Dyson Corrale might have joined the family. After I loved the Dyson hair dryer so much (read my post on the dryer here) John was kind enough to get Corrale. I’ve been testing it out and have a lot of thoughts so keep reading to see if you should splash the cash.
“Flexing copper plates for half the damage – By gathering hair, flexing plates enable shiny, straight results with less heat. For 50% less breakage, less frizz and fewer flyaways”
“Intelligent heat control – Integrated sensor system regulates the temperature of the plates 100 times a second, ensuring constant power so heat never exceeds your chosen setting”
“4-cell lithium ion battery – Drawn from Dyson’s cord-free vacuum technology, it delivers the thermal performance of a corded straightener”

Corrale offers up to 30 minutes of cordless styling. Works effortlessly to create a range of styles. Minimises heat damage to the hair. Is travel friendly, with a small removable battery. Priced a £399. Comes with travel case, charging dock, power cord and brush and comb.
The ease at which it straightens is pretty impressive. You have to force your self not to go over each piece a few times because you really only need to straighten each section once. But my god we are all so used to going over a million times so its hard to kick that habit.
It is heavier than your average straightener but I don’t feel I notice this during use and it certainly doesn’t bother me in anyway.
Salon blow dried hair, you you know that glossy, smooth and perfected look. Yeah you do get that with it. I did often feel with my straighteners that it looked flat and straightened. I realise how that sounds but I just want to smooth the frizz and kinks, not iron it to my head.
For me the cordless charge time is a little low. Reasoning being I like to blow dry a large section and straighten, then the next and so on. So the 30 minutes for me is touch and go if it’s gonna last.
Curling your hair with Corrale is a breeze. Dyson do have a handy video on how to, if you’re like me who’s rubbish at that kinda thing you’ll have a lot of love for that kind of detail.
I love Corrale very much there is no getting away from that. My only niggle is the battery, it doesn’t last long enough for me and if it’s charge is very low it doesn’t seem to work plugged in, perhaps I’m doing something wrong. You seem to have to leave it to charge a bit before use. The average person would just leave its doc plugged in but I don’t have enough plug sockets so thats why I’m having a moan.
Would I recommend, 100% yes. I can compare it to the GHD Platinum Styler which would be a cheaper alternative. Not the original GHD’s they are rubbish. However, Corrale doesn’t give that snapped short fly away look that straighteners do. Although GHD platinum gives you that gorgeous glossy finish, they certainly damage your hair.
My hair is naturally curly and frizzy. I can continue to wear my hair straight whilst feeling confident I’m not damaging my hair. My hair has been through the mill and is finally back on track and that for me makes it worth it.
