Growing up I always loved having straight hair. But of course, this was before flat irons were even a thing. So my mother would have to blow dry my hair in order for me to get the straight hair. I tried to learn how to do it when I was a teen and even now as an adult, but it was just a lot of work, to be honest. Especially with someone who has curly thick hair.
Having to hold the blow dryer and round brush can be tiring on the arm. Of course, I can just go to a hair salon and get a blowout but that means having to spend money. Which is not ideal for me. I’ve had my eye on the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer for a while now. I’ve seen reviews and videos of bloggers raving about it but they didn’t have hair like mine. I had to test it out for myself.
Revlon One-Step Dryer and Volumizer
I’m sure you already know what the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is but if you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s a blow dryer + brush in one. It does detangle your hair, dries it and gives your hair volume as you use it. It also reduces frizz and gives you a nice smooth finish. There are 3 different heat settings (hot, low and cool).
When using the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer, I realized REALLY QUICK that the “hot” setting is powerful. I wouldn’t recommend the “hot” setting if you have thin fine hair but if you have textured hair like me, definitely use the “hot” setting but also be careful when holding the styler.[asym_gallery style=”style_one” full=”no” layout=”portrait”]
How-To Get Salon Quality at Home
As you can see this is what my hair looks like when I get out of the shower. The only hair product I applied is “heat protector” before I started to use the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. I highly recommend using a heat protector before using the styler or any hot styling tool for that matter.
You want to make sure you detangle your hair before using the styler. Once you have, you want to section off your hair. For me, I always start at the bottom and work my way up. That’s just how I do my hair and what works best to achieve volume at the roots. You’re going to want to make sure that you’re using the styler under the hair and rotating it as you brush down.
Verdict? I freaking love this styler. It has literally cut my styling time in half. Before I would just blowdry my hair and then use a flat iron. Which would take at least 1 hour to 1.5 hours. But now with the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer, I can have my hair done within 30 mins because it’s blow drying and styling it at the same time. If you’re interested in purchasing the styler, you can find them at Target.
