In case you haven’t heard, Dyson have released a hairdryer. It’s been the biggest news in hairdryers since hairdryers were invented.
And it comes with a pretty big price tag so it’s been causing a lot of news.
I was very excited to get my hands on the new Dyson Supersonic hairdryer and I made a full Dyson review video. In the video, I do a full test-drive of the hairdryer and it’s also a tutorial of how I blow dry my hair if you’re interested.
The questions kept coming after that post – you really wanted to know how does the Dyson hairdryer work on curly hair, what’s the Dyson diffuser like and how does it compare to other dryers
Well I finally filmed it so here it is.
And spoiler alert, I really liked it.
Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer review in curly hair – Dyson diffuser test-drive

I followed the same steps as on my curly hair routine video here so there would be an equal comparison. The only difference is that I used the Dyson diffuser instead of my usual diffuser (either Parlux or ghd Air).
Some points to note about the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer:
- The design of the hairdryer is unsurpassed, but what surprised me was the design of the diffuser. The diffuser appears to be the same but the air distribution is really different.
- So often I feel that hairdryer companies’ focus on power and on heat and the diffuser is often left behind. The Dyson diffuser though is incredibly well designed and it cut my drying time by at least by half or more.
- The diffuser itself is slightly smaller than other hairdryers but I didn’t really notice this to make a big difference in my hair.
- The heat was so good that I actually had to turn it down. The lowest speed was perfect for drying my curls.
I’m still apprehensive of that price tag in comparison to regular professional hairdryers for straight hair. It’s good but I’m not sure that it’s worth the extra money for an occasional use product. However if you blow dry your hair a lot, or if you travel frequently, I think it’s a really amazing dryer.
Where to buy the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer in Australia, the UK and USA
If you’re looking to buy the Dyson Supersonic, or any expensive styling tool, I recommend testing it out first. Check if your salon has one or order it from an online retailer that allows returns.
Here’s where you can buy a Dyson hairdryer online (and they all accept returns in the original packaging):
- Australia – David Jones
- UK – John Lewis
- USA – Ulta
Check it out in the video above and I’d love to know what you think. Have you bought the new Dyson hairdryer? Would you spend that much on a hairdryer?

Can’t afford a Dyson – what should I buy instead?
I personally love my Karmin
My hair is very similar to yours, though probably a bit thinner. I also follow a similar routine. How long did it take you to dry your hair?
Hair Romance says
It’s really quick, maybe 10 mins? I dry it to about 90% and then let my hair air dry as I find it keeps volume in my roots but doesn’t create a lot of frizz x
I’m glad to see that the Dyson is working out well for curly hair. The price tag is ridiculous though; I’d say $400 for a hair dryer is out of reach for most regular working class people. The design is innovative though, it’s really cool how they managed to fit the motor inside the actual handle.
Hair Romance says
thanks Jackie, I agree that price is super high but I can see where the investment has gone to create such an innovative design.
So the clips is that for height or to direct your curls ,did you put curl cream before gel ?
Hair Romance says
Hi Noelene, yes I put in curl cream first (not shown in this video) then gel, then the clips to add volume at the roots. Check out my curly hair routine for the full explanation 🙂 xx
