A lot of the time I feel like the effort doesn’t match the result when I do my hair myself. Plus all that heat damage… that’s that shit I don’t like. But… leave it up to L’Oréal to answer my DIY-prayers with my new favourite S-word: Steampod! Since I’m not genetically blessed with Pocahontas hair, this baby is my new favourite beauty-tool.
Steamy but caring
The L’Oréal Steampod is a hair straightener that works by releasing steam into your hair to straighten it. Think of it as a fancy flat-iron. Which means that heat is targeted more precise into the hair-shaft than with a traditional iron. So less heat is needed to achieve the same, or an even better, result. A range of Keratin treatments are also made available to treat the hair before using the Steampod. A Keratin treatment is a hair-treatment which can restore health to damaged hair by bonding keratin proteins to it. L’Oréal came out with a matching Steampod Replenishing Smoothing Cream. But if your hair is in desperate need of a bit more TLC, you can also use the CHI Keratin Silk Infusion. You can put this in your hair before you start steaming but this is completely optional, any good heat protection product will do just fine.
