THE ONLY TOOL THAT ACTUALLY STRAIGHTENS MY THICK, COILY HAIR
Natural hair is in, as evidenced by Megan Thee Stallion's #HotGirlHairJourney, Khloe Kardashian's rare curly hair photo, and Cardi B's DIY 'Hair Day' IG highlight tutorials. The influx of hair products created in recent years has encouraged women and men of all ethnicities to embrace their natural tresses. Seeing this, I felt inspired.
The result I get with the RevAir also allows me to try new styles, like twist outs, flexi-rod sets, and updo’s that I couldn’t do before in the comfort of my home.
For five years, I've been “natural,” meaning I don’t chemically alter my hair texture, which I consider 4c-type coils (i.e., the tightest curl pattern of all hair types). My hair is also thick—a quality that's a curse to me but a blessing to most—resulting in an arm workout just to put it into a ponytail. That in mind, my go-to routine consisted of paying a couple hundred dollars to have a stylist hide my hair under weaves or wigs for a few weeks of not needing to style it. This allowed me to avoid using copious amounts of Eco Style gel and She is Bomb Edge Control—along with effort and time—just to put it into a bun.
When wash day (yes, a whole day) came around, a pang of dread arrived with it because, as an adult, I had no clue how to properly wash and blow-dry my natural hair—that is, until RevAir changed the game for me.
