If you have ever used Dyson for your hair, you will know that the British technology brand gets it right quite often — what with the powerful Supersonic Hairdryer and impressive Airwrap before it. Well, they’ve gone and done it again; this time with a hair straightener. The Dyson Corrale is their third and newest hair styling tool released and it’s already creating waves by being the world’s first hair straightener to use flexing plate technology. What this translates to is smooth, straight hair and a glossy finish with less heat, which in the long term, means less damage on your beautiful locks. Oh and did we mention it’s cord-free too?
A Cut Above the Rest
Dyson claims that a conventional flat plate straightener can only apply heat and tension to the thickest parts of your hair, which leads to neglected flyaway locks. Excessive application can also result in hair damage. Where the Dyson Corrale steps up to the plate is its unique technology that took seven years to create. Flexing plates adapt to the hair’s shape, moulding to contours and preventing strands from straying. Ultimately, the user is given better control over styling results and straightening the hair is less reliant on heat.
As with Dyson’s existing hot tools, the Corrale has advanced heat control. A platinum sensor measures temperature at 100 times per second, so that the heating system is kept in check to maintain consistent, precise and accurate heat. Pick from three heat settings: 165 degrees, 185 degrees, and 210 degrees. These lower heat settings, coupled with the powerful adaptable plates, enable you to style your hair at lower temperatures.
And perhaps the handiest trait of all: The straightener is cord-free. It shares the same four-cell lithium-ion battery technology as its reputable vacuum cleaners, so you can style your hair anywhere, anytime. Impressively, it even has a flight mode feature so you’re free to take it out as you jet from one country to another. It also boasts up to 3o minutes of battery life, and fully recharges in 70 minutes.
The Dyson Corrale will launch in Hong Kong May 2020. No news on a confirmed retail price just yet, but it is likely to be priced around the US$499 mark.
