The Revlon Pro Collection One Step Hair Dryer And Styler Is A Time And Style Game Changer For Hair


hair, Pro Collection, review

Let me introduce you to the Revlon Pro Collection One Step Hair Dryer and Styler, ($49.99).  This is the blow dryer that dreams are made of.  I'm so excited about this new way to dry my hair that I can hardly sit still long enough to write the review.  I want you to get this and to get one for everyone on your holiday list who has hair, doesn't air dry and doesn't use a diffuser.  It's CHANGED MY LIFE!!!

The Revlon One Step is a blow dryer with a brush on the end, all in one unit.

I received an email that told me about it and I thought it might be a good dryer for me.  I've had trouble drying my hair for five years since I had a neck surgery, followed by a shoulder surgery and another neck surgery.  The use of my left arm to hold a dryer or a brush for long periods of time just wasn't available to me.  I went to my stylist for her to dry and straighten my hair for four years.  And this past year, my husband has done it for me.

Let me tell you about my hair....the short story is that it's thick, curly, unruly and gets frizzy with much blow drying.  If you have curly hair, you know what I'm talking about.  Before my accident, it would take me four hours to wash, dry and straighten my hair.  Due to the frizz of the curl, I'd have to dry for 15-20 minutes, wait about that long, and repeat until dry.  Then follow with the flat iron.  It was a long process and not one I particularly enjoyed.  This past year, it has taken my husband between 45 minutes to an hour to blow it out and then I flat iron it and spray the heck out of it and pray I don't wake up the next day curly.  It takes a lot of time and finesse so I only do it at night.  And now I have this new cut that is a little strange, and I've just wanted to pull all my hair out, rather than try to make sense of it.

So last night, my husband said "are you ready for me to dry your hair", (it's very sweet).  And I told him that I bought something new at Ulta and I thought I might start the process myself.  I figured I would dry for maybe two minutes to tame my bangs and then head to the livingroom where he'd finish, just like always.

*pause while we cue the singing angels*

I couldn't believe it.  I dried my hair all by myself.  I did it in around FIVE minutes.  And it was straight.  Ok, not four hours, mind you, about five minutes!!!  And it was pretty easy!!

And it was straight.

And there wasn't any frizz.  NO FRIZZ.  I had gotten frustrated with the amount of frizz in trying to dry this new 'do.  No frizz.  And I did it by myself!!!

I'm sorry this is so long, but this is a freaking miracle for me!!

I was worried that maybe if I used the brush under the hair to pull it to curl under, that it might cause the hair shaft to expand and frizz, but I did some of that, and it didn't frizz.  I used the dryer as if I was brushing my hair slowly and there was no frizz.  And it straightened so easily and I didn't even use 5 kinds of goo, like usual.

And it had shine!!  Totally unexpected.

I was so excited that I went to my personal Facebook and got in long discussions about why my friends need to buy this dryer.  So excited that I forgot to flat iron after it was dry.  But I got up this morning, and my hair was still straight!!!!!!!!!  It usually has part of it kind of curly and part of it sticking out, but I ran to show the hubby and he was impressed too.  All just with the Revlon One Step Hair Dryer And Styler and no flat iron.  Seriously amazing.

So about the dryer itself, it has cool pink racing stripes that just happen to match my hair.  From tip to tail, the whole brush measures almost 12.5" long.

The brush paddle itself is really nice.  It measures 4.75" long and 3.25" wide.  The bristles are nice and flexible so that they don't knot up your hair.  The massaging tips are gentle to the scalp.

At the end of the wand is the control switch.  Revlon suggests low for fine or thin hair and high for thick hair.  I used low even though my hair is thick and it worked very nicely.  There is a cool shock setting to "set the style in place".  I didn't use that function.  I never do...maybe I should?

The electrical plug in has both test and reset buttons.

A few more details about the dryer:  The two in one design was created to cut drying and styling time, and my experience is that it REALLY does!!!  It uses 1000W of power and has ionic conditioning to reduce frizz and boost shine.  Yeah, that's working too.  I'm really impressed.

Even the tangle-free cord doesn't tangle.  It swivles in the end of the arm.  You know how so many "tangle free cords" just end up really squirrly anyway?  This one doesn't.  I had no ackward encounters with the cord.  The One Step meets all of Revlon's advertised claims.  It is lightweight enough that I can use one arm, if I want.

It seriously just couldn't have been easier.

I'm really over the moon about this dryer.  Keep in mind, I've only used it once, but the ease of use and the results were so astonishing that I feel safe in saying it's going to change my life and the amount of time and hassle I've used with my hair.  If you buy this for pre-teen children, be sure to tell them that the paddle can get very hot so try to keep the hands from touching it.

You can find the Revlon One Step Hair Dryer And Styler at any merchant that sells Revlon hair items.  On my street, in less than 15 minutes, I can purchase this at  Target,  and Ulta where they both have it in stock.  I purchased mine online during an Ulta sale.

You've heard my hair story, now I'd like to hear yours.  What is your greatest challenge with your hair?

  1. I have thick hair, too, and it seems to take forever to dry it with a round brush and hair dryer. And if it's not completely dry, it will start to curl/frizz. This sounds like a great product that I need to check out ASAP.

  5. Of if your review is anything to go by then I need me one of these, I am such a lazy one when it comes to drying my hair so much that I just leave it as is and don't bother but if I had a hair dryer with a comb attached I think that would change.

  16. I think I've found something to put on my xmas list! I usually let my hair air-dry, but I've been going with big curlers and a bonnet dryer when I want straighter hair these days. That takes about 2 hours, though. This sounds a LOT faster!

    1. Wow. I don't even have the patience to air dry. It takes forever and I get really cold.

  17. This indeed sounds like a product I would love to try. I love the idea of it being a styling tool with blow dryer in one and it cut back on the frizz which my hair has a problem with now days. Thanks for sharing the review.

  18. I think I need this. I have thick, insane hair that lives in one of two states, controlled and styled or up. lol The former takes too much time for anyone to justify. The latter... Well you can tell. This may be the device that could tame my wild tresses and keep my hands off the flat iron.

    1. I haven't used the flat iron at all since I bought this!!

  20. This sounds amazing. I just bought a brand new hair dryer a few weeks ago. I might have to invest in this one too. I like when my hair is straight.

    1. I do too. Straight is the easiest once it's there but can be difficult to achieve.

  21. This looks like such a great product! I am not coordinated enough to dry and brush at the same time so this is awesome! Adding it to my Christmas list!
