So ever since I finished reading, Textured Tresses: The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining and Styling Natural Hairby Diane Da Costa, I have been kind of obsessing and wishing for a hair steamer. I really enjoy taking an hour on my sundays, glooping tons of deep conditioner on my hair and sitting under a hair dryer (soft bonnet) thinking how all those moisturizing agents are making my hair softer and easier to manage as time goes by! Hair steamers from what I have read seem to do the same thing in terms of deep conditioning, but you can also add essential oils and other ingredients to help with scalp issues, according to Da Costa. Coming from the perspective of a drier texture of hair, I would LOVE to get my hands on one of these to try it out since I feel my hair is always thirsty! If it doesn't wind up wrapped in a box under the xmas tree, I think I will mostly likely purchase Secura S-192 Hair and Facial Steamer through amazon for $79.99. According to reviews, the amount of water it can hold steams for about 15 minutes. The steamers that are actually on stands run into the $100s and above. My reasoning is that I will try it out to see if I like it first before investing in a pricier version - plus this version allows for facial steaming as well to clear out all those clogged pores.
