BENEFITS OF USING THE HAIR STEAM IRON
- 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.
-Steam straighteners work in a similar fashion to regular straighteners; you place dry hair in between two plates which are covered in ceramic bristles and gently pull the tool through your hair. The only difference is the plates have distinct bristles that act like a brush, rather than the flat plates on your regular straighteners.
- However, rather than heating up ceramic, tourmaline or titanium plates, steam straighteners use steam technology derived from the water in the chamber to deliver heat (which is safer for hair).
- You need to top the chamber up with water every 15 to 20 minutes (unlike traditional straighteners).
- It takes longer to straighten a full head of hair as you can only place a small amount of hair in between its plates at a time. Traditional hair straighteners are faster and can cope with more hair with each pass, especially if you buy wide-plate straighteners.
-The results are similar to a high-quality, traditional hair straightener and there are no “hot spots” on the plates, which I find often happens on traditional straighteners when parts of the ceramic plates start to wear away.
