5 tips for using your new Wave+Curl diffuser

  • 1.

    Before styling, decide which mode is best suited to your particular hair type:
    Dome mode – best for wavy or curly hair
    Diffuse mode – best for curly or coily hair

  • 2.

    Apply your favourite product to clean, towel-dried hair before using the attachment. This will encourage style retention and definition.

  • 3.

    While styling, hold the diffuser still at the root, to avoid creating unwanted frizz.

  • 4.

    When finished, use the Cold shot function to set your style.

  • 5.

    After styling in Dome mode, if you need to dry the roots more, switch to Diffuse mode and hover-dry.

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.

  • Removing the filter cage

    Step 1

    Hold the handle of your machine firmly and gently rotate the filter cage anti-clockwise.

  • Wiping the filter with a cloth

    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.

  • Cleaning the filter with a toothbrush

    Step 3

    Do not use water to clean the filter mesh, and try not to apply too much pressure when cleaning.

  • Replacing the filter cage

    Step 4

    Move the filter cage back into position until correctly aligned, and rotate clockwise to lock before use.1

Frequently asked questions

We recommend cleaning the filter once a month. Regular care of your Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryer will help maintain its optimal performance.

Remove and wash the magnetic filter cage in warm, soapy water, soaking for at least 30 minutes, before rinsing and drying. Wipe the filter itself clear of debris using a clean, dry cloth.

You’ll find full cleaning instructions on the Dyson YouTube channel.

Previous Dyson Supersonic™ styling attachments will fit the Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryer* but will not be compatible with the newer machine’s Attachment learning feature.

* With the exception of the Wide-tooth comb.

Our exclusive edition Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryer in Vinca blue and topaz – only available at or the Dyson Demo Store – comes with a complimentary Presentation case to store the machine and protect attachments.

For different Dyson Supersonic™ models, other Presentation cases are available to buy separately from our accessories page.

Pause detect is always on, unless a diffuser attachment is connected. It uses a motion sensing accelerometer to know when the hair dryer stops moving – automatically cutting heat and minimising airflow.

So that Pause detect only activates when the machine is put down – and not for every momentary pause while styling – we deliberately programmed in a fractional delay of 240ms. To be sure Pause detect has activated, wait for the motor sound to ramp down before lifting your hand off the hair dryer.

Yes. Intelligent styling attachments come preset with recommended airflow and heat settings – customisable by you. Simply adjust these settings to suit your routine.

Gentle air attachment* – High heat / High flow
Styling concentrator* – High heat / Medium flow
Wide-tooth comb – High heat / High flow
Wave+Curl diffuser – Medium heat / Medium flow
Flyaway attachment – Low heat / High flow

All Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryers offer fast drying and styling, but each is engineered to meet specific needs. For help choosing the right machine for you, visit our handy comparison table.

To reach the back of your head, it helps to rotate your styling attachment 45° and slowly dry or style from the root downwards. For more detailed styling instructions, watch our how-to video guides.

We engineer all our attachments to remain comfortably cool around their outside edges. We recommend holding these cooler edges when rotating or removing an attachment.

The Scalp protect button is located on the top of the clear and circular end-cap of the hair dryer. Press this to toggle Scalp protect mode on and off. The capsule illumination will also turn off if Scalp protect mode is deactivated.
