Step By Step
I am still learning how to play around with my Dyson Supersonic and create different hairstyles. The hair dryer will give you volume regardless of which nozzle you use, there is no doubt about that. If you have abnormally flat hair like me that falls flat after 5 minutes of having it curled, my advice is to use the diffuser nozzle. I always thought that diffusers are meant for wavy hair. Not quite. Whenever I want to maximize the volume of my hair, I always use the diffuser. The diffuser is also a great tool to stimulate natural drying and reduce frizz.
Read my steps below how to style your hair for your special occasion using the Dyson Supersonic.
- Once out of the shower do not brush out your hair
- Add a serum and texture cream to your hands and blend.
- Flip your head upside down and rake fingers to break up locks then scrunch hair back up.
4. Attach your diffuser onto your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer. The Dyson will give you volume regardless of which nozzle you use. If you have abnormally flat hair like me though that goes flat after 5 minutes of having it curled, my advise is for you is to use the diffuser nozzle. This nozzle maximizes the volume of my hair.
5. While your head is flipped over, using medium power and high heat, cup large sections of hair into the diffuser and lift upwards towards your roots and hold.
6. Once the front is done, flip hair back and finish drying the back area using the same motion with the diffuser.
7.Once completely dry, use the cool setting on your hair dryer and expand the curls with high airflow for more volume.
8. Pin your hair back into the side with an accessory of your choice.
If you prefer, because the diffuser will give your hair amazing volume, you can also let your hair loose and add a floral crown. This is a great hairstyle if you are the bride or a bridesmaid.
What I love about the Dyson Supersonic™
Super light and quiet. Dyson’s motor is placed in the handle so the weight of the dryer is evenly distributed. Compared to other hair dryers, it doesn’t leave your hands tired from holding it. The dryer is also very quiet compared to other standard hair dryers. I usually wash my hair late at night, and I used to worry about waking up Margot or Kam, but not anymore. You can’t even hear the Dyson Supersonic in the other room. Definitely a bonus.
Dries hair faster than any other dryer. I was curious to see how fast my hair will actually dry with the Dyson Supersonic so I timed it. 1 minute and 49 seconds. That is super quick! I have fine, but thick hair so time may vary depending on your hair type, but still. I can’t believe how quickly my hair dries. My hair is also a lot smoother when it dries and doesn’t feel like straw hair.
Is it Worth It?
My problem with hair dryers is that the heat damages your hair. Not the Dyson Supersonic! Its intelligent heat control helps prevent damage to your hair! The hair dryer has a thermal sensor that measures exit flow temperature 20 times per second, and transmits data to the machine’s microprocessor which intelligently controls the heating element. Over the years, my hair has been damaged from extreme heat of drying my hair, and the fact that I have blonde, processed hair does not help. I am so happy that I can finally dry my hair quickly without frying it. Blonde hair is so fragile and I love how the Dyson protects my hair’s natural shine, and doesn’t expose my hair to further damage.
Although I cannot speak for all hair types, if you have damaged, untamable, flat, frizzy, or blonde hair like me, then you need a Dyson Supersonic in your life. I am sorry girls, but Dyson has made the perfect hair dryer. Some of you may be on the fence about this investment, but I can attest. It is worth it, and your hair is worth it.
