LOOK: This award-winning hair tool revolutionizes the way to dry and straighten hair

The new Dyson Airstrait uses a powerful jet of air instead of heated plates

Heat has always been associated with hairstyling. Whether hair dryers, curling rods, flat irons, or heated combs, these tools use heat to give the hair the desired effect. Despite their efficacy, these tools often inflict damage on the hair due to excessive heat. The end result may look perfect, but when not styled, hair is left dry, or sometimes even brittle.

Last year, an innovation in the hair industry was introduced. Dyson unveiled the Airstrait, which basically does two jobs in one go: it dries the hair while straightening it without using heated plates, and now, it’s here in the Philippines!

This new technology, which has already been awarded by Time Magazine as one of the “Best Inventions of 2023,” boasts Dyson’s Hyperdymium motor, which generates up to 3500 kilopascals of air pressure. Along the arms of the tool are openings which create two high-velocity downward blades of air that meet to form one focused jet of air, creating a force to straighten hair as it dries.

“Having a strong understanding of how to manipulate and realize the potential of powerful airflow is fundamental to the performance of the Dyson Airstrait straightener,” said James Dyson, founder and chief engineer of the brand. “This expertise, which we’ve gained over the last 25 years, is what has enabled us to deliver our first wet to dry straightener, with no hot plates, and no heat damage. Delivering the ease-of- use that people love about straighteners but with high-velocity air blades, saves time, maintains hair strength and achieves an everyday natural straight untreated hair style.”

A lot of people with medium to long hair would benefit from this tool, especially if they want to lessen their hairstyling time, but surprisingly, guys with straight, short hair can also use the Airstrait to give volume and get that K-pop hairstyle that has been trending as of late.

As per celebrity hairstylist Renz Pangilinan, who did a demo during the launch, it’s best to work with damp hair when using the tool as it is easier to reset the direction of the hair this way. He used the tool as a hair dryer first to lift the roots and create a partition. After which, he went on using the tool on the hair in sections, bending midway to give that soft curl. He also used the cool-shot method which uses cool air from the tool to make the hair hold the style better. This method allows users to forgo traditional hair dryers and flat irons, which typically rely on high heat levels, resulting in less damage and shorter preparation time.
