If you have been around blog-land, you have heard lots of talk about this hair tool. These are available at Target or on Amazon and I’m sure other places as well. I bought mine about a year ago and as I am writing this post it looks like I paid double the current Amazon price of $35.
First a little bit about my hair routine: I wash my hair at night and go to bed with slightly damp hair. I wake up to dry hair but I have some bed head going on. I spritz my hair with water mainly in the sections with bed head and then use my Revlon tool to fully dry those sections and to smooth my hair all over a bit. If you wear your hair straight, you are done. You look like you have a salon blow out – no joke.
These are the tools I use to style my hair:
I prefer my hair curled. I use a very old one inch barrel regular curling iron. I learned the importance of clipping the top sections up and doing the bottom first. I curl away from my face, then I let the clips out and curl the top.
The finished product. I think the curls look better after using my dryer tool first. I have learned not to comb out the curls I just created. I spray lightly with my hairspray and let them cool and then I use my fingers to style and…
use this comb to gently tease the top of my head a bit. Then I do a final spray.
My favorite hairspray. It is only 5.99 and I now have it on autoship from Amazon because I can’t find it in my stores regularly. It is really good for my hair. My hair is fine and stick straight but I have a lot of it. The smell of this hairspray is not offensive at all and I am very, very picky about smells.
The finished product. This only takes me about 10 minutes because my hair is virtually dry when I start.
Word of advice: If you start with really wet hair and you have a lot of hair, I would use a traditional blow dryer first and start with the Revlon tool when your hair is only damp. I am the least coordinated person you will ever meet and I can use this tool successfully. It won’t tangle in your hair. I should have shown you a picture with straight hair, but I didn’t think of it.
Do you own one? If you have been on the fence, I do think it is well worth the $35.
