Steaming natural hair has become exceedingly popular within the last few years. Steaming natural hair helps restore lost moisture back into the hair as well as helps products penetrate the hair! We are loving the Huetiful steamer and Q-Redew. Check out the benefits of steaming natural hair below.
1. Opens the Hair Cuticle
Steaming the hair allows the hair cuticle to lift or open to easily allow products to penetrate the hair, giving your hair the nutrients it needs to get into the hair strands.
2. Eliminates Dry Hair
One of the most obvious and immediate benefits of steaming hair is eliminating dry hair. By steaming your hair you are adding moisture to dry, damaged hair strands.
Ditch the plastic bag and hour under the hair dryer. Steaming your hair does not require a plastic bag and 10 minutes is really all you need to get noticeable results.
4. Strengthens Hair
If your hair has been dry, damaged, or weak, steaming your hair can help. Steaming hair helps strengthen it by adding moisture to rebuild elasticity to keep hair from breaking.
5. Renews Curls
Steaming hair helps to revive curls, and enhance their natural appearance. Think beautiful, soft, moisturized curls!
