The L'Oréal Steampod


I recently acquired the L'Oréal Steampod and I must say that I'm very impressed by the results. I have wavy hair, which I don't like, as I like my hair to be very straight, but the flatening iron is quite bad for the hair and gives it a 'cardboard' still aspect which isn't very nice. The Steampod is quite different from a flatening iron, because it's a pro-keratin hair treatment which is activated by the steam of the iron.

J'ai récemment acquis le Steampod de L'Oréal et je dois dire que je suis très impressionnée par les résultats. J'ai les cheveux ondulés et je n'aime pas ça, car j'aime qu'ils soient bien raides, mais le fer à lisser les abîme et leur donne un aspect quelque peu "cartonné" et figé. Le Steampod est assez différent du fer à lisser, car c'est un traitement à la pro-kératine qui est activé par la vapeur du fer.

Here's what it looks like:
Le voici :


It's actually quite easy to use. First of all, you need to wash your hair as you would normally do and let it dry naturally. When it's dry, apply the pro-keratin treatment from the root to the tip of your hair:

Il est très facile à utiliser. Vous devez tout d'abord laver vos cheveux normalement et les laisser sécher à l'air libre. Lorsqu'ils sont secs, appliquez le traitement à la pro-kératine des racines aux pointes :


Straighten you hair like you would normally do with a traditionnal flatening iron. Don't worry about the smoke, it's actually the iron's steam!

Lissez vos cheveux comme vous le feriez avec un fer à lisser traditionnel. Ne vous inquiétez pas si ça fume, il s'agit en fait de la vapeur du fer!







Here are the results:

Voici les résultats :




My hair is instantly softer, shinier, and I finally got that 'Just got a new haircut' feeling that I'd be longing for. And the magic of it: it takes me 10 minutes tops to do my hair! The downside of is that it's actually more expensive than a flatening iron (157€ with a 10% discount here with a free shipping), but I found an online shop that allowed me to pay for it in 3 installments without fees. And honestly (this post is not sponsored), it is by far my best investment in the last few years!

Mes cheveux sont plus doux, plus brillants et j'ai enfin obtenu cet aspect "Je sors de chez le coiffeur" que je recherchais depuis longtemps. Le gros avantage, c'est que ça ne me prend que 10 minutes! L'inconvénient est qu'il est plus cher qu'un fer à lisser standard (157€ avec 10% de réduction ici sans frais de port), mais j'ai trouvé un e-shop qui m'a permis de le payer en 3 fois sans frais. Honnêtement (cet article n'est pas sponsorisé), c'est le meilleur investissement que j'ai fait depuis longtemps!

  9. I'm impressed with the result. I'm just like you. My hair is wavy and I want it sleek and straight!! I haven't tried this one yet but I'm so lazy when it comes to straightening with the flatening iron. Sure looks amazing :D
    Have a lovely weekend with your girls!

  15. That is really impressive! I have SUCH curly hair and rarely straighten it because it literally takes me an hour and I hate spending that much time on my hair. I just cut a bunch of it off though (I haven't posted any blog photos with my new hair, but I have posted on instagram in case you are curious) so maybe it will take less time to do now. We shall see.

    Have a great weekend. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog. I do agree, a tan coat is an absolute must.

  81. Je confirme tes propos... ce fer est révolutionnaire... je me permets juste d'ajouter que l'on peut aussi se sécher les cheveux au sèche cheveux si l'on ne peut les laisser sécher à l'air libre... et à force de l'utiliser, les cheveux se remettent en place d'eux même parfois sans même avoir besoin de recourir au steampod... c'est vraiment efficace et très sain pour les cheveux... je l'utilise depuis plus d'un an et ne peux plus m'en passer !!!

  83. This looks great! My hair is crazy curly and I get it blown out at salon weekly, occasionally I get a condition treatment and use of a steam pod which I need for home use really this loreal one looks more streamlined than the salon one the use on me which is obviously appealing to me more. I'm going to check this one out. Thanks! :)
