This is the one!

Upon using the L'Oreal professional steampod I was immediately impressed by its exceptional performance and design. The amount of heat in such a quick time was remarkable and the modern design adds a touch of sophistication to its overall appeal. It is clear that a great deal of thought has been put into every aspect of this product I would recommend it to everyone including my own friends and family.. Show details

Can handle my thick frizzy hair in good time

After my old GHD died after 17 years, my sister highly recommended this to me. I was worried about hair pulling (I have so much frizzy/curly/thick hair), but have found the comb isn't a problem. If you press too hard, it might pull a little, but it seems to happen very infrequently.
It is a little heavier, but given that it works well, it is quick to get through my hair. I like that it doesn't need to be too hot (185 is good enough). Make sure only to use distilled water (at Woolworths) or distill you own which is easy to do. Show details

Awful. Avoid avoid avoid

Ive blonde hair which was in excellent condition and this FRIED my hair where it broke off in my hand. Dont recommend as no one wants to buy of me for even 100 euro. Such a waste of money Show details

What a disappointment

This is not what I was expecting
I bought the steampod one week ago. When I used it for the first time I was shocked! It damaged my hair and I had to cut it next day! I have really thick hair. Very disappointed... Show details

Can’t believe there are bad reviews!

I brought the original steam pod about 5 years ago I have thin bleached curly frizzy hair, I let it dry naturally and in minutes I can straighten it smooth - it’s amazing! The best tool I have ever used! And it stays straight…even in humidity or after a bit of a run in with rain! I cannot fault the steam pod and I can’t believe hairdressers don’t use it. I have used it on all my friends with the same frizzy hair and they all feel the same way, it is brilliant! I have 3 Ghd’s all gathering dust in my drawer. If you have frizzy hair I 100% guarantee you will never regret buying a steam pod! Show details

Finally!

I can’t believe I’ve found a straightener that works on my coarse, thick, wavy long hair. Usually it takes me 2 hours of passing over my hair multiple times with the straightener plus slathering it in serums and creams to get it semi straight, only for it to turn into fluffy straw in 10 minutes. I go over each section of hair just once with this and it’s as straight as only a really good hairdresser has been able to get it. Not sure about damage yet as I don’t straighten every day but glides pretty smoothly.

Definitely pricey and bulky but so worth it, I’ve been sending a fortune on serums and shampoos and masks anyway with no result Show details

Snapped hair

Oh my goodness. These have made me cry. My hair was in such good condition. After using these just once my hair has white bits and is snapping off. I have lost so much hair. It's currently nearly down to my waist. I think I'm going to have to have several inches cut off. Absolutely devastated. Show details

Works well but I believe it damaged my hair more than a regular straightener over time

Loved it at first! Then noticed I needed a trim every few weeks compared to every couple months before I started using the steampod! Went back to my regular straightener iron after about 6 months... Show details

Why does my steampod smells so bad? Am I the only ome with this problem?

Sylvia Z.

Fill the water receptacle with a bit of vinegar and hot water, let sit for 10 mins or so than rinse thoroughly. It should smell fresh again.

Does the steampod 2.0 switch off automatically?

My steampod has all of a sudden stopped producing steam and now all the temperatures lights are flashing… anyone have any luck fixing this themselves? I love this product and don’t want to be without! Very expensive to suddenly just stop working :(

Features:

The L’Oreal Steampod, which has a promising review rating of 4.1 stars, can be used to straighten, as well as create waves and curls. The most recent model is the Steampod 3.0, which has the following features.

  • It uses a continuous steam flow, double technology plates and an integrated comb, which both detangles hair while styling and holds it in place while you create waves.
  • An integrated water tank gives you the freedom to style up to 192m of hair (for reference, that’s more than one full head of thick hair) without needing to refill the water tank.
  • Intelligent heat control lets you use 3 heat settings ranging from 180 to 210°C, so that it works on all hair types.
  • The straightener has a rotating cord that helps you prevent tangling so you can achieve curls easily.

Points of praise:

  • A number of reviewers liked the fact that the Steampod completely removed frizz from their previously untameable hair.
  • They also found that their hair looked shinier and generally in better condition after using this straightener.
  • Reviewers appreciated the quick heat-up time of the straightener, as well as how little time it took to style their hair.

A point of pain:

  • Some reviewers found that the straightener had a bulkier design than they would have liked, which sometimes made it tricky to handle and take up a lot of space in travel bags.
