For those of you who use hair straighteners on a regular basis, listen up, because this new tool from Dyson is a game-changer.
The Dyson Corrale is the first straightener of its kind to use flexing plate technology, which means that the straightener bends with you hair to ensure an evenly distributed heat through the hair. Unlike other straighteners that often require you to go over the hair section a couple of times, leaving you with flyaways, the Dyson Corrale will straighten the whole section of hair in one go, applying even heat and hair tension in every strand of hair, due to the flexing plates that shape and gather the hair.
James Dyson, Founder and lead engineer, explains more about the technology, “Since we first started developing the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, 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.
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. We simply do not need the heat that others apply. We engineered unique flexing plates of magnesium copper, wire 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.”
This tool is suitable for all hair types and also features Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control for precise temperatures 165 degrees, 185 degrees and 210 degrees. Together with 4-cell lithium-ion battery technology, this ultimate styling tool is cord-free, allowing you to style your hair anywhere and at any time without the annoyance of being limited by a cord plugged into a power point.
The Dyson Corrale comes with its own charging dock and a heat protectant cover, to make it easy to transport and comes in colours nickel/fuchsia and purple/black. Available at selected retailers nationwide now.
