Several years ago, conditioning flat irons came out and were highly unaffordable. Some people were willing to shell out a couple hundred dollars for a ceramic-plated straightener, and even though they are still on the market, there are many more that have become way more budget-friendly. Even so, your options are usually limited to a flat iron that just straightens. When Revlon contacted me to try out their newest hair care tool, I almost said no, because it wasn’t technically a travel gadget and full-sized. It was the ultrasonic setting that was the clincher. You see, this tool will let you condition and straighten your hair from wet to dry. As you know, I’m not fond of spending much time on my hair or having to struggle with beauty tools, so the fact that I wouldn’t also have to blow dry my hair before straightening it really intrigued me.
With so many people traveling this summer to beach destinations and frequenting the pool, I thought that the Revlon Ultrasonic Straightener would cut down on hair styling time and would eliminate an item from travel bags – because I know that even though hotels usually supply hair dryers, you all still take yours.
The Revlon Triple Action Ultrasonic Conditioning Ceramic Straightener has three settings: Ultrasonic setting that helps deep condition your hair with the help of your favorite leave-in conditioner, a heat setting that straightens your hair as your regular flat-iron would and the dual setting that conditions and straightens at one time.
I decided to test this out right after a shower, when my hair was mostly wet. I towel dried it a little bit before starting. My hair is thick and stubborn, so I figured this would be one of the best situations to test it out in. As you can see, my hair was not dripping, but clearly pretty wet. In normal conditions, it would take hours for my hair to air-dry.
