One of the biggest complaints we hear about the cult-fave Dyson Airwrap is that the curls and waves fall too quickly, leaving certain hair types flat. Well, a TikToker swears she found the Dyson Airwrap curls hack that made her straight hair look full, wavy and voluminous for literally to dawn† And the secret? It’s under $20 and available on Amazon.
“The product I wish I’d known about when I first got my Dyson Airwrap,” says Annabelle Hooper in a TikTok video. “Like many of you, I struggled in the beginning and since sharing this tip, many of you figured it out.” Hooper says she was “born straight hair” and couldn’t get her bouncy curls to last. But applying Schwarzkopf Got2b Beach Matte Salt Spray ($17.79 at Amazon) completely changed the game.
After applying a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant, Hooper dries her hair about 80-90 percent. Then she applies the sea salt spray all over her hair before using the barrels.
“The reason I know this works is because I changed when my Dyson Airwrap started working for me,” she says. “But also adding texture and grit to your hair helps it hold the style, especially with hair that tends to be straight and doesn’t want to cling to a round brush, a chatty look.”
Hooper is right. Adding texture to super clean hair can help your style last much longer. It could be a sea salt spray like the one above or even a leave-in mousse designed for waves. Hooper even tried mousse and had great results. In another video, she applies the Charles Worthington Thicker Fuller Mouse in place of the sea salt spray and she hit some serious volume.
The moral of the story? Don’t be afraid to use hair products that make the Dyson Airwrap work best for your hair. And if you’d like to try the new-and-improved Airwrap Styler, it’s somehow in stock at Sephora.
