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


WON BY ANGEL AYERS
BHI GiveawaysI 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.

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 BlackHairInformation.com 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!!

    MsCurlyKat says:

    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.

  11. 11

    ‘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.

    LaShonda Ford says:

    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.

    • 19

      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.

  19. 20
    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.

    I think it can be worn successfully. Neatness is key–just like any other texture.

  22. 23

    Natural hair is becoming more accepted in the workplace. In fact, other races are really fascinated with our hair because it is more versatile than any other race.

  23. 24

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?
    I wear a roll and tuck or a twist out bantu knot all the time. Non naturals compliment me more than any other co worker.Its all about wearing it professional and classy

    Autumn Ousley says:

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

    I believe that natural hair can be successful worn in the workplace because hair shouldn’t be a problem when working and getting a job especially when it comes to just wearing your hair natural also I already see women wearing their natural in their jobs.

    • 26

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

      It can definitely be worn in the workplace, however, if you are in a role that’s customer-facing, wildly-styled “big” hair may be inappropriate. For example, I am a salesperson who visits clients face-to-face, so I need to look as conservative as possible, so buns and french twists (whether relaxed are natural) suit me best.

  25. 27
    wasinda says:

    Yes it can packed up in a bun or in a nice twist neatly it will look great

    Kimberly J says:

    Ebonee D says:

    Natural hair should be accepted everywhere because it is the hair that naturally grows out of our head! It is silly to think that Black women should be required to find other things to do with their hair while women of other races are free to wear their hair as is. There is no “socially acceptable” hair texture. As long as your hair is neat and not dyed an inappropriate color for the workplace, I see no reason why natural hair can not be worn successfully.

  28. 30

    Yes I do. I think it does depend on the style however. The hair must be kept clean, neat and the presentation depends on the workplace.

  29. 31

    I agree with Arizona. Yes, it can be worn but only certain ways.

    No matter how we feel about being able to wear our hair the way it grows out of our heads, fact is not every style is going to be accepted in the workplace. If your hair naturally grows up and out then guess what? You may have to tone it down at work.

    Fair? Perhaps not. But corporations have images to uphold. If you work for them, you represent them and you have to conform.

    AmazingJai says:

    I do believe natural hair can be worn successfully in the workplace. As long as its clean, neat, and doesn’t get in the way of performing duties then it really isn’t a problem.

  31. 33

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace? I believe it is already being done. Many professional women have been wearing their natural hair for years. The fact more women of color are embracing their natural hair just means other people see it more and get “used” to it. (Hated to use that term.)

  32. 34

    I believe natural can definitely be worn in the workplace. From fierce twist outs, to elegant updos, to beautiful braid outs, classic buns, and the occasional pin roll and tuck, there is so much you can do with natural hair

  33. 35
    Gio early says:

    I don’t doubt natural hair styles can be worn in the workplace. I believe that naturals have been very successful in finding tasteful styles that represent a professional approach to natural hairstyling.

  34. 36
    Vonetta Mudd says:

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

    Yes, I believe natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace. It can be worn anywhere… as long as it’s done neatly. We as black people, can embrace our heritage and our hair, whether it’s kinky, curly, or straight. We can wear our natural hair in the workplace, no matter where we work

  35. 37

    Hair of any texture should be acceptable any where, as long as it clean and well maintain! Cause the skill you present in the working word should be distracted by hair! To accept hair of a natural being, is to accept the person who’s wearing it proudly!

  36. 38
    Sal Lexi says:

    I have heard a lot of good things about this hair steamer. I am excited to enter and have the chance to win. Maybe it will help my transitioning hair to get moisturized. :)

  37. 39
    Jenelle Brown says:

    Yes it can be worn in the workplace naturally as long as it isn’t unkept. Many people have a misconception that the minute you have natural hair, they see it as unkept but that’s crazy. Anyone can have unkept hair and is poorly taken cared of and styled. My aunt works for a major global organization which I will remain nameless and she wore and natural hair and even big chopped a 3rd time and is seen professional by her peers.

  38. 40

    Yes I believe natural hair is excepted and can be worn successfully in the workplace, I wear my hair natural in the workplace.

  39. 41
    Adrienne says:

    I absolutely do think that natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace. It’s not the same as if you were to wear ripped jeans to the office, its your hair. Many curly heads Caucasian or otherwise don’t straighten their hair to assume a more” professional ” look. So why are we to assume that it’s not acceptable. I personally believe that since we as a people haven’t been able to accept ourselves as we are (skin bleaching, minimizing nose jobs, relaxing our hair, etc…) we automatically assume that things won’t be accepted. Your hair preference doesn’t change your competence as an employee !!! So in the infamous words of India Arie ” I am not my hair”

  40. 42
    D'Stinie says:

    I definitely believe that natural hair can be worn in the workplace. I feel that just like for people with straight or wavy hair there are appropriate styles for natural hair that fit your occupation and your personality at the same time.

  41. 43
    Nafisah says:

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

    Definitely so. I love seeing natural hair in and out of the workplace. It shows that you’re comfortable in your own skin and hair type! No one should have to straighten their hair everyday just to be accepted at work.

    Trellington says:

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

    I believe that you can but you need to know what the climate is like at your place of employment. Just like how you determine what is appropriate to wear to work is the same for your hair. I work at a university where the rules are a little relaxed but I make sure that when I leave my house I am put together

  43. 45

    Yes, black hair can be worn successfully in the workplace. I wear my hair in mini-twists and find various protective styles to keep my hair neat. I’m also pretty conservative with my hairstyles, so the simple stuff I do is fine. Every so often I will do an extravagant style, but’s it’s rare.

  44. 46

    Yes I do think it can work and it definitely does for me! Styling options vary with your profession and environment of course, but for me as a Secretary (and only female) working in a collision repair shop filled with white and hispanic dudes I’ve been able to rock my go-to twistout fro every workday with not a single issue! (However for interviews I always put a polished looking headband on it to push it back like a sleeker twistout puff, I think that style addressed the professionalism need while also letting my employer know my afro hair will look somewhat like that everyday since it’s currently too short for buns and ponytails)

  45. 47

    i have been natural for 12 years and i have worked all of thoise years. with my extensions, twists, braid outs and afro puffs. so it is defintely possible to rock natural hair at the work place.

    Sierra Kincaid says:

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace?
    Of course! A person’s natural hair texture is just as much a part of them as their skin color. If they do not have to bleach their skin to be successful, they should not have to change their natural texture.

  47. 49

    Absolutely. It’s unbelievable the amount of acceptance from people NOT colour! They will openly comment / compliment your tresses… but dislike and lack of understanding from our own. My only caveat is observe “hair etiquette”! :)

  48. 50
    Hazel Chimpaka says:

    I most definitely think natural hair can be worn successfully in the workplace, all we have to do is embrace it learn to love it and take very good care of it and with that care and love for it it will inhibit others to love it and see the beauty of natural hair and how beautiful it is. Even if they do not love it they will learn to appreciate natural hair and discover that it is an exceptionally beautiful hair type.

  49. 51
    Princess J says:

    Do you think natural hair in it’s natural state can be worn successfully in the workplace? Absolutely, without a question!!!! Wearing your hair natural is a personal choice & there is nothing wrong with it as long as its clean & well groomed. I can’t imagine that this is a problem. There are so many other things that are more important. Everyone else wears their ethnic hair and I can’t see why we can’t wear ours. Natural African-American hair is beautiful!!!

  50. 52

    Absolutely natural hair can be worn in the workplace. I’ve done it off and on for over 20 years
