Over the years, I’ve bought off-the-shelf hairdryers and eventually upgraded to a salon model dryer which has served me well however, nothing is quite like the Dyson Supersonic. My hair generally dries quickly but, boy, I can have my hair dried and styled in 15 mins max, which, not to sound over-dramatic, is quite lifechanging – The Dyson Supersonic is, hands down, the best hair dryer I’ve ever used.
What’s Included & How I Used it
You get a multitude of stylers for all hair types with the Supersonic but I mainly used the gentle air attachment, styling concentrator and flyaway attachment but you also get a diffuser and a wide-tooth comb for curly hair.
The gentle air attachment is used to diffuse the air slightly so that the air flow isn’t as intense on the scalp. I use this to quickly blast dry my hair so that I’m working with semi dried hair for styling. I move onto the styling concentrator then which is a thin nozzle attachment to help smooth and direct the hair when styling. If I have time, or if I want my hair ‘on point’, I’ll use the flyaway attachment. This is the newest attachment to the hair dryer and is an excellent tool for styling.
This tool looks daunting but it is incredibly easy to use and no hair brushes needed. The only downside to this attachment is that it can make your hair a bit flat but after using this for over a month, I’ve learned that if I use the styling concentrator first with a round brush to add volume and then run over it with the flyaway attachment I can keep the volume but loose the flyaways.
The Technical Bit
On the main body of the dryer there are 3 temperature buttons and 3 air flow buttons along with an express cooling button. You can switch between the different levels very easily. The attachments clip on magnetically so are easily interchangeable but watch your fingers as they can get quite hot if used for any period of time!
The hairdryer itself feels very light, the V9 motor, which rotates at up to 110,000 rpm, is stored in the handle of the dryer rather than the head so most of the weight is directly in your hand. I found this really helped with any pain or discomfort in my arm that I would usually get from a conventional hair dryer design, but this could also be because I’m only spending half the time styling my hair!
The flyaway attachment is the newest addition to this hairdryer and uses the Coanda effect to banish flyaways. As I mentioned in my Airwrap review, the Coanda effect is the newest technology from Dyson which refers to the curved air pressure that flows out and draws your hair to the device. The semi circle shape of this tool helps to suck the hair to the nozzle and forces the hair into a downward position ensuring those flyways get tucked back into the hair rather than poking out the top.
The Dyson Supersonic also has inbuilt controls that stops any extreme heat by monitoring the temperature 40 times every second. This will help to protect the hair from extreme heat damage. The hairdryer will also emit negative ions which helps to reduce static in the hair.
The Supersonic hair dryer is a dream, it’s so easy to use and really does what it says. Having said that, it’s still pricey and you can get some decent hair dryers out there but, if you want to save time and effort and have a really great product, I would invest.
