Even a beauty novice knows the importance of the best hair dryers. And when it comes to best sellers, this one particular hot brush is a top-rated viral sensation.

The Revlon One Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is so popular that it's consistently in Amazon's top 10 best selling beauty products, and has racked up more than 171 thousand reviews over the years.

Simultaneously drying and styling your hair for added volume, Revlon's hot brush takes a lot of the fuss out of styling – smoothing and detangling your hair while you style, with a rounded brush head for added volume.

The brush comes with three different heat settings so that you can tailor your styling to your preference, plus a swivel cord so you don't get all tangled up.

Of the 171,000 Amazon reviews, an impressive 80% have left five stars for this wonder brush, with users praising how quickly and easily it styles their hair.

"I was super skeptic about buying this as my hair is very thick coarse wavy and frizzy," reads one. "Only good quality straighteners and dryers work on my hair even even those take very long time.

"I suck at hair styling and I wanted a product that cut the time in half without making my hair more frizzy. This was perfect for that! I am able to do the job in half the time and I am able to use this more efficiently than the usual hair dryer."

The famous hot brush that simultaneously dries and styles your hair for a volumized finish.

Another five-star reviewer adds, "I have fine, curly hair but a lot of it that is prone to frizz. I bought this solely due to the reviews and wow, it did not disappoint!

"I really didn't expect this to work and while I fully expected my hair to get caught and tangled in it, it straightens my hair *almost* without needing to curl it with an iron and it NEVER tangles my hair. I have burnt my hand once or twice on where I hold it but overall, I can't believe how wonderfully it works. SOOOO happy with it."

Well, who are we to argue with almost 140 thousand sets of five stars?
