Attention beauty gurus and Dyson fans, the long-awaited Dyson Airstrait hair straightener(opens in a new tab) has finally hit the market. If you loved the idea of the Dyson AirWrap but don’t wear your hair curled, this one’s for you.
This innovative hair tool is designed to take your hair from wet to dry, straight, and fabulous without hot plates or heat damage. Instead, the Dyson Airstrait uses intelligent heat control technology to regulate the temperature and protect your hair from damage.
Let’s dive into the science behind this hair wizardry. When you change your hairstyle, the hydrogen bonds inside your hair are broken and reformed into a new shape. This process can be done with heat or moisture, but using too much heat (as you know) isn’t good for your hair. That’s where the Dyson Airstrait comes in.
The Dyson Airstrait keeps a watchful eye on the temperature, diligently measuring the airflow temp a whopping 30 times per second. Skip the blow dryer and straightener combo and use the Airstraight to dry and straighten wet hair simultaneously with three different preset temperatures: 175°F, 230°F, and 285°F. You can also employ higher temps (250°F or 285°F) or use the Boost mode for effective dry styling.
“This expertise, which we’ve gained over the last 25 years, is what has enabled us to deliver our first wet-to-dry straightener, with no hot plates and no extreme heat damage,” James Dyson, founder and chief engineer of Dyson, said in a press release(opens in a new tab). “Delivering the ease-of-use that people love about straighteners but with high-velocity air blades saves time, maintains hair strength, and achieves an everyday natural straight style.”
