Just like I mentioned on my Instagram today, I haven’t been to my salon in over a year. My hair has stayed pretty healthy (🙏🏻) and my hairdresser does a wonderful job cutting + coloring my hair so it does well growing out in between visits, so I had been feeling fine about my hair. However, starting a couple of months ago I began to feel like I really needed to pay her a visit. My colored areas have gotten a little brassy and dry. That being said, I’ve been pretty swamped with work and house stuff and just haven’t gotten around to making an appointment. I actually plan to schedule one today!
If you’ve been around SLC long enough you’ll know I love hair products and I’m constantly trying out new ones (shampoos, conditioners, serums, masks etc.) I’ve just never been really into hair tools and usually let my hair air dry. Well, a couple of weeks ago I decided to give this hair tool a try, since it had been sitting in my bathroom cabinet for months already and now I LOVE it. In fact, I was certain I’d be cutting my hair short during my next salon visit and now because of this tool, I think I’ll be leaving it long so I can use it.
The tool is the Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. I have never been able to blow dry my own hair-it ends up looking like I’ve gotten electrocuted. I also have really little patience with my hair, hence why I usually just air dry it and sometimes (most times) don’t even brush it. This hair dryer makes the process so quick and easy since it’s an all-in-one tool.
Here is My Easy 4 Step Process to Natural Waves:
- Spray a heat/thermal protectant spray on damp, towel dried hair. I like this one.
- Use the Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer on damp, towel dried hair. No special process here, I just divide my hair into 3 sections and pass the tool through each until it’s completely dried. I start with passing the tool straight down as if I was just brushing my hair, then I curl it in towards me the last few times of passing it on that strip of hair.
- When I’ve completed drying my hair, I take very small claw hair clips (the smaller the better for less creasing on your hair, even if you have to use a couple) and after wrapping my hair in a low bun (no too tight), I clip my hair up using the clip on the bottom part of the bun. This is to avoid even the smallest crease on my hair where it can be visible.
- When I’m ready to take down my bun, I give the roots of my hair a spray with this dry shampoo + texture spray. I love that it’s a 2-in-1.
I prefer to do this process in the evening so I can sleep in my bun, but at the very least I try and have my hair up in the bun for a few hours. Then each night until I wash my hair again I’ll put my hair back into the bun at night and this extends the waves. I will also use the dry shampoo + texture spray each day for a little zhuzh.
That’s it! Nothing groundbreaking, but I just can’t recommend the Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer enough.
