    I was much closer to 1.5 to 2in than 3in or 4in sections. I split my hair in 4s and then split those sections in 2-3 more smaller sections and ended up with pretty straight hair...roots on down.

    It’s beautiful and thick!! Next time, see if natural85’s method will work; keep the bottom of the section in the first part of the dryer for a bit before moving it up. My hair also did very well with low heat first and then high heat. So far, my best results were when using Kerastase Nutri-thermique. Later this week, I am going to try the Aveda brilliant heat protectant on one side and the Aveda mousse on the other side.

    Thank you! I will try N85's method next time and well as the Kerastase product. Was it this one? I'll put that on my list as well as the Aveda brilliant. Lylddlebit also mentioned the CC Alterna 10-in-one cream in this thread and her results look amazing, so I'm throwing that on the list too.

    Let us know how your next go-round goes!

    Okay.

    I was keeping the boxes in case i needed to return the dryer, but I am officially forever sold.

    My hair got as straight as my last flat iron and it feels so unbelievably soft. I'm in awe. I didn't take many pictures because I started my wash day at 6 pm and was rushing to get it done, but I may share later. I also didn't get to time it but I'd estime 1.5 to 2 hours drying time. My hair is incredibly thick and it took 3 hours to use the tension method by comparison.

    I'll post my thoughts later today. I'm just now getting to the wash of my wash day so I'll dry it after I wake up in the morning.

    @Nini90012 My hair started reverting from yesterday and since it’s rainy this morning... it’s a wrap :lachen:

    But honestly it probably has to do with the products I used so idk. I like the dryer and it did do what it was supposed to do. However, in my experience so far as a natural...... my hair poofs up after using heat. Still trying to figure out why that is.

    One of my DD's hair is the same so I'm wondering if it's certain hair types that do this? DD's hair has started reverting some but it would do the exact same after a silk press done at the salon that cost $60 or so with tons of products and silky straight hair after.
    My other DD's hair would last for weeks with a silk press (until I was ready to wash again) so I'll have to see how her hair holds up with this.

    I am not the best judge of the lasting results because I flat ironed the next morning(not included in the photos since my review focused on the revair part). However my results remained for around 14 hours when I did finish straightening. I want this to be a blow dryer replacement so my use will be more towards how it dries my hair before straightening than a revair stretch as a stand alone. If I judge how my hair lasted before I finished straightening it was pretty comparable to blow drying. I didn't shrink any more than blow drying would have. The only negative was that when I did get ready to flat iron I had to comb from ends to roots again because, like @syrk described, using product clumped some strands together during the drying process(not tangles though just clumps that were simple to comb out form ends to roots) which I had to correct before the chase method with flat ironing. I also had to straighten smaller sections when I flat ironed for smooth results.

    I haven’t gotten it professionally done yet, but I do plan to do it just to see how it holds up. I think part of it is that my hair is resistant since I don’t use heat often. It unfortunately takes a lot of heat for my hair to even get relatively straight.

    No I didnt get poofiness, especially along top where it's tight under my scarf. That area stayed pretty close to day 1, but my bun/ends had more volume. All in all, it wasnt as straight as it was day 1, but that could've been moisture cream/oil combo as I was trying to put some moisture back in.

    I also only sustain straight if I go to my stylist who uses something that blocks the humidity and flat irons my hair.

    I got caught in the rain Saturday, so its in in twists now.

    Thank you for your responses. My hair usually poofs after blowdrying and/or flat ironing when done at home. I recently had it professionally cut and silk pressed, and it remained straight for weeks! I noted she washed with Keracare and conditioned with Kenra. I couldnt get the name of the spray she used before blow drying or the serum used before flat ironing. Next time I will write down the name of EVERY product she uses. After weeks of beautifully straightened hair, my hair reverted perfectly when washed at home.
    (Although now Im back to below shoulder blade just above brastrap length.)
    Maybe if the same products are used with the Revair it will remain straight....

    I dont know. I'm not wearing my hair out. My hair is up in my usual flat twists. My flat twists still look great from Wednesday. My hair is still soft and I haven't out anything else on it since wednesday. My roots still feel good. I could probably moisturize and out it back up but I will probably shampoo and start the process all over.

    I do believe products make a really big difference.

    This dryer is a game changer for me. I never liked the idea of repeatedly brushing while drying the old way. I blew my hair out in 8 sections and tried it first on level 2 low heat. This setting did not get my hair as straight so I went to level 7 high heat. My hair was straighter and not hot or really warm to the touch like with my Revlon blow dry brush. Roots were dry too. I want to try it with Kenra blow dry spray. Once I get the hang of it, my results should be better.

    I wear my hair up during the day and at night (small clipped up bun) for work so it hasn't reverted.

    I'll likely wear it out on Friday so I'll let you know the state of it then.

    I don't usually get much reversion unless my hair is incredibly dry after blow drying or I use the wrong products. With how my hair feels now I don't expect reversion.

    Mannnnn look I was ready to pack this thing back up but uhhh :lachen:
    [​IMG]


    Hair was in 14 sections. Total completion time was 1 hour exactly (including detangling each section & applying heat protectant, drying, pass through with fine tooth comb and twisting section back up, and taking pictures).

    Nape - 2 sections: Fine hair, tried low 5 setting on one section (pic below) & low 7 on the other. Preferred low 7.
    Crown - 6 sections: Coarse hair, did low 7 on lower half for 30 seconds then high 7 on entire length for 1 minute.
    Front - 6 sections: Fine and coarse hair, did low 7 on fine sections, coarse sections did low 7 on lower half for 30 seconds then high 7 on entire length for 1 minute.
    When I used high heat, my hair and scalp would feel warm to the touch once I took my hair out. Didn't lose much hair throughout the process. See my pics below.
    I didn't want to like it y'all but I just might :cry3: :rofl:

    Wow I really butchered the name of the Kerastase protectant I used. Lol. Yes, that is the one. I tried three of them and that one made my hair feel the best so far.

    I ageee that @Lylddlebit results were amazing. Once I test all of my heat protectants with the dryer, I will buy that one.

    How wet is the hair before using the dryer? Dripping wet straight from shower, towel dried? Or did anyone start with dry hair and mist the hair and added products?

    Water squeezed out with hands only then product applied for me. The only sections that dried/almost dried were sections that air dried were sections that I got distracted from after sectioning but I moistened those back before using the revair.

    I kept my hair mostly wet as I followed naptural85 (think that's her name) process of aloe/water spray, leave in and heat protectant. I think the combo of products used, size of sections, too many seconds on high dried my hair out some, so I have had to put moisture back in....but my hair was also really straight.

    I'm going to wash again tomorrow with another combo and mostly on low.

    I wonder how well this dryer would work on twists ? Like could you do small twist and with Shea butter in the revair would it give you straighter roots and super strerched twists that would show more length? Or if you did bigger sections or braids would it dry just as fast so you could have a completely dry set twist out or braid out on day 1?
