Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer

I was very lucky to receive the Dyson Supersonic as a Birthday present last month. I have been curious about this hairdryer since it launched and really wanted to ty it.

I have a Dyson vacuum and love that, so knew the hairdryer would be a great product but how good could it be for its massive price tag? Ultimately, a hairdryer is just for drying your hair. What else can we expect our hairdryer to do?

I have quite thick, long hair, so I have always used a big “salon type” hairdryer, capable of drying my hair as quickly as possible. I hate those little travel type ones the you get in hotel rooms. All they tend to do is burn my hair.

The Dyson Supersonic claims to guard against heat damage, therefore it helps hair shine, be fast drying, and is engineered for balance.

First of all – lets address the way this hairdryer looks. Its unlike any other hairdryer in appearance and it is beautiful. I got the iron and fuchsia one but there are a couple of other colour options available.

The motor is tiny and its in the handle so this is how its engineered for better balance. In traditional hair dryers, the motor is in the top so that’s where all the weight is meaning its harder to control. So no more clunking yourself in the head with this dryer.

This dryer is very, very light. It weighs 0.659kg compared to normal dryers which are around double that weight. If you have short hair this probably won’t matter as it won’t take long to try your hair but my hair takes ages to dry so your arm does start to ache after using a traditional dryer for 15-20 minutes. I have no arm ache at all using the Dyson. You can also get this closer to your head because its smaller so it makes doing the back of your hair so much easier.

It comes with three attachments. A diffuser, which I don’t use because my hair is straight a smoothing nozzle and a styling concentrator. The great thing about these attachments is that they are all magnetic so they just stick on the end really simply but really firmly – they don’t move or drop off when you are using the dryer.

The dryer also comes with a rubber mat which is great, I have this on my dressing table and so when I put the dryer on that,  it won’t slip off and fall on the floor.

Mine also came with a platinum storage bag which has a magnetic closer and is lined with heat-resistant fabric. I haven’t used this yet but it will be great when I go away. because this dryer is so small and light I will always take this on holiday now rather than using the hotel dryers which practically set your hair on fire.

It claims to dry your hair quicker, and I can say it definitely does. I would say its taken around 5-10 mins of my usual 20 minute drying time.

You have 3 speed settings and 4 heat settings. All of the buttons are little digital push buttons and little lights show what setting you are on. It also has a cold shot button for adding extra shine at the end.

This dryer is also much quieter. When I first turned it on I thought because it was so quiet there would not be any power there and it would be useless but it’s very powerful.

I would say you need to use this dryer 5-6 times before you get the full effect. It’s so different from traditional dryers that you have to really get used to the way you hold it, its weight and how to style your hair with it. I have definitely noticed a difference with my hair over the last month. Its shinier and less frazzled. Some people say they no longer use their straighteners since using the Dyson. To be honest, I am still using mine, but I probably don’t need to.

So is this dryer worth the price tag………….

I think it is yes. It’s so much easier to use, its quieter, quicker and does not damage your hair as much as other dryers.

Have you tried the Dyson Supersonic yet?

Thanks for reading

  1. I’ve been curious about this hair-dryer. Most days I let my hair dry naturally and then use a dryer for a few minutes to kind of style. I love the look of it, and it’s so clever that they placed the motor at the handle to make it less heavy.
    The fact that it’s quick and potentially removes the need for straightening is amazing as well! Fantastic review – you covered everything I could possibly want to know 🙂

  2. Such a complete review 😍 When it comes to thick long hair… It’s such an arm workout, it’s true haha I might consider getting this but it hurts my pocket a bit. There’re so many things I want to buy😩

  3. I was curious about what these would be like – I’d heard good things but didn’t know whether you’d be paying for the Dyson name or whether it really was amazing, which you’d hope it would be given the RRP! They look fab, definitely wouldn’t say no to owning one if it were a little more in my budget as I think it could be a worthwhile investment for less damage to hair. x
