Expatriate Lifestyle - - December El Tries - By Caramella Scarpa

For those whose daily rou­tine in­volves dry­ing and styling your hair, have we got the gad­get for you! As some­one who has masses of disobe­di­ent hair, I have spent decades try­ing new prod­ucts and gad­gets in my quest to tame the mane. It was a rev­e­la­tion when I dis­cov­ered a hair straight­ener that ac­tu­ally worked, which also made me re­alise that in­vest­ing in a good hair styling ap­pli­ance makes much more sense.

Which brings us to the Dyson Su­per­sonic™ – a hair dryer that not only breaks the de­sign mould and sounds like a tiny jet plane tak­ing off when turned on! Why is this im­por­tant? Be­cause it means there’s a load of tech­no­log­i­cal wizardry at work to en­sure your hair dries faster, lessens frizz, im­proves shine and it also just looks very cool.

Us­ing patented tech­nol­ogy, air is drawn into the motor and am­pli­fied, pro­duc­ing high pres­sure and ve­loc­ity. There are three styling at­tach­ments – a dif­fuser and two to di­rect air flow – which at­tach mag­net­i­cally, and you can also use the dryer with­out them.

Dyson is famed for its blade­less fans, in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy and sleek de­sign, and this ethos car­ries through to their hair dry­ers. The fact that the brand was built upon the world’s first bag­less vac­uum cleaner (af­ter a whop­ping 5,127 pro­to­types) proves that when it comes to ad­vance tech­nol­ogy for home ap­pli­ances, they have it down pat.

The Su­per­sonic™ has three tem­per­a­ture set­tings and speeds, which can be changed by lightly push­ing the dis­creet but­tons. The max­i­mum heat and power will get your hair dry in no time! The pow­er­ful motor is housed in the han­dle and makes han­dling very dif­fer­ent from the norm, i.e. more bal­anced and light.

There are a cou­ple of minor dis­ad­van­tages to this amaz­ing hairdryer. It’s ob­vi­ously not very com­pact and the price tag is healthy, to say the least. Cur­rently re­tail­ing at RM1,799, this is not some cheap throw­away op­tion and should be con­sid­ered an in­vest­ment for your groom­ing rou­tine. It’s worth ev­ery cent when you con­sider you’ll have hair that looks like it’s been pro­fes­sion­ally styled and all in less time than with a nor­mal hairdryer.

This is the hairdryer com­pletely rein­vented. No more harm­ful in­tense heat and the fear of get­ting hair get­ting tan­gled in the fil­ter, and you’ll use less styling prod­ucts too. If you’re look­ing for a Christ­mas gift, this could be it. Or just get one for your­self and no more bad hair days!

The Dyson Su­per­sonic™ is avail­able at the Dyson Demo at The Gar­dens Mall, Sephora and ma­jor elec­tri­cal stores. EL
