Today’s post is a fun one. I heard about the Dyson Supersonic several months ago, and I finally got to try it out this week. It makes sense that the brand everyone knows for their vacuum cleaners would make a kick-butt hair dyer. Let me introduce you to the Dyson Supersonic:
I will admit from the start, that owning this thing is going to cost a pretty penny (try $399 to be specific), which seems high for a hair dryer, but if you are in the hair business (or you just really love high-quality hair products), then it might be worth QVC’s 6 Easy Pays of $66.50.
Now that you are aware of pricing, let me tell you what I love about this hair dryer:
What I love about the Dyson Super Sonic Hair Dryer:
It dries FAST. This is a huge pro for me because I have super thick hair that takes forever to dry. I love how much air this thing can put out!
It has Options. I also love that there are 3 power levels for heat AND drying power. And I can mix them up. So high heat and low dry, or high dry, low heat, or medium all around! It also has a microprocessor with intelligent heat control helps prevent extreme heat damage.
MAGNETIC attachments. This isn’t something I would pay hundreds extra for, but it is really convenient. Not only are the attachments magnetic, but it’s a strong magnet, so they don’t fall off if I bump it with my head, etc.
It’s lightweight. It’s uniquely designed to have the motor in the HANDLE (um….genius??), which keeps your arms from getting heavy (though with how quickly it dries, that probably wouldn’t be an issue). If hair was your profession and you did it all day, this would be a serious plus.
Tips for using the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer:
Work from the roots down: Because of the high-velocity airflow of this thing, I found that when I first used it with no rhyme or method to my madness, I had more of a tangled mess because of the amount of air blowing through my head of hair. I was much more pleased when I focused on drying my roots and worked my way down. I must also add, that I’ve always had this problem with getting a greasy spot on the back area of my head (gross, I know). It seems that if I DON’T blow-dry my hair, it dries looking all greasy, but if I DO blow-dry my hair, the heat from my hair dryer makes my scalp sweat and I still have that greasy area. I think it’s mostly a problem from having fine, thick hair. HOWEVER, because the Dyson dried my hair so fast, this issue went away ENTIRELY. I was super-duper happy about this.
Use the Cool Shot at the end. If you aim this kind of air velocity at your hair without using a cool shot at the end, you might feel like your hair is a little bit dry. Similar to washing your face with cold water after you wash it (to close the pores), you also need to give your hair a quick shot of cold air after blow-drying.
