The Benefits of Steaming Your Natural Hair
Steaming the hair creates a humid environment, optimal for absorption of moisture, promoting growth, defining curls and adding volume.
So what are the benefits of using steam? Natural elements such as sun, wind, heat, etc. tend to dry out natural tresses. Steaming allows you to add moisture to your hair promoting
moisture, length and growth. Think of your hair like a plant. When a plant does not receive any moisture and is dry it will become dull, brittle, break and eventually die because the roots are not receiving any moisture. The same concept should be applied to your hair.
Steaming helps to gently lift the cuticle for better penetration of ingredients. Conditioners and products are able to penetrate the hair more effectively.
Adding steam to your hair adds moisture. Whenever your hair has the proper moisture balance, you ward off dryness, brittleness, and breakage.
Steaming also enhances your natural curl pattern and promotes clumping without sacrificing volume. It also helps to use less heat when straightening hair because the steam makes it easier to flat iron the hair.
Using steam increases hair growth and diminishes the occurrence of dandruff because of the added moisture.
