That brings me to this post. My hair was feeling a bit low on hydration at the roots with being 10 weeks post. However, I am not in the mood to wash and wrestle with this new growth that is working my nerves. Remember this post about >>>tangles // not relaxer stretching<<<? Therefore, I decided to go for an oldie but goodie – dry hair steaming.
What is dry hair steaming? Glad you asked…..
My definition of dry hair steaming is the process of sitting under the steamer on unwashed hair for a quick boost of hydration. Ok, ok, ok, so to be fair, I don’t do this on completely dry hair but dry hair is my start point.
I spritz my hair with something hydrating. For this dry steaming session, I spritzed with distilled water, layered on my loose leaf tea concoction and then topped all of it off with some deliciously moisturizing Aubrey Organics White Camellia. I sat under the steamer for 30 minutes. After allowing my hair to cool, I sealed with avocado oil and let my hair air dry. Note: I use Aubrey Organics as a catch-all product: cowash, deep conditioner and leave-in. Therefore, I do not rinse out the White Camellia.
My hair felt hydrated as it normally does. The hydration doesn’t replace or compare to a full regi but it’s a good alternative to hold you over.
