You guys my hair is my worst enemy on most days – it is thick, unruly, coarse and unpredictable and so when the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer came into my life – you guys have no idea how happy I was, skeptical but stupidly happy! Most of the things that my works for my friends to style and get ready fast, doesn’t seem to work for me. I admit, hair has never been and is not something I am good at. Another reason I am so thankful to have boys! I’ve never gotten on well with the curling iron either and the flat iron has literally been my best friend since high school. I wear my hair pretty straight most days and lately – well since having kids – or for the better part of the last five years, I have been slacking with my hair completely. Only really leaving time to really spend time on it when there’s an important event. Most days, it’s a quick blow dry, followed by a quick flat iron sesh and out the door I go. Who has the time?!!
So when the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer came out last year and I read all the reviews on it, I knew I had to try it. But I knew also that it came with a hefty price tag. Would it really be worth it? Fast forward to this past Mother’s Day when I was gifted one – thanks honey! – I was so so so excited to finally get my hands around it and give it a try.
Here’s my honest take on it:
I LOVE IT.
BUT I DON’T LOVE THE PRICE TAG.
BUT I LOVE IT AND WILL NOT BE GIVING IT UP. Why?
It’s a game changer. My hair is best when it’s blow dried and flat ironed pretty much right away. But usually I don’t have the time to do that. This is where the Dyson is a life saver. It usually takes me about 30 minutes to section off and dry my hair and then another 30 to flat iron. A whole hour! No one has time for this. Not to mention the arthritis and carpel tunnel I am constantly feeling these days. The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer lets me dry my hair in about 10-15 max. AND nest part, it’s so smooth so flat ironing is even less time-consuming. I can literally focus on just to outer most layer now and still end up with a more sleek, smooth, frizz free head of hair in so much less time and pain. I have never dried my hair so fast with results I can notice and actually love. My hair looked shinier and healthier with less products and time.
Some facts I love about the Dyson:
- It’s easier to handle a smaller dryer. Plus the weight is in the handle itself which makes it easier and more effortless to maneuver. No arm soreness!!
- The air flow and temperature control is designed to lessen the frizz and increase the smooth. At first when I used the Dyson, I thought it doesn’t seem as powerful as they claim but it really is. It dries your hair so fast but the engineering behind the dryer is what creates that smoothness and ultimately that shine in your hair.
- This dryer comes with three magnetic nozzles that are so easy to attach and detach. You can get a smooth look or use the diffuser for more controlled waves – your choice and so simple!
- It’s quiet!
Ok so what I still HATE, is the price tag. But again for my girls out there with my hair type – and those with thick hair especially, I think it’s worth the investment. Because time is money and aint nobody got time to be doing their hair for days!
