Most Helpful Positive Review Never using a flat iroN again
I just bought this after reading all the great reviews everywhere and watching utubers use it. Looks just like when I get my hair cut and they blow dry it with a round brush which I tried and cant do myself. This really grips the hair gently. The oval shape is absolutely great to get volume just where you need it. It was so fast to use even for my first try I love how it's just one step and done. I've been looking for something that would style my hair like this for 15+ years and now it exists thank you revlon! I will never straighten my hair again I'm not into that flat look anymore. Hairs full of body and volume and straight where it needs to be. AMAZING! Def must buy
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointing product
I have very thick long Asian hair. For the past 10 years, I've had to use 2 blow dryers in one hand and a brush in the other to dry my hair. If I divide my hair into sections, this technique would take me 15-20 minutes. After reading all the great reviews, I was extremely excited to try this product. I noticed the biggest complaints about this product from other reviewers are that the item is too big/heavy and too loud. This was my experience:
I guess having to use two blow dryers for 10 years, I don't find this product loud or big/heavy. In fact, I compared this product to one of my blow dryer and it's not any more loud than a normal blow dryer. I'm extremely disappointed with the low voltage and option selections of this product. There are only 2 Power Options: Low and High. Remember when you use the hotel's little blow dryers and your only options are High/Low? And when you use it on High, it shuts down in 4 minutes? And it smells like the blow dryer is burning? This is what I feel this product is like. It gives off a "burnt" smell after using it over 5 minutes but it didn't shut down on me. Because air ventilation is around the brush, the hot air blows into your face and neck. This can get really hot and uncomfortable. I think it'd be a better product if air is only blown in one direction so you can have it away from your face, sorta like the paddle brush Revlon blow dryer. I also had to use 2 hands to curl my hair due to the large thick handle. With just one hand, it's difficult to turn the brush and curl your hair. If you're only wanting to brush it one direction and straight down, then it's not so difficult.
In the end, I had to use one blow dryer in one hand AND this product in the other. I think I'd rather go back to my old technique because this product doesn't dry my hair any quicker nor does it give it any shine. For these reasons, this product is gong back to the store. :-(
I would recommend this product if you have medium to long THIN hair.

Not Wow, But Has Good Benefit
UltaMaven from PA
I have waist length, fine, straight hair (and lots of it) and I did not find this to shorten drying time, even when I air dried partially first. What it DOES do, for me, is make it easier to maneuver all my hair by not having to use two hands all the time. Also, the larger handle is better ergonomically for my slightly arthritic hands. Overall a decent product. I dinged it one star for touting its shortened drying time and using the term "volumizing" when it did not do either for me.
Not for all hair
JABarker from Skincare Lover, OH
If you have thick or long hair this will be perfect. If your hair is short or fine, it might help a little, but you might as well just blow dry it the old fashion away as this is big. I wish they offered a smaller brush, because it's not a bad hair tool, and I'm sure it would a smaller would be great for my shorter, almost shoulder length hair. Also, the cool feature isn't as cool as I'd hoped it would be. Compared to some others, the price is right.
Originally I bought this as a gift
Mo from Hi
My mom and I have similar hair patterns. We have lots of hair, very thick, textured and we keep it pretty long. My mom has more of a wavy pattern, where is my hair is actually curly. We don't like straightening out hair often, because of how difficult it is, but I would say I straighten and style with heat on more of a regular basis then my mom does.
I got this as a gift for her because she prefers a blowout hair style over a hair iron styling. However when she does her hair the normal round brush-blow dryer way.. it takes her forever! I thought this tool would be easier on her arms and make style time go faster. And it turns out she loved it! She loved it so much that she bought one for me, because I needed it! I honestly love it. I usually iron my hair straight cuz it's just easier, but it makes my hair so flat that I have to use products to get back my volume. I never saw myself blowing out my own hair because of how much time and how tiring and hot and sweaty i can get by the time I'm done. Just not cute. But this tool makes it so easy! I highly recommend.. only thing is it does feel like a drugstore tool, a few of my bristles came off while styling.. but I have very difficult hair to handle. Because the colors aren't cute I was looking at other versions on this tool, but in the end I just decided that thing one has such good reviews I would try it. It doesn't get my hair as straight as I want it but I just go back with the iron to do touch ups. Other the. That it's a great product!

I don't review often, but this dryer is a game changer! First off, I've never been good at drying my hair with a round brush. I've always rough dried and then used a straightener. My only regret is not discovering this sooner! No more straightener for me. This has been the only dryer/ styler I've used since getting it. I'm obsessed. My hair looks better and much healthier!!! I use this after my hair has air dried for about 45 mins or so, and it just works!!!!
Worked great until it stopped
Sarah from AR
I've had this brush and used it 2-3 times a week for about 6 months now. I've kept it clean and not let a ton of hair/product get wrapped on the brush head. I noticed that it sounded like it wasn't blowing as hard even when I had it on the high setting. Fast forward to today when I used it and it started making a clicking sound when I slightly rotated it and it smelled like something plastic was burning. I immediately unplugged it and have since thrown it in the trash. I'll be purchasing something from a different brand that might last longer.
Handy and easy to operate

Quick dryer, detangler
Britt from MO
I have thick, naturally curly hair (3C). After just one use with this hair dryer the soft bristles started fraying out and the hard bristles started to break off. So I'm guessing this is not made for anyone with actual texture. I will say, this concept is amazing and this is the only hair dryer to smooth my hair enough to straighten it.
Mt from Cali
Honestly, this was the perfect purchase! For me as a busy mom who still wants to get "ready"Very time efficient and easy to use! Not the most compact item you'll store under the sink or the closet, more on the bulky side. Leaves your hair soft, just need a great oil to finish off. I'd recommend , that's why I'm actually taking the time to write this review!
Tonya from Burlington NC
Loved the results!! Cuts my styling time in half. I've told everyone at my job that it's a must have!!
Thicker hair density beware
Veve from Los feliz
Everything was fine and dandy and I was having a good time using this product but then all of a sudden the top part of the barrel just decided to snag onto a generous chunk of hair and it was over from there. Almost made me emotional.
I would buy this product again!
Teresa from Kentucky
Yes. It does get on natural curly hair!
I did not expect to love this tool as much as I do.

I did not expect to love this tool as much as I do. My hair is thin and shoulder length
Anonymous from Tupelo MS
Love this! Second one we've purchased in 3 years. Yes used it almost everyday and had to buy another one. Yes it lasted 3 years. Excellent lasting quality! A little noisy, but tolerable. I've read many reviews on similar products about the noise - it is not the shrill high pitch noise reported on those products. The revlon brand is a dull tolerable sound. Leaves your hair full shiny and so healthy looking!
Sunnygirl110 from Bel air md
This dryer has changed my daily routine for the better! My hair is so shiny smooth that there is no need for a straightener. Love it!

I use this brush when my hair is mostly dry after showering & it leaves my hair looking amazing
Brush bristles on black dryer are different from green dryer
TIna W from Oak Park
I love this product, however, I first purchased the black one and it worked so well that I decided to have a backup; so I ordered the mint colored dryer. The mint green version has brush bristles that are way too soft for my hair and don't grip the hair as well as the black dryer option. I know sounds strange, but the black option really works well with curly hair, the brush bristles are stiffer which is great if you want to straighten and smooth your hair with the right amount of volume. I don't recommend the mint dryer.

Can be a nice gift.
Kenny E from Louisville
Used this on my daughter's hair (mostly straight, not course) and worked great. My hair has more texture and I found my hair to be very frizzy near the roots. I can't decide if I will be keeping this or not.
Easy to use
Amanda from Utah
It dried my hair quicker than I expected. It was very easy to use and gave me a great blowout, lasted almost 3 days
Not for thin/flat hair :(
Lauren from Kansas City
I have thin/flat hair, I tried about every technique on how to use this for volume and it just didn't work for me :( maybe I missed something but all it did was curl my ends which honestly I could just do easier with my straightener. I think this is more for people with thick hair.
Add it to your cart....NOW!
Halley R from Illinois
Go buy this now! Genuinely, my life has changed....I normally put my hair in a pony tail or braid it in the back because my hair is so frizzy and wavy that it's hard for me do much with it unless I blow dry it, then straighten it which I'm really really bad at blow drying my hair. I have mid length, thin, wavy & frizzy blonde hair and this product is a complete game changer!! My hair looks like I just left the salon every day and now I actually enjoy doing my hair in the morning because the results are so amazing! Forget the other options and go buy this product now! You won't regret it. P.S. I'm not a big reviewer but I couldn't wait to add a review!
