I am truly my best self when having a good hair day. While my skin can be temperamental and my makeup skills mediocre, I've always done well in the hair styling arena, largely thanks to my treasured Revlon hot air brush.
A two-in-one hairdryer and styler, this best-selling beauty tool is my secret to good hair — and right now, it's 28 per cent off on Amazon Canada. To learn why the device has racked up nearly 46,000 reviews on Amazon and earned my seal of approval, scroll below.
My rating: 4/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amazon shoppers: 4.5 stars, 46,000 reviews.
Amazon reviewers call it a "game-changer" and say it leaves hair "smooth and very soft."
However, some call the handle "uncomfortably thick."
What does the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush do?
The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush combines the power of a hairdryer with a unique oval brush design to dry, smooth and style your hair in a single motion.
The hot air brush rounds the edges of your hair while creating volume at the root for full-bodied, salon-quality blowouts at home.
It's designed with tufted bristles to detangle your strands and has two heat and speed options and a cooling option to set your style.
Why I give it five stars
I have been a loyal fan of the Revlon hot air brush for more than a year and I can honestly say it remains one of my favourite beauty buys.
Thanks to the Revlon brush, I can now go from just-washed hair to a silky, professional-quality blowout in under 20 minutes, a feat I could not previously dream of.
I find it works best when I dry my hair in layers and use the lowest heat setting. Because, as a word of caution, I once used the highest setting in a closed-door bathroom, and when I opened the door, the steam set off my smoke alarm (all was fine).
I am such a devout fan of the hot air brush that I have not only convinced my mom and sister to get one, but several of my friends now own the top-rated beauty tool.
Why 46,000 people love it
Earning more than 32,700 five-star reviews, Amazon shoppers say the Revlon hot air brush will do nothing short of "change [your] life."
"This thing [is] a miracle," writes one reviewer. It's "revolutionary for me."
It's "a game-changer," echos a second shopper. It gives you "smooth and very soft" hair with minimal effort and shaves off "about 30 minutes" of getting-ready time in the morning.
"I have very intense curly hair," writes a third shopper who says their hair is akin to a "Cabbage Patch doll" meets "Sideshow Bob." This tool "blew my mind;" my hair went from wet to dry, straight and soft in less than 20 minutes. "Don't tell my husband," but doing my hair and having these results "almost made me happier" than the "day we got married!"
While the vast majority of reviews say the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush is "easy to use" and "efficient," some Amazon shoppers note the styling tool is heavy and say the handle is "uncomfortably thick."
It's difficult for "smaller hands to maneuver," writes one shopper.
