Does anyone else have a general Ain’t nobody got time for dat attitude when it comes to blow-drying their hair? It’s just that… I have a lot of hair, and it takes forever to get it dry with a blow dryer. Trying to maneuver the heavy hair tool plus a brush is exhausting when it can take about an hour to finish, plus styling afterword with a flat iron or curler.
So when I first laid eyes on the Revlon Hair Dryer and Styler, I immediately knew I needed to put it to the test. The new, revolutionary tool is a combination of a wide paddle brush and and blow dryer. Back to the Future much!? The idea appealed to me right off the bat because it seemed like it would be a much less arm-straining process, and would help with drying the hard to reach areas like the back and tops of my head.
Watch the video below to see how my first run with the Hair Dryer and Styler went:
So I’m totally and completely digging this tool. It gave me the same, if not better, results than my expensive hair dryer in half the time and really with half the effort. I can totally do this while watching YouTube, not looking in a mirror once, and get decent results. It also leaves my hair really shiny and soft, instead of dry and straw-like like other blow dryers. I think it’s because the bristles of the brush are distributing the oils and the heat is locking the moisture in.
I think this would also be a really great tool to travel with; you can certainly use it as a normal brush when it’s off and unplugged, and it will save room in your luggage by not packing an entire blow dryer. It’s also lighter than it looks!
You all have seen my curly hair, and I’m very surprised at how well this tamed it— so if you have hair any less unruly than mine, I’m pretty confident you might be able to achieve a sleek straight look. As I mentioned in the video, there’s no real way to use this and maintain curls or kinky waves since you are forced to brush them out while drying. But, if you prefer the straighter look anyway, this is for you.
The best part is that the Revlon Hair Dryer and Styler is only $50, and considering I paid over $100 for my traditional blow dryer, this is looking better and better. If you hate blow drying your hair but it’s a necessary evil in your life, give this a go!
What other beauty tools would you combine for convenience?
