heat damage from dt?

The last time I did a deep conditioning treatment, i tried using a new shower cap that was thicker than my old one. Since I don't have a hooded dryer, I waved my new blow dryer around my head for about 10. This time, I wasn't feeling much heat since my new blow dryer was not as strong as the old one. I then tried using a plastic bag instead of the shower cap which seemed to work better. When I took the plastic bag off, I saw some smoke coming from my head. Could I have heat damage from doing DTs?...
3c/4a, hooray!

    Not at all. Remember you had heat trapped beneath plastic, and when you take it off the heat is hitting the cooler air and guess what you'll see? Steam! It happens all the time when I do my hair.

    So don't worry ;)

    i dont think it would damage it, ive done that before, with the dryer but got sick of holding my hand there so i gave up on it

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
