BioSilk's 1st Professional Hair Tools - My Review & Why You Need To See Them


Two hair tools I've been loving currently are from BioSilk.  They combine ceramic and titanium hair tool technologies to produce lightweight, efficient, frizz defeating salon quality tools.  I have the blow dryer, ($79),  and flat iron, ($79), and I really want to tell you about both because they are really awesome tools.  They are a bargain for the quality and efficiency of the tools.


The Titanium Professional Blow Dryer is a sexy chrome and silver and is lightweight to hold.  Titanium technology allows the dryer to dry hair quicker than average while it seals the cuticle shaft for smoother shinier hair.  It dries my hair much faster than any traditional shaped blow dryer.  I love to use this thing.  For me, one of the best things about it is the reduced noise level!!  It doesn't sound like a whirring jet engine, even on the high setting.  It makes it a relaxing dryer to use.

Some of the details include:
1875 watts of powerful airflow
Titanium Grill

2 speed settings
2 temperature settings
A cool shot button


Ion generator
2 year limited warranty
Includes Free 2 oz. Biosilk Hot Thermal Protectant Mist, directional airflow nozzle, and diffuser attachement




It's a sturdy yet lightweight machine that delivers powerful and comparatively quiet  drying while adding sleekness and shine to the hair.  I really enjoy using this dryer.

The Titanium 1" Flat Iron is also a really terrific tool.  It is sleek and looks a little bit space age with it's high quality titanium mirrored plates, the LED temperature guide and flashing blue lights when it's on.  The plates are curved at the side making it easy to curl hair without catching and pulling it.  The titanium technology seals the cuticle to keep humidity out while making for incredible shine.


Some points of interest about this flat iron:
1 Inch Titanium Plates
Max temperatures of up to 410ºF
LED Digital Temperature Display
1 hour auto shut-off
2 year limited warranty
Includes Free 2 oz. Biosilk Hot Thermal Protectant Mist

You turn on the iron and set the temperature with the three buttons that are on the side.  It's easy to punch it up higher or lower and the iron can heat to the full setting in under a minute.  That surprised me.  It makes styling even quicker.  The ease with which it straightens or curls without catching and pulling was something that I really appreciate.  It's fast and efficient and I love it so much that I put my GHD away.  I don't think you could possibly find a better flat iron at such a price.  I really think you need to consider these with your next hair tool purchase.

You can follow BioSilk on Instagram to learn more about the brand.

I am just loving these tools so much and I love the sleek fancy look of them.  Do you have a particular hair tool that delivers for you that you love?  Have you curled your hair with a flat iron?  I could never do it until I got this one!

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?
