Steampod FAQs

 


WHAT IS A STEAMPOD HAIR STRAIGHTENER?



A high tech steam straightening iron with a professional very high continuous steam flow.

 

HOW DOES STEAMPOD WORK?

Using a continuous flow of high pressure steam to target each strand without flattening the fibres, the hair styling tool features anodized ceramic plates to create an ultra-smooth finish with mirror-like shine.

 

HOW DOES STEAMPOD DIFFER TO A REGULAR STRAIGHTENER?

With regular straightener when you straighten hair and you see steam coming off the hair this is because water is evaporating from the hair/moisture is leaving the hair. Because the hair is made of water it acts like a sponge, so if its empty, void of moisture and you go outside and it’s humid, the hair will want to regain and retain the moisture, the weak bonds will be broken then by water and the hair reforms back into its natural state ie. It becomes frizzy!

With Steampod, the combination of heat and steam gently and durably style the hair without drying the core so that when you go outside in humid weather, the hair won’t take on any more water so it will keep its straightened state/style for longer.

HOW TO USE

 

HOW DO YOU USE A STEAMPOD?  

Direction of use: • The straightener must be used in the direction indicated by the arrows (comb always located at the bottom) so that the hair section is exposed to the steam before being straightened between the plates.

• Clasp the hair firmly between the plates; the steam starts spreading automatically as soon as the tongs are closed. Run your straightener slowly, from the root to the end of the hair so that the steam can spread to the heart of the hair section. 

 

CAN STEAMPOD BE USED ON WET HAIR?

For optimum results, we recommend the hair is 100% dry before using the Steampod.

 

CAN I USE THE STEAMPOD WITHOUT WATER?

We do not recommend using the Steam pod  without the correct level of water in the tank.
