The Steampod to me has truly become a game changer.
My name is Jess Gonzalvez. I’m a L’Oreal Professionnel national artist.
I will say, the Steampod has changed my life. I generally have pretty curly hair, but I love to wear it straight or kind of like a cute blowout.
If I over style or overheat my hair, I end up with dry ends. I end up with split ends, and that’s not always cute, right?
When I was sent the Steampod a couple of months ago, I was like, okay, you know, let me try this out. I fell in love with it immediately.
We’re gonna dive in a little bit deeper into the technology behind it and why it is such a monumental tool in our industry today.
Okay, so the words, 2x faster, 2x smoother, and 91% less breakage — that to me, I was like, ‘Okay, is that true? Let’s test it out.’
So for a couple months, I was like, ‘Alright, this is going to be the only tool that I’m using, I really want to see what this is going to do for my hair.’
And it lived up to its expectations.
It honestly leaves my hair looking super healthy, a really shiny finish.
Honestly, I have a lot less breakage than I ever have had before in my life. But I feel like I can grow my hair longer. I feel like one of my clients use it. They’re not overusing a tool.
So I know when they’re going home with their fresh color, they’re not going to, like, overheat their hair and they’re not going to use too much heat on their hair.
It has an intelligent heat control. So there’s three settings it goes from 350° to 410°. And the most amazing thing about it is you can use it on any hair type. Because of those heat settings.
The steam helps keep the hair looking shiny. It keeps it healthy, because what ends up happening when you add too much heat to the hair, there’s not enough moisture in the hair.
That’s the technology of it. Now the tool itself has a comb on it, right, and then has the down arrows. So before I use it, I let my hair air dry.
And I’m like okay, boom, I know I’m gonna get my hair done in 20 minutes when typically a blow dryer for me takes me like an hour from wet to dry.
What I do is I section my hair out, I brush through my hair first I grab my section, and I always place my tool going down. When you see those arrows on it like truly keep the arrows facing down and you honestly can get your hair nice and smooth in one smooth motion.
You can keep the hair super straight. You can give it a blowout look kind of what I have today. Because the cord moves with it, you can really rotate and get a different bend in your hair you can go to curl you can smooth out the underneath so it does simulate a blow dry.
Another thing that I’ve noticed is typically when I blow dry my hair or I curl it whatever. The next day I wake up, I work out, and I need to reheat style my hair. So that’s where that breakage comes in, right, when we’re constantly heat styling our hair and we’re never giving our hair a break.
Once I use the Steampod I truly really don’t have to do touch up. Yes, sometimes I, like, go over the hairline, all of that, but I never truly have to restyle my hair after I’ve used the Steampod.
So the less heat I’m putting on my hair or my clients’ hair or my friends or my family’s hair, the less heat it’s better for your hair, right?
So that that keeps your hair healthy. That keeps your hair feeling and looking its best all the time. So that is why I love the Steampod. It is
truly a game changer, and I challenge you all to use it. Love it. Tag me in it all. And I hope you guys have a great rest of your day.
