Huetiful hair steamer vs regular dt methods

will this steamer replace silk wraps, and other traditional ways of deep conditioning?
my mom is getting me one for my birthday. has anyone tried it?
here is a link for those that are interested:
I want one too! Unfortunately it isn't in my budget. I did some internet research and I came up with a homemade version. I swear by it. Here is the info:
Steam Treatment

You will need:

r 2 turbie turbans from the Dollar Store
r 2 plastic caps
r 1 pair of rubber gloves

After co-washing condition your hair.

Wet 2 turbies and microwave in a bowl for 10 minutes.
Wring out the turbies using the rubber gloves.
Wrap hair with first turbie
Cover turbie with plastic cap
Repeat with second turbie and plastic cap
In the end you will have turbie, plastic cap, turbie, and plastic cap.
Sit under hair dryer for 20 minutes.
Rinse and style hair as usual.

3b, Medium-Coarse (slight coarse charactericstics), Normal porosity & Low elasticity per Curl Wizard Profile.
Low-poo: Nourish Shampoo
Co-wash: Suave, Vo5, HE, Aussie Moist
Deep Conditioner: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: Nourish Conditioner (Trader Joe's)
Stylers: LA Looks Sports, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil.
Methods: Wet plop or pineapple at night, diffuse in the morning. Scrunch w/joboba, coconut or almond oil.
I don't think steaming the hair will replace other methods of deep conditioning. I think steaming the hair is a great alternative and may not be the "end all be all" for everyone.

If I am doing a hot oil treatment, I opt for using my hair dryer but for regular deep conditioning treatments, I tend to use my steamer.

The salon I go to has both and the stylists tend to use the dryer for conditioning treatments over the steamer.
Thanks for the info.
I just received my steamer today. I will let you know how it goes.
