I'm happy with this purchase as I have very coarse hair and have tried many products it takes only half the time that other straighteners have taken and also results last longer definitely worth the $$$$$$. Love how it has different temperature options and heats up super fast. Does not seem to snag on my hair at all.
Amazing results every time! My hair feels so much softer and smoother after using the L]Oreal Steampod when compared to my old GHD hair straighter. It also stays straighter for longer and is a lot quicker to use. It is definitely worth the money! I feel like it isn't doing as much damage to my hair as normal straighteners, so hopefully my hair condition will improve in time. The only negative I can think of is that it is a bit bigger most other straighteners, so would take extra room when travelling. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends!
Beats ghd for condition!
I've used Ghd's since they came out and I always bought the latest edition that came out as I have coarse thick high lighted hair that had begun to snap off during years of damage with colour and heat.I changed my hairdresser last month and the new one used the steam pod on my hair,with excellent results!I purchased one straight away and already feel the benefits compared to the platinum ghd styler.The steampod is a bit harder to use than ghd but once you get more familiar with it it's fine.ive been able to grow my hair without getting it cut frequently because of the dry ends,so,I would say the steampod is better for the hair in the end,smooth results every time!
I've spent 30+ years trying to find the perfect hair straightener......so many products and devices in my cupboard! But this L'Oréal Steam Pod wins hands down. For the last 15 years I've used a GHD and while reasonably happy with the result still had days where my coarse frizzy hair just didn't play the game. I read the reviews etc for the Steam Pod and thought they sounded too good to be true. I was wrong. Not only is it super easy to use it also only took about 5 minutes to get my mid length hair to salon straight as opposed to 30 mins for 'kinda straight but NQR' hair.
Am I dreaming??????????
Super happy with this handy, easy to use hair straightener. Heats up & Cool down really fast. It is not that heavy compare to other straightener so I can take as long as I want without getting tired. Especially I don't feel like my hair is falling or getting pulled, it's smooth.
Can't live without it!
I used every different type of straigner and none of them seemed to keep my hair straight, as soon as I went outside it went fuzzy again, as soon as I got my steam pod my hair has been smooth silky and shiny and stays so straight I don't have to touch it for the day! It has even gave me more convidence. Well worth the money amazing product
Changed my life!!!!
Seems to actually change the structure of my hair so it is really smoooth and silky - something that could never be achieved with any other straightener on the market. Believe me I have tried them all over the years form the most expensive to the cheapest!!! I have been using this for 3 years now and my hair isn't any more damaged that with any other straightener when used daily. I still have the same amount of split ends every three months when I have it trimmed which is to be expected. Having said that I do have thick strong hair that can...withstand a lot. The other huge advantage of the steam pod is that when you go out in the damp - it doesn't frizz and actually stays straight. The most amazing straighteners ever in my opinion. Could not live without them now!!!
Salon look but is intensely damaging over time
This will make you look like you walked out of the salon it is sleek and smooth does hold but be warned of a few things and for me these were deal breakers.
No good for daily use
Comb your hair root to tip with a fine tooth comb if you don't it will snag, and burn and snap at the knot. I have healthy hair no chemical damage but it does singe the hair after a week or two I found little white tips at ends of hair closer inspection is snapping and singed ends splits.
In my opinion this is a brilliant straightener but in saying this the damage it causes is one of the worst I ever had if you used for just special occasions then it would be amazing daily use no no no no no way!
Straightens and smooths better than my GHD
Purchased this product years ago after my hairdresser got it and raved about it. I have since purchased the newer model Dec 2015 for my daughter, who has super curly hair and she no longer leaves mine in her bathroom all the time. The new version is slimmer and sleeker than the original and much easier to hold and manoeuvre than the more cumbersome original ( but worth it). The products you use work better as they are steamed , so be careful to used less than usual .
I love my steampod, couldn't live with out it!
So much so that when I had to have mine repaired as water pump broke I had to wait 7!weeks to have part replaced! Extremely disappointed with loreal over that, countless emails with them over that with no results. Apart from that would still recommend steampod to anyone looking to get one. looking to buy one for my daughter, have seen one online that is white,looks amazing but is this the real deal or a fake can't tell by going on loreal website
Great results when it is working properly!
Hi. I bought the L'Oréal steampod last year. It worked great. My hair was silky and smooth and had a lot of body. I recommended it to so many people and after they saw how great my hair looked went and bought the steampod. It worked beautifully.
After having it for 1 year however, the steam part of the steampod has stopped working. So now it is operating like just a flat iron. I paid so much money for this item that I expected it to last for years like other flat irons do. Unfortunately, this is not so. So I no longer feel confident recommending this product to my friends or co-workers as it is a big investment for a 1 year benefit.
