This is a REAL Review with Genuine photos

I bought my Dyson hair products (Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer and Corrale Hair Straightner) in December 2020. I used QVC because of a £5 credit and Boots because I would get lots of points.

Without this the Supersonic hairdryer would have cost around £300 and the Corrale straightener £400.

At the time these were the cheapest ways to purchase them. I possibly could have waited for discounts in January but I wasn’t patient.

After using and trying them both for myself, I can honestly say they are worth the price but there are few drawbacks you should know…

Dyson Corrale Hair Straightner Review

To my knowledge, the new Dyson Corrale is the ONLY hybrid cordless hair straightener. This is by far its biggest selling point.

Full Straightner KitIt also promises to create less hair damage than a standard-plated straightener, while heating up almost instantaneously.

You are able to select a specific range of heat temperature. This means you can select a lower setting if you’re worried about heat damage.

First Impressions

It is a lot bigger and chunkier than you would expect. However, it’s not heavy and feels very smooth to touch.

One of the most annoying and infuriating things is the “airplane mode” latch. I couldn’t understand what to do with it and had to watch several YouTube videos to figure it out.

The straightner charges very quickly. Mine fully charged within 30 minutes and the batter is still full after using it for around 15 minutes.

What Is It Like To Use?

When I tried it for myself I really started understanding what all of the fuss was about.

The Corrale utilises a patented heating technology and moves smoothly through the hair without snagging, pulling or splaying.

The flexi-plates also mean it evenly spreads the heat across the entire plate. This plus the three different heat settings means you don’t have to worry about heat damage.

The strokes are smooth and seamless. Using a lower heat and slowly working my way up to a comfortable temperature means I got silky, softglossy and poker-straight hair with no burning smells.

I also didn’t experience any “smoking” that is common with other hair straightners like GHD.

My Final Verdict

It works great on my very difficult to manage hair. It’s quick, effective, safe and gets amazing results.

Full Straightner ChargerHowever, as I run my hair through my super sleek locks, I just can’t shake off the fact that in order to get these results, I had to spend £400.

For someone who isn’t very wealthy or who uses hair straighteners very often Dyson’s Corrale seems like a very reckless investment.

However, if you can afford it and want to eliminate the worry of heat damage then this is for you. You will enjoy amazing safely straightend hair all with no chords.

But for everyone else, its high cost holds it back significantly.

Dyson Hair Dryer Review

The promise of this is super fast drying along with no hair heat damage. It is aesthetically pleasing with a minimal and functional design. Thus, it has very few buttons and it’s smaller than the regular hand drier.Dyson Supersonic Dryer

Unfortunately, all of this innovation comes at a very high cost. The Dyson hair care Supersonic hair dryer is currently the most expensive hair dryer on the market.

This crazy high price tag is a sticking point for most people but let’s see what you get.

For £400 Dyson promises to “decrease flyaways and frizz by up to 61%, increase shine by up to 132% and increase smoothness by 75%”. They also claim that using this dryer will protect your hair from heat damage and will make it dry faster.

I can confirm that this latter claim is true, it does dry faster.

My hair typically takes about 15-20 minutes to dry but the Supersonic only took me 5 minutes.

This should not be surprising to anyone because Dyson are known for blow driers and fans so this dryer should be amazing. And it is.

What’s In The Box?

Hair Dryer KitDepending on which package you get (I got the special edition pack) the dryer will come with a range of neatly packaged accessories.

This can include a hanging hook, a range of nozzles and diffusers.

First Impressions

The dryer has a small range of buttons which only gives you the option to change the velocity and cold/heat mode.

To be fair that’s all you really need.

The dryer is also very small. But the heat and airflow both pack a powerful punch when you turn it on.

My Verdict

To put it simply, Dyson’s Supersonic is the most powerful hair dryer that I’ve ever used.

It makes a lot of advancements in engineering with an improved design and powerful performance.

However, I also understand that not everyone can afford the ridiculously high price tag.Dyson Dryer Stand Infographic
