Thinking about splurging £400 on the new Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener? You need to read this first.
First came the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer, then came the Airwrap— and now it’s all about the Corrale. But no matter which way you look at it, £399 is a LOT of money to drop on a hair straightener. So are they really worth it?
If you’re thinking of buying the Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener— keep reading for our honest opinion.
Ok so the first things to note— the Corrale is heavier and bulkier than your standard ghd stylers. I don’t think they’re heavy enough to give you the dreaded hairstyling arm ache but it’s something to note if you are a weakling.
Also, because the stylers are quite chunky, it takes a couple of uses to really get used to them. At first, I wasn’t sure whether they’d really be able to get into the root of your hair… but with a little practice, they do.
Dyson Corrale review: The claims vs the reality
So what justifies the Dyson Corrale being so damn expensive? Well, first things first— Dyson spent seven years developing them, investing £25million into research and development. So whilst they’re definitely a hefty purchase, you can be safe in the knowledge that Dyson’s first straighteners have gone through rigorous testing and research and are (arguably) the very best on the market.
What else? Dyson’s Corrale straighteners are made with a patented ‘flexing plate technology’ which basically means the plates move and mould around the hair. They work to evenly distributing tension, gathering the hair between the plates, which stops pieces falling out and splaying. Because of this, the idea is that you only have to glide them through the hair once (which I found to be 100% true), in turn causing 50% less damage to hair— plus time and effort.
They also have intelligent heat control technology (you can set your desired temperate) meaning they’re suitable for all hair types. They’re also easy to create curls with, if that’s what you’re into.
Another big plus is the fact that they’re cordless— meaning you can use them any time, any where. Which is pretty genius.
Sold? £400 is a lot of money, so it’s hard to objectively say whether or not they’re really worth it, as some people simply don’t have that to spend. But if you are considering it and can afford them, you won’t be disappointed.
