Rev-up your beauty routine with RevAir

 

 

My hair and it’s natural wave (it’s shoulder length now).

Do you have any resolutions for the new year? Eat better? Drink more water? Get more sleep?

Do you have any resolutions as far as your beauty routine is concerned?

I, personally, don’t take long to get ready. It takes me just a few minutes to put on my make-up. Letting my hair air dry takes the longest. I need to start getting ready a couple of hours before I need to leave if I want to let my hair dry naturally and have my natural wave come through. If I don’t mind not having my natural waves, I can just blow dry my hair.

My daughter takes FOREVER to get ready. Not only is she very particular about her make-up (she has to have the “perfect” eye), but her hair… oh my goodness her hair… that takes the longest. First she needs to take a shower and wash her hair. Then she needs to blow dry her hair. She has very thick hair, so that alone takes a very long time. After her hair is dry, she then has to use the straightener to straighten her hair.

If only there was a way she could dry and straighten her hair at the same time, but that would not be possible. Or would it?

Believe it or not, you CAN blow dry your hair AND straighten it at the same time. All you need is a revolutionary product called RevAir.

RevAir is the world’s first and only reverse air dryer. By reverse air, I mean instead of blowing hot air on your hair, RevAir “sucks” (for lack of a better description) the wetness from your hair. I liken it to a vaccuum cleaner… but for your hair.

Not only does RevAir dry your hair 3x faster than conventional hair dryers, it also straightens your hair too.

RevAir is good for all hair types, from fine to thick and from straight to kinky/curly. Anyone could use and enjoy RevAir.

I was sent a unit to review.

I was shocked when I received the package. The brand includes a lot with the unit (depending on the package you purchase). The one I received included a holder, clips and more goodies.

This is NOT your ordinary hair dryer. It literally looks like a mini-vacuum cleaner. The RevAir has a triangular shaped base, a thick hose and a strangely shaped wand at the end.

The wand creates a reverse-air tunnel that surrounds your hair from root to tip with heated air to naturally dry and straighten your hair. The high heat setting is half the wattage of a standard blow dryer. There is also a low heat setting and it can be used with no heat, as a cool shot of air. Reverse-air moves heat in the natural direction of cuticles helping to smooth hair. Consistent tension effectively straightens hair replacing the need for a brush’s damaging friction.

Check out this brief video to see the RevAir in action.

 

Due to a shoulder injury, I am unable to use the RevAir myself (using it was my initial “game plan” when offered a unit to review). My daughter was more than happy to use the RevAir and help me to facilitate my review.

My daughter has very thick hair. It’s normally wavy towards the ends of her hair (as seen in the photo below). It used to be thicker/wavier, but years of coloring and cutting it has taken away some of the thickness and wave to her hair.

My daughter’s hair is still wet/damp in the above photo. The top layer of her hair has already started to dry. You can use RevAir with wet hair (it just took me a bit to take the “before” photo, which is why it started to dry).

Small sections of you hair goes inside of the RevAir wand to “suck” the water out of it, while straightening it at the same time. If you would like to learn more about the process, you can read about it here – https://myrevair.com/pages/how-it-works.

Here is my daughter’s hair after using RevAir (disregard her split ends – that is from content coloring her hair).

It’s amazing how quickly my daughter can get herself ready by combining two steps (drying her hair and straightening it). We both like how her hair looks afterwards. Using the flat iron makes her hair look stiff and too flat/straight. Using the RevAir her hair is straight, but in a more natural looking way.

Here are some tips to using RevAir;

Tension (Reverse Air Speed)

  • This is the dial on the Base Unit. Tension replaces the need for a brush or hot flat irons. Start at setting 2-3. Once you see what your individual hair can tolerate, you can go up one level at a time. If you have any tangles, go down a level. Do not turn it immediately to level 7, as it may not give you the best result – in fact, it can be the opposite. Coily, Type 4 hair usually works best around Level 5-7.

Heat

  • This is located on the Wand. The Temperature Settings are No, Low and High Heat.  Even the hottest heat of the Wand is LESS than the lowest heat on most Flat Irons.

No Pumping

  • There is no need to pump or bounce the want. In fact, when you do that, you are not allowing the roots to get dry. The reverse-air move constantly and consistently down the entire length of your hair, drying from root to end at once. Bouncing the wand may distrupt air flow and that can cause tangles.

Time to Dry

  • Each section will dry in 30-90 seconds, so long as Wand is kept to scalp. Thickness, texture and section size mean your time may vary. Experiment to find your ideal time.  Test by pulling Wand a few inches away from scalp and touching roots.  If they are dry, it is likely you are done.
  • Waist length hair is much less dense at the ends, watch your tension setting and perhaps use detangler on the ends. You may need to use a bit bigger section if tangles occur at low tension settings (1 or 2). Some may have to dry in 2 phases – Dry the roots first, then move about half way down on a lower setting to be sure each section of hair gets dry time in the wand chamber.

Want it straighter?

  • For those with Type 4 hair, you may find you want to finish your look with flat ironing.  Remember, getting hair to this point has just happened in less time with less heat, meaning less damage.

It took my daughter a few times to figure out what level works best for her. Now that she has the settings figured out to suit her hair type, it takes her even less time to do her hair. She’s a “pro” at using RevAir now.

Once my shoulder is better, I am going to start using the RevAir too. I do like how my hair looks with it’s natural wave, but those times where I want to change up my look, or I just need for my hair to dry faster (for example, when it’s freezing cold outside), I will defiantly use the RevAir. I have seen how nice my daughter’s hair looks using it, and I know what a time saver it is.

There are only a few “issues” some might have with RevAir. For one, it is costly (over $300+), so it is not “budget friendly.” If you would like to take into considering how much time it saves you on your beauty routine, then the price makes it well worth it. I would never be able to afford one myself, but owning one, I can appreciate the benefit to owning one.

The unit is large, and the hose is cumbersome. You would need room in your closet to fit it. My daughter keeps in on the floor by her dresser because we have no other place to house it. It does take up a lot more room than a typical hair dryer.

Initially it’s a little awkward to use, but once you get the hang of it, it’s not that bad (as per my daughter).

My daughter loves the RevAir, and she uses it all the time. She’s also very picky about her beauty products, so that says a lot about the RevAir.
