Using the Dyson Corrale™ hair straightener
I have naturally curly and frizzy, quite thick hair, so I always believed I needed the highest temperature straighteners in order to achieve that silky smooth straightened style. However, this straightener allowed me to straighten my hair at a much lower temperature, so it is great if you’re keen to reduce the temperature you expose your hair to. It was however rather tempting to up the temperature to the highest setting to achieve the look in less time with ease.
It works using flexing manganese copper alloy plates, which shape around your hair to make sure your hair doesn’t fall out when you’re styling it, which is great if you have a lot of hair.
It was nice to have the option to go wireless, but as someone who is lucky to have plenty of plugs around the house, I found that I didn’t necessarily need the wireless function when styling my hair.
The straighteners themselves heat up extremely quickly (although they do take their time to cool down so do keep away from pets and children even when they’ve been turned off).
There’s also no denying how beautiful these straighteners look. They’re without a doubt the most beautiful hair styling tool I've ever seen, and they feel just as good as they look. So if having a nice looking dressing table where you can leave your straighteners out on full display is important to you, then these are a perfect option.
What are the pros?
- Lower heat needed to style hair
- Looks lovely on your dressing table
- Has a lovely feel to the product
- Comes complete with tools and a case
- Option to use wireless
What are the cons?
- Very heavy compared to other irons
- Quite pricey
- Difficult to handle and turn when curling because of the weight
- Have to remember to charge it up if wanting to use wireless
- Difficult to use plugged in as the wire easily comes out
I understand that in order to have the powerful wireless function, these straighteners have to have a larger battery, which I’m assuming is why they’re quite heavy. While this is perfectly fine at first, they’re quite difficult to hold after a bit, and the weight makes it very hard to twist and turn them when attempting to curl the hair. Therefore I would prefer it to be lighter, especially if I struggled with joint pain or arthritis.
Is it worth the money?
I’ve used my trusty pair of GHD hair straighteners to style my hair for as long as I can remember. From full curls to poker straight locks, I find my GHD’s lightweight, easy to use and reliable every time.
Personally, I find myself reaching for the GHD’s over the Dyson Corrale everytime. I’m not sure whether it’s because the GHD’s are lighter and I find them easy to hold for long periods, or if I find they can curl the hair just as easy as they can straighten and curl the hair with ease. They're also quite a bit cheaper than the Dyson Corrale (£85 compared to £399.99).
Would you recommend this product?
If you’re limited when it comes to plugs or you work in a salon where you’d prefer to go wire free then I can totally see why this product would be more suited to you than other straighteners.
However, if you’re just wanting a pair of straighteners for at home use on special occasions or to tame the frizz on a daily basis, I wouldn’t recommend these straighteners as they’re very expensive compared to others on the market which perform just as well.
