The Dyson Supersonic hairdryer needs no introduction. Ever since its launch in 2016, it’s been letting women all over the world enjoy an extra 10 to 15 minutes of sleep thanks to its patented Dyson digital motor V9, which is up to eight times faster than any other hair dryer motors. Not only that, it’s also really, really easy on the hair because it has intelligent heat control, which protects your hair from damage due to excessive temperatures.
But, if you have a sensitive or even a sensitised scalp, you will know that drying your hair can be a painfully long process. Literally. Like, you want the hot air to dry your hair, but it can also be irritating and painful for sensitised and sensitive scalps. Suddenly you’re an amateur contortionist trying twist yourself into a pretzel to dry your hair while manipulating the dryer such that the hot air doesn’t reach your scalp. Not fun.
Now there’s a solution for that
The engineers at Dyson created a new attachment for the Supersonic hairdryer that claims to solve this problem. Called the Gentle Air Dryer, it uses a technology that manipulates the machine’s airflow to widen its path, delivering a gentle, cooler airflow to the scalp. This means that even though it’s the same amount of energy that would come from the machine normally, because it is diffused over a larger area, you can still use it on high flow and high heat settings without worrying about scalding your sensitive scalp.
Because the heat is diffused, this attachment is also great for people who colour their hair as it prevents your hair colour from fading. Those with fine hair will also appreciate diffused air drying with this attachment.
That’s not all
If you have curly or wavy hair you will love the new Re-engineered diffuser. It mimics natural air drying—minus the frizz—for better defined waves and curls. The longer prongs mean that you can reach deeper into the hair and style more hair with greater control—which is great if you have thick hair or want to create some volume at the roots.
The other new attachment is the Re-engineered styling concentrator which is slimmer and wider than the original one. This means it concentrates all the air flow only on the section of hair your styling without disturbing the rest of your hair.
The newest Dyson Supersonic hair dryer sets now come pre-kitted with these new attachments, so you can add them to your styling routine. If however, you already have the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, you can purchase the new and re-engineered attachments at $49 each at Dyson Demo Store – Beauty Lab at Funan, the Dyson Mall Demo Zone at Westgate as well as from the brand’s site.
