Since I was a child, I have had a complicated relationship with my hair. I have a lot and it is very thick, frizzy and curly. Every time I walked into a salon, the stylists would say, “I’ve never seen so much hair before,” and that made me feel very self-conscious. Still, no matter how much my mother dried and straightened it, it never looked the way I wanted it to; instead, it looked big and fluffy.
My mom blew my hair until I was a teenager because I just couldn’t do it myself. He had too much and he didn’t have enough patience. Once I was too old for my mom to do my hair, I reluctantly combed it, but it was a nightmare. In college, I used to beg my friends to fix it because I just couldn’t deal with the process.
That annoyance continued for years until recently, when I discovered my new holy grail item: the Drybar Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush ($ 150). Knowing the price of this product, I made sure to do my research before buying. I considered cheaper alternatives, but the negative reviews put me off, and since I’ve been very lucky with Drybar products in the past, I thought it was worth a try.
After just one use of the Double Shot blow dryer, my life changed forever, and I’m not exaggerating. Now when I blow-dry my hair, it looks like I just came from the salon. My hair is silky smooth and straight but still with a bit of volume. I don’t even need to use a hair straightener afterwards.
The beauty of this tool is that it is a brush, hair dryer, and styler in one, making it easier to use than your regular blow dryer and round brush. I have found better results using Drybar Double Shot when you prep your hair with heat protectant and whatever other pre-styling product you would like to use, let it air dry so it doesn’t get soggy and then section it into one. Inch sections to begin drying.
Then all you need to do is turn the dryer to your preferred heat setting (most professionals recommend 350 degrees) and simply brush the tool through your hair until it’s dry. It takes me less than 45 minutes to fix my entire head, which, compared to the two hours it takes with normal blow dryers, is incredibly fast. My favorite part is that you are drying and brushing your hair at the same time, allowing you to style on the go and keep your hair soft. It also saves a lot of time.
In the end, I have extremely silky, smooth, frizz-free hair, and the results are consistent every time. I feel so much more confident and organized now that I found the Double Shot hairdryer. No more puffy and difficult to maintain hair.
If you’re also someone who has trouble drying or styling your hair at home or just want a quicker and easier solution to your current routine, the Double Shot Dryer Brush might be what you’ve been looking for.
