“Since we first started developing the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, we have continued to explore the science of style, seeking to understand what makes hair smooth, shiny and glossy, and what makes it dull, damaged, and lifeless. We have been worried about the style results and heat damage from flat plate straighteners. Flat hair irons apply tension and heat only on the thickest part of the hair tress, the strands at the edges are not clamped, leaving them slack, unheated and leaving flyaways. It requires multiple passes on the same section of hair tress to give an even look, by which time excess heat may have caused reduced strength and less gloss,” shares Dyson founder and chief engineer James Dyson.
Meet the newest and latest hairstyling tool—the Dyson Corrale straightener has been engineered to provide outstanding styling, ensuring hair is better protected and maintains a smooth and glossy finish. Dyson has been researching into the science of straightening for almost a decade, investing over £100m into hair laboratories across the globe and employing thousands of hair scientists, engineers and professionals. These expert teams have studied in detail everything from the structure of hair to airflow dynamics whilst understanding thermal, mechanical and chemical damages, and the subsequent effects on hair health.
Unlike traditional straighteners, the unique flexing plates of this straightener mould to shape and gather the hair, giving the user greater control and therefore elevating the styling results, while reducing the reliance on heat. As the plates adapt to the hair, they apply tension more evenly and stop strands splaying. This greater control allows outstanding styles to be created with less reliance on heat.
It also comes with three precise heat settings—165°C (330°F), 185°C (365°F) and 210°C (410°F). These temperatures allow the user to tailor the settings to suit their hair type and desired style. This adaptability, combined with the increased control provided by the flexing plates, allows users to style at lower temperatures without compromising on the results. Much like the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and the Dyson Airwrap styler, this new straightener features Intelligent Heat Control technology. Using a platinum sensor, the temperature is measured 100 times a second. This technology communicates with a microprocessor which in turn controls the heating system delivering precise, accurate heat.
Best news of all? It’s suitable for all hair types. This unique styling tool also features Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control for precise temperatures, together with 4-cell lithium-ion battery technology to deliver cord-free performance, allowing users to achieve outstanding style anywhere at any time. It fully recharges in just 70 minutes and provides up to 30 minutes, cord-free styling wherever you are. Placing the straightener into the ergonomic charging dock at regular intervals whilst styling or alternatively attaching the magnetic 360° charging cable provides a hybrid charge mode for longer styling sessions.
“The Dyson Corrale straightener elevates styling results, while dramatically reducing the heat damage on hair,” says Dyson, which makes this a great hairstyling tool to use as you experiment with hairstyles for your big day. Say goodbye to damaged locks, and say hi to new fun hairdos.
