Reviews for REVLON One-Step Volumizer Original 1.0 Hair Dryer and Hot Air Brush, Black
People say Revlon is really similar to Drybar.
BEST HAIR TOOL EVER! Sorry, DryBar!
Okay this may be lengthy but only because I am in love with this tool! You’ve been warned! So, my hair is thick - I have a lot of it and it is of a thick texture. Naturally I have a ton of volume which is why I go for a layered haircut. And with layered hair styles the best method of styling is via blowout. I’ve done the whole hair dryer and round brush method like the stylists do and it’s fine but it’s just not efficient to do every time I’ve washed my hair (and that’s not everyday). So most days I’ll let my hair be it’s normal (not straight) self like you see in the before picture. To the rescue comes this hairdryer! I have seen ads on Facebook for this product and was always weary to buy from not so familiar sites. I hoped Amazon would carry a well known brand someday, and they finally have with this by Revlon. I actually owned a similar but older tool from Revlon which was supposed to achieve the same outcome. But the barrel was round and skinny, which was probably a design flaw and why they came up with this godsend. I gave this baby a go last night. I used the low setting and my hair was very wet - just out of the shower. Obviously with the low setting and my hair being very wet it wouldn’t work as quickly or as effectively. I take it also my hair texture and thickness attributed to this. But still, not bad for the first try. Took about 20 mins which compared to blow drying and then flat ironing was still quicker. I tried it again earlier tonight after washing my ha... Read More
I made it my mission to have better hair during Quarantine from the COVID-19 pandemic. I have VERY thick hair, and it is very wavy/curly. My goal was to extend my hair wash days, and find something that helped tame my frizz for when I absolutely had to use heat on my hair. I saw tons of reviews on TikTok for this product, and when I saw it go on sale for under $30, I decided to give it a try. Holy. Crap. Best thing I've bought this year. My hair, which normally takes 25 minutes to dry in sections with my DryBar blow dryer and a round brush, can be completely dry in 12 minutes. TWELVE. MINUTES. Also in those 12 minutes, I am able to look like I just had a blow out done. My hair feels so light and silky. It's basically frizz-free, and with a smoothing cream and some dry shampoo, I can blow dry it once and it last for days. This is revolutionary. I've recommended this to several of my thick haired and curly haired friends. I love this product.
I bought this product being very skeptical because a product must be very powerful to handle my hair. I have been straightening my hair since i was 6 or 7 and I’ve used any straightening product out there. I thought this one would burn by the time I straighten all my hair. Not only it did not burn, but it only takes 20-30 mins only. My hair is super long and curly and I usually use big round brush and drybar blow dryer. With those it takes about 45-60 mins. I am so impressed by this product. The only issues are 1- the sound is too loud so if u wanna use it late at night or super early in the morning, it may not be a considerable act if u have neighbors. 2- it actually straighten so well that ur hair gets flat on top and oily faster than usual (and i have super dry hair and skin). But I still really recommend it and give 5stars. 😊 love it. I just hope it doesn’t burn soon lol
If you blow dry your hair daily or even weekly, buy this
And to say I almost bought the drybar equivalent for $150 ... I had been eyeing this brush for quite a while when google, you know google who knows everything you do, casually slipped that Amazon had a coupon for almost 50% off and I, a savvy shopper jumped right in. I have very curly hair and I blow dry it once a week and it was a bit harsh for my arms to hold down the brush and dryer etc etc. This brush has just made my life SO much easier, it’s efficient and I love the finishing result. My hair looks like I just came from the salon and I get compliments ALL THE TIME. And to be honest the longer you go without washing, the better it looks! I wash it at day 4 for hygiene’s sake but honestly, it’s when it’s looking amazing.
I went back and forth in if I should get this Revlon or the double shot drybar (that is $100 more) I decided to go with the Revlon and could not be happier with my choice! Yes it gets hot but omg this thing is amazing! I have thick hair and I got to blowdry it in about 15mins with this vs the 30-40mins it takes with just the regular blow-dryer! It has amazing volume and I didn't even have to run a straightener over my hair when I was done with the Revlon!! So so happy with this product!
The holy grail I've been looking for--from wavy to blowout sleek
I cannot say enough good things about this hair dryer! It is the holy grail dryer I have been looking for! I took a few weeks to write this review because I saw some of the reviews said that the dryer died out on them, but for me--so far so good. I have naturally wavy, fine hair, but a ton of it. Many years ago, I used a Connair dryer which gave me all sorts of frizz and took an hour for me to dry my hair. I switched to a $200 professional dryer which cut my drying time down to 45 minutes and gave me less frizz (using a round brush to dry my hair). But drying my hair was so time consuming I only did it once a week. I saw an advertisement for this dryer on Instagram and decided to buy it via Amazon. It did not disappoint! I dried my hair in 20 minutes. TWENTY minutes! (insert: angelic singing) It was so fast and easy! No more achy arms from holding up a dryer and trying to wrap my hair around a round brush! And it was straight, frizz-free and looked like a got a blow out. I feel beautiful! Ladies, do yourself a favor--if you have curly or wavy hair that takes forever to dry, give this dryer a try. It's so amazing; I already bought it for my bestie too who has similar hair texture and length. One thing, this dryer gets HOT so make sure to use a good serum/leave in conditioner that protects your hair from heat. I use the drybar Hot Tody. I've never had sleeker hair. I saw other reviews that the dryer was smoking but its actually your hair releasing steam from the heat. It happen... Read More
Amazing Salon Quality Blowout
I was shocked when I saw how many great reviews this product had on here. I’m not sure how many of these reviewers were influenced by the Hollie Woodward’s of the world but let’s add another one to that list - me. Hot diggity dog this thing is AMAZING. The first time I used it I received so many compliments asking if I just had a blow out at drybar. My ends looked so fresh and healthy I imagine due to the round curling motion of the brush on the end. I will say it does get my hair super hot so I can’t touch the strand right after I dry it. My only two opportunities for improvement I would suggest is 1) the packaging is sealed so well that it was a little difficult to get it out of the box! I ended up having to rip it open 2) it’s a little difficult to turn the knob from off to cool to low to high speed with one hand (if the other hand is being used to hold a section of your hair). With hair dryers that have buttons to press it’s pretty easy to hold the hair dryer in your other hand and press the button but I had to put hair dryer in between my legs or on the counter to turn the knob and then use. Not a huge deal just something different that I can absolutely get used too. All in all, 10/10 would recommend and would buy again.
Even a novice can achieve a blowout with this product!
I have thick wavy hair. Back in high school I would straighten my hair almost daily.. took me about an hour and a half to blow dry then straighten my hair. I was always in awe of the hairstylists when they could use a round brush and style my hair with a hairdryer. I am NOT skilled in blow drying or styling my hair whatsoever. I recently stated leaving my hair naturally curly and using products and a diffuser to achieve this look. However I do prefer my hair straight, but had given up on this because it was too time consuming for me. On occasion I will treat myself to DryBar and I am in love with my hair. However, that’s 50 dollars a session so I only go on very special occasions. I had been wanting to try this due to the rave reviews and I tried it for the first time today. I was able to achieve a look very similar to my blowouts at DryBar on my first try. (A little frizzer but not bad at all and I’ll take it, I’m not a professional). It took about 20 minutes total! (Faster than my curly days). I am in love with this product. If I can do it anyone can!!! I’d still go to dry bar probably on special occasions but now at least I have the flexibility to achieve a blowout at home 👏🏻 It is amazing. I am so happy.
GAME CHANGER! (Short hair YAAASSS)
Now I have had long hair and short hair.... I've gone through DryBars hair dryer, a T3, and now I have a Dyson... best investment ever when I had long hair... I finally got this baby during cyber Monday deal and tried it... GAME CHANGER! I use this MORE than my Dyson! Now... I have shoulder length hair and my hair is semi thick but silky and naturally wavy/curly. But regardless of your type I think this would work its magic! My sister has thick long black hair to her lower back... She didn't find it as useful as the Dyson... but I think she didn't do it right lol. DEFINITLY WORTH IT! I dried my hair in less than 8 minutes! 5 minutes the quickest... 8 mins if you use the cool feature to cool ur hair down
Best drying tool!
Live this drying brush. I tried a couple of slightly cheaper ones, but wasn’t that impressed. Was about to buy the $$$ one from DryBar and read a review where the person thought the Revlon model did just as good a job. I was very impressed with how quickly it dried my hair and most importantly, no friz!! I usually have to use a brush while drying, straight iron and/or wear the air dry curlers to get a smooth look. After using this product, my hair looks like it does after my Aveda hair stylist does it. What a great buy!! Perfect hair every time I dry it!
