Characteristics including volume, texture, thickness, length and hair health play a role in how hair will react to reverse-air and heat settings.
Reverse-Air Speed (Dial on Base): Higher settings will provide more tension, but not all hair types – even curly and coily - need higher tension for best results. If hair doesn’t need a high setting, it may not tolerate a high setting.
To find your most effective speed, we recommend testing a wet section of hair on a tension dial setting of "2" for 10 seconds. Check to make sure there are no tangles beginning to form at the ends of the hair before moving up to next tension dial "3" for another 10 seconds. Repeat the process, increasing in tension dial setting, until you find the level that gives your hair the best results.
If at any point tangling occurs, turn the dial back down by 1 tension setting - this is your tension dial setting for best results.
Heat (Toggle on Wand): RevAir uses much less heat than blow dryers to get the job done. High heat (II) is only 800 watts and Low heat (I) is 400 watts. We recommend you experiment with both settings to find what’s best for you. If you like to finish on cold when blow-drying, you can achieve a “cold or cool shot” by completely turning off the heat (O) to help seal down the cuticle for the last 5-10 seconds of each section.
