Dyson recently introduced the Dyson Corrale hair straightener, which features flexing plate technology. The hair straightener uses patented flexing plates that shape to gather hair, delivering enhanced styling with half the damage, the company noted.
Dyson has developed a complex manganese copper alloy flexing plate, featuring a balanced amalgamation of six metals to provide the optimum flexibility, strength and thermal conduction. Each plate is precision machined to 65 microns, the width of a human hair, and tourmaline edged to produce ionizing properties that help reduce static.
Suitable for all hair types, the styling tool also features Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control for precise temperatures, together with 4-cell lithium-ion battery technology to deliver cord-free performance. The straightener fully recharges in just 70 minutes and provides up to 30 minutes cord-free styling. Placing the straightener into the ergonomic charging dock at regular intervals while styling or alternatively attaching the magnetic charging cable provides a hybrid charge mode for longer styling sessions.
“Since we first started developing the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, we have continued to explore the science of style, seeking to understand what makes hair smooth, shiny and glossy, and what makes it dull, damaged and lifeless. Flat hair irons apply tension and heat only on the thickest part of the hair tress, the strands at the edges are not clamped, leaving them slack, unheated and leaving flyaways. It requires multiple passes on the same section of hair tress to give an even look, by which time excess heat may have caused reduced strength and less gloss. We discovered that if the plates could conform to the precise profile of the tress, then with each pass we could apply the correct tension to all the hair strands. This means that we get enhanced styling and without excessive heat damage,” said James Dyson, founder and chief engineer, Dyson.
