“What a beautiful morning! I think I’ll begin my leisurely day by washing my hair and then strategically sectioning it, drying it, and curling and/or flat-ironing it for a smooth, bouncy, salon-quality blowout,” said no mom ever. Not even one.
But here are a few things moms actually do say about the life-changing Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. “It is AMAZING for giving [my hair] body,” says one, while another adds, “It’s such good value for the money.” There’s a lot more praise for this “miracle” styling secret. So much praise, in fact, that we were amazed to see that the ingenious device has earned over 138,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.
Intrigued? Here’s what you need to know. This is a multitasking, time-saving tool that combines the power of a blow-dryer with the comfortable, ergonomic shape of a brush — meaning you can literally run the “brush” through your damp hair to dry it, smooth it, and make it bouncy. (All in one single step, no skills required.)
This was made for busy moms who love a fresh blowout, or those with unruly bedhead that would love to get their hair under control. The time-saving tool takes just minutes (some say within 5!) to style your hair. The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer might just solve *all* these problems. Here’s why this has earned its number one spot on Amazon:
It will save you so much time.
You know how fast your kid can scarf down a snack? That’s all the time it takes to tame even the wildest tresses. “If you are a mom, buy this. Right now,” says one verified Amazon reviewer. “I have ramen noodle-type curl to my hair and when it’s thrown up messily, it’s wild … It was partially dried but mainly still damp. My daughter went downstairs to eat a banana with her daddy and I think I was finished [with] my hair within 5 minutes.” Impressive.
It’s a dollar-friendly Dyson and Drybar dupe.
If this product feels familiar, it might be because similar (and much pricier!) products can be found all over the pages of glossy magazines, in online gift guides and splashed across influencers’ Instagram feeds. The celeb-favorite Dyson Airwrap Styler will cost you a casual $550, while Drybar’s The Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush will run you a slightly more reasonable $150. And yet they all do pretty much the exact same thing as the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer, which clocks in at just $60.
It’s so easy to use.
Oh, you didn’t go to hair school? You didn’t take a masterclass in blowout techniques from a celeb stylist? No problem — there are no pro skills required here. “I did my hair for probably the first time since LO was born last night,” shares new mama and What to Expect community member BoyMama9. “It was so easy and quick! I have ridiculously thick and unruly hair, and this tamed it easily and made it so soft and shiny. I could never successfully blow out my hair by myself, and this is definitely going to change that! Just wanted to share in case any other mamas feel like they need a little TLC lately.”
It’s great for curly hair.
If you have thick, curly hair, you know that many styling products just don’t work for you — but trust that this hair tool is totally up to the task. Curly-haired moms said it cuts their drying time in half and is super gentle.
