      decent…when used consistently. the fro behaves a ton better after a few treatments, retains moisture better;)

    Thanks for this! I just got the steamer for Christmas. My first experience was not a good one. The the back middle portion of my head got so hot – specifically my scalp. At one point i jumped out wincing in pain and when I looked in the mirror that portion was smoking (the steam rising from my head.)

    I figured out I should have the little holes in the top completely open. I was wondering if anyone else had this experience?

      yep! took me about 3 tries to get a good steam…had extra moisture dripping from spots, and the ‘plug’ wasn’t settled into it’s nook all the way so the initial steam escaped the top. I can’t even keep my head in all the way for the full 18 minutes…gets a tad too hot, but make sure to get in a solid 15 minutes!
