Have you heard? Steam is the new black!
|Voted Marie Claire UK's Best Hair Innovation 2020. With hair health top priority, the innovative Steampod styler uses steam technology combined with Pro-Keratin technology instead of the traditional heated plates. Sold yet?|
L'Oreal's patented steam technology in the Steampod 3.0 just might be the best thing to come out of the last year. We spend hours each week putting hot plates on our hair to get the straightest locks or smoothest curls, but it's time to blow your mind...
With the continuous steam flow you'll be 2x faster straightening your hair than your usual straightener meaning less damage.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The L'Oreal Steampod 3.0 is a revolutionary steam straightener with innovative technology that uses the combination and power of heat and steam to straighten hair. The steam allows for faster shaping of the hair fibre thanks to the water molecules that are created when steam is applied. It allows the perfect balance between performance and care.
STRAIGHT OR WAVY
HOW TO USE
Fill up the water tank, which is fully integrated into the handle, with demineralised water. (The tank can straighten up to 192m of hair without needing to refill it!)
Fit the water tank back into the handle.
Switch the styler on. There are different temperatures to choose from (180 - 210 depending on your hair type. Once it stops flashing it is ready.
Section off your hair into small sections and do one section at a time to provide optimal contact with the hair fibre.
Run the Steampod slowly over the section to allow the steam to pre-smooth the hair while ensuring the arrow on the side of the styler is facing down.

STRAIGHTENING STYLING TIPS
Use the Steampod 3.0 on small sections of hair at a time starting closely at the roots. Ensure that the arrow on the outside of the styler is facing downwards so that the comb will be at the bottom going through the hair before the steam and plates.
Glide slowly and gently through the hair so you will only require one or two applications per section.
CREATING WAVES STYLING TIPS
Place a small section of hair in the middle of the Steampod's plates and wrap it around the tool. Rotate the tool (ensuring the arrows on the tool are pointing towards the ends of your hair) whilst slowly gliding it downwards. Let the waves cool off for a few minutes before shaking or brushing them out for natural looking waves.
