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.

Summertime – it’s the perfect moment to highlight the latest in beauty and inner wellbeing innovations, just in time to add to our daily regimes.

Following are some of my discoveries in the areas of skincare, cosmetics, and wellness.

RevAir uses a patented technology that dries hair in the natural downward direction of the cuticle to lock out frizz and seal in shine, using low heat, offering a healthier styling option.

Seriously innovative, the new RevAir uses a patented suction technology and cool air to gently stretch my curls, minimizing heat damage that can come with the traditional blow dryer method.
I can confirm that the RevAir Reverse-Air Dryer is all that and more. In other words, please believe the hype.

WINNER | Best Hair Dryer for Coily Hair

"This is the definition of true innovation: This reverse-air dryer makes straightening extremely coily hair a breeze! No more fighting with your coils when going straight with this new toy!"

Blow-drying my hair has to be my least favorite part of my wash day routine. Still, for a few months now, I've continued to see people on Instagram talking about the Revair Reverse-Air Dryer.  

Other blow dryers would have me taking special attention to the roots, which adds additional drying time, but this tool fully dried my hair in the allotted 90-second increments. It's a game changer.

These are the results that I would get after a grueling blowout session with a regular hair dryer and a hair brush.

As we transition into the chillier months ahead, many of us will be looking to embrace blowouts, making the search to find the best hair dryer all the more relevant. 
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.
