Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The iPhone of Blowdryers I like to say. The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer came like a storm through the hair industry as the must have tool with its lightweight and sleek design. Leaving the traditional bulky blow dryer kicked to the curb. 

The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is engineered to protect hair from extreme heat damage, with fast drying and controlled styling to help increase smoothness by 75%, increase shine by up to 132% and decrease frizz and flyaways by up to 61%.*

The Dyson promised to be the best of all hair drying tools and with a professional model available, this hair dryer had everybody saving up to buy one with it’s $400 price tag.

I was skeptical at first being faithful to my BabylissPRO Rapido Dryer that takes on a more traditional design but lightweight.  However the majority of stylists in my salon had ditched their old dryer for a Dyson. So when I finally got the chance to use one. i jumped at it.

Here are my thoughts…


Design 

Honestly, I’m not a fan of the shape. It definitely takes some time adjusting to the balance of weight if you’re used to holding a traditional dryer with a nozzle. But that was to be expected. The Dyson being light weight but top heavy, means the handle is the only way to hold the Dyson to control it. Which may take some getting used to if you like to hold the nozzle on a traditional dryer.

However, I do love the magnetic concentrator attachments for the dryer. Their very quick to interchange with no fuss and they stay on securely. They also have a cooling pad for the attachments to not burn your furniture. It’s clear that everything was designed to be hassle, free yet effective.

Heat 

Definitely packs a hot punch for a little guy. Almost too hot sometimes. Although they say the product is engineered to protect the hair from damage, if not used properly, the highest heat setting could definitely do some harm. The Dyson gets very hot. Hotter than most blowdryers I’ve experienced. Which in some cases can be very useful but definitely not necessary to produce a beautiful blow dry. This should go without saying but you should always use a heat protectant when applying heat to the hair especially at a high setting.

Overall

I do like the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer but I’m not in love it. The shape was enough to not make me get one. My hands are just not here for adjusting to the design especially if I’m in the salon and need to get blow dries done quickly. I’m sure if I had more time with it I would get used to it but with other dryers out there that costs less and provides the same results, I’m no hurry to get one. But don’t get me wrong it’s definitely a quality dryer with a lot of power for a small design.
