When the popular vacuum brand Dyson entered the beauty room two years ago with the Supersonic hair dryer, it was a complete game changer: slim and light She dries her hair frantically and makes it without deep frying her hair, so I had great hope for her latest innovation: the Dyson Airwrap, an all-rounder tool that uses air to heat hair without extreme heat to style.
What It Is
First, it is designed for use with wet hair and comes with a top attachment that turns your device into a pseudo-dryer so you can dry-dry damp hair before styling (it is not particularly effective on wet or too dry hair.) From there, depending on the hair type and desired style, you can simply attach one of the five other attachments. There are three brush attachments (a solid smoothing brush for thicker, curly) hair; a soft smoothing brush for fine hair; and a round volumizing brush (to lend volume to flat hair) plus two sizes of barrels, one for shafts (1
Why I Love It
] Well, for the part that differentiates the Dyson Airwrap from other hot-tools you did before According to its British inventor and engineer James Dyson, the product uses the so-called Coanda effect, which is essentially a term. When you turn on the device while you are using the curling attachments, it packs your hair and wraps it for you by using the high speed airflow (no jamming or turning). The air and controlled heat dry and curl your hair for about 10 seconds (there is also a cool setting to fix the style.)
The first time you use this thing is quite magical, but there is one clear learning curve (Just like the first time you used a curling iron and probably burned your fingers while trying to wrap your hair around it perfectly) on my first try with Air Wrap, I tried the wand out of my hair while it was still on – and ended with a clutter. After mastering the technique, I had symmetrical waves (in each kit, it's a clockwise and counterclockwise run so you can curl your hair away from both your face and your face.)
Yes, it does a more expensive AF, but in theory Dyson Airwrap can replace your hair dryer, the round brush, the straightener and the curling iron – and you save time. (This is a great benefit for someone like me who has a lot of long, straight and heavy hair that takes forever to dry and style.) Also, this is an investment in the long-term health of your hair. It does not tan your hair like many traditional hot tools, so you can use it more often without worrying about destroying your strands. (Related: 7 Important Steps to Preventing Hair Damage)
