My Hairstylist Sister Convinced Me That Revlon's One-Step Hair Dryer Brush Is Actually Worth the Hype
There are a lot of different hair tools and products out there—and definitely too many to know what's actually worth the money. If you've been on the fence about Revlon's One-Step Hair Dryer Brush, you're not alone. Even with the jaw-dropping amount of online reviews and endless praise from my friends and coworkers, I still wasn't sure it was something I really needed.
I was hesitant for two reasons: One, I assumed it wouldn't work on my thick, coarse hair, and two, I wasn't sure if it would style my hair to the same level of satisfaction as my usual trio of hot tools (blow dryer, straightener, and curling iron).
Luckily, I have my sister, who's been a professional hairstylist for five years and my personal hairdresser my whole life. She insisted I give it a try. I am very glad she did. Now my only regret is that I've waited so long to get one.

The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Brush won me over with its ability to streamline my drying and styling process without skimping on the quality of the finished look. Tip: Before I use the hair dryer and styler, I apply this all-in-one treatment spray as a heat protectant, as well as a leave-in conditioner. I let my hair air dry while I do my makeup, which takes about 10 minutes. I do this because my hair holds a lot of moisture, and I don't want to use the tool on extremely wet hair.
The brush is also extremely easy to use, and I got the hang of it right away. I was fully expecting my first time to be a learning experience, but it's so much simpler than juggling a hair dryer and round brush at once. I was so excited about the results, I sent a video to my sister and thanked her for giving me the nudge I needed. The ends were slightly curled in, my curtain bangs were full and bouncy, and my hair looked effortlessly voluminous.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush
To buy: from $40 (was $60); amazon.com.
Shoppers with a wide variety of hair lengths, textures, and thickness say it's a game changer in their hair drying and styling routines. While there are a number of shoppers who use the dryer brush on their straight and wavy locks, there are also many reviewers who comment on its excellent functionality on naturally curly hair.
One Amazon shopper said, "I don't have hairstyling experience, neither have I blow dried my hair, and my hair looks like I went to the hair salon. Like many people, I read the comments before buying. However after trying it, the comments honestly don't give this product enough justice. I have curly hair and I've seen professionals mess up when blow drying my hair, but with this product I was shocked!" She also included before and after photos in her review so you can take a look at her outstanding results.
Many reviewers, including busy moms and businesswomen, rave about the time-saving benefits of this hot air brush. It takes anywhere from five to 25 minutes to achieve desired results for different types of hair.
"Not big into leaving reviews but this blow dryer deserves my post, and hopefully I can help a busy mom out there find the one styling tool she can live with. I was so nervous about using this dryer on my frizzy curls but I was soooo pleasantly surprised. The blow dry time for my curls went from 35-40 mins to about 20," one busy mom wrote. "Oh, and we've used this on a 4-year-old with thin, wavy hair and on a 6-year-old with thick, coarse frizzy curls and both had great drying time and results."
With over 117,000 five-star reviews and counting, both Amazon customers and I can vouch for the fact that the Revlon Hair Dryer and Volumizer is the quickest and easiest way to achieve gorgeously dried and styled hair.
