Apparently, people with long luscious locks suffer a flyaway problem. Enter the Dyson Supersonic flyaway attachment. Now, as usual, several thousand Dyson engineers and hair scientists worked for years to solve flyaways – those hairs that stand out after you have so carefully blow-dried and brushed your hair. In laypersons terms, this little attachment replaces the round brush and blow dryer combo used in salons to tame flyaways one-handed at home.
Dyson engineers gathered more than 1.14 billion individual pieces of professional styling data, captured from over 10,000 hours of professional stylist trials, observing more than 420 stylists across 80 salons worldwide. Stylists used a round brush and blow dryer to smooth stray hairs, self-stylers seeking that same salon standard sleek finish turned to high heat solutions after styling, such as straighteners with fixed plates. This final pass exposes the hair to unnecessary additional heat, increasing the risk of preventable damage – damaged hair is weaker and more prone to breakage, perpetuating the prevalence of further flyaways.
Does the Supersonic flyaway nozzle work?
Yes – or so it did for the models we observed. What is more important is that it is one-handed use at home. The Flyaway attachment is for dry and straight hair. Here’s how Dyson describes it: “The new Flyaway Attachment harnesses the Coandă effect – a first engineered for styling within the Dyson Airwrap styler – to attract and lift longer hairs to the front while pushing flyaways through the tress and out of sight. Hiding flyaways increases strand alignment and enhances natural shine – all without extreme heat.”
