A hair dryer so hyped and with a hefty price tag has to deliver results that no other comparable products have done so far. Does The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer stand up to its high expectations and, more importantly, is it worth the money?
Let’s look first at what comes in the box. The hair dryer itself looks futuristic and high quality. The design is typical Dyson, something you’re probably familiar with if you own other Dyson products. Aside from the main product, you’ll find in the box three nozzles (one for curly hair) and a practical non-slip mat (to avoid your hair dryer slipping off the counter).
As far as we know, it’s the only hair dryer that comes with the motor installed in the handle (and not in the head part) and the filter is removable for easy cleaning.
Now that you’ve got the basics, let’s talk about what makes this hair dryer stand out from the average hair dryers and (possibly) justifies its high price.
It’s definitely a quieter product than most hair dryers. It’s overall built quality is evident at a first look and this product is meant to last a long time.
The actual drying performance is what sets the Dyson Supersonic apart. Not only it keeps the temperature lower in order to avoid any damage to your hair caused by excessive heat, but the power is also much stronger which translates in much faster drying times. And it leaves your hair smoother and with less frizz.
Now, considering that this is a premium product that is meant to last years (unlike most hair dryers which only last a couple of years, some even less) and that the actual results are way better, you may want to invest in such a great hair dryer. However, if price is a big barrier, we have selected for you a few alternatives (check below) which, although they are less expensive, overall represent solid hair dryers with good customer reviews.
