ah no its not recommended, hmm steam pod, I have one and although its fab at getting my hair really smooth and silky I still suffer from the crispy ends the day after. I combat mine by putting a drop of oil or conditioner on them every morning and night with a good soak in coconut oil or deep condition mask overnight if I am washing it the next morning. its less drying that my GHDs but can't say its as good as the hype but does give a lovely finish. I guess the only real way to deal with crispy ends is to get them cut but I don't want to yet. on with the battle!
