THE TIK TOK BRUSH AND OLAPLEX NO.3 HAIR PERFECTOR! Is it worth the hype?

Updated: Feb 5, 2021

So guys, I caved in, I saw the infamous Tik Tok Revlon Hair Dryer Brush was in stock on Amazon and I bought it! And I must have been feeling spontaneous because I also bought Olaplex Treatment No.3 Hair perfector.


They arrived the very next day and first impressions were neutral.






The Olaplex bottle is TINY. I was warned this from a couple of my friends but I was assured it is worth the money and you only need to use a small amount.


The Revlon Hair Dryer Brush on the other hand is huge, it is the size of a small cantaloupe melon, but it is very easy to hold, not too heavy and a stylish design.


Lets talk about Olaplex first, you apply this product on towel dried hair, BEFORE shampooing and conditioning. On the bottle it advises leaving the treatment on for 10 minutes but you can leave it on for longer. Some of my hairdressing friends even leave it on overnight. I decided to leave it on for ten minutes (as I was already in the shower) I then washed my hair with my normal shampoo and conditioner, without putting on any other special treatments, so I could see the full effect of exactly how this product works. It also smells beautiful.


Now it's time to dry the hair, the Revlon Hair Dryer brush has been talked about a lot over 2020 and is still making waves (get it?) in 2021. It boasts the ability to smooth the hair, create volume at the roots and beautifully curled ends - no need to use another appliance to get waves, do it in less time and with less damage. Designed to distribute air quickly and evenly to the hair to dry and style faster for less heat damage, negative ions saturate the airflow to reduce the size of water droplets for faster drying. This helps condition, smooth and makes hair shinier, while reducing frizz and static. Ceramic coating makes for more even heat distribution and less damage. It has a mixture of bristles, nylon pin bristles with comfortable ball tips to softly detangle hair. Mixed nylon pin and boar bristles help grip hair on curved edge for improved volume and control for smooth, shiny results. The specs are: 3 Heat Settings, 2 Speed Settings Ergonomic Handle, Cool Tip and Lightweight Design Tangle-Free Swivel Cord and even better, a 4 Year Limited Warranty.


It has two heat settings and one cool setting. Now, I am not great at styling my own hair but I think with a bit of practice this is going to be my go to. This hair dryer brush is AMAZING! It takes a fraction of the time to style a full bouncy blow dry than it would if you were using a barrel brush and hair dryer, or a curling iron. It is one of the best things I've ever bought, I would recommend this product 1000%.


The one tip I would give is to give extra attention to the roots as they don't dry as fast and the brush doesn't get as close to the scalp unless you hold it there for a few seconds to dry.


Right, my hair is done now, and it looks AMAZING! I cannot tell you how pleased I am with Olaplex and Revlon. The No.3 perfector has left my hair feeling rejuvenated, soft and looking healthy. It's without a doubt worth the money and I'm so glad I have joined the Olaplex world.


Would I buy these two products again? YES!
