Hair steaming is the process of using the warmth of water to open the pores of your scalp and hair follicles allowing in moisture. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, here are three benefits of hair steaming natural hair.

Types of Hair Steamers for Natural Hair

There are various types of steamers that are available for natural hair. You can use a tabletop steamer like the Huetiful steamer or a handheld steamer like the Q-Redew.

What Are the Benefits of Steaming Natural Hair?

Hair Steaming Promotes Hair Growth

Hair goals anyone? Steaming your natural hair increases the blood flow and opens pores. The hair steaming process also helps clear toxins due to product buildup and increases the flow of the natural oils in your hair, essentially promoting hair growth.

Steaming Natural Hair Improves Elasticity

Steaming your natural hair can also help with improving your hair’s elasticity. In other words, when your hair is stretched, it is able to “snap back”. This is especially helpful for transitioners since the line of demarcation is the weakest point of the hair and can break easily.

Steaming Your Natural Hair Increases Porosity

If you have dry or low porosity hair, hair steaming can help with moisture retention. When the cuticles are open, it helps hair products like deep conditioners and other treatments penetrate the hair strands.
