What is so special about Dyson hair dryer?

Dyson’s tests claim that the Supersonic Dryer :

  • Increases smoothness by 75%
  • Increases shine by up to 132%
  • Decreases frizz and flyaway hair by up to 61%

It also dries at a significantly lower temperature than most modern hair dryers, but a lot faster, which may well be the key to its ability to be more effective, and more protective of thick, coarse and curly hair. Let’s find out more!

The problem

Women with thick straight or curly hair know that they have a fight on their hands every day, to stop air humidity undoing their styling efforts. What starts off the day as a smooth style that has taken you over an hour to do before work, can be the same old, frizzed-up mess before even the working day is over. And when you have a special occasion coming up, you have no choice but to pay for an incredibly expensive blow-dry at your hair salon. Has Dyson found a way to save you an absolute fortune in salon blow-outs?

The Supersonic Hair Dryer from Dyson is another step in the evolution of the hair dryer. In the 1950’s and before, the only way to dry your hair was to kneel before the coal, gas or electric fire with your head down! But now we’re in the Supersonic 21st Century, we turn to Dyson for incredible new products that are innovative and far more efficient.  The Dyson Supersonic has a motor that’s small and lightweight. But it produces an airflow that’s several times stronger, faster and slightly quieter than other hair dryers.

And it’s the speed of the airflow that dries your hair faster, without needing to be as hot as other dryers, which damage your hair. So if you have very curly, long hair that tends to get tangled, Dyson provides an accessory to direct the strong air-stream, so your hair is dried smoothly with the cuticles all pointing the same way – and a shiny finish! Users with long, curly hair say they can now straighten their hair beautifully in as little as 20 minutes!

Comfortable to hold

The dainty motor is located in the dryer’s handle and the filter is set beneath. This means that the airflow now begins underneath the handle and the air comes out of slender vents around the stylish head of the device. And as the heaviest (motor) section is in your hand this reduces muscle pain you often get from holding a top-heavy dryer above your head. The new location of the filter also completely removes the problem of long hair getting pulled into old-fashioned hair-dryer filters and singed! The smell of burning hair is awful, isn’t it?

Super accessories

And to help you have perfectly styled hair every single day of the year, the tools are excellent:

  • 2 concentrators
  • 1 diffuser
  • 1 non-slip mat
  • 1 storage hanger

You attach the styling tools to the dryer’s head using the strong, built-in magnetic force, which is the easiest way to attach two parts of any device. And there are no bits of plastic to break-off with use and spoil the connection.

Protect hair from damage

To those of us old enough to remember when rollers were the main way to style your hair, it’s obvious that the extreme heat of modern drying and styling is causing tremendous damage to women’s hair. So much damage, that we are now expected to pay for expensive hair products to protect our hair from the damage we do to it with the average hair dryer. And that, ‘hair product’, money adds up to a tidy sum month on month, especially when you don’t need to dry your hair at such a high temperature. The Supersonic hair dryer shoots air through your hair at a temperature that’s roughly 10º lower than most other dryers. So the sheer speed and strong movement of cooler air dries your hair quicker and more safely than extremely hot air.

Who can benefit from a Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer?

Obviously, those who have fine, silky hair don’t have so many problems with hair-drying. Therefore, you may not need a Dyson Supersonic. On the other hand, if you have thick, coarse, curly or frizzy hair that’s prone to tangling and can look like a dry, curly mess, then you can’t do better than invest in this new hair-drying method. It was designed for thick, difficult hair and the idea was to speed up drying and styling, without causing damage. And that’s what you get for your money – an efficient hair drying product that saves your aching arms, cuts your hair drying/styling time down by a lot, and saves you having to pay out a fortune for over-priced protecting and deep-conditioning hair products.


Like Dyson’s full range of innovative products, the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer was vastly superior to its competition in out tests. It beats every other brand for strongest airflow, most protective temperature, fastest drying speed, smoothest finish and comfort to hold in use. If you just add up how much you pay in one year for salon blowouts, and conditioning treatments for dried-out hair, we believe you’ll find it easy to decide whether this is a worthwhile investment. We highly recommend this fantastic breakthrough hairdryer for anyone with thick, coarse, curly or unruly hair that needs a firm drying and styling regime!
