Steampod flat iron. 50% smoother hair, 50% faster!


Welcome to the new generation of hair straightening! Today I'm going to review a brand new kind of a flat iron: Steampod by L'Oreal Professionel. As the name suggests, the key element is steam, providing a gentle innovative heat action whilst minimising heat damage to the hair.

L'Oreal claims that with a Steampod you'll see results that are up to 50% smoother and 50% faster compaired to a regular straightener, and I couldn't agree more with this claim! Personally, I find it *twice* faster to use and not only it straightens the hair, it turns it into silk! The first time I used it, I couldn't believe how awesome it was. And here I have to tell you that when it comes to hair products and tools, I'm *very* hard to impress!

Orange juice fasting: how to lose 3kg/7lbs in 3 days

Last year I lost 11 kilos or 24 pounds in 3 months and I started my weight loss from  orange juice fasting. Feel free to read my entire weight loss story while in this post I'd like to focus on orange juice fasting.

Before some of you start telling me that fasting in unhealthy, I have to tell you that the proper, timed way of fasting is actually approved by most doctors all over the world. I'd like to invite you to make your research and discover some amazing health benefits of short-term fasting including improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, insulin sensitivity as well as reducing the risk of diabetes and triggered immune cell regeneration. For example, you can read this article or this one. One of the best books I read about fasting is "The miracle of fasting" by Paul Bragg. With that said, it's true that there exist contraindications for fasting  and it's recommended to consult with your doctor before adopting a fast and adhere to it correctly. And since it's something that works great for me in all ways, I'd like to share with you my experience :)
