My real experience with the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer

Revlon One Step Volumizer

Here’s something you probably don’t know about me. I have zero coordination!  Wasn’t great at sports or dance or anything that required stability or use of any muscle in the arms . That sounds very but here’s where I’m going with this…I’ve never straightened my hair, let me clarify, I’ve never ever straightened my hair on my OWN

I do not have the patience or the coordination to hold a hairbrush and hairdryer simultaneously. For a good 16 yrs, my sister was my “hairstylist” and had given me the best blowouts ever! We truly appreciated the bonding time we had. We would chit chat about our lives and laugh like sisters do for about an hour to 1.5 hours depending on how co-operative my hair wanted to be that day.  

Lately, with both our crazy schedules we haven’t had the time to bond over a good hair session, so, I took it upon myself to learn how to do my own hair. I put my big girl pants on and bought a $200 blow dryer and a frizz free round brush with the hope that I too was talented like my sister and able to work miracles on my course, curly hair ALL BY MYSELF!

Quickly, I realised that I had no talent to be doing this all by myself and really shouldn’t be allowed near a hairdryer and brush! I tangled the brush in my hair, the smell of burnt hair consumed my bathroom and my kids basically were left to fend for themselves for 2.5 hours. The result?  A very tired and overly emotional woman with lacklustre hair. All this sweat and literal tears for a disastrous blowout ? NO sorry this wasn’t for me.

Well I’m positive the hair Angels were watching over me that crazy Sunday afternoon because within a few weeks Revlon sent me THE gift that would change my hair game forever!

The Revlon One – Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is a serious game changer!

Revlon One Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer $64.97

This one step hair dryer is insanely popular on Amazon. It has over 5000 reviews with 4000 of those reviewers giving it  5 star rating. The lightweight, portable, One – Step design is unique as the oval shape allows for two different types of brushes to work together simultaneously. The longer, flatter side acts as a hair-straightening paddle brush, while the rounded corners lift the hair from its roots and create volume like a round brush does. Compared to a conventional blow dryer, this hair dryer will give you straighter, smoother and shinier hair in less than half the time ! It has 3 heat settings –  High, Medium,Cool and ceramic coating for even heat distribution. Since the One – Step hair dryer is coated with IONIC  Technology, the hair dries faster and with less damage.

As I stated above, I have curly coarse hair that doesn’t always cooperate with me. With this powerful hair dryer I was able to achieve the look below in about 25- 30 minutes. Besides the fact that my hair needs a GOOD trim, I would say I didn’t do too bad for my first time using the Revlon One – Step hair dryer!

      I honestly did NOT expect the results I got. I am in love with it. Having course , curly AND frizzy hair I got used to having 1-2 hour blow out sessions just to get the frizz out and curls straight so obviously I was so happy to be done in a half hour !! It dried my hair fully !! That , I did not expect at all. How was your experience with it ?

    Ok you’re gonna laugh at me, I’ve totally been wanting to get one because I DON’T KNOW HOW TO BLOW DRY MY HAIR! So I end up just using a straightener, which is nice but no volume. I need volume. And I came across your post. I am going to get one, because of this, I didn’t know where to start or what brand or what one to buy. Thank you for the review, your hair looks great!!
