Tutorial- Bantu Knot Out w/ the Hydra Steam Moisturizing System

In this tutorial, I'm reviewing the Hydra Steam Moisturizing System from SoftSheen-Carson using my professional Hair Steamer on my friend Marissa. Her hair is currently heat damaged (mostly in the front) and she wants to transition back to her gorgeous curls. I believe this system is going to make her hair stronger and help create amazing moisture for her two textures. 

The Hydra Steam Moisturizing System is a five-part system that gives hair ultimate hydration to provide you with frizz-free curls with definition and moisture. These products contain aloe, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that help restore the pH balance in the hair.


  • Sulfate-Free Cleanser removes build-up in the hair, helps to hydrate and preps it for your conditioning steam treatment. 
  • The Steam Masque is activated by using steam (preferably from a hair steamer) to infuse your hair with water and install moisture.

  • Moisturizing Sealing Spray is a leave in conditioning spray you use after your steam treatment that ensures moisturizing ingredients are secured in your hair for lasting moisture.
  • Curl Designing Cream gives a medium and flexible and leaves your hair with lots of moisture and definition with frizz control.

I am loving how this system makes natural hair more manageable and defining!  Have you tried these products yet?

Easy "Top Knot Bun" using Carol's Daughter

Here is a simple, quick and cute hair style to try if you're having a bad hair day, have a holiday hair appt coming up or you just don't feel like doing your hair. This is my "go-to" style!

Products Used: Carols Daughter "Healthy Hair Butter", Elastic hair band and a cute head band (optional)

  1. I used the healthy hair butter to moisturize and seal my ends (about a quarter sized amount).
  2. I gathered my hair (a little past the crown of my head) and used the elastic band to secure my hair and make a bun. I wrapped the band twice around and then the third time I made the bun.
  3. I put the head band on to add a little fun and accessorize the style.

And THAT'S IT!! This style took no more than about 3-5 minutes and I'm out the door!

Have you tried this style before?
