Dyson Airstrait ditches hot plates to dry and straighten your hair simultaneously

The future of hair care?

Attention folks who chose to rock luscious long locks. If you are truly a haircare fiend, you have probably grown accustomed to the Dyson Airwrap styler or Corrale straighteners. It’s now time to expand your collection of Dyson devices and drop a cool $499.99 (41,000) on the new Dyson Airstrait.

Unlike the Corrale, which works its magic on dry hair, the Airstrait is all about going from wet to straight. But here's the twist - it doesn't use hot plates at all. Nope, no heat damage here. Instead, it blasts your locks with powerful airflow, promising a naturally straight style with a shiny finish. 

Now, let's get down to the mechanics. Picture two arms holding your precious strands while an angled blade of air shoots out from tiny holes, drying and straightening your hair. The airflow works its magic and straightens the hair. This is powered by a Dyson Hyperdymium motor that spins faster than a rollercoaster at 106,000rpm, propelling a whopping 12 litres of air per second. Hold on to your hats, folks, this is some serious wind power.

The Airstrait comes with Wet and Dry styling modes, each with its own temperature presets. In Wet mode, you've got options ranging from 80°C to 140°C. In Dry mode, choose between 120°C and 140°C.  And if you're in the mood for some airflow control, there are low and high-speed settings, a cold shot, and even a root drying mode. It's like having your own personal hair guru within this device.

Whether it lives up to the hype, well, we'll have to see if it passes the straightening test.Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait our turn since the Indian pricing and availability are yet to be revealed.
