Our hair is our crowning glory, so it’s only natural that we want to get the best when we’re looking for new haircare products to try.  Ensuring they’re made out of quality ingredients is always the first order of business so we know we’re investing in something worth our dime. That’s why we appreciate that more and more beauty brands are becoming transparent about their ingredients and processes. One such brand is Moist Diane, who, through their all-new Diane Bonheur haircare range, shows their commitment to bringing you luxurious locks with the help of natural ingredients.

Diane Bonheur product launch held at NOKA at Funan Mall.


Last 27 August, Japan’s leading haircare brand unveiled its artisanal range to take your haircare routine to the next level. The Diane Bonheur haircare range is lovingly made and formulated with over 98 per cent natural ingredients for a unique "farm-to-hair" experience. The brand worked with trusted farmers worldwide, carefully selecting everything — right from the soils and seeds down to their places of origin — to ensure you’re getting nature’s best in your bottle. The fragrances in the formula are all cultivated and extracted manually from Grasse, France. And because they only use cold-pressed single-origin oil, you can trace back the ingredients’ journey from its origin down through its production. Intrigued? Read on and get to know which of their artisanal products perfect for your hair troubles. 


Repair your hair

Constant perming and hair colouring are two of the major causes of dry hair. So we say, revitalise your tresses with Diane Bonheur haircare range’s Grasse Rose set. Cleanse your locks with the shampoo before nourishing with the treatment to deeply repair your hair from within. Aside from having locks that feel soft to the touch, you’ll enjoy the sweet and mellow scent of a rare rose variety from Grasse called Rose de Mai. 



Relax your locks

Not into hair treatment but still plagued by dry and dull hair? It might be caused by the hot climate we’re living in. We can’t really control the sun’s heat, but thankfully the Diane Bonheur Orange Flower range is here to save our locks. With the craft shampoo and treatment set, you can tame frizziness and restore the health of your strands. Get beautifully supple hair that smells refreshingly floral thanks to the Orange Flower or Neroli oil used in its formula.

As a long-time user and fan of the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, I was pretty excited when I received an invitation to Seoul for an exclusive media preview of Dyson’s newest developments.


While there, I learned quite a bit more about what goes behind their innovations, and the key to a good hair day.

The Science Behind Air & Hair


Dyson Media Event in Korea

Korean celebrity hairstylist Je Hee Park demonstrates how to use Dyson’s newest attachments.


According to Sam Burrowes, who hosted a session in his capacity as Advanced Design Engineer, New Product Development, Dyson conducted a global hair study on the attitudes and behaviours towards hair care and styling to truly understand the science of hair, and came up with solutions that thoroughly address the concerns and needs of users around the world.

Perhaps the most prevalent — and not entirely surprising — insights shared was that the top hair-related concern pertained to hair damage from excessive heat, use of styling products, and loss of shine; this was followed by worries about scalp health, with some consumers opting to air dry their hair rather than use hairdryers in order to protect their scalps.

This year — less than a year after the launch of the Dyson Airwrap that went viral online — the brand has unveiled its response after months of research and testing…


Improved Scalp Care & Styling with the new Dyson Supersonic hairdryer attachments


New Dyson Supersonic attachments launches late 2019

In answer to reviews on styling and drying with the Supersonic hairdryer, Dyson has launched a series of hair care and styling attachments that include a Smoothing Nozzle that controls airflow for a smooth, natural finish; the re-engineered Styling Concentrator and Diffuser for section-by-section precision styling and smoother curls respectively; and perhaps their most significant new haircare innovation — the Gentle Air attachment.

Having received substantial user feedback that the speed of air from the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer can be too strong, especially for those with a sensitive scalp or fine hair, Dyson designed and launched the Gentle Air attachment. Engineered for fast yet gentle styling, this accessory provides a softer, more diffused airflow while still drying hair quickly.

Tests were conducted to show the difference in the strength of air currents from the default Dyson Supersonic (left) and the Supersonic fitted with the Gentle Air attachment.


For users with colour-treated hair, the Gentle Air attachment also promises to help keep your hair colour’s brightness for longer thanks to lower hair drying temperatures.



According to top Korean celebrity stylist Je Hee Park, who also hosted the media session, the Gentle Air attachment reduces the amount of stimulation on the scalp significantly, compared with using the Supersonic without it. This is particularly helpful for users experiencing hair fall issues as lower scalp stimulation helps slow hair fall. She also shared that her clients find the drying process a lot more comfortable with the Gentle Air attachment, with fewer flyaways.


The Gentle Air attachment for the Dyson Supersonic is now available in Singapore at the Dyson Demo Store-Beauty Lab for SG49, and online on their website.

If you’re looking to get a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer for the first time, however, they now come already kitted with the Gentle Air attachment as well as the new smoothing nozzle, re-engineered Styling Concentrator, and Re-engineered Diffuser.

Easier Curling & Styling With New Dyson Airwrap Attachments

Long-haired Dyson Airwrap users, rejoice! Following numerous reviews indicating a need to curl each section of hair twice or even thrice in order to curl the entire length, Dyson has announced new 30mm and 40mm Airwrap barrels that are 50 per cent longer, to save time and energy. What this means is that users can look forward to being able to curl longer sections of hair in one pass, finally.

For longer-lasting curls, Park recommends using a nourishing treatment mousse on wet hair before curling it.

Dyson has also introduced a new pair of smoothing brush attachments that are smaller than their predecessor, making them easier to manoeuvre while also opening up new possibilities for users with different hair needs.

Not only do they make styling a breeze for those who grapple with frizzy hair on a daily basis, but they also offer added precision and control for the styling of bangs. Users with shorter hair can also look forward to creating C-curls with greater ease.

If the new Dyson Airwrap attachments have caught your interest, they will be launched in Singapore closer to the end of the year, so keep an eye out for them!
