Q-Redew Hand-held Hair Steamer Review
Steaming your hair has always been a bit of a lengthy process, which many of us are prepared to do. 20-30 minutes is often the kind of sacrifice we must make to ensure our hair is in the best condition. But what if you could get away with a few minutes of steaming to rejuvenate your hair? A relatively new product on the market has arrived called the Q-Redew. This is a handheld mini hair steamer, which claims to be able to do this. But how effective is it? Lets take a closer look at it below.
At this point in time, the Q-Redew is the only handheld steamer we have come across. While some of you may be wondering if this can be a substitute for a traditional tabletop or standalone steamer, we can safely say that it isn’t designed for this purpose. What it is designed for is to compliment your current steamer, and perhaps delay your full on steam treatments by a day or two.
The Q-Redew comes in a nice lime green color, and the water tank on top is more of a brighter green color and has the logo on the front. The trigger is fairly easy to operate, and it is important to note that the trigger releases a bit of water into the steam heating compartment which in turn is then released out of the nozzles once it is heated up. This generally doesn’t take more than a few seconds, but we were a little confused about how this worked at first.
The water reservoir is quite small, this means you won’t get more than a couple of minutes out of each tank. It is quite easy to refill as it simply unclips, but if you intend to do a very thorough job of steaming your hair then you may end up being a little frustrated at having to refill it. The unit itself is not that bulky, and it is more or less the size you would expect it to be. Something that you may not have considered is that this model is great for traveling. With a bit of perseverance you could do a full on hair treatment using the Q-Redew, although this is not really what it is designed for. Still it can work as a portable hair steamer, so this is certainly an advantage. There are 8 nozzles in total, which gives off a good amount of steam when in use. So how effective is it? Well the steam that it produces is certainly hot enough to do a good job of rejuvenating your hair. Working with this model can get a little tiresome after more than ten minutes though, but it isn’t really designed for long periods of use. As you can imagine it does take a little more work than using a traditional steamer, but the quick and satisfying results are a small sacrifice for that. For a quick touch up in the morning or before you head out somewhere, this machine is certainly a quick and easy way to do this.
With a retail price of $70, it does the job it claims to do without costing a fortune. If you want the quickness and convenience of a brief steaming session, then the Q-Redew is the answer to that.
- Easy to use
- Heats up fast
- Even steam distribution
- Great for traveling
- Quick and easy way to rejuvenate hair
- Reservoir doesn’t hold much water
Summary: The Q-Redew does what it claims to do, and is a quick and efficient way to rejuvenate your hair. It isn’t a complete replacement for a traditional steamer, but is a good way to rejuvenate your hair in minutes. You can read some user reviews and check the current pricing on Amazon over here.
