Second day hair - shower humidity helps my curls

So i slept on my waves/curls last night and they got straighter. I went into the bathroom this morning, closed the door, turned the shower on as hot as it could be, and hung out in there for about five minutes. My hair curled right up. Roots were flatter than yesterday, but I guess you can't have it all lol. Put some smoothing creme on after for frizz and out to church I went.
Anyone else find the steam from a shower helps their hair?
2b/2c, Med density, Med Porosity, Fine/Med width, Med length, layers start below ears. Just my shot in the dark for my hair properties. Growing out bleached highlights Fall 2012, growing out dyed hair March 2013. Makes for a confusing mix of properties. Learning how different processes affect hair properties. Using lot of drugstore products right now. Determining what's right for my hair in my climate. Pittsburgh has a little bit of everything weather wise. Modified CGM since March 2013.

    It helps mine. My hair loves humidity. I can rarely get good second day hair, but the times it has worked best I've done a light spray of water into my layers, then hopped into a steamy shower. A gentle scrunch with a moisturizing product (I'm currently using a sample of Botanical Spirits Shea Moisture Cream) helps me after that.

    After sleeping on wet hair I find the combination of shower humidity and dry shampoo revitalise my curls :)
