It would be nice to have smaller head for short hair. You must dry your hair to damp to use.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      This is a great tool for thinner hair. I do not have to be bothered with first drying the hair and then using another hot iron. This is all in one for my thinner hair. In just a few minutes I'm able to dry my hair and have it fluffed and slightly curled by this tool. The bristles are great since they're not stiff like some brush dryers. These bristles grip my hair nicely allowing me to curl it and dry it. I love this hot air brush and recommend to anyone who doesn't have extra thick hair.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      I would like to use an analogy to describe this product:

      This product is like a pair of tweezers. You could use only tweezers to maintain your eyebrows and have great brows. Anyone can use tweezers, they are simple to use and precise, but it will take you more time to maintain your brows. Using wax or other methods involves more tools and more skills, but it can be much faster and get the same result.

      In summary, the blowdryer feature on this thing is so wimpy. It takes longer to blow-dry my hair with this tool, but my hair looks silkier and smoother because I lack the skills to blow dry my hair properly using a traditional blowdryer and a round brush. I will continue to use this tool, but I hope they develop a more high powered version soon because I don't like how long it takes to dry the hair.

        This hot air brush worked great on my chin length wavy/curly hair. Bristles are just the right length so hair doesn't get tangled. Dries and smooths hair quickly. Much simpler than using blow dryer and brush.

              This little hot air brush is perfect for my shoulder length hair. I blow dry my hair or let it dry until about 90% dry. (Directions say to do so.) Then use it for styling my thick and fine hair. Works faster than blow drying with a brush and styling with flat iron or curling iron.

                  Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                  I've been growing out a super short pixie for about a year and 3 months, and my hair is extreeeeemeley thick and wavy. So basically, my hair has looked really awkward and uncute since I started growing it out. When I straighten it with a flat iron, it looks stiff and shapeless. When I blowdry it, it looks poofy as heck. The only style I've been able to do is heatless, scrunchy curls that I'm getting kinda tired of because I want to show off the length of my hair now that I'm finally getting to the stage where it's transitioning into a short bob. Let me tell you, if you're like me, this tool is absolutely AMAZING. It's perfect for my thick, frizzy hair, and leaves me with a salon quality look. Nothing awkward, shapeless, or stiff. But also not frizzy or overly wavy. It also leaves my hair super shiny and bouncy. I usually use a drugstore heat protectant and follow up with some argon oil. Love love love!
