What Is Hair Steaming?

Hair steaming is an essential hair care treatment that allows your tresses to absorb the goodness of essential oils and conditioner better. The procedure of hair steaming involves exposing your hair to warm steam that helps raise your cuticle layer (the outermost protective layer made up of overlapping cells) [1] and open the hair shaft. This in turn, allows for better hydration and penetration of topical hair products.

Better Nutrition Absorption

Your hair is made up of three layers. The outermost layer is the cuticle, and has the appearance of fish scales. It is made up of cells that overlap each other and protect the inner layers from environmental damage. It also seals in essential moisture that keeps your hair healthy. During hair steaming, warmth and moisture swells up the hair shaft and slightly raises the cuticle layer. This allows haircare products to penetrate deep into your hair strands giving them a boost of health.

Removes Dead Skin Cells

Steaming hair keeps your scalp clean and healthy. The warm steam helps loosen dirt, grime and dead skin cells on the scalp. So shampooing after hair steaming enhances the cleansing process. A mild, natural shampoo is best for hair that has been steamed. Steaming is also known to control dandruff by preventing dry scalp and removing dead skin cells.

Improves Blood Circulation

Your hair derives its nutrition and oxygen from blood vessels present at the base of the hair follicle. The warmth from the steam causes vasodilation and increases blood flow to the hair roots. This enhances nutrition supply, prevents premature greying, promotes hair growth and keeps your hair follicles from drying.

Promotes Secretion Of Natural Oils

Sebaceous glands that open into the hair follicle, produce sebum and keep your hair nourished. This natural oil forms a protective layer over your hair shaft protecting it from environmental and heat damages. The warm humid environment created by the hair steamer enhances sebum secretion [2] on the scalp which prevents dryness and gives your hair its natural shine.

Who should consider hair steaming?

If you’re dealing with dryness, damage, thinning or hairloss, hair steaming is the way to go. More specifically, people with low porosity hair, color-treated hair or relaxed hair can benefit from adding steam to their hair care regimen because it helps your hair take in as much of your hydrating products as possible.
