So why is steaming good for your hair?
Quench’s your thirsty hair
One of the biggest challenges for afro hair is keeping it hydrated, so if you like millions of people with afro hair are met with this challenge then steaming should most definitely be in your hair care regime. Steaming your hair aids in hydrating dry hair leaving your parched tresses happy.
Increase blood flow in your scalp
Often when your hair is thinning or lacking life, a head massage is often recommended to increase blood flow in your scalp. The same is true with steaming. The moist heat encourages blood flow, which in turn helps your hair to retain moisture, increase softness and stimulates growth.
It shows your scalp some love and maximises the ingredients in your products
The afro hair product industry is a billion pounds industry and not necessary a cheap industry either for us ladies who like to have only the best for our tresses, so if you’ve paid for premium hair products you want to make sure your hair feels the full benefits and steaming your hair can help you do that as the steam helps lift the hair cuticle allowing your treatments to penetrate deeply into the hair shaft and maximising on the products key benefits.
To put it simply…
Steaming your hair is one of the best things you can do to help it grow healthy and strong.
- Steam once a week. Over time you’ll really see the benefits of it improving elasticity and moisture retention.
- Give it at least 20-30mins per session. Doing this gives you cuticles time to take in the conditioner. Plus bonus time for e me-time, so kick back and let your stresses melt away too. Perfect time to meditate.
- It doesn’t take long after a steam, but make sure you cool down after a steam. Once the hair is cool you can be sure that that the cuticles are officially closed sealing all the benefits of the conditioner inside the hair shaft.
