Claiming to be the ultimate solution to smooth stray strands without extreme heat, the attachment harnesses - what Dyson's researchers say is called - the Coanda effect, that, using air flow, attracts and lifts longer hairs to the front, while pushing flyaways through the tress and out of sight.
The piece looks like a roller that doesn't come all the way around, and can be attached to your Dyson dryer in the same way the standard accessories do.
"Traditionally, this skilled technique involves the stylist using a round brush to section and manage the hair, whilst directing airflow from the dryer to push the flyaways into the style and out of sight," explains Emma Sheldon, Dyson Hair Care Category Director. "We set out to find a way to innovate a way to mechanise this method for the everyday styler. The new Dyson Supersonic™ Flyaway attachment harnesses the phenomenon of Coanda to smooth flyaways out of sight, without exposing the hair to extreme heat damage."
The first thing I have to say, is that I love my Dyson hair dryer - sure, it is quite an investment, compared to other products on the market, but when you use it (even without the attachment) you will notice a difference. My hair dries quicker, and it provides a much smoother outcome that any regular dryer I've ever used.
On to the attachment: at first use I was slightly apprehensive. What you initially notice is that when placed on the hair your strand are almost sucked around the curve of the dryer - then, once you feel that happen, you are supposed to slowly take it down your strands.
For me, the most inpatient person on the planet, it took a few gos to get the hang of that motion and not rush my way through. I found the back a little tricky to do, so I'm going to need a bit of practice on that, but all-in-all it was pretty simple to use. (And no joke made me feel a little like a hairdresser).
As for the result? MY LORD. Shiny, smooth, and non-static. I came out and my husband honestly asked me if I had straightened my hair?! I will say, it wasn't able to tame those really short baby hairs right at the front of my head, but anything longer than, say, 5cm, was slicked down into non-existence.
5-stars for this mum. Now let's hope those baby hairs grow as fast as it feels like my baby is!
