        Finally, a drier that doesn't frizz out my perm. It keeps individual curls, and helps get that "wiry, thready look" that I have been trying to achieve.

              This is the first hairdryer I've purchased in about ten + years and I was amazed and how lightweight, yet powerful this little guy was. My old dryer took me almost an hour to dry my hair this one takes 15 to 20 mins.

                I like this dryer just fine. However,
                I think I would rather have a round concentrated than the oblong.

                  Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                  I first used this dryer at a friend's house out in California a few weeks ago & jokingly told her "don't be surprised if it ends up in my bag when I leave." In fact, it was the first thing I went to buy the day after I got back.
                  I have super thick hair that soaks up water like a sponge. Even getting a long pixie cut didn't seem to help my dry time since I still had to use the hottest setting & fastest speed. So, to find a hair dryer that I can use on the warm setting & low speed is amazing!

                    I always look for a small, light weight dryer as it takes a long time to dry my thick wavy hair and this has been very good. The controls are well placed and easy to switch from high to low or change heat settings. I intend on buying another one to have on hand when this one wears out!

                      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                      I really wanted to keep this hairdryer because it was lightweight and had a short barrel, which is easier on my arms. But unfortunately it tended to dry out my hair even though it was ionic. So I had to keep a more expensive ionic model that had a slightly longer barrel, was a little louder, and slightly heavier.

                        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!

                          The John Frieda Compact Dryer is smaller in size than the John Frieda Volume Dryer. 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.
