We are always trying to look for ways to save more of our precious time. ”Time is money”, so the saying goes.
have been debating whether or not this Revlon One-step hair dryer and styler is for you? Are you ready to pitch your old regular hair dryer?
Before you do anything crazy, I want to help you make an informed decision.
In this post, we are going to talk about what you can realistically expect from the Revlon one step hair dryer. What type of hair it’s most useful for. As well how to make the most of the heat settings.
What is the Revlon one-step dryer and volumizer?
First things first, the word ”hair dryer” is deceptive. This is, in reality a hot air brush.
Revlon has produced 3 different styles of hot air brushes. (one-step dryers) I love my hot air brush; it's a lifesaver. However, you need to know what it can actually do. How, to use it, and how to get the most from it.
Another reason for the name “dryer” is deceiving is it's not really intended for wet hair. It's advertising suggests that due to the low wattage you can use it near the scalp without the risk of burn.
Ideally, you should only use the Revlon one-step dryer on damp hair. You’ll want to towel dry before you start. The best and fastest way to do this,is with a microfiber towel. You don't want to roughly dry the hair with the towel; it's better to wrap up your hair like a movie star for a few minutes while you ready yourself.
The hair is at its most fragile state when it's wet. So you need to treat your hair gently while wet. Also, it's best to brush and detangle your hair before you even shower, so that you will not be doing this with your Revlon one step dyer.

Let me illustrate the unique oval shape, the round brush pictured below is 2”. The larger the round brush the less curl pattern you will get. As its name suggests it’s for giving you lift at the scalp (volume) and a slight bend to the rest of the hair. If you are looking for something that will give more curl pattern. You may prefer to try round hot air brush
Just as different brushes give you different results. The same Is true with hot air brushes.
As warning on over brushing. Brushing causes friction on hair, leading to cuticle damage and breakage, which makes hair lusterless and frizzy. Brush your hair minimally (only to detangle or style) -CNN
How to use the heat settings
There are several factors to keep in mind
Remember always to use a heat protection product
Damp hair drying is preferred over drying wet hair.
Choose the lowest heat setting possible to achieve results.
Cool (this is like the cool shot button on your regular hair dryer) After you have smoothed out the hair and given it some shape set the shape and close the cuticle with the cold air setting.
The Revlon one-step dryer and volumizer lightweight, compact design make it an ideal traveling companion. I Travel all the time with my Hot Air Brush Dryer instead of a regular hair dryer.
And The occasional full blowout for your hair shouldn't be a problem. Precaution should be taken in blow drying wet hair. Try to use it on damp hair only. Long-term damage results from treating wet hair harshly by the pulling motion of the brush and high heat settings. Additionally, Avoid over brushing.
I really hope you enjoy using your new favorite one-step dryer. And that you understand more fully what it's potential really is.
