    Yikes! @LiLi I just looked up the Kerastase Intialiste product and its $51. It claims to "strengthen and grow hair fibers by restoring uniformity and smoothness" pretty serious claims, did it work for you?

    I have used it every week for the past 4-5 weeks and my hair reverts with no problem. I am seeing only one piece of breakage vs. when I used a regular blow dryer using the tension method where I see tons of little pieces. My hair also feels smooth and doesn’t stick together and get matted as it normally would when I air dry. However, I haven’t and wouldn’t flat iron every week.

    I am a Kerastase groupie. Lmbo. I have used their products for over a decade. As far as this product, I haven’t used it consistently enough to know if it does everything it claims. However, with the RevAir, I can really test it out to see. Also, I only buy their products when they have a 20% off sale. Lol.

    I agree. This year, I found out by accident that I do NOT need to use a leave in. But that's after years of working on my protein moisture balance.

    I detangled my hair using Aussie moist miracle moisture conditioner and then I shampooed my scalp with Pantene natural shampoo. After that, I towel dried my hair and applied chi silk serum to each section. I went straight for high heat (only 800 watts which is way lower than my silver bird blow fryer) and tension level 7. I kept checking to see if I had put it on high heat because it didn't feel hot at all. I left the hair in for about a minute and dabbed at the roots. My hair is completely dry but it doesn't feel like a brillow pad. It's soft as if I did a flat iron on 300 degrees with my babyliss.

    So here are my pros and cons

    Pros:
    • Dries hair without leaving it feeling brittle and dried out
    • Leaves hair feeling soft
    • Straightens hair depending on tension level
    • Doesn't burn scalp
    • Highest heat setting is only 800 watts so lessens chances of heat damage
    • Dries roots
    • No to low manipulation (other than detangling)
    • Doesn't create smoke
    • Works on different hair lengths (I'm growing out an undercut in the back)
    Cons:
    • Heavy
    • Very loud
    • Hose can be difficult to grip with product on your hands

    I see a lot of people say that they can get similar results with a regular blow dryer but nothing compares to revair simply because of the low wattage and low manipulation. This device is revolutionary. I would especially recommend it to people like me that suffer from single strand knots caused by shrinkage and shed hairs. Just think of the breakage that can be eliminated by stretching the hair with this device. Revair has completely won me over. This was by far the best hair investment of 2018.

    Also, they now offer AfterPay. It’s basically easy pay broken up into four payments.

    I am so annoyed at this moment. Finally decide to use this thing and it doesn’t even turn on..

    Tried the little fuse button and every outlet in the house, y’all. It turns blue, but does not turn on. I am pissed enough that I need to go read my bible.

    Thankfully, I am right at the end of my 30 days. I’m not sure if I’ll be asking for a replacement or just returning.

    At least give customer service a chance to walk you through it. It sounds like something may not be complete connected. Maybe the triangle piece is seated properly. They may extend it if you call them.

    @Kookookiwi Please try giving customer service a call they were very helpful to me and I should have called them much sooner than I did instead of allowing myself to become frustrated.

    I used my unit again today. I blow dried larger sections on a tension setting of 6 on cool for 1 minute. Surprisingly most of my hair was dry in 1 minute. I can probably reduce it to 5o seconds. It wasn't as straight as if I blow dried on high heat but it was stretched enough for me to wear a stretched style which is all I really need.

    After blow drying I sprayed my hair with Mane Magic Oil and moisturized with TGIN and put my hair up into 9 flat twists. It may have taken me a hour all together.

    I'm still watching to see if I can blow dry on cool this often. I will be watching my ends for the next month. My hair feels good though. It feels nice and soft.

    @Kookookiwi This happened with my device as well. Check to be sure the filter is installed correctly and reconnecting the triangular piece...also press the red/yellow reset/test button on the plug.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement ladies. I was a little shaky connecting the filter and triangle piece so I will definitely recheck both. If that doesn’t work I’ll try customer service.

    I had planned a stretched style for New Year’s Eve and I’m going out of town so I was beyond frustrated to have to change my hair plans last minute. Fingers crossed it’s an easy fix with the connections.

    @Kookookiwi Yes the same thing actually keeps happening to me because I don’t connect the triangular piece right. If the light is coming on, nine times out of 10, it’s because something isn’t connected right. Don’t give up!! Their customer service is awesome and, from my experience, they answer emails on the weekends as well.

    I agree with everything you said! I like my hair feeling stretched but it feels dry when I air dry and I usually see breakage because I haven’t found another leave-in to replace Silk Dreams. Also, because it dries my hair so quickly, it’s not a chore as it was when I used a regular blow dryer. So I don’t need to set aside a lot of time since I mostly use it on my crown, due to the rest of my hair being plaited. This is definitely my best hair purchase of 2018!!

    Thank you for the information! Once I use up all of my heat protectants, I will try the chi serum again. I used to use it back in my relaxed days. Wow I can’t believe the wattage is only 800? Is there even a chance of getting heat damage with this? I agree, it definitely softens the hair as if I did a flat iron on a low temp.

    I feel like I'm in danger of using it too much because the wattage is so low. It's addictive

    That is great that the cool setting is working for you! I can’t wait to hear your updates for the next month.

    I used my RevAir again last night. It makes my 3rd time and I still love it. I think this will help with my relaxer stretching.

    When you all registered for the warranty, did you get a confirmation email?

    I returned my RevAir today. Its not that I didn't like it but it is just too big and bulky. In the end I didn't think I would end up using it often enough to get my return on investment.

    I have been getting my hair professionally straightened once a month and it stays straight. This was a good option for washing my hair in between but it was a pain to store due to the size.

    After talking with one of the reps, she mentioned a smaller version would be coming out in Spring of 2019. Glad to hear everyone else is getting great results!!

    I used it today on one small section of hair. It was dry so I wet the hair and then used it on 7 and high heat. It came out dry after 30 seconds. I'm shocked how stretched it was and my hair felt pretty smooth despite needing a good cut. Based on this I'm keeping it. It will be good for getting accurate trims and braiding.
