Dyson’s new hair dryer has smart features that will only get smarter the more you use it. Equipped with five upgraded attachments, the Supersonic Nural can automatically identify the attachment and adapt the dryer settings based on your own preferences.

Over time the hair dryer remembers both airflow and temperature preferences based on the attachment. The aim is to speed up the drying and styling process while allowing less heat to potentially damage the hair. Attachments include the Flyaway attachment, the Gentle Air attachment for even diffusing, a flat head Styling concentrator, a Wave+Curl diffuser, and a Wide-tooth comb.

Scalp comfort is also at the forefront of the new Dyson Supersonic, with the heat capping out at 55 degrees celsius at its closest point. According to Dyson this is the optimum temperature for both scalp comfort and drying speed- notably this is a whole 100 degrees cooler than the AirWrap’s shut-off temperature.

With “Scalp Protect Mode” enabled, the dryer automatically changes the temperature depending on how far away from your head it is. The closer it is, the less heat will be applied. Distance is determined by an infrared beam, and ‘time of flight’ sensor measuring how far away from your head the tool is. A traffic-light style LED indicator is used within the dryer capsule to signal the automatic heat setting; red for high heat, orange for medium, and blue or yellow for low heat.

It also boasts a ‘pause’ feature which automatically sets the device to an ambient mode when you put it down. This works similarly to auto-pause on AirPods- when the motion sensor is triggered the heating element cools, and the airflow slows in turn minimising noise- just ignore the heating element part for earbuds.

The Dyson Supersonic Nural will be available in Australia from April 8, for Dyson Owners, and April 11 in-store. It will retail for $749.
