemical mix in order for my hair to achieve effects which I requested for.
Hence the Hair Salon which I visit has to have hairstylists with alot of strength (to 'kiap' my hair for very long hours), be extremely patient throughout all treatment processes as well as to listen to me talk talk talk and talk for the next 4 to 5hours...
My hairstylists are the most patient humans in this world. :)
This time round, I wanted a hairstyle which is easy to maintain and here's what Heritage Hair gave me for the New year, my birthday and the rest of the events.
Take a look at my Before and after photos.

MinuteManSG's first visit to the salon and Kenn worked out something for him for the New Year too:
A lighter hair colour(Hazelnut Brown) for the DreamGuy and new haircut for S$99:
Steampod Straightening Treatment
Meanwhile I was doing Steampod Straightening to get rid of my frizzy, dry-looking and anyhow-curl-here-curl-there hair:
Steampod Treatment is like rebonding where a preparation cream, which is packed with cuticle-smoothing keratin and ceramides, is applied to the hair. However unlike using a normal hair straighener, the treatment gets a bit more focused with the use of a specialized straightening iron which releases steam while the detangling comb attachment straightens and add a high gloss shine to your hair. This tool delivers a localized stream of high pressure steam to the hair shaft, deeply hydrating the hair without causing heat damage or drying it out.
Notice a black box with the iron in the picture?
That's a water filtration system to produce pure steam to rehydrate and nourish damaged hair.
Steampod is suitable for ALL hair types as the tool has five temperature settings which can be adjusted to suit your hair, even coarse, curly and thick locks can reap its shine-boosting benefits. The steampod tool can also be used to curl and volumise the hair!
One can immediately notice the shine and softness!
My front portion is done and already taken 1++ hour.
In the steampod straightening process, the hairsylist can only straighten a very small segment at a time (say about 50 strands?) to make sure every strand of hair is moisturized and steamed to perfection.
NOTE: This treatment was not done on my bleached area (front 2 sides of my hair with lighter shades).
Here's Week 1 of my hair, steampod straightening, done.
Steampod Straightening starts from S$228 at Heritage Hair.
All ready for Christmas!
And just in time for my Christmas carolling gig at Jurong Point the following day!
