As much as we love air-drying our hair and embracing our natural texture, when it comes to achieving those undeniably flawless good hair days, nothing does the job like a flat iron. Whether you’re trying to tame your bedhead, create curls, or get the perfect sleek, pin-straight look, flat irons are an absolute necessity in your styling routine.
Over the years, however, we’ve discovered that not all flat irons are created equal—and when we heard about L'Oréal Professionnel’s Steampod we knew that the innovative styling tool would be a must-have. Read on to learn all about the steam-powered flat iron, including how to use it and the benefits of having the innovative tool in your routine.
What is the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod?
If you’ve ever used a traditional flat iron before, you know that they work by flattening hair between ceramic, tourmaline, or titanium plates to create a sleek, smooth texture. The trouble, however, is that reaching for flat irons too often can result in serious hair damage (even with the help of a quality heat protectant). If you have thick or coarse strands, styling your mane with a hair straightener can also be a time-consuming process.
Unlike typical flat irons, the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod uses patented steam technology and dual heating plates to straighten or wave any hair type two times faster and two times smoother with 91 percent less breakage over time** when using exclusive steam and comb technology. The comb on the plates helps the tool glide effortlessly through the hair as you style to avoid tugging and pulling.*Compared to Steampod without steam and comb (heating plates only) **After 15 uses with steam and integrated comb vs. Steampod heating plates alone.
Is the Steampod better for your hair?
If heat damage is your main concern, the Steampod’s steam and comb technology help to reduce split ends for 91 percent less breakage* (when compared to Steampod heating plates alone). As you style, steam is diffused from the plates, infusing water into the hair cuticle, which helps protect against excessive heat damage.
How do you use the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod?
If you’re unsure how to style your hair with the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod, it’s easier than you think! Simply remove the attached water tank and fill it with water. Then, choose between the heat settings. With intelligent heat control, there are three heat settings ranging from 350°F to 410°F, checked up to two times per second for even use.
Wait until the light stops flashing, and your tool has reached the desired temperature. Apply a heat protectant, then use the Steampod to create your desired hairstyle.
Can you curl with L'Oréal’s Steampod?
When it comes to styling, the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod is versatile. You can create sleek, straight hairstyles, waves, or curls.
Is Steampod good for short hair?
Steampod can be used on any hair length, as long as the strands can fit comfortably within the width of the plates.
Can you use the Steampod without the comb?
You can style your hair without the detachable comb. Before removing it, however, be sure that the iron is cool to avoid getting burnt.
Can I use Steampod without water?
To achieve the best results, It’s recommended to use the Steampod with the correct amount of water in the tank.
