I did it… I treated myself to a Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer… The moment I pressed purchase was an actual dream. It might sound a bit overdramatic but we all know how expensive Dyson hair products can be, and so I have been saving for this moment for a while. I have wanted one for the longest time but between saving for a house, business expenses, paying to get my hair dyed because of a shoddy bleach job back in October I haven’t gotten around to buying one. And then, when I did want to, it became out of stock and has been ever since. So to say it was a bit of a mission to get hold of one is an understatement. But I finally did so I thought I wold do an honest review of my new Dyson Supersonic hairdryer.
I have to admit I was a little bit worried that I would be spending £300 on a hairdryer and I wouldn’t see a difference between using the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer and using my normal hairdryer. I had used the Dyson before when Jack and I went to the Cotswolds in the summer, but it wasn’t enough to tell whether it would be an investment worthy decision. Because let’s be honest forking out £300 on a hairdryer is not a small payment.
I also did the debate of whether to get the Supersonic Hairdryer or the Airwrap. For those who don’t know, the Supersonic is the hairdryer on it’s own with hairdryer specific attachments like a diffusers, concentrated nozzle, and flyaway smoother. Whereas the Airwrap is a styling tool so you can dry, curl, smooth and add volume to your hair. What made me choose the Supersonic over the Airwrap was that most often than not, when I wash my hair, I want it to be a speedy process and it will be before I go to bed. The last thing I want to do before I go to bed is try curling my hair. I am also really cack-handed so when it comes to styling my hair I normally just straighten it.
So I decided that I would mostly be using it for drying my hair, and the Supersonic hairdryer is slightly more powerful as a hairdryer than the Airwrap. The Supersonic has 1600w where as the Airwrap has 1200w. It was also £150 cheaper.
I luckily managed to get my hands on the limited edition version of the Supersonic in the navy and copper colour with the travel case. I had all the shops and Dyson pages open my Safari on my phone in case any came back in stock. And somehow, on a Saturday morning it happened to come into stock on Very. You can bet I ordered it straight away and it came the next day with free next day delivery which was amazing.
And now for the moment you are all waiting for – is it worth the £300? And in my honest opinion, yes. The Supersonic hairdryer is amazing. It manages to dry my hair in minutes – and as I have thick hair it can take quite a while. I have also never been left with softer hair. With bleached hair, my hair can naturally feel very dry, but I cannot get over how soft my hair feels after using it. It has completely changed my hair care game and I look forward to washing my hair and using it.
Another thing I love about it is that I don’t have to straighten my hair after using it – normally I would dry and straighten it right after. However with the Dyson, it dries it straighter than I would get with my old hair dryer and so if I’m not going out, or working from home, I don’t need to apply the excess heat to it. The case is amazing too because it means I can take it away, or store it away easily and safely.
Would I recommend it? If you can afford to stretch your budget, treat yourself, or really care about your hair then yes. I would buy it without hesitation. Have you got one? Let me know in the comments.
