Hair steaming is beneficial as the heat aids in hydrating dry hair leaving your parched tresses happy. The moist heat also encourages blood flow to circulate, promoting hair growth too! The steam lifts the hair cuticle allowing your treatments to penetrate deeply into the hair shaft helping to heal damaged hair.
If you are looking for loads of definition, the increase in moisture retention will also help to reshape and boost your curls. It will not change your hair texture (if done for the correct amount of time- no more than thirty minutes) but it will make your hair look different/better.
Steaming your hair helps create stronger strands which are more “elastic” The elasticity of your hair will help you keep an eye on the health of your hair. What this means is do your curls snap back to their original state after they are stretched. Steaming provides the moisture needed to keep your in a strong elastic state. This is key for those who are struggling in their transition (as we all do) because it may be difficult to calculate your elasticity when the line of demarcation is weak. Building strength in your hair will help in styling and length retention as well.
