When your hair is relaxed and or color treated, steaming is one of the best things you can do to pamper your hair. Hair steaming is beneficial as the heat aids in hydrating dry hair leaving your parched tresses happy.
Steaming has allowed your hair to retain moisture, increase softness and stimulate growth.
Steam once a week: A weekly dose of steaming adds extra hydration to the hair. Over time, steaming aids in improving elasticity and moisture retention.
Grab a washcloth: Steaming generates a lot of heat and the moisture may run down your face or drip onto your shoulder. Use a washcloth to wipe your face or wear a headband to absorb the moisture, preventing it from dripping down.
Steam for 20-30mins per session: The duration of your steam session is everything! Be sure to stay put under that steamer for maximum hydration. Give your cuticles time to lift and absorb the conditioner.
Clip your hair up: It’s important to have all of your hair, ends included, under the steamer. Your ends are the oldest part of your hair so having them under the steamer ensures they will receive all the benefits.
Cool down: After a steaming session, it’s key to wait until your hair is cool to the touch and then rinse the conditioner out. Cool hair signifies that the cuticles are officially closed sealing all the benefits of the conditioner inside the hair shaft.
