Steaming hair, hooded dryer? How does it work?

Hi there :)

|'m a 2b/c wavy, proud of my waves, craving for moisturize and DT's since I'm over proteined and my waves are simply flat, soft, breaking, tangling when under the shower and well I wear my hair up. I did an DT with and DIY steamer: a plastic shower cap, wet hot towel, plastic bag. But it's such a mess: Need to rewet the towell every 10 minutes and It worked some, but still not the way I wanna. It's important for my hair that the DT is really going in to my hairshaft :wink:

Now I'm about to buy this sort of thing , a $(KGrHqZ,!l!FCenVbuUSBQ6D56Ui7g~~60_84.JPG

it's a hooded hairdryer, wired. Well, first of all:
does this works the same as a hairsteamer/ the Jessicurl heat towell and how do you use it to make it actually work. Won't the heat be damaging to the hair? Do you use it with a plastic cap underneath or won't the plastic cap survive this:wink:

I've done some research but I really couldn't found some good answers. I'm new to the whole DT things. Been on CG for about 3 years but since a couple of months I'm really do all the other stuff like Dt's, PT's, AVC rinces etc.

Thanks in advance :profileright:

    I use a dryer attachment to do my deep treatments. I cover my head with a plastic cap after piling my hair at the top of my head and then I sit under my dryer attachment cap for about an hour or so. I have a hooded dryer but I find it too big and cumbersome to use, I hate taking it out. I got my dryer attachment at Sally's for about $12 and it works with the heat of your blow dryer. I got the one by Conair and it can be folded up taken with you when you travel and takes up minimal space. The heat allows me to get the most out of my deep treatment by allowing the conditioner to really absorb. I defiantly end up with more moisturized hair by using the attachment.

    The only issue I have is that sometimes you have to come up with ways to keep it from popping off your head like putting a towel on top of it to weigh it down or what I do is lean my head against my chair and that works.

    Girl that things looks like you are about to become a superhero and rocket into space, but I think it is just a soft capped dryer. So I would use it like it was a normal dryer.

    My only question is make sure it is long enough so that you don't have to hold up those rockets while you condition.

    haha, well I actually bought the Jessicurl thermal treatment. Combined with an plastic cap it's seemed actually a better idea then this crazy thing indeed :D thanks anyway for your advice :icon_smile:
