Give your hair a facial.

The age-old process of hair steaming is becoming more popular these days. Back in the 90’s I remember going to the salon with my grandma on Friday afternoons to wait with her while she got her hair steamed and styled.

So what exactly is hair steaming? It is a moist heat treatment that opens up the pores on your scalp allowing for better cleansing and removal of impurities and allows hydrating and softening products to penetrate your hair and scalp better.

According to award-winning afro hairstylist Charlotte Mensah, “Steaming is one of the best things you can do to pamper your hair, as the heat aids in hydrating dry hair leaving your parched hair happy.”

Hair steaming also repairs dry, damaged hair, stimulates hair growth and leaves your hair feeling nourished and soft. So how do you go about steaming your hair? Begin by washing and conditioning your hair first.

Next, you need to apply a hair treatment, preferably one with healthy and moisturising essential oils like Argan or Coconut oil. You only need to steam your hair once a month and it is recommended that 10-20 minutes should be enough time under the steamer.
