I want to be able to exert the least amount of effort with my massive and frizzy lions mane that I call hair. I try to find the easiest tricks and cheats to get my hair looking presentable (see this gals review for the Revlon hair dryer hot air brush). Every so often, mainly for special events, I will attempt to style my hair with more volume and curls. I spent a long weekend in New Orleans for a bachelorette party and thought this would be a perfect time to get all dolled up and fancy. I bought this product solely because it had five detachable heads that act as a traditional hair dryer, and four different brushes (round, vent, paddle, and smoothing). With limited baggage space, this product came in a convenient carrying case and seemed perfect for this quick trip. Oh how wrong could I be.
Now I will be honest, this tool may work exceptionally well with normal or fine hair types. There’s nothing normal about my hair. It’s like a chinchilla; so thick that even when I think I have it completely dried, it’s still damp at the roots and underneath. My normal hairdryer is a professional brand that not only has the appropriate amount of heat but also has great air strength. Even with this great dryer I can’t even dry it in one sitting, I have to take multiple breaks. The air strength on the BZ One-Step Hair Dryer is equivalent to using your own breath to dry your hair. To say it is weak is an understatement. I thought I could dry my hair normally and use this as a makeshift curling or smoothing iron, but it did nothing. I let the other girls in my party use it, and no one was able to achieve their desired look. It was a waste of money and space, I get more use out of the bag it came in than the actual product. As I have said, it may work on other types of hair, but if you have thick hair I would recommend staying far away from this product.
