    My hair is still super soft :love:
    I left my hair in the twists I put in after drying and I've just been pulling it all into a bun for work. I haven't noticed any reversion yet but today will be the test as it is raining the rest of the evening.

    Ive been waiting for a review on a washngo. I gotta say I liked her hair better before it was stretched. I guess I would most likely want to use this on braidouts and twistouts.

    After a week of having the Revair I finally opened it and used it on my DD Monday night. She washes and blow dries (or has me do it) her hair every week. She just wants it stretched for her Bantu knot outs. Her hair is in the 4s but with very little curl definition so it detangles way easier than mine and straightens easier. I used low heat and a 3 tension setting and her hair got just as straight or a little straighter than using the Revlon paddle dryer. (To which there is NO COMPARISON, in my book. The Revlon gets so hot I have had heat damage using it on my hair and seeing broken hairs in the bristles hurts my heart.) It was SUCH A RELIEF to blow dry her hair and have NO hairs on the floor or in a brush. I truly think this will change the game for us, especially her since blow drying is such a big part of her regimen. I am so happy I bought this and can’t wait to use it on my hair this weekend. I think I’ll try to use it on high to get the maximum straightening. Will come back and update after I use it on myself.

    Review time!
    Time: It took me under 2 hours to dry my hair, and I know that I will be able to go faster, because I spent too long on sections. Being under 2 hours is amazing for me. With a normal dryer, it took me 2x as long with worse results.

    Process: Blow drying is usually super annoying, and I generally do not have anymore patience to flat iron correctly. This process was super easy and I just relaxed and watch a movie while blowdrying vs. having to concentrate on my hair. I was not sweating from hot air blowing on me. Lost a nickel size amount of hair, and my hair is past waist length and natural.

    Results: My hair was super straight, soft and has body.

    I purchased the Revair and I love it!

    I blow dried my hair the day before yesterday before going to get it braided. I washed with Camille Rose Sweet Ginger Shampoo, deep conditioned under my Pibbs dryer for 30 mins with Joico Moisture Recovery and applied Abba leave in conditioner and Etae Buttershine. I also did a full strength & full length henna treatment overnight on Sunday (~12+ hours) and indigo on the roots on Monday.

    To prep my hair I sectioned it in half down the middle and put 5 twists in each section. I used the dryer on each strand of each twist. If I remember correctly it took about 40 minutes. I watched Naptural's video doing her daughter's hair but I didn't end up using her process. I put it on 7 high heat and went to town. I was just trying to get done so I could get to my braiding appointment.

    My hair felt great! I'm sure a lot has to do with the buttershine though because I've really loved the feel of my hair post flat iron since switching to their products. I think though I usually notice it after the flat iron not the blow dry but the same softness.

    The process is a lot easier to me than blow drying with a comb attachment and my ends feel better. I didn't check the filter yet. I'll update this review with a photo of how much hair came out but I never felt pulling. And I believe there is less breakage than using the comb attachment. I think with practice and experimentation with products and techniques the overall outcome will only get better.

    I only have one photo. I wasn't planning to do a review until I came back to this thread and saw all the other ones. I just had to cosign. And if it wasn't for this thread I probably would have missed out on the product and the sale so here's my contribution.

    Here's the hair from the filter. It's definitely less that when I blow dry with the comb attachment. This may be my best hair purchase yet.

    Yaaay!! I am glad it worked for you!! I have always had the same experience when blow drying which is why I rarely did. It was like a waste and I was usually left with alot of breakage and very dry hair. Now with the RevAir, it’s just so easy and the results have been consistent.

    So I tried it and I really liked it a lot. It took 1.5 hours to dry and flat iron my hair. It normally takes two days to get this since I usually can’t flat iron my hair the same day without getting frizz.My hair wasn’t soft. I used the leave the she moisture silicone free miracle styler because if helps with frizz (my hair is susceptible to humidity) . I don’t have a great heat protectant now that ojon has gone out of business. It was “better” after I flat ironed it. (See picture) Any thoughts? Thanks!

    I was asked to post my weekend with the Revair here. Don't stone me if you love this product.

    Alert I have a lot of very fine hair.

    Deep conditioned, still trying out the aveda smooth infusion system. I don't have any hough until I get throgh 6 washes this is 3 I believe , I wash to infrequently that won't be for a while. No humidity its ok. I start using Sabino moisture block with it. It is good for heat protection however. I blow dried my hair here is the interesting part.

    I used a Reavir dryer for 2/3 of my head. Why? Becasue it blew an internal fuse and woldn't turn back on. Overall not really impressed. So it is better than my very poor technic brsh blow dry or com attachment yes. But it took a comb throgh of each section then a deman detail then in the Revair then pause and demnad brush through again then Revair again on each section. So it took forever. When it stopped working I picked p the Revlon blow dry brush to finish, first time twith this as well. It took a lot less tiem to finish mainly becasue I didn't have to pause and detangle. Then I had to go back over some of the revair section that weren't completely detangled. The Brushed side looked about the same as the Revair side when all was said and done. the revair side had more hang initally but then I went though and brsh the hair downward and this eve n out.

    I then flat iron my hair which went faster than usually because my hair was actually detangled. It looks really good.

    I am returning the Revair.

    (Also this is really heavy and bulky, I don't have a ton og arm muscle or anything but is cmber some to use.)

    I used my dryer today. I washed my hair a couple days ago. I did a pre-poo with the caramel treatment. I washed first with Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-frizz shampoo. Then did a protein treatment with Nexxus Polymedic Emergency Reconstructor. Then washed that out with Olaplex Bond Maintenance shampoo.

    I conditioned with Alterna Bamboo Smooth conditioner for about 15 minutes, rinsed, then deep conditioned with Joico Moisture Balm under the steamer. The Alterna conditioner doesn’t provide any deep moisture or slip for me but I believe it helps me to get smooth hair. I rinsed that out but didn’t blow dry my hair until the next day. I put my hair in 10 twists.

    For my leave-in conditioner I mixed Redken Anti-Snap with Nefertiti’s Secret leave in. For my heat protectant I mixed Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal protectant spray with Kenra Platinum blow dry spray. I used very, very small amounts of all these products.

    I first tried the Revair on low heat & setting 2. It did stretch my hair out a lot, but my hair needs high heat to get straight. The rest of the time I used setting 7 and would start on low heat first, then switch to high heat. The right side of my head I did in small sections. By the time I got to the left side, I did large sections and it worked just the same.

    My hair was not dried out or dry. My ends didn’t get too straight in the kinkier parts of my hair, but this is only my third time straightening my hair in almost 2 years. I like this dryer. I like i don’t have to do so much manipulation and don’t lose hardly any hair.

    I can get my hair very straight with a boar bristle brush and a blow dryer but I don’t like all that manipulation.

    I flat ironed & trimmed my ends after blow drying.

    I used my dryer for the second time. I think I just need a fairy godmother to come and do my hair, lol. I did about 12 sections on high heat with 7 tension. The first section in the back was done on cool because I forgot to change the setting, lol. I cowashed yesterday and used Annabelle's hair cream. This morning I thoroughly detangled with the Felicia Leatherwood brush and used Silk elements silk protection creme on each section. I used a technique similar to the one Naptural85 used on her daughter's hair.

    You have a lot of hair. 12 sections is probably not enough with that much hair. I think I had to do at least 16. But you got a decent stretch even with the bigger sections.
    I feel you on the fairy godmother.
