My name is Caitlin and I’m a 27-year-old woman from metro Adelaide, South
Australia. My hair is very thick and very curly that’s prone to frizz and very dry
ends. I work a job that I have to have my hair up for so it doesn’t get as much love
and care, as it deserves. I also horse ride so having a helmet on and sweating
makes it even worse. I do try and use high quality shampoo, conditioner and a
leave in treatment of which I am currently using MilkShake products.
Initial First Impressions
The hairdryer arrived in such neat packaging you can’t help but be impressed
with the sleek way that Dyson presents its products. All the components and
attachments were in their own little slots in the box which would also make any
need to return it that much easier. There’s nothing worse than trying to put
something neatly back in its packaging apart from maybe the return itself.
There was no fussing around with a lot of packaging, plastics and ties either. It’s
pretty much open the box and you’re good to go.
I’m not normally a pink-loving girl but I did like the fuchsia of the main hairdryer
itself paired with the matte dark grey of the body of the unit and its attachments.
The bladeless design is very impressive but it makes you hope that the product
isn’t all just looks.
I used the hairdryer on hair that I had towel dried and put my MilkShake leave in
treatment in as I normally would with my old hairdryer. Normally it would take
me upwards of 20 minutes to completely dry my hair and I would always find
that my ends would be particularly dry afterwards.
Picking up the Dyson the first thing I noticed was how wonderfully light it was to
hold up for a period of time. I found that my arm didn’t get sore at all and it was
just as easy for me to use in my weaker left hand as it was in my right. Turning it
on it was so quiet and the heat was almost instantaneous.
Halfway through I switched attachments from the standard nozzle to the
diffuser, which was a seamless and quick transition thanks to the magnetic
connections. When in place the attachments felt sturdy and secure.
As soon as I started to dry my hair I set a timer and in the end it took me 3
minutes and 58 seconds to completely dry my hair. That is one heck of a
difference down from 20+ minutes. My hair also felt dry but not like it had all the
moisture taken out of it. I saw a noticeable difference in the frizz level but there
still was some frizz present.
On first use I had it a little hotter than I needed it so I’m pretty excited to keep
experimenting with the Dyson.
After continued use I’ve found that my hair feels so much healthier and there is a
noticeable reduction in the frizz. The heat is very even and the bladeless design
is very impressive and means that I don’t have to clean dust or hair from the fan
However it is hard to justify the steep price tag as I feel you’re paying for the
Dyson name more than anything. Their bladeless technology has been around for
a while now and if the price were a bit lower they’d have many more people
buying this product. That still doesn’t mean that I won’t be recommending it
because I definitely will be, to anyone who will listen to me in fact.
Design I would give it a 10/10 as it’s appealing, innovative and very light. There’s
not other hairdryer like it on the market.
Functionality I would also give 10/10 as it dries quickly, thoroughly and in a way
that doesn’t strip the moisture from my hair.
Value for money I would give an 8/10 as it is still a very expensive product at
Overall I would rate the Dyson Hairdryer 9/10.
