WON BY ANGEL AYERS
I have been involved in hair care for just under 5 years now and in that time I have seen my mother and 3 sisters all transition to natural hair. You would imagine that in that time they have all managed to retain the same length as I have and are all rocking waist length hair? Not so unfortunately.
They have all grown their hair but have remained stuck between shoulder and arm pit length. Clearly genes have very little to do with length retention after all; but you already knew that!
Many of us imagine that just going natural will guarantee us length but what a lot of ladies fail to take into account is to understand the importance of using heat when you deep condition. Whether you are relaxed or natural, the story of deep conditioning* with heat remains the same.
There will be a future article that goes into more detail about why heat is so vital but suffice to say, if you have coarse hair that you wish to transform into soft fluffiness, using heat during deep conditioning* sessions should become your number one priority.
Steam of course does this better because it not only helps expand the cuticle but the moist heat helps infuse intense hydration right in your hair shaft where it’s needed. The difference that a steamer will make to your hair regimen will be so obvious you will wonder why you hadn’t made the investment earlier!
The Secura S-192 Hair and facial steamer boasts the following features:
Secura hair and facial steamer* can moisturize and hydrate your hair, prevents breakage and splits. Improves absorption of conditioners and other treatments. The 1-5 um ultra-fine mist generated by ultrasonic atomizer can be easily absorbed more quickly.
Instantly convert to a tabletop facial steamer. The ultra-fine mist opens and unclogs your pores allows you to remove dirt, oil and grime from your skin. The facial spray rod attachment is included.
Built-in ozone generator controls release of negatively charged oxygen which helps reduce itchiness and prevent dandruff. Besides skin care, the steamer can also be used for interior humidifying in a powerful and efficient way.

A common complaint I hear with many steamers is that they don’t seem to reach the hair on the back of your head. In my experience I have found that clipping my hair up towards the top of my head before going under the steamer means that all your ends get the attention they deserve.
