When I think about beauty tools that have gone viral in the last year, the first product that comes to mind is Revlon's One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. Not only does it have more than 260,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, but I honestly can't scroll my TikTok feed without seeing at least one person using this fan-favorite blow-dryer brush. It's easy to see why: not only is it affordable, but it's helped countless people achieve salon-worthy blowouts from the comfort of their own homes. Although this product has amassed what can only be described as a cult following, users still had suggestions for improvement. Revlon's response? The One-Step Volumizer Plus ($42, originally $70).

The newest edition of Revlon's most beloved hair tool sees some big updates, and it's on major sale for Amazon Prime Day. The latest version is top-notch, so grab it while you still can because the sale only lasts through October 11.

I tried out the older version of Revlon's blow-dryer brush, but the brush head was a little too big for me and made it difficult to nail down my go-to style. Also, I didn't love the heat settings because it felt like the high heat was too much for my hair, but the low setting was too low to set the style I was looking to achieve. In the end, it left my hair feeling a little dry and dehydrated, so I opted to use a different tool for my at-home blowouts. However, my best friend uses the older version and swears by it, so when I heard about the improvements and the smaller brush attachment on the newest version, I decided it was time to give the blow-dry brush a second chance. After I started seeing glowing reviews for the newer version on TikTok I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. When I received it in the mail, I eagerly awaited wash day so I could finally test it out.

  • The most recent tool has ceramic-titanium tourmaline technology, which helps reduce heat damage and protect hair against it.
  • It has low, medium, high, and cool heat settings for easy customization. (The previous version only had low, high, and cool.)
  • While the original version had a 4.25-inch oval brush, the newest version comes with a 2.4-inch oval brush.
  • The brush head is detachable for easy storing and traveling.

What I Like About the Revlon Revlon One-Step Volumizer Plus

The biggest difference I noticed between this brush and others I've used in the past is how well my hairstyle stayed put. Although I think I've pretty much mastered the '90s blowout, I've often found that the look can fall throughout the day if I don't use a ton of hairspray or texture spray. I didn't use either after the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer, and my flipped-in ends lasted even after a night of sleeping on them.

While my hair sometimes felt dry when using the older version of this blow-dryer brush, my experience with the newer version was the opposite: it was smooth and shiny.

How to Use the Revlon Revlon One-Step Volumizer Plus

When wash day finally arrived, I prepped my damp, clean hair with a leave-in conditioner, hair oil, and a heat protectant. I then waited until my hair was about 85 percent dry, and I separated it into sections. I started out by running the brush through my ends, then curled and flipped the hair under. I repeated those steps for the middle and top sections, and in the end, I was left with a perfect blowout.

What to Consider Before Trying the Revlon Revlon One-Step Volumizer Plus

My only wish is that this tool had an option for different attachments, but with the detachable head as a brand-new feature, who knows what Revlon has in store for the future. Still, if you're looking for an affordable way to achieve a salon-worthy blowout without ever stepping foot outside of your house, either add Revlon's One-Step Hair Dryer to your cart or add it to your holiday wish list ASAP.
