Secura S-192 Hair and Facial Steamer Giveaway (CLOSED)

BHI Giveaways I have been involved in hair care for just under 5 years now and in that time I have seen my mother and 3 sisters all transition to natural hair. You would imagine that in that time they have all managed to retain the same length as I have and are all rocking waist length hair? Not so unfortunately.

They have all grown their hair but have remained stuck between shoulder and arm pit length. Clearly genes have very little to do with length retention after all; but you already knew that!

Many of us imagine that just going natural will guarantee us length but what a lot of ladies fail to take into account is to understand the importance of using heat when you deep condition. Whether you are relaxed or natural, the story of deep conditioning with heat remains the same.

There will be a future article that goes into more detail about why heat is so vital but suffice to say, if you have coarse hair that you wish to transform into soft fluffiness, using heat during deep conditioning sessions should become your number one priority.

Steam of course does this better because it not only helps expand the cuticle but the moist heat helps infuse intense hydration right in your hair shaft where it’s needed. The difference that a steamer will make to your hair regimen will be so obvious you will wonder why you hadn’t made the investment earlier!

The Secura S-192 Hair and facial steamer boasts the following features:

Secura hair and facial steamer can moisturize and hydrate your hair, prevents breakage and splits. Improves absorption of conditioners and other treatments. The 1-5 um ultra-fine mist generated by ultrasonic atomizer can be easily absorbed more quickly.

Instantly convert to a tabletop facial steamer. The ultra-fine mist opens and unclogs your pores allows you to remove dirt, oil and grime from your skin. The facial spray rod attachment is included.

Built-in ozone generator controls release of negatively charged oxygen which helps reduce itchiness and prevent dandruff. Besides skin care, the steamer can also be used for interior humidifying in a powerful and efficient way.

  • The 1-5 UM ultra-fine mist generated by ultrasonic atomizer can be easily absorbed more quickly
  • Moisturize and hydrate your hair prevents breakage and splits
  • Instantly convert to a tabletop facial steamer
  • Built-in ozone generator
  • Can also be used as an in-room humidifier


A common complaint I hear with many steamers is that they don’t seem to reach the hair on the back of your head. In my experience I have found that clipping my hair up towards the top of my head before going under the steamer means that all your ends get the attention they deserve.

About Alma

Hi! I'm Alma Ruddock, a full time blogger. I stumbled on a hair care forum in 2008 frustrated with my breaking relaxed hair and the information that I found there changed the fate of my hair forever!. I started as a way to help both myself and other women of color achieve their dreams of long healthy hair. I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to bring new information about hair on both this website and my personal blog.

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?

    I believe so. Natural Hair should be accepted anywhere, its not like we can just magically straighten our roots permanently. Most Caucasian are born with theirs. We have to embrace what we have. Natural black hair is beautiful. We should be able to wear it in a office type work place or anywhere at that matter. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Huge,Small, or Puffy Afro. It also doesn’t matter if its dreads or anything else. :)

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?
    I believe Natural hair in its natural state definitely can be worn successfully. I see it already in most government buildings and I see it is becoming a very popular topic IN the workplace as well as outside the workplace. I have people come to me and tell me how much they wish their hair would do like mines and that is all they are waiting on, I think if more people would wear their natural hair in its natural state, it would not be hard to accept it, because they would HAVE to accept it. Honestly, I love my Natural hair in its natural state, in a twisted defined state, and that is the only acceptance which is my concern.

    Yes. Natural hair is becoming a bigger trend every single day and is being accepted by more and more people each day. A person’s hair isn’t related to how well they do at work.

  4. 4

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace? Yes. I myself rock and will continue to rock natural hair styles. Nowadays, I believe more workplace environments are more acceptable to natural hair styles just as they are with tattoos in the workplace.

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?

    Its all in the presentation. My workplace at the moment is Arkansas State University-Jonesboro, which has African Americans as the minority. If you present yourself in a professional manner, it should not matter if your relaxed, natural, or have weave! In Matthew 5:16 it says “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.”

  6. 6

    Yes I think that natural hair can be worn in the work place, it has became a growing trend. When I started to wear my hair natural I felt a little out of place an actually had second thoughts about it, but now I see more and more people wearing theirs now, I even convinced my sister and mother to go natural.

  7. 7

    Of course natural hair can be worn at the workplace!just like any other hair if it is properly groomed it is acceptable!!

    Do you think natural hair in its natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?

    Yes I think it can; just like any other hairstyle, be it chemically altered, braids, weaves, etc, it needs to have a neat appearance, which is perfectly achievable no matter what the hair’s texture.

  9. 9

    i totally believe that hair in its’ natural state at work is professional, appropriate and can be successfully worn at work, but this is dependent on the person wearing the hair. confidence exudes a belief in how a person feels about themselves and everything they bring. i know that I ROCK, therefore, my hair and my clothing ROCK! that is the success (and comfort) in wearing natural hair.

  10. 10

    Definitely. I wore my hair natural for quite some time. It was in a ponytail.

    ‘Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?

    yes it can with style no one should be afraid of their natural hair. As for me i’m relaxed i sometime wear its natural but mostly relaxed. No workplace should discriminate anyone because of their hair. its nothing to be be ashamed of at all.

  12. 12

    Yes, I believe natural hair can be worn in the work place. It is just a matter of wearing professional styles.

  13. 13

    Natural hair can definitely be worn in its natural state in the workplace, and I fully intend to be rocking a TWA in my office come August.

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?

    Yes, I have been natural for over 10 years and I work in a professional government arena. I have received promotions with no problem. I wear my hair in many different natural styles. When my hair was shorter, I did the afro with accessories. As my hair grew, I have learned new styles with twists and twist-outs, done in a precise way. I may wear my bun, twists, updos, curly fro, etc…I believe there is a resistance from some who do not understand our hair, but if you, the person, can rise beyond worrying about what they think, and prove your worth through skills and character, then your hair is not an issue anymore. You may teach them something.

  15. 15

    Definitely. Hair isn’t something that equals “one size fits all”. As long as there isn’t a safety risk or health issue related to how a person wears her hair, I don’t see a problem. Bottom line: Conformity for the sake of conformity seems to be on the way out.

    Natural hair can definitely be worn in the workplace. As with any hairstyle, grooming and neatness is the key.

  17. 17

    natural hair can definitely be worn in the work place! it’s just that society needs to change it’s idea of “acceptable” hair.

  18. 18

    Yes, natural hair in its natural state can be worn very successfully in the work place. TWA’s as well as protective styles can look very professional and are being accepted more & more.

      Yes, our natural tresses can be worn successfully in the work place. I am a teacher and there are many of us who rock our hair’s natural beauty daily. What’s even better is to see the students rocking it too.

    Curls and Mo says:

    Yes! As long as it’s neat it can be. It can be rolled and tucked or pulled up or back.

    “Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?’

    I sure do. I wear mine successfully in the workplace everyday. I work in healthcare and prefer to wear it bunned on most days (even while in twist). I don’t go for shock value in the work place- I wear it big mostly on weekends. While in TWA stage a simple head band would suffice. I get multiple compliments from co-workers about my hair. I think each individual should think long and hard about what style works best in their work environment. As employees whe also have to keep in mind the employee handbook rules.
    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win the steamer. I recently found your blog and glad I did! It is very informative. Keep up the good work.
