I was very lucky to have been bought the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer for Christmas this year – what a TREAT! I decided, in my new year quest to write more (because it makes me happy) that I’d make this my first review of 2018.
My hair is really frizzy and thick – something I’ve just accepted now that I’ve spent the last five years growing it out, absorbing advice from trichologists like Phillip Kingsley, and spending fortunes on treatments, only to realise that’s just how my hair was made rather than a result of too much bleach and lack of care.
I struggle to dry it quickly without damaging it, and washing and drying my hair is a real drag because it takes so long it hurts my arm. As a result I often live on dry shampoo. Fortunately/unfortunately I can get away with it because my body appears to absorb moisture like a dry, dry sponge.
Anyway, as a result I was excited to get started and try out my new hairdryer that claims to:
- Speeds up your hair drying process
- Prevent ongoing damage to the hair shaft by overheating
- Look snazzy and doesn’t make a lot of noise (it is very quiet)
It’s great if you want to de-frizz your hair. Don’t get me wrong, I still need to straighten my hair after drying with this, but it’s certainly a lot less frizzy and I could realistically leave the house without looking like I have a mane.
It’s incredibly fast – I dried my hair in ten minutes. Usually it takes up to 20 minutes.
It has three different fixings, one for styling, one for fast drying and one for curls
It’s quiet and ‘ergonomic’ (great word)
Very expensive for a hairdryer, unless you have someone in your family who works out the ‘business case’ for it in terms of time saved.
It’s not the lightest thing, but it ain’t heavy.
Overall, the Dyson hairdryer is expensive and although I love it, I wouldn’t recommend that people rush out and buy it immediately. It has some brilliant benefits, so it’s a case of weighing up how much you realistically want to invest in a hairdryer.
I’ve also made a video which you can see here... just to prove that it really took JUST 10 MINUTES to dry my hair. I’m also endeavouring to make more videos, watch this space.
Buy it here with a snazzy bag for £299.
