    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

    Because of a stroke, i i can only use one hand to style my hair. Thank goodness I found this tool!!! It adds just the right amount for fullness and body to my hair style without a bunch of brushes . Use the cool setting to add extra hold after you have your curl heated for a few
    seconds.

    I wanted to be able to dry and style my hair. It doesn't dry easily. Also the speed buttons are difficult to set and in a bad location

      I have a love/hate relationship with this blower. I have purchased 4 in the last 1.5 years. It last about 3 or 4 months and then the fan stops working and it starts smoking. When it works, it works great.

      Takes too long on thick hair

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

        It's not that I dislike this... it's just not enough for my thick hair. I was looking for something that would help shorten my drying time (rough/brush dry to about 75-80% then finish with this) but it took sooooo loooong to finish. I had to work in smaller sections and keep going over and over. I like the combination of bristles and the boar bristles really help give you a sleek finish.... but in order to get out all the "poof" and most of the frizz from my hair, it could not be an everyday thing. And even if I wanted to make my hair REALLY look good, I'd still have to finish with a curling iron. This would be fine for an everyday look, but just takes too long.

        I am confident this would be a good choice if you have thinner hair. It was very easy to use. Also - I was worried that it would get tangled in my hair, but did not, so that was a plus.

        I will probably return this.

        FWIW, the girl at the store that I asked about it steered me away from the Revlon similar product I was going to purchase. So - it's probably better than the Revlon one, at least.

          I use to use rolling brush and blow dryer. Now I just blow dry to 80% dry and finish with this awesome tool. Gives me grèat body and no more frizz for my fine thin long hair. Use it daily.

              Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

              This does a great job smoothing those fly away hairs. It made a gentle bend in my hair but I don't think it would make a tight curl. The bristles hold the hair but they are far enough apart that the hair doesn't tangle. I was really surprised how well it works. You can easily control setting while using and it even has a cool setting. Works much better than the ones with plastic bristles. I do not use this as a hair dryer, only to style.

                    If you have long or thick hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hair dryer first to rough-dry your hair and remove the excess moisture. For added volume, turn your head upside down as you dry. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style.

                • Q:

                  My hair is very curly. I'm looking for a hot air brush that will straighten and smooth my hair with minimal heat damage and styling time. I would prefer something that rotates but what's drawing me to this one is that the barrel also heats up and it's not just blowing out hot air. For extremely curly hair what would you recommend to straighten it better the John Frieda hot air brush or the rotating air brush?

                    A:

                    The John Frieda (#JFHA7) and Infiniti Pro Hot Air (#BC178) units are great for very curly hair. Both have maximum ion output to reduce frizz, optional multidirectional rotation feature and tangle free bristles. They volumize and shine as you dry for 90% faster styling (compared to a Conair dryer and brush). The John Frieda Hot Air Brush also has an ionic generator that generates negative ions, which neutralize positive ions in the air. The neutralization process flattens and seals the hair cuticle, reducing frizz and leaving the hair shiny and more manageable. Pro Tips: If you have long or thick hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hair dryer first to rough-dry your hair and remove the excess moisture. For added volume, turn your head upside down as you dry. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using either styler. Both are great options for taming curls and getting a silky smooth look.
