This week, Q-Redew celebrates the beginning. The beginning of Q-Redew handheld steam.
It was a typical day in February in Wisconsin i.e. cold and dry. So of course, my hair was flat, lifeless and dry. I'd come to expect and dread this each winter. Caught up in my blahs, "it" came to me. I just knew if I could safely and conveniently apply steam to my hair, all my troubles would be solved. My hair would bounce back to its best; hydrated and full of life. Aha! My eureka moment had just hit me!
Months passed and I kept returning to that thought of hair steaming. Stand over a boiling pot of water? Too inconvenient. Point a steam iron at my head? No way, too many spurts of scalding water. Step into a steam shower? Nope, gotta take my clothes off! I started to search the internet. I found hooded hair steamers, but not steamers that would offer the convenience and versatility of handheld steam. I wanted to style, reshape, soften dry hair. I wanted a short cut to refreshed curls. I wanted no more wet head in winter! I wanted to quickly use steam to rework second day hair. I wanted to refresh flat locks in minutes. Handheld steam was the answer.
Coming up empty-handed I decided to put together my own handheld hair steamer prototype, affectionately called the "hairmidifier" in my household. You laugh, and it was ugly, BUT it worked! I shared my crazy little idea with curly friends and family. They liked it.
The process began. The "hairmidifier" transformed into the Q-Redew.
BUT it has not just been my eureka moment that has made the Q-Redew a success. It was the eureka moment of thousands of Q-Redew users who armed with handheld steam realized they can detangle in a fraction of the time, stretch the hair, deep condition, soften hair to safely manipulate, provide a steam blow out. The functionality expanded as women experimented and shared THEIR Q-Redew eureka moment. Fortunately sharing is what we do in the natural curly girl community.
