Most Helpful Positive Review This works great for me and my hair!
I was pleasantly surprised how well this tool worked for me! I had read some reviews by people who absolutely hated it. However it had more positive reviews than many other blowout brushes from cheaper brands. I think part of the reason it works so well for me is because I have very fine hairs. I have a lot of hair but it is very fine. I do have permed hair, but my hair is naturally super straight. So my hair likes to be straight and having my hair damaged a bit helped with volume. The main issues others complained about was not being able to actually dry their hair in a timely manner. You do have to rough dry your hair before using the brush for best results. Or let your hair air dry for a time. This allowed for the brush to blow dry the rest of the way while straightening and adding the volume to your roots. If your roots or ends dry faster than the rest you can always add moisture back in. It won't hurt anything. I find that the better I rough dry my hair the better my blowout turns out. It doesn't frizz up my hair too badly. And I use products in my hair to combat that. Most stylist will use something to help frizz. My stylist used a smoothing cream. I use Living Proof thickening cream and their root lift spray. I like the way it works with my hair. It did take me a few different sessions to really get the hang of it, so don't be afraid to try it a few times and do different things to it to see wha works. The third tome I did it it was pretty close to how I came out looking from the salon! Do those who say it does not work for them, maybe it's their hair type, or maybe they didn't rough dry their hair enough. The people who didn't like it don't seem to want to use it in the exact way it's meant to be used. But most of the blowout dryer brushes are not meant to be used on soaking wet or only towel dried hair. So if you want to try this brush, I say go for it. It is worth the money if you figure out how to use it.
Most Helpful Critical Review disappointing
I was so excited to receive this product. I'm a die hard fan of drybar. I adore their curling wand and their hair products are next to none. I heard all kinds of horror stories about the revlon curling brush, but when I saw that drybar made their own I felt pretty comfortable using it.
I'm extremely disappointed. If you are considering purchasing this, here is the biggest warning i can give you: DESPITE THE DESCRIPTION SAYING OTHERWISE, THERE ARE NO REAL HEAT SETTINGS.
There are three settings on this thing: "cool, medium, hot". The "cool" is cold. The "hot" is hot. The medium is actually just the hot setting, with the air not blowing as hard. Most hair dryers have two settings. One that contains "cool, medium, hot" and another that controls the "speed" of the air. This product does NOT have this. It takes forever to dry my hair on the "medium" setting because the air is so slow, but the "hot" setting fries my hair and makes it frizzy. It does provide some extra volume, but causes it a lot of frizz around my roots so I'm not sure it's worth it. Especially considering how expensive it is.

Best Product I Own + Tip!
Sassy hair from Alabama
I have always had frizzy hair. My hair is has waves & would never go straight. You will have model blow out hair every time you this & compliments everyday! TIP- buy a letter opener (plastic with blade) to clean the hair out. All hair comes out!
Lightweight & easy to use
Stef from TX
I use this after I shower along with the living proof smooth blowout concentrate. It works wonderfully. The blowdryer leaves my hair smooth and voluminous. Looks very pretty. The best thing is that it's so easy to use. It is very lightweight and doesn't tire my arm like regular blowdryers. I love this thing!
Believe the hype!

I don't have to use any other tools, my hair lays so cute and smooth, cuts my styling time in half!

I just cant believe how horrible this was. Especially from DryBar.
Makes My Hair Shine!
Jennifer from Alabama
Love this tool so much! My hair is so shiny and healthy looking after using it. I have the Dyson blow dryer and this beats it, hands down! I am over 40 with shoulder length, highlighted/bleached hair. The double shot barrel is big so it helps with volume but if you're looking for a tool that will curl, this is not it.
EB from NJ
I never write reviews. But we purchased yesterday and my daughter gave herself the best blowout she has ever done on her own! My turn to try today with much thicker hair. It had air fryer about 75% and was kinky and curly. In SEVEN MINUTES, my hair is silky smooth and volume is out of control! I don't even need to straighten it at all! This was the best purchase we have made in a while! Love love LOVE!!!
Where have you been all my life?
Blondie from Milwaukee, WI
If you're considering buying this product, do it! I love it! I dry my hair partially with a regular blow dryer first, then use this for style, volume, & shine. When I don't wash my hair, I use this to refresh my hair. Perfect! I have thin hair and this adds so much volume and bounce! I use the dry bar hair products and love them as well!
Angela from New York
Super easy to use, leaves my hair soft and smooth. Definitely pair it with a smoothing serum and/or heat protectant. If you have long/thick hair I'd recommend letting your hair air/towel dry a little before using though since it takes longer if your hair is soaked.
Best product !
Lexie from Portland, oregon
I love this blow brush its the best!! If you do it right you can curl your hair with it as well it gives you those loose curls almost any girl loves! Than having that sexy straight slick out flow in your hair its super cool ! Ive had it for a week or so and i was playing around and found a way to do it i love it!
Nora from Philadelphia
The Dry Bar Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush is amazing! I bought it without knowing too much about the product and I have nothing but great things to say about it. It is super easy to use and gives a salon-like blow out finish. I've gotten so many compliments on my hair.
I am so happy with this purchase & highly recommend it if you are considering!
The BEST 🙌🏻

I love it!!! Better than my Dyson air wrap!

It really works great cuts my drying time in half. I have long and thick hair. I use with Dry bar shampoo and conditioner to maximize my results. Would definitely recommend it.
Well this is just perfect
DeeElle from NJ
This is the best hairdryer of all time. I am TERRIBLE at blowouts. I have never been able to get the hang of working a round brush with one hand while holding a blowdryer in the other, resulting in flat, frizzy hair in need of a flat iron. I've been using this for 2 weeks and have been so impressed! It's so easy to use (I timed myself and was able to do a decent job in about 7 minutes), gets hot but not TOO hot, and leaves my hair looking almost like I came from a salon. For once, I don't feel like I have to run a flat iron over my hair after drying. And my hair is so soft, too! I cannot recommend this more.
Ep from Ny
This thing is awesome! I suck at normal blow drying but this is easy and my hair comes out great! I have super thick hair but it drys relatively quickly. I do go over it with the regular dryer first to get a good amount of moisture out.
Melissa from 08520
I have no idea how to blowout my hair. My hair is fine and very straight. Pre Covid, Inwould was it the night before work, let it air dry and be ready to go the next morning.
Since working from home started, I throw it in a messy bun all of the time.
I decided to give this a shot to see if it would help me get out of my funk and WOW.
It is quick, works really well & I am getting rid of my regular blowdryer.
It is 100% worth the price if you have straight, thick hair.
Ashley from Traverse City, MI
I absolutely love this product! I was skeptical about price and after receiving it as a gift during the holidays I wish I would've pulled the trigger sooner! This product gives my hair an amazing blow out, working from the very tip of the root. I can't explain how the design does that but it does! I have very thing hair and this tool gives my hair life. I suggest using their hair clips with this product as a dynamic duo. Don't think twice about investing in this ladies, it is built to last and it really works!
I would buy this again
Amy from Texas
I recommend this BUT...
Krissie Tina from Phoenix, AZ
Overall this isn't bad and I do recommend. I have the GHD professional dryer and I use with Olivia Garden Round brushes. I recommend that route because the hair will be smoother - less frizz and shinier. BUT the Drybar does allow you to have volume easier than using a hairdryer + brush so on my lazy days or when I'm in a hurry I will pull this Drybar out but when I have time I will use my GHD w/ OG round brush. Because the dryer is round you lose control of the air flow which kind-of allows frizzy hair at the root. I don't see a way around this bc w/ the GHD I use the attachment to direct the air flow in the direction i want it. But like I said I'm not returning it, I just will smooth out my hair with my GHD curling iron and spray some shine spray in it. I do still recommend this tool, just know it's limits so you're not disappointed.
Colleen from Chicago, IL
I have been having back issues, so I thought this may make it easier to dry my hair, not dealing with the blow dryer and brush separately. I have very curly hair and getting it into the root with high tension is impossible. My hair didn't feel fried but it was no where near silky. The YouTube reviews were misleading, not a good experience for my curly hair for what this costs.
Bye bye straighter!!!
Mh from Charlotte
I can't even say enough great things about this blowout tool. I can finally kiss my straighter goodbye, this is so much healthier, gives so much volume while giving a healthy look. So happy with it
Made to LAST!

Don't buy a cheapie dryer brush! Invest in this and expect it to last!
Jenn from Utah
I have very fine, somewhat thin hair and debated over this dryer for a while before purchasing. I had hope that it would give my limp hair more volume, but worried it would cause my flyaways to stand out more. I finally pulled the trigger and am SO happy with with my choice! It totally delivers in the volume department and hasn't been a problem with flyaways at all...in fact, I think they are even less noticeable after using this dryer.
I have found it best to let my hair air dry as long as possible and the use the brush to dry the roots fully and add volume. On days when I don't have as much time, I use my Buttercup dryer to do an initial dry on my hair until just barely damp and then finish with the brush. Even with fine hair I think it would take quite a while to use the brush to dry fully wet hair.
I ordered online, so I hadn't seen the size of the brush before purchasing. It is larger than I expected, but has turned out to be a great size.
