Steam Treatments + Natural Hair = Perfect Match 

Steam treatments can do wonders for your hair! They are super simple to do, inexpensive, and can be done right in your own home. Steam treatments will not only enhance your natural curl pattern, but also help your hair retain moisture and reduce breakage and shedding. It can also put life back into your styles, making them last longer.

To do an at-home steam treatment:

  • Start with clean, detangled hair and apply a deep conditioner, such as our Vanilla Deep Treatment. You can also opt to use hot oil, such as olive, coconut, or sweet almond. During the steam treatment, your hair will absorb the moisture and will result in vibrant shine.
  • Cover your head with a plastic shower cap and then wrap it with a hot, damp towel.
  • Sit back and relax, letting the steam work its magic for 25-30 minutes. If your towel starts to cool down, simply re-heat it and wrap your head again.
  • Finally, rinse with the coolest water you can tolerate. The cool water helps to seal up the cuticle and lock in all of that wonderful moisture.

Once you try steaming, we bet you will fall in love with it and it will be part of your weekly regimen!
