WHAT IS A STEAMPOD HAIR STRAIGHTENER?
L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod 3.0 is a professional steam styler using patented steam technology to style your hair with professional results.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Using a continuous flow of high-pressure steam to target each strand without flattening the fibres, the hair styling tool features anodized ceramic plates to create an ultra-smooth finish with mirror-like shine.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE VS REGULAR HAIR STRAIGHTENERS?
Styling hair with a regular hair straightener, you see steam coming off the hair, this is because water is evaporating from the hair/moisture is leaving the hair.
Because the hair is made of water it acts like a sponge, so if its empty, void of moisture and you go outside and it’s humid, the hair will want to regain and retain the moisture, the weak bonds will be broken then by water and the hair reforms back into its natural state ie. It becomes frizzy!
With Steampod, the combination of heat and steam gently and durably style the hair without drying the core so that when you go outside in humid weather, the hair won’t take on any more water so it will keep its straightened state/style for longer.

How To Use
HOW DO YOU USE A STEAMPOD?
Directions for use: The Steampod styler must be used in the direction indicated by the arrows (comb always located at the bottom) so that the hair section is exposed to the steam before being straightened between the plates.
Clasp the hair firmly between the plates; When tongs are closed the steam spreads automatically. Run your Steampod slowly, from the root to the end of the hair so that the steam can spread to the heart of the hair section.
The continuous steam flow has been improved from 3.5g/min for Steampod 2.0 to 0.8g/min for the new Steampod 3.0, this has been reduced in V3 to enable a stronger and uniform concentration across the plate.
It additionally lasts for a whole head of thick hair (192M) with the same strong performance that consumers know & love about Steampod even though the watertank is a lot smaller than before.
