I wanted a Dyson Hair Dryer for a long time. Two months ago I decided to buy one, even if my hair dryer was still working good. I can’t emphasize enough how much I like it. Knowing what I know now, I would have bought it earlier. Dyson is not exactly cheap, none of their products are, but I have had two vacuum cleaners from them and I know it was amazing. At just shy of £300, the Dyson Hair Dryer is the most expensive mass produced hair dryer.
I picked the Iron and Fuchsia colour combination because I like how it looks. Before using the Dyson I would use, constantly, hair protector when I was using a hair dryer. It made a difference. But, because how Dyson markets itself, I wanted to see if I still need hair protector or not. I don’t! My hair looks amazing without, and that’s great.
Furthermore, Dyson is very silent. I can use it even if my husband has a meeting in the other room, which would have been impossible with my last dryer. It might sound like an unlikely scenario to happen, but, with us working from home, it did happen.
If you need remembering… this is how long my hair is. It is an old photo, but, besides a slight change to the colour, the length is just the same.
As you can imagine, I need a bit of time to dry my hair. With Dyson I don’t need as much. I finished my shower and washing my hair in one morning, knowing that in 15 minutes I had to be in front of my laptop for a video call. Well, it took only 5 minutes to dry my hair and I had time to apply make-up (foundation, lipstick, brow cream) and put on jewellery too. The hair was still a bit damp, but it was not noticeable in the video call and, as I said, I only allowed 5 minutes for this. This is why I love this hair dryer.
Dyson has 3 speeds and 4 heat settings. I usually switch between the low and medium speed and low (60°C) and medium heat (80°C). There is a cold button underneath the power switch. The air flow is so fast for the top speed that, with my length, it’s just not suitable.
Dyson Hair Dryer – settings, according to their instructions:
4 heat settings
100°C – fast drying and styling
80°C – regular drying
60°C – cooler drying and diffusing
28°C – constant cold
3 precise speed settings
High – for fast drying and styling
Medium – for regular drying
Low – for diffusing
I tried all the accessories the Dyson Hair Dryer comes with, but I prefer using it on its own. For me the diffuser would be the next best choice. I imagine that for someone with a shorter hair, the styling tools would be very helpful.
The accessories are, from left to right, top to bottom: non-slip heat mat; Styling Concentrator; Diffuser; Gentle air attachment; Smoothing Nozzle.
All of these are magnetic and they can be attached to the dryer easily.
You can buy it directly from their website, if you fancy. As I mentioned in the beginning, I bought the hair dryer myself, this is not a sponsored product review.
