After many years of evolving my beauty routine, I’ve learned that there are just some traits about yourself that you have to accept — and if you can’t, there are ways (often damaging) of altering them. That’s pretty much the philosophy that comes with dealing with my frizzy hair and its unpredictable curl patterns.
To take back control of the look and feel of my locks, I’ve always depended on heat-powered tools. While this styling approach has proven its Insta-worthy effectiveness, the stress I regularly put my hair through never fails to leave my mind. Not even the combination of sulphate-free shampoo, conditioner and mask can reverse the years worth of damage with my styling routine. To put things into perspective, my typical routine consists of a rough blow-dry and multiple passes through the flat iron. So yeah, not only is it super damaging but its also incredibly time-consuming.

But to help soften the blow (literally) I’ve been praising one fan-favourite styling tool that has made a huge impact on the health of my hair and my life. Proving itself to be the ultimate game-changer is the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush, an Amazon bestseller with more than 18,500 customer reviews.
This two-in-one brush and hairdryer is designed to achieve smooth, salon-quality blowouts at home in one easy step — even on wet hair As someone who has never gotten the hang of blowing out my own hair at home, I find that its unique oval brush design works wonders for detangling hair and creating volume. And while this tool has been released for some time now, it continues to receive non-stop attention from TikTok users thanks to a whopping 94.4 million views under the hashtag #revlonhairdryerbrush that highlight its impressive, instant results.
“I’m fuming I didn’t get it earlier,” captioned one video with more than 680,000 likes.
While a video tutorial from another user says, “TikTok made me buy it,” and walks through the step-by-step process of how she parts and styles her hair with the Revlon Hot Air Brush to create ultimate volume.
The magic behind this brush is its genuine ION generator that allows you to safely dry your hair faster and create static, frizz-free styles. Powered with 1,100 watts to deliver just the right amount of heat, its ceramic coating helps protect hair from over-styling and damage with even-heat distribution that penetrates hair quickly. For ultimate flexibility and customization to get the perfect do, it is also equipped with multiple heat settings.
Not only is it easy to use, but it is said to work on all hair textures.
To get the best results, I recommend parting your hair into sections while your hair is damp and passing each one through the Hot Air Brush until you’ve reached your preferred shape and texture.
