A $25 Kmart hair gadget is getting rave reviews online, after it was likened to getting a professional blow dry at home.

Sydney hair stylist Janet Nguyen shared a review of the Kmart Rotating Hot Air Brush on her Instagram page this week, and shoppers have flocked to get their hands on the bargain beauty product.

"What?!," Janet exclaimed in the caption alongside the clip in which she is seen using the item.

"You guys wanted me to do a video on this and here it is! And I am SHOOK," she continued. "I have never in my life got myself such a cheap hair tool but it honestly gave me such amazing results!"

Other Kmart shoppers also raved about the brush, which you can also buy online via Catch.com.au, in the comments.


"Life changer! I'm not very good at blow drying my long hair and usually give up halfway through," one woman wrote.

The Kmart brush has a 40mm and 50mm barrel and three heated settings - two hot, one cool - which are why you can achieve a similar effect as a professional blow-dry.

Similar heated hairbrushes on the market in Australia cost anywhere from $149 to $799 (AUD).

A few people said it struggled on thick or corse hair, but most loved it for the "unbeatable price".

If you aren't able to get your hands on the Kmart one, there are a few other online retailers that sell similar brushes. Though we were hard pressed to find any THAT cheap. 

Though they still cost less than say the REMINGTON Hydraluxe Blow Dry Brush ($70) or GHD's rise volumising hot brush for sale on The Iconic for $280.

The ISHA Hot Air Brush currently comes in a Gift Box set for $49.99 from Amazon Australia.
