Putting the hottest gift of 2016 to the test.
Dyson has been paving the way in terms of innovation for many years now. The dedicated team of engineers and designers overseas have made it their mission to constantly release new and competitive products, often light-years ahead of others already present on the market. When the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer was released earlier this quarter, the company changed a staple item for good, one that has been in need of an overhaul for decades.
I was very excited to get my hands on this game-changer tool, so that I could see for myself if it was just as exceptional as promised. Investing in something above the average cost often seems unnecessary, and we’re quick to put off replacing everyday things. With that said, after five years of using the same hairdryer all through university and up until now, I was ready for a change. Did you know that a hairdryer ‘expires’ after two years? I’m not exactly sure what this means but I’d be willing to bet that yours is ‘expired’ too, and that this article came at a very crucial time for you!
From the very first glance, I was impressed with the Dyson Supersonic’s shape, size, and overall design. The machine is modern, with a sleek appearance. The bottom-heavy design feels strange at first but it causes far less arm strain while drying than most conventional models. This weight is a result of Dyson’s motor It rests in the bottom as opposed to in the head like traditional dryers), which allows for the signature Air Multiplier technology to work most effectively. The device has 13 internal impeller blades, designed to crank out 41 litres of air per second. It comes with three bundled magnetic attachments for various hair types and textures, so you can be sure that it will work for you.
I put it to the test on my super long, slightly damaged hair. It promises to use less intense heat than competitors (although as far as I’m concerned, this product has no competition yet), to reduce damage, and to dry in a fraction of the time of a typical hairdryer. The machine also uses negative ions to reduce static, which has always been the enemy for anyone with sleek, straight hair.
The Dyson Supersonic is incredibly innovative, I assume it will cause a major disruption for leading brands and existing customer loyalty simply because of how advanced it is.
Is it worth the hype? Yes.
This is definitely a tool that allows you to skip the styling tools afterwards.
Whether you have long hair or short, it will save you a lot of time.
