          It's somewhat heavy and does not dry hair quick. The concentrator also has holes in it so the hair looks frizzy and not sleek

                    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                    It works very well, and is also quieter than many other hair dryers. The only thing that has me considering returning it, is the placement of the on/off and heat control switches. They are placed on the handle exactly where you grip/hold it to style hair! And there really isn't anywhere else to grasp it! So, it often times on/off or changes heat setting, as switches are EXACTLY where the handle is, and flip in such a way that it easily gets hit while styling. Causing extra time to turn back on or fix setting multiple times,as there's no where else to grasp it and avoid this issue! Which is pretty annoying! If it weren't for this engineering flaw(as per placement of switches), it is wonderful otherwise! But not worth the inevitable constant interruptions in the long run!!!!!
                    Also, the "hot" setting is not very hot. Describing it as warm would be generous! But still worked well, if design flaw didn't cause it to constantly switch off or change setting, as per placement on handle!

                          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!
