Crispy hair ends
When I 1st had this straightener I couldn’t recommend it enough. It makes your hair appear shiny when you have straightened each section, however, when you look at your hair as the day goes on the shine has gone (just the steam maybe). I have been having very crunchy ends which appear white and also white dots which just snap off.
As I have bleached hair under dyed dark brown hair the damage is clear. Just cut my hair and salon used GHD it straighten - checked my ends all white end cut off. The following day I went over my hair with my steam pod and it’s damaged my ends straight away. Can’t believe these are being sold as a reducing damage product!! Don’t buy and save your money and your hair c
Not as good as expected...
I wanted to love this expensive tool but it didn't work for my fine and dense hair. After seeing the reviews on Youtube, I was convinced that this would do miracles for my hair but I was desilllusioned. It somewhat dried out my hair and it felt crunchy after the steam had evaporated. It also became quite complicated to comb through my fine hair.
I bought this is the hope that my hair would grow, using ghd's seems to break my hair and it never gets longer than just past shoulder length. The steampod is easy to use, I've not noticed any smell that other reviewers have commented on.. so far anyway. It can be a little harder to use due to the size but mostly because you can only use it one way, which is fine for the left side of my head but a lot harder for the other side purely due to the comb fitting one side only and catching before I'm ready to clamp. It left my hair as straight as ghd...'s, but definitely softer. I use the cream before blow drying and the serum before straightening, but I find the cream makes the hair tangle, so I'll be trying it with the serum only and imagine it will be a lot silkier. This is probably a matter of personal hair type. Mine is very thick, which is ironic as the cream is designed for thick hair. Over all I'm very happy but only time will tell if it grows anymore.. Update - September 2018. It grows!! I've had comments about my lovely new lengths, takes a while to get it back into good condition after years of dye and ghd's, but it's definitely longer and in better condition these days. I have noticed a problem when attempting to curl my hair, the lead doesn't turn 360 degrees, so you need to untangle it every few turns. Worth it for the results though. I also find the steam pod super easy to use, now that I'm used to them. And still no smell, I use deionised water so maybe this is why. All in all I love these straighteners and would recommend to anyone and everyone!
Girlfriend loves it!
This hair straightener is so easy to use and heats up within minutes of turning it on which is great when you are running late for anything. Very happy with the results from this product and it protects the hair very well. It does not snag hair during its operation and I would recommend to friends.
speedy and really, really effective
I love the ease and speed with which I can turn my hair from tangled bush to sleek "Sex in the City." I had never used one of these gizmos before, but now couldn't go a day without it -life-changing that's what it is!. The downside, the only one, is that I've had to upgrade on conditioners as my crowning glory is now a tad on the dry side, still, a good weekly dowsing with argon oil fixes that.
Much better than my previous straghtners
Excellent straighteners much better and kinder than my old ones that I used every day! My hair is in much better condition now than before and it's much quicker to use. The only thing is there is a strange smell when they heat up which I'm unsure what it is!! Other than that best hair straighteners by far.
Amazing of people with curly hair!!!
So happy with this straightener! My hair was always dull and as it is curly it would never stay straight for more than half a day before starting to frizz!! The steam pod saved my hair! If straightened with the pod it stays dead straight for days and it doesn't go curly in humid air, light rain or when sweating at the gym! Only washing it makes it go back to curls! Using the oil treats your hair too and makes it so shiny and feels great!! Highly recommended this with the use of the oil also!!!
You fill the reservoir with water and before too long the steam is ready. Steam comes out of the straightening tongs, which apparently adds moisture to the hair shaft as it straightens, instead of drying out the hair. That's why I purchased this, I had a ghd and it was ruining my hair! My hair was turning to straw with the ghd. This takes a bit more fiddling around to use, but worth it. Not cheap, but no good straighteners are. Innovative product!
Questions & Answers
I love my stead pod but recently it has stopped steaming. Is there somewhere I can get it fixed. The pod seems to allow water through. I think it's the lead or handles that are the problem. Help please!. Thanks Donna
What kind of water do I use for Steampod 2 and what name is it under to buy it?
Hi Jackie, I use tap water have been with my first one which I had for over 5 years and still working and now my new one aswel. Some people say to use distilled water so the steamers don’t clog up but both me and my sister never had an issue.
I bought mine online from my hair care and beauty which I used shopback as well to get 5% back.
My first one I Bought from hair house warehouse from memory.
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. 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. There is also now a Steampod 3.0 which is an upgraded version of the older Steampod 2.0 model.
What reviewers liked about the L’Oreal Steampod:
- Several reviewers liked the fact that the Steampod completely removed frizz from their previously untameable hair
- Hair looks shinier and generally in better condition after using this straightener
- Heats up quickly, as well as straightens hair efficiently
What reviewers didn’t like about this straightener:
- Bulky design made this straightener tricky to handle while using, and takes up a lot of space in a suitcase when travelling
- Sometimes users encountered issues with the steam function malfunctioning (often after having the straightener for over a year), which led to other problems, such as a leaking straightener.
