Get simple, beautiful blowouts with one tool: the Hot Tools 24K Gold One Step Volumizer.
I have naturally thick, wavy hair and have always preferred to air dry over using a blow dryer. Every time I'd use a blow dryer, my hair would get so frizzy and fuzzy, no matter what heat protector I used. I've tried multiple times using different brushes and I'd always end up with the same results. I also should mention that I have weak muscles and problems with my nerves so standing for 30-45 minutes to fail at a blow out is nothing but a waste of time. I've been hearing about the hot air brushes from Revlon and John Frieda for over a year and have been wanting one so bad! So this year, I decided to buy myself one for my birthday!
Sadly, my local Ulta was sold out of the Revlon One-Step Volumizer and obviously didn't carry the John Frieda Volume Shine. I didn't want to wait to order either so I started looking at the Bed Head Blow Out Freak. It's the same price as the one by Revlon and seemed pretty similar. However, I felt unsure so I asked for help. I'm so glad I did, I was lead to the hot air brushes and was enthusiastically recommended either the Revlon or this one. As I said, they were sold out of the former, so I decided to get the latter. It was about $15 more, which kind of set me off from it. But with the "real talk" the sales woman had with me, she had me sold.
I LOVE this tool. I can easily and confidently create a smooth blow out with so pain or strain!
I purchased this cautiously optimistic from the hundreds of reviews I read and online YouTube videos I watched. I was hoping that this could be that magic tool to finally calm my wavy, frizzy hair. This arrived today and here's my experience. First my hair type is blonde, shoulder-length, frizzy and wavy and is colored every 8-12 weeks. I used DreamCoat spray and Caviar blowout creme to help with the frizz and was hopeful this combination in addition to this styling dryer would give me the straight, frizz-free results so many others had.
I sectioned my hair and after a couple of minutes I noticed how unbelievably hot this dryer gets. This dryer is more of an oval shape than the circular shape I expected. I had this set on the highest setting to get the straight results I wanted. This dryer has hot air blowing fiercely all over the barrel. My bathroom is small and doesn't have windows and I had to have the door open and a fan on in addition to the air conditioning it became that hot. The hot air blew against my face when drying the sides of my hair and it was uncomfortable. I stopped partway through just to be able to cool down. Also, this dryer is huge, almost too big. My hair is shoulder length and this dryer felt too large for my hair. It was difficult to get to the roots of my hair because this dryer was that large. It is also very uncomfortable to hold for long period of time. I noticed when I set it down after a few minutes to answer a text, my hand was numb from holding it and it was difficult to move my fingers to text my daughter back. That feeling eventually went away. As a result, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who has hand or wrist issues. It was also difficult for me to dry the back of my hair because this dryer was so large and I had trouble due to its size getting close enough to the roots in the back of my head and after I finished I realized there were parts still not dry. I still had to go over my hair with my straightener.
Based on the reviews, I was hoping to get six months of use out of this, max, before it died (fyi—the reviews for just about every blow dry brush say the same thing). I've had it for two years now! A few months ago, it did become finicky with outlets that don't have the built-in test/reset mechanism, but otherwise it works just as well as the day I got it. I use it multiple times per week, normally just for my bangs, but also sometimes for my whole head. I have very thick, waist-length hair, and this thing has no problem as long as I let my hair air dry long enough beforehand. And it can do my whole head in ten minutes! It definitely does damage my hair just as much as an iron, but no worse. My only complaint is that unlike an iron, it leaves my hair frizzy for a day or two (and no, serums/oils do not help), but my hair is super shiny and smooth by day three. I've stopped using irons almost entirely in favor of this thing because it's just so dang convenient.
It works great but after 2 yewrs the gold part started heating up towards the handle.
Worked great, loved the ease of using this dryer brush and the results… until the on/off switch broke less than a year after purchase. Only used it maybe once a week. Sadly, very cheaply made.
Absolutely love the convenience of this tool, as it cut my dry + straighten process for my long, thick hair in half. Always left my hair shiny and voluminous, and never damaged it. Used it regularly for 3 years until the bristles started falling out. If it were a more expensive tool I'd be frustrated, but for the price I'm willing to buy another. I will try the detachable version next, as it'll be easier to fit in a carry on bag and can double as a standard blow dryer to reach my roots easier (which the brush never quite did). Overall happy with this item, just bummed that it's not built to last but nothing is anymore. Also recommend this slightly more expensive brand than the all-plastic Revlon version, as the metal brush head straightens better.
This product works great only thing I wasn't happy with was ulta .. they didn't give me my free hair product with purchase .. just said didn't knw about it .. have no more .. didn't even bother looking ..
