It does offer you an concept of what the system has been designed to do although – straighten your hair from moist to dry with air somewhat than sizzling plates. Dyson first launched into haircare in 2016 with its hairdryer and proper from the beginning, it has paid specific consideration to the harm warmth could cause to hair and tried to minimise this utilizing varied sensors and engineering to manage and cut back warmth.
The Airstrait follows the identical rules, with Dyson claiming it may possibly straighten your hair from moist to dry with none warmth harm. The system – which can compete with GHD’s not too long ago launched Duet Model – has been engineered for quite a lot of hair varieties and it goals to “obtain a pure straight type, with physique and motion, while sustaining the energy”.

Relatively than sizzling air from a hairdryer after which excessive warmth from ceramic plates, the Airstrait comprises the hair tress between two arms, every of which have a 1.5mm aperture alongside them to create a 45-degree angled blade of high-velocity air. These blades come collectively with a view to type one jet of air that creates the downward power into the hair to dry it and straighten it on the identical time.
So as to change the type of your hair – and maintain it, the hydrogen bonds inside every strand need to be damaged and reset.

The bonds are reset when dry and straight, thus holding that type. It is the identical motive the Airwrap has a chilly burst button, as in the event you change a mode utilizing warmth to interrupt the bonds, the bonds need to be chilly with a view to set.
Dyson Airstrait options
The Dyson Airstrait is powered by the corporate’s Hyperdymium motor, which is similar motor you will see within the Airwrap and Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and it sits inside the deal with.

This generates as much as 3.5kPa of air strain, which is claimed to be sufficient to straighten hair because it dries – and it does, we have tried it.
Just like the Supersonic hairdryer, Airwrap and Corrale hair straightener, the Airstrait has clever warmth management.

Dry mode has two warmth settings of 120-degrees celsius (250-degrees fahrenheit) or 140-degrees celsius (285-degrees fahrenheit). There’s additionally a Enhance operate within the Dry mode for a high up.

It additionally delivers totally different air circulation relying on whether or not you’ve got it open or closed. When open, there is a low air circulation, while whenever you clap the arms collectively, you will get the excessive circulation. Final however not least on the function entrance, the Airstrait will clear itself earlier than you begin to eliminate any residue from hair serums or oils you might have used, although it’s also possible to take away the perimeters simply if you wish to do a wipe your self.

I’ve lengthy maintained that the Dyson Airwrap is among the greatest merchandise I’ve examined – it has at all times finished wonders on my hair, and I’m fairly obsessive about the Flyaway attachment for the Supersonic hairdryer too. The Airstrait actually stunned me although.

Once I straighten it with straightening irons, it nonetheless carries loads of weight. It is heavy and dense. After the Airstrait although, it had quantity however it was light-weight.
