Prior to getting the Dyson Air Wrap, I was a straightener and a 1 inch curling iron girl. I almost never used a blow dryer and always just let my hair air dry. I’ve now had the Dyson for 2 months and have consistently used it once or twice per week since. Everyone has been asking my opinion on it so I thought I would put together this review so you can get a feel for this if you want to make the investment. I’m going to first let you know how I use it then summarize some of my person pros and cons!
Before we dive into my Dyson Air Wrap review, I want to first put a hair disclaimer out there. I have very thin hair that doesn’t often hold a curl well and my hair gets incredibly greasy very fast. It’s also important to note that my hair wavy when it dries and it doesn’t usually take long to style because there isn’t a lot of it. If you’re interested in my hair care routine, you can check it out here.
My first step when using the Dyson is to make sure my hair is damp, not fully wet. This helps to not have a lot of heat damage and contains some frizziness that can be created if you use it right out of the shower. Also, always be sure to use a heat protectant when applying any heat to your hair. Once my hair air dries, I use the brush attachment. I love this attachment and it is probably my favorite. It blow dries and straightens out my hair without needing a brush or using another tool.
My hair is sleek and straight in about 5 minutes. I literally can now leave my house within like an hour of showering, which was something I never really did. As you can see below, I use this attachment to straighten my hair. It is a little rounded so if you wanted to touch up your ends you could absolutely do that as well.
Depending on the day, the next attachment I go in with is the actual curling barrels. I like to use the thin longer ones. They do sell extra long ones on their website if you have longer hair. I will warn you, they don’t really curly your hair. I find it leaves my hair with a blowout look and not necessarily curls. The air wrap barrels were such a learning curve and even after two months of having this, I still feel like I don’t know how to properly use it.
I find it constantly leaves my hair with great volume as soon as it’s done but it falls out almost immediately. I’ve even tried hair spray and using rollers and it just doesn’t create the curl that I like on my hair like my traditional curler does. One other thing to note, I’m not sure if it’s just me but I get the worst knots in my hair using this attachment. I try to take only a little section of hair but some how will still get knots no matter what.
Aside from those two attachments, I also often reach for the mini blow dryer. This thing is powerful and seriously works. If you are considering the Dyson Blow Dryer or the Air Wrap, I would totally recommend getting the air wrap because for the price, you’re getting so much more than just a blow dryer.
There are more attachments but those three are generally my go to. I don’t think I could live without the brush attachment. In the fall I purchased the Revlon brush but it seriously does not compare to the Dyson. I can live without the air wrap part but I do use it and think the technology behind it is cool and helps to reduce heat on hair.
Okay now here is my pros and cons list of my Dyson Air Wrap Review…
One Styling Tool, Multiple Styles with Various Attachments
Fast and Effective
Less Heat Damage
Blowout Not Curl
I think the con that might not make this worth it to everyone is the price. The Dyson Air Wrap is currently $549.99. This is a serious investment that I think might not be worth it if you won’t use it everyday. I started out with a cheaper drying brush but once I was gifted this for my graduation, I won’t go back. It doesn’t leave my hair feeling fried like the cheaper version does. I will admit, I probably will still use my curling iron but I do love all of the other attachments that come with this.
This definitely was a long post to write and I still feel like I might not have covered everything! Please let me know if you have any other questions below about the air wrap. Also, if you know how to make the curls stay and look like curls, let me know lol! I hope this Dyson Air Wrap Review helped you see if this product is right for you!
