The patent-pending unit is said to be integrated with the similar technology behind the company's vacuum cleaners.
Dyson Ltd, a Britain-based technology company best known for inventing the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner, is further expanding its innovations from house appliances to hair care products. In 2016, founder James Dyson introduced the supersonic hair dryer, a handheld bladeless fan-like unit that adopts air multiplier technology to dry hair evenly. Now the multinational appliance manufacturer is planning to launch a revamped version of the hair brush, this time inspired by the vacuum cleaner.
The patent-pending unit will feature a similar technology used in Dyson's vacuum cleaners. According to the patent submitted to the UK Intellectual Property Office, the mains-powered and baton-shaped hair brush is designed to blast hot or cold air to dry and style hair more effectively. Aside from blowing air, the slots on the product's tube body serve as a catch basin for the excess fluid, which can be emptied by removing the brush's detachable head. These apertures also help prevent clogs from grooming products such as sprays, gels and mousses.
As regards styling, the hair brush is equipped with rows of single and double bristles to create various volumes of curls. The unit can be used like a regular brush by temporarily disabling the heater.
The company Dyson may roll out more reinvented and modern beauty-related products, following the warm response of consumers to the aforementioned supersonic hair dryer. L'Oreal seems to be following suit, introducing at CES 2017 a sensor-equipped smart hair brush that teaches users how to properly brush hair, thereby reducing damage.
