We receive a lot of questions about how the Q-Redew works and how it will effect the hair. One question that is frequently asked is if the Q-Redew will damage hair. Thankfully, the answer is no. Using steam as a treatment for your hair will actually improve your hair’s health!
The Q-Redew’s warm mist application is 100% natural, since we recommend only using distilled water in the appliance. Since the only thing being applied is water* in the form of steam, it is completely free of chemicals that can build up on hair and contribute to unwanted limpness, or can dry out and damage the hair’s cuticle.
Unlike other heat-oriented styling tools that apply intense heat and pressure (e.g. flattening irons, curling irons, etc.), the Q-Redew’s warm mist is friendly to the long-term health of your hair by adding moisture. The Q-Redew will actually start decreasing some of the damage caused by heat styling routines many women put their hair through.
*It is important to note that we discourage adding any scents or oils to the water in your Q-Redew’s reservoir. This will clog the Q-Redew and potentially shorten the lifespan of the device. Anything other than water will cause irreparable damage to the inner workings of the Q-Redew.
