Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!
I’m finally getting around to reviewing my Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer – it was a birthday gift from 2021 from the Mister and my parents – I think it is time to give my opinion since I’ve been using it for over a year now!
A bit of a back story – I used to buy a cheap hairdryer, and had to replace it every year or two. It always took FOREVER to dry my shoulder length (sometimes longer) fairly thick hair. Then I made an upgrade to a T3 Featherweight – which lasted for over ten years before it needed to be replaced. The T3 Featherweight, although faster than my previous hairdryers, still took a long time to dry my hair.
Now back to the Dyson. I don’t always blow dry my hair every time I wash it, but when I do, I want it to be as fast as possible – and I always use a heat protectant product to minimize damage. [info in italics taken from the Sephora Canada website]
What it is: A hair dryer that dries hair fast with no extreme heat
What Else You Need to Know:
– Includes a range of attachments designed to style different types of hair
– Magnetic styling attachments for easy fitting and 360° rotation
– Intelligent heat control helps protect your shine: Air temperature is measured 40 times every second, keeping the temperature under control
– Air Multiplier™ technology amplifies air by three times for faster drying
– Acoustically Tuned: The powerful motor is tuned to produce one inaudible frequency, and it’s enveloped by a vibration-reduction system
– Three precise speed settings: High for fast drying and styling, medium for regular drying, low for diffusing
– Four precise heat settings: 100°C fast drying and styling, 80°C regular drying, 60°C cooler drying and diffusing, 28°C constant cold
– Cold shot: 28°C cold shot sets your hair after styling
When I got my Supersonic, there was a promotion to get the Presentation Case and an extra attachment (or two) – so I have the Supersonic dryer, the presentation case, two different concentrator nozzles, the diffuser, and the wide tooth comb attachment. There is a new flyaway attachment that came out recently that I’d like to get.
I like that this hair dryer is small and lightweight. It is also not super noisy. It is easy to adjust between settings. And the attachments swap out easily as they’re magnetic. The cord is also really long which I so appreciate!
I mainly use the larger concentrator nozzle or the diffuser – depending on if I want to dry my hair straight or wavy / curly. And if I only want to dry my hair in a hurry (no careful blowout), I can do it in 12 MINUTES – compared to my old hair dryer which took a minimum of 45 minutes and even then it wasn’t 100% dry. So for me it is worth it.
I never store my hair dryer in the case, it is usually sitting next to the case on my dresser. I store the attachments and my brush in the case.
Also – a little review of the Quo Beauty Double Ceramic Large Round Brush [info in italics taken from the Shoppers Drug Mart website]
The double ceramic large round brush feature a ceramic round head for even heat & smoothing while blowdry styling. Head is also vented for quicker styling & heat distribution. In a trendy rose gold & white palette.
I had a natural boar bristle round brush a million years ago, and it ALWAYS got stuck in my hair no matter how careful I was when I used it. I decided to try a round brush again when I got my Dyson as my current hair stylist used one with her Dyson one of the times she cut my hair – so I really watched her technique and have tried to replicate it. The Quo brush is really nice and light weight, and does work well when I want to try to do a salon style blowout – I’m still working on my technique, but it shows promising results so far. And most importantly, it doesn’t get stuck in my hair.
Have you tried either the Dyson Supersonic or the Quo Double Ceramic Large Round Brush?
Thanks for reading
