We know, we know — hot tools dry out and damage our hair. We’re still going to use them though! It’s like how we know long, molten-hot showers are a beauty no-no, but we keep taking them anyway. Heat and hair will always go hand in hand for Us…but it would still be nice if it didn’t have to have such negative effects.
With some tools, you’re never going to win, but with L’Oreal Professionnel’s SteamPod, things are about to change. The SteamPod has actually been available in other countries before, but this newest, most advanced version is the first one available in the US, which means we can finally experience its greatness. Let Us tell you all about why this hair tool is life-changing!
Before you start feeling iffy about the price, know that this is a multi-purpose hair tool, created to straighten, wave or curl the hair. The exclusive steam technology alone is worth the price though, claiming to offer results twice as fast with up to 91% less breakage! It also utilizes an integrated comb, which is great for holding hair in place as you style rather than it slipping out from between the one-inch plates. You can always remove the comb too!
The SteamPod is for all hair types and textures, whether you’re looking to straighten bouncy curls or curl sleek, straight hair. The steam technology may help provide a shiny, healthy finish when you’re done. Just fill the little tank with distilled water, select from one of three temperature settings and start styling! Make sure hair is dry when you start. Each tank of water should last long enough to style a full head of thick hair!
To straighten your hair with the SteamPod, separate locks into small sections and glide the tool straight down from root to tip. There are actually arrows on the tool so you can tell if you’re holding it the right way!
If you’re looking to curl, place a small section of hair between the plates and then wrap the hair around the tool. Then, rotate the tool while slowly gliding downward. There is a rotating cord, so you won’t have to stress or strain your wrists as you twist! Let the waves cool off and then shake or brush them out for a more natural-looking curl!
Ready to experience the power of steam — and for your hair to actually enjoy feeling the heat? Try out the SteamPod professional styler today!
