Recently, my hair was feeling dry and brittle. Since I blow dry and curl it everyday, I figured it was due to the excessive heat. So, when I had the opportunity to try out a new blow dryer, I couldn’t be more excited to see if it could prevent any further damage. Check out my thoughts on the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer below!


The weight was the first thing that struck me about it — it was light, but weighty enough to create a rhythm. The evenly-proportioned tool made it easy to move short strokes across the crown of my head without having to worry about getting my hair caught in the back.



I’ve never used a nozzle on my hairdryer, but the instruction manual recommended I do. There were 3 attachments ; a diffuser, a styling nozzle , and a smoothing concentrator.  



The repeated strokes combined with concentrated airflow helped train my hair in the direction I wanted it to go. Being able to create shape in my coif is huge for me living in breezy San Francisco and with Outside Lands just around the corner, hopefully this technique will keep my mane in place while I spend all day in GG park.



One of the coolest (no pun intended) features is that the temperature is measured 20 times every  second to prevent extreme heat damage. I use the regular (medium) heat for drying and then the constant cold setting to seal the volume in. It puts me at ease knowing my hair won’t fry, and being able to take my time while styling helps me not overheat as I’m getting ready.

Overall, I’m really happy with the Dyson Supersonic Dryer, its intelligent heat control and fast drying, and with its compact size, I can throw it in my overnight bag on weekend trips.
