My life was ceaselessly altered when I tried the original RevAir. This monstrously massive vacuum-like hair tool is the way forward for blowouts. You part your moist or damp hair and feed it into the hose, wait 30 to 90 seconds, and then take away your hair to disclose stretched-out, straight, dry locks. It’s magical. Now, RevAir has an up to date model with a better price ticket, however virtually anybody can admire the small enhancements.
It’s known as a reverse dryer, as a result of as an alternative of scorching air blowing out in your hair, it pushes down towards the hose within the route of the hair cuticle, decreasing frizz. Tiny holes across the opening of the wand direct air to the scalp, nevertheless it feels cool in your head. As scary because it seems to be, the wand will not eat your hair.
The most important replace to the RevAir Reverse-Air Dryer is its measurement. It’s made up of a hose, wand, and base, however the outdated base was 10 x 9.5 x 9 inches—RevAir has shrunken it right down to 7.78 x 7.95 x 7.26 inches. That may not learn as a lot of a distinction, however my husband and I each gasped after we opened the field. The hose can also be thinner and shorter. I do not suppose the RevAir will ever be small, however my lavatory countertop certain appreciates these adjustments.
It not solely takes up much less area, however the dryer can also be lighter and simpler to make use of—dare I say one thing you could even take into account touring with in the event you do not thoughts the 8-pound weight. There’s a Total Package version for $70 more that provides a tote bag and a bunch of different equipment, like a hair towel, comb, spray bottle, clips, plus an extra filter and foam liners.
Other upgrades embody a brand new removable wand relaxation that slips proper underneath the deal with, a small digital display for stress as an alternative of a dial, and a small redesign that ditches the brilliant blue accents for matte black styling, delivering a extra glossy and skilled look. The firm says the machine can also be now quiet sufficient you could have conversations whereas utilizing it. I did not discover that utterly correct; it isn’t overbearingly loud, nevertheless it nonetheless seems like some other hair dryer.
As with the unique, your outcomes will range relying in your hair kind, and you will have to attempt just a few totally different strategies earlier than you grasp the RevAir. My curls aren’t tremendous tight, however my hair is thick and coarse, and an all-around ache to take care of. My outcomes had been straighter after I had damp hair as an alternative of soaking moist hair, and I stored my hair within the wand between 45 and 60 seconds. Clean hair works higher than days-old curls, and oils are greatest used after utilizing the dryer.
You get the identical settings: seven stress ranges and two warmth settings—158 and 220 levels Fahrenheit—plus chilly. When I straighten my hair, I usually want to make use of a flat iron at warmth settings between 420 and 450 levels, however going so scorching could be damaging to hair. I like that this is not a lot of a difficulty on the RevAir. Unlike a blowout with a spherical brush that usually requires a complete lot of pulling, this vac-like system can also be painless.
Even on the identical settings, I seen the brand new mannequin saved me just a few extra minutes over the unique, although I nonetheless often wanted one other flat iron to easy out among the unavoidable puffiness. If your hair is already easy, you possibly can in all probability skip this step.
