A daily hair-drying session can amount to over five days of your life per year, and that's before you've even got your hair iron out. The Dyson Supersonic hairdryer promises to reduce that time and perhaps even replace the hot irons
The Dyson Supersonic comes boxed up alongside a range of accessories including a heat mat, a hanging hook and three attachments.
A diffuser – controls, softens and diffuses the air flow, perfect for speeding up air drying or making the most of your natural curls by preventing frizz.
The smoothing nozzle - lets you rough dry with fingers but maintain a smooth finish by controlling air flow – less velocity, no unruly blast of air.
The styling concentrator - is a super thin nozzle which jets the air in one direction and allows you to straighten the hair with a round brush.
The attachments clip on magnetically, which makes switching super efficient.
On the dryer itself, there are a range of buttons which allow you to ramp up the velocity or heat; three speed settings and four heat levels are signified with tiny lights.
The Dyson Supersonic's appearance sets it apart in more ways than one. the motor is in the handle instead of the head. This was a clever decision, since this design is usually what makes hair dryers so top-heavy and causes arm ache. It's lighter in general too (618g), due to the compact motor.
The biggest win for Dyson is not the sound though, it's what it does to your hair. And the benefits are hard to ignore.
Many beauty brands claim to have invented technologies to benefit your hair or prevent damage. Dyson's offering is a microprocessor built in, which measures and regulates air temperature 20 times every second. This in turn helps to prevent extreme heat damage and protect natural shine.
As well as regulating the temperature, using the smoothing nozzle really helps to keep the hair follicles from being disrupted, directing the hair shaft downwards and locking in moisture.
Everyone who has reviewed this hairdryer has marvelled out how fast it is.
The Dyson Supersonic doesn't blow your hair around like a gale force wind; the nozzles direct the airflow precisely to result in a super sleek finish, in less time than it would take a normal hairdryer.
The Dyson Supersonic has marked a significant improvement in noise levels and is possibly helping to harmonise households around the globe.
