Key Benefits Of Scalp Steaming Therapy

  2. Balancing the Scalp: Along with purifying the scalp of the toxins within, steam therapy helps increase the collagen production and blood flow of the scalp. The collagen level and increased blood flow, resulting in a healthy naturally shiny scalp–not the kind of shine caused by synthetic styling products.
  3. Improves Hair Elasticity: The elasticity of curly hair strands is its ability to stretch without snapping and causing further breakage and damage to the strands. Steam treatments allow each strand of hair to absorb so much moisture that the curls will be able to bend and stretch more than before and have mmore bounce and definition naturally.
  4. Lifts Dead Skin Cells: An unhealthy scalp means unhealthy hair. Dead skins love to stick together with trapped scalp oils and often cause ithcing and flaking.

Like every living organism, Malassezia thrives and multiplies when it is fed, and one of its favourite foods is the saturated fatty acids found in your scalp sebum.
