I have seen so many hair straightening hairbrushes on so many blogs lately which have left me wanting to try one but I’m not sure they’d work well for my hair as it’s very fine, long and I have a lot of it. When I saw the Revlon Salon One Step Hair Dryer and Styler £49.99 I thought it might be the perfect compromise, especially for hair as thick as mine.
When it comes to blowdrying my hair, I can’t comfortably dry my hair whilst brushing it at the same time as it takes me such a long time to dry it but a dryer and styler in one hopefully would alleviate any arm ache from holding an heavy hair drier for a long time. The Revlon Salon One Step Hair Dryer and Styler has the power of a dryer with the precision of a styler to supposedly give smooth, frizz-free results in half the time.
The Revlon Salon One Step Hair Dryer and Styler features ionic technology for fast, silky-smooth shiny results with a large paddle design which dries and smooths the hair quickly. The styler itself is described as being lightweight with an ergonomic design for maximum comfort and ease of use.
The styler particularly appealed to me for when I style the back of my head as it’s not the easiest to do alone, without mirrors behind you and I liked that the paddle was such a big size as it’d be able to hold large pieces of hair at a time. I’ve tried blow drying brushes before in the past but I’ve never had much luck with them as they usually have such a small surface area so I never found them to reduce my blowdrying time as I’d have to do my hair in tiny sections to ensure it didn’t become tangled within the bristles.
The styler has a long plastic handle with a thumb grip which is easy to hold and it’s lighter than my hairdryer which is a bonus. The handle has a swivel cord which helps when styling the back of my hair and the base of the styler features three heat settings including a cold setting which can be selected by twisting the base. I really like how long the bristles are on the paddle as they hold onto large pieces of hair at a time. Time wise I find that it does reduce my blow drying time but my favourite part of using the styler is how smooth and polished it leaves my hair.
Usually after blowdrying my hair, I have to use my straighteners as my hair’s naturally very frizzy but whenever I use this styler to dry my hair it leaves my hair so much smoother than using an hairdryer alone. I do have to use an hair straightener to tame my baby hair and finish off my layers and ends of my hair but I definitely cut down the blowdrying time as well as my straightening time which can only be a positive as it’ll hopefully mean less heat damage over time.
I’ve found it to be particularly effective for when I’m doing an updo and need my hair to be thoroughly dry and relatively tamed, but it doesn’t need to be straightened as I can just use this styler alone. Overall I’m really impressed and have really appreciated it on the warmer mornings when I don’t want the intensity of an hairdryer as the Revlon Salon One Step Hair Dryer and Styler isn’t as hot as an hairdryer, but due to the vents within the paddle it dries the hair quickly and efficiently without leaving me super hot and flustered like I am with an hairdryer.
