Hair typing can be intimidating. With so many products on the market that are listed for certain hair types and textures, it feels like deciphering how to label your hair is an inevitable step in your natural hair journey.
Let’s say that you have just received your Q-Redew. Excited to see how it works on your hair, you quickly take it out of the package, fill the reservoir with tap water, plug in the appliance and wait for it to heat so that you can steam your curls to perfection. Your first experience is glorious! However, after a few weeks, the steam appears to trail off and it seems like your trusty Q-Redew has failed you… What went wrong?
The answer is that it’s all in the water. Most of us do not think twice about...

A new year means new hair trends and we’re looking forward to some of the fun accessories and hairstyles that will be in style! The best part: most of 2015’s runways styles are perfect for naturally curly hair. Here are just a few of the things we’re excited to try.
I commonly hear, "I have curly hair too, but I could never wear it curly because it's too frizzy".
Well guess what? Yes you can! And what's more, the frizz is your curly hair sending out an SOS. It needs moisture- it's suffocating and drying out! Every head of frizz can be turned into a crown of gorgeous curls, waves or kinks. Really!
Typically the cycle of frizz starts with products we use. Products are often loaded with silicones that initially give us very positive results - smooth, good shine, manageable. These products often...
Many curlies covet the often elusive second day hair, actually third and forth day would be the icing. Prior to the Q-Redew I struggled with this very issue. I wanted that next day hair that many curlies referred to, but nope. It was out of my reach. My second day curls looked bent, flat, misshaped- it looked like I slept on it all night! I was subjected to the daily wet down. The worst part about the wet down was that I spent half of my day with wet hair, followed by the gel cast, and it wasn't until 5 pm...
You may think that it's too good to be true, but you can go from a dry, crunchy, old hairstyle to a perfect twistout without rewetting your hair and starting over.The Q-Redew hand held hair steamer is the secret to this shortcut.
Pre-poo? A pre-poo routine is used to prepare the hair before cleansing. Typically a conditioning treatment is applied to the hair and left to sit from twenty minutes to all night prior to shampooing. The purpose is to prepare the hair for the manipulation required while washing. Some women find that the pre-poo routine adds the moisture that their hair craves. Reporting a softer more moisturized end result.
One common complaint that we hear is "I can not get my low porosity hair to absorb any moisture. Product just sits on the surface" That is where the Q-Redew...
The Q-Redew handheld steamer is emerging as quite the little detangler in the natural hair community. Thorough, gentle detangling is necessary to retain length and manage curly and highly textured hair. There are several common methods for removing tangles. It is often trial and error that leads to a preferred routine. One must decide wet, dry, fingers, wide tooth comb, Ouidad Double Detangler, Tangle Teezer, Denman brush... choices!
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!
