The new Dyson Airstrait straightens hair from wet to dry with powerful focused airflow.

Dyson is launching the Dyson Airstrait, its latest hair straightener powered by the Hyperdymium motor, on 29 February 2024 at S$799. It’s not the traditional straightener with hot plates. Instead, the Dyson Airstrait uses powerful, focused airflow to straighten hair from wet to dry.

It is engineered for multiple hair types. Achieve a natural straight style, with volume and movement, whilst maintaining the strength, healthy look and feel of your hair. The 45°-angled high-pressuring blade in the two arms forces air downwards into the hair through two 1.5mm apertures, drying and straight styling in one go, reducing time spent by 25%. Airflow styling on wet hair helps preserve hair strength, resulting in up to 60% less damage and colour fade than hot plate straighteners.

Hydrogen bonds with each hair strand is weakened when wet. Styling with powerful airflow from wet, results in less need for high heat, creating less damage and break. Styling with air allows for the creation of straight styles whilst maintaining volume and movement. Once hair is dry and aligned, the bonds are reset in different ways, locking the new style in place. Using lower temperatures resets the hair’s bonds from wet, protecting its internal structure.

The Hyperdymium motor features a 13-blade impeller which spins up to 106,000rpm, propelling over 11.9 litres of air through the machine per second. This generates up to 3.5kPa of air pressure, enough to straighten hair as it dries. At 27mm, the motor is small enough to fit in the handle.

Glass bead thermistors measure the airflow temperature up to 16 times per second to prevent heat damage and protect hair’s natural shine.

The Dyson Airstrait straightener has ‘Wet’ and ‘Dry’ styling mode and a ‘Cool’ mode to set the style. The ‘Wet’ and ‘Dry’ modes are pre-set with the specific heat and airflow combination for the best results. In ‘Wet’ mode, choose among three heat settings of 80°C, 110°C, and 140°C. In ‘Dry’ mode, choose between 120°C or 140°C or a top up “boost”.
