Dyson Airstrait is a wet to dry hair straightener that uses air, no extreme heat.
Wet to dry hair straighteners have garnered popularity due to their sheer convenience. Cutting down styling time by simultaneously drying and styling is indeed tempting. Yet, the risk of heat damage to wet hair remains a concern with many products on the market. Our Dyson Airstrait review dives into this innovative tool that stands out from the rest. Dyson, always at the forefront of technology, introduces the Airstrait — a wet to dry straightener devoid of damaging hot plates. Instead, it harnesses the power of airflow for both drying and styling, ensuring optimal hair health.
Promises vs. Performance: Dyson Airstrait is amazing.
Dyson Airstrait has revamped wet to dry styling by using no hot plates and just air. The style features three preset temperatures of 175°F, 230°F, and 285°F wet to dry, and 250°F and 285°F dry. It also has intuitive airflow fo quieter, more efficient styling, which senses when hair is between the arms and automatically drops to low airflow when hair is not. The airflow completely stops for no noise.
Intelligent heat control and the Hyperdymium™ motor are two other technologies Dyson has included in the Airstrait device. Intelligent heat control is made of glass bead thermistors in the machine arms that regulate airflow temperature up to 30 times per second preventing heat damage. The Hyperdymium™ motor is a 13-blade impeller spinning up to 106k rpm and propelling 11.9 liters of air per second. This is what allows for a powerful enough air pressure to straighten hair as it dries. Airstrait also features negative ions to help reduce static.
How To Use
Use on wet or dry hair. With wet hair, Airstrait straightens and dries at the same time with 3 preset temperatures – 175°F, 230°F, and 285°F. For best results, use on towel dried hair. On dry hair, use the 250°F, 285°F, or optional Boost mode to refresh and straighten.
My Review thoughts on Dyson Airstrait
Let’s start this review with the following statement, Dyson Airstrait is replacing all of my hot hair straightener tools. Why? It’s phenomenal at simultaneously drying and straightening hair, giving sleek, frizz-free, smooth, shiny results. I was shocked at how smooth Dyson Airstrait Straightener arms glide through the hair with no snagging, tugging, or getting caught. For best results, use glide it slowly.
Everything about Dyson Airstrait was thoughtfully created, from the technology to the design. The controls are carefully placed where you won’t change the settings while styling. One of my favorite features is the smart airflow sensor. The device literally senses when it is in your hands, pausing the airflow when set down, resuming when picked back up.
After the full review I found that the biggest drawback to Dyson Airstrait is the lack of versatility. It’s solely for drying and straightening hair. You won’t be able to use it to curl or wave hair, nor does it add any volume – it’s your typical hair straightener, just with an added hair dryer bonus. While it’s for a niche market, it’s still a phenomenal hair tool that sets the bar high for other wet to dry stylers.
Quick Rating Rundown
How It Compares To Other Dyson Hair Tools
Really, the Dyson Airstrait Straightener is unique and not like any other Dyson hair tools. The only comparison can be made to the Airwrap Smoothing Brush, which allows you to dry and smooth hair at the same time. It can’t be compared to the Corrale, which solely uses heat to style, or the other Airwrap tools that can be used to curl hair, create blowout looks, and add volume to the hair.
How does Dyson Airstrait compare to other wet to dry stylers?
ghd Duet Style
The ghd Duet Style is a great tool for two things and two things only: drying and straightening hair to achieve sleek, shiny results in one step. Its plates are smooth and glide like butter through hair when styling, but you do need a brush to guide the hair through the plates to achieve tangle free results. Needless to say, I had to use both hands to operate ghd Duet Style to ensure the section of hair stayed clamped as the plates glided down the section of hair (and my arms get tired fast from this!). It does produce great results, and its compact design is perfect for travel/small storage spaces.
Remington Wet2Style is another wet to dry styler that has been around for awhile. The flat iron features a unique venting system using hot plates to remove moisture from hair when it’s damp, taking the hair to dry and smooth all in one. However, this one isn’t as consistent with results and it takes a long longer. When using this Remington hair tool, it takes me nearly twice as long as it does with the ghd Duet Style or the Dyson Airstrait.
