Once my hair was completely dry, the stylist went through each section using the StyleMax SinglePass Flat Iron to finish. I think the blow dryer made it easier for the flat iron to pass through, which it did in one to two quick passes per section. The brand promises “better results with less damage” and indeed, both hair tools left me with a sleek blowout that was shiny, soft and frizz-free. Since it was a full salon service, it did take a bit longer than when I style my hair at home. But even if you remove the flat iron portion, drying my entire head took under an hour, which rarely happens.
Does the T3 Style Max Duo *Really* Work On Curly Hair?
It’s simple enough to do a blowout on my hair, but the ultimate test was trying this bad boy on my curls. I’ll admit, it took a minute to figure out how to get the diffuser attachment onto the tool. Thankfully, each attachment has a small triangle symbol at the base that indicates where to line it up with the dryer so you can just snap it in place. Once I figured that out, I was able to try both the automatic and manual settings before settling on the best way to dry my hair.
The hair tool felt lightweight in my hands, which made it comfortable to move around my head. I’ve used various diffusers in the past, and my hair often gets stuck in the prongs, so I appreciate that this attachment did its job in blowing air throughout my hair without causing any tangles or knots.
Would you believe me when I say it took about 30 to 45 minutes to completely dry my hair? I alternated between the medium and high heat settings, and tried the lock-in cool shot button to finish, which made my curls frizz-free and shiny. Since it’s designed with a wide airflow and has massive horsepower (aka 125 voltage and 1875 watts), it makes sense why it worked quickly. After running my fingers through my roots, I found that my hair was fully dry and ready for the day.
