Steam hair without a steamer

towelsDiscover this easy technique of steaming your hair and infusing much needed moisture with a hooded or bonnet dryer 

So you’ve started to really take care of your hair and it’s thriving. You’ve bought all the things you think are necessary to keep your locks looking at their best. You certainly don’t want to become a product junkie buying every hair tool you can find only to use it once then realize that it’s not absolutely necessary.

A steamer is certainly not necessary if you already own a hooded or bonnet dryer.  The idea of the steamer is to infuse moisture into the hair with the aid of heat. The steam method is especially ideal if your hair is in need of extra moisture or you have a treatment in your hair that requires a steamer e.g. The Coconut And Lime Treatment.

Great results can be achieved just as easily with a couple of handy household items and if you already own a hooded dryer, a steam treatment is well within your reach without breaking the bank!  What you will need:

2 face cloths

A bowl full of hot water (not boiling)

2 plastic caps or plastic bags

hooded/bonnet dryer

Prepare your hair first by washing and applying the conditioner or hair treatment. Soak both face cloths in the hot water. Wring some of the water out of the first face cloth. The cloth should be wet but not soaking. Place the cloth over your hair and immediately cover with one of the plastic caps/plastic bags. Wring the second face cloth and apply this over the plastic bag already on your head and immediately apply the plastic bag/cap. Ensure that the last plastic bag is tied securely around the hairline to prevent water dripping down your neck. Both bags should be spacious enough to allow the steam to form.

For the best results, sit under the hooded dryer for up to 1 hour to allow for maximum moisture penetration. While nothing will beat the super intense moisturization of an actual steamer, this method outlined above is a reasonable alternative.

      Never heard of the product I’m afraid but to be honest products, regardless of what they have in them. are secondary to regimen.
