Hooded Dryer vs. Steamer - Which Do You Prefer?Tuesday, May 06, 2014
While on Hairlista.com, this topic was brought up. A member was uncertain as to whether or not she should invest in a hooded dryer or steamer. The concept of "dry" heat vs. "moist" heat, came to mind. Dry heat comes from hooded dryers and moist heat comes from hair steamers. Dry heat is great for deep conditioning treatments as the hair gets really hot (under the conditioning cap) allowing the conditioner to penetrate the hair shaft. However, some say it can dehydrate the hair. Moist heat (means there is more moisture in the air) from hair steamers draw moisture into the hair from the steam vapours which aid in hydrating the hair and increasing conditioner penetration. I'm curious to know which tool provides the best conditioning experience for your hair.
