Martin McCurtis from Jackson, Mississippi has built a revolutionary machine that reduces the time to dry women’s hair by more than 50 percent. It’s called the Momentum UpFlow hair dryer, and although it’s not yet available in stores, McCurtis has a fully functioning, slick prototype available, and investors are very interested.

Coming up with the idea

Martin says that he grew tired of waiting on his wife to dry her hair. The whole process took hours, so he decided to create a hooded hair dryer that cuts the time in half. In as little as 30 minutes, a woman’s hair can be completely dry.

To create the invention, he says he used his understanding of the principals of evaporation.

“It directs hot air, meant for drying, in an upper direction, once it makes contact with the moisture in the hair, the moisture turns to vapor and there is an exhaust fan at the crown of the head that pulls out the excess humidity and this upward air flow actually draws fresh air into the breathing space of the user,” McCurtis explained during an interview with WJTV 12.

Making the experience more enjoyable

Martin’s machine is more comfortable, cooler, and safer than traditional hair dryers.

It reduces and almost eliminates excess perspiration/ sweat during the drying process, and dries women’s hair without the usual extreme discomfort caused by hot air/vapor being forced into the breathing space of users.

In addition, because it reduces the time needed to dry a woman’s hair, this greatly reduces exposure to damaging heat that dries out the moisture, minerals, vitamins and vital nutrients necessary for healthy hair.
