Introducing the precision hair dryer – the Dyson Supersonic r™ Professional hair dryer.
For professional styling. Smaller. Lighter. Fast drying. With no heat damage. Available exclusively to professional stylists.09 February 2024
Streamlined flow heater for even heat
Dyson’s proprietary new heater technology is small, light and incredibly power dense. Conventional heaters use open wire wrapped around mica boards, commonly used in electronics, which result in hot and cold spots in the airflow. Dyson hair scientists have researched in detail how to prevent heat damage to maintain hair health. With sights set on engineering tools that not only create great style but help keep hair healthy too.
Dyson’s streamlined flow heater technology is the first Dyson curved heater in a hair dryer, made of symmetrical foils which form a suspended track. This track delivers efficiency, through maximum exposure to the airflow, with minimum impact on the flow rate and performance. This high-pressure air through the unique curve heats the airflow more evenly, with no hotspots. This means that the user experiences increased evenness of temperature even when using attachments, a higher temperature for styling, and drying hair fast, with no heat damage
Achieving the optimum heater performance whilst balancing weight and bulk was central to the development of the Dyson Supersonic r™ hair dryer. Due to the new shape dictating the design, engineers were tasked to re-engineer Dyson’s heater technology to reduce size yet increase performance that provides stylists with a lighter, more agile tool to combat common complaints within the stylist community – achy arms, dull hair and extreme heat damage. The result is a heater that is small and power dense, made from twenty-eight 99.9% copper microfins that transfer heat evenly into the airflow for increased precision when styling and greater hair shine.
Optimised RFID attachment
The Dyson Supersonic r™ professional hair dryer also features integrated Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) sensors in each attachment, which communicate with the hair dryer, automatically adjusting the motor and the heater to deliver optimal airflow and temperature. This functionality provides intuitive adjustment of the tool to suit all hair types and styles. For example, the diffuser is set to low flow and low temperature to reduce frizz and enhance curls without disrupting the curl pattern. While the rough dry mode uses max power heat and flow to minimise drying time while maintaining controlled airflow.
