What is different with this model?

If you have ever come across a Steampod in the past, you will notice that this new edition is quite different from previous ones. The new L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod 3.0 is super sleek, has an integrated water reservoir and comb, and also a rotative cord which means that you can twist and turn it to your heart’s content, and never get tied up!

It’s really easy to fill the reservoir and comes with a little bottle that you refill. I find one ‘fill’ gets at least two full styling sessions, even on my long thick hair.

Speed and Damage Reduction

Key facts you need to know about this tool: it massively speeds up styling as the steam allows the plates to effortlessly glide through the hair. Also, there is up to 78% less damage compared to a regular straightening iron. And you can really feel the difference. This leaves my hair feeling super-soft and not at all dry, unlike a lot of tongs and straighteners.

L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod 3.0 – Tips for Use

To be completely honest, you don’t need loads of tips because it’s really easy to use.


I always use an oil on my hair when it is damp for conditioning and heat protection. My go to for wet hair is Kerastase Elixir Ultime.


I tend to section up the top part of my hair, and work on the under section first, before moving on to the top part. I use section widths of two to three inches and quickly work through, back to front.

No tangles

I simply make sure my hair is tangle free to help the plates glide through.

Comb Direction

Let It Cool

I always let my hair cool down before I touch it to ensure it sets into a long-lasting style.

  • I’m really tied between this and the newest GHD Platinum +. My hair is like yours in texture although not as long. My hair is quite porous and can look patched with straighteners so I always go over with a little oil afterwards.

    Do you think the Steampod 3 can also handle straightening a fringe?

    If you had a choice of the two, which would you go for?

    • I think I spoke to you on Instagram about this – but not sure!! Let me know!! xxx
