I have a love/hate relationship with my hair — absolutely love it when it’s all done up, but hate the process it takes to get it straight. I may muster up the patience to blow dry it straight once a week, but in all honesty I dread it everytime. That’s why I’m so excited to try the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer.
Had the hardest time finding one because they were all sold out
I first learned of this dryer a few months before Christmas and when fellow Houston bloggerUptown with Elly Brown shared on her Instagram that it was available at Ulta, I high tailed it to the nearest store. I circled the hair tools aisle about three times and had no luck finding it. So I made my way to the counter only to learn that they had just sold the last one to the customer in front of me. It was also sold-out online, so I gave up hope. Continued on with my old dryer and round brush — and sore arms.
Finally was able to find one for myself
Then a couple of months after Christmas it showed up on my feed. Awesome!! I was able to nab mine from Target online for about $55, and waiting impatiently for it to arrive.
Now I’m going to be absolutely truthful to you all, and believe me when I say, this tool is life changing! Not only did it cut my hair drying time in half, but it left my hair super straight and silky. What used to take me 45 minutes to achieve, was now cut to about 25 minutes. In addition, I was able to use one tool to not only dry but also straighten — no need for endless rotations of my round brush and the risk of my hand falling off. I was thrilled.
Here’s a couple of quick tips to make your hair drying experience more pleasant:
- Avoid drying when your hair is soaking wet. I have a lot of hair so I usually have it wrapped in a towel for about 30 minutes and then air dry for another 20 before starting. This helps with cutting down on styling time. If you’re pressed for time, you could run a normal hair dryer to through hair to help speed up the drying process. My youngest, Ava, has a little bit of hair so it takes me 5 minutes to dry up her soaking wet hair, so it depends on your hair type.
- Don’t keep the dryer set on one section of hair for too long or it will burn it, especially if it’s on the high setting. I just use the dryer as I would use a hair brush. Long, steady moving strokes works best for me.
Thanks so much for hanging out with me today and if you decide to get this brush, I’d love to hear what you think!
