- 2 in 1
Solo Styler is a new two in one split barrel styler that functions as a styling brush. There are two designs in one. You can straighten, curl, or add volume faster. .
You get interlocking bristles on the inside which grip your hair sections perfectly, keeping them in place and preventing them from slipping out. The bristles move through wet or tangled hair with ease. .
The ceramic barrel will absorb and retain heat from your dryer so that you get dry hair faster.
- Better Results
Reduce frizz and create shiny, silky, fuller hair.
- One Tool
You do not have to struggle with damaging flat irons or ordinary brushes. Instead, you can create flips, wavy curls, or a straightener with volume. Purportedly, when you are done using this tool your hair will look as though you just left a salon with professional quality. .
- Ionic Technology
Ionic nylon core bristles comb wet or tangled hair. So you can use it wet or dry. The interlocking bristles keep hair sections perfectly in place. What’s more, the ionic ceramic barrel absorbs heat and helps to dry faster. It also lists your hair from the roots to add the most volume.
Solo Styler is a round brush and a wet to dry straightening tool. This means that in lieu of traditionally having to blow dry your hair, then straighten it, and finally add the right curl or flip, this does it all.
- Safer for Hair
It is safer for your hair because it does not apply the same amount of hot air or tools. By limiting the number of tools you use on your hair, you can limit the damage that the hair endures.
- Need a Dryer
While it claims to use no power, it also relies upon heat produces by a hair dryer, heat that is on your hair, to work. The advertisement claims that the heat in your hair is trapped and used to straighten. This means that the unit, while it can be used on wet or dry hair, does not actually dry your hair while it works, which is a tad misleading. Instead, you still need a hair dryer, but it helps you to style your hair as you are drying it with one tool instead of two.
How it's Different from Competitors
For starters, the Solo Styler is a great piece if you regularly use the round barrel brush to help add volume to your hair while straightening. Most modern straighteners can be used to add shine, volume, flips, and curls. There are also combination curling irons / straighteners. You can even find combination straighteners/hair dryers or straighteners that turn wet hair into dry, straight hair.
So that being said, this unit makes the claim that using regular straighteners with the ceramic plates leaves hair flat, which in some cases is true. As such, those who tend to favor the barrel brush with their hair dryer to add volume, can straighten at the same time. There are special ceramic plates built underneath the nylon bristles. These shorter bristles on the inside of the brush hold your hair in place while it straightens. Bristles on the perimeter are taller and let you use it as just a barrel brush if you choose, while drying your hair.
How to Use (Step by Step)
- Get the Dryer
Start by plugging in a blow dryer. .
If you want to use the straightening feature, press the button to open the barrel. Take small pieces of your hair and dry them / straighten them by running the brush through with the hair dryer over.
Should you instead wish to just use the barrel brush component, leave it shut and brush away while you blow dry your hair.
In theory, those who want to be able to get volume as they straighten and are looking into a straightener and barrel brush combination can save money if they buy this instead. Of course, those who already have both might only save money insofar as replacements are concerned.
In theory, with this one unit, those who normally use a hair dryer with barrel brush and then a flat iron can save time by using one unit not two. Purportedly, using this unit will cut your drying and styling time in half due to the fact that you can do both simultaneously and the Solo Styler re-uses the heat from the dryer. This gives you two forms of heat at once.
- Ceramic Ion Straighteners
There are many ceramic ion straighteners on the market today. These do not cause the same type of damage referred to in this advertisement because they restore damaged hair. Ceramic ion straighteners can be expensive compared to cheaper production models, but they all serve as a tool for straightening, curling, and styling hair. What’s more, modern ceramic ion straighteners dry your hair while they straighten, so you can use it on wet hair without adding a blow dryer. This reduces the number of harsh styling tools you are using on your hair.
- Straightening Brush
There are now similar straightening brushes which have the nylon bristle set up. These have a ceramic plate underneath for straightening and producing the heat needed to dry your hair. They also have bristles that brush through the hair while doing so, and let you neatly add volume and style. One sided though, they do not lock over hair like round barrel brushes do or the split ceramic plates of a straightener.
Does It Really Work?
Overall, yes it really works. However, it still requires you to blow dry your hair. In most cases just using a blow dryer properly can add the same type of volume. If using the blow dryer in the right direction, it can reduce frizz too. That said, after a blow dryer, or even in lieu of, consumers can still use a straightener to obtain the same results purportedly offered by the Solo Styler. The hair benefits offered by the ceramic ion in the styler are the same that can be found in most straighteners today.
