Believe it or not, back in the day, whenever I have theatrical shows and events, I used to style my hair using a hair iron. Needless to say, I had to endure scalp burns from countless passes and of course ultra mane damage whenever I need to style it for a specific occasion. Since then I stopped using hair iron when I noticed that my hair strands got so brittle and easily tangled.
Fast forward today, I came across this newest top of the line product from Dyson which enables to straighten and style the hair using a flexing plate technology that delivers enhanced look with less reliance on heat. Folks, behold, meet the new Dyson Corrale.
Unlike the conventional hair iron in the market that smashes the hair with its hot straight plate, The Dyson Corrale features pioneering micro hinged plate technology, which flexes to shape and gather hair, applying even heat and tension to all the hair strands in every pass and keeping them perfectly aligned, reducing the reliance on heat.
With seven years in development, the Dyson Corrale takes pride in the quality of its parts starting with nickel-coated plates and smooth titanium nitride, which is commonly found on medical scalpels for sharpness retention and costume jewelry for a great finish.
Chief Engineer and Founder, James Dyson said in an interview that they are staying true to their vision of bringing ease, comfort, and protection to the community through the products that they develop. He also added that in creating Dyson Corrale, they have successfully identified the pain points of most people who use hair iron and answers it by developing a product that will answer the problem, “We discovered that if the plates could conform to the precise profile of the tress, then with each pass we could apply the correct tension to all the hair strands. This means that we get an enhanced style and without excessive heat damage,” says Dyson. “We simply do not need the heat that others apply. We engineered unique flexing plates of magnesium copper, wired eroded to a precise accuracy of 65 microns to adapt to the shape of the hair tress. The copper plates wrap around the tress, applying even heat and tension to all the hair strands, keeping them aligned. The Dyson CorraleTM straightener elevates styling results, while dramatically reducing the heat damage on hair.” he ended.
What makes it different from other hair iron in the market? Allow me to dissect this beauty that is Dyson Corrale, for better enjoyment and appreciation.
What makes it different from others?
The Dyson Corrale straightener has been engineered to provide outstanding styling, ensuring hair is better protected and maintains a smooth and glossy finish.
The product is suitable for all hair types and this unique styling tool 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.
Dyson has developed a complex manganese copper alloy plate, featuring a carefully balanced amalgamation of six metals to provide the optimum flexibility, strength, and thermal conduction. Each plate is precision machined to 65 microns – the width of a human hair – and tourmaline edged to produce ionizing properties that help reduce static.
Unlike traditional straighteners, the unique flexing plates of the Dyson Corrale straightener mold to shape and gather the hair, giving the user greater control and therefore elevating the styling results, whilst 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. Plus, the titanium simply eliminates friction, so the Corrale glides along with the hair as smoothly.
The superb heat control
The Dyson Corrale has three precise heat settings that you can choose from. 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.
Just like its product predecessors, the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer and the Dyson Airwrap styler, the Dyson Corrale 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.
Lessened hair damage
This is a piece of common knowledge that one of the reasons why a person’s hair gets easily damaged is because of the hair products they put to it, and of course the heat they apply. Sun damage is inevitable though, but with Dyson’s new hair straightener, hair damage is lessened up to 50% as compared to the regular hair iron in the market.
The battery life
Gone are the days that you need to find a plug for you to use your hair iron, and what I’m truly amazed is that Dyson Corrale is powered by a four-cell lithium-ion battery, which means the straightener delivers the same thermal performance of a corded product with the cord-free versatility (Yes! Cord-free) and universal voltage allowing users to style anywhere, anytime.
It also fully recharges in just 70 minutes and provides up to 30 minutes1, cord-free styling wherever you are. Placing the straightener into the ergonomic charging dock at regular intervals while styling or attaching the magnetic 360° charging cable provides a hybrid charge mode for longer styling sessions.
The Heat-resistant pouch
The Dyson Corrale straightener comes with a heat-resistant travel pouch to store your straightener when it’s in your bag. However, it is recommended to always allow the straightener to cool before storing it in the pouch. A Safety lock also secures the plates for storage after use.
The Dyson Corrale straightener is available in two colorways. Opt for something classy with the Purple and Black, or be dainty with Iron and Fuchsia combination. Either way, they both look good and hair arsenal Instagram0-worthy.
The Flight mode feature is a plus
You read that right. The Dyson Coralle has its flight mode feature also ensures the device meets air travel standards and can be packed in cabin luggage for travel. How about that?
Where is it available?
The Dyson Corrale is available in the following stores:
Purple/Black: Exclusively available on direct Dyson channels, and the Dyson Demo Stores at Greenbelt 5, The Podium, SM Aura Premier, SM Mall of Asia
Is it worth investing in?
No bias at all, but this recent product development from Dyson Hair is truly an investment. With top of the line features and developmental technology that not only beautifies your hair but also lessens the damage, its tag price of Php 29, 500 is worth it.
After all, who says innovation would be cheap, right?
