I bought the black Mightnight in Paris Steam Pod in the beginning of January and have been using it twice a week for the last five months without fail. Can't live without it now.
I have naturally curly hair and prefer soft waves, just looks the most flattering on me. Steam pod helps me achieve voluminous bouncy waves without tugging and with minimal damage.
I just wash and condition them, apply heat protectant, let them dry naturally or with the help of hair dried and separate in sections. Firstly I brush, glide along the strand to straighten and go back again while bending the wrist to form the wave. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube. About 30' need instead of my usual 60'+
I get super glossy hair and since there is not much friction and abuse I don't get much fallout. I'm convinced it's much more kind to the hair than traditional straighteners. Using distilled water is not much of an issue either, a huge 4L amount cost me about 2 euros and not even half has been finished yet.
Why not 5 stars then?
First of all it's too bulky to travel with, sadly. Because I'm addicted not and can't style my hair the way I want otherwise.
Secondly because of the size I can't grab firmly the very roots which is the curliest part and therefore have to use a small straightener with narrow plates to finish off the look or else it looks sloppy. Takes only 2' but having to use a separate tool is a bummer. Also if I want more defined curls in some spots I'll still use a curling iron too.
Overall it's not the hair device to end of all hair devices because I still need others for perfect hair but none can do its job so fast and so good.
Lastly the price. Frankly it's absurd. Also skip the patching hair products, they're nothing special. You're better off using your favourite heat protectant and finishing serum.
I would definitely buy again.
