There have been so many hybrid hair tools in recent years that I can barely remember them all. I’ve seen products like Arc Styler, Solo Styler, Blow Brush, Esplee Straight Styler, InStyler, Insta Press, Quicky Dry Brush, and Clamp It. Although they all offer different designs, these are examples of hair styling tools that attempted to bridge the gap between various hair tools like brushes, flat irons, hair dryers, and brushes. With VoluLUXE, we have a hair styling device that is said to dry, straighten, curl, wave, and volumize all with the same tool.
Some of the highlighted features of VoluLUXE include three speed settings: high (for damp hair), low (for dry hair), and cool shot for setting the style. There is a negative ion generator that helps dry hair and combat frizz. On the other end, you’ll find a 1.25″ round brush and cool tip. Most consumers will appreciate the ample 9 foot cord.
The design and construction of VoluLUXE are better than you’ll find with other hybrid hair stylers. The makers have integrated enough features to make this a compelling option, but does it really work as advertised? In short, I think that its reviews will eventually settle in the 4 star range, with most consumers saying that it is handy and works in a variety of situations.
There are a few things you’ll want to know before using a product like this, however. Although the heat and ionic technology can help dry and reduce frizz, you can’t really use it to dry very wet hair, but rather slightly damp hair. You may also be best served to use your regular hair brush to get out all of the knots first while your hair is still wet. Then, when your hair is brushed and slightly damp, you’ll use this tool to finish styling. The motion you’ll use with VoluLUXE is more akin to using a flat iron than a brush, as you slowly move the tool along small sections of hair just as you would with a regular straightener.
I wouldn’t expect very curly hair to achieve a completely straight look, but at minimum you should be able to achieve nice curls without the frizz.
Most people will find that there is a learning curve involved with VoluLUXE, as this is a bit different than using a brush, hair dryer, or flat iron. Results may not be as dramatic as found with traditional tools, but you’ll probably spend less time styling your hair. Hair length and type will also play a role in determining how much you like VoluLUXE.
