Video Review: Hot Tools One-Step Blowout Volumizer

I've been seeing videos pop up everywhere lately about volumizing brushes, and thought hey, this sounds like it's right up my alley. I'm a pretty low maintenance hair gal. Then while at the #LDBeauty Event with London Drugs, I got a look at the new Hot Tools One-Step Blowout Volumizer in person, and knew I had to try it - this is what I need to simplify my routine! If I can manage to combine the brushing, drying and styling process all into one, I will 100% do it.

So what's this brush all about? Well, at a basic level, it's essentially a brush and blow dryer in one. But it also does all of this:

  1. Ion Technology (specifically negative ions) leaves your hair looking smooth, while also helping reduce frizz and static for shiny healthy-looking hair
  2. Silkglide Boartech Bristles gently grip your hair to reduce breakage while creating volume and shine
  3. Thermaglide Ceramic Coating helps to give even heat distribution and healthy-looking shine
  4. Refresh Activated Charcoal gives your 2nd day hair a fresh boost, by attracting toxins and dirt
Watch the video below for a full walkthrough of how to use it and my first impressions! And keep reading below for more thoughts...



Usually, I let my hair dry part way, then I'll brush it through (with far too much of my hair getting ripped out unfortunately...), then I'll dry it with my hair dryer before sweeping my flat iron over my dry hair. After using the Hot Tools Blowout Volumizer, I'd say it does a pretty great job of rolling all of those steps into one!

I started off on the 'Low' setting, as that's what was recommended for fine hair, but I ended up boosting it to the 'High' setting part way through because I was a little impatient. The 'High' setting sped things way up, just as I'd hoped! Super quick blowout. There's also a 'Cool' setting meant for setting your style.

My hair wasn't hugely blown out after using the brush, but to be honest, I'm not surprised because my hair is very fine and never gets much volume. That being said, it did give some much-needed volume to the hair around my hairline in the front. I was more excited about how smooth and sleek my hair looked like after using the brush! I usually don't get that kind of sleekness without using my flat iron after I blow dry.

At $89.99 (it's on sale at London Drugs for $79.99 right now!), it's definitely a deal, considering it can effectively eliminate the need for multiple other hair tools!

Have you given a volumizer brush a try? If you've got any styling tips, I'd love to hear them below.


Happy Styling! xo
