I bought the Dyson hair dryer 3 months ago. I have used it about 6 times, the reason being that it blows to hard even on the lowest setting. It hurt my eyes, I have dry eyes, and caused them to swell due to the added irritation. I found it difficult to style my hair in sections as while doing so it was blowing out another section, drying it before it could be styled. Using the defused is okay as long as it is not around my face. I feel really let down by this product. I contacted Dyson but they were not interested in my disatisfaction with the product. So for me it was a huge investment based on trusting a Dyson product, I cannot use it so have wasted my money.
Excellent hair dryer from Dyson
Have tried for almost 2 years before writing this review. Love the science behind it, it does drys faster and better. An excellent air dryer, with the exceptional price, one would expect to include at least a stand or wall mount piece and that will be 5 stars.
Fantastic Hair Dryer
Bought this Dryer through a "special offer" purchase & very glad I did. I don't have thick hair but I have a lot of hair & this dryer has cut down the drying time by half & I already had a very good Italian made dryer which I had always been happy with. It has a really long cord , it is quiet & easy to handle. Excellent purchase !

Can't live without it
This was an impulse purchase, but unlike most, it came with no regrets. The power on this thing in phenomenal! It dries my hair so quickly without burning. I use the smaller of the three attachments, however they are all great!
The only minor downside is that it scratches quite easily.
This is another Dyson product that does no disappoint!

Bought the Pro version when Dyson had special offer in mid-2018
A gift for my wife and little daughter and they like it very much.
Pro version has longer power cord, also Nickel/Silver finish looks nice as well.
Feels dry hair faster, easy to clean the filter. High recommended!
Top notch hairdryer
Amazing hairdryer. Dries my hair faster than a normal hair dryer and with much less heat. My hair finishes smooth and soft from just drying alone. I have thin frizzy hair and I do not get this finish with a regular hair dryer.
Definitely worth the hefty price tag
Easier than ever
I got one as a Christmas/birthday present and it is amazing. It takes me about 3 mins to dry my mid length hair (halfway down my upper arm) leaves no frizz at all, styles it perfectly and leaves it super shiny. My hair feels so light after I use it and I've been complimented numerous times on how healthy my hair looks.
The only problem is that the whistling sound it has on the highest setting drives my dog crazy. She hates hair dryers generally but this one really upsets her.

Great Hairdryer. But very expensive.
I love the hairdryer. I have short fine hair and it really does dry it in 4 or 5 minutes. Less if I wait 5 minutes or so before I start drying it. Then I can do it under 3 minutes. But again my hair is short and fine. I also think my hair is looking healthier. I suspect that’s due to not having to dry it for 12 minutes or more every day. And I only use my Dyson on low heat. I used to have my Parlux on a hotter setting. I also don’t need to use my straightener every day anymore. My hair is not as dry now as it used to be. And it dries easier and straighter with the Dyson. Overall I do love it.
However, I have had this hairdryer since the 16th January this year and it’s taken me until now to write a review. The reason. I’m reluctant to say it’s worth $500.
I have arthritis and I find the dryer easy to hold and the fact my hair is drying so quickly means that I’m not suffering from painful arms and shoulders like I was with my previous hairdryer.
So as much as I do find many benefits with the Dyson which for me is great and as a hairdryer I’d recommend it, I’m grateful mine was a gift. I think still think $500 is a lot of money for a hairdryer. The price is the only reason I’ve given 4 stars instead of 5.
As a side note. I received a bonus bag with mine. Dyson sell it for $69. It’s poorly designed. Just closes with magnets and if you dropped it the contents would spill out everywhere. A handle embedded into it would greatly assist with carrying it and lessen the risk of dropping it.
Love it so much
This is my first time buying a that expensive hair dryer and i love it so much.
The hair dryer is less noisy than all the other ones when i try it out in the actual store! The hair dryer is light and easy to handle, it also dries your so quickly.
The heat will also not damage your hair!

Better for your hair
As a hairdresser I was keen to try out the dyson hairdryer but put off buying one until only 6 months ago. Well I wish I didn't wait so long, I absolutely love it. It's quieter, lighter, so much better for the condition of the hair as it doesn't get as hot as my usual dryers and still just as efficient at drying not to mention the attention it gets for its streamlined design. It's well worth the money and I'd definitely recommend.
Used it for almost a year
I have been using for almost a year and I can say I can't imagine using another hair dryer.
I have plenty of hair dryer from the past, and those with the long barrel and make you have the need to raise the dryer so far away from your hair is just tiring to use. This hair dryer solves that problem.
After long term use. I find that it doesn't make my hair brittle even with every day use. I am not sure the reason for it, but I have always used medium heat setting with max wind force in all my hair dryers.
Dyson's one just doesn't make my hair frizzy. I didn't notice so much difference at first until I took out my old hair dryer to compare. It is easy to get used to the better stuff and forget about how much better it really is. I was a bit shock at what my old hair dryer did to my hair. I look like a poodle the next day. It is much easier to attain a salon blow out look with dyson's.
I can see that most or all hair dryers in the past doesn't give me the effect compared to what Dyson did. I blow my hair dry at night before I sleep, in the morning it will not be that messy as compared to pass hair dryer. My hair generally needs less maintenance before going out. And I still don't understand where the magic is. Just sharing my experience here.
My husband who didnt really do much about his hair usually, start using hair dryer for his own hair to style it a little before going out. He finds it useful.
Because of the filter which not many hair dryers have. I know I am not bursting sprays of unseenable things in my hair. There is probably still some. But you got the security of knowing that it is greatly reduced.
The machine looks much cleaner. I have always notice stuck hair or lint in past hair dryers I have used. In unreachable places within the seenable area of the barrel. It is always going to be there and I can't possibly open up everything to clean inside. I probably cant put everything back in the right place. So having a easy to clean filter is rather important to me. No stuck hair, dust bunnies, lint etc in unreachable places. They are always on the outside and easily cleanable. It feels so much more hygienic. And with this, no random hair burnt smell due to stray hair touching heating device inside hair dryer.
Another bonus. Due to the design. You won't find your hair being sucked into any holes, get stuck, needing to sometimes cut off a chunk or spent time pulling out your hair off the hair dryers back.
I really have no complains in terms of design and functions even though I try hard to find one. The only complain is the price. But seeing how they seems to be quite meticulous in the process of making this product, the price seems justifiable, just not affordable.
The only way they could improve this hair dryer is probably to make it waterproof. But hey, waterproof hairdryer? Tsk.
