              Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

              This hair dryer seems to dry my hair relatively quickly and does not have burning hot high heat. The down side seems to be that I'm having a hard time getting as much volume into my thin hair as I used to.

                    I was looking for a smaller, light-weight dryer to replace my Conair that broke after 7 years. I was looking for power, but also a dryer that didn't weigh 9 pounds. This dryer fit the bill. It's light weight, offers multple heat settings as well as blower settings. What I especially liked is that I could try it in the Ulta store. It was plugged in and was the lightest dryer with the lowest amount of noise. Great purchase.

                      Very lightweight and quiet. Have had to replace 2 hairdryers just because the air nozzle became so loose it wouldn't stay on. Not the case with this one as it is locked on very tight.

                          The dryer is not loud but it is not a silent dryer. It is quieter than most.

                        Would this compact dryer work well as a travel dryer (for example in Japan)?

                          The John Frieda Dryer is not dual voltage, so you would need both a converter and adapter to use this dryer in another country. However, this dryer is smaller than other Conair dryers so it would work well for traveling!

The John Frieda Compact Dryer also has a DC motor while the John Frieda Volume Dryer has an AC motor. The John Frieda Volume dryer includes 2 concentrators and the John Frieda Compact Dryer includes one concentrator.
