Ah, the life of a curly girl. You spend hours washing, deep conditioning* and detangling. You then take ages to create a gorgeous wash and go that looks on point on day one but second day hair? Not so much.
Twist outs and braid outs are easy enough to get second day hair out of by using the pineapple method. Wash and go’s are a bit trickier, particularly for 4a hair which has fragile curls that get crushed very easily while you sleep.
Recently I came across the Q-Redew. The Q-Redew is the first hand held hair steamer*, and it has captured the interest of the natural hair community in a big way.
So what is all the excitement is about? The Q-Redew promises to reshape, boost volume, and restore moisture in minutes. This may be something your limp, dry hair needs this winter!
So how does it work? The Q-Redew is super easy to use. Just fill the little reservoir with water (and only water), and allow it to heat for about 20 seconds. Pull the trigger and the Q-Redew* emits warm steam as a mist to warm and soften the hair.
Get second day hair
You can use the mist to reshape and restyle. Awaken a day old wash and go or a TWA. A few minutes of steam and your hair will be full of volume and moisture. It’s also worth a mention that when you use the Q-Redew on your hair and it won’t leave it wet which is a very good thing on a cold morning!
Use it to moisturize and seal
The Q-Redew* also restores moisture, not instead of your deep conditioning* treatments, but as a compliment to your routine between DC treatments. By applying the Q-Redew steam for just a few minutes (it would not be practical to hold for much longer) followed by a sealant, the hair really does feel softer, less brittle.
Pretty impressive for a quick “mini steam”!
Great for stretching relaxers
