Video of Lorraine Massey using a Dyson dryer

I was searching for curly videos and I stumbled on one of Lorraine Massey.  This is an appearance to help promote her new book.  But I was shocked at the dryer she is using.  Not a Deva Dryer, but a Dyson

It show up around the 30 second mark

    I think she's no longer a part of Deva Curl and she's starting a brand new company, so Deva is now her competitor.  When you think about it like that, it's no wonder she's not promoting Deva anymore.  It's kind of sad though.  The Devafuser was a radical new design for a diffuser.  It's too bad she can't use it anymore.

    I have a very inexpensive diffuser, it came with the hair dryer when I bought it from Target. Is there a big difference in diffuser styles? I have been thinking of replacing the dinosaur that I have.

    Funny you should ask, I saw this before I found the Lorraine Massey video:


    It is a review of 4 different diffusers (4 different diffuser styles)

    That was a great comparison @WavyKfromNJ, thank-you! The funny thing is this, the woman's hair, length, curl type, definition and hairstyle are exactly like mine. Just add a bunch of silver and we could be hair twins, lol.

    My choice would be the travel diffuser. I like that it collapses, making it easy to store.

    Glad I could help.  It was very lucky timing.  The woman in the video is FitKat, she is the woman behind Medusa Clipping.  I hardly ever use a dryer, but I want a Dyson.  I think the Dyson will have to wait until I win the Lottery.

    i have an  ionic dryer, a tourmaline, which is good. (mine is about 100 yrs old, give or take, LOL!) the ionic dryers dry more quickly and the hair has more body, less frizz.  

    i rarely use a dryer, but when i do, i prefer this type. 

    IF the search function is working you should be able to find a few threads about this type or dryer.

    @WavyKfromNJ -- thanks for the video, read the book and loved seeing the video!
    lorraine left devachan a few years ago (maybe like 2013?).  she is the one who came up with the deva cut, and is now calling it curl by curl cut.  she also founded devachan.   i am sure she might still use some of their products, but i believe she is coming out with some of her own very soon. not sure if it is for gray hair or curly hair, or both.

    Thanks @rbb ; One of the things that bug me about hair dryers is the noise.  The Dyson is supposedly quieter than the average dryer.  For now I am going to stick to air drying which is extremely quiet.

    I guess I am more surprised that she is using a Dyson as opposed to the thousands of other dryers

    The trademarks for Curly World look like there will be several products.  I am guessing they are universal for curly/straight/gray/dyed.  If they fit her philosophy anyone can use them.

    My husband got me the dyson dryer for my birthday because, apparently I spend a lot of time doing my hair. 😂 this sweet man saved up for it. 

    the diffuser is very very gentle and the cold shot works quickly. It is definitely not as loud as my other dryer. I have the deva diffuser, a standard diffuser and a hot sock. I really do prefer how gentle the diffuser is over the others. (But I imagine that could be achieved for much less.)

    I can’t wait to see what Lorraine’s new products will be!

    I have a collapsible travel diffuser.  I find it really difficult to use.  It might be ok if you just hold it close to your hair and hold still, but I like to scrunch my hair in the diffuser and hold it against my scalp.  Can't do it with this.  The slightest pressure causes it to collapse.  I'll keep it for traveling, because it packs so small, but I won't ever use it at home.

    No longer part of Deva Curl? I thought she was the creator? Did she sell it?
