We know what we want to find behind our guy's back this Valentine's Day – and it's definitely not flowers...

Hairdrying routine sucking up your entire morning? Lucky for you, a group of engineers got on it – and the result is a hairdryer that makes long, drawn-out sessions with bulky, hair-harming dryers a thing of the past.

The new  uses a fast but focused airflow, is easy to balance in your hand, is way quieter than others hairdryers (finally!) and intelligently controls the temperature to help protect your hair from heat damage. Here’s why you’ll want to take this gadget home…

Science Made It Seriously Cool

These guys are serious: Dyson invested a whopping R910 million in the development of this hairdryer – even creating a lab dedicated to investigating the science of hair. Yup, a group of engineers actually studied hair, understanding how it reacts to stresses, how to keep it healthy and how to style it. Then, for four years, they tested this product on different hair types. Like we said… serious.

No More Wrist Strain

The compact, super-light digital motor is small enough to fit into the handle rather than the head of the dryer – so balance isn’t an issue. Basically, no more feeling like you just walked away from a weightlifting sesh…


Hair Damage Just Isn’t An Option Anymore

We’re all familiar with hairdryers reaching extreme temps, especially when you’re holding it close to your head. The result: All sorts of damage. Think: Dry, brittle strands and ever-maddening frizz. This gizmo has intelligent heat control, so your hair isn’t exposed to excessive temps and retains its natural, healthy shine and texture.

It’s Fast – But Focused

Traditional hairdryers can sometimes have a weak airflow, so they’re painfully slow – groan. Others do have strong airflow, but then it’s not necessarily controlled. This one creates a balanced, focused jet of air, angled at 20 degrees for precise drying and styling. Bonus: You get to dry and style at the same time.

It’s So Quiet!

Don’t you just hate that whirring blast in your ear first thing in the a.m.? Well, high-five to a team of aero-acoustic engineers, who actually pushed one tone in this motor to a sound frequency beyond the audible range for humans – love! Plus: Because the motor is in the handle, surrounded by silencers, it’s way quieter than your average screaming dryer – without compromising on speed, obvs.

It’s Got All The Bells And Whistles

This baby also has four heat settings, three airflow settings and a cold shot too. The smoothing nozzle dries hair gently, while the diffuser disperses air evenly around each curl. It simulates natural drying, helping to reduce frizz and improve definition. Being magnetic, each nozzle is easy to attach and adjust. Plus: You’ve got to love that the attachments remain cool to the touch, eliminating the ouch factor.

Forget flowers – this is all we want for Valentine’s Day. And pretty much every day.
