5 tips for using your new Flyaway attachment

1. The flyaway attachment is a tool for finishing straighter styles. It should be used only on dry and straight, or straightened hair.

2. We recommend starting with lowest heat setting (28°C cold setting) with high speed setting. Adjust the temperature if need be: lower temperatures for finer hair, and higher heat for thicker hair types.

3. Hold it at the top of your head until your hair is attracted to it. Then slowly run it along the length of your hair without pressing down on it.

4. To style the back, rotate the attachment 45 degrees and slowly run it down the back of your head. Use the cool edges to attach, rotate or remove the attachment.

5. The Flyaway attachment can also be used to create flicks at the ends of your hair, if desired. If not, avoid running the attachment to the ends of your hair, or go over the ends using the 28°C cold setting (cold shot).

Looking after your hair dryer

You can maintain powerful airflow, and keep your hair dryer performing at its best, by cleaning the filter regularly. We recommend cleaning once a month, or when the three white LEDs flash continuously.

How to clean your filter

Unplug your machine from the mains electricity supply and allow to cool down before cleaning your filter.
Step 1 Hold the handle of your machine firmly and gently rotate the filter cage anti-clockwise.
Step 2 Pull down and away from the machine. Use a lint-free cloth or soft brush to remove any hair product residue or debris from both the filter cage and the filter mesh.
Step 3 Do not use water to clean the filter mesh, and try not to apply too much pressure when cleaning.
Step 4 Move the filter cage back into position until correctly aligned, and rotate clockwise to lock before use.

    To maintain optimum performance, your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer needs regular care and maintenance.

  • What precautions should I take while removing or rotating the attachment?

    The attachment can get hot if you’ve been using it for a while. We recommend holding the cool edges when twisting or removing it.

  • What speed and heat settings should I select when using the Flyaway attachment?

  • As a professional stylist, can I purchase the consumer Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer to use in my salon?

    In salon environments, filters can clog more quickly with hair product residue, so it’s best to purchase a Dyson Supersonic™ professional hair dryer, which has a filter that's specially designed to meet the demands of a busy salon. The warranty on the consumer model doesn’t cover use in commercial environments, or if it’s used for more than two hours a day.

  • What is the voltage of the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer?

    The voltage is 220–240V in the Philippines.

  • Can I use my hair dryer when travelling to countries with different electrical voltages?

    Your hair dryer has been precisely engineered for fast drying and styling at the voltage of the country in which it was purchased. This allows it to run at optimum performance. As voltage varies from country to country, please follow the guidance on usage in the guarantee section of your user manual.
