Q-Redew Steamer Review

A portable Hair Steamer?  Yaaaasssssssssss! Okay people here's the scoop: I've spoken to most of my naturally curly clients about the benefits of using a steamer on their hair to MOISTURIZE! Read my review of the fabulous portable Q-ReDew.

Q-Redew hair steamer review:

This is a great tool to use at home or in hair salons to put moisture instantly into curly hair.  The most obvious feature is it's a portable hand held device. The water reservoir is on the front and the power button is located underneath the device which must be pushed on and held in while using. 

My first opportunity to use the Q-Redew was at the Natural hair expo in Las Vegas this fall. Natural & Sassy's founder Marita asked me if we would try it at our Curly Revolution booth and we got a great reception.  Many attendees were fascinated and curious as to how this small device could generate steam for natural hair.

The device is easy to use and as lightweight as some standard blow dryer's and would be perfect for the curly girl on the go. 

Once I plugged it in I immediately noticed a flaw.  The cord was very short and as a salon owner I would love to use this on my curly clients but I would need an extension cord. After powered on the small red led light will blink for about 30 secs while the water is heating up.  (A small amount of water must be poured into the reservoir first).  When the LED stays on red its time to steam. The only other problem that a consumer may have is that you have to hold down the power button to emit the steam. 

I took the Q-redew back to my salon and started testing it out on clients.  Again they were all surprised that this device that looks like a diffuser was actually steamer! We have began to recommend this tool as part of our consultations for our curly clients.

Overall, my final recommendation is to lengthen the power cord. The Q-redew should retail very well in the curly world especially dry climates or for curly clients with dehydrated hair.

Does education continue after beauty school? Sure hope so!

I've been in the business for over 20 years and yes I still invest in my career. Learning how to cut, color or style hair properly doesn't stop in cosmetology school, it continues long after you are licensed. If classes are available I take as many continuing education courses to fill up my calendar.  Why? Could it be because of the long term gain, or a new product line, new technology, a fresh set of eyes on the basics, new cutting and coloring techniques? ...Absolutely, all of the above.

A few of the major companies that I have trained with are Aveda, Redken, L'oreal, Paul Mitchell, and Toni & Guy. Taking advanced or continuing education allows me to stay current with the latest trends in the industry.  After hours, I watch  dozens professional hair cutting demo's on Youtube and subscriptions to  Fashion Week and behind the scenes footage. It makes my business more marketable, me more relevant and provides me with the necessary confidence to provide the perfect experience for each client that sits in my chair.

The next time you see your stylist, ask him or her when was the last time they took any classes and what was it for.  If you see your stylist once a month or bi monthly then this conversation should be initiated by him or her. I'm always excited to share what I've learned or the latest trends in fashion.
Not only because of the education but the experience. Priceless!

Education drives my business.

News: Oklahoma School changes it's policies...and apologizes (a day late)


The simple thought that this beautiful little girls hair was deemed not "presentable" is ridiculous! 

The Curly Revolution applauds her parents for taking a stand and not conforming to one institutions opinions. It's sad that the institution was her ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!!!

Hair Relaxer sales declined?

@curlyrEVOLution fact:
"Hair relaxer sales decline 26% over the past five years" reports Mintel

"The natural hair trend is driving an increase in sales of styling products such as styling moisturizers, setting lotions, curl creams, pomades, etc., but the increase has caused the relaxer segment to decline in sales," says Tonya Roberts, multicultural analyst at Mintel. "A look at expenditures from 2008-2013 shows steady growth in the Black haircare category for all categories except relaxers/perms."

Sheryl Underwood gets "Nasty" on the TALK about "Natural Hair"




*In the clip above from her CBS show “The Talk,” Sheryl Underwood spoke out about “nappy” “Afro” hair during a discussion about Heidi Klum saving her children’s hair after it had been cut.
Klum’s children with ex-husband Seal have “huge Afros,” as she described them. Underwood responded, “Why would you save Afro hair?” She went on to imply that hair like that wasn’t desirable and woman in a hair shop would never ask for that “curly, nappy, beady” hair.

Sheryl's knee jerk reaction may have gotten her in hot water with her fans. What do you think?

Strength of Nature, Tress Talk Brunch


Last week Curly rEVOLution had the pleasure to attend the Strength of Nature, Tress Talk Brunch at Mandalay Bay. Yay! We got to dress up and go to the Strip! As locals we don’t get to go there often. Anyhow, we met in a cozy conference room, had brunch and talked about as many things Curly as we could in a few hours. Special appearances were made by NaturallyCurly.com Founder, Michelle Bryer and Actress, Elise Neal (Scandal, CSI, The Hughley’s).


“We’ve Come a Long Way Baby,” as they say and boy have we come a long way in how women’s hair has evolved. A greater acceptance has emerged and more and more women are embracing their “natural curl.” Strength of Nature now features an affordable line of products targeted specifically at our various textures. Everyone was on board with the evolution (rEVOLution) which gave Danielle and I a lot  to smile about. The Curly rEVOLution we started in Las Vegas to ignite the passion in others to rock their natural hair is happening all over the country. More products are being developed for curly hair so stayed tuned.


Ms Breyer spoke about some interesting facts relating to the Curly hair care consumer.


Did you know? ...
  • 78% of people do not like their texture at some point in their life
  • Most people don't begin to accept their hair until their 20s
  • Natural hair is no longer a trend. Now that we have a broader definition of beauty, these are now accepted styles that will be here forever.


What do people base their curly hair products purchases on?
  • Price
  • Accessibility
  • Online reviews
  • Ingredients
  • Stylist recommendations
  • Friend and family recommendations
* Recommendations are much more important to the more coily types


It was a pleasure meeting all of the attendees and we look forward to more great news from you all to broadcast via the Curly rEVOLution. If you have news to share please send us an email at info@naturallycurlylv.com.

The Bomber?? WTW?

It's true...this man had great curly hair and was a son, nephew, friend etc. But he will forever be known as a terrorist and yet made the cover of the Rolling Stones. As a specialist in "curly hair" I have had 1 customer bring me a picture of his haircut (but she blocked out his face) and later told me who he was...before I knew who he was I raved about his great curly hair but was irked that it was him deep down inside. What are your thoughts about him being on the cover curleez?

Steam treatments

Enjoying a few moments at the studio under the steamer.  I used a creamy delight and hair growth oil mixture by Desert Diva Locs. Summer months out here in Vegas naturally curly hair gets dried out easily.  I co-wash daily and shampoo once per week and when I can I treat myself to a hairapy session.

"CAN I PET YOUR FRO?"

We agree that getting the word out about Natural Hair is a beautiful thing...but have we taken this too far? Share your thoughts...

If I was in their shoes, I would not have made this choice. I do not like being touched by strangers and I don't want nasty, grabby hands all up in this luxurious nappy goodness. And ultimately, I don't like the idea of this "exhibit." You do not need to touch me nor should you ask to touch me because I look "different." I am not under any contract to "explain" my hair nor do I have to educate curious White folks about it--which seems to be the driving force behind this project. Google can do that for them and anyone else curious about my hair and hair like mine. And I assure you the Google Gods are more than willing to help on that quest. ~Alice in Nappyland article can be read here

From a recent interview with a supporter of the Curly Revolution;

As an African-American woman with curls that I am just now beginning to embrace, I have been met with many questions from my not-so African-American, not-so-curly counterparts concerning my hair. Everything from, "You have such nice hair for a black girl" to "Your curls are so beautiful; what are you mixed with?" to the infamous "can I touch it?". While I can understand the curiosity of those whose hair is different than mine, I do not like to be objectified by said curiosity. I believe that I can understand what this exhibit in New York hopes to address, however, I also think it does further objectify Black Women and the differences in our hair. Black Women, in my opinion, should not be put on display like animals in a zoo. I honestly still don't get the fascination. Natural Hair, Dreads, Relaxed- beauty is beauty and has every right to be admired, and is a form of art. And with most precious art, it is best to be admired and not touched.  ~Kenra
