You may have seen my review (HERE) of the Revlon One Step Dryer from a couple of years ago – it’s still in fairly regular use, or was, because I’m definitely favouring the Dry Bar Double Shot Blow Dryer Brush. To me, it feels lighter and more powerful and gives you the kind of hair dresser finish that’s always rather elusive at home. The main action is the pull through – the bristles grip the hair much as your stylist’s brush does, with strength to pull out all the kinks, although I’ll never be as quick as my hairdresser. So, the grip, combined with the heat means you only really need to pass it through your hair two or three times before that section is done. I’d recommend sectioning into two or three – that’s half the solution because if you don’t section you don’t get that layered and smoothed effect. It’s so that you’re drying your hair in layers rather than in a lump. It took me a long time to learn to section!
These are very ropy pictures – Covid and bug face – but hopefully you can see how I’ve sectioned and the subsequent smooth look. I’ve checked the specs against Revlon (on offer at TKMaxx for £39.99 HERE) and it looks like they have different wattages which does make Drybar more powerful and faster drying. It’s lighter and slimmer (other than the brush which looks the same size to me) and to be honest, is much more pleasing on the eye. I think the Drybar version is for anyone who needs sleek hair guaranteed in the minimum amount of time and has medium to thick hair. It’s £129 HERE. I remember feeling very conflicted about my Dyson hair dryer which was a sample and suggesting that spending £329 HERE on something that does a job a bit faster than the other things that do the same job but I’ve had it since 2016, it’s still going and I would immediately rebuy, without thinking twice (although it was £299 back then – but less attachments). I used to dry Honey with it too and she didn’t mind because it’s relatively quiet. I think I might look back and feel the same about the Doubleshot.
So sorry, it’s another quiet week – I know you won’t mind. This is the best time to take a break because although I’ve got lots of lovely things to show you, they’re in shorter supply than usual as everyone is on holiday.
