2014 Let's Steam in the Moisture


Moisture, Retention, Reduced Breakage, Manageable New Growth, Easier Detangling, Shiny Soft Hair

Come and steam with me.

The New Year will be here and gone before you know it. Don’t let it go by without realizing the many benefits of steaming your hair. I am ready to steam my way through the New Year. Will you join me?

To join please thank the OP and post the answers to the following:

1. How often you will steam?
2. What method are you using to steam?
3. What products will you steam with?


The only rule is to try to check in at least once weekly and share your progress with us. Progress pictures are encouraged but not required.

The benefits of steaming include:
1. Moisture, Moisture, Moisture!!
2. Increased Shine
3. Increased manageability of new growth
4. Softer hair
5. Less hair breakage
6. Decrease in dandruff caused by dry scalp
7. Easier detangling

I have tried to include everyone who participated in the 2013 challenge. Please forgive me if I left anyone off:

I'd like to join! I recently bought a steamer based off of everyone's reviews and I loooove it.

1. How often you will steam? Once every four days
2. What method are you using to steam? LCL stand up steamer
3. What products will you steam with? Deep conditioners with my oil mix on top.

I'm under the steamer right now with SSI Moisture Riche on 3/4 of my head and Hairveda Sitrinillah on the other 1/4. I looooovvveeeee the SSI but I think I use too much when I DC on dry hair which is my main form of application. I will repurchase to use only after I shampoo.

This was my first time using Hairveda. It's very thick! It seems super moisturizing but was a little lacking in the detangling department. I need to figure out how to use it because I have 2 containers and was hoping to make this my main deep conditioner.

I think both conditioners would be awesome heavy leave ins for a wash and go.

Thanks Rozlewis for starting this challenge! I am still steaming regularly so I will be in again! :grin:

How often you will steam? I steam once a week, very rarely I will do it twice.

What method are you using to steam? I use my Huetiful hair steamer.

What products will you steam with? Depends, I rotate DC's. I currently have Aussie Moist 3 min that I mix with coconut oil and sometimes I just use Mane n Tail. I am planning on adding Carol's Daughter monoi repair mask to my rotation soon as well.

Wow, thanks! My hair was lookin' a hot mess when those pics were taken! :lol: I have it cornrowed under a wig for about 3 weeks but so I just took one side braid down to do a quick length check so its was a frizzy mess. But thanks for the compliment. You made my day! :yep:
