Dyson Has Just Dropped a Hair-Smoothing Blow-Dryer Attachment
The Dyson Supersonic just got better. With a newly-released attachment, the hair dryer is equipped to get rid of flyaways more than ever. And, the science behind it is even cooler.
The new flyaway attachment harnesses the Coanda effect which attracts and lifts longer hairs to the front, while pushing flyaways through the tress. Basically, you get a smooth finish with natural shine and strand alignment without the extreme heat.
"Our engineers are driven to rethink convention and our obsession with airflow led us to push the potential of Coanda after observing how stylists use a ‘brush and blow dryer’ technique to smooth flyaways," says Emma Sheldon, Dyson hair care category director.
"Traditionally, this skilled technique involves the stylist using a round brush to section and manage the hair, while directing airflow from the dryer to push the flyaways into the style and out of sight. We set out to find a way to innovate a way to mechanize this method for the everyday styler. The new Dyson Flyaway Attachment harnesses the phenomenon of Coanda to smooth flyaways out of sight, without exposing the hair to extreme heat damage," she adds.
Now, the flyaway attachment looks complicated—in a way that makes you think how you could work such a strange tool—but from watching video demos, all you have to do is hold your Dyson up and it will do it all for you. Pretty useful considering men's hairstyles as of late tend to be on long side.
Dyson's new flyaway attachment is compatible with existing models of the Supersonic hair dryer, and it will be included in the box of new machines starting September 15.
