Xiaomi Dreame Hair Artist vs Dyson Supersonic: a comparative review of the top new hairdryers
Hair dryer has come a long way from the usual tool for drying hair to a full-fledged styling tool. With the new models you can easily volumize your hair, straighten stray curls, as well as strengthen weakened strands. Ionization function is one of the most important features of modern devices. Negatively charged ions reduce the static charge and soften the hair, which makes it smooth and easy to comb. And the ability to adjust the temperature and power of the air stream allows you to set personal preferences for comfortable use.
The hair dryer is a fan-operated device that creates warm air for drying hair. But the modern models, supplemented with a set of new functions, allow you to extend the limits of traditional usage. It is important to decide what exactly you need the device for, and what criteria you should pay attention to in the first place.
The key parameters of these products are:
- power and operation modes;
- Availability of additional attachments and functions;
- usability, ergonomics and noise level;
- case material.
Power and operation modes
It is a misconception that the power of the hair dryer is a parameter that determines the temperature of the air to dry the hair. In reality, it is the speed of heated air extracted from the appliance. This characteristic determines the speed of hair styling.
The main mistake when choosing a device by power. the more, the better. Of course, a powerful hair dryer saves time for drying, but on the other hand, in case of regular use it is possible to over-dry the hair.
According to this characteristic, the devices can be divided into the following groups:
- up to 1,400 watts. have a small size, weight and are travel devices;
- 1,400. 1,800 watts. suitable for daily household use;
- 1 800. 2 300 W. professional models.
Hair dryers with power over 2 000 W are not recommended for home use for frequent drying. Only a professional will be able to choose the right airflow mode without harming the hair. The owners of fine, weakened or chemically permed hair is better to choose a device with low power. You will need thermal protectors if you use a high-yield device.
The compromise solution is to buy a product with adjustable modes. There are two options:
- Adjusting the air speed (power);
- air temperature adjustment.
Cheaper versions have a dual regulator. This is not very convenient, because when you switch it the air speed and temperature change at the same time. In more expensive models, the temperature regulator functions autonomously.
The best option will be the availability of three temperature modes (cool, warm and hot). To avoid damage it is better to dry fine hair areas (temples and bangs) at low temperatures. It also requires cooled air to keep your style in place.
Accessories: nozzles, filter, cord
Extra attachments expand the capabilities of your hair dryer. But if you only need to dry your hair, do not overpay for a model with an excessive set.
The following nozzle options are available:
- The diffuser has special holes that channel and disperse a strong flow of air, helping your hair to dry more gently and without damaging it. On its surface there are “fingers”, allowing you to create a voluminous hairstyle;
- The concentrator. it is included with any hair dryer and allows you to direct the flow of air to the right places to make a quick drying and styling. The main characteristic of this nozzle is the diameter of the hole (from 0,7 to 1,5 cm): the smaller it is, the faster the curls dry. If the atomizer is too narrow, there is a chance of drying out the hair, so a diameter of 1 cm is considered optimal;
- the brush. a round brush, which is suitable for styling short and long hair and protects it from overheating.

Diffuser serves to create the volume of stacked hair Concentrator comes with most models The brush attachment is often included in the kit of hair dryers-brushes
It is also necessary to pay attention to the device of the filter, which is located in the back of the hair dryer and protects its internal elements from dust. It gets dirty from time to time during use and needs to be cleaned. Therefore, it is better to choose models with a removable air filter, which can be easily cleaned and, accordingly, will last longer.
Friction pads are a nice addition to the hair dryer set that reduce the vibration effect during the operation.
The cord is also an important part of the electrical device. Quality and length are key features. First and foremost, the cord should have good insulation and flexibility. As for the size, the optimal length is 2.5-3 m. A too long cord will get tangled, and a short cord will interfere with movement and “tie” you to the outlet. It is preferable that the cord rotate at the connection to the hair dryer. This will eliminate the possibility of it getting twisted when drying.
When buying a hair dryer, study the information about its additional functions. Opt for those models that have the features you really need and don’t overpay for unnecessary options.
The following popular features of hair dryers can be identified:
- Ionization protects the hair structure from overdrying, neutralizes static, makes curls more manageable, shiny, easier to style;
- Cold air blowing. is provided in most models and is designed to dry fine hair, and also allows you to fix the styling;
- Moisture control sensor. based on the humidity of the curls chooses the power and temperature of air flow;
- Automatic shutoff system. the operation of the device is interrupted when you touch a hard surface and resumes when you start using it again. Useful function for long time drying or styling.
Material and coating of the body and nozzles
In the manufacture of hair dryers are usually used polymer materials. It is necessary to choose devices made of durable plastic, which does not sag, withstands high temperatures and has no odor.
The heating pad should be made of ceramic material, which provides even heat without overheating the hair. Conventional metal heats unevenly and intensely, which can cause over-drying hair. Some models have tourmaline, a semi-precious rock with unique characteristics, applied to the ceramic coating. Combined with ceramic, it gives you soft and even heat, so your hair dries faster and looks shiny and silky. But the price of devices with tourmaline heaters is much higher.
Ergonomics: ease of use, weight and noise level
When choosing a product, be sure to hold it in your hands. It has to fit comfortably in your hand and be easy to use. Pay attention to the weight of the hair dryer: the lighter the device, the longer you can work with it without arm fatigue. But a quality device cannot be too light. Professional motors are always heavier and have a longer service life.
If possible turn on the hair dryer and listen to how it works in different modes. It cannot be completely silent, but too much noise should alert you. The buzzing should be smooth, avoiding unnecessary noise and crackling. Otherwise the quality of the appliance is questionable.
I’m sure many colleagues will mention Dyson among their favorite gadgets, and I myself am very fond of it. But I want to tell you about another useful device. GHD V Gold Max Styler. I use them in my work every day. I love their versatility: I can curl and straighten my hair with just one styler. The plates are large, so you can curl or wave like you did on Victoria’s Secret. I can also use it to straighten big strands, which would save a lot of styling time. and the result would be great. The platens heat up to 185 degrees without overheating my hair, so it works with all hair types.
It is very ergonomic and lets you know with a beep that you are ready to use it. And even if we forget about it, after 30 minutes, it turns off by itself. I also like the fact that it has a pouch that makes it easy to transport if it’s still hot.
Before the GHD V Gold Max Styler I used and still use the Cloud Nine pliers, but unlike them, the GHD doesn’t burn my fingers. and you don’t forget the burns from the C9. The price of this device will be 3-5 thousand cheaper than the C9. and yes, it’s worth the money. Many of my customers have bought one and are grateful for the recommendation. I’m all for using professional stylers. they’re made to make our lives easier, and are consistently satisfying in their versatility and ease of use.
The Dyson Supersonic review: what a 35,000th hairdryer can do
Problem 1: poor airflow
To quote the release, “Traditional hair dryers often provide either weak airflow or, conversely, too strong, uncontrollable. The Dyson Supersonic creates a powerful, targeted airflow at a 20° angle, which allows you to dry and style your hair thoroughly and gently.
Dyson Supersonic in our hands and ready for testing
Subjectively, yes, the airflow coming out of the Dyson Supersonic is more powerful (on max and even on medium), and more concentrated than from all my hair dryers. According to the manufacturer, it is 13 liters per second and the flow width is 27 mm. The Dyson Supersonic’s maximum power consumption is 1,600 watts. This is the same as most travel and “regular” hair dryers, but the efficiency is definitely higher. My “regular” professional hair dryer uses 1680-2000 watts, and there are a lot of professional models with 2200 and 2400 watts. That is, the Dyson Supersonic is more economical than most professional “colleagues”.
Now about the announced 20° styling. Dyson says that the airflow at this angle helps the scales that make up your hair smooth and stick together, so they don’t frizz, but they smooth out, and that makes your hair shinier. If you hold the hair dryer at the head vertically, the flow comes out just at this angle. It’s hard to say. everyone has a different way of holding their hair dryer. I like to tilt my head down and blow on the roots for volume. How my scales are doing. I don’t know.
Problem 2: hair is sucked in by hair dryers at the point of air intake
Indeed, the design of the Dyson Supersonic rules that out. No torn or damaged hair, no clogging of the hair dryer grid. This problem is solved by a really unique design for a hair dryer: the company has patented Dyson Air Multiplier technology to enhance air movement and successfully applies it in its climate equipment. fan, fan heater, air humidifier. The air is drawn in from below (there are air intake holes in the handle, covered by a removable filter), and at the outlet, passing through the slotted holes of the round contour of the dryer, it turns into a powerful air stream.
Problem 3: Regular dryers are heavy, and they make your hand tired
The Dyson Supersonic is claimed to be very light. Without attachments it weighs 630 grams, my travel hair dryer is lighter than it, but not as powerful, and professional. I have no heavier, but most professional hair dryers are indeed heavier. But to be fair, we must say that now on the market you can find compact and even travel models with the characteristics of professional hair dryers. But the Dyson Supersonic is more comfortable to use. The problem is that you can’t feel the vibration, and the center of gravity (where the motor is located) is in the handle, not in the body of the hair dryer. Let’s compare: in a normal hair dryer all the weight is on the widest part of the body, and we hold a hair dryer by a relatively thin handle, we have to strain our hand to hold the device (this does not apply to brush dryers, which also have a motor in the handle). If you use it for a few minutes, it’s not a big deal, but for a professional hair dryer, the difference should be noticeable.
Compared to another professional hair dryer
Problem 4: Regular dryers are too noisy
We measured the noise level of the Dyson Supersonic and two other hair dryers with a noise meter under the same conditions with little background noise, keeping the dryers at the same distance from the noise meter. To our surprise, the Dyson Supersonic results were the same as the regular models: 63-64 dB at minimum and 69-70 dB at maximum. Why is that strange?? Because the Dyson Supersonic feels quieter. Dyson claims that we only hear the sound of the airflow, but not the noise of the miniaturized but powerful V9 engine, because they have increased the number of blades on the motor impeller and achieved a frequency that the human ear can’t hear. It is hard to verify this claim, but it is a fact: a hair dryer makes a different noise than a rumble or roar, and it feels more like a muffled whistling sound, like a strong draft.
Problem 5: Regular hair dryers overheat your hair
Of course it depends on the way the hair dryer is used (the safe distance 20-30 cm from the hair is not observed by all) and on the mode selected. in sufficiently advanced models there are from 8 to 12 different combinations of temperature and airflow intensity. Here “chip” is in the accuracy of the temperature: you can choose from 4 options: 28, 60, 80 or 100 ºC, and the hair dryer will maintain the selected setting.
The BaByliss PRO BAB6510IRE hair dryer
BaByliss PRO is made in Italy. The prefix PRO indicates that it belongs to the category of professional hairdryers. Nevertheless, girls often buy it for personal use.
The Internet is full of enthusiastic reviews: despite the low price, the device well and very quickly copes even with thick and long hair. It is also praised for its ergonomic handle, which does not cause discomfort in the hand.
High power is good, but if not handled properly, it can harm the hair.
Despite the objective data, Olga found the hair dryer heavy. The master was inclined to think that it is more suitable for professional use.
Dyson’s “supersonic” hair dryer for 399
British appliance manufacturer Dyson, best known for its vacuum cleaners and hand dryers, has turned its attention to a common hair dryer.
“We realized that using a regular hair dryer could lead to hair damage,” said billionaire entrepreneur and founder James Dyson. “So I challenged the Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and create our version of the hair dryer that we thought would solve these problems.”.
Dyson claims to have invested 71 million and spent four years researching and developing new technologies to make the hair dryer quieter and less harmful to the hair. As a result, the device has a motor that is eight times faster and much smaller than those used in the most popular models, according to arstechnica. A bit of hair dryer development statistics:
- 1,625 km of human hair were used in the tests;
- Разработано 600 прототипов;
- than 100 patents have been filed for registration;
- Only 16 of the 100 patents are on nozzles;
- 103 engineers were involved.
The high velocity of the air flow coming out of the amplifier under high pressure, 3 times more air flow. В дополнение к самому фену идут магнитные насадки. Thanks to the Heat Shield technology (hot air flowing through the nozzles is between the streams of cold air), the surface of the nozzle does not heat up even when in close contact with the hair.

The hair dryer can be ordered online and will be sold exclusively at the Sephora chain of beauty stores for 399, starting this fall.
50 HAIR DRYER vs. 500 HAIR DRYER! Which one is worth the money?!. TrinaDuhra
Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. what has changed in three years of use
Dyson Supersonic hair dryers have been around for a long time. During this time, I think that everyone who wanted to, have already had time to get acquainted with them and make their own impression of the convenience / inconvenience of the model. My review for those who are wondering how the hair dryer behaves over time, is it harmful or useful for the hair, what new things have been invented in Dyson for these hair dryers.
I can’t say that I wanted a futuristic (at that time) Dyson Supersonic hair dryer immediately after it appeared on the Russian market. Not interested in the range of hair dryers, being quite happy with my two friends, the Philips clone dryer and the Philips brush dryer.
However, when my 8 Philips hair dryer started to malfunction (making rattling noises which hinted that maybe it was not as good as it used to be :-)), I started to leisurely explore the options to replace it with a new one.
I’ve read several posts, watched many videos with reviews of the Dyson hair dryer. I found all of them interesting, but not enough to spend 29.990 of the family budget for a hair dryer, when there were great ones on sale for 6.000. It was only after trying the hair dryer in the store that I realized how much I needed it, and wrote a letter to Santa Claus 🙂
An important argument in favor of the purchase was the release by the brand for the New Year 2018 limited edition with cases (3 colors to choose from). Prior to that, hair dryers were available without covers.
Since then, new colors have become a good tradition, so periodically produced not only hair dryers themselves, but also covers for them in various shades. For example, now a very beautiful red hair dryer in a red case is relevant. There are other interesting combinations.
The case is really good. The hood is thick, and it protects the hair dryer reliably. It closes with a magnet. Stitched with pink thread.
The case holds a hair dryer with its long cord (almost 3 m) and two nozzles. For travel case is not suitable. too heavy (700 g) and cumbersome, but for home storage is very convenient. I keep it on an open shelf and it hasn’t changed in 3 years. Nothing cracked, scratched, or peeled off. Only the inner velvet is a little dusty.
There are now on sale and just covers, no hair dryers. They come out in different colors from time to time. But it is more advantageous, of course, to buy a set.
(1) Usability, which is as follows:
Speaking of nozzles. In my kit, there are three: the diffuser nozzle is designed for drying curly hair (I put it in the box, it is not relevant to me), and two similar to each other, the nozzle-concentrator. For a quick drying I use the widest one (or dry it without no nozzles), for styling I use the narrower one.
(2) The quality of materials and workmanship.
The hair dryer in my hands is very pleasant to hold. It’s not just the feel of the plastic, but also the solid feel of the whole construction. If you put the hair dryer on a surface, you will not hear a sound and it does not vibrate.
After a long time of use, I can confidently say that the materials are durable and wear-resistant. First of all, the body itself has not changed in any way (no scratches, no damage from styling products), and secondly, the nozzles were surprisingly strong. Several times I’ve hit the doorjamb with the hair dryer attachment while drying. I was hitting it hard 🙂 The nozzles would fall on the bottom of the tub or on the tile floor. For that reason, several of my past hair dryers have gotten “dressed” in duct tape in the middle of their lives 🙂 Not only did the Dyson nozzles not crack, they were not even scratched.
It’s really high. I rarely used to blow dry my hair right after washing it. I usually let them air dry for about 20-30 minutes and then I just leave them to dry a little more to get them into shape. With the Dyson, I changed that habit and now dry/style my hair immediately after toweling. Except for application of non-washable care and styling products, a simple drying process takes 5 minutes. With a brushing action, it took 15 minutes.
ЗTotally beats the drying performance of the old Philips. I have porous hair that tends to frizz when blow-dried without a brush. Dyson even without nozzles and brush somehow makes it smoother. With nozzles, the effect of smoothness is even more pronounced, which gives owners of long, straight hair, reason to say that the hair dryer can replace the iron.
By this I mean that, firstly, the choice of modes makes it easy to understand which combination suits you; and secondly, the buttons are well fixed in the chosen position and cannot be switched accidentally.
There are two buttons on the handle: an on/off lever and a cold air button.
The “head” of the hair dryer has two more buttons. A button with a fan icon regulates the power of the blower. There are three stages, I use only the first. The second button, with a red dot, sets the temperature. Here you have 4 options: cool air (the temperature is off) and a gradual increase in temperature by pressing the button.
When three lights are on, the hair dryer operates at maximum power and heats at maximum temperature.
I use minimum power and minimum temperature (occasionally medium, but never maximum). The airflow on the three-point mode is so strong that it blows heavy bottles and tubes off the bathroom shelves.
Thanks to all the above advantages of the Dyson hair dryer, I finally learned how to quickly and easily manage the styling of my uncomplicated haircut. Not only did the size of the Philips(-s) make styling torture with arm stretching, but the results were noticeably weaker.
The Philips hair dryer-brush (I have a twistable one) is much better at styling than the old bulky hair dryer, but I occasionally get confused which button to press, and the brush twists in the wrong direction, getting stuck in my hair and pulling some out. Besides the momentary trauma, the temperature of the hair dryer-brush is noticeably high for me, so I’m wary of doing this kind of styling after every wash.
I’m sure there are people whose hair looks great without a hair dryer, but I’m not one of them. My hair is porous, it’s not very dense. The purpose of the style: to raise the roots, shape the “nape of the neck”, remove frizz, if possible add volume and slightly shape the ends. To illustrate the work of the hero of the post, digging in the reviews, I found photos of my hair, dried with an old hair dryer,
and neater versions, styled with a hair dryer-brush and a Dyson hair dryer.
In terms of hair smoothness, the result is not much different. But let me remind you of three important differences: 1) a hair dryer is more convenient, no tangled hair, hands do not get tired; 2) therefore, the hair dryer is faster; 3) I do not overheat the scalp and hair with a hair dryer. The convenience of the tool makes the result look the way it was meant to look, not the way it was meant to be. The compact size of the hair dryer makes it easier for me to lift the crown of my head and shape the ends.
There are some disappointments, too. Unfortunately, the hair dryer for grass has not grown to the waist yet, and the hair dryer kit was not included 🙂
But seriously, it’s just a hair dryer. And the results from using it greatly depend on the hair and hands of the owner. There are girls who are able to style their hair without any gadgets and improvised materials “like from a salon. And there are some hairs, which are exposed to regular coloring, perms and irons, while remaining strong and healthy. So those who are already doing fine, it is definitely not worth spending money on this hair dryer.
For me, it was a real godsend. In addition to the above-mentioned strong advantages, over time I noticed a beneficial effect on the overall condition of hair. I’ve read several Комментарии и мнения владельцев where girls have complained of dry hair after drying with the same hair dryer. I have the opposite impression. I assume that due to the fact that the head is not exposed to frequent exposure to hot air, the skin is normalized. not bothered by dryness. Less hair loss. I attribute it to gentler styling without overheating.
The topic of travel is not relevant at the moment, but in previous years I always went with my hair dryer. It does not take much room in hand luggage, it weighs little, and saves hair and time considerably (in comparison with hotel monsters :-)).
The hair dryer has become one of my favorite appliances. It caused such high confidence in the brand that when the need for a humidifier and vacuum cleaner emerged, analogues of other firms were almost not considered.
By the way, I really like the fact that Dyson is actively developing its range not only “in breadth” but also “in depth. New appliances are appearing, and the existing ones are evolving. For example, over the years a professional version of the hair dryer was issued (for salons), there were additional accessories (covers, new tools, wall mounts, holders, brushes and combs).
But competitors are not slacking, either. Besides the Chinese fakes, there are Chinese analogues, of very good quality, judging by the reviews, and with identical technical characteristics, judging by the description. The price of analogues does not exceed 50% of the price of Dyson. They give off a double impression. On the one hand, the Chinese are good, if indeed they could do the same thing twice cheaper, but on the other hand, you could have added a little more personality to the new name 🙂
Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. What has changed in three years of use
Dyson Supersonic hairdryers appeared a long time ago. During this time, I think that all who wanted, have already had time to get acquainted with them and make their own impression of the convenience / inconvenience of the model. My review for those who are interested in how the hair dryer behaves over a long period of time, is it harmful or useful for the hair, what new things have been invented in Dyson for these hair dryers.
I can not say that I wanted a futuristic (at that time) hair dryer Dyson Supersonic immediately after the appearance of the Russian market. I was not interested in the range of hair dryers, being satisfied with my two assistants. a regular Philips hair dryer and a Philips hair dryer-brush.

On sale now there are also just covers, without the hair dryer. Comes out periodically in different colors. But it is more profitable, of course, to buy a set.

(2) Quality of materials and assembly.
It is a pleasure to hold the hair dryer in hands. It’s not just the feel of the plastic, but also the solid feel of the whole construction. If you put the hair dryer switched on you will not hear a peep, and it does not vibrate.
After using it for a long time, I can confidently say that the materials are strong and resistant to wear and tear. First of all the body itself has not changed (no scratches, no damage from styling agents), and secondly the nozzles are surprisingly strong. Several times while drying I hit a door jamb with the nozzle on the hair dryer. It was a real pain 🙂 The nozzles fell on the bottom of the tub or on the tile floor. For this reason, several of my past hair dryers have been “dressed” in duct tape in the middle of their lives 🙂 Not only have the Dyson nozzles not cracked, they are not even scratched.
It’s really high. I rarely used to blow-dry my hair right after washing it. I usually let them dry naturally for about 20-30 minutes, and then I’d leave them to dry a bit more, shaping them. With Dyson I changed this habit and now I dry / style my hair immediately after towel drying. If you don’t count the application of non-washing care and styling products, a simple drying takes 5 minutes. With styling on the brushing. 15 minutes.
ЗA noticeably superior drying quality to the old Philips. I have porous hair that gets frizzy when drying without a brushing machine. The Dyson, even without the heads and brush, somehow makes them smoother. With attachments smoothness effect is even more pronounced, which gives owners of long straight hair, reason to say that the hair dryer can replace the iron.
By that I mean, firstly, the choice of modes makes it easy to figure out which combination is right for you; and secondly, the buttons lock well in the chosen position and don’t switch accidentally.
On the handle there are two buttons: the lever “on / off” and a button for cold air.
There are two more buttons on the head of the hair dryer. A button with a fan icon regulates the power of the flow. There are three steps, I only use the first. The second button, with a red dot, sets the temperature. There are four options here: cool air (temperature off) and a gradual increase in temperature by pressing a button.

I use minimum power and minimum temperature (occasionally medium, but never maximum). The three-point airflow is so strong that it blows heavy bottles and tubes off the bathroom shelves.
With all of the above advantages of the Dyson hair dryer, I finally learned how to style my simple haircut quickly and easily. Not only did the size of Philips(-s) make laying into a torture with arm stretching, but the result was noticeably weaker.

In addition to the momentary trauma, the temperature of the hair dryer-brush is noticeably high for me, so I am wary of doing this kind of styling after every washing.
I’m sure there are some lucky women whose hair looks great without a hairdryer, but I’m not one of them. My hair is porous, its thickness leaves much to be desired. The styling goals are to lift the roots, form a “nape,” remove frizz, add volume if possible and give a little shape to the ends. To illustrate the hero of the post, digging in the reviews, I found photos of my hair, dried with an old hair dryer,
And the neater versions, styled with a blow dryer-brush and a Dyson blow dryer.
В плане гладкости волос результат не сильно отличается. But let me remind you of three important differences: 1) it is more convenient to use a hair dryer, the hair does not get tangled, my hands do not get tired; 2) consequently, the hair dryer is faster; 3) I do not overheat the scalp and hair with a hair dryer. Due to the convenience of tools the result is as intended, not as it happens. The compact size of the hair dryer makes it easier for me to lift the top of my head and shape the ends.
There are frustrations, too. Unfortunately, during the time of using the hair dryer the grass braid did not grow to the waist, and the hairdresser was not in the kit, too 🙂
But seriously, it’s only a hair dryer. And the results depend a lot on the hair and hands of the hair dryer wearer. There are girls who are able, without any gadgets and improvised materials to make a style “as if-from the salon. And there are hairs that undergo regular coloring, perms, and irons, while remaining strong and healthy. So for those who are already doing fine, it is definitely not worth spending money on this hair dryer.
For me, it’s been a real boon. In addition to the above-mentioned strong advantages over time I noticed a beneficial effect on the overall condition of hair. I read a few Комментарии и мнения владельцев, where girls complained about the dryness of the hair after drying with the same hair dryer. I have the opposite effect. I assume that due to the fact that my head is not often exposed to hot air, the skin is normalized. dryness is not a problem. My hair falls out less, which I attribute to gentle styling without overheating.
At the moment the topic of travel is not relevant, but in previous years I always went with my hair dryer. It doesn’t take a lot of room in my hand luggage, it weighs very little, and saves hair and time (in comparison to hotel monsters :-)).
The hair dryer has become one of my favorite household appliances. It generated such high confidence in the brand that when the need for a humidifier and vacuum cleaner arose, analogs from other firms were hardly considered.
By the way, I really like the fact that Dyson is actively developing its range not only “in breadth” but also “in depth. New devices appear, and the existing ones evolve. For example, over the years, a professional version of the hair dryer was released (for salons), additional accessories appeared (covers, new nozzles, wall mounts, stands, brushes and combs).
But the competitors do not sleep. In addition to the Chinese fakes there are Chinese analogues, of very good quality judging by the reviews, and with identical technical characteristics, judging by the description. The price of analogues does not exceed 50% of the price of Dyson. Raise a double impression. On the one hand, the Chinese are good, if they really could do the same thing twice cheaper, but on the other hand, you could add a little more personality to the new name 🙂
The Dyson supersonic miracle hair dryer, yes or no
Very long been looking at this miracle gadget, but the price tag was embarrassing. The hair dryer is a colossal thing for me, as my hair is thick, porous, which means that it is not going to dry on its own, and even if it does, it will end up with something similar to a nest on the head. I’ve always taken professional hair dryers with a lot of power to cut down on drying time. Of course this is not the best way to affect the condition of the hair. And now the moment had arrived.
Finally, I became the lucky owner of a Dyson supersonic hair dryer. Included with the miracle gadget came a rubber mat and 4 nozzles. I chose purple out of the 3 available.
The hair dryer is nice to the touch, not heavy 680 grams. The power is 1600 watts.
The button on the top left controls the airflow rate. There are three modes in total. Next to the button when you switch the light bulb lights up.
The button on the right with the red dot controls the temperature of the air flow. Next to it, there is also a light indication and 3 modes.
And finally, last is the “cold blast” button.
The air vents in this model are located at the bottom of the handle, which is very convenient. You can not overlap them by hand during use and it is unlikely you can. Removable grill covers the filter, which must be periodically cleaned of dust.
The hair dryer has a powerful magnet that makes it easy to twist and turn the nozzles.
Allows you to lift hair up from the roots or pinch style individual hair strands.
2.The standard directional flow nozzle.
Good for regular hair drying.
Diffuses the jet of air, which helps reduce damage to the hair.
This hair dryer is a pleasure to use. It is not as powerful as my previous ones, but it is really gentle on the hair. In addition, the hair after it is NOT DRY, smooth and shiny to the ends without any styling products. This is nonsense in my case. Hair is prone to dry ends and frizz. Hair looks like after the salon. I don’t pull them out with a comb and don’t use styling products.
And finally, a few words about the Ikoo comb. I absolutely loved it. Beautiful comfortable, compact. It relieves static stress on the hair, brushes well even tangled strands, massages the head.
