Can the Dyson Airwrap Replace Your Hair Dryer?

Having a Dyson Airwrap is like having a beauty salon in the palm of your hand. Whether you’re looking for straight hair or wavy curls, it’s got you covered. You may wonder whether it’s worth keeping around your old hair straightener or blowdryer.

The Dyson Airwrap can replace your hairdryer. It uses a special attachment that dries and styles your hair in under 20 minutes.

For the best possible results, however, you should first dry your hair off with a towel. Your Airwrap might not work as expected on sopping wet hair. Continue reading to learn more about your Dyson Airwrap.

Can a Dyson Airwrap Replace a Hair Dryer?

Imagine standing at the bathroom sink, staring at your hair straightener, blow dryer, and other styling accessories. After purchasing the Dyson Airwrap, you might wonder whether you can get rid of these things.

You totally can replace your hairdryer with the Airwrap since the device is an all-in-one styling pool.

You can also get rid of your:

  • Hair curlers or rollers
  • Curling iron
  • Flat iron
  • Chemical hair products

For the ideal look, all you need is a comb suited for your hair type and your Dyson Airwrap.

How to Use the Dyson Airwrap to Dry Hair

If you want to use your Dyson Airwrap as a hairdryer, follow these instructions:

  1. Dry your hair with a towel, so it’s damp, but not soaking wet.
  2. Use the 1.2-inch or 1.6-inch barrel, depending on how big you want your curls.
  3. Use the high heat setting.
  4. Let the device wrap your hair around the barrel for 15 seconds (or until your hair gets dry).
  5. Spray the curls with a cold water spray to “set” them.
  6. Turn the Dyson Airwrap off.

What Setting on the Dyson Airwrap Works Best for Drying Wet Hair?

Honestly, the best setting for your Dyson Airwrap when drying hair truly depends on your desired style and hair type. It also depends on your hair’s level of moisture. Consider the following:

  • If you just got out of the shower, you should use a high temperature. The heat will dry your hair sooner and mold it into your desired look.
  • If you’re looking for a fast touch-up, use the low heat setting. There is no need to use the high-temperature setting on hair that doesn’t need drying.

Feel free to experiment with different temperatures, attachments, and settings! Again, having a Dyson Airwrap is like going to the beauty salon without leaving your home. Your hairstyling options are limitless.

What if My Dyson Airwrap Won’t Dry My Hair?

If the air around your Dyson Airwrap doesn’t heat up, and you’ve played with the settings, it will not dry your hair. It’s possible you’ll need to follow these troubleshooting steps:

  • Clean the device’s filter. Your device has a “cage” just above the power cord. This cage catches excess hair. If there’s too much hair in the filter, then your product won’t work as expected. You can learn more about cleaning the filter here
  • Try a different outlet. If your Dyson Airwrap isn’t getting enough energy, it won’t utilize certain features, such as reaching the desired temperature.
  • File a warranty claim. If you purchased a Dyson Airwrap and it stopped working within two years of ownership, you can file a warranty claim to have the device replaced or repaired. You can learn more about filing a warranty claim on Dyson’s website.
  • Try a different barrel. Your Dyson Airwrap comes with eight different attachments. While the air around the device should get hot, it might not work as expected if you’re not using the right barrel for your desired style.

Again, before using your styling tool, dry your hair first. Your Dyson Airwrap might be working fine, but it may take longer than expected to style your hair if it’s wet.

A Final Word

Your Dyson Airwrap does more than replace your hairdryer. It saves you time, frustration, and money. For the best possible results, dry your hair off with a towel before using it. Otherwise, it could take longer than the standard 15 minutes to style your hair.
