    I use this dryer almost everyday on my thick medium length hair. It has definitely reduced the frizz! Only cons are long cord, would be cool to have a retractable one!

      Curly, frizzy, thick fine hair. This dryer has made my hair so manageable. Does not make my hair fly when drying. Smooth even fast blow time.
      Highly recommend.
      Ulta is now my favorite beauty store.

              Bought this dryer based off of the reviews and regret it! I have long thin hair and this dryer makes my hair an absolute rats nest. I tried the attachments but it didn't help. You know how your hair feels after riding in a convertible? That's what it's like!

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

                      A:

                      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!
