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.

I have VERY thick and long hair - it's too heavy for scrunchies to hold a ponytail (it's also wavy/curly) so I was very hesitant about a hot brush actually working. I bought the double shot to give it a try and it is amazing! Highly recommend.
After 1 year
Rena from Milwaukee
I love how easy & quick it is to refresh my hair every morning without having to wash it, just dry shampoo. After using this daily, for one year, my hair has gotten a lot damage-broken hair, that I have never had before using this . The yellow balls on the tips have almost completely fallen off. Regardless, I still use it every day because it styles it so nice.
I am Obsessed with this dryer!!!!
SunnySideSarah from Bensalem, PA
This dryer brush is life changing! I bought this using my points I had saved up as a little treat for myself and it's the best decision I could have made! I have really thick hair and it dries my hair in 15 Minutes!!! I'm in awe! My hair is shiny and voluminous! The dryer is very light weight and easy to use. Just Try it, you won't be disappointed!

This brush is amazing! I just finished chemo a few months ago and some of my new growth is on the wavy side. This blow dryer brush smooths my hair out for the perfect salon blow out look and makes my hair the softest, shiniest it's ever been! I can use my GHD and a round brush the same way, but I do not get the same result of luscious, smooth, voluminous hair like I do with this dry bar double shot! I would buy over and over again!
Megan from Champaign, IL
I am terrible at blow drying my hair the traditional way, this blow dryer brush has given me the ability to do a salon-level blowout all by myself. Received as a Christmas gift and i seriously love it!
Not worth the money
Shae from New York
My hair feels nicer after using but it takes forever compared to my revlon brush (even on mostly dry hair. )
Smooth Hair with Volume
MoKat from Illinois
I've had this for over a year now and absolutely love it. So does my teen daughter. I have fine, thin hair. She has very thick long hair. We both swear by this. Makes our straight hair smooth, sleek, and frizz free, and helps add a lot of volume at the roots. My daughter took this on a trip this last weekend, leaving me to use our regular T3 hairdryer, and my hair was just sad all weekend. Sometimes I just use this dryer, but if I'm pressed for time, I'll use a regular hairdryer first to "mostly" dry my hair and then finish up with this dryer brush to get the smoothness and sleekness I'm looking for. And I'm not usually a fan of the DryBar brand, but I do love this dryer brush. Works better for me than my previous Revlon one. (This does get really, really hot though)
I swear by this!
Richa from Pasadena, TX
I love this product!! Gives you shiny voluminous hair for days and sooo easy to use! I put some heat protectant in my hair that is about 80% dry and go in with this. I have really thick, coarse hair so it takes me about an hour for my whole head!
DO NOT BUY!!!!
Esta from Tomsriver NJ
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
With in two months it started to breakdown and the inside came apart and just stopped working. Only used this twice a week. This was such a waste of money!!!!
Kara C from Michigan
This tool was wonderful to start, however quickly damaged my hair. The heat settings don't allow for much control and my hair quickly started to break off from the heat damage. The bristles have also melted and bent into the brush making this tool damaging and useless. Disappointed for the cost of this one.
If you havent tried a revlon, you'd probably think it's good
Go for revlon from Miami, fl
Trust me spending the hundred extra dollars isn't worth it especially when it doesn't heat up nearly as much as the Revlon does and it doesn't have as many bristles as the Revlon does which smooth down your hair and prevent it from getting frizzy while blow drying. Completely disappointing I'm returning it tomorrow and returning to my Revlon.
Great Christmas gift!
C.W from Tennessee
My mother in law loved this gift. It helped her so much and is easy to use. Her hair is healthy and a lot more better than the hairdryer she was using.
Transformed my fine hair
FloridaMom from Orlando
I cashed in ALL my Ulta points to get this for free, couldn't justify the price tag when I already have a Dyson AirWrap. I love it so much. Dries my shoulder-length, fine hair quickly and adds body. easy to use and not too loud or heavy.
A Must Have
Aprilmaejunejuly from PA
Don't wait to get ya one of these... Def worth every penny!!
Posh from Texas
When I tell y'all, this brush is the TRUTH! Switched from Revlon to this because the revlon brush was frying my hair and not giving me that volume and amazing look I was going for, tried this baby out this morning and now it is mid day and my hair still looks and feels AMAZING! Was so worth the money! I look forward to purchasing all the drybar products in the near future! Remember ladies " quality over quantity " most importantly, you get what you pay for. ❤️
LOVE LVOE LOVE this device!
Laurabelle from Nashua NH
I went in expecting to buy another, similar priced brand, but the side by side comparison gave Drybar the clear edge. And one home use (with the complimentary hair oil) was worth three times the price!
I am satisfied with this product.
Madi from San Jose CA
First time using it and I have no complaints only compliments. The Oval Blow-Dryer Brush is easy to use; it did not get tangled in my hair and it did amazing job! The blowout improved on my hairs texture it's full and soft. I used to use a blow dryer and rolling brush at the time and that made my wrists hurt. I am satisfied with this product.
Better then revlon
Jairo p from Maryland
I got this right after I fallow in love with revlon I need something just like that but without causing the serious damage that revlon did to my hair , however this still damage ur Jaír but not as bad , I am now thinking on getting dyson brush witch cost 4 times more then this but it claims to leave healthy shine hair witch for me is important !!! I want a device that make my hair look espectacular but that leave my hair looking healthy after I shower and clean the hair !!!
Curly hair time saver, smooth hair, less damage!
𝚓𝚘 𝚜𝚎𝚕𝚕 𝙴 from 𝙿𝚒𝚗𝚘𝚕𝚎, 𝚌𝚊
Hair washing day saver! Even when you are short on time but want beautiful hair, this tool takes me there! And while my hair is not coarse, I have a ton of hair and it is puffy and almost worthless. This has been a tool long awaited for me. Highly recommend!
Shocked at results
Laura from Austin, TX
I have been told by many hair dressers that my hair is challenging to blow out. I always feel bad because they are clearly struggling to blow out my hair! It's very curly at the root - I am part Italian and have that thick stubborn curl that just doesn't want to budge. I've never bothered with blowing out my own hair because it takes forever and also never looks good (poofy, frizzy). So of course I thought no way this tool would blow out my hair. I bought it thinking worst case scenario I have to return it and go back to subjecting my hair to the extreme heat of hot tools (my hair is not cute when left natural). Y'all…I've never been this shocked. Not only did it actually blow my hair straight and smooth, it only took me about 25 min (I have thick hair and had to do it in layers). And also somehow my hair was shiny?? I don't understand this magic but I'm not complaining. I usually dread wash day because the idea of "doing" my hair was ughh but now I'm actually excited for it!! Seriously, this tool is life changing. My only regret is that I don't have a pic of what my hair used to look like with a normal blow dry so I could compare :/
Hate this thing
Red from Providence RI
Do you like to feel like your having a heat stroke while taking 8 times longer to dry your hair?!?! Then this is for you!! You can't just go from damp hair or else it will take 20 times as long so you have to basically dry your hair 80 percent with a blow dryer and THEN use it and THEN probably a straightener or other styling tool because it SUCKS and I'm bitter it was expensive.
Surprise! It Worked!
Amanda from Philly
I purchased the double shot with a healthy amount of skepticism, fully expecting to return it. However I was pleasantly surprised that it worked and was relatively quick for my hair. I have THICCCK hair with an all over the place curl/wave pattern which normally is a challenge even for professionals to blow-out (I normally sit an hour at a blow out bar) Is the result salon smooth? No, but I also don't have to use an iron to tame a lion's mane poof and frizz like I would if I were to try to blow it out with a regular hair dryer and round bush.
African American curly hair and I love it
Adia from FL
The product does not cut down on blow dry time for me, but the results are way better than your typical blow dryer. I have minimal hair loss and it does not rip my hair out whatsoever. I almost don't even need to straighten it after, but I still do. Only thing it doesn't do is curl the ends.
Less time, less damage, and gorgeous result
j05ely from SF Bay Area
Ok, my hair is frizzzzzzy and curly. This was exactly what I was looking for… eliminating blow drying and then flat ironing, leaving my hair soft and with volume. Takes a little practice to do it on yourself, but I absolutely recommend it!
I love this product.
Amanda from Macon, GA
It makes my morning less hectic. Easy to use and drys hair fast
