Summary

If styling your hair in the morning with a brush and blow dryer is something you never look forward to, the Revlon Step One will change that.

What are you buying?

If you find it difficult to use a hairdryer and brush at the same time, you are not the only one. Most women only manage to style part of their hair before it becomes too tiring to juggle the two.

It can be downright impossible to style your hair if you have an injury or disability that limits your arm mobility.

The alternative is to spend a lot of money going to the salon every time you want a blowout.

The REVLON One Step Hair Dryer and Volumiser is here to help. In the words of customers who’ve used it, ‘it’s a game changer’.

It combines a hair dryer and styler in one ingenious gadget that allows you to dry and style your hair in one go.

Not only will it make your mornings easier, it also saves you loads of time. You can style your hair in half the time while achieving salon-quality results.

Read on for our full review of the One Step hair dryer and volumiser.

 

Key features of Revlon One Step Hair Dryer

1. 2-in-1 styling tool

Most ladies prefer just going to the salon or a blow-dry bar to get their hair styled. It’s difficult to do it right at home and it takes too much time. Using a hairdryer and brush at the same time requires Olympic-level hand gymnastics.

With the Revlon One Step, styling your hair is much easier, faster and you get great results.

For one, it’s lighter than most hairdryers. It weighs less than a kilogram. It doesn’t tire your wrist out as much as a hairdryer.

Being a 2-in-1 styler, you also don’t have to worry about balancing a hairbrush in the other hand.

The Step One has bristles like a brush. The bristles are designed to smooth out your hair without causing any tangling.

Ball tips at the end of the bristles gently massage your scalp as you brush, increasing blood flow and boosting hair volume.

Airflow vents within the bristles produce warm or cool hair that dries, smoothens and volumizes your hair.

Because the vents are distributed evenly throughout the brush, you get better results than with most hair dryers. There’s also less risk of overheating and damaging some parts of your hair.

2. 3 Temperature and 2 speed settings

Similar to a normal hairdryer, you can adjust heat and speed depending on the kind of style you want and your hair type.

The Revlon Step One has three temperature settings: 2 heat levels and a cool setting.

The high heat setting is ideal for those with thick and coarse hair while the lower heat setting is safer for thin fine hair.

The cool setting is often used at the end to set your hair.

As for airspeed, you can choose between two settings.

3. Ionic technology

Ionic technology is common in hairdryers where it helps dry the hair faster, protects the hair and reduces frizz.

Revlon’s ionic technology in the Step One has the same benefits.

The hairdryer cum styler produces negative ions that mix with the air coming from the vents. These negative ions dry up water droplets quicker, reducing the amount of time you spend drying your hair.

They also allow you to use a lower temperature setting, which is safer for your hair, while achieving fast and effective drying.

Ionic technology is one of the reasons the Revlon Step One is able to leave your hair smooth, sleek and frizz-free.

4. Tangle-free bristles

The oval-shaped Step One uses two kinds of bristles: normal nylon bristles and some kind of natural bristles.

Combined with the ball tips, this combined bristle design ensures smooth tangle-free hair.

How easy is it to use?

The Revlon Step One is much easier to use compared brush and dryer.

Its compact and lightweight design makes it easy to hold even for extended period, though you’ll rarely need to spend more than a few minutes before your hair is perfect.

It comes with a swivel cable, which allows you to easily reach all parts of your hair without the cord getting in the way.

To get the best results, Revlon recommends towel-drying your hair first to remove excess moisture. You may also need to detangle your hair with a brush before using the Step One.

Make sure you also select the right heat setting. Then work through your hair section by section. Just before you finish, run a quick cool shot using the cool setting to set your hair.

Note that you can still use Step One even if you have extensions. You just need to be a bit careful not to pull too hard.

The Revlon Step One is rated at 800 watts, which is not as powerful as most hair dryers. So don’t expect the usual powerful airflow you get from a normal blow dryer.

But because of the evenly-spread air flow and ionic technology, the wattage is not that big a deal. Even if you have thick long hair, you’ll still get great results.

What accessories are included?

The Revlon Step One doesn’t come with any accessories.

If you spend a lot of time on the road, we recommend buying this co2CREA hard travel case designed specifically for the Step One.

Depending on your hair and styling preferences, you may also need some extra accessories to use the Step One such as hair clamps.

This affordable pack of 12 section clips from Anself is great if you don’t have some clamps at home.

Pros

  • Convenient and time-saving 2-in-1 functionality.
  • Easy to use.
  • Salon-quality results.
  • Adjustable heat settings.
  • Cool shot.
  • Ionic technology reduces frizz.

Cons

  • Not ideal for short hair because of the wide brush.
  • A bit noisy.

Anything else you should know?

The Revlon Step One is meant for use with medium length and long hair. That’s because the brush is extra-wide. It wouldn’t work on short hair.

Final verdict

If styling your hair in the morning with a brush and blow dryer is something you never look forward to, the Revlon Step One will change that.
