2) Patented Steampod 4 Technology

The iron SteamPod 4 uses patented steam technology. Thanks to the combination of heat and steam, it offers a balance between heat treatment and hair condition. Dry steam continuously diffuses from the plates, which creates visibly smooth hair in a short time and guarantees hydration of each strand. In addition, the steam fixes the hair, which is why it resists frizz and maintains a long-lasting effect.

Dry steam makes it possible to speed up the hair styling process and reduces the amount of heat required for hair styling. When hair is treated with steam, its exceptionally small water particles penetrate the hair fiber and break hydrogen bonds. This causes the keratin protein contained in the hair fiber to stretch and become flexible enough to allow the hair to be shaped as needed. This process reduces the amount of time the hair needs to be exposed to heat, creating a style 3x faster and with up to 95% less hair damage.
