Why You Need the L’Oreal Steampod 3.0

Have you heard about the L’Oréal Steampod and want to know what all the fuss is about? We at COBIA are all for versatile tools and the Steampod 3.0 is one of the most unique thermal stylers on the market. With over 30 patents, it has achieved the perfect balance between performance and care. Let’s dive into the details about why the Steampod is so unique, and how it’s become one of our best selling thermal tools since its launch. 

Forget the damage

Like the name suggests, the Steampod 3.0 uses steam to style your hair as opposed to conventional thermal stylers that use heated plates. L’Oreal has claimed that it will lead to 78% less damage and 91% less breakage compared to normal flat irons or curling irons. In addition to the less-damaging steam, the high resistance ceramic double plates and integrated comb help by pre-combing your hair and seamlessly styling in one pass. Forget the pulling and tugging – trust us, your hair will thank you!

Steam technology does the work for you!

Now you may be asking – why use steam? There are multiple benefits in using steam to style your hair, of course the most obvious is reducing the amount of breakage and damage. Steam can actually style your hair 2X faster than conventional thermal plates – this means that you don’t have to repeat sections and can be on your way in no time! With 3 heat settings, you can actually control the temperature of the steam the way you would normally adjust your straightener or curling iron. This is beneficial since you can pick the temperature that best suits your hair needs. In addition, with constant and automatic heat control at a rate of 2 times/second, you can trust that the temperature you pick is maintained throughout styling.

Say goodbye to poof and say hello to longer lasting styles

Normal stylers use heated plates that cause water and moisture to leave your hair so when you go outside, it re-absorbs water and you get the dreaded “poof”. No one likes that after spending time on their hair! By using steam, you are actually infusing your hair with hydration while styling so that you can forget about dryness, static, and poof. Steam is made up of extremely small water molecules that can penetrate the hair fiber. As a result, your style will not budge or experience the “poof” but will stay as-styled much longer than you’re likely used to. Who doesn’t want that?! Check out some of these before and after photos to see the type of styles that are at your fingertips with the Steampod 3.0. L’Oreal also came out with 3 specific styling products to use with the Steampod – the Protective Smoothing Serum, the Thin Milk (for fine to normal hair) and the Thick Cream (for thick or coarse hair). All are steam-activated and offer strengthening and smoothing benefits – be sure to check them out

In case you haven’t gotten the idea, we at COBIA LOVE the Steampod 3.0 – we are all about less damage, cutting edge technology and long-lasting styles and this tool delivers it all. You won’t need another flat iron or curling iron in your life - It is definitely worth the investment!
