FAULT Magazine reviews Momoko Permanent Hair Straightening at Trevor Sorbie Covent Garden

If you’re anything like me, your morning routine probably involves waking up 5 hours earlier than you should just so you can get yourself prepped and ready for the day to come. Leaving breakfast, my workout, make-up and getting dressed routine aside, I usually have to allocate at least half an hour to taming my hair into a half decent look.


Mind you, over the past few years, I’ve put my locks through hell. Bleaching, constant hair straightening, some more bleaching and then obviously the end result was something that I was less than happy with.I’ve also got curly hair so you can only image what came out of the whole thing. So I’ve decided to take my hair’s faith into my own hands and started looking for a treatment that would save me time and also strengthen my locks.


After doing some research, sometimes the keratin treatments that have been on the market for years just don’t get the job done, especially if you’re looking for a sleek look to last you months.That’s how I stumbled upon the Momoko permanent hair straightening treatment and thought I’d give it a try. It’s a revolutionary method that lasts for months and has been in the UK for only five years now.

You can find Momoko in selected salons across London. Trevor Sorbie is the official salon in which Momoko is used and also the salon that performs all the necessary training for hairdressers.


It’s a two-stage process – there’s the consult and the actual treatment. Going into Trevor Sorbie, one of their Momoko specialists takes a good look at your hair and decides which products are best to use in order to get that particular look that you’re going for. It’s especially useful if you’re looking for a natural bouncy result.


Second stage is the treatment itself that takes about 3 to 4 hours to finish. I had the pleasure to be in Nathan Jay Walker’s skillful hands from start to finish. He’s Trevor Sorbie’s International Technical Director and as far as good hair care goes, it doesn’t get much better than that.


Aside from the pampering that comes as a package with Trevor Sorbie, I was more than pleased with the end result as well. After the treatment, my hair was not only sleek and straight, but also stronger and lifted.


In terms of aftercare, don’t make too many plans afterwards. You’re not allowed to wash your hair for 48 hours or even put it in a ponytail, just so you don’t end up with creases. It’s all worth it though. After my first wash, the frizz was absolutely gone and I only needed about 5 minutes to get the same result I got in the salon in the first place.


If you’re looking for long-term solutions for your hair troubles, the Momoko Permanent Hair Straightening treatment is the way to go.
