My life was eternally 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 nearly anybody can admire the small enhancements.
It’s referred to as a reverse dryer, as a result of as an alternative of sizzling air blowing out in your hair, it pushes down towards the hose within the route of the hair cuticle, lowering frizz. Tiny holes across the opening of the wand direct air to the scalp, however it feels cool in your head. As scary because it seems, the wand will not eat your hair.
The most vital replace to the RevAir Reverse-Air Dryer is its measurement. It’s made up of a hose, wand, and base, however the previous 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 won’t learn as a lot of a distinction, however my husband and I each gasped once we opened the field. The hose can also be thinner and shorter. I do not assume the RevAir will ever be small, however my lavatory countertop positive appreciates these modifications.
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 chances are you’ll even contemplate 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 a further filter and foam liners.
Other upgrades embody a brand new removable wand relaxation that slips proper beneath the deal with, a small digital display screen for rigidity 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 which you could have conversations whereas utilizing it. I did not discover that utterly correct; it is not overbearingly loud, however it nonetheless seems like another hair dryer.
As with the unique, your outcomes will fluctuate relying in your hair sort, 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 have been straighter once 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 rigidity 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 sizzling will 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 always requires a complete lot of pulling, this vac-like system can also be painless.
Even on the identical settings, I observed the brand new mannequin saved me just a few extra minutes over the unique, although I nonetheless often wanted one other flat iron to clean out a number of the unavoidable puffiness. If your hair is already clean, you may most likely skip this step.
