I tried the new Dyson Airwrap and I have some thoughts. This post + demonstration video is all about it!
For a little backstory, I did not like the original Dyson blowdryer when I first tried it. I can’t really put my finger on why other than I felt like the air flow was too strong and whipped my hair around too much. My hair dried really quickly but felt like it was in rough shape when it was dry!
I was so intrigued by the Dyson Airwrap because I’ve never seen anything like it before. You can read more about it here but the basic concept is the airflow pattern pushes your hair around the barrel and that is what curls it. It was so cool to see a demonstration so I was thrilled to finally get my hands on one!
In the video I demonstrated using the tool with all 4 attachments! I thought that was the best way to give you a thorough picture of all the styling options the tool offers!
The video is going to give you the best impressions of how the tool worked for me but I’ll break it down a little bit for you here!
I liked the tool, it was really fun to use and it did dry my hair quickly! I liked the smoothing brush and was able to get crazy, crazy volume with the round brush attachment. It was actually the most volumized my hair has ever been post-blowdry.
The curling part was fun and mind-blowing. The curls were bouncy and light, and I was able to get a ton of volume in my hair! It did not create a modern curl shape as it was more of a curled up from the ends curl. It brushed out nicely and left me with what felt like a soft, bouncy blowout.
If you are looking for a tool to create undone, loose waves, this may not be the right tool for you. It can probably be done, but you’ll have to fish out the ends of your hair from the barrel after the air has wrapped them up to keep them from becoming curled.
If you love your Dyson or are looking for a speedy blowdryer with some functional attachments, I think you may really like this tool! It costs a pretty penny but it certainly delivers great results.
If you need a budget option, the Revlon One Step tool is pretty dang good as well. It does not offer the curling barrels but it is a blowdryer within a round brush for creating a smooth blow out. My main complaint with it was that it was LOUD and very, very hot. The Dyson Airwrap tool is extremely quiet and the temperature did not feel like it was burning my hair.
So for me, it was fun to use and I’m planning on using it again with wet hair to create curls from damp hair, but it’s not going to replace any of my other tools.
Have you tried it? What do you think?!
