Dyson’s latest invention, the Corrale hair straightener, is setting new records with its impeccable upgrade from the traditional straightener!
We’re all familiar with the remarkable Supersonic and Airwrap hair tools from Dyson – both products breaking away from the traditional technology and paving a new way for future inventions. And now, the brand once again broke the technology barrier with its relentless approach to research, experimentation and testing to unveil its brand new Corrale hair straightener. The product sets a new era for flat iron tools as the first-ever straightener with a flexing plate technology that delivers an enhanced style with less reliance on heat.
If you’re wondering how much a traditional hair straightener can be upgraded, we’ve got the answer for you. For someone who has been styling her hair with a straightener for years, I’ve always envisioned an ideal creation that’d suit all my needs – less heat used, wireless and less damaging to the hair. And guess what? The Dyson Corrale delivers! The product features a pioneering microhinged plate technology which flexes to shape and gather hair. This allows the plate to apply even heat and tension to all the hair strands in every pass and keep them perfectly aligned, thus reducing the reliance on heat.
“Since we first started developing the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, we’ve continued to explore the science of style. We sought to understand what can make your hair smooth, shiny and glossy, and what will cause it to turn dull, get damaged and become lifeless. Flat hair irons apply tension and heat only on the thickest part of the hair, and usually do not clamp the strands at the edges. This requires multiple passes on the same section of hair to get an even look, by which time excess heat may have caused reduced strength and less gloss,” says James Dyson, founder and chief engineer of Dyson.
The Science of Styling
The Corrale is engineered to provide outstanding styling by ensuring hair is better protected and maintains a smooth and glossy finish, similar to its Supersonic and Airwrap predecessors. Of course, such innovation didn’t happen overnight as the team spent almost a decade researching into the science of hair straightening! The experts have studied in detail everything from hair structure to airflow dynamics while understanding thermal, mechanical and chemical damage.
To straighten the hair, a combination of heat, tension and control is required. If you’re wondering how heat styling damages our strands, this is why: heat is applied to break the hydrogen bonds in the hair, tension and compression are required to reshape those bonds, and control is needed to apply the heat and tension evenly. It’s no wonder why the effect of heat styling can be so detrimental!
So what makes the Dyson Corrale a worthy investment for your hair? Here are three reasons why this unique styling tool boasts a new technology your hair could greatly benefit from.
