You know you’ve heard of the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer and wondered if it is worth the $400 price tag. I was lucky enough to test out this amazing new dryer and share my busy mom’s review with my readers.
Good things, guys, GOOOOD things!
I hate doing my hair. That strangely feels really good to admit. For blog photos, I always try to appear put together, but the truth is, the struggle is real. I always feel like there are 37 other things I’d rather be doing than applying products, blowing it out, applying more products, curling or straightening, and maybe even applying a final shellac of products. On the flip side, I don’t feel human without my hair (and especially my makeup!) done. So I needed something to meet me halfway to make the task easier.
As you know, I just delivered our second baby less than 2 weeks ago. Since joining the 2 under 2 club, my personal morning routine has fallen by the wayside. My quiet cup of tea and makeup ritual has been replaced by quickly throwing on my momiform, throwing my hair up in a non-blogger-worthy topknot, throwing on my glasses, and rushing to nurse tiny human before the small human wakes up.
When I first became a mom 20 months ago, I finally got my go-to daily makeup routine down to about 15 minutes. My hair, well, it has definitely suffered. I’d love to be one of those wash n go types, but with my waves I HAVE to do my hair. My mane must be curled or straightened – there is no in between. I have a horrible habit of sleeping on wet hair resulting in frizz, breaks, and a mess of dents. But I have a goal to make myself more of a priority, and a proper hair care routine was key.
After I got pregnant with Wyatt, I decided to lighten my hair and chop it into a trendy bob. While my husband loves the short ‘do, I much prefer the styling freedom that comes with my usual long locks. Because I have SO MUCH HAIR, the chop helped saved obnoxious styling time. I also prefer my hair darker, but find that when I lighten my hair it doesn’t retain so much water, making it dry faster. Unfortunately, I also sacrificed hair health by drying it out with lightening processes.
When Dyson came out with the Supersonic Hair Dryer I was beyond excited. In true Dyson form, they’ve completely revamped the concept of a basic hair dryer. It is a high velocity hair dryer with the motor in the handle. Good bye tired sore noodle arms after styling. Remember how I said my usual drying system fries my hair? The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer helps maintain natural shine and prevent damage. Air temperature is measured 20 times per second keep the temperature under control.
Any mom would agree she would pretty much sell her soul to keep her toddler and or newborn asleep. Even if I blew out my hair on a different floor of the house, alllll the way on the other side, that noise would wake up one if not both kids. The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is incredibly quiet thanks to special technology that softens the sound and vibration. This is what I call winning at life.
Do you have a collection of random hair tool attachments that never get used? (Raising both hands over here!) Attachments are usually a pain to put on and take off. Especially when products are all over my hands. All of the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer’s attachments (smoothing nozzle, styling concentrator, and diffuser) are magnetic. How awesome is that?! Snapping them on and off is a breeze. Because I am always trying to shave time off of my beauty routine, I frequently try to skip the all-over drying time and go right to styling on my sopping wet hair. This resulted in tons of frizz and extra fried ends. The smoothing nozzle allows me to both dry and style at once, making the process substantially faster without sacrificing hair health.
Lastly, the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer features 3 precise speed settings – fast drying, regular drying and styling. Additionally, this must-have beauty tool features 4 temperate settings – constant cold, low, medium and high.
So, is the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer worth it?
If you are considering some me-gifting or splurging, I would suggest spending the $399 on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer. While arguably the most expensive hair dryer on the market, it is also the best and worth the investment on yourself. As a very busy mom to a toddler and a newborn, I know I deserve to take care of myself and simplify my beauty routine. The advanced features of the Supersonic as well as the amount of use it will get make this splurge 100% worth every penny. I will be able to go for a trim less frequently and can go without an arsenal of reverse-the-damage products. I will save an average of $100 a month on salon visits and treatment products now that my hair is well-cared for.
