Q-Redew and Oil-based Products
Hair Products and Steam, do they play well together?
The answer is yes, if you know the right equation.
Creating healthy, manageable and stylish hair is our "Q-Goal" here at Q-Redew. We want to enhance your Q-Redew experience as you use our handheld steamer to rejuvenate, hydrate, reshape, boost volume, detangle and stretch your beautiful curls.
So here are some FAQs that will help you achieve the results you desire.
The reality... "The benefits of the Q-Redew are impacted by your hair regimen."
The Q-Redew uses steam to make your hair healthy and hydrated, but it first needs to get to your hair to make this happen. If your hair is masked with oils and products, it is difficult for the steam to get to the hair and cuticle. If products have saturated or outlined your hair, the Q-Redew and its natural steam cannot get to the cuticle or your hair and work its magic. Does that mean that you can't use hair products? Absolutely not! They just need to be used at the right time.
BEFORE or AFTER, let's give you the facts....
Adding products such as butters, oils, and conditioners to your hair BEFORE you use the Q-Redew prevents steam from penetrating the cuticle. You want steam to be at the root, not anything else.
We recommend the following steps to enhance your regime:
- Add water to reservoir (distilled water only)
- Let it warm up until ready
- Massage the Q-Redew into your hair
- AFTER you have Q-Redew"ed", add oils/leave-in conditioners/other hair products to hair as desired.
Now go steam, hydrate, product accentuate and recognize the Beautiful You.
