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.

KTO from Ventura,Ca
I am very happy about my purchase and my hair has never been as smooth and shiny. It is easy to use and works as fast as a regular hair dryer, even though my hair holds a lot of moisture. My second day hair is just as nice as the first day. We have had even had foggy weather in the morning and my hair still remained smooth which was surprising. I would highly recommend this product.
Great with Precautions
WarTeacher from Alabama
It definitely gets HOT! You really need to make sure you've got some heat protection on your hair. Also, Revlon will replace the product if it messes up. I sent my first one back because it started smoking and they sent me a new one within a month.
Purchasing More For Gifts
GiGi from Pace, FL
I have never been able to use a brush and a blow dryer to style my hair. This blow dryer dried my hair quicker than I expected and I was able to style my hair straight and smooth without using a flat iron. So glad a friend told me about this. It didn't take as long to style as I expected. Love this product! I'm buying these as gifts for friends!!
DO NOT BUY!!
Liz from Philadelphia PA
I started using this about a year ago and it is so bad for your hair. I have noticed my hair has begun to break all over and has not been growing like it used to. I talked to my hairdresser about it and she begged me to stop using it because it is so bad for you hair. It gets way too hot causing so much hair breakage I have to clean my brush constantly because of all my hair that breaks off in it. Save your money and invest in a better brush.
Buy this ASAP! Best purchase ever!
Abby from Philadelphia. PA
This hair dryer was one of the best purchases that I've ever made. I purchased this product in early June of 2021 and use it all the time. I like that it is super easy to use by just brushing my hair and doesn't make me feel overwhelmed. This dries my hair so quickly and is such a time saver for when I am getting ready. Something else that I also really appreciated about this product was that it's also super convenient. It does the job of doing two things, Drying hair and also brushing. Your hair feels amazing after using this because it completely dries your full head and styles your hair too just as a hair salon would. However, something that does bring down the value of this product is how loud it can be and that it gets heavy after a while. When you're drying your hair and it's right next to your ears can be irritating. Although it can feel heavy after holding it for some time it's still 100% better than having to use both a hairbrush and dryer! This hair dryer is fantastic and that little con cannot overshadow this product! I recommend that everyone should get this if they're able to!
Way too hot and damages hair
Julie from Peoria, Illinois
I've tried to use this off and on for a couple years and it seems like a great idea at first. It gets so hot I can't touch it and the hair is so hot it burns to touch it. Definitely not a recommendation from my experience.
Thick to thin hair
Kelli from SC
I washed my hair today and it feels like there is no hair there. 😪😪. I had very thick hair before
Worked great at first
Meredith from Columbus
I've had this for almost a year and a half now, and for the first year worked flawlessly. Now it overheats super fast to where it's almost unusable. Also, it does not dry my hair as fast as it once did. Lost quite a few bristles along the way as well. I will probably buy another brands next.
easy to use!!!
Summer from Houston, TX
I have never figured out how to blow dry my hair like I just came out of a salon. i never really likesdusing flat irons because I have really thin and fine hair. But this one is a game changer! So easy to use and adds volume to my hair! It's like you just came out of the salon.
Ulta regular from Florida
Had one year and is now dead because it overheated. Liked it fine before that. Dried my hair quickly and with little damage. Going back now to a round brush and blow dryer because these are too expensive to buy every year.
burned from Freehold NJ
I can't believe how quickly the bristles fell out. It gets really hot. While the brush was plugged in and I was drying my hair, it started smoking, got really hot and burned my hand and forehead From the start it also dries out and burns my hair only after a few times of using it.
purchases Mar h 2020
no good from Richmond
stopped working already
Almost salon quality!
ReNay from Arlington
Love this tool, have had for 2 years to the month till it died. (just ordered a 2nd one)
I have mixed textures of curly hair.
(added bumble leave in spray to help dry& protect)
I had mid back length of hair and this tool was helpful, was able to dry & style in 40 minutes. Recently cut shoulder length and can dry and style in 15- 20 minutes. I love this tool and have bought as gifts.
Downside, it does get really hot if you use on high for more than 12 minutes. I use gloves if I'm in a rush and need to dry in high. (gloves like the ones that come with the rods)
Stopped working after a little over a year
SuzieQ from Texas
I bought this about a year and a half ago, and initially, I loved it. It did an excellent job on my hair. I would typically have to blow dry and flat iron to get my naturally curly hair straight. I missed the volume after I would flat iron. This was definitely the solution for that. I haven't had to use a flat iron since I started using it. However, it started getting insanely hot and would just randomly power down when on high. It's quit working, and I only used it about twice a week. I have had regular hair dryers last for years, so this is disappointing that it only lasts about a year before it stops working.
Pros & Cons!
Sam from Illinois
I've had this for about 8 months now when it works it works great complete lifesaver. Huge downside is it over heats big time. It gets so HOT I can't even hold it. May have to upgrade to drybar.
Great hair styler.
Liberry Lady from Savannah, GA
I use after air drying my medium bob. It smooths and finishes my style.
Waste of Money
Lola from New York
If I could rate this 0 stars I would. This is the biggest waste of money I've ever spent. It is huge , can't wrap around my hair , rips my hair out and takes forever to dry it. I would just use a regular blow dryer and a brush
Diva from Houston, TX
had it less than a year & didnt use it much & it already died. got super super HOT after it went out.
RosaQ from San Diego Ca
I loved this product I even recommended it to family I purchased as gifts for a few people however I bought this brush in January of 2021 and it is august of 2021 and it caught 🔥 as I was using it
Callie from Virginia
This is my staple to fix my hair its really easy to use and doesn't damage 10/10 recommended
JDR from Carrollwood
This is the best! Every time I use this, my hair looks like I just got out of the salon. I just wish they have this in a smaller size so it's easy to take them during trips. It is quite heavy but the result is perfect!
RosaQ from San Diego
I loved this product I used it for about 8 months and it made a weird noise and literally caught on actualflames
Love it when it works
Krista from Colorado
Love the hot brush, hate that I'm on brush #2 in less than a year.
1st one stopped blowing air, but heats up after 6 months of every other/every third day use.
2nd one stopped heating after less than a month.
You have to buy this!!
Jo from USA
This is so amazing! Dries my hair quickly & without the frizz. It styles it so well. It gave me Jennifer Anniston in the 90s vibes. Love this!!
DONT use this to dry your hair!
minx from usa
I loved this, until I saw the breakage and split ends it has caused. It can safely be used to style hair but not to dry it! I'm trying to nurse my hair back to health..
