Review: Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer

Wednesday, 12 July 2017
My mum's a hairdresser and as a result, I've always been a bit snobby when it comes to hair dryers. I'd rather not use one at all than use one that's not very powerful. My mum works from home and recently invested in the new Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer. I've been trying it out too and I thought it would be a great thing to review as it's very expensive and therefore you'd really want to make sure it's a great hairdryer before you invest.

The motor is connected to an air multiplier which boosts airflow. Meaning it can dry hair much faster. There are three different air speed modes and 4 different heat modes. These are really easy to switch between and are indicated my lights. The hairdryer comes with attachments like a diffuser which attach magnetically to the front of the hairdryer making them really easy to switch over. It also comes with a heat proof mat and a storage hanger.

The hairdryer is a bit of an odd shape and it does take a while to get used to. It's much smaller than a regular hairdryer which is a big bonus for storage/transport. The first thing that I noticed when using this for the first time was that it's much lighter than a regular hairdryer. Weighing in at only 618g it's much easier to use - especially if you have long hair that takes a while to dry.

With a regular hairdryer, it can take up to 40 minutes to dry my hair as it's very thick, long and curly. But I can dry my hair from 'straight out the shower' wet to 'ready to straighten' dry in about 10 minutes. I also find that using the diffuser makes my hair less frizzy. This is the reason that my mum wanted to invest in such an expensive hairdryer. Using this means that she can fit more clients into the same timeframe or work a shorter day with the same about of pay. 

The major downside to this hairdryer is the price. With a hefty £299.99 price tag it certainly isn't cheap. As far as my mum's concerned it's more than paid for itself in a professional capacity as it reducing the amount of time she has to spend with each client. She's also had a lot of positive feedback about how much more volume this gives compared to the conventional blowdry. Some customers have even gone on to buy one themselves.

If you are going to buy one of these I'd recommend using Boots. If you wait until they have some sort of triple points offer etc. That way you're almost getting some money back from your purchase in the form of the points!

What do you think? Could you ever spend that much money on a hairdryer?
