Four hundred dollars is a hefty price tag for a new hair dryer, but shoppers swear by the Dyson Supersonic. This futuristic, lightweight blow dryer has been making waves since its launch in 2016. It's so popular that it sometimes sells out.

The quiet, quick-drying Dyson Supersonic hair dryer promises to be less damaging to your locks. It measures its air temperature more than 40 times a second to regulate its heat. It also claims to "increase smoothness by 75%, increase shine by up to 132% and decrease frizz and flyaways by up to 61%."
To understand what makes this appliance a game changer, you should read its reviews. "This hair dryer is so superior in so many ways. First, the outer casing never heats up. The lint filter is in the handle and can be cleaned daily with ease. The dryer has three heat settings and three blower settings that can be mixed and matched," says one Ulta reviewer with thick, curly hair, noting it blow-dries in half the time.
"It's weighted appropriately so it relieves hand and arm fatigue. Lastly, it works so well on curly hair. It's been a game changer for me," the reviewer adds.
