We've spoken to long-haired ladies on the Real Homes team, and those who own/have tried the Dyson all used terms like 'life-changing' and 'holy grail' when talking about its ability to transform hair in a matter of seconds.
Yes, the speed of this hair dryer is mind blowing (it's not called Supersonic for nothing) – it pumps out 41 litres of air per second. Which explains how it can dry your hair so quickly. For women (and men) with long tresses and busy schedules, those seconds really make the difference in the morning.
The other feature our Dyson converts couldn't stop talking about was how soft and touchable their hair felt after using the Supersonic. No one can quite agree on how this softness is achieved; is it because you're drying your hair for less time, or is it because of the heat regulator built into the machine that promises to minimise heat damage from the drying?
The verdict is clear: this hair dryer does achieve results that are better than any other hair dryer currently on the market.
Which brings us to the crucial point about the Dyson making for a perfect Christmas gift (if you're still shopping). All the women we spoke to said that they had received their Supersonic as a gift, which suggests that, despite the amazing results, they probably would have hesitated to buy the hairdryer themselves. And, in our opinion, this is what makes it the ultimate gift-worthy item: totally worth it, but something your gift recipient probably wouldn't buy for themselves.
Buying for a long-haired man? He'll love it too, we reckon.
