It’s funny the things you learn about yourself once you become a parent. For instance, I never knew how much of the bathroom I could clean in the time it takes a toddler to go potty. Or how many shapes a sandwich could be delivered to the table in. Stars. Triangles. Penguins. When I was a kid they only came in a square shape. But, no, things have definitely evolved in the world of making sandwiches.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Even more so, technology has brought about a world of changes in all aspects of our life—from parenting to every day tasks. Combine the fact that I have 4 daughters with advances in tech, and you can easily see how the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer has been a game-changer in our household. Keep in mind that our daughters all keep their hair longer than mine and love to style their hair. Game.changer.
First off, my hair retains water like it doesn’t know when it will be able to drink it again. I can shower before bed, sleep through the night, and still have damp hair after lunch the next day. No joke. The main reason I dislike taking showers is because of the fact that my hair takes forever and a day to dry. When I have no plans of leaving the house —or it’s nice and warm outside— this is no big deal. But, if I want my hair to look presentable when I do need to be seen by others, well, that requires drying it.
This means standing in the bathroom for about 20-30 minutes holding a hair dryer. Can I tell you that after about 5 minutes, I am already bored and my arm is ready to fall off. Yet, I have just begun. Drying my hair had become the bane of my existence. Yes, perhaps dramatic, but the truth nonetheless.
Now? Now comes the game-changer. The “piece de resistance” for those of us who have spent countless hours of our life blow drying our hair. The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. The Dyson brand is synonymous with getting things done quickly and efficiently, and this hair dryer is no different. With a unique digital motor for fast and balanced drying, in addition to an intelligent thermistor to help protect hair from extreme heat damage, it brings drying your hair to a whole new level.
Not to mention, it comes with three magnetic styling attachments that allow you to adjust quickly and easily as you dry your hair:
- Dyson smoothing nozzle — Dries hair gently using smooth, wide air, allowing you to dry and style at the same time.
- Dyson styling concentrator — High-velocity, focused air that lets you style one section at a time – without worrying about disturbing the rest.
- Dyson diffuser — Engineered to disperse air evenly around each of your ringlets. Simulates natural drying to help reduce frizz and improve definition.
Oh, and with a house full of kids, in addition to my auditory sensory issues, one of my favorite features of the Dyson Supersonic is simply how quiet it is. Even with a powerful motor, it is tuned to produce one inaudible frequency and is enveloped by a vibration reduction system. It’s often the little things that make the biggest difference (another thing I learned about myself through this parenting journey).
With almost 22 years as a parent under my belt, it’s still a constant learning process. Both in how to nurture and raise these kids of mine, as well as constantly learning more about myself. Most recently I learned that self-care, even with something as simple as cutting down my stressful hair drying time, is essential to being a better parent.
So I say go ahead and splurge on yourself every once in a while and grab this $400 must-have beauty accessory at Best Buy.
