I WAS actually a bit emotional once I first used the Dyson barrel attachment.
The air flows out sizzling and quick, in a round movement. So the minute you part a bit of hair and maintain it as much as the product, it sucks it spherical for you, so all you need to do is transfer the styler nearer to your head and maintain it.
And right here is the magical bit – you are able to do this with ONE HAND.
In simply 20 minutes, I’ve received a blowdry even some £50-a-pop salons can’t obtain.

LOSER: Hairdryer and brush
For me the curls are by no means tight sufficient, I’m for ever ripping bits of my hair out on the barrel brush and it normally takes about an hour.
No injury… in contrast to the straighteners
Jenny Francis admits that her hair just isn’t straightforward to straighten, however the Dyson gadget managed it in 16 minutesCredit score: stewart williams
MY hair doesn’t go straight simply, so I’m sceptical concerning the Dyson’s claims that it could actually do the job.
This attachment is a big brush with air that’s pressured out from inside. Simply part hair and go it via the comb.
Because of the velocity the air comes out at, it dries actually rapidly regardless that the product won’t ever get hotter than 150C. The entire job takes 16 minutes.

As soon as I’ve washed my hair I’ve to dry it with a hairdryer earlier than I can straighten it. The entire job takes 32 minutes.
The result’s simply as straight because the Dyson, however the straighteners’ 200C warmth leaves my hair dry and broken.
Not nice – curling tongs do a greater job
Jenny Francis admits that free waves should not the Dyson’s ‘robust level’Credit score: stewart williams
FOR a free curl or wave, Dyson suggests utilizing the smaller barrel attachment. Twist the hair barely earlier than letting it wrap itself across the styler.
Whereas it does an amazing job of drying it, the styler simply needs to twist my hair once more quite than wave it.
I don’t assume this fashion is the Airwrap’s robust level.

WINNER: Curling tong
I’ve to dry my hair earlier than utilizing the tong, which isn’t as useful because the Dyson. However the curling tong just isn’t too fiddly and all I’ve to do is wrap sections of hair round it, maintain for eight seconds and launch.
It achieves a greater wave than the Dyson and stays in place for longer.
So much much less faff than rollers, by a good distance
Jenny Francis loves utilizing Dyson’s Airwrap for extra quantity and says it’s far much less faffCredit score: stewart williams
I ATTACH the Dyson volumising brush and maintain on the roots because it fires out the warmth and quick air.
I drag it to the top of the hair, wrap hair into the basis and maintain for about 20 seconds earlier than releasing.
My roots have an prompt carry and it holds nicely after. It’s lots much less faff than rollers by a good distance.
Dyson is a ‘lot much less faff’ than the normal curlers
LOSER: Velcro rollers
I part off the hair, wrap it across the curler and pin it in place. Then I blast with warmth, depart for at the least 40 minutes, spray with hairspray, then take away.
It provides good quantity and a easy end. The one downside is that it’s virtually not possible to do the again by your self. It’s good however tech is best.
