    Comments about John Frieda 1 1/2" and 2" Rotating Hot Air Brush:

    Used this item a couple times. I have fine hair but a lot of it and frizzes if I don't put product in it. I was looking for something that gave me volume and I did not find that in this product. It was kind of loud but not my main con. I noticed it pulled out a lot of my hair maybe has something to do with the bristles. So if you have fragile hair maybe this product isn't for you. I also noticed it didn't give me volume. I was hoping for a blow out type of result but I did not get that even going over the same piece. Lastly I also wish the brush had a part at the end of the brush to hold on to, making it easier and more control.

      This product works great if you don't mind spending a while blow-drying your hair . However I can get better faster results using my dryer and round brush .

        I am returning this product. No heat, took my hair forever to dry, the brushes did not make my hair smooth it was frizzy. I bought it expecting a lot more than this product offers, especially for the price.

            Comments about John Frieda 1 1/2" and 2" Rotating Hot Air Brush:

            I saw this online and went looking for it at my local Ulta. I was a little skeptical because of some of the other reviews. I have very thick hair, cut in a chin length bob. This works awesome! I let my hair air dry for about 5 minutes before using the brush, my hair was still pretty wet, and I was able to dry and style in about 8 minutes! Usually I round brush with a hair dryer but because of tendinitis in my wrists, it is very difficult, this took half the time and is very light weight, didn't bother my wrists at all. Would highly recommend for anyone with short hair!

            Comments about John Frieda 1 1/2" and 2" Rotating Hot Air Brush:

            I bought this product because I know absolutely nothing about hair and my Mom told me I needed to get an "ionic dryer" during Spring Break. I just recently bleach and colored my hair, it was my first time and I turned my long, dark brunette hair to a light lilac so it's really fryed. But after using this hairdryer (it takes a little too long, the heat is weak even on "high" but it's not too bad) my hair feels soft and sleek, and goes back to the low amount of frizz it was before bleaching. My hair still feels really healthy even though it isn't! It didn't give me lift like the box said it would, but it was extremely easy to use and I'm very happy with it- as someone who has no talent styling hair.

                I had high hopes for this considering all the good reviews but I think it's going back. First of all it doesn't get hot at all and even after I'm done with tool I have to use a curling iron to reduce the frizz.. I haven't tried it right out of the shower only when my hair is damp so I don't know if that's the issue but I'm trying it one more time and then most likely taking it back.

                My hair is shoulder length, curly and thick. I have to dry it first or spray to wet it a little bit. It makes big curls and they last all day.

                  I bought this looking for a one handed , all in one product as I am going to have shoulder surgery. It is reasonable heavy, and takes a long time to dry hair. It does not curl hair but it does brush and smooth.

                  I hope I can find 1-1.5 inch or smaller rotating brush hair dryer styler. It does a nice job drying my baby fine hair but the brush sizes were too large for my short.hair cut I did not have any static problems after drying my hair.
