I don't know why it took the beauty world so long to come up with hot air brushes. I love my curls now, but back in the day, I would kill my arms double-fisting a round brush and 15-pound blowdryer in the pursuit of a shiny blowout. Now, securing the bag (smooth hair) is as easy as running a hot brush through your hair and letting it do the work. Revlon's One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is the reigning champ, but Bed Head's version is on sale for even less money — and it's so good, reviewers say they're "honestly mad about how well this thing works."
"This is now the only thing I use," continued the shopper. "It dries my very thick, medium length, coarse-wavy hair in HALF the time, and leaves my hair soft and smoother than when I have flat ironed it." That kind of passion isn't easy to evoke, but the hot air brush gets there with its volumizing mix of bristles and three heat settings. It's normally priced at $60, but in the wake of Cyber Monday, the tag is slashed 62 percent, bringing it down to $23. I know.
Other people echo the shock and awe at how well Bed Head's One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumizer Hot Air Brush works, with even professional hairstylists leaving comments speaking to the impressive results. "This dryer is SO much better than the Revlon One-Step," they wrote. Where the Revlon's larger size and weight turned them off, the Bedhead has a more streamlined profile and lighter heft and works more quietly, so they "jumped on" a previous $30 sale ASAP.

Astoundingly, the praise mounts from there. "This hot air brush made me cry, but in an amazing way. After spending YEARS trying to re-create the salon blow-out, I've always failed miserably, but after using this thing I cried tears of joy," wrote a shopper with super thick, "extremely" frizzy hair in a review titled, "love this hot air brush a little more than my husband, lol." Their old routine would take over an hour, they said, plus added time for straightening with a flat-iron — but just like Fleetwood Mac, they're never going back again.
"In 30 minutes of using this, my hair was completely dry with NO frizzing, and I looked like I just stepped out of a hair salon," they concluded. "It's so soft, and [the brush] doesn't make my hair smell burnt like hair dryers and straighteners do. I'm madly in love with this tool and it's so easy to use. I never leave reviews on stuff, but I needed to preach the gospel on this little gem."
Others go on to call the "amazing" tool the best $40 they've ever spent, so its reduced price is one to jump on. The deal is so good that the brush is temporarily sold out, but you can still order now — and based on the reviews, you'll be thanking yourself as soon as it arrives. Get the Bed Head brush for $23 on Amazon in a last hurrah for Cyber Week sales.
