I have had a dryer in my relaxed days for years, a really good brand too >>see here<< I used my dryer for dryer my roller-set and steam with a plastic cap for years. Then once I decide to transition and started doing more research I became more and more intrigued by a steamer.
I did a lot of research on various brands, types on wheels and tables top.
In the end the brand did not so much matter as much as whether one opt for a table top steamer vs. on wheels steamer.
The reasons I CHOOSE a on ‘ wheel steamer are as follows:
a). Larger Steamer Hood
b). I can move it around easily and not having to always put it up and pulling down for each use.
c). I don’t have to worry about finding a table top or placement area to put steamer on to steam.
d). A lot more sturdier than a lot of the table top I have seen and read reviews on.
e). Overall value for money, their is not much of wide price range b/n buying a table top and investing in hard and good quality on wheels steamer.
After assembling the steamer
I am really impressed with this steamer, although I had few minor issues which the manufacturer quickly rectify and I am happy so far and now. I have been using twice per week.
I would like to point out that this steamer uses distilled/de-ionised water. It prolong the life of the steamer especially if you live in a hard water area like I do.
I will be honest though, I would reconsider this on two factor a). If you steam often then you may find you will be spending a little on the special water required, although I bought 5 litre of the water for £3.99 and the steamer only need about 1.5 of the cup you see up top to give one a 30 min steam. b). You may want to get one that uses tap water cheaper and easier to access, because sometime when I go to get the special water it is always sold out….slightly annoying.
Hope this helped some if you are thinking of purchasing a ‘hair steamer’.
