For anyone who suffers from unruly hair like myself, then the professional L’Oreal Steampod 2.0 is the hairstyling tool that you must try! Take a look at what a fantastic job this Steampod 2.0 has done to my head of hair the results speak for themselves, we even have a video demonstrating the styling tool in action.
I have extremely unruly, thick, frizzy hair and it really is the bane of one’s life! I haven’t been blessed with the best hair in life, the texture is very dry and course and this hasn’t helped with colouring my hair over the years, but I don’t fancy turning grey just yet!
Why the Steampod 2.0 helps me with styling
I have one of those hair types that is a nightmare to style and keep under control. It is neither straight nor curly just somewhere in between in the nightmare zone!
I have tried various lotions and potions over the years to attempt to calm and condition my tresses, yet never found anything to make it resemble actual hair.
When I was asked to try the new L’Oreal Professionnel Steampod 2.0 I was excited but also a little apprehensive, after all, I had purchased and tried out practically every hairstyling tool on the market from straighteners, styling brushes to curlers and crimpers.
I didn’t want to get too excited that Steampod 2.0 would be the hairstyling tool to finally work and stop my search for the ‘Miracle hair tool’.

Using the Steampod 2.0
Using the Steampod 2.0 couldn’t be easier, you simply fill the pod with water, switch on, choose your desired temperature and wait a few minutes for the steam to start.
Before I used the Steampod, I prepped my hair whilst wet with the Steampod Replenishing smoothing cream. A Pro-Keratin enriched smoothing cream that has been specifically designed and formulated to be activated by the Steampod for an anti-frizz effect that lasts for up to three days. I was then ready to create sleek, smooth hair in the same way as you would use a hair straighter.
As you can see from the picture this is the before picture! I had already washed and blow-dried my hair and this the horrendous result.
I divided my hair into sections as I would before using any styling tool then got set to work running the Steampod plates down sections of my hair. Even on my first attempt, I found using the Steampod simple and stress-free, I even managed to straighten my hair in half the time I normally would when using a GHD hair straightener.
This picture shows one-half of my hair straightened with the L’oreal Steampod 2.0, I am sure you can clearly see the difference.
I completed the look using a small amount of Steampod Protective Smoothing Serum. The Steampod Serum works by helping to resurface and re-seal the cuticles of the hair fibre for a mirror-like shine. It is enriched with oils of Avocado and Apricot and smells gorgeous.
I could not hide how excited I was with the results, I had never had hair that felt so smooth and actually like hair and not a mass of frizz! The real test of time would be how long my hair stayed looking this good and I am pleased to report that after 3 days my hair still remained smooth and straight without the need of using any hair styling tool.
This is truly something I have never experienced before and I will not be switching back. It has given me a new confidence now my hair looks this good and I will never feel ashamed of my hair again.
I tried the Steampod 2.0 out on a family member with lovely thick, healthy, wavy hair that had never been coloured and here are the results.
