The REVAir is a 2-in 1 Hairdryer and hair straightener. It’s supposed to work on every hair type from straight to super kinky coily hair. And save you a whole lot of time in the drying and straightening process.
RevAir launched its one of a kind hairdryer in 2018. Apart from detangling your hair prior to use, you don’t need to use any kind of brushes while drying your hair.
In this article, we will discuss basic design features, maintenance and performance, and what professionals think.
Does it do all it claims? Is it worth the money? See what conclusion we came to.
What is RevAir?
RevAir is a hairdryer but not a blow dryer since the hair is dried by suctioning the hair, similar to a vacuum.
But more than just drying your hair, the suction action straightens your hair as well. Making less work of dry with brushes or straightening with flat irons
Rev means reverse airflow. The reverse airflow pulls air down the hair shaft closing the cuticle of the hair.
The benefits of sealing your hair’s cuticle in this manner are: straighter and less frizzy puffy hair than with traditional blow drying.
RevAir does NOT use IONIC technology to accomplish their goal of straightening and smoothing the hair.
“It is RevAir’s opinion, based on our testing, that utilizing any additional technology (tourmaline, ceramic, or ionic) will not improve the results or benefit hair health.”
How does the RevAir work?
Standard RevAir Features
The hose and wand weigh 1.25 lbs. (the base weighs 6.5lbs) Some people say it’s a little heavy for them for long periods.
However, many professionals hairdressers find it easier on the wrist and back since you don’t have to use it in a bending motion and a brush. Great for carpal tunnel!
Smart sensors and Auto shutoff prevent you from introducing too much hair into the wand, overheating, heat damage, and hair clogging.
