Q-Redew Hairstyling Vapor Wand
 
I am so intrigued by this hairstyling tool, Q-Redew, Homepage -- Anyone have one that they could post a review of?

hippiechic81 02-24-2012 11:06 AM

I read the article and checked out the website and I REALLY want one!!!!! But $70 is a bit expensive ( ok very!). I'd still love to hear any reviews too. :bigsmurf:

Ondulee 02-24-2012 02:16 PM

why did you have to post that? That's exactly the kind of thing I'v been tempted to use my garment steamer on my hair this winter...I can't afford it though, I really want it.

Devushka 02-24-2012 02:26 PM

I know. :evil4: :D
Since the first time I saw one of those Q-Renews, I've been thinking about it, but I can't make up my mind. I'd have to be a little more sure before taking the plunge and buying one.

double post

I really want to try one of these, but I just cannot make myself take the plunge. It is one of those items which would be Holy Grail, Batman! or completely useless.

wild~hair 02-24-2012 05:09 PM

ZOMG, what is that thing?

It seems like a really, really good idea!

I cannot afford it right now. But if people start buying them and saying they are awesome, I will probably eventually get one. It seems just too brilliant an idea not to.

Skeptical.

Q-Redew contest winner
 
I am also intrigued about this product-I would love for the contest winner of this product to give us a review on this!! Keeping my fingers crossed-lol!

CurlyFireHorse 02-25-2012 10:57 AM

I know this sounds a little silly, but I wonder if you rigged a hose with a diffuser on the end to a humidifier if you could at least get an idea if the Q-Redew would work?

Devushka 02-25-2012 05:30 PM

I know. I entered the daily contest here on NC.com to try and win one. I would gladly and dutifully give a full review of how it worked for my hair (different dew points, different styling products used, 2nd-3rd-4th day hair, etc.) because the product just seems to make sense to me.

Btw, the humidifier & diffuser idea doesn't seem so far-fetched. Heck -- Something like that might have been the prototype for the Q-Redew.

ninja dog 02-25-2012 06:38 PM

Why is this better than a mist of water from a spray bottle? Because of the prongs-as-diffuser? They look too long and pointy to be effective, imo.

Sorry to be a pill. If someone explains why she thinks it might work, I'd be glad to listen.

CurlyFireHorse 02-25-2012 07:16 PM

The main benefit would be not having to touch my hair. I can mist my hair and scrunch and it gets frizzy. So this would hopefully help with that problem.

Devushka 02-25-2012 10:04 PM

Water sprayed from a water bottle never worked for my hair. It didn't revive curls, it just created frizz. With this Q-Redew product I get the impression that it's a much finer mist, plus it's a warm mist (instead of the bigger drops of room temperature water that I was getting from a spray bottle), so I'm wondering if those features might make a big difference.

wild~hair 02-26-2012 01:24 AM

See I love using a spay bottle with water to refresh my curls. Maybe that's why this seems like such a good idea to me -- a finer mist of water, PLUS it's warm. Warm or even hot water helps set my curls better.

This seems like it might, just maybe, infuse my hair with the moisture it craves, especially in the wintertime.

I'm very intrigued.

Piquing my interest!
 
As a hairstylist for over 30 years and being tagged as a curly hair-specialist .this tool has me curious and excited.....i long ago gave up the rewetting of my hair to restyle unless I am going to drench it and start anew.....I normally suggest to my clients and I myself prefer a moist towel and flipping the hair and pressing the moisture into the hair to revamp the curls.....this tool could truly be a blessing for spot curling and for people on the go.....business women, busy moms ..etc.............I may have to take that plunge! and if I do.I will surely post an honest review!

MojoDojo 02-26-2012 12:27 PM

I've been tempted to see if it would do anything for my post-hardhat hair - but $70? If it works it'd be worth it, but if it doesn't, would be a huge investment for nothing.

Devushka 02-26-2012 01:58 PM

Yeah, you have to pay the shipping plus a $10 restocking fee if you decide it's not for you and want to return it. Once there are more impartial reviews that are favorable (i.e., reviews other than the great ones that manufacturers of course feature on their websites), then I'll be more inclined to give it a try.

I admit there's a part of me that's hoping for really favorable reviews on places like nc.com. Moisture, curls, and 2-3+ day hair without weighing down my fine-textured hair with more products sounds great!

IAgirl 02-27-2012 01:21 PM

Mmm, skeptical. In the dry winter air, a shot of ambient humidity more like spring/summer (i.e. give the dog a lukewarm bath with the door closed, visit indoor botanical garden) is a good thing. But to do something like put my hair in the diffuse vapor of my (warm mist) humidifier would overwhelm it with water droplets. I actually have one of those "ionic steam hot roller" thingies, maybe I'll try the steamer part to refresh my hair...
To me there's a huge difference between bona fide humidity and mist. The former is my friend, the latter is not. As soon as you leave the microclimate of the little misting tool, your hair will begin losing moisture to the air around it. I think they need to do a lot of post-marketing research, taking some measurements (how much do curls shrink, what is the change in wavelength or curl diameter, how long does the change persist and in what sort of relative humidities) to get the doubters and people who usually spray their hair with water to refresh for a pittance to part with $70 for a better mousetrap.

Mcfrizzy 02-27-2012 02:00 PM

at first it seemed interesting to me like a technological spray bottle if that makes sense...but ive always thought steams on hair in the shower for example made it poof up????Guess not, but like $70, its too much i would give it $20 if that not to cheap :p
