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
