Scrolling through my Instagram feed, I saw an ad displaying a jaw-dropping before-and-after video of someone’s naturally coily hair getting blown completely straight in just a few seconds. I clicked on the ad and was introduced to the RevAir Reverse-Air Hair Dryer. The reviews I found from YouTube and TikTok creators were surprisingly consistent: This $400 hair dryer blew them away (literally). Of course, I had to see what all the hype was about as a self-proclaimed product junkie who's tried it all.
Braids are the perfect hairstyle for switching up your regular ponytail. While you might skip a few blowouts in between washes, braids require the same level of maintenance as an un-braided 'do.
Simply put, braids are interlaced strands holding your hair together with minimal effort. Aside from keeping your hair frizz-free, braids can also provide a simple solution to your typical mane conundrums.
A Reverse-Air Dryer specifically designed to dry, stretch, smooth, and lengthen all hair types in HALF the time it usually takes to dry and flat iron. Plus, it doesn't damage the natural curl pattern of the hair and reduces heat exposure while also taming frizz and sealing in shine.
No one is more surprised by this wholehearted recommendation than me. I initially started testing the RevAir with extreme skepticism and disdain, fully expecting to use it and dismiss it instantly, thus relegating it to the already crowded Competition section of Wirecutter’s hair dryers guide.
