What is steaming?
Steaming natural hair is a method of deep conditioning that improves the health of your hair and scalp, creates more defined curls, detangles, and restores balance. All these benefits prevent your hair from becoming a ball of frizz at the thought of moisture in the air. To prepare your hair for steaming as a pre-poo, massage your favorite oil(s) into your scalp and sit under the steamer for 20 - 30 minutes.
Wash day is a big deal when you have natural hair. I find myself mentally preparing days before I even get started. The biggest question for me is "when will I have the time and the energy to detangled, shampoo, condition, detangle again and style my natural hair at the same time. Well, rarely do they all happen at once. In my natural hair regimen, each event has it's own special day.
