The Product

RevAir, £359

The Hype

A hairdryer that’s faster, uses 50% less energy and is healthier for your hair can now all be possible.

From founders Debra Isaacson, her brother Kip Cooper and friend and engineer Scott Thomason, this hairdryer uses reverse-air, suction technology to pull water away from the surface of the hair allowing for more efficient drying.

Straying from the laborious nature of using conventional hairdryers, having to wait for longer periods of time and applying heat protectant, the RevAir doesn’t require any heat protectant or product, although applying product will of course aid in the process.

It can be used on all different hair types, from afro hair, to coarser hair, to thinner hair.

Beauty Bio

Dealing with thick, long and wavy hair, I tend to always use heat on a daily basis particularly with using straighteners.

The Review

My hair has the potential, especially on hotter days to get frizzier throughout the day, so I always strive for smooth, straighter hair.

The RevAir has three heat modes, a cool, medium and hot. I used the cool at first and then the medium for the remainder of the drying process.

Starting off with wet hair, I took a section and placed the ends into the RevAir and then moved the RevAir towards the root for optimal drying and held in place until that section had dried. I then repeated the process with the rest of my hair. Bear in mind that you shouldn’t move the RevAir up and down in case it tangles the hair.

The Verdict

My hair was straighter than when I straighten it, and depending on how you section your hair, you have different results. For instance, I sectioned my hair into two buns so I had a good level of volume, whereas if you section your hair into rolls, it creates a more voluminous effect.

The texture of my hair also felt smoother than if drying with a conventional hair dryer, as the hottest setting wasn’t as hot as a hair dryer so there is minimal hair damage.

Also an added bonus, my hair was shinier and felt more light weight, which decreases the amount of product I would usually use after drying.

All in all, I achieved my desired look of straight, smooth and frizz-free hair immediately after drying.
