Rated 4.41 out of 5 stars
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
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.

Great at styling. However, a big con is I noticed I got a lot of split ends after buying this. I also use a heat protector.

I have fine curly shoulder-length hair (with an undercut - so not a TON of hair to dry), and with the right styling cream, this blow dryer gives me stylist like results with out the tennis elbow causing gymnastics of using a round brush and hair dryer. I wish I had found it years before since the only way I could successfully straighten/smooth my hair was with 45-min plus of flat/curling iron machinations, AFTER blow drying.
A few notes, I think people with extremely thick and or long hair might not have as great of results, and as with any heat styling product, a good styling or heat protecting product, can go a LONG way to improving your results. I have used the following products with excellent results: Redkin Velvet Geletin (now Big Blowout), It's a 10 Miracle Styling Potion, and for more humid times, Oligo Sculting Paste.
Just my two cents.

I have 4C hair and when i tell you it worked amazing for me. I put my hair in 4 sections after condtioning and dentangling, followed up with a heat protect, the IC one. It really stretches your hair especiakky if your hair shrinks like mine does. It changed an hour of blow drying to 20 minutes

I got it as a Christmas present and I am not exaggerating when I say IT HAS BEEN THE BEST HAIR PRODUCT I have ever owned! I have long, thick hair & this product has saved me time! Only takes me 45 minutes to style. It leaves my hair shiny & soft!!!!!

I really wanted to love this hair tool. I would always see lots of good reviews on it and youtubers/influencers raving about it but honestly, it's very disappointing. Ever since I started using it, I feel like it's been breaking my hair. I do not recommend using it to actually to style your hair, but it's fine to just dry it. I don't know if it's just my hair type, but it always comes off very frizzy, no matter what prep I do, and end up adding more heat by straightening afterwards which defeats the purpose of purchasing this tool. I've tried doing it on wet hair, damp, even completely dry hair.

This hair dryer brush is revolutionary! It makes my hair shiny and also adds volume and body. My hair feels so smooth once I'm done that I can't stop running my fingers through the strands. Only downside I have is the handle is pretty big and sometimes hard to maneuver, but once you get the hang of it it's a pretty neat gadget.

so convenient. I put it in my gym bag and it's perfect for drying + brushing + some styling!!!
FoolishGirl from California
I was hesitant to try this because I have frizzy, curly, and unruly hair. This thing changed the game for me and is totally the holy grail for my hair! No more spending 30 minutes in the heat blow drying to only spend another 30-45 minutes in the heat straightening! This is a one shot and done tool, and I love it!

This is my second Revlon One Step Volumizer Hot Air Brush. My other one is four years old and still going strong. I wanted to have a back up. My hair is shoulder length and this one works great for me. It makes styling my hair so fast and I love the out come.
francesca from california

Love this product. In the heat and humidity of summer, I borrowed this from my daughter I had no frizz and my style held. Purchased one of my own because of that. Pulls hair a little bit, so would probably not use it every day, but for days when I want a fluff without the need for hot curlers, this works great.
Deb from Alabama
I love my hot brush, my hair has never looked so good! I will use it till it dies then buy another one, im looking at getting my friend one for Christmas!
natalie from Los Angeles, CA
Today is my first time trying out this product and WOW!! It worked so quickly! My hair feels so soft and feels like I just got out of the salon. I think I wouldve preferred to have gone with a smaller brush to get more curls but this overall does the job! It wasn't able to get my shorter hair on the front of my scalp (I have a curly shag cut) so I would just need to straughten it the slightest. Overall very happy with this purchase, if you're on the fence about it DO IT!:)
SJ from Ca
Works well but comes with damage. I do not recommend, this is not safe on hair. Save yourself money and save your hair.
Kristen from Clarksburg wv
Love it but it's kinda loud I went from the one that turns and dries your hair cause it stopped turning and been looking at this but I got it for myself as a Christmas 🎁 and I love it it dries my hair so fast ( I have short thin hair)
Adriana from Beaumont
Ordené mi cepillo online,en oferta por black friday,lo recogí en tienda(manejé media hora para llegar a la tienda) cuando lo abri en casa tenia pelos pegados se nota que estaba usado,cuando lo compre vi la caja abierta pero pense que tal vez por la manipulación en tienda pudo pasar ! REVISEN TODO NO SE CONFIEN ! La proxima semana iré a cambiarlo por uno nuevo,sino lo devolveré !

It fried my hair. Took a long time for my hair to recover.
Sarah from indianapolis
This product is waaaaaay too hot with no cooler setting. It fried my daughter's hair. Do not buy. Get something with heat settings.

I didn't think this would work. Now I am addicted. no more tired arms holding a round brush. I can straighten or add waves. Timed myself. dried hair in 5 minutes, because who has time?
Sandra from Winter Park, Florida
I love this dryer but the cord is too short. I am only 5'4". It would be terrible if I was any taller
Elle M from Buena Park, Ca
I used a Revlon Volumizer for years and absolutely loved it. The bristles were soft and felt great against my scalp as I dried my hair. When it came time to replace the old model, I didnt even consider a different brand. But this version isnt the same - the bristles arent as soft, and the round, colored tips keep coming off and then I later find them in my hair. Very disappointed and I won't be buying another one.
