When I saw Dyson’s Airwrap, I felt a few things. First (and I’m sure many of you felt this way as well lol), $500?!?! BIH! But then I started thinking of how much I had spent on individual hair tools over the years and which ones always performed best. Unfortunately for my wallet, it seems that the more expensive tools last longer and use higher quality materials that minimize damage to the hair. We don’t need to talk about the glass Conair flat iron that I used to use in college that had sharp edges on the plates that basically ripped my ends off, or the other flat iron I had that only had a ceramic coating on the plates that wore off. We’re past that.
Dyson touts the Airwrap has having a few benefits – you aren’t supposed to get heat damage because the tool never gets above 302 degrees (I use my styling tools at 375 or even 400 at times for my hair), it dries hair faster, is multi-use, and apparently enhances shine while minimizing frizz. Since Ulta has an amazing return policy, I thought I’d give it a go, but I was skeptical. None of the reviews I had seen were on kinky curly hair, and if someone’s hair is going to break a tool, it’s usually mine! It usually takes me about 2 to 2.5 hours to blow out my hair as well, and I HATE the experience. It’s just frustrating. So, I really wanted to see how the Dyson would work. You can check out my experience using the brush in the video below, and I plan to play with it more using the other curling and dryer attachments. And there’s an update regarding testing after the jump!
