I don’t have many issues with my hair—it dries straight, and is shiny-ish. But one thing I don’t love are the flyaways. I blame my postpartum baby hairs, possibly too much heat styling, and seasonal humidity, which has left me with excess frizz and flyaways springing out from the center part of my hair. So, I was extremely excited to test-drive the Dyson Flyaway attachment for the Supersonic hair dryer

After first laying eyes on the Flyaway attachment, I admit I was a little confused. The shape of the attachment resembles a hook, so I hoped there was no twisting or turning to achieve the smooth and sleek look promised. Thankfully, it didn’t, and the Flyaway attachment was very easy to use. Fool-proof, even. It’s important to add in here, this is a finishing tool—you use it on dry hair that has either been dried naturally or with the supersonic hair dryer. Simply pass the attachment over the length of your hair—from the root to the tip, and watch as it instantly smooths any strays, expertly lifting longer hairs to the front, while tucking flyaways through your tresses and out of sight.

If the Flyaway attachment for the Supersonic hair dryer sounds high-tech, it actually is. The attachment was developed by a team of engineers and harnesses the ‘coanda effect’—a phenomenon first engineered for styling for the Dyson Airwrap styler—which in this case works to smooth the hair.

I timed the entire process using the Flyaway attachment, and for my just-past-the-shoulder length hair, it took 1 minute and 27 seconds to use. Flyaways were tamed and hidden before my very eyes, and the resulting look was smooth and sleek. In my opinion, it’s the ideal tool for a do-it-yourself salon quality finish at home.
