Isn’t it annoying when you need to go for a holiday outing but your heavy luggage isn’t ready to squeeze in your much-needed hair-dryer? This supersonic comes to the rescue of all those beauty queens who miss out on doing their hair on vacation trips. The Dyson digital motor V9 makes this gadget the fastest dryer motors of all times. Unlike the regular ones, the motor runs in the handle which gives more space in the head for Air MultiplierTM. The air is sucked by the base and amplifies it by three times, hence, producing high pressure, yet a controlled jet of air.
The powerful air-flow does not necessarily mean it blows out hot air. Hence, lesser the heat, lesser the hair damage.

So this Christmas let your hair down the way you want, whenever and wherever you want. Be generous this time and gift yourself something that you know you aren’t going to regret.
