Back in April, Dyson announced that they were launching a hairdryer.
Yes! A hair dryer from Dyson, the very same company that revolutionized vacuum cleaners, hand dryers, fan, heater, to name a few.
I’ve been a long-time advocate of Dyson household appliances and hands down is obsessed with their wireless hand held vacuum cleaner. I use it for my 2 bedroom apartment, my car, on my furniture and it has changed my perception with your traditional vacuum cleaners and the boring house cleaning chore.
Anyway, I digress.
Today, I will be reviewing the brand new Dyson Supersonic hairdryer. It retails for AUD$699 which is significantly more expensive than the standard price range of top hairdryers in the current market which sits within the $150-$200 range.
But then again, so is their vacuum cleaners in comparison to what’s in the market and there are hands down the best I have used. Any pet owners will agree with me on this.
Before I start with my review, here is a quick rundown of my current hair situation.
- I wash my hair on a daily basis – because I work out 5-6 days a week and I sweat a lot.
- I have oily scalp, no amount of dry shampoo can help and I just love the clean and fresh feel after a hair wash.
- I used to have ’longer than waist long’ hair but now have mid length hair that ends in front of my chest.
- I usually wash my hair late at night after my workouts hence it is important to completely dry my hair before bed so I won’t make up with knotted, frizzy hair.
How Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer has won me over with just over a week of use:
- It is lightweight, no matter what position you hold it in, it doesn’t feel heavy and my arms/shoulders certainly didn’t feel sore.
- It more than halved the time for a traditional hairdryer to dry my hair vs Dyson Supersonic, thanks to its high velocity airflow technology. It takes Dyson to dry my hair from roots to ends in 3 minutes and 18 seconds and it takes my traditional hair dryer 7 minutes and 49 seconds to do the same.
- It doesn’t burn my scalp even if I were to hold the hairdryer in the same position with maximum power and heat directed to my scalp.
- Even with the highest heat + power, it doesn’t feel ‘hot’. With the controlled temperature, my hair finishes with a glorious shine, every single time when I blow dry!
- I could still maintain a conversation whilst blow drying my hair, there is still noise but noticeably quieter than traditional hairdryer.
- At just 0.62kg, this is perfect for even on-the-go and travelling use as it is compact enough in weight and in design.
- Comes with 3 magnetic attachments (Smoothing nozzle, Styling concentrator & Diffuser) for quick styling purposes. I personally uses the hairdryer without any attachment for a quick once-over blow dry and finish off with the smoothing nozzle mostly around the crown and fringe area.
Who I think won’t give in to this:
- Price point – before understanding the technology and years of research put behind this hair dryer unfortunately, there will always be those people who will just say it’s “too expensive for a hair dryer and that they can’t justify paying for it”.
- People who wash their hair once a week simply because they won’t get the best ROI.
- People who have all the time in the world and don’t mind a heavy hairdryer.
- People with short, short hair.
Last but not least, let’s be honest this is a really cool piece of technology driven beauty/home product that will last a very long time and will serve me a very long time to come (as Dyson products always do for me). The design is unique, revolutionary and most importantly beautiful to look at and to currently sits proudly on my dressing table.
Please excuse my dirty mirror, this was finger blow dry with Dyson Supersonic hairdryer and look at the shiny and smooth finish.
If you wash your hair everyday and have long hair, you will know how I struggled in the past just to dry my hair during winter in Melbourne. Let’s just say those will be distant memories from the past in no time!
