I've had my steamer for about a month now and I just used it Thursday for the first time. Let me tell you that I love love love how my hair turned out. I orignaly wanted to stay under for only 20 minutes but I was enjoying myself so much I stayed for another 20 +5 lol.
I love it. It makes my DC work so much better for my hair. It absobs better and leaves my hair alot softer too. I've been using the same DC for yearssssss and have never felt my hair so soft after deep conditioning for 30 minutes under my hooded dryer.
I also think that steaming is better for deep conditioning when you use a dry conditioner. Well not dry, but one of those conditioners that seems like it doestn't move on your hair like it just sits ontop of it instead of penetrating. The thicker types of conditioners like Matrix Biolage Hydrating Conditiong Balm. or Kenra.
It works well with the moist conditioners too from what I see. But I won't go back to the hooded dryer unless I'm using a very moist,think type of deep conditioner. I love my steamer. I hope you enjoy yours just as much.
