Welcome to my honest review of the overpriced Dyson hair dryer! Minimal emotion, only facts and a sober approach to an expensive toy. Is it a toy? Or an essential tool for healthy hair). The review was written after six months of use!
I have always felt sorry for wasting time on long treatments in front of the mirror, but it has always been important for me to look good, even if I don’t have to go anywhere. For the past few years, my standard styling routine took 15-20 minutes, but I’ve always wanted to go faster! I even bought a professional Valera 2400 watt hair dryer 4 years ago. For me it was about power = speed of drying my hair. The speed was reduced to 10-15 minutes, but it seemed a lot.
And once I got to know from the advertising in the network that there was a super trendy and expensive novelty – a hair dryer of Dyson company, with a stunning space design, it seemed that it came off the covers of magazines from the future. Oh, and they promised that it would not just super-fast dry your hair, but make it healthier! Did you want it? I really did! But the price stopped me.
The Dyson Supersonic continuously monitors and adjusts the temperature of the air supply.
It takes 20 measurements per second to prevent overheating and damaging your hair.
- Purchase location: here on amazon
- Price: $439.99
- Packaging: large beautiful box, packaged all in good faith, will get to you safely.
The accessories are packed in individual, handy boxes.
A special film protects the gloss of the hair dryer.
- Appearance: the manufacturer offers us to buy either just a hair dryer, or a hair dryer in a case. The price is the same. Of course, I could not resist to buy a hair dryer with a pink case. It does not make sense, though. The case itself is nice, the top is made of artificial leather, but inside it is velvet, but essentially useless for a hair dryer. Storing is not profitable, because constantly you have to dig to get it out, and then put back in. And it is not convenient to transport in it, because the hair dryer takes much more space in the suitcase.
The appearance of the hair dryer appeals to me a lot!It is so futuristic and unusual, that it is hard not to fall in love. At least I am in love with it.
There are only 4 buttons on the case: on/off, cold airflow, power control, airflow heating temperature control. Nothing superfluous.
On the left side there are blue dots – power indicator, on the right side – red dots – heating degree indicator. Maximal value for both parameters is three.
I would also like to mention the quality of the cord. In my opinion, neither a child, nor a cat or a hamster can chew through this cord.
▶️ The positive emotions were off the charts! The hair dryer is so unconventional, light and stylish. In my hand it is perfect! It feels great to dry my hair, my arms do not get tired and my hair is not sucked in! Yes, I had that “stupid” moment from time to time when I was doing my hair styling and all of a sudden – my hair got caught in the fan.
▶️ And the speed… THIS is speed! A real drive.
Everyone in my family loved this hair dryer:
My husband turns it on for a minute, no, about 20 seconds at the most before he goes to work in the cold season!
My 4 year old daughter also loves this “cool dryer” =)
The 4-month-old wasn’t scared of this dryer at all to begin with.
▶️ The sound is not loud, but specific. It really does feel like an airplane is going for takeoff. Although, if you are in the next room and do not know that the hair dryer is on, you might think that the vacuum cleaner is working. I so myself once mixed up and asked my husband why he turned on the vacuum cleaner))
▶️ The handy attachments for every taste. I usually use a hair dryer without attachments at first if I don’t have much time to dry my hair naturally. Then I take one of the two heads, which create a clearly directed air flow, that is, the nozzle-concentrator.
But I do not use the nozzle for curly hair. Tried to use it to create volume at the roots, but nothing came out. I don’t have any use for it.
How long does it take to dry your hair?
I keep wanting to time my hair for a review and I’ve been meaning to time it, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I was always in a hurry and didn’t have time. But one day, when I just washed my hair, the phone rang and it turned out that I had an urgent need to run to a meeting. Panic…
I usually let my hair dry on its own first, at least 50%, although my hairstylist insists on 80%, but I don’t always have time. And then I put protective oil on the ends and proceed to style with a comb and hair dryer.
There was no time for that. My absolutely wet hair, which I just wiped with a towel, immediately began to dry. And not just a jet of air, and needed a normal, normal style.
The length of my hair when dyed counts as long =)
My hair naturally has a slight wave, which unfortunately does not look as romantic as I would like it to, but rather unkempt and wrinkled. So every time I pull my hair with a comb to make it lie flat and straight, on the ends I curl inward, and at the roots occasionally manage to create the desired volume.
This kind of styling took exactly 5 minutes. Instead of the usual 10-15 minutes, it is now 5 minutes. Am I happy? Yes, you are. And, if you just want to dry your hair, you take off the styling attachment and dry your hair with a regular volumetric air blast. Here the time is reduced to two minutes.
There is still one BUT. A strange thing happens to the hair.
Immediately after drying the hair is a little bit stiff! And after about 5 minutes of finishing drying the hair, everything is back to normal. The hair is soft and perfectly smooth.
And now, after six months of use, I’m ready to draw conclusions!
I have read a lot of what this hair dryer was loved by the masters, and by ordinary people)). Yes, it really is the technology of the future! The smart temperature control system, the compact motor of the new generation, ergonomic shape, unique weight, etc., etc. I agree, the manufacturers HAVE something to be proud of.)

✅ The disadvantages of the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer:
- price!!!! price!!! price!!! yes, the genius inventors should be repaid in full, but the current price is too high… I’m ready to update the review with a couple of great tips!
▶️ Lifehack #1. If you want to dry your hair quickly, then remove the attachment before styling and literally dry your hair for half a minute with just a hair dryer without attachments. You’ll get maximum air speed and your hair will literally dry in front of your eyes.
▶️Lifehack #2. If you want some root volume, dry your hair head down for those half minutes. Not only does the hair dry quickly, but it also lifts at the roots and adds volume. And after that you can style your hair with any style head.
▶️Lifehack #3. To keep hair from being hard, as I described above, do not dry at maximum speed, but at medium speed. Yes, it will take a little more time, but the hair will feel better.
We use the hair dryer every day, and sometimes more than once, as all family members love it. And no complaints in the work was not detected.
Conclusion: I am glad that I still decided to buy this hair dryer. Now styling takes the minimum possible amount of time! My hair is in great condition – no cuts, only shine and density. Perhaps it is because of the quality Japanese dye, which dyes my master for 4 years. But the hair dryer also plays a significant role. Since my hairdresser once did my hair at home, she was impressed with this hair dryer and wanted to get one for work. She said that it is very handy and, due to the speed and the absence of overheating, the hair will really be much healthier than when using a regular hair dryer. So yes, it is an expensive toy, you can do without it, but it is the only thing among other hair dryers will keep your hair healthy! If you can afford it, then definitely I recommend it.
