Can you imagine only ever needing just one tool to do your hair? Neither could I.
Sometimes I just want a quick blowdry, other times I just want a clean and sleek look, and occasionally I want a loose curl if I have time. Enter: the Dyson Airwrap.
I was initially mesmerized by the tool because you don’t needÂ anything else. No brushes, curling irons – just you and the airwrap happily ever after. I have to admit early on that I’ve hesitated in posting the review because it’s sold out everywhere (and has been for a while), but in the event that they come back in stock I wanted you guys to have the scoop because I’ve been using it for a few months now to see if it’s worth the price.
I’ve seen countless bloggers share that they Dyson hair dryer is worth the money and even a few others who have shared that they’ve gotten refurbished (and less expensive) versions on eBay and they’re fantastic. I don’t blow dry my hair (or love my hair straight enough) to invest in just that, but this tool is totally different. You can do it all. Yes, it’s crazy expensive, but think about the cost of a curling iron + a really nice blow dryer + the amount of money you spend on haircuts in a year. It’s a lot! This will improve the quality of your hair because it’s gentler on your strands, and at least for me has improved the time I can go between haircuts (a la fewer split ends). The tool uses less heat than any of your hot tools and it also comes with a regular drying nozzle for the days when you just need a quick ole regular blow dry.
The most exciting use case that I’ve found for the Airwrap on a regular basis is how it helps really make your dry shampoo actually work. I have spent many days dry shampooing my dirty hair to find that it doesn’t totally set in or “feel clean” even if advertised that way. Now I’ll spray the roots in the crown area and just the round brush to run through it afterward, and it actually makes my hair feel like I had a clean blow dry that morning. In a time where it’s hard enough just to get out of bed and throw on 4 layers of clothes, I’ve found solace in looking and feeling like myself now that winter is in full force.
As someone who probably curls their hair more than most (I’ve always had a weird cowlick and don’t like to wear my hair straight often) I was most impressed with how easily it can curl you hair. It’s like a lazy girl’s dream come true. You truly just sit there and move it around your head and voila, you are left with bouncy and beautiful curls that last throughout the day. Like a true Texas girl, I obviously use hairspray to help the curl hold, but the amount of effort that you have to put in is truly miraculous for the result. The Airwrap comes with two curling barrels that pull in the in different directions, so you do have to switch halfway through, but it usually takes me about 5-minutes to do my full head and I have long, thick hair.
I will keep you guys posted if this comes back in stock at any of the stores – Sephora, Ulta, Dyson and Amazon are all sold out right now, but it’s bound to be coming back soon!
