Snowed-in Steaming!

Saturday, March 09, 2013



I was recently stuck inside because of a snow day, so decided to make the best of it and treat my hair a spa day! For the past two weeks I've been bunning and keeping my hair tucked away. But it was really craving water and moisture, so I couldn't wait to give just that. I decided to co-wash it and then follow up with a deep treatment under my steamer.  Speaking of my steamer - I'm soooo glad I invested in one. Since I live in an area that has cold weather, and since my hair is low porosity and can be more of a challenge in terms of moisture penetration - this steamer was literally love at first use for me. Check out my first experience steaming when I first got this steamer two years ago! Details of the products I used for this co-wash & steam treatment are listed in the video.

  2. I guess I'm torn. I've read the reviews on the Huetiful steamer. I believe this is the one you have. I've read good and bad, of course, and the bad seem to outweight the good. I've thought about getting the LCL steamer. I have extremely short hair, I guess I'm seeking your experience at different lengths. Did you experiment with the steamer when your hair was TWA phase? I have 3 inches of hair on top in some places, and less than an inch on the sides and in the back due to my haircut. Any information would help. Thanks.

    1. Hey Mspurl3! I got this steamer 2 years ago, shortly after my big chop when I only had 4 - 5 inches of TWA hair on my head :) I mainly chose this steamer because of its size....it is small and compact. I don't have a large place, so I needed something that didn't take up much space and was easy to store away when I wasn't using it (I didn't have space for the self-standing steamers like the LCL so I opted for a table-top one). Another selling point for me (at the time) was that this steamer didn't require the use of distilled water - which many hair steamers do. I could just pour any water in and I'm good to go. Overall, I haven't had any issues with the huetiful and I've seen benefits of steaming at all lengths. As my hair gets longer, the only thing I wish was different about this steamer is that the hood could be a bit bigger/deeper like the self-standing or commercial-sized hair steamers. But I guess, then, it would be bigger in size - which would make storage more of a challenge for me. Its all a series of trade-offs I guess :) Get whatever steamer you feel is best for you...because at the end of the day, steam is steam! And your hair will thank you for the steam regardless of the type of steamer! Hope this helps :)

  3. Thank you!!! This was very informative, I purchased the LCL steamer. And I'm still going to use distilled water :-) just to be careful. It's an investment and I want to be as good to it as I can. Another deciding point for me was a coworker that came in with her natural hair straightened and had received a steam treatment and a ceramic infusion style. Her hair was so gorgeous!
