We all know just how covetable Dyson’s hair technology can be. Given their success with the Dyson Supersonic™ hairdryer and the Dyson Airwrap™ hair styler (that’s worth every penny of their hefty price tag), it was only a matter of time until the tech giant revealed a new product to join the ranks of its Dyson Hair elite.
In line with their vision to re-engineer and improve everyday technology, Dyson has once again outdone themselves with their just-launched Dyson Corrale™ — the revolutionary cord-free hair straightener.
Dyson Corrale™ and its Pioneering Flexing Plate Technology
The Dyson Corrale™ is the only hair straightener that uses unique flexing plates that moulds to shape and gathers the hair, giving the user greater control over their styling results whilst reducing the reliance on heat.
To achieve this, Dyson had spent years of research to develop a complex manganese copper alloy plate which features a carefully balanced amalgamation of six metals to provide optimum flexibility, strength, and thermal conduction. Each plate is precision machined to the width of a human hair and tourmaline-edged to produce ionising properties that can help reduce static when in use.
Unlike traditional straighteners, the innovative plates adapt to the hair where tension is applied more evenly to prevent hair strands from splaying so that there will be little to no need for more heat on the same location.
No More Overheating for Beauty
The Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener has three precise heat settings – 165°C, 185°C, and 210°C. Each of these temperatures gives users the ability to tailor their desired settings to better suit their hair type and desired style.
Although you can find the temperature settings across all conventional hair straighteners, the real-time temperature that is being delivered from the plates can often fluctuate significantly, resulting in too much heat that can damage your hair. Thankfully, the Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener features the same Intelligent Heat Control technology that’s built into their other hair products which use a platinum sensor, that measures temperature 100 times a second and relays it back to a microprocessor that controls the heating system to deliver precise, accurate heat.
Completely Cord-Free with Flight Mode for Ease of Travel
Similar to the cordless vacuum cleaners, the Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener operates cord-free and is powered by a four-cell lithium-ion battery that delivers the same thermal performance of a corded product and universal voltage, which allows the straightener to be used anytime, anywhere. As a first for the Dyson Corrale™, a flight mode feature has been added to the device to ensure that it meets air travel standards when you bring it with you on a trip in your hand-carry.
The Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener can be ready for use with a fully-charged battery in just 70 minutes and provides up to 30 minutes of cord-free use. However, placing the straightener into the ergonomic charging dock (designed by James Dyson himself) at regular intervals, or attaching the magnetic 360-degree charging cable provides a hybrid charge mode that can potentially lengthen the duration of the cord-free mode.
First Impressions with the Dyson Corrale™
I was fortunate enough to get some hands-on experience with the Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener before its official launch and was pleasantly surprised with just how easy styling has become, even on my straight-but-frizzy hair. With the precise temperature selection, I was able to find a heat that was suitable for my hair type to prevent overheating, and the flexing plates definitely addressed my worry of possible static when the device ran through a section of my hair.
The best part about the straightener for me was how effective the Dyson Corrale™ was in retaining the style (for about 6 to 7 hours) after just one time of straightening — which surely beats the countless number of times that ordinary hair straighteners tend to require.
We will definitely be exploring more styles with the Dyson Corrale™ when it arrives, so do stay tuned for our full review!
The Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener will be available at major electronic stores, departmental stores, and at Dyson Demo stores. Pricing and availability to be announced at a later date. For more information, visit www.dyson.com.
