Huetiful Hair Steamer

I know, right? A hair post over here at Clumps? Hair talk is usually saved for my hair blog but I’ve had to the opportunity to review the Huetiful hair steamer and wanted to share it with the Clumps fam. After all, with the cooler weather hitting us, who couldn’t use some added moisture to the ole’ crown, eh?

Call me loca but I’ve never heard of a hair steamer until I saw natural hair bloggers posting about Huetiful’s.

Now let’s set this straight, doll babies. I only know what works for my hair type. And my hair type is pretty specific. I am brown girl with loc’d hair. My review will be based on my kind of hair only. Can the Huetiful work on other hair types? I wouldn’t doubt it but I’ve only seen reviews of it by women of color with relaxed and natural hair. I have yet to see any ladies with locs review it. I’m kinda excited to be the first (or one of the few) to do so.

For starters, what’s the point of a hair steamer and why would anyone need to use it?

The Huetiful was designed specifically for curly and wavy hair. Its claims are what drove me to act like a giddy 5-year old in anticipation until it found its way in my house. It claims to reduce dandruff, help open up hair cuticles to allow conditioner to moisturize inner layers of the hair shaft and enhances hair dyeing and pigmentation process. As a sista who suffers from dandruff, could use more moisture in my locs AND colors my hair frequently,  I found myself to be a great candidate for the steamer.

It was actually very easy to put together.

Even for a I’m too lazy to read directions so this better work kinda gal like myself. It only comes with 3 parts (the facial attachment makes 4). What makes Huetiful stand apart from other hair steamers in the ozone feature; which, helps kill the bacteria that can lead to dandruff. Once you press the Ozone flip UP, the steam turns into ozone and does its magic My scalp thanks you, Huetiful.

Pretty cool, uh? I added a few drops of peppermint and rosemary essential oils in my water for a therapeutic effect which made for a pleasant 20 minutes of sitting under the steamer.

Honestly…my scalp has become spoiled and craves the streamer every few weeks. My dandruff doesn’t seem to flare up AS much and my locs feel softer. Which, you know, says a lot since locs are usually hard. With having colored over 5 times, I could use every extra bit of moisture that I can get.

And we won’t even get on the facial attachment.

I mean, although it took me 10 minutes to figure it out (it wasn’t in the directions…boo!) my sinuses and pores absolutely loved it!

Is the Huetiful Hair Steamer a must have for women with locs? It runs for $114 so it’s definitely a luxury buy. One, that I think a lot of us loc’d ladies will find only enhances our at-home hair care regimens. Especially those of us with dandruff. Because it doesn’t show immediate results, I think with prolonged use, it will keep my dandruff at bay. Or at least under control. And although I don’t use creamy conditioners (currently playing around with leave-in homemade ones and Infusium 23), I find that allowing the condish to sink into my locs after a good steam makes all of the difference in terms of super soft locs.

Yeah mon.

I hope Huetiful works diligently with trying to work out international orders. I can just hear a silent hiss from my UK and Canadian readers. Yes loves, you won’t be able to get your hands on the Huetiful. Not yet but they are working on it.

Mop Top Maven gives a dynamic review of how to assemble the steamer. I think it works wonders on the curl/kinky hair girls of the world.

  • I would think this would also help moisturize dry hair since the steam comes from water.

    I have all natural hair that’s curly when wet. My only concern would be frizzy hair when I like to keep it straight. I would probably only use this after a washing.

    What was the purpose for you adding the essential oil for your hair?

      A lot of ladies like to use the steamer while pre-pooing their hair or with conditioner on their hair AFTER shampooing. I’m a loc rocker so my hair is in a constant state of frizz. Haaaa!

      I normally use peppermint and rosemary EOs on my hair so I liked adding them to the steam. Plus, it’s just so aroma-therapeutic.

    I’ve been seeing reveiws of this all around. Hmmm, can you tell me how this differs from spending some time in the shower? I like to put my veggie glygerine spritz on my hair and then get in the shower and let the steam go to work. Would this do the same only on deeper level?
    The price tag is kinda steep for a girl like me.

      The Huetiful goes beyond steaming. The UV light on the device turns steam into ozone. Plus, you’ll save a lot of water by using 1/2 cup of water in your steamer over gallons of water in a shower. It’s definitely an investment but I good one, I think. Especially for us ladies who maintain our hair at the crib.

  • I love my steamer! Even here in Florida, I find that it makes a difference.

    • Brittany

      I think so too!

  • I WANT ONE! this looks like a pretty nifty little contraption

    I’m so late in responding. I luuuuuuuvvvvvv this lil steamer. Since I stopped using the cream crack once again 8 months ago, I found that my hair was getting super frizzy and dry. But this thing right here did wonders for me and my hair. Left it So soft and shiny! Woohoo

    I have to say this steamer is doing what expensive products have not been able to do to my hair by themselves. I am now able to use products off the shelf, even some that are very inexpensive and my hair has never felt or looked better. I have received more compliments in the last month than I have in the last 2 yrs..(…really) and I can’t believe how my hair feels all the way down to the root…I am soooo excited about my hair again! I’ve been mixing it up, sometimes using the more expensive mail order products that I already have and sometimes the cheaper stuff I just picked up at a local beauty supply store, and my hair has just been off the map. The single common denominator is my wonderful Heutiful Steamer!

    I love getting my hair steamed. I started visiting a salon in San Antonio called Mane and Glory, they do not recommend relaxers and use a technique called Ceramic Phusion. I did notice a reduction in the dandruff, my hair stays straighter longer and is much softer than when I first started getting the steam treatment. I would recommend it to anyone!!

    Check out the site:

    The before and after pictures are real, they do amazing work!!


  • great review! I just purchased this with the facial attachment and am sooo excited to use it!

    My hairstylist will steam my locks prior to each shampoo… her assessment of the product is that it helps lift dirt, cleanses so much better than simple shampooing, and I do have a dry scalp, I will not have those issues for a while after using steam.
