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.
If you’re wondering what L'Oréal Professionnel’s Steampod is and how it differs from other flat irons, keep scrolling for everything you need to know.
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 create any hairstyle you want two times smoother and two times faster* with long-lasting, high-shine results. The comb on the plates helps the tool glide effortlessly through the hair as you style to avoid tugging and pulling.
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 does the L'Oréal Professionnel Steampod work?
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, including glossy waves, glass hair, and more.
