The Blow Dry Brush Comparison (and which one I loved the most!)
ABLE – What Sets Them Apart and Where They are Heading
If this post triggers you because you bought the first edition of the Revlon blow dry brush and accidentally fried off your hair, forgive me. And I have good news: this blog post contains a couple recommendations for you that WILL NOT burn your hair off (if used correctly, of course).
You’ve probably heard about the Dyson Airwrap, right? It’s a multifunction blow dry brush system that comes with a few unique attachments to give you anything from a classic blowout look to beachy waves. I’ve used it a handful of times, and frankly, I just don’t love it. Not only does it cost an arm and a leg, but it’s also fussy and seems to complicate an otherwise simple process, in my opinion.
I know people adore it, and I’m happy they found a tool that they love. It’s just not for me.
Since blow-dry brushes hit the market a few years ago, they’ve gotten a lot of buzz and I get it! It’s hard to give yourself a blowout at home with a blowdryer and a round brush. Even as a hairstylist I find it hard to do when both hands are each holding a tool. Brands are developing high functioning and high performing blow-dry brushes in this category that create amazing results. I picked 4 brushes to use a few times and give my full review, so check it out in the video below!
Each brush has different features that set it apart. The right choice for you is really up to what you’re looking for. As I mentioned in the video, the T3 Airebrush is my favorite as it offers the greatest variety in heat and speeds. I also love that it comes with two brush heads.
The Revlon One-Step Volumizer 2.0 is a really nice option for a lower price point! TIP: I never use it on the highest setting, though!
And the Drybar Reserve 3-in-1 is a nice choice if you want to declutter and simply have 1 tool to do it all.
The amika Blow Dry Brush fell at the bottom of my list only because it didn’t offer the same options that the other brushes did, but that doesn’t make it a bad option! I love the size of the brush head on this tool! (And if this one is your choice, use my code SMALLTHINGS10 for 10% off)
I have to share that ever since I’ve been going through the process of testing these brushes, I’ve gotten so many compliments on my hair. It’s bouncy, smooth, and shiny — and I’ve used one of these 4 brushes in the past few weeks in order to prep for my review. You cannot really go wrong with a choice, and I hope you find the right tool for you!
Have you tried any of these brushes? Which is your favorite?
