As someone who struggled through my teenage years with really difficult hair, I can testify that a good hairdryer can make all the difference in the survival of those turbulent years! Yes, it may sound shallow to you. I get it.
However, during your teenage years, when so many things are changing and you are trying to figure out who you are, looking and feeling good is so important. And the only way you can do that is with the right tools!
The beauty industry has made huge strides since I was a teenager, products have improved and become more accessible to those who aren’t professionals. One of the biggest changes has been the introduction of Dyson hair products.
Dyson has taken the world by storm with their products, most famously known for their vacuum cleaner, but it’s their hairdryer that we’ll be talking about here!
Dyson is famously known for its awesome products, but they are also known for its exorbitant prices. Quality doesn’t come cheap, and Dyson is proof of that. The question is, is the Dyson Hair Dryer worth it? Is it really worth splurging on something as simple as a hairdryer?
Here we will explore what exactly the Dyson hairdryer does and if it’s really worth the high price.

Before we get into the big debate of whether the Dyson hairdryer is actually worth the price, let’s dig into what it actually does, how it works and how it compares to other hair dryers on the market.
What is the Dyson Hair Dryer and how does it work?
The Dyson hairdryer is not only a pretty product, which it also happens to be, by the way! It’s compact, stylish and looks futuristic! You gotta love the design, but really it’s how it works that is the most impressive part of it!
The main difference between the Dyson hair dyer and all others on the market is the heat! The Dyson hair dryer is engineered to protect hair from extreme heat damage, while still drying the hair quickly. It measures the air temperature over 40 times a second and regulates the heat.
I think we can all agree that the best hair dryers are the ones that style the hair quickly without causing heat damage. Before Dyson, the hotter the hairdryer, the quicker the styling.
Well, Dyson changed that, and that’s definitely a welcoming change! The power is incredible and it’s quieter than other hairdryers too.
The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer comes with 5 attachments:
- (New) Flyaway attachment – Hides flyaways under longer hair for a smooth, shiny finish
- Styling concentrator – For precision styling
- Diffuser – Helps reduce frizz and create defined curls and waves
- Gentle air attachment – Fast yet gentle styling for fine hair and sensitive scalps
- Wide-tooth comb – Helps shape and lengthen curly and textured hair as it dries
The attachments cover every hair type, as well as straight and curly hair looks. The lovely touch to these hair attachments is that they are magnetic.
Most other hairdryers have attachments that need to click on, and then after time, they become loose. They are also harder to take on and off, especially when the hairdryer is hot, which is often the case!
Another difference between the Dyson hairdryer and most others on the market is that the motor is in the handle, not the head. It also has an LED light warning you when the filter needs changing.
How to use:
The functions are actually pretty similar to all hairdryers. The Dyson Supersonic comes with 3-speed settings, high, medium and low. High for fast drying, medium for medium drying and low for diffusing.
It also has 4 heat settings. High, medium, low and a cool shot which is always recommended to use once you’ve finished styling your hair. The same way that you seal your makeup with a setting powder or spray, with hair the best way to seal it after styling is with a cold blast, locking and sealing the ends.
It gives your hair a shinier and smoother appearance, a cool button is really a must-have in a hairdryer.
Lightweight, quick, less hair damage, quiet, smoothes the hair in no time are some of the Dyson Hair Dryers impressive claims! But the big question is, do you need this blow dryer?
So the short answer is no. There are other hair dryers on the market that will do the job too! However, (yep, there’s always a however!) it is an amazing hairdryer and a cut above all others in every way!
It’s easy to see why it costs so much more than an average hairdryer, but I get it, it’s hard to spend so much on something like a hairdryer. Let’s face it, it’s a fortune! You have to weigh up if it’s worth it for you in terms of your hair type, how quickly your hair gets damaged and of course, if you can afford it!
I don’t recommend taking out a mortgage to buy the Dyson hairdryer, however, if you have really difficult hair, and you can afford it, then I would say, go for it! You won’t regret it:)
