You may be surprised to know that someone like me who’s had fine, pin straight hair her entire life exclusively styles with a blow dryer. Yes, even on my ‘pageant queen’ hair days when locks are large and in charge, I first give myself a blow out and then add in the curls. So I wanted to share with you my go-to, 3-step, straighten-style-volumize routine, featuring the Revlon Pro Collection Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizing Styler.
Creating a quick, easy, and low maintenance routine was important to me as this style is the base style I launch with each and every day. I knew when I chose a one-step dryer that I wanted it to 1) save me time … hello hair dryer + oval brush in ONE 2) improve my haircare routine aka save me time and 3) be easy enough for me to do all on my own but still have those salon results. I mean, am I the only one that can deadlift 110 lbs but still believes that holding a round brush over my head while blow drying my hair seems unreasonable? How does that become so heavy!
Luckily for me this Revlon hair tool does all 3 things in 1 easy step, so let me explain what I use the three different heat settings for and then I’ll walk you through each step of my hair drying and styling routine. I utilize the cool setting for drying my hair after a workout, on days I don’t want to wash my hair and just need to mach 5 to make it through the day.
For drying my hair after washing it, for events, and for special occasions I dry my hair with the two heat settings, switching between the low and high settings. Here’s why: this Revlon hair tool has an easy grip with its ergonomic design, maximum drying power as the air is distributed evenly through its airflow vents in every direction, and you get high shine and fewer frizzes with the tufted bristles with boar technology. Now that’s a lot of technology! And here’s what I do:
Step one: Your hair’s wet, now what?
Begin with damp hair, allow your hair to air dry 60% and then use this Revlon Hair Tool to achieve that salon look, this will ensure that the least amount of damage is being done to your hair. I usually do my makeup, allowing my hair to air dry for ten minutes and then blow dry and style it.
Step two: Just flipping your head over and blow drying your hair isn’t going to cut it.
Section out your hair, this makes it easier to style pieces more a more manageable way and keeps tangles at bay.
Step three: You got this!
Blow dry and style! I start with the hair at the nape of my neck, on the high setting grabbing a section of hair, allow the brush to sit in your hair for an extra moment, just long enough for heat to be evenly distributed, and then slow drag the oval brush down and through your hair. I always flick my wrist on the ends of my hair, giving that piece a nice polished, curled look and just continue to twist and comb the hair through the brush until each section is dry.
Moving on to each section, the last section I do is on my bangs where I blow dry them forwards and then push them back for a nice voluminous, polished look.
Lastly, I give my entire head one more pass with the Revlon Pro Collection Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizing Styler to eliminate an extra moisture left behind, and then BOOM! Just like that, your hair is dry, it’s shiny, and ready for the day!
