Tutorial for the Revlon One-Step Paddle Dryer
This styling hot air brush differs from others we’ve reviewed since many people are able to use it as a complete hair drying system. While other brushes require you to dry the hair to approximately 80% dry, this brush is more like a hair dryer, which truly keeps you from having to purchase a separate hair dryer. You don’t need to worry about holding a large brush while using the blow dryer, either. This drying brush can be used one handed.
After washing your hair, use the styling product that you love. A hair oil can keep the heat from causing problems with your hair. While you have the option of choosing the right heat setting for your type of hair, it’s always best to minimize the impact of heat to your hair.
Comb your hair and divide it into sections so you can start with the hair underneath first. You might want to start with the highest setting as you brush through the hair so it’s not as wet. Once it’s somewhat dry, you can lower the heat. Some users recommend that it’s used from high heat to dry the hair to low heat for styling then cool for setting your style.
Watch this quick video tutorial to see how the Revlon Oval One-Step Volumizing Hair Dryer Brush works!
Revlon One-Step Volumizing Hair Dryer Brush Oval Shape
The volumizing brush is oval shaped for a reason. The edges of the brush are thinner than the front and back because it allows you to get in close to the scalp and curve the brush to create volume. When you can lift and curl close to the scalp, you’ll create a voluminous look that does make it seem that you had a blow-out done in a salon. The 2-inch brush can be used on short or long hair. With long hair, it’s important to ensure that you’re not twisting and tangling hair in the bristles, though.
Revlon One-Step Volumizing Hair Dryer Brush Heat Settings
This dryer uses ion technology to create dryer and shinier hair in less time than it would take for a blow dryer and brush on your own. There are three heat settings, which give you a customized experience. You can choose the setting that works best with your hair. Thin or treated hair might need less heat while coarse, curly hair will need a high heat setting. You’ll want to use the right heat for the amount of drying and styling needed, too.
Revlon One-Step Volumizing Hair Dryer Bristles
The brush has a combination of two types of bristles. There are long, nylon bristles for detangling while brushing the hair and drying it initially. The tufted bristles closer to the base of the brush are used to separate the hair for styling purposes. It’s important to brush the hair gently. The combination of bristles can pull hair from the scalp if you’re not careful.
