    Hi Ladies,

    Happy New Year!! Time to reflect and reset on our hair goals. New beginnings are always good because we get the opportunity to improve on what we did in the previous year. I have benefited from the many advantages of steaming. If you want healthy, shiny, moisturized hair then steaming might be for you. The great thing about steaming is you can customize the frequency based on your needs. For example, I started steaming weekly and I was dedicated to my weekly treatments. My hair thrived from these treatments now I only do it once a month.

    To join please post...

    1. How often you will steam?
    2. What method are you using to steam?
    3. What products will you steam with?
    4. Post a starting picture (optional)

    Please check in periodically and let us know what kind of progress you are making as you steam into 2020.

    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

    Happy New Year and Happy Steaming!

    Thanks,
    Roz

    Thinking of purchasing this... how do you like the steamer? How is the standing steamer vs a table top one (if you’ve used the table top) ? How big is the steamer hood/head that attaches to the stand?

    @Mapleoats
    It's very nice.:love: My 2nd one since I started by HHJ.

    Have not used the table top.

    The Hood is a decent size. It works great.

    It does take up some space.

    hi steamers! after so many years of resisting, I decided I want to start steaming my hair at home. I decided that after I saw the results on my hair after a steam treatment at the salon today.
    I want to join this challenge! But does anyone have any recommendations on a steamer that I can purchase?

    Are you ladies relaxed or natural? Does steaming work well on relaxed hair?

    Question for steamers: Im hearing that steaming with heavy butter based conditioners isnt doing much and somewhat allows moisture to be blocked from getting into the hair shaft. Water based conditioners seem to be recommended.

    Thoughts on this?

    @atlien11
    IMO:
    I've noticed some have better absorption than others (of both types Cream vs Butter).

    IMO: Even the Butter Based ones has no power over the Steam:love:
