    I swear by steam treatments. Below is my old technique. I purchased a steamer on the stand from Ebay which works so much easier.

    Steam Treatment

    You will need:
    • 2 turbie turbans from the Dollar Store
    • 2 plastic caps
    • 1 pair of rubber gloves
    • Deep conditioner of your choice

      After co-washing or shampoo (loo or no) put a deep conditioner in your hair.

      Wet 2 turbies and microwave in a bowl for 10 minutes.
      Wring out the turbies using the rubber gloves.
      Wrap hair with first turbie
      Cover turbie with plastic cap
      Repeat with second turbie and plastic cap
      In the end you will have turbie, plastic cap, turbie, and plastic cap.
      Sit under hair dryer for 20 minutes.
      Rinse and style hair as usual.
