Gleeful Faces and a ‘Conspiracy’
I’ve heard and read so much about this hairdryer and now it’s been presented to me! Along with 3 gleeful faces, one of which was the ‘conspirator’ – the hubby no less, who had secretly planned this as an early Mother’s Day and Birthday present for me, and kept it hidden in the house with the kids’ help.
The ‘Candy Store’ and the Mother’s Life
Holding the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer in my hands, I’m like a kid in a candy store, hardly able to contain my excitement in front of the kids.
For many ladies, our hair is our ‘crowning glory’. With age, work stresses and the heavy mental load of motherhood, we do not have much time for self-care, let alone proper care of our hair. Furthermore, ever since my cancer remission, my hair has been so dry and brittle (as my body no longer produces any natural hormones and I can’t go on any hormonal replacement therapies due to cancer), I’ve been dropping chunks of hair daily. I thought nothing can be done about it (except to use more expensive hair conditioners to soften it)….until I received this gift.
The Supersonic Experience
After 2 days of using the Dyson Supersonic, I can finally see why it earns such glowing reviews everywhere.
Look and Feel:
At first glance, the Dyson Supersonic exudes a sleek and stylish look. Gone is the bulky head of typical hairdryers. Instead of an air vent and motor, is a see-through hole! No visible motor! The motor is neatly tucked into the handle of the unit, making it extremely ergonomic and incredibly easy to hold while drying my hair. Buttons and controls are kept to a minimum (4 only).
The unit I have comes in classy Fushia Nickel . What surprises me is that despite its metallic look, the surface has a nice matt texture. This greatly enhances the grip and hold. Changing the accessories is a breeze. Accessories are attached to the Dyson Supersonic via a magnet. So they can be quickly (and quietly) switched with ease. Sweet!
Using the Dyson Supersonic:
Using the Dyson Supersonic, the time taken to dry my hair has been halved! Halving the hair-drying time is a BIG deal as it means my hair gets half the exposure to heat and damage.
Given the Dyson Supersonic’s 3 airflow settings and 4 heat level options, drying my hair has become an enjoyable experience (I used to dread blow drying my hair)! Unlike the typical hairdryers where the heat level and airflow strength are all combined into one control, now I have the option of:
a) Maximum Heat and Maximum Airflow – For a quick dry or to dry the thicker areas of the hair
b) Strong Heat and Weaker Airflow – For control over styling on the go
c) Minimal Heat and Stronger Air Flow – To style and dry the finer hair tip ends to prevent splitting and fraying
An added advantage I didn’t quite anticipate is this. The Dyson Supersonic comes with a complete set of hair styling accessories which I can share with my ‘tweenage’ daughter. So yay to more Mommy-Daughter bonding time over hair care and styling.
More about the Dyson Supersonic
In addition to its sleek and stylish design, the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer uses the following Dyson patented technology to enhance the hair care experience:
- The Intelligent Heat Control using a microprocessor in the head, intelligently measures the heat at 40 times per second to control the heating element. This means that only the sufficient amount of heat is transmitted and the risk of overheating of the hair is significantly reduced.
- Air Multiplier Technology amplifies the air drawn by 3 times producing a high-pressure, high velocity jet of air, reducing the time it takes to dry and style hair.
- Dyson’s V9 Digital Motor with its 13-blade impeller generates up to 3.2kPa of pressure, propelling 13 litres of air up to the amplifier every second producing a strong and constant airflow.
The Dyson Supersonic is more than just using a hairdryer. It is an important aspect of personal wellness and self-care for all ladies and more so for me, a cancer patient in remission. I am so stoked to own this Dyson Supersonic hairdryer. It is indeed the BEST Mothers’ Day gift I’ve received so far.
Warranty: The Dyson Supersonic comes with a 2-5 year guarantee and a 14-day money back. For more info and deals on the Dyson Supersonic, visit this webpage: https://www.dyson.com.sg/
