No their horrible

Since the above poster was emphatic in their answer they must have tried it. However, steam does help relieve head colds. You can go to a pharmacy and buy a vaporizer and also ask the pharmacist for preferably a oil base to open up sinus' so you can put this on the lip of the vaporizer. The steam comes to a boil (automatic shut off should the water boil away) and passes over the lip with the oil in it. Put it in your bedroom at night with windows and doors closed. The old fashion way is putting Vicks or other chest rubs into an old pot on the stove with a hand towel over your head to trap the vapors that come up from the pot. Another good way is having a relatively hot shower and letting the steam penetrate your sinus'.
