Hello Beautiful people! Today I review a product which took over every market the day it was released; Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler.
But did it take over the hearts of its users? Some have called it a game-changer. Others have placed it in the list of the mediocre. I’ll let you know exactly how I experienced it.
What is the product?
The appliance is basically a 2-in-1 styler; it’s a paddle brush with air holes for drying. So it aims to reduce the styling time to half of what it takes with a regular hair dryer and a brush in the other hand. The paddle is lightweight, as promised. This makes it very easy to use. You can come out of the shower, towel dry your hair, and get right into it.
Appropriate heat settings?
The setting is appreciable. There are two modes for hot drying; High and Low and there is a Cool option for weak and thin hair. But what I experienced was that the high mode was really hot and the heat made me uncomfortable. What I suggest is that you keep the styler at a distance from your hair to dry it out and then put the dryer on low and continue brushing your hair at low setting. This gives a very smooth effect.

Is Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler faster than other dryers?
I have light hair and I saved A LOT of time. That’s because I didn’t have to hold a dryer and then brush separately. The compact structure allowed me to use it just like a brush. For people with thick/curly hair, time is saved if you directly use the high heat mode. The low and cool settings take as much time as old-school dryers.
Tips for using Revlong One Step Styler
- You may use the appliance on wet or dry hair. We personally prefer towel-dried hair for best results.
- Plug in the appliance in an 1100 watt/120 V power supply. It only works at 120V so don’t go above that. Trust us.
- Use a high setting for thin hair and low setting for thick hair.
- Separate hair into sections for quick drying ESPECIALLY if you have thick hair. Makes the work much easier.
- Start from the top and brush the hair downwards.
- Repeat brushing until hair is dried and smooth.
- Do the same for all sections.

Overall Review of Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler
You must have guessed by now that I really enjoyed using the styler. But if you have thick hair and want to use the high mode throughout your hair, be careful with the heat. I think you must try this at least once because if you like it, it’s a lifesaver. Not literally but you get it.
