New Arrival: Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener With Flexing Plate

The Dyson cord-free Corrale straightener uses patented Dyson flexing plates that shape to gather hair, styling faster and with less reliance on heat. Price & availability TBA.

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 provide cord-free usage anywhere.

Dyson boasts that the Corrale is the only hair straightener with flexing plates – featuring microhinged plate technology – which flex to shape and gather hair, applying even heat and tension to all the hair strands in every pass and keeping them aligned.

“We have been worried about the style results and heat damage from flat plate straighteners. 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,” shared James Dyson, Founder and Chief Engineer, Dyson.

For almost a decade, Dyson has invested over £100m into hair laboratories across the globe, employing thousands of hair scientists, engineers and professionals.

These expert teams have studied in detail everything from the structure of hair to airflow dynamics whilst understanding thermal, mechanical and chemical damage – and the subsequent effects on hair health.

To straighten hair, a combination of heat, tension and control is required – heat to break the hydrogen bonds in the hair, tension and compression to reshape these bonds and control to apply the heat and tension evenly.

Corralling Plate Technology

Dyson has developed a complex manganese copper alloy plate, featuring a carefully 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 ionising properties that help reduce static.

Unlike traditional straighteners, the unique flexing plates of the Dyson Corrale straightener mould to shape and gather the hair, giving the user greater control and better styling results, whilst reducing the reliance on heat.

As the plates adapt to the hair, they apply tension more evenly and stop strands splaying. This greater control allows outstanding styles to be created with less reliance on heat.

Intelligent Heat Control

The Dyson Corrale™ straightener has three heat settings – 165°C (330°F), 185°C (365°F) and 210°C (410°F).

These temperatures allow the user to tailor the settings to suit their hair type and desired style.

This adaptability, combined with the increased control provided by the flexing plates, allows users to style at lower temperatures without compromising on the results.

“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 an enhanced style and without excessive heat damage. We simply do not need the heat that others apply. We engineered unique flexing plates of magnesium copper, wired eroded to a precise accuracy of 65 microns to adapt to the shape of the hair tress. The copper plates wrap around the tress, applying even heat and tension to all the hair strands, keeping them aligned,” added Dyson.

Dyson hair scientists found that although temperature settings are present across the majority of conventional straighteners, the real time temperature being delivered from the plates can fluctuate significantly as the elements within the straightener respond to power source.

Like the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and the Dyson Airwrap styler, the Dyson Corrale straightener features Intelligent Heat Control technology.

Using a platinum sensor, the temperature is measured 100 times a second.

This technology communicates with a microprocessor which in turn controls the heating system delivering precise, accurate heat.

Four Cell Lithium-Ion Battery

Powered by a four-cell lithium-ion battery, the Dyson Corrale straightener delivers the same thermal performance of a corded product.

A flight mode feature also ensures the device meets air travel standards and can be packed in cabin luggage for travel.

The Dyson Corrale straightener fully recharges in just 70 minutes and provides up to 30 minutes of styling.

Placing the straightener into the charging dock at regular intervals whilst styling or alternatively attaching the magnetic 360° charging cable provides a hybrid charge mode for longer styling sessions.
