How To Steam Your Hair

Hair steaming is the perfect way to put a stop to hair breakage and split ends. It leaves your weak and brittle hair feeling all strong and volumized. Steaming your hair regularly helps in locking moisture in and opening up your hair pores to encourage healthy hair growth. It also increases blood flow around the scalp to enable even spread and regulation of natural hair oils around the hair. To get that soft but strong shiny hair you’ve always wanted, steam your hair the proper way and regularly too. You can do this in a saloon or follow our homemade steps written below.


  •  A shower cap or steaming cap.
  • 2 Towels.
  • Rubber gloves.
  • A small bowl.
  • Wide-tooth comb.
  • Shampoo.
  • Hair conditioner.
  • Honey.
  • Olive oil.
  • Castor oil.
  • Hair mayonnaise or normal edible mayonnaise.
  • Shea butter.
  • Hair lotion.
  • Water.


– Wet your hair thoroughly with some water.
– Put on your rubber gloves.
– Mix some honey, mayonnaise, melted shea butter, olive oil, castor oil and hair conditioner in a bowl.
– Divide your hair into four portions and add the mixture to each.
– Massage your hair very well.
– Wrap a slightly wet towel around your head, making sure you cover every part of your hair.
– Wear a steaming cap on the towel.
– Tie another towel tightly on the steaming cap. This is to induce heat into the scalp especially when there’s no hooded dryer available.
– Leave for about 2 – 3 hours.
– Remove the towels and the steaming cap.
– Comb out your hair with a wide tooth comb.
– Wash off thoroughly with warm water and a non-sulphuric shampoo.
– Dry your hair. Once your hair is dried, it feels stronger and fuller.
– Moisturize with a suitable hair lotion.

Note that you can use egg whites in cases where mayonnaise isn’t available. Be sure to moisturize your hair after this procedure because your hair may become extremely dry. Hair steaming can be done as often as once a week to twice in a month. It is necessary to do this regularly to avoid scary hair breakages and weak ends. It may get messy but trust me, your hair would feel everything but messy afterwards. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, and we get a commission on purchases made through our links.
